There is a class of people in the world who make it
the chief business of their lives to depreciate exist-
ence and its blessings; who speak of this world as
a "vale of tears," an "abode of sin and sorrow,"
a daily cross," a realm of blighted hopes," and
so on, through the entire category of such express-
ions. In nine cases out of ten our world is just
what we make it. If we resolve to see only the dark
side, we shall, of course, see no sunshine. If we
choose to live in a cellar, the sun will not be likely
to come down out of the heavens and seek us out in
our obscurity.

" Come in out of the wet" (or
rather the heat this time of the year) as the
Shark said to the Boy when he swallowed
him.

Here is a conundrum given the other evening at a
fashionable gathering:-" Why are the ladies like
churches ?-Numerous guesses were made, but
none present arrived at the correct solution. After
repeated failures, the youthful inquirer thus eluci-
dated the reply : In the first place, because there
is no 'living' without them ; secondly, we notice
many 'a-spire' to them; thirdly, that they are de-
cidedly objects of adoration ;' and lastly, but by no
means leastly, because they have a loud clapper' in
their upper story.'

I SAY.-A gentleman who had acquired a habit
of constantly interlarding his conversation with the
expression I say," having been told by a friend
that a certain individual had made some ill-natur-
ed remarks upon this peculiarity, availed himself.
of the earliest opportunity of remonstrating with
his critic, in the following amusing terms :-" I say,
sir, I hear you say 'I say' at every word 1 say
Now, sir, although I know I say I say' at every

road in the country a priest who was riding fast;
and ordering him to stop, asked hastily, "Whence
come you ? Where are you going? What do you
want ?-The other, who perfectly well knew the
king's disposition, instantly replied, "From Bruges
-to Paris-a Benefice !"-" You shall have it," re-
plied the king, and in a few days presented him

lency the Governor relating to the official duties of
the Colonial Secretary, was resumed by the House.
Mr. S. A. Masters moved to substitute the fol-
lowing for the Message he moved on the last day of
meeting:
Ordered, on motion of Mr. S. A. Masters, that
the following Message be sent to His Excellency
the Governor:-
The present Colonial Secretary having been called
upon to perform certain duties not heretofore im-
posed on his predecessors in this Colony,
The House of Assembly respectfully requests that
Your Excellency will be pleased to furnish the
House for its information with a Copy of any Dis-
patch on that subject that Your Excellency has re-
ceived from Her Majesty's Secretary of State for
the Colonies.
Mr. Dill noved that the House do go into Com-
mittee to consider the question, which was agreed to.
Mr. Fowle in the Chair.
Mr. S. A. Masters moved to substitute the fol-
lowing for the Message he proposed on the last day
of meeting, viz.:
Ordered, on motion of Mr. S. A. Masters, that the

received from Her Majesty's Secretary of State for

'*Mr. Middleton moved-Whereas it appears by
the Report of the Joint Committee of the Council
and House of Assembly dated the 28th of October,
1878, "that within the past year there had been an
increase of work in the Colonial Secretary's Office,
involving an amount of writing altogether in a
year equal to about 2,400 pages, which are also
made up in, and forwarded from that Office: and
whereas upon enquiry of the Honorable James
Tucker, the Committee was informed that during
his tenure of Office as Colonial Secretary, and for
'the period of about twenty-three years in which he
acted as Deputy, and Assistant Colonial Secretary,
such work had never been performed by the Colo-
nial Secretary; and further that he considers its
character entitled it to precedence of the ordinary
work of the Office," the House of Assembly respect-
fully begs to be informed by Your Excellency
whether or not this increased work comes within
the scope of the legitimate duties incumbent upon
the Colonial Secretary to perform, and what are the
legitimate duties of the Colonial Secretary of this
Colony.
Mr. J. W. Pearman moved that the Committee
rise-which was affirmed. Ayes 16. Nays 11.

