SELF CONCEIT.-One night, many years ago., at a
party, the late Sir Robert Peel, the great Duke of
Wellington, and some others, were p!ayin.- whist.
John Wilson Croker was learning ecarte at another
table. Go," said Peel, to one of his friends, and
ask if he ever learned the game before."-" Never,"
said Croker, union my word."-" Well," said Peel
to his friend, when he had returned, I'll bet that
in twenty minutes, by my watch, Croker will tell
his teacher that he does not know how to play,"
In five minutes, Croker was heard saying, Well,
do you know, I should not have. thought that th'e
best way of playing." This remark was naturally
followed by a roar of laughter.

Dr. Johnson once silenced a notorious female
back-biter, who was condemning some of her friends
for painting their cheeks, by the remark that "It is
a far less harmful thing for a lady to redden her own
complexion than to blacken her neighbour's."

NoTuING TO Do.--How o any people there are who
are continually wishing they had nothing to do!
This seems to be the extent of their ambition. How
often you will hear peopi,c exclaim--referring to
someone who by hard wol.k and untiring energy
has acquired a fortune-" you wouldn't catch me
working and making a slave of in.v..-lfas he does.
1 would retire to some quiet spot, where I should
be free from care and have nothing to do but live
in peace and enjoy the fruits of my labour."
Thousands of men have tried this plan, and ,ene-
rally with the same result-a more or less decline
of the vital powers, and in a fe., years i..-.. A
well-known author says, When my time has come
to die, I desire not to retire from active employ-
ment, for I can conceive o! no more wretched con-
dition than one in which a person has nothing to do."

SINGLE WOMEN.-Why are single women called
spinsters? Formerly women could not legally
marry until they had spun a complete set of bed
furniture, hence the term spinster, which is still in
legal use.

QUICK AND APT REPLY.-The late Charles F.
Briggs was well known both in the profession and
out of it, says a contemporary, for his habit of dis-
puting the.- most commonplace statement. This
propensity often gave to his oral intercourse with
friends, the character of controversy rather than
that of conversation. Upon one occasion two of
his intimate acquaintances, who were seated in tbhe
cabin of a ferry boat, saw Mr. Briggs tp;I'r.,ac1-1,i.
and immediately :-el .u. Lt themselves of some pro-
position, the truth of which he could not dispute.
Accordingly, when he had taken a seat at their
side, one of them, after exchanging a few remarks
with him, abruptly said, "Charley, I want to bet
you that two and two make four."-" Nothing of
the sort," promptly rejoined Mr. Briggs ; 2 and 2
make 22."

Abstract of


the Proceedings of the Hlonorable
House of Assembly.


