A story is told of a Kentucky girl who had agreed
to elope with a lover whom- her parents refused to
admit to the house. She descended the ladder in
the night and started with him on horseback.
"Now, you see how much I love you," she said;
"you will be always a true and kind husband,
won't you?"-He answered gruffly, Perhaps I
may, and perhaps not."-She rode in silence a few
minutes, when she suddenly exclaimed: Oh! what
shall we do! I have left my money behind me in
my room?"-"Then," said he "we must go back
and fetch it." They were soon again at the house,
the ladder was again placed, the lady remounted,
while the ill-natured lover remained below. But
she delayed to come, and so he gently called, Are
you coming ?" when she looked out of the window
and said, Perhaps I may and perhaps not;" and
then shut down the window.

Demierara and Barbados.
We are indebted to Captain Young, of the Brig-
antine T. IT A. Pitt, which arrived on Saturday]
last, and another friend for files of Demerara and
Berbados papers, the former to the 16th ult. and
the latter to the 25th. These papers are filled with
matter almost entirely of a local nature.
DEMERARA.-The July session of the Supreme
Court of Criminal Justice for the county of Demnera-
ra was opened this morning (July 15th,) with the
usual formalities. Chief Justice Sir David Chalmers
presides in the First Court, in which the Attorney
General prosecutes, and Mr. Justice Htampden King
in the Second, in which the prosecution of the cases
for the Crown is being conducted by the Folicitor-
General. There were five cases heard in each Court,
all of which were on indictment for burglary. There
was a conviction in each case (in both Courts) but
their honors reserved passing of sentence.
There had been 794 witnesses summoned on the
part of the Government.
The return of the import duties at Demerara for
the half year ending 80th June last compared with
the equivalent period in the previous year, shews a
falling off of close upon seventy thousand dollars.
The rum duties for same period show a comparative
advance of about $6,400.

For the Royal Gazette.
The village of the Flatts being the owner of a
Fruit Store, employed an agent to manage the
business at a salary of 5 4/2 per month. At the
time of taking charge of the business the village
turned over to the agent the stock in hand, in value
11 19/9, and in cash in the drawer 6 14/A. At the
end of the month the business was discontinued
and the town authorities called upon the agent for
a settlement. During the month the agent paid
out for new stock the sum of 12 9/71. and received
from sales 21 9/1, and had on hand in stock
6 10/8. in settlement the village received from
the agent the stock at par value, and the agent is
ready to settle the remainder but for a disagree--
ment as to the amount of his indebtedness. A fine
water-melon, weighing not less than 20 lbs., of the
variety known as the Black Spanish, with Ice Cream
meat (or some other fine variety), will be given to
any person furnishing the correct amount of the
agent's indebtedness to the village. The Editor of
the "Royal Gazette" will give an order on the
Postmaster of "Flatts Village" for this premium
melon to the person first furnishing to his paper
for publication, the answer as above required.

MI':-IONS TO THE HEATHEN.
On the fourth Sunday after Trinity, July 6tb,
the Parochial Clergy invited their congregations
to join in a service of Thanksgiving to Almighty
GoD for the return of the fruits of the earth. Col-
lections were also made on that day in the several
Churches and Garrison Chapels in behalf of Mis-
sions to the Heathen, The weather was very un-
favorable for the gathering of large congregations
and in three instances the Clergy supplemented the
amount obtained on that day by a subsequent col-
lection for the same object.
The following is a List of the contributions from
the several Churches :-

THE LATE MRS. TELFOR.
Our obituary column of this day's issue contains
the simple announcement of the death of Mrs. F.
Telfor, but we are sure we shall only be expressing
the feeling of the inhabitants of Bermuda generally,
if we consider that a somewhat more extended
notice is due to one,, who for many years past, has
been so well known throughout the Islands;
whose life has been one of so much usefulness, and
marked by the continual performance of deeds of
kindness and charity.
Her kindly face and cheery greeting will long be
sadly missed by those who pass along the Front
Street of Hamilton, and who were so accustomed to
the sight of Mrs. Telfor presiding over her busi-
ness affairs that for many a day it will scarcely
seem natural that any but the long familiar figure
should be seen occupying her place.
Her kindness and goodness of heart was known
from one end of the Island to the other, of that
which had been entrusted to her she freely and
cheerfully gave, and there are many now in our
midst who have had good cause to bless her boun-
ty ; she was ever ready to assist those who were in
b want and distress, by her means orphans have been
brought up, educated and set forward in life; and
she was, we believe the President, and an active
member, of a most useful Society which has for its
object the care and support of the sick and infirm.
She was an earnest member of the Church of
England and most regular in her attendance at the
Services of the Church; some few weeks ago her
health began to fail, but it was not until within a
day or two of her death that any serious apprehen-
sions were felt with regard to her; during the last
few hours of her life she sank rapidly and soon after
mid-day on Tuesday peacefully breathed her last.
On the following day her remains were interred
j in Pembroke Churchyard, the very numerous at-
I tendance of persons of all classes at her funeral
testifying to the general esteem in which she was
held.
We are sure that the name of Frances Telfor will
long be gratefully remembered in Bermuda, as that
of one whose influence was widely exerted for good;
and we use no words of flattery when we say that
her death will be felt as a loss, not simply by her
relations and friends, but by the whole community.