THE LATE LIEUT. COLONEL J. W. WED-
DERBURN.
It is with much regret that we have to announce
the death of Lieut.-Col. J. W. Wedderburn, late of
the 42nd Royal Highlanders, which sad event oc-
curred on July 20th, at his residence, Marfield, near
Perth, Scotland. Colonel W. who, as Lieut. Wed-
derburn, was quartered with his regiment in these
Islands, from 1847 to 1850, was better (known to
the inhabitants as a keen sportsman and naturalist,
passing as he did, nearly the whole of his spare
time in traversing sea shore, marsh, and cedar grove
in search of our rarer feathered visitants; the result
of such labours being the publication of an extensive
list entitled "the Birds of Bermuda," which ap-
peared some twenty years ago in the Naturalist
in Bermuda'; and the acquisition of a large and
valuable ornithological collection. Colonel Wed-
derburn we are pleased to learn, retained to the last
a lively recollection of the happy days he spent
amongst us, and only recently expressed to a bro-
ther naturalist, who has had the melancholy pleasure
of penning these lines, the delight it would have
afforded him to have been permitted once more to
see dear old Bermuda," and gun in hand, wander
again o'er her coral strand.
The following additional particulars we find in
the Perthshire Journal" of July 23rd.
S" DEATH Or LIEUT.-COLONEL WEDDERBURN.-The
death of this gallant gentleman, which took place
at his residence, Marfield, on Sunday morning,
cast a gloom over the neighborhood. Although
only a little over a twelvemonth in the place, he
had made a large circle of friends, and was a gen-
eral favourite with all. Colonel Wedderburn com.
menced his career as an ensign in the 42nd Royal
Highlanders, with which regiment he saw a good
deal of foreign service. Owing to a partial loss of
hearing, Captain Wedderburn was unable to pro-
ceed with his regiment to the Crimea. He shortly
afterwards retired from the army, and in the end
of 1855 was gazetted Major in the Perthshire Mi-
litia. This post he held for nearly twenty years,
and on his retiring he received the brevet rank of
Lieut.-Colonel. Fully a year ago he bought Mar-
field, where he has since resided. Towards the end
of last week he was .complaining a little, but no-
thing serious was anticipated up to the last. The
Colonel was every inch a soldier, and on the occa-
sion of the 42nd erecting a memorial stone in Dun-
keld Cathedral some ten or twelve years ago, Col.
Wedderburn was invited by the officers to stand as
the model for the figure of a Highland officer. He
I took a lively interest in all the local clubs, but per-
: haps his greatest interest was centred in the curling
club. The decease leaves a widow, two sons, and a
daughter."

During the thunder and rain storm at about half
past three o'clock on the morning of Saturday last,
a two-story dwelling house, situated to the North
of Fort Hamilton, Smith's Hill, Pembroke Parish,
belonging to and occupied by Mr. Peter N. S. Bur-
cher, was struck by lightning. The fluid entered at
the top of the southern gable, one portion taking a
downward course on the outside of the wall, which
it cracked to the fouindation-first removing a large
portion of the slate from both sides of the roof from
the same end-and another, the same course on
the inside. In the upper room, and close to the
southern wall, was a pine door, which was split to
kindling wood, and the hinges curled up to the
wall, the glass in the windows driven out, and
many articles destroyed. In the lower room, also
close to the southern wall, stood a table, on which
were several ornaments: the table was extensively
singed, and the ornaments thrown to the floor and
broken. Both the upper and lower rooms, were
covered with broken plaster, &c., from the walls.
As may be supposed the occupants were dreadfully
frightened, indeed some of them went into fits; for
a brief period they appeared to be surrounded by
flames of fire, accompanied by a strong smell of
sulphur. They attribute their safety mainly to the
circumstance that two of the windows in the north -
ern portion of the dwelling were open.