Friday, 5th September.-Mr. Cooper presented a
Petition from certain Trustees and Members of the
Wesleyan Chnrch in Southampton Parish-pray-
ing for pecuniary assistance in enclosing with a
Wall the adjoining ground for the purposes of a
Cemetery-for certain reasons set forth in the Pe-
tition.
The Bill entitled An Act to regulate the sale of
Intoxicating Liquors"-was read a third time.
Mr. Fraser moved to strike out that part of the
2nd Clause which provides that a License should be
required for the sale of Wine, Malt Liquor, Cider
and Perry-which was affirmed.
Ayes 12-Messrs. S C Bell, F M Cooper, R J P
IJD:' .e:. N J Darrell, R D Fraser, W S Masters, T
D Middleton, T A Outerbridge, W R Peniston, J
W Pearman, J N Smith, W H Wilkinson.
Nays 10-Messrs. T N Dill, W J Frith, J Fowle,
S B C,'ay, S A Harvey, J Harnett, S A Masters, S
C Outerbridge, R Tynes, T J Wadson.
Mr. J..W. Pearman moved to strike out all after
the word Parish" in the second paragraph of the
7th Clause, and add the following and each ap-
plicant shall pay unto the Overseers of the Poor
(one pound) as their fee for reviving the License
money and certifying to the same-which was ne-
gatived.
Ayes.8-Mesers. R D Fraser, J W Pearman, J N
Smith.
Nays 17-Messrs. S C Bell, F M Cooper, R J P
Darrell, N J Darrell, T N Dill, W J Frith, S B
Gray, S A Harvey, J Harnett, W S Masters, S A
Masters, T D Middleton, S C Outerbridge, W R
Peniston, R Tynes, W H Wilkinson, T J Wadson.
Mr. Wilkinson moved to strike out all after the
word "annexed" in the 9th Clause-which was af-
firmed, the Attorney General objecting.
A Message from His Excellency the Governor:-
(No. 28.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor, in compliance with the request
of the Honorable House of Assembly, conveyed in
a Message dated 25th July, 1879, has the honor to
forward to the Honorable House a Plan prepared
by the Colonial Surveyor showing how a Reception
Room may be added to the present Government
House at Mount Langton. The cost of this build.
ing is estimated at 2,200.
The Governor fully appreciates the feeling which
has led the Honorable House of Assembly to pro-
pose to add a Reception Room to the existing
buildings at Government House-but he thinks it
right to point out to the Honorable House that there
are wants more pressing than that of a Reception
Room for which it would be desirable to provide
before undertaking to.erect the latter building.
The drainage of the old buildings is at present so
badly arranged and disposed of that had not the
present summer season been a peculiarly temperate
one, the Governor fears there might have been an
outbreak of Typhoid Fever in his family.
An estimate amounting to 60 was submitted by
the Board of Works to the Honorable House of
Assembly as the cost of providing a remedy for this
very grave evil-but the Honorable House reduced
the sum allotted to that purpose to 30, with which
amount no effectual remedy can be provided and
the consequence has been that nothing has been
done.
This is an evil which the Governor thinks should
be remedied before any addition is made to the
present Establishment.
Public Buildings, Hamilton,)
6th September, 1879. f
The Bill for providing better Gaol accommoda-
tion in the Town of Hamilton-was read a 2nd
time and committed.
Mr. Cooper in the Chair.
The 1st and 2nd Clauses agrel d to.
The Attorney General moved the 3rd Clauso.
Mr. Wilkinson moved an amendment thereto-
whibch was agreed to.
The 3rd Clause as amended, 4th, 5tb, 6th Clau-
ses agreed to.
The House resumed.
The Chairman reported the Bill as amended, and
it %as idopteq and ordered to be engrossed.
Mr. S. A. #atsters presented a Petition from 100
Persons prayig for the repeal ot the Bankruptcy
Act-for reasons set forth in the Petition.
The Bill to repeal the Bankruptcy Act 1876-was
again committee.
Mr. Cooper in the Chair.
Mr. R. J. P. Darrell moved that the following
words be added-" Provided that nothing herein
contained shall extend or be construed to extend
to or affect any Act done before the passing of this
Act, under the provisions of the Act to provide for
the better administration of the Estates ot Insoli
vent Debtors" hereby repealed-which was ^ ta-
to.
The question b,.'.:: put on the 1st clause as
amendtcu, it was affirm-ed.

Also, that the Zephyr has challenged and will sail the
Nautilus in the Great Sound, over an old Bermuda
Course, on Thursday, the 11th, at 1 o'clock.

On Thursday afternoon last, two very large Sting
Morays were seen at the Ducking Stool. After
swimming in the Shallow water for some time they
started off Westward, keeping close in to the rocks.
A Portuguese man living near, on being informed
of their whereabouts, took a staff and grange, and
having fastened several yards of rope to the staff,
with -:-*1 ,d.. aim, struck the largest of the fish,
just at the back of the head. In a moment the
fish darted off with lightning speed-the line run-
ning out so fast that the man's hands were consid-
erably blistered and cut. No less than three men
and several boys had hold of the rope, but unfor-
tunately at the first check, it broke-and the staff
could be seen passing through the water in an up-
right position. In a few moments the staff float-
ed in the water and on being brought ashore it was
discovered that the grange had been broken in two
at the shoulder, though it was of solid iron. The
size of the fish was apparently about 5 feet square ;
its companion was almost as large. The whip or
tail of each fish was distinctly visible when in the
shallow water.

