NOT A LEGAL TENDER.-The other day a sharp
looking youth walked up quickly to the counter of
the post office in a town not a hundred miles from
Newcastle, and emptying a bag of coppers thereon,
asked the clerk who was attending to other cus-
tomers for five shillings' worth of penny stamps.-
" Oh, you be bothered ?" was the answer. That's
not a legal tender; it is all copper."-'"What is a
legal tender then?" asked the boy.-" Why, one
penny is a legal tender for a penny stamp."-" Oh,"
exclaimed the youth, "is it? Come on then"-
passing a coin from the heap-" a penny stamp
please." The clerk gave him one. "Another,
please." A second was given him. "Ano- "-
" Here, stop that," the clerk said ; "give me the
money. It will be the shortest way to get rid of
you."-After counting the money, he gave the
value thereof in stamps to the lad, who was heard
to mutter. "Aa thowt aa would lire him oct !"

lieve, be of special design, and not the ordinary

be rendered distinct from the little frontier cam-
paiglns of the last few years. This notwithstanding
that in one at least of the columns there has been
little or no bloodshed.-Army and Navy Gazette,

THE WAR IN SOUTH AFRICA.
There is every reason to believe that th'e war in
South Africa has been brought to a close, as a
decisive victory was won by Lord Chelmsford's
forces over the Zulus on the 4th July-particulars
of which will be found below.
In support of the opinion that the war is closed
is the report that the British Admiralty hasordered
all the Indian troop-ships to be in readiness for six
months' continuous service, with the view of bring-
ing home the troops from the scene of war in South
Africa.
It is stated that Lord Chelmsford contemplates
immediate resignation.


THE ZULU WAR. ,
A message from Lord Chelmsford, dated, on the
30th of June, says: "I have just informed the
Zulu King that I must advance to the left bank of
the river. I shall do s') to-morrow, but I will stop
hostilities, pending negotiations, if my demands
relative to the captured cannon, &c., are complied
with by July 3. My supplies will only permit of
my remaining here until July 10. A white man
with King Cetywayo states that the King has 20,-
000 men. The King is anxious to fight but the
princes are not."
LONDON, July 22.-The Standard's correspondent,
at Magnibonum, under date of June 30, mentions
a skirmish with the Zulus on June 26. Messen-
gers from Cetywayo asked the British not to burn
6 kraals which they specified. The request was re-
fused. Bullers horse then advanced, when the Zu-
lus fired the kraals themselves. A large Zulu
force appeared, but on the guns opening fire they
fled. Buller pursued and cut down twelve of the
enemy.