Orders:-


t-[- General education, or education of the masses {
is a matter wv.-lhi when duly considered, can scarce-
ly fail to rouse the attention and elicit the lively in-
terest of every intelligent and thinking people. The
benefits, multifarious in kind, growing out of such
education, cannot be over-estimated, when borne
in mind that the future well-being of a country de-
pends in no inconsiderable degree, upon the men-
tal and moral training and culture of youth or the
rising generation. It therefore deeply and vitally
concerns the public, truly interested in the social,
moral, political and religious good of the country
to give due prominence to a matter of such vast
importance, and this by enlisting heartily in a cause
which has for its grand and landable object, the
education of the masses.
Now, what is the present position of our Island
in relation to the general education of the young ?
Better, infinitely better than that of former times,
all must admit; but still capable of no little im-
provement. According to the last report of the
Board of education, as well as that of the preced-
ing year, there is a marked decline in the number
of pupils and in the general attendance. We are
not advancing towards the end in view, as rapidly
or as surely as could be desired, and yet perhaps
as much so as might be warranted by existing cir-
cumstances. Wherein consists the cause or occa-
sion of this merely partial success ? And this, be
it understood, applies more particularly or chiefly
to the case of the whites. Has the Legislature then
made no provision for this class ? Yes, the public
grant has respect equally to both classes, and yet
as shown by: the reports, the whites reap very spar-
ingly the benefits of this grant. But may they not
enjoy a larger share of the public money appropri-
ated to the uses of education ? And how ? A con-
temporary suggests "how," but we are hardly pre-
pared or disposed to take a favorable view of this
suggestion, which in our opinion is both impractic-
able and undesirable. Besides, the mingling of the
two races should not be made a necessity in the matter
of public instruction. And even if the public grant
were much larger than it is, the advantages accru-
ing to the whites, would not be material, if the en-
joying them were to be conditional on such ming-
ling in the schools.
How far this existing prejudice may be justifi-
able or reasonable, is not here the question; we are
simply dealing with facts, and these facts are evi-
dent to every one. What then ? If the whites
are content to deny themselves the blessings of
education because dispensed or offered in a manner
not agreeable to their natural tastes and feelings, do
they not deserve to be left in their ignorance ? It
may be so; but at the same time the responsibili-
ty of their ignorance, with its attending evil conse-
quences, rests in a great measure upon those in
whose power it may be to extend these same bless-
ings in a manner more in harmony with natural
instincts and feelings and no less conducive to the
well-being of society. But how may this be done ?
In the first place by a more liberal grant from the
Legislature, adequate to the obvious and felt de-
mands: in the next place, by appropriating a pro-
portionate sum of this grant to the education of
the whites-separately. In fact, the colored por-
tion of the population of Bermuda appear to be in
a better position 'for educating their children than
is the case with the white-as a class. Let the
liberality of the grant be commensurate with the
great issues at stake-the ultimate welfare of the
country-and then the difficulty of securing efficient
teachers will be, to a great degree at least, obviated.
The system of taxing parents for the support of
schools would, we think tell. very hard upon a large
portion of the white community. That it should,
in a measure, be made obligatory on the part of
parents to see that their children attend school,
there is no doubt, for among many of the whites of
a certain class there is too much lukewarmness and
indifference in the matter of their children's edu.
cation.

at A pretty well-founded rumour exists that the
Hamilton Hotel will be opened for the coming
winter season under very able management.

IN MEMORIAL.
The announcement of the death of Miss Lizzie
Huntley, which took place on Monday, August 18th, at
her home in Hanover, N.H., will bring sorrow to many
hearts in Bermuda. By her bright intelligence, her
sweet, winning ways, her uncomplaining, patient, gen-
tle spirit, she won the love of all she met in Bermuda
the two winters she spent there. A great sufferer
for nearly half of her sweet life, sho bore unmur-
muringly what in His infinite wisdom her Heavenly
Father saw fit to lay upon her. Even when racked
by pain her lovely smile would illumine her whole
face. Refined by suffering, she gave up her own will to
that of her Divine Saviour, and calmly awaited her
summons to cross the dark river and enter the portals
of life and joy eternal. Gone now are her weary hours
of intense suffering; gone the sin and sorrow of earth.
Not for her, asleep in Jesus, do our tears fall, but for
those loving ones who have watched over her for years,
ministering to her every want with undying affection.
What a void now in their hearts, in their home! None
can fill it but the Holy Ghost. the Comforter, whose
mission, like the dove of peace, is to hover over anxious
sorrowing souls, drawing them from the troubles of
earth to the serene joys of the Divine life.

YELLOW FEVER'S PROGRESS.
MEMPHis, Tenn., Aug. 27.-During several days
past the number of new cases has been alarming,
but to-day's reports are more favorable, and cer.
tainly comforting to those here who, besides
being work-worn from caring for the sick and pro-
viding for the needy, are becoming weary of the
monotonous prospect of having to devote their time
for two: months longer in the same dreary drudg-
ery. New cases reported officially to the Board of
Health number 22, including 10 whites; while the
death-roll from the same source numbers seven, of
which four are whites. Three new cases and three
deaths are also reported from beyond the corporate
limits.