Last week Veterinary Surgeon T. Outerbridge,
made an autopsy on a dog which was supposed to be
poisoned. On examination however, he found the
right side of the heart of the poor animal filled with
parasites of the lumbracoid a' -,, i some of them
measuring sixteen inches in length. Professor
Gamgee, in his work on diseases' of animals,
mentions this variety, as said to exist only on the
right side of the heart, never on the : -i. I..
Outerbridge has another .'.,.- of a worm, not
quite so long but much e ier in lo _y, which was
ejected from the nostrils ot a horse during a violent
fit of coughing, but which doubtless came from the
stomach, where, from irregular and improper feed-
ing, they at times become quite numerous fre-
quently cauasnig the death of the aminal.


child of ordinary capacity :J...P have the opportu-
nity of .:p..lj;ri ',,', at least, this amount of know-
ledge.
And if to ensure this some compulsory measure
is found to be necessary, the real interest of the
Colony is pai-am';. and though unpopular, it
ought not to be flinched from; the Mother Country
herself has set the example, a compulsory system
is now in operation over an area which contains
70 per cent of the population of England and
Wales, and the results have been all that could be
desired: the attendance at -Ell.,.-i:ty Schools is
steadily incre..n~. in fact it has more than dou-
bled within the last 1,':. years.
1Ve much desire the voluntary educational
system in Bermuda could be pronounced a success,
but we fear, that the ,,:,t of the Board of Edu-
cation conclusively proves, that under it a very
large number of .',,. :. are growing up in ignor-
ance; the common opinion that it is chiefly the
poorer white people who are indifferent to the edn-
cation of their children, is a very erroneous one;
whatever may have been the case immediately after
emancipation, many of the coloured people now
are equally so, otherwise how can the irregularity
of attendance in coloured schools be accounted
for ? We find from Appendix A of the Board's
Report, that in the quarter ending December 31st,
1878, in one of these schools the ratio of attendance
is only 56 per cent, in another it is as low as 46 per
cent., i. e., in the one case the average attendance
was slightly more than half the children whose
names were on the ':'..Lk, and in the other case
even less ..'. half.

YACHT RACES.
SIt is understood that the yacht Zephyr has
challenged the Unknown to sail a Race on the North
Side of Bermuda, this .day, Tuesday, the 9th Septem-