BRITISH VICTORY IN SOUTH AFRICA-
A BATTLE THAT WILL PROBABLY
END THE WAR.
LONDON, July 23.-In the House of Commons
this afternoon Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, the Co-
lonial Secretary, announced the receipt of a tele-
gram dated Cape Town, July 8, containing news of
a decisive victory gained by Lord Chelmsford's
forces over the Zulus.
Lord Chelmsford remained in camp till the
afternoon of July 3, awaiting the surrender of the
cannon and 1,000 rifles captured by the Zulus at
Isandula. These not arriving, he advanced and
was attacked in the open country by 15,000 Zulus,
who fled under the heavy fire of the British. Lord
Chelmsford then advanced to and destroyed Ulundi.
The Zulu loss amounted to 800; the British lost
10 killed and 53 wounded.
The battle was fought on July 4 The Zulus,
variously estimated at from 10,000 to 20,000 in
number surrounded the British troops, who formed
into a hollow square. The Zulus charged the
square on all four of its sides. After the Zulus
were broken by the British fire they were pursued
by the cavalry and utterly routed. Lord Chelms-
ford burned and destroyed all the military kraals
and returned to his camp the same evening.
A detailed official telegram from Lord Chelms-
ford says: Cetywayo not only failed to comply
with my demands for the return of the cannon, &c.,
but fired heavily on our watering parties. I con-
sequently returned the cattle he had sent in, and
ordered a recognisance by Colonel Buller's horse.
This caused the Zulu army to advance and show
itself on the morning July 4. My force consisting
of General Newdigate's division and General
Wood's column, aggregating 4,000 Europeans and
and 1,000 natives, with twelve cannon and two
Gatlings, crossed the Umoolosi River at 6 15 a.m.
The force reached an excellent position between
Enadwengo and Ulundi about 8-30 a.m. The
Zulu army had been observed leaving its bivouacs
about 7-30. The engagement was shortly after
commenced by the mounted men. By 9 o'clock
the Zulu attack was fully developed. By 9 30 the
enemy wavered, and the Lancers, followed by the
remainder of the cavalry, attacked them, and a
general rout ensued. Prisoners state that King
Cetywayo was personally commanding, and wit-
nessed the fight from a neighboring krall. Ulundi
was burning at noon. The steadines of our troops,
who at one time during the engagement were under
a complete belt of fire, was remarkable. The dash
and enterprise of the cavalry was all that could be
wished. A large body of Zulus surrendered after
the battle. They are also coming in in large
numbers on General Crealock's line of advance.
Sir Garnet Wolseley telegraphs from Durban on
the 8th of July as follows: "I have halted all
reinforcements here, as I believe the war is ove".
Do not send any more men or supplies till you
hear from me. 1 expect to meet the great Zulu
chief about the 16th instant, and discuss terms of
peace with him."
LONDON, July 23.-A dispatch to Reuter's Tele.
gram Company from Cape Town, dated July 8,
says: It is reported that Cetywayo fled northward
the day before the battle of Ulundi."
LONDON, July 24.-A dispatch to the Standard,
dated Ulundi, July 4, reports that Cetywayo wit-
nessed the beginning of the fight, but retired
when the Zulus began to retreat.,
The Times's correspondent at Ulundi, under date
of July 4, says: "It is stated that Cetywayo five
days ago sent 400 head of cattle with peace mes-
sengers to the British, but they were stopped by
--one of the Zulu regiments, who declared that no
peace should be made until they were beaten. The
prisoners say that Cetywayo opposed the war. They
admit that the entire Zulu force was present at the
-battle of Ulundi. The Zulu loss is estimated at
about 1,500. The two guns taken at Isandula were
found.
- LONDON, July 24.--Special dispatches from South
Africa show that when the troops entered Ulundi
they found that everything of value had been re-
moved to a new kraal, built by King Cetywayo
.when the war broke out, 15 miles north of Ulundi,
'~nd approached only through a long and narrow
ravine. King Cetywayo has some of his chief regi-
ments with him as a body guard.
- The correspondents at the seat of war, though
all agreeing that the victory over the Zulus was
decisive, express at the same time some doubts as
to whether King Cetywayo will immediately come


to terms.
The Times's correspondent, however, says the
question whether Cetywayo will surrender or not
is of little importance, as in the event of his prov-
ing stubborn, the British can place his brother
Oham, who surrendered some time ago, in posses-
sion of the lower and far more fertile part of Zulu-
land, and, by assuring Oham some little-support at
the commencement of his reign, establish a com-
plete bulwark between Cetywayo and the British
colonies. The continuation of the war would be an
arduous and fruitless task, as beyond Ulundi the
country is a wilderness, where the difficulties of
transportation would exceed anything yet experi-
enced.


I he'official return of the British losses does not
include those among the native contingent.
The Zulus werecompelled to pause by the heavy
fire when they arrived within sixty yards of the
British square. Eye. witnesses differ greatly as to
the persistency with which the Zulus pressed the
attack. This probably arises from the various
positions from which they witnessed it. The most
circumstantial narrative shows that the Zulus came
with a magnificent rush, in dense masses on the
rear of the square, and seemed determined to get to
close quarters. Their attack on the left flank was
not nearly so determined, as that was protected
by a Gatling gun, which the Zulus greatly dread.
The estimates of the Zulu losses vary so greatly
as to shew that they are pure guessing, the highest
is 1,500. The dead were seen lying thickly all
around the square.
In the pursuit of the flying enemy several officers
of the Lancers killed four Zulus each.