BALTIMORE, Md., Aug. 27.-Capt. Wallace, of
the British steamship American, which arrived at
this port to-day, reports that on August 22, off
Walling's Island, one of the West India group, he
sighted a bark in distress, and ran down to her.
She proved to be the British bark Blaney Brothers,
of London, from Miragoane, Hayti, for London,
laden with coffee and logwood. There were only
three men on board able to do duty, and they were
nearly exhausted. The captain had died of yellow
fever, and the members of the crew were sick with
the same disease. Capt. Wallace put his 1st officer
and two men on board, and directed the bark to
Kingston, Jamaica,

An address to Lieut. Carey to the effect that he

LONDON, Aug. 23.-The Times announces that
Lieut. Carey, in addition to the official notification
of the reversal of the sentence of the court-martial
in his case, has received a letter from the Duke of
Cambridge, Commander-in-Chief of the British
army, reviewing the circumstances of the death of
the Prince Imperial and concluding with the opin-
ion that after the surprise of the reconnoitering
party by the Zulus resistance was impossible and
retreat imperative.
Reports from South Africa indicate that arduous
work still remains to be done before the Zulus are
subdued. It is also said that the Boers have deter-
mined to fight unless their independence is restored.
A large amount of United States Bonds continued

SUGAR BOUNTIES IN ENGLAND.-The London News
of August 14 says:
At the adjourned conference on the sugar boun-

read by the chairman:
AUGUST 7.-SIR: I have laid before Lord Bea-
consfield your letters of the 25th ult., and the 6th
inst., representing the wishes of the Workmen's
National Executive Committee for the abolition of
the Foreign Sugar Bounties, to present to his lord-
ship a memorial upon the subject of these bounties.
The Prime Minister desires me to say that Her Ma-
jesty's Government has recognized the importance
of this subject by recommending the appointment of
a select committee of the House of Commons to in-
vestigate it. The committee has collected a great
mass of evidence, and intends to pursue still fur-
ther injuries. When its labors are closed it will
be the duty of her Majesty's Government to consid.
er very carefully the report, and therefore, under
these circumstances, Lord Beaconsfield thinks no
practical advantage would arise from his receiving
a deputation at the present moment. If, however,
you will forward to him a memorial, be will be glad
to refer it to the proper quarter for examination.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,

conspiracy, has commenced. Counsel for the Crown,
in opening their case, alleged that after the directors
had sunk two-thirds of the capital of the bank in loans
to the insolvent ironmaking firm of Booker & Com-
pany, they endeavored to shift their responsibility
upon the public by taking over the business of Booker
& Co., transforming it into a limited company and
endeavoring to sell the shares thereof by promising
good dividends.

the morning of the 23rd August. De Young had
1 charged Kallock injhis paper the Chronicle, with im-

audience, it seems that Kallock applied the most
obscene epiphet to De Young. Young drove to the
Metropolitan Temple, where Kallock has his study,
and sending a messenger to say that a gentleman
I wished to see him, as Kallock approached-not
, knowing who he was going, to see-Young' fired
i two shots at him from his coupe; one struck him
in the breast, and the other in his hip. A mob soon
collected but the police force by great exertion
saved De Young from falling into their hands,
otherwise he would have been killed.

THE PARK FLAG-STAFF.
Mn. EDITon,-It seems a pity that this handsome
present from abroad should not have been placed
in some elevated and conspicuous part of the Park
where it might be seen, and appreciated as an or-
nament, instead of down in the lowest corner,
contiguous to tall, thickly wooded cedars and shrub-
bery, detracting from its altitude; and from some
points of view producing doubts as to whether it
belongs in or out of the Park. It is manifest to all
of good taste and judgment that the Southwestern
quarter is the proper place for it, being the highest
portion of the Park, free from surroundings to in-
terfere with its view, and where it would be open
to admiration from all sides. It is to be hoped
that the Corporation will act in this case as they
did with the first Lamp Posts that were placed in
wrong positions, reconsider, and put this handsome
Staff where Nature and Art had already prepared
a home for it. As the object of the Donors was to
please and gratify the Citizens, it is to be regretted
it should not be carried out, instead of having
passers by shrug their shoulders and exclaim
wrong place! OBSERVER.

