11-30.

To the Editor of the Royal Odzette.
DEAR Mu. EinToR,-I was pleased to notice in
Gazette of 26th ult., that the attention of the
Board of Works has been called to the serious ac-
cident that happened at Bailey's Bay on Friday
previous, and I have no doubt that now the Board
of Works will see the necessity of putting up a
guard wall there and at one or two other places
where it is required.
I expect before long you will have to chronicle
some serious accident having happened at the
Causeway Bridge; the bridge is provided with two
splendid lamps, one side showing red (signifying
danger) the other side white, and a person approach-
ing the bridge by land or sea, if the lamps are
lighted, can tell at a glance if the bridge is open or
shut. But for some unaccountable reason these
two splendid lamps are not lighted.
I have been given to understand, by good autho-
rity, that a few months since a gentleman arrived
at the bridge with his yacht at a very late hour, and
not wishing to disturb the keeper of the bridge, the
owner of the yacht opened the bridge, put his boat
through and then closed it.
Now this may not happen again for some time
to come but a person passing at that moment would
never have suspected the bridge to be open, and
would in all probability have driven overboard, horse
carriage and aln. If these lamps were lighted such
an accident could not occur, as the lights would in-
dicate whether the bridge was open or shut.
The convenience of these lights to boats coming
in the Ferry after dark would be very great: more
than once boats have run ashore in Whale Bone
Bay, just to the north 9f Ferry Point; having, in
the dark, mistaken that Bay for the entrance to the
Reach; this could not happen if the lamps on the
Causeway Bridge were lighted as boats could steer
for the light and get in safely. I will not take up
more of your valuable space, doubtless the Board
of Works will see the necessity of causing those
lampk to be lighted, as the cost for oil for a year
would not be more than Two Pounds.
Yours, &c.,

he was met by a stalwart fellow, who pulled out a

exclaimed Foote. I was just about making the

have fallen in with one of ourselves, 1I'll give you
a share of a prime job I have in hand. Come
along. Taken off his guard by the confidence dis-
played, the real rogue joined the counterfeit, and

CRICKET.
The. Challenge published a few weeks ago, by the
Captain of the South Champion Cricket Club,
was accepted by the Lilly Whites of Hamilton,
and the match was accordingly played at Spanish
Pointon Thursday last, in the presence of a large
assemblage of the lovers of the Game. The result
was a victory for the L. W. C. C. the South Cham-
pion's having as usual, refused play when victory
seemed doubtful; no doubt they were under the
impression that
"They who fight and run away
Will live to fight another day."

can not prove t.l-.-ui- -, : .. as such unless they Con-
quer or die. The -i .-i' h-. i:'-1 .. now i.: -'-. -

From the .._. which have reached us of the
ability and diligence, the wisdom and kindness dis-
played by Bishop Jones in the ., *.r of his high
office in the extensive diocese of t-: foundland, the
members of the Church of E.- .I 1 in this Colony

A NARROW ESCAPE AND A GALLANT EXPLOIT.-
Last WV:.':A."- -fternoon as the hired assistant of
the Keer' -, -,;.i Canseway '.'" '-' was opeaing- tho.
Swinea Bridge for a boat to pass i-.- I -',i. he -noticed a
small coloured boy named Joseph Bascome, hanging toK
the north end of it. t :.i.l-, ic".' the .' "
position of the boy, the assistant continued to .. -ve !
Bridge, and, as the x,.v I..l.- expected, the boy very
soon became exhausted and .',.. .-..- into the T.-.. i.
There was great '.:-.' 'i':.; and running hither and
thither, and the boy was fast drowning, when Master
Thomas Lightbourne, a son of T. W. Lighibourne,
Esqr., our Revenue Ofcer, sprung .v-' -:. *. in his
clothes and grasped the boy Bascome, and despite the
heavy tide, manfully fought his way toward .'- pier.
By this time Captain Outerbridge-who was in the
honse when the accident occurred-had arrived, and de-
cending on the pier lifted boh boys out of the water-.
Master Lightbourne in an exhausted state, and little
Bascome in a state of unconsciousness. The -:.';.. .
means for restoration were employed and the boy
quickly recovered consciousness, and is none the worse
of his perilous bath. The conduct of young Lifhlt-
bourne, whois only 14 years of .',-..-, is highly *.:- of