thorne, was a very lively and affectionate wife and
acted her part with much sprightliness and grace.
Mr. Phayre made a very good Sam Gaythorne and
Dr. McCutchan, as Col. Berners, added a vigor and
force which carried the play through with great
spirit.
A Fair Encounter," the second piece given on
Monday evening was very much better. It is one of
those bright and witty plays that are universal
favourites. On this occasion it was acted by Mrs.
Rawson. and Miss Laffan, with a heartiness, crisp-
ness and vivacity that was positively delicious.
We cannot say enough in their praise.
I am sure your readers will agree with me in
giving great credit to Lady Laffan, Captain Grieve,
the Stage Manager, and their assistants, for the
ability, energy and perseverance with which they
have originated and carried to a successful conclu.
sion, these series of performances, which have so
delighted us all.
I subscribe myself your obedient servant,
PEMBROKE.

DEAR MR. EDITOR,-As you and your readers are
well aware, a series of Dramatic Performances by
Officers and Ladies of the Garrison, under the Pa-
tronage of His Excellency the Governor, in aid of
the funds of the Royal School for Officers
Daughters at Bath, were given at the Royal En-
gineer Theatre in Prospect Camp, on the evenings
of Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday, July
24th, 25th, 28th and 29th. It was my good fortune
to be present on Thursday and Monday evenings
and with your permission I will briefly give my
impressions of the plays and players as presented
upon those occasions.
On each evening the house was crowded to its
utmost capacity with a sympathetic and highly ap-
preciative audience drawn together by an unusual
attraction,-the appearance of Lady Laffan, and the
excellence of the cause she came forward to repre-
sent. The play was Ours," a Comedy in three
acts by T. W. Robertson, a well written play, lively
and brilliant, and sure to be appreciated by soldiers,
the introduction of martial music by a full band
into two of the acts giving a thrilling effect to the
same.
But for the actors the Play is not an easy one.
Full of action, the dialogues short, crisp and epi-
grammatic, the by-play frequent, they were re-
quired to be constantly on the alert, not only to fill
their own parts but to have each work well with
the other, as witness the double dialogue so
successfully performed in the first act.
It was exceedingly well put upon the stage, real
trees gave a picturesque and natural effect to the
garden scene, the howling winds and drifting
snows of a winter in the Crimea were closely imi-
tated and the actors well in accord with each other
united in giving a correct, smooth, and spirited
rendering of the play.
Lady Laffan, as Lady Shendryn, seemed to enter
intuitively into the genius of the character she re-
presented and assumed it with much grace and
naturalness. Nothing could be more spirited than
the jealous quarrel in the first act between Lady
Shendryn and Sir Alexander (Mr. Beauchamp) while
seated -beneath the trees seeking shelter from a
passing shower. In the drawing room scene where
she discoursed to the young ladies on marriage in
the heartless tone of the fashionable world, her
voice, manner and gestures were true to the life
and in the parting scene with Sir Alexander as he
leaves for the Crimea she evinced intense feeling
and exceedingly good action.
Miss Laffan is a thoroughly good actress. Hand-
some, graceful, well up in her part, she is at perfect
ease upon the stage and faces her audience with a
nerve that few Amateurs possess. She sustained
the part of Blanche Haye in an admirable manner.
In the love scene in the first act, where she seeks
shelter from the rain under the trees with her
Cousin Angus (Captain Grieve) she formed a strik-
ing tableau, his hat and coat, which she wore for
protection, adding much to the novel effect. In
the third act, in playing at soldiers she was very
lively and amusing, and in the second act, in the
interviews with Prince Petrovsky (Mr. Rawson)
distant and cold; evincing much enthusiasm as the
Band played Annie Laurie" and the troops went
off to the war, and sinking into well-feigned des-
pair as Angus with a hasty embrace left her side to
join them.
Mrs. Rawson has often charmed us by her de-
lightful personations and in her best characters she
is simply perfect, as Mary Netley she sustained her
well merited reputation and in scenes too frequent-
ly recurring to be mentioned, she by her spirit and
vivacity added greatly to the success of the piece.
Mr. Eden in assuming the important role of
Hugh Chalcot undertook no easy task. He is an
accomplished actor, with great ease of manner and
on this occasion he performed his part with a cool
self-possession delightful to behold and which the
audience were not slow to recognize.
The part of Angus MacAlister was ably represent-
ed by Captain Grieve who brought with him an
excellent reputation gained in other fields. He
assumed the character with much skill and appre-
ciation and was equally at home in it, whether as
the gallant soldier, the poor and disconsolate lover
or the successful suitor.
The part of Sir Alexander Shendryn was very well
taken by Mr. Beauchamp, who seemed to grow
better and better as the play progressed, In the
third act he was particularly good.
Mr. Rawson is an excellent actor, wonderfully
good in his representations of foreign characters.
As Prince Petrovsky he assumed the manner of a
distinguished and excessively polite Russian, was
wonderful in his command of broken English,
which he held throughout the play, and managed
the declaration scenes with Miss Hare (Miss Laf-
fan), coming as they did at singularly inopportune
moments, with exquisite skill.
Captain Farwell, as Sergeant Jones, made a pro-
minent character of his part by his careful render-
ing, and gave the play an excellent start.
Mr. Morrison did more than ordinarily well as
the Gamekeeper and again as Captain Samprey.
The performances on Thursday evening ended
with the Farce "Cut off with a Shilling," a piece
in which there is so much action, particularly of
voice, that it might with propriety be called a
"Roaring Farce." Miss Bremner, as Kitty Gay.