CIRCULAR FROM THIE NATIONAL BOARD
OF HEALTH ON DISINFECTION AND
PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES.
WASHINGTON, July 29, 1879.
The Executive Committee of the National Board
of Health has issued the following circular on dis-
infection :
NATIONAL BOARD OF HEALTH, ?
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 29, 1879.
The following memoranda on disinfection for
limiting the spread of yellow fever are published as
a summary of existing knowledge on this subject.
This knowledge is far from being precise, and the
Board has taken measures to have the effects of dis-
infectants, and more particularly of gaseous or vola-
tile disinfectants, upon the lower organisms, both
moist and dry, carefully investigated. This inves-
tigation will require much time, but the results will,
it is hoped, repay the ccst.
First -It is prudent to assume that the essential
cause of yellow fever is what may for conciseness
be called a "germ;" that is, something which is
capable of growth and propogation outside the
living human body; that this germ flourishes espe-
cially in decaying organic matter or filth, and that
disinfection must have reference both to the germs
and to that in or on which it flourishes.
Second- Disinfection when used in a place not in-
fected for the purpose of rendering the filth of foul
soils, water, &c., incapable of propagating disease
germs, is a poor substitute for cleanliness, and is
mainly useful to make the process of cleaning odor-
less and harmless. The best infectants for this
purpose are sulphate of iron, carbolic acid, fresh
quicklime, fresh charcoal powder, chloride of zinc,
chloride of aluminum and hermanganate of potash.
Third-The two great difficulties in destroying the
vitality of the germ of yellow fever are-first, to
bring 'the disinfecting agent into actual contact
with the germ, and, second, to avoid injuring or
destroying other things which should be preserved.
THE GERM OF YELLOW FEVER.
Fourth-When the germ of yellow fever is dry or
partially dried, no gaseous disinfectant can be re-
lied on to destroy it. It must cither be moistened
or subjected to a dry heat of not less than 250-de-
grees to obtain security.
Filth-In disinfecting or destroying infected
clothing, bedding or movable articles, move them
as little as possible while dry. Before distributing
them, have them thoroughly moistened, either with
a chemical disinfecting solution or with boiling
water, in order to prevent the diffusion of direct
germs in the air in the form of dust.
DISINFECTING PROCESS.
Si.th--Tie best method of disinfecting rooms,
buildings, ships, &c., is still doubtful, owing to the
difficulty of destroying the vitality of dried germs.
The Board proposes to have this subject carefully
investigated, and in the meantime advises thorough
scrubbing and moist cleansing, to be followed by
the fumes of burning sulphur at the rate of eigh-
teen ounces per 1,000 cubic feet of space to be disin-
fected. The sulphur should be broken in small
pieces, burned over vessels containing water or sand,
which vessels should be distributed over the space
to be disinfected at the rate of at least one to each
100 square feet.
No patented compound known to the Board is
superior as a disinfectant to the agents above men-
tioned and none is so cheap. Some of these patent
disinfectants are good deodorants, but the removal
of an unpleasant odor is no proof that true disin-
fection has been accomplished.
PRECAUTIONARY MEASTRES.
In districts where yellow fevce prevailed last year
the following precautionary measures should be
taken :-
1. Textile fabrics of every description which were
exposed to yellow fever infection during the year
1878, and which have remained packed or boxed in
a closed place since, such exposure should not be
opened or unrolled, but should either be burned or
placed in boiling water for half an hour or more or
In suitable heated Ovens, or disinfected according to
the nature and value of the individual article or
articles.
2. Every house or room in which cases of yellow
fever occurred in the year 1878, and since that time
have remained unoccupied, should not be opened for
occupation until they have been thoroughly cleansed
and disinfected by persons acclimated to yellow
fever.
3. Every privy vault, underground water cis-
tern, dry well or closed cellar connected with a
house in which yellow fever existed last year, and
which may not have been opened since that date,
should not be reopened, but if possible should be
'covered with several feet of earth.
4. Every suspicious case should be at once
isolated and every possible precaution taken to
prevent infection by providing attendants who have
had the disease and thorough disinfection of all dis-
charges from the sick. If the disease proves to be
yellow fever, all articles of clothing and bedding
used about the sick should be burned, the house
should be vacated and every room tightly closed
and fumigated with burning sulphur.