DEAR MR. LEE,-We are sadly in want .:, .some-

Every one would spare a few .:.:.' n convenient-

What a winter-long recreation for visitors and

Mr. Miles' name would be .- i..., ',:.r *:- genera-

thing new under the sun," in the shape of a Ska-
ting Rink when the Mercury ranges 50.
'"i,:.ild he succeed, I do not hesitate to say his

In a short time, Mr. Lee, he v,--. be a million

A STRANGE COLLISION-AA 'Ei-EL SANK

SEA MONSTER.
The steamer P. C..i.:. arrived yesterday from
Rotterdam, :in on l,..2.. Ci;, .: Larsen and
the crew twelve men all told of the Norwegian
bark :,' .,- .-..-. Captain Larsen reports that at
11 o'clock on the '-.-. .4in-, of September 11, when
in latitude 47-22 north, and longitude 43-33 west,
or about mid ocean, his vessel collided with an un-
known sea monster and was so :*.1; injured that
she sank within half an hour. No one on board
of the bark got a good view of the monster, but
most of ihe sailors are inclined to the opinion that
it was a *::,-.i.., whale. The monster sank im-
r.r: -i.;.- y and was not seen again, but the surface
of the ocean was dyed with blood for a considerable
distance. The crew bad barely time to lower the
boats when i:,,! bark sank. Fortunately several
hours after the collision the steamer P. Caland
hove in sight and at 3 o'clock they were taken on
hoard and brought to this city. The Columbus was
bound from London to Quebec. The crew will be
cared for i,- the Norwegian Consul and forwarded

IMPORTS FROM GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND.-
A. table has been prepared by the Bureau of Sta-
tistics showing the exports froin Great Britain and
Ireland to the United States for the seven months
(;.,.- Jupe 31, 1 879, as compared with the corres-
ponding period of 1878, The comparison is decid-
edly favorable to Pb i.i commerce with this coun-
try, and shows an increase of exports this year in
nearly all of the principal articles of British and
Irish manufactures. In cotton piece goods there
has been an increase of nearly 7, i, -.0 yards ; in
i-r. iron nearly 18,000 tons, and in railroad iron,
where the exports to this country in the seven months
of 1878 were only 568 tons, in the corresponding
period of this year they were increased to 8,957 tons.
The exports of wrought iron, steel, tin, silks, rib-
bons, etc., were all increased this year, whereas a
few articles, like carpets, woollen stuffs, etc., have
decreased. The total value of exports from Great
Britain and Ireland to all countries during the same
months, ended July 81, 1878, was i11,061,257,
and for the corresponding period of this year
105,435,115, a decrease of ,'.J2, 142. The total
value of imports into Great Britain from all coun-
tries during the same period of 1878 was .'.',-
668, and during the corresponding period of 1879,
203,287,795, a decrease of nearly 23,000,000.
It will thus be seen that the balance of trade was
considerably against Great Britain for the period
of cou(ui.'iL-i`on last year, and has h:cre ms di this

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


A NEW WAIR CLOUD).