For the Royal Gazette.
DEAR MR. EDITOR,-You really must not flatter
yourself that you can always have such numerous
accounts of the doings in Bermuda sent you! Of
late we have had such delightful and frequent
theatricals that there has been great field for send-
ing you interesting letters; but I fear me this
must soon end as the heat of the weather must ren-
der acting a very arduous performance to our kind
friends. All the more reason for sending you full
particulars of the theatricals on Tuesday night.
Judging by the acting we had seen from some of
the same company in the School for Coquettes"
not long since, we expected something very good,
and our interest and expectation was heightened on
seeing the name of Lady Laffan on the programme
and learning this was her first appearance on the
boards. Everyone knows what a good piece Ours"
is, and that it is by no means an easy undertaking
for amateurs. The arranging alone of the scenery
is no sinecure, and the procuring of suitable pro-
perties (amongst them be it mentioned snow, rain,
wind, &c.) must have caused great pains and trouble.
Carried out under the most able of managers, the
piece lacked nothing in its putting on- the stage,
while the beautiful Band of the 46th did its part to
perfection and often made me echo the sentiment
of that bright little Mary Netley"-" I'd like to
be a Soldier." "Lady Shendryn did her part to
perfection, both with grace and dignity, and her
appearance lent a great charm to the piece-from
her opening gracious speech about allowing Mrs.
Jones the use of the cottage," to the closing one
where conscience stricken she tells her husband
" My love I know all"-all was good. We con-
gratulate her on her success, and also on the man-
ner in which she finally settles those girls "Blanche
and Mary," who we think were quite enough for
any chaperone to take in charge, though doubtless
she would easily have found somebody to relieve
her of all the responsibility had she tried. The
part of "Blanche Haye" was very well sustained-
there is a slight strain of melancholy, and reserve
running through it which suited the Actress, and
very touchingly did she render the parting from her
" Cousin Angus," with whom she is in love, con-
trary to the ambitious wishes of her guardian who
urges the marriage with the Prince. When in the
end she declares she is going to have the poor man
and refuse the rich one, I could not suppress a
sigh of relief at all having ended happily. "Mary
Netley," that sprightly little companion, did her part
very well; it suited her to perfection and she
seemed at home in it. No amount of snubbing
seemed to suppress the little lady-and she certainly
could not have been said to encourage Hugh Chal-
cot's" addresses, though from the change in her
tone and manner when she found she had hurt his
sore leg, we guessed how it would end. The scene
where Chalcot declares his love for her was very
prettily done, leaving nothing to be wished for.
The hut scene was perhaps the most effective. The
graceful figures of the young girls playing sol-
diers" in front with the dignified figure of Lady
Shendryn seated at the back evidently more eager
respecting her husband than she wished to be ap-
parent, formed a pretty tableau which was greatly
added to by the appearance on the scene of the offi-
cers, fresh from active service. Why does not
Madam Fashion invent something in the Helmet
style for the ladies to wear P "Are all Helmets as
becoming as that one ?" a young friend asked me ?
Why the game of soldiers was enchanting, I wish-
ed so much to go and play too, and if all monkies
on organs" were as pretty we should be encouraging
the Organ Grinders to such an extent that we'd
have to take out a special Act of Parliament.
" Hugh Chalcot's" acting cannot be too highly
praised-that young gentleman has mistaken his
vocation in not going on the stage. He is well-
known on the boards in Bermuda and we always
look at his acting with intense pleasure. On this
occasion he had a part which suited him beautifully
and to which he did full justice. Sir Alex. Shen-
dryn both in appearance and style, was well suited
in his part, and was admirable throughout. The
"Sergeant" was a perfect Sergeant, he is a wonder-
ful actor Captain Farwell to be so good in the very
finest parts we so lately have seen him take, and
equally good in so opposite a character as that of
" Sergeant Jones." Prince Petrovsky was a fa-
mous Prince. His foreign accent was capitally
assumed and not overdrawn, which is so often the
failure with amateurs. His acting throughout the
piece was very admirable and especially where he
urged his suit with "Blanche Haye," worthy of
very high praise. Angus MacAlister" had a dif-
ficult but successful part-it suited him and he did
it well-his parting with Blanche and receiving a
token from her was much appreciated. We heard
it is to the pains and trouble which this Gentleman
has taken we are indebted for our charming even-
ings. It must be a great satisfaction to him to
know how thoroughly enjoyed the performance has
been, and that it is generally allowed to be the best
we have had for many a long day in Bermuda.
We all wanted some of that little' lady (Mary Net-
Thy's) pudding. Why should "Mr. Chalcot" be
the only one for whom she should have made it ?
But I must beg you to forgive my trespassing on
your space, dear Mr. Editor, and ask you kindly to
insert this if possible in your valuable paper.