I-. great question of elementary Education
in i -. ,.1 is one which in our opinion, has not
received that large share of attention which it impe-
ratively demands; for we venture to say that there
is, at present, no matter of public concern which can
compare with it in importance, or which more vi-
tally concerr,, the true welfare of the Colony.
The -...u.-'i:n which presses itself upon us, is,
shall the rising generation, they who in a quarter
of a century from .'. time, will form a large pro-
portion of the community, be allowed to grow up
in ignorance, almost totally unacquainted, many
of them, with the most eimple- branches of know-
ledge P or shall some wise and effectual measures
be taken to secure to them a sufficient degree of
education ?
We greatly wish. :.it we could speak hopefully
on the subject, but we feel, that at present, the edu-
cational outlook in Bermuda is in truth a gloomy
one, and judging from the last report of the Board
of Education, it would appear that matters are not
improving, but rather growing worse.
We propose to give a few facts and figures, which
may help to illustrate the lamentably backward and
unsatisfactory state of elementary education in the
Colony, in the hope that those upon whom the re.
sponsibility rests r :- seriously endeavour to find
a remedy for it.
The Vice-President of the Committee of Council
on Education, who from his position may be con-
sidered an authority, speaking in the English House
of Commons during the present Session, estimated
the population of England and Wales at 22,700,000,
of these he calculated that 3,400,000 were children
who ought to be in attendance at school, the pro-
portion therefore being rather more than one in
seven of the whole pulati in,
Now calculating -,on this as our basis, and al-
lowing for increase since the last census, we may
estimate the .:i of Bermuda at about 12,-
600, which would give some i, ..' children of
school age in the C._'' -,; if we turn to the report
of the Board of i'.. :!,.n for 1878, we shall find
that the largest number of children :-..': I..ly pre-
sent at all at :.-- in any one quarter was 697, the
.-.:-.n- attendance for the four quarters being
about 640 : now, even supposing that our estimate
of 1,800 is somewhat too large, and making a lib-
eral allowance for number of children who are
being educated in other than Common .. it is
manifest that there must be some Jiu.'c.. i of child-
ren, who are growing up in our midst, without any
school training or advantages whatsoever; nor is
this all, for even of those present at school, only an
average of 154, or less than one in four are reported
by the Inspector as having made satisfactory pro-
gress in their studies, a result which we believe to
be chiefly due, not-to lack of zeal and competency
on the part of most of the teachers, but to irregula-
rity of attendance on the part of the children.
The money too, which is.a ,'~ib!.'. in Bermuda
from all sources for educational -,1 ;..-., in Com-
mon Schools is r'a. Z=.,tly small and insufficient in
amount, it would appear that during the year 1878
only 634 12/2 was paid to the Teachers. 379 18/4
being contributed by the Board of Education and
254 13/10 in fees .': --n the pupils, the cost of edu-
cation being less than one pound per child;
whereas in England it ranges from 2 13/5 in the
Schools of the London School Board, to 1 10/ in
Roman Catholic Schools; it is not to be expected
that an efficient system of education can be main-
tained, unless the Teachers are sufficiently remu-
nertcE, and it is possibly owing to the smallness of
the payments made to them, that there is a falling
off in the number of the schools aided by the Board
from 15 to 12.
There can be no doubt, that the standard of edu.
cation in the Common Schools in Bermuda is la-
mentably low, and in consequence, the attainments
of many of the children, when the time comes for
them to leave school) are so exceedingly meagre ;
that, we are very rn,. L i-inUd to think, that but a
small proportion .' *b, retain enough of their
knowledge to be of -"y practical use to them in
their after life.
Of the evil results, nay of the positive dangers,
which must follow to a community from the preva-
lence of a low state of education in its members, it
is not necessary to speak; we earnestly trust that
this great question may receive the calm and dis-
passionate (, n.-i r'..o;. which it deserves, and that
those whose duty it is to deal with it, will take a
broad view of the matter, and will give their best
endeavours to the framing of such measures as may
work a cure for the ills which threaten us.
We do not wish to be considered, as advocating
an expensive, or liberal education, at the cost, or
through the intervention, of the State; but we
do hold that it is the lufy of the State to provide
efficient Common Schools, and we are prepared to
go further, and to say, that, if a parent neglects or
refuses to send his children, who are of a fitting
age, to School, that then the State has a right, or
possibly lies under an obligation, to interfere, and
to compel him to .'.: performance of this dut'-;
and if "I condition be such that he cannot possi-
bly defray the expense of his children's education,
the School fees should be provided at the cost of
the State.
Any man in the community who wilfully refused
to feed or clothe, his child's body, would be punish-
ed by Law, and deservedly so; from our point of
view the starvation of the child's mind by the pa-
rent is just as culpable, and ought in some way or
another to be prevented.
Tl;iu :- cannot be considered satisfactory until
the means of education, at any rate in the elemen-
tary subjects of Reading, Writing and the simple
rules of Arithmetic are brought within the reach of
all, and until steps are taken to secure, that every