Ill-Feeling Between Germany and Russia.- LON-
DON, Ang. 26.-The Forei.gn Office at Berlin has
addressed a letter to the Imperial Chancellor, making
formal complaint of the undisguised hostility towards
Grrmany, which has, for some time been manifested
by the Russian press. This letter, which is understood
to have been dictated by Prince Bismarck, is couched
in extremely plain and emphatic language. It calls the
attention of the Russian Government to the fact that
institutions of Russia give the Government absolute
control over the press ot that Empire, and if the
Russian newspapers are permitted persistently to
express hostile sentiments towards a country with
which Russia is at peace, it must be with connivance
and tacit approval of Russian administration. A reply
to this letter has been received at Berlin from the
Russian chancellor, and the purport of its contents
has been communicated tothe semi-official press of Ber-
lin. The Russian letter, which is written in the usual
adroit style of Muscovite diplomacy, states that His
Majesty, the Czar, finds it impossible, even if it were
desirable, to check the expression of opinion on the
part of independent organs of public sentiment. In
Berlin this reply is considered as disengenuous in the
extreme. The absolute control which the Russian
administration exercises over newspapers of the Em-
pire is too well known to permit the excuse set forth
in the Russian letter to be accepted as anything but a
mockery. The estrangement between Russia and
Germany daily increases and it is believed that unless
Prince Bismarck is playing one of his unexpected
games, of which the result is to be exactly the con-
trary of that expected by spectators, war between the
two Empires is not improbable. Meanwhile the re-
lations between Austria and Germany daily become
more cordial and if things continue as they are, in the
event of war between Russia and Germany, Austria
would be found on the side of the latter.

THE CHINA-JAPAN DIFFICULTY.

A quarrel has arisen between China and Japan
as to the ownership of the Loochoo Islands. For
many years past the Islanders have maintained a
government under the joint protection of their two
great neighbors, paying an annual tribute to each;
but recently the Japanese government took posses-
sion of these Islands, established a new form of
administration, and sent notice to the Chinese that
hereafter no tribute would be paid. The Chinese
Minister at Tokio has addressed a long and some-
what threatening note to the Japanese Government,
insisting that the seizure is in violation of a well
established understanding, and that the Emperor of
China will not allow himself to be thus deprived
of his rights. The Japanese had not at last ac-
counts made any answer to this remonstrance, but
their actions indicate clearly that they weighed the
possibility of incurring the hostility of the Chinese
before they made the seizure, and are, therefore,
prepared to defend their claim to the Islands, if
need be, by force of arms. A number of war vessels
have recently been built for the Japanese navy, in
England, with special regard to river navigation,
and as China is the only country whose Island
waters they would care to navigate, this precaution
certainly indicates that in a quarrel between the two
governments the Japanese would not back down in
consequence of the bullying tone which the Chinese
diplomatists usually adopt in negotiations with
their Asiatic neighbors. In the matter of naval equip-
ments the Chinese have not been backward, for Sir
William Armstrong has recently built for them a
number of very fast steam gun-boats, at a cost of
150,000 each. These vesst Is wtil carry one35 ton
gun each, and will also be provided with arrange-
ments for the discharge of torpedoes. A Chino-
Japanese war would be a naval one, as neither side
possesses the facilities for transporting an army of
invasion.
THE FRANKLIN SEARCH-PROGRESS OF THE AMER-
JOICAN EXPEDITION.-ST. JOHN's, N. F., August 23.-
The Franklin search party landed from the ship
Eothen, on the north shore of Hudson's Bay, near
Depot Island, on August 9th, 1878, all hands consist-
ing of Lieut. Schwatka, United States Army; W. H.
Gildell, New York Herald; Henry Klietchak, Frank
Mellus and Esquimaux Joe, were in excellent health
alter the voyage North. The party started on a
sledgejournev for King William Land on April 1,1879,
with four additional innuits and their families, the
party making up in all sixteen souls. They took four
sledges and about sixty dogs. Since landing, the time
of the party has been employed in making careful
surveys of the adjacent coast, from Cape Fullerton to
Marble Island. Lieutenant Schwatka has made a
special sledge journey by way of Connery River to
Wager River, in order to see it that route would be
feasible in the spring. He decided to continue further
on Connery River, owing to its westerly tendency, it
being more directly on our course. He discovered and
named the Lorilliard River while on a journey up the
Connery River, which was discovered and named by
Colonel Gilder when on a land journey last August.
The general course of the last mentioned river is
northwest for a distance of 95 to a 100 miles. This
was calculated, however, by dead reckoning. It was
found to empty with the Lorilliard River into Win-
chester Inlet, near Depot Island. The mouth of the
river was located by astronomical observation. While
on a surveying trip last fall Lieut. Schwatka, Klietchak
and Mellus were cast away on Barren Island, near the
mouth ofi Winchester Inlet, where they remained for
three days without food. During the same gale the
brig M. J. Ross, a New Bedford whaler, went ashore
near Cape Kendall Romes and became a total wreck.