OTTAWA, Oat., July 29, 1879.--Yesterday it was
rumored. throughout Lower Town that the Ottawa
Young Britons were going to make a raid on that
section of the city. Active preparations were made
by the police to give them a hot reception, but no
breach of the peace occurred. Writs have been
served en twelve persons for taking part in the
fight on Saturday night. The cases are to come up
for trial' on Friday next, when the public will be
surprised to see several respectable citizens arraign-
ed before the magistrate.

THE SEA SERPENT REPORTED.
HALIFAX, N. S., July 29, 1979.-Captain Samp-
son, of the schooner Louisa Montgomery, at Pic-
ton, reports that about ten miles eastward of Pietou
Island he saw an enormous sea serpent, which ap-
peared to be about one hundred feet long and about
the size of a barrel. It was going straight along at the
rate of seven knots an hour.
An important gold discovery has been made at
the Montague mines, 6 miles from Dartmouth.
There is considerable excitement among.the gold
miner. '

YELLOW FEVER.-In Memphis the fever is'-fin-
fortunately spreadifig, there werq 13 new cases and
29 deaths on the 80th. .The much dreadedisease,
had also appeared at New Orleans; Cincinnati,
Louisville, St. Louis, Mo., and New York. The
Stewardess of the Bark ".Wallace", from Havana,
died of yellow fever at the Presbyterian Hospital,
New York on the 28th ultimo, where she.had been
removed from the W'llac"'a ob. te25th.
There were twenty vessels in Quarantine, below
New York from infected places, on the 381st ultimo.