endeavour to get from i-.i ..!, to hold the ap-
pointment, a regularly trained National School-
master, who should be required to devote his whole
time to the duties of dis office, paying longer
and more frequent visits to the schools, than can'
be made under the present system, and instructing
the Teachers in the proper methods of teaching and
managing the children P For the Teacher's art is i
not a thing to be picked up haphazard, but one
which needs to be taught and studied.
It would also be possible for the Inspector per-
sonally to superintend the studies of a few promis-
ing boys and girls who might wish to qualify
themselves as Teachers; if this could be tried, there
would be no necessity for the grant suggested by
the Board, for the education of Teachers; and
there are reasons which make us believe, that the
general result would be more satisfactory.
In conclusion we express our hope that this
pressing question of the education of the young
may be successfully handled, and we trust that
some wholesome and fitting measures may be
framed, which will secure to the rising generation
the blessings of education and enlightenment; it is a
matter which concerns all, especially those who
have the real good of their country at heart, for the
future welfare of the Colony is intimately and in-
separably bound up with it.

THE REGATTA.
All those interested in boat-racing as well as a
day's outing in the Great Sound, had their wishes
more than gratified on Thursday, the 4th Septem-
ber, by witnessing two of the best races that have
been sailed in Bermuda for some time past. Al-
though the morning broke very cloudy and rainy,
which put a damper on the spirits 6f many who
were astir early, and who had set their minds on
a day's sport, yet in time the weather cleared,
and a steady breeze from South-west -: :'.a. up to
gladden the hearts of racers and pleasure seekers.
The day was all that could have been wished for
for i:.:'.-_-, and -uit.:.. at least two-thirds of the
yachts, which gradually made their appearance
I:.::. their different *,i um stations.
The rain in the morning caused a little delay in
the start of the stake-boats from Hamilton, but as
soon as ,-t'.: i .. they were placed and the Ensign
lowered to half-mast, as a signal for racing-boats
to prepare to start. At 10 o'clock the little Nancy
Lee was started, and soon proved to those waiting
at the stake-boat that with her long start she would
prove a troublesome foe. In due course the Irene,
Alarm, Julia, '. o.'; -, Nameless and Zephyr left the
stake-boat and fought hard with one another to
win the Duke of Edinburgh's Cup. All the yachts
seemed in perfect order, and the many well-known
boatmen were at their places, each bent on winning
the race. But there was one crew of boys who
looked too inexperienced to race against such skil-
ful pilots, and many was the laugh had at the
Commodore for taking such a crew; but, as will be
seen by the result, he, in his turn, had to laugh at
them when his crew worked equally well with any
other on the course. The boats were all handled
well, each one making the best of her way to the
winning stake-boat, and it was indeed a pretty
sight to see the seven yachts running to leeward
with a press of canvass which, at any ordinary time,
would be considered dangerous. The little Nancy
Lee kept ahead until rounding the leeward stake-
boat, followed fast by the Nautilus, but the former
soon found that with a slight increase of wind she
could stand up no longer, and eventually went to
bottom in tolerably shallow water. The Nautilus
had no further trouble and won the Cup Race by
3m. 20s. ahead of the Nameless, the Julia being third
boat.
No time was lost in getting to leeward to start
the second race for the Hamilton Stakes," which
was commenced about 5'30. With the exception
of the Nancy Lee, and with the addition of the Un-
known and Victoria, the same boats started for the
Purse. The X'n,.;'il soon found that instead of
having the Nameless for an antagonist the Unknown
was the boat likely to give most trouble. The
Irene rounded the windward stake-boat first, fol-
lowed closely by the Julia, she in her turn followed
more closely by the Nautilus, but the quick hand-
ling of the squaresail by the amateur crew soon
placed the Nautilus second boat, and it did not then
take her long to take the lead of the Irene. A still
prettier sight was presented to the eyes of the
lookers-on by the boats running to leeward, in this
race, the two large boats with an enormous amount
of canvass spread to catch the wind, which had
now freshened, added considerably to the general
appearance of the racing yachts. The Unknown, as
usual, looking perfection, bore down on smaller
boats like a cloud, and considerably decreased the
distance between them, but the owner, to his sur-
prise, no doubt, found that once more he was foiled,
and that some faster sailing was drawn out of a
boat which he thought he could beat without very
much trouble. The spectators now centered their
interest in the Nautilus, Julia and Unknown, and
many was the bet made that Joe would catch the
Commodore yet; but, unfortunately for those so
betting, at 5 minutes past 7 o'clock the Nautilus
passed the winning stake-boat, and carried both
the Cup and the Purse to Hamilton. The Un-
known was a good second, being beaten only by lm.
50s.; she was followed by the Nameless in 3 min.
time.
The day was all that could be desired and lovers
of boat-racing were thoroughly satisfied with the
day's sport. We hope that soon we shall have a
repetition of last Thursday, when, we are sure,
even more interest will be taken, now that there is