Captain Sinclair and crew were safely landed after
eight days of exposure, on the shoe where there was
neither shelter nor food. They started again in whale
boats and were picked up by the Abby Bradjord,
Captain Fisher, and the crew was subsequently divided
up among tour other whalers. Near Hudson's Bay,
Brevoort Lake, which is about fifty miles long, was
discovered by Colonel Gilder, while on a special sledge
journey in February and March to the Kinnepatoo
Esquimaux settlement to buy dogs for the party.

We find the following in an exchange:
lie was a wise Talleyrand who made it a rule
never to burn or write a letter. Just after M. Paul
de Cassagnac had raked up, by way of pendant to
M. Emile de Girardin's scurrility concerning the
Prince Imperial's death. Girardin's letter, telling
how the Empress Eugenie had smoothed the d)ing
pillow of his own child, another French journalist
produced M. Paul de Cassagnac's letter to Napole-
on III, at Wilhelmshohe, speakingof the role of Em-
peror as finished forever, declaring that France was
neither in want of a broken down old man nor of a
child, and that the writer held himself tree to serve
loyally any strong or vigorous man who might arise
whether he came from the Right or the Left. This
was rather "hard on" M. Cassagnac, inasmuch as
with the letter was published one from aion. Plon"
to the Emperor, offering to share his imperial cou-
sin's captivity and tendering homage and sympathy
in a really manly and tender style. At the same
time, while Victor Hugo's paper, Le Rappel, is bel-
lowing for the abolition of the Tuilleries from the
lace of the earth as a monstrosity, some unkind
wretch has fished out of Victor Hugos' works the
words written in 1841: "The Tuilleries is not
simply a chef d'wurve of the art of the sixteenth cen-
tury but large part of the nineteenth, This palace
no more belongs to the King but to the people. Let
us have it as it is. Our revolution has marked it
twice in front. On one of the facades it bears the
bullets of Aug. 10, on the other those of July 20.
It is holy."