five children were drowned inrr the siii't. The
steamer became a wreck.
SUGAR IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.-Thoe Hawaiian
Gazette says, We have often said, and we repeat ti
here, that no other country in the world 'can turn out
as much sugar to the acre, the Hawaiian Islandi, nor
of better quality. Only the other day we were in-
formed by a gentleman who has clirAkg 'of a sugar
plantation on one of the Islands, that he has one
hundred and sixty odd acres of cane that he,expects
to yield seven tons of sugar to the acre&: /Such a
yield is simply marvellous."
The Sandwich Islands want more laborers on their
sugar plantations and think that the southern
negroes would suit best for the work, especially.sipce
they might bring with them an equal number of
women. The present population of Hawaii shows two
men to every women on the Island, and the impor-
tation of Chinese would only make the proportions
worse.

Of General Grant and his wife in their poverty.
stricken days of 1861, a picturesque little story is
told. He had gone from Galena to Springfield to get
a captaincy in a regiment then being organized and
in his absence Mrs. Grant went to one of the Galena
shops and asked for a barrel of flour on credit, as
she had no money. H er request was refused, when
a bystander, who was also a merchant, approached
and told her she could have anything she wished
from his store. This kindness'in time of need was
never forgotten by Grant, and after he became
President he bestowed substantial favors upon this
good-hearted and patriotic grocer.

The following shipments of meat and livestock were
made in one day from New York : By the Erin, for
Liverpool, 176 head of cattle and 473 quarters of'fresh
beef ; by the Holland, for London, 316 head of cat-
tle, 18 horses and 58 mules; by the Devonia, for
Glasgow, 900 quarters of beef and 225 carcasses of
sheep; by the Baltic, for Liverpool, 50 tons of'beef.

It is stated that the Imperial Government has
advised the Marquis of Lorne to act upon the ad-
vice of his Ministers as far as possible, and accord-
ingly Lieutenant Governor Letellier of Quebec has
been removed and Dr. Robitaille appointed in his
stead.

G KI ELAT progress has been made within a few

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 he so considered. Those
packed 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 o
time in city markets. All goods bearing our

Secretary.
The following Messages from His Excellency the
Governor were delivered by His Excellency's Pri-
vate Secretary :-.-
(No. 11.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to lay before the
Honorable the Legislative Council the Annual Re-
port of the Board of Education for the year ended
81st December, 1878, and i'egrets to have to call
att'eifn to the remarks of the *T,'j:rd upon the
little progress made during the six years of its ex-
istence in promoting the cause of Public Edu6a-
tion.
The Governor entirely agrees with the Board in
c-nrs;tl'i.'!i that the time has arrived when some
more effective Legislation than the present should
be enacted providing larger funds for the purposes
of Public Education, and making it for the inter-
ests of all r'.:enft to send their obildren to School
or to provide them with some other means of tuition
instead of -allowing them to grow up in ignorance,
The Governor thinks that the suggestion made
by the Board that a sum of 300 a year should be
specially voted for some years to come to provide
for the better education of Teachers, is one well
worthy of the careful consideration of the Legisla-
ture.
The Governor agrees .also with the Board in
thinking that, it would be for the interests of the
community to increase the general Educational
Grant from 6700 to 1000 a year.
The proposal made that a School rate should be
levied in every Parish of G6d. per week to be paid by
the parent for every child of school age, is also
one d-serving the most careful consideration of the
Legislature. The suggestion that a certificate
given by any Schoolmaster or Schoolmistress or
Teacher approved by the Board shewing that a
payment of 6d per week or upwards had already
been made by the parents to such T'Pec'- is, and
that flie children had attended a School or other
place of tuition, should be received as money in
payment of the School rates, would practically
afford relief from those rates to all parents who
attended properly to the education of their children
and would confine the levyvof the rate to those who
regleeted their duties as parents by allowing their
children to grow lip In ignorance.
The Governor thinks that if Parish School
Boards were formed in each Parish consisting of
Magistrates and Parish Vest ies and perhaps of
Clergymen and others interested in the cause of
education, and if they were empowered to levy the
School rates and apply all moneys so levied to
purposes of Public Education, the pressure thus
brought to bear upon parents from above, combined
with the knowledge that if they did not pay the,
Schoolmaster they would have to pay the School
Board, would have the effect of ensuring a more
regular attendance at School and to promote the
improvement of the condition of the poorer classes.-