A REBEL EXILE'S CAREER.
Judah P. Benjamin as an English L,,wyer-He Buys
A 60,000 House in Paris.
(From the New-Orleans Democrat.)
A few days ago, in an article on the Tehuantepec
route, we related the incident oi Butler'sseizure of the
bank-box and appropriation thereof as constituting the
whole property of the then Secretary of State of the
Confederate States. The contents consisted of Te-
huantepec bonds, and the Confederate secretary, when
informe.i of Butler's exultation over his capture, re-
marked, with a smile, that with the loss of those bonds
he would be left without a dollar in the world. This
confession was made at a dinner at which a dish of
rusty bacon, cooked with cow-peas, and washed down
with corn coffee, composed the whole menu. A gentle-
man over 50, who had for 30 years enjoyed an income
of over $20,000 per annum, was reduced to this con-
dition in two years by his devotion to duty, to princi-
ple, and to the demands ol honor and patriotism. It
was a grand sacrifice, worthy of conspicuous record
amiiong the many other similar examples of sell-sacri-
fice and sincerity of conviction and duty on the part
of those who hve been o en so grossly maligned as in-
t< rested and designing politicians in the late war.
In 1865 the impoverished Secretary of State of the
late Confederacy, after the downfall of the Confederacy
ainnd the dispersion of its Government, tramped on foot
from Central Georgia, and escaped in an open bout to
Nassau, with a single ten-dollar gold-piece in his
pocket, which he gave to the negro who rowed the
small boat that so safely carried him beyond the reach
of the pursuing foe. In 1879, 14 years afterward,
this fugitive becomes the recognized head of an insti-
tution of all others the most exclusive and difficult in
which to attain prominence and success-the Bar of
England. One gratifying proof of the reality of this
achievement is furnished by ri a l.u;. which we learn
authentically, that MAr. J. P. Benjamin, Queen's
Counsel, recently purchased a very elegant residence
in Paris, giving therefore 300,000 francs cash. It is
added that this large sum does not exceed one-half of
his yearly income from his practice in the highest
courts ot Great Britain. To these courts the large
pressure upon his time and labor has compelled Mr.
Benjamin to limit his practice. The briefs declined
by him would double his income. But, always accus-
tomod to do well and completely everything he under-
tookhe has been forced to reduce the amount of his
labor within the compass of his wonderful capacity and
industry. We doubt if these have ever been equaledd
by any other aspirant for distinction and success at the
English or American bar. From gentlemen who have
recently called on him in London, we learn that his
labors are incessantly prosecuted in his office for at
least 12 hours out of the 24, and that he still has a
few hours to spare for enjoyment and recreation with
his friends, to whom he is always welcome as one of
the most genial and vivacious of companions. So far
from being affected by this intense labor his physique
exhibits a scarcely perceptible change from that which
he exhibited when he was a leader at our bar, and at
that of the United States Supreme Court, a Senator
from Liousiana, and the most brilliant and effective
orator and debater in that body 20 odd years ago, or
when Secretary of State of the Confederate States 14
years ago. His hair still maintains its raven hue, un-
trosted by 67 years of trial and labor; his flashing
eyes have all their old brilliancy, needing no aid of
glasses to perform their work, and his handsome face
wears still that winning smile, which is rarely pro-
served by masculine countenances, and is one of the
happiest constituents of womanly beauty. The only
perceptible change observable in his manner is in the
greater gravity and precision of his utterance, and in
the restraint of a vivacity which, in his middle age,
might be properly described as boyish in its trrcdom
{gayety.