QTTFBIC iGIi-LATvE DiV YFICULT.-Thue L- I
gislative Council of Quebec has refused to pass
the Supply Bill now before the House, and has
embodied their reasons for thus acting in an address
to His Honor the Lieut.-Governor, the concluding
paragraph of which is as follows:-
"And this Council, while declaring its willingness
to Grant to Her Majesty the Supplies necessary for'
the public service, deems itit is duty to delay the
adoption of the Supply Bill now before the Hous0
until it shall have pleased His Honor the Lieuten-
ant-Governor to choose advisers disposed to main-
tain his dignity by the fulfillment of the promises
made in his name, to respect the spirit of the Con-
stitution and the rights of the Province of Quebec,
by not incurring considerable expenses without the
consent of the Legislature, to uphold the dignity
and authority of our institutions by refraining from
interference in the application and execution of the
law, and who will at the same time be able to en-
force their views in the Legislature and justify this
Council in entrusting them with the management of
the public funds."
To which His Honor thus replied:-"The Lieut.-
Governor of the Province of Quebec has the honor
to acknowledge the receipt of the address which was
voted to him by the Legislative Council on the
28th, and which was delivered to him by the Hon.
President of the Council.
TFe Lieut.-Governor regrets that a difference
of opinion should have arisen between the Legis-
lative Council and the Legislative Assembly, and
he hopes that his constitutional advisers will find a
means of re-establishing harmony between these
two branches of the Legislature.
(Signed) Theo. Robitaille."
The Council, it is rumored, will persist in their
intention of rejecting the supplies.
It is said that the Lieut.-Governor's constituti-
onal advisers have the confidence of a large major-
ity of the Assembly.
The House of Assembly adjourne'l from 30th
August to September 2nd, without having received
any announcement from the Council in reference
to the Supply Bill.
NEWFOUNDLAND.-The Fortune Bay Outrage.-
[From a correspondent.]-It comes out at last that
information has been sought about, "The Fortune
Bay Outrage." American fishermen with the pro-
verbial brass of their country's impudence set their
seines for bait; our fishermen cut them, and threat-
ened them. if they did not desist in their poaching
propensities. Accordingly complaint was made,
and behold the demand for compensation. But the
N'ewfoundlauder,: edited by the Colonial Secretary,
put the matter at rest as far as our Government is
concerned when it says; We need not predict the
issue, but Mr. Secretary Evarts will have earned a
first prize for dexterity when he has 'contrived to
I rove to the Imperial authorities that the "outrage,"
w as on the side of the defenders of the law, and not
on that of the law-breakers."
The Government has wisely invested a portion of
the Fishery Award with the view of establishing
a Fishery Bureau, a department hitherto unknown
in Newfoundland. Much good is likely to result
from this appropriation. An allusion is made in
the report of the Chamber of Commerce to the in-
tention last spring on the part of the Dominion
Government to consider Newfoundland in the light
of a foreign country. But representations made to
them showed the balance of trade to be largely in
favor of the Dominion. This is how the matter
stood : Value of imports from the Dominion of
Canada for 1878, compiled from Customs returns,
$2,153,200; value of exports for same year from
Newfoundland to the Dominion ports, $268,722;
less value of goods exported in transit for Britain
and the United States, $119,580; thus the balance
was in favor of the Dominion to the amount of
$2,004,058.

UNSAFE SHips.-From a Parliamentary paper as
to ships ordered to be detained as unsafe, under the
provisions of the Merchant Shipping Act, from the
1st of January to the 30th of June, it appears that
the total number of vessels stopped was 427. Of
these 421 were detained by reason of alleged defects
in bull, equipment of machinery, and of this num.
ber only 5 on survey were found to be improperly
detained. Thirty-nine of the vessels were reported
by the crews. The number of ships detained for
overloading or improper loading was 96, and they
were all pronounced unsafe. Only one of them was
reported by the crew.-Londori News, Aug. 11.


A TRIP ROUND THE WonRLD.-Mr. Henri Say,
who lately visited Halifax in the Canadian steam
yacht Nooya, has purchased Dion Boucicault's
steam yacht "Shaugraun," which cost him $70,-
000, and is now known as the Henriette." 1He
will soon start out for his proposed trip from New
York round the world.
A Quebec despatch says: An "affair of honor"
has been arranged to come off, but how, when, or
where, has not leaked out. The principals are said
to be an officer of a French frigate and a French
gentleman who has been living in this city for sev-
eral months past. The cause of the quarrel is not
known, but, as usual, the name of a lady is mixed
up with it, and the insult is a grave one, the man-
of-wars-man having slapped his rival's face in the
presence of a large company. The gentleman has
induced a resident of St. Louis street to act as his
friend, and a brother officer will perform a like ser.
vice for his chum.
CHAMPION OF THr WORLD.-A despatch from
Sydney, N. S. W., state that the sculling match for
400 stg., and Championship of the World, be-
tween Trickett and Laycock, was towed on the
Parametta River, and won by Trickett by nine
lengths. Time 22m. 36s.