THE; TURKISA COMPLICATIONS.
OQNC51AiNOkp., July-30.-Pridce Alexander, of
Bulgaria, bas'telegraphed to the orte that Turkish
troops have violated Bulgarian territory, tear Dub-
nitza,.and that BashI-Batouks are pillaging and as-
sassinating, The Pfince demands their immediate
recall. .
LOnDON, July 30.-AA:Constantinop'e dispatch to
Reuter's Telegram Comp.any says : "At a Cabinet
Council last night, it Was resolved to adopt the
modifications demanded by the British and French
Ambassadors to Turkey, in the firman of investiture
of Tewfik' Pasha as Khbdive of Egypt. This re-
storek to the Khbdive all the privileges enjoyed by
Ismail Pasha under the firman of 1873, without any
reservation of the right to qonelude treaties."
BERLIN, July 30.-The North German Gazette, in
an article on the Roumanian question, points to the
attempts of Roumania to evade the treaty of Berlin
relative to the Jewish question, and says : "It will
not do to console onesself with the thought that
there can be no intention of using force to compel
the execution of the treaty."
LONDOx, July 31.-A dispatch to the Times from
Vienna reports that the, recent disturbances at Ras-
grad were quelled by the Bulgarian militia. Forty-
two Mohammedan insurgents were killed.
LoNDoN, July 30.-The North& German Gazette ar-
gues in favor of the proposal that Germany should
purchase some islands in the Southern Pacific,
pointing out that the possessionuof a colony in that
distant and busy ocean could not fail to benefit
German commerce. The Berlin correspondent of
the Post says this may be taken as an indication
that, notwithstanding the many official disclaimers,
there is, after all, a prospect of Germany acquiring
some colonies. The North German Gazette is gene-
rally regarded as an exponent of Prince Bismarek's
views.
THE AMERICAN FORGERS IN ENGLAND.
LONDON, July 21.-A portmanteau, left at the
Euston Square Railway terminus, has been opened by
the police, and the contents conclusively prove that a
series of forgeries, extending over a long period, have
been committed both here and abroad. The portman-
teau is believed to be the property of one of the gang
of forgers of which the Americans calling themselves
Ambrose Fortescue and Wm. Baughan,. recently ar-
rested for attempting to pass an altered.cbeck on the
Bank of England, are supposed to be members.
The insect which has appeared in a potato-field
at Killavullen, in the County of Cork, Ireland, has
been identified as the Colorado beetle.
Sir Stafford Northeote, the Chancellor of the Ex-
chequer, was present in the House of Commons last
night. The injury he received from the carriage
collision at Fulham on Saturday was less serious
than at first reported.
LONDON, July 30.-A large portion of the wall ol

A SENSATIONAL CHOLERA STORY.
DUUUQUE, Iowa, July 30.-The account sent to
certain papers yesterday respecting the tled-uriread
prevalence and fatality of a disease akin to choblera,
at Centre Point and Walker, in this State, was very
greatly exaggerated. The person who sent the dis-
patch relied upon the report of a correspondent who,
doubtless, was deceived, and who probably permit-
ted too free play to his fancy. The facts are that
for a month cholera infantum has prevailed atCen.
tre Point and Walker, and although it has been of
a serious type, it has been in no sense epidemic, nor
has the community any tear that it will be.- Only
seven small children in all have died from the dis-
ease during the mouth. There are now about a
dozen cases, which are generally doing wel. There
was only one death to-day, that of a small child.
There has not been one case of death or illness from
this disease among adults. The story that 40 cof-
fins had been ordered from undertakers here was
based on the fact that 12 coffins were ordered for a
dealer.