A SPOTTED NEGRO.


An esteemed friend of Webb City sends us the
following: "Of the seven wonders of the world the
United States furnish five-the Mammoth Cave, the
Niagara Falls, the Natural Bridge, the Hot Springs,
and last, but not least, the Ethiopian who is chang-
ing his color.' The two last belong to Arkansas,
and are pre-eminently the most wonderful. The
former are common in a small way, their magnitude
making them remarkable. But the latter stands un-
approached in the history of the world. The public
have seen or heard of the Hot Springs, but this rad -
ical positive and permanent change of color from
very black to a very white man is a freak of nature
unparalled in the history of man. This individual
(Frank Jones (ex-officio colored), having lived a
quiet life of thirty years (but now fifty-five years of
age) five miles south of Ozark, Franklin County,
Arkansas, the public know nothing of this phenome-
non. He was born black, of black parents, and re-
mained so until he was about grown, when a white
spf, resembling that of a lamb, appeared on his
breast, and from that the spots spread in each di-
rection. He is now a spotted man, being about
half black and half white, and becoming more and
more white all the time. The spots are very deci-
ded, white being very white, and black very black,
except those that are undergoing the change from
black to white, wNhich are of a grayish yellow. Ie
is in perfect health every day. I regard him as ab-
solutely the greatest wonder of the age."-- JcAcson-
ville, (Flo.) Daily Press, August 14.

The adoption of gas as an ironmaking fuel is stead-
ily advancing in Birmingham. An addition of' a
Casson-Dormoy furnace at the Round Oak Works
of the Earl oi Dudley enables about one half or the
product o! that concern to be made in gas furnaces.
The Manager of Earl Dudley's iron works is so confi-
dent of the success of the new process that he has of-
fered to lav down furnaces at the establishment of a
neighboring iron-master if 'the latter will consent to
pay him only the money saved in fuel during the first
year's working.