A FLAG STAFF FOR T'iE PAnK.-The Corporation
of Hamilton received by the Steamer "Bermuda"
on her last trip from New York, a splendid Flag
Staff, of about 60 feet in length, with halyards,
truck, church vein and cardinal points, and a very
large British Ensign, contributed by Bermudians
resident in New York, as an adornment for the
Park. The staff, &c., is the gift of H. P. Kirkham,
Esqr., the Ensign that of Robert A. Tucker, Esqr.,
and the freight to Bermuda has been met by Alex-
ander E. Outerbridge, Esqr.
It has been decided that the Staff be erected in
the North West portion of the Park in the Band
Stand.

We learn by the Halifax Mail that the Troop-
ship Tamar, has been detailed to bring the 97th
Regiment to Bermuda from Halifax some time in
October.


St. John New Brunswick papers says, that Mr.
H. Jones, a commercial traveller" has been fined
420 for doing business in that Province without a
License-why should "commercial travellers," or
other such persons be allowed to do business in
Bermuda to the injury of the resident business men,
without paying for the privilege.

LABORERS WANTED AT THE ROYAL NAVAL YARD.
-Captain Moresby, R.N., the Captain Superinten-
dent of the Royal Naval Establishments at Ireland
Island, has received authority from home to large-
ly increase the Labour Staff on the Floating
Dbck. He has consequently caused printed bills
to be posted throughout the Islands and notices in
the public journals, offering liberal wages and
comfortable lodgings to such persons as may be dis-
posed to engage themselves for such employment.
We should suppose that at this dull season of the
year, there will be quite a number who will be
ready to avail themselves of the terms offered.

THE RICHMOND (ENGLAND) MTRDER.-The trial
of:Katherine Webster for the murder of Julia Mar-
tha Thomas, at Richmond, Surrey, England, con-
cluded on 8th July, lasted six days and resulted in
a verdict of Guilty. The prisoner was sentenced to
death. Fifty-three witnesses were called, the evi-
dence being entirely circumstantial.
Mr. Keith Frith was one of the counsel for the
prisoner.

THINGS THAT ARE TOLD.-An interesting vale-
dictory service was held two weeks in Henry VII's
Chapel, Westminister Abbey, in connection with the
departure of Sir Arthur Gordon to resume his duties
as Governor of Feejee. Upwards of a hundred per-
sonal friends were present and the holy communion
was administered by Dean Stanley, who delivered a
touching and eloquent address. In the course of it
he alluded to the reclamation of the colony from
heathenism to Christianity, and with his accustomed
catholicity mentioned the Wesleyan Church as the
instrument of this great change. Lord Cardwell,
Mr, Gladstone and Mr. Beresford Hope were among
the communicants- The Revs. Dr. Arthur, M. A.,
Dr. Moreley Punshon, Dr. Marmaduke C. Osborn
and the Rev. J. S. Moulton were present as repre.
senting the Wesleyan Missionary Society.-Halifax

A LETTER FROM THE PRINCE IN AFRICA.

(Paris Figaro, July 10.)
Mr DEAR (name not given) : Since my departure I
have not yet written to you, but you must not think
that I have forgotten you, as God, who reads in my
soul, knows the place which the memory of my friends
and my country holds in it. Although the second
part of the campaign has not yet begun, I have al-
ready donned my war harness since I was appointed
three weeks ago. I am fulfilling at present the duties of
an officer on the staff ot the General Commanding-in
Chief, and this is for me the best way of seeing and
learning and of making war. I have had the courage
to refuse the command of a squadron of men on out.
post duty. However tempting the offer, I have
thought that the position that I now occupy would
enable me to gain more experience and render more
service. *
As you are my friend, it is for you to explain and
defend my conduct; and although my departure is
already an old affair, I would return with you to the
reasons that have prompted it. I took nobody's ad-
vice, and made up my mind in forty-eight hours. If
my resolution had been a speedy one it is because I
had long considered such a contingency, and arranged
my plan. Nothing has made me hesitate a minute, and
this is natural for those who know me. But how many
are they? Sometimes it seems to me that there are none
when I remember that I have been very unjustly
judged by those who ought to know me best. *
I am really ashamed to have to speak thus of myself,
but I wish to dissipate the doubts which have some-
times been expressed respecting the energy of my
will, which believe me, is and will remain innocent of
all concession or cowardice. When one be-
longs to a race of soldiers, it is only sword in hand
that one achieves a name; and when one would
learn by travel, one must go far away. Therefore,
long ago, I resolved, first to make a long journey;
secondly, to loose no opportunity of seeing a cam-
pain. The disaster of Isandula gives me the oppor-
tunity which I have sought. The war in Africa isde-
veloping itself on a large scale without bringing with
it European complications. Everything.