Swimming, like pedestrianism, would seem to be
one of the progressive sciences, the feats of Capt.
Webb and Capt Boyton, exceeding those of Byron
and Lieut. Ekenhead as far as the "long distance
record" of Weston and O'Leary surpasses that of
Christopher North, Byron's famous passage of the


Hellespont, despite the slanting course into which
he was driven by the current, fell somewhat short
of four miles, although the struggle with the tre-
mendous rush of the water must necessarily have
been a very exhausting one. A more respectable,
though less known,-feat was his seven-mile swim'
against the tide from Lisbon to Belem Castle, an
exploit equaled by one of Edgar Poe's youthful
achievements. Capt. Marryat's swim ashore"
from his ship, at Portsmouth, in his midshipman
days, was made memorable rather by the roughness
ot the sea and the fact of its being done in his
clothes than by the actual distance, which was but
little over two miles. A Shetland fisherman,
wrecked with his family upon a bare rock 10 miles
from the nearest of the Faroe Islands, swam the
distance in quest of help, which he fortunately ob-
tained in time. A Spanish deserter is said to have
crossed the Straits ot Gibraltar, 18 miles wide, but
the story rests upon doubtful authority. Mr. J.
B. Wilson, who attempted the Channel previous to
Capt. Webb's success, accomplished between seven
and eight miles, or about one-third of the entire
distance. The astounding feats ascribed by tradi-
tion to the Greek Islanders and the natives of the
Polynesian Archbipel go are probably to be accept-
ed with considerable reserve. N. Y. iHerald.

Thb British Board of Trade statistics make more
and more apparent, year by year, the fact that steam-
ships are rapidly superseding sailing vessels both for
home and foreign trade. In the foreign trade alone
steam tonnage shows an increase of 10 per cent in the
last returns as compared with those of the preceding
year, while a corresponding decrease is noticeable in
sailing ships employed in the same trade.
Chinese diamonds are found chiefly in the Province
of Shantung, where they are collected in a rather pe-
culiar fashion. The Diamond hunters put on thick
shoes of straw, and then simply roam about the valleys
and the rivers. The rough and pointed gems pene-
trate the straw and stick fast. Finally, the shoes are
heaped together and burned, and the diamonds are
6i1tnd in the ashes.


There is iio end of tle romantic episodes connect-
ed with the Nihilist conspiracy in Russia. Here
is a scene, as described by a correspondent :-" It
is not only for being concerned in the attempted as-
sassination of the Emperor that Dr. Weimar is ac-
cused : he is also blamed for having been instru-
mental in arranging the escape of Prince Krapot-
kine, the Socialist, from prison, and in having been
directly concerned in the murder of General Mez-
entseff. The escape of Prince Krapotkine was one
of the most daring exploits ot the party of action,
and, like most of their recent ventures, was crown-
ed with perfect success. Prince Krapotkine was
arrested as a dangerous Socialist, and kept in pri-
son in the fortress of St. Petersburg. He was taken
ill there, and was removed to the military hospital
to the division set aside for criminals, and strongly
guarded. While recovering from his illness he re-
quested to be allowed an hour's exercise in the
courtyard every day. As the Physician also con-
sidered fresh air indispensable to his recovery, the
authorities granted his petition. In his strolls he
was always accompanied by a couple of soldiers
with loaded muskets. One morning, as the pris-
oner was taking his accustomed walk, the gates of
the courtyard were thrown open to let in a cartload
of hay. Prince Krapotkine suddenly gave his
guards the slip, glided past the load of hay, and
ran out in the street, where a friend seated in a
drosky, to which a splendid trotter was harnessed,
was ready waiting for, him. To jump into the ve-
hicle, throw away his prison cap, and put on an
officer's cloak and helmet, which his friend had
kindly provided for the occasion, was an affair of
a few seconds. The astonished soldiers rushed in-
to the street after their charge, whom they found a
good way off. A couple of shots fired in the direc-
tion of the rapidly receding equipage, reminded the
Prince that he had left his simple custodians with-
out wishing them good-bye. He therefore politely
raised his helmet, and was soon lost to view. He
is now living safely abroad. The friend who acted
as deliverer is said to have been Dr. Weimar.