CETYWAYO AND WOLSELEY.
DID THE ENGLISH GENERAL OFFER A TREVARD
FOR THE LACK !G iG S r EAD?
In the House of Counion;r .n Ag!,. 14, Mr. Ander-
on asked the Secrelary ol Sia, for tse Colon if
oe had seen in the I ..:. 7' ". News th stahtemeit
,:'1, ab'-.l by Cape rTwn correaspond.to' that Sir
Jarnet Wolseley hnid put a price on Cotywayo's
hcad, and if he could yet say whether or not there
was any foundation for the sttatemont.
Sir M. H. Beach--I can only say, Mr. ',-,', ,c .
that the statement is not contained in any commu-
nication I have received from -' :t- Africa. Sir
Garnet Wolseley has stated that he thinks (',, -
wayo's continued presence in Zululand is very undo'-
iirable, and that opinion .' t ,.- 1.. be shared by the
Zulus themselves. I h.-tv- i .-. i' that Sir Garnet
Wolseley will endeavor to take Cetywayo prisoner.
[Ministerial cheers.]
Mr. Anderson said that as he felt obliged to make
some remarks on the extraordinary answer given by
the right honorable gentleman, he should have very
reluctantly to the end with a motion. [Loud cries
of Oh!" from the Ministerial benches.] Amid
continued interruption from the Ministerial benches
e proceeded to remark that he felt bound to ask for
a distinct explanation from the Government of what
were their views about the offering of a reward for
Cetywayo's head. He i:..,.. that the public gen-
erally would agree with him in the opinion ."
i.;. i had already reaped a -.-iue :,: crop of in-
famy from the Zulu war. and '.. they did not want
to be dragged down to a lower i-. ,i of infamy still
by the employment of brigands and assassins to take
away the life of the man who was opposed to them.
[Oh, oh!] Cetywayo was no criminal, and should
not have a reward set on his head. Such a course
of warfare had not been adopted by this country
since the time when $ -), "'-.0 was put on the head
of Charles Edward Stuart, the Pretender, and he
should not like to see that evil example follow-
ed now. The verdict of the country upon Coty-
wavo would be that he was ag .'-,. monarch, de-
feoding his country against one of the most wanton
and wicked invasions that ever could be made upon
an ii!,'.t".- -- [Cries of "Oh."] The
Secretary of the Colonies had given an answer
as if he not only did not know, and did not care,
whether it was true or not that a reward was offered
for Cetywayo's head. In fact, he rather seemed to
indicate that probably Sir Garnet Wolseley would
adopt that course; and although the country was
not yet conquered. Sir Garnet Wolseley was send-
ing home troops as if he were now going to trust to
some other means than honest warfare for attaining
his ends.
Sir M. H. Beach-What I said was that I had no
doubt that Sir G. Wolseley, having expressed an
opinion that it was not .'J.-ir., .. that Cetywayo
should continue in Zululand-an opinion which ap-
pears to be shared by a large number of Cetywayo's
own subjects-will do the best he can to take him
prisoner. I should like to know what I have said,
or what the Government has said, or what has ap-
-or'*-1 anywhere else, that justifies the honorable
gentleman in charging Sir G. Wolseley with putting
a fine upon Cetywayo's head, and saying that he had
hired assassins and murderers to put an end to Cety-
wayo'slife. [Cheers. I If we cannot trust persons
who are sent to distant countries to manage the af-
tairs of a great empire better than the honorable
member for Glasgow trusts them, I think we shall
do great injustice to the ones now serving us.
[Ministerial cheers.]
Mr. Courtney thought that the Secretary for the
Colonies had misunderstood the question. [" aN",
hear." and No, no." He (Mr. Couriney) assumed
that Mr. Anderson utterly disbelieved that any Eng-
lish Commander in the position of Sir G. Wolseley
would offer to put a price on the head of an enemy;
but, as the statement has been made and repeated in
the Colonial papers, he desired to receive from the
Secretary for the Colonies an indignant denial. Un-
fortunately, the Secretary for the Colonies did not
deny it. He did not even say it was impossible to
suppose such a thing.
Sir P. O Brien said that a simple question had been
asked-namely, whether or not a statement was
correct, and whether or not a telegram would be
sent to the Cape stating that if such a thing had been
done it had not the sanction of the Government.
There was nothing in this which exceeded the rights
of a member of Parliament. [Hear, hear.]
The Chancellor of the Exchequer-The Govern-
ment has no information of anything of the kind hav-
ing taken place as the putting of a price on Cety-
wayo's head, and I do not believe it How are we
to answer questions of this sort based on information
from the Colonial papers ? The honorable baronet
asked why 'the Government had not telegraphed.
lie answered, because the telegraph to the Cape was
not yet completed. [Laughter. ]
Major Nolan justified the question of Mr. Ander*
son, on the ground that there was something like a
precedent for what was said to have been done, ia
the price put by the Emperor Maximilian on the
head of Juarez.
Sir J. MeKenna denied that Maximilian had put
a price on the head of Juarez. [Cries of Ques-
tion," and laughter.]
Mr. Anderson said that had the Secretary for the
Colonies given the answer now given by the Chan-
cellor of the Exchequer, that he did not ';. i.?.: the
story, he would not have troubled the House.

Miss Margaret Sinclair, of Ulster and EdinburgP,
one of the last survivors of the Abbotsford circle,
has just died. She was the personal friend of Anne
Scott, Sir Walter's daughter; she was intimate with.
the princesses of the old royal family, and retained
to the last a multitude of recollections of the world


of two generations ago. She had the curious for-
tune of being g'-,ai'iibt' r to Prince Charles Ed-
ward's protectress (her great grandmother, Lady
Margaret Macdonald), and of being presented at
Court in her extreme youih by the old Duchess of
Gordon, the celebrated beauty. She was one of
f. f', i children, who were all distinguished for their
appearance and talent.