therefore, led me to go, and I have gone. In another
letter either to or to you, I will give you
details of the military operations. Remember me to
them, and believe in my constant friendship.
NAPOLEON."
OTTAWA, July 31.-It is said that a writ of quo-
warranto against Hon. Theodore Robitaille, to show
cause why be assumes to be Lieutenant Governor
of Quebec, is supported by the highest legal au-
thority, and will be contested in the courts of the
Province. Eminent jurists hold that he cannot
act, and that no power exists for the removal of
Letellier in the manner which has been pursued.
DUBUQUE, IA., July 31.--At Centre Point a cho.
lera epidemic, as local physicians call it, is on the
increase. 100 cases are now reported in rural towns
with fatalities occurring every hour. Six deaths
are reported at the town of Walker, only a few miles
from here, which is an indication of its contagious
character.

ROYAL CADETS TO VISIT HALIFAX.--Captain
Lord Charles Scott, son of the Duke of Buocleuch,
has put into commission the Bacchante corvette, at
Portsmouth, and the vessel will shortly proceed on
a long voyage, for the purpose of affording the
Royal Navy cadets an opportunity to become ac.
quainted with practical seamanship. It has been
decided that the Bacchante shall carry two captains,
the duties of one of whom will be to act as the
cadets' instructor. After leaving the Britannia, the
Royal youths will be allowed a holiday, and will
not probably go on board the Bacchante before the
beginning of September. They will almost circum.
navigate the globe, and although the precise
route has not yet been determined, it is understood
the vessel will call at the West Indies and Halifax.
The ship's compliment will consist of 385 men.

The captain of the Calias mail boat says he could
understand the weather when Providence had it in
hand, but since the Yankees have taken it up, he
cannot make out anything.







BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


A CITY OF DESOLATION.
Day by day the news from Memphis grows worse.
The fever is slowly spreading through the city;
thirteen new cases were reported yesterday, some of
them in quarters of the city that have hitherto been
free from it.
The flight of the citizens continues, but one by
one the doors of refuge are being shut and barred
in their faces. Six more Southern towns have de-
clared a strict quarantine against them ; and the
news that two refugees from Memphis have been
prostrated by the fever in Louisville will probably
precipitate the same action in other towns. Mean-
while the Memphis authorities are pushing the pre-
parations for the camp to which it is proposed to
remove the poor.
What a calamity The stoppage for months to-
gether of the machinery of trade in such a place,
and the transfer, which is now going on, of the
stocks of goods of merchants to other cities, can
hardly fail to do permanent damage to the business
interests of Memphis ; to give that enterprising
town a blow from which it will be slow to recover,
if it does ever rebound. But the abandonment of
the place by everybody who keeps the wheels of its
prosperous activities in motion means something
worse. It means great suffering among those who
are compelled to remain within its limits, to say
nothing of the hardships which many of the refugees
must undergo.
Can we expect that the epidemic, which until the
coming of black frost has time within which to do
its ravages, will be confined to this one city, even
if it is shut off from the rest of the country and
turned into a vast plague hospital? It is an ap-
palling spectre which the imaginations of the
people of the Mississippi Valley are creating, one
that walks over thousands of fresh graves to lay
its hands on the survivors of the pestilence of last
summer.
From the time of the subsidence of the pestilence
last autumn until the warm weather was again
upon us in its full force, in Congress, and in health
associations and doctors' societies, yellow fever and
its prevention were the themes of ceaseless discus-
sion. Travelling commissions studied it in the
cities it ravaged, and a National Health Board was
organized at great cost. The doctors disagreed as
to its origin; whether it is of foreign importation
necessarily, or of indigenous growth, and volumes
of words were written about the disease. Yet
here we stand trembling lest it may again ravage
the South, well knowing that if it once gets a
foothold there it is just as likely to pursue its de-
vastating course unchecked, as if Congress and the
doctors had not legislated and debated.-New York
Paper, July 31.
MEMPHIS, TENN., Aug. 1. -Four more new

| CANNED GOODS.
G R ERAT progress has been made within a few
Years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-
Sa S getables, Fish and Meats in tins, and in conse-
P quence the consumption has largely increased.
j S m As yet, however, canned goods are not generally
t- thought to be freshsh" and some brands are not,
0 perhaps, entitled to lbe so considered. Those
packed by us, however, are Hermetically Sealed
oH at the sources of supply, when they are in the
Best possible condition, by a process which pre-
Sserves 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-
S posed for sale during considerable periods o
> s time in city markets. All goods bearing ourt
|S name are guaranteed to he of superior quality,
and dealers are authorised to refund the purchase i
Price in any case where consumers have cause
0 Z for dissatisfaction. It is, therefore, to the in-
I 1terest of both dealers and consumers to use
TII UBRa's BRANDS.