The following from an eye-witness places beyond
dispute the "new" horrors of the middle passage
between Russia and Sagbalien, as inflicted on po-.
litical prisoners:-" S.S. Australia, Suez, June 26,
1879. The only thing worth recording,
and the general public ought, I think, to know
something about what I relate, is of a screw steamer,
a Russian man-of-war, or rather transport, of about
1,500 tons gross measurement, at Port Said. This
vessel had on board upwards of 600 prisoners-
Nihilists; they were going to Siberia, to some port
north of China. They were in cages, each cage con-
taining about fifty. The Custom-house officer who
came on board us said he had seen them, and that
' they looked like wild beasts,' and no wonder-poor
wretches! This sight made all hearts sad. .
The figure-head of the ship was beautifully carved.
It was an angel with a golden crown, and holding
forth a crucifix.

Here is an experience of the internal condition of
Burmab, as sketched during a voyage up the Irra-
wadi: Bam6 is now within an easy run. That
village to your right is Sawadi; it was plundered
last year by the Kachyens, and now all the people
at night (for that is the general time of attack) re-
move all their belongings, and sleep on bamboo
rafts alongside the bank, the moorings of which can
be slipped at a moment's notice. This custom is
common all the way up the stream, and gives a
good idea of the prevalent alarm. Some few months
ago, scared by a sudden and sanguinary raid which
their fierce neighbours had made on an offending
hamlet, all the villagers on the right bank of the
defile abandoned their homesteads, leaving their
crops unreaped and gardens untended, and crowded
down on bamboo rafts to a large village on the fur-
ther side, which was under the protection of a
powerful Kacbyen chieftain. Hitherto they have
not ventured to return, and the jungle is fast swal-
lowing up their little farms.
In the French Chamber on Tuesday last a bill was
brought forward for the demolition of the ruins of
the Tuileries. Baron Haussmann spoke against
the measure as being too hastily proposed, and said
that if there were a well-considered plan he should
be prepared to decide upon it, but as things stood
he moved an adjournment. M. Clemenceau main-
tained that the Parisians could not wait longer for
the demolition of the Tuileries, and the bill was
carried by a large majority. The site of the palace
is to be laid out as a garden.
A story is told of a crafty American skipper who
escaped the clutches of a hostile cruiser by hoisting
the yellow flag, and exhibiting one of his crew over
the bulwarks stitched up in a hammock, as if about
to be flung into the sea. As his vessel was lying
off a port where the yellow fever was then raging
the privateer took the alarm and sheered off. Even
this, however, was exceeded by an episode of the
Egyptian war of 1889-40, when Admiral Napiei's
squadron was cruising in the Levant. The look-
out man of an English frigate one morning saw an
Arab in the water, seemingly in danger of drown-
ing. A boat was lowered, and the swimmer picked
up; but he died shortly after being brought on
board, with all the symptoms of the plague, and was
quickly followed by the Captain and a fourth of
the crew. It was afterwards found that this des-
perate fanatic, finding himself death-stricken, had
deliberately swam off to the ship, with the inten-
tion of carrying the infection among his enemies!


From a comparison of the effects of inhalations o
chloroform and ether, in anesthetic and toxical doses,
on the heart and the respiration, Arloing deduces the
following practical directions : In the first phase at-
tention should be given both to the heart and the res-
piration, whether ether or chloroform be used ; in the
second, the heart must be watched, especially in the
case of chloroform, and in the third respiration.
Chloroform should be preferred to ether when the
operation may be long, as the development of intox-
ication by ether is more sudden.
After speaking of the success of the jetty system in
improving the navigation of the Mississippi, the
Scientific American says that "however perfect the
channel, commerce will not adopt a route liable to
annual interruption by pestilence. Trade cannot
brook diversion or delay. No more will it subject it
self to liability to interruption. Ofgreater importance
even than 30 feet of water is freedom from sanitary
risks. The Mississippi must be made as healthy as
the Hudson before its commercial possibilities will
begin to be developed. Sanitary science must com-
plete the work which engineering has begun."
The new cure for hydrophobia is a dose of 20 cen-
tigrammes of curaree" injected under the skin.

11 EAT progress has been made within a few
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
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 of
time in city markets. All goods bearing our
name are guaranteed to be 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
TIURBER's BRANDS.