THE OUTBREAK IN CABUL.
The Report of the Massacre of Major Cavagnari and
his Followers Confirmed-Fresh Troops Ordered in
Readiness to Embark.
LONDON, Sept. 10.-The latest intelligence from
Ali Kheyl is dated the 9th inst. It confirms the re-
port that Major Cavagnari and his followers were
killed while charging upon the mob from the burning
the residency. The mob lost 210 men before Major
Cavagnari's party was overpowered by numbers.
The Times says that Gen. Roberts has only 2,000
infantry, 1,000 cavalry, and eight guns, which con-
stitutes an inadequate force to cope with the rebels
in Cabul and at the same time maintain its own
communications, and that Gen. Roberts will proba-
bly be compelled to delay his advance until at least
three fresh infantry regiments have reached the
Kuram Valley.
The Times mentions a rumour that some Afghan
troops who left Cabul intended to advance on the
I Shutargardan Pass. The significance of this, how-
ever, is destroyed by a despatch to the Daily News
from Allahabad announcing that the British troops
and guns are already there.
A despatch to the Daily News from Allahabad
says that as early as Aug. 16 the Ameer advised
Major Cavagnari to abstain from riding about Ca-
bul for fear of an attack upon him, and that Major
Cavagnari's relations with the Ameer latterly were
very cold.
*Two regiments at Chatham and eight batteries of
artillery have been ordered in readiness to proceed
to India. Several battalions will, if necessary be
ordered from the Cape of Good Hope to India.
ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 10.-The Gazette says:
The massacre of the members of the English
mission to Afghanistan obliterates the scientific
frontier between 'that country and India, and
necessitates the occupation of the whole of Afghan-
istan by the British. But this is incompatible
with the assurance given by England to Russia,
with whom there must be an understanding
in regard to the measures of satisfaction to be taken
by England. The Gazette proceeds to recommend
a solution by a partition of Afghanistan, so as to
bring the English and Russian dominions in contact
in central Asia."
LONDON, Sept. 10.-Major Conolly, the British
political agent, telegraphs officially from Ali Kheyl
that intelligence has been received there that the
Ameer is terribly perplexed at the reproach to his
name; that he is in privacy with a few faithful sir-
J dars, and that he is sure to come personally and
apoligize to the Government. Gholam Hassain, a
native Envoy of the Indian Government; was ex-
pected to arrive at Cabul on the 7th inst., and the
Ameer intended making excuses to him. There is
a rumour that the Sepoys who were with the Em-
bassy were taken prisoners, and are still alive. The
official telegram as to the loss by the mob was muti-
lated, and it may read 210 or 410; but the latter
figure is improbable.
Lord Branbrook, Secretary of State for India, has
issued a statement showing that the telegram to the
Daily News concerning the relations between Major
Cavaguari and the Ameer, in which it is stated that
a coolness bad latterly existed between them, was
not in accordance with the official reports from the
Viceroy.
The Press Association announces that no doubt
exists in the India Office that the outbreak has as-
sumed larger proportions than was at first supposed.
LONDON, Sept. II.-'The Standard's despatch from
Kohat announces that Gen. Roberts has left for the
front. He hopes to begin an advance within a fort-
night.
A despatch from Bombay says that the Ameer has
no authority whatever in Cabul.
Le Nord (semi-official) new spaper of Brussels re-
pels the charge that the Russians instigated the Ca-
bul revolt.
The Daily News despatch from Lahore says Gen.
Massey is pushing on Cabul, regardless of the diffi-
culties of procuring transportation. Gen. Roberts
is also believed to be making a dash for Cabul.
LONDON, Sept. 11.-The Standard's Vienna corres-
pondent positively announces that Persia will co-
operate with Russia in the Merv expedition, and
will contribute 1,000 infantry and 300 cavalry.

THE AFGHANISTAN OUTBREAK THE
BRITISH UNPREPARED FOR VIGOROUS ACTION-
SICKNESS AMONG THE TROOPS-WANT OF TRANS-
PORTATION, &C.
LONDON, Sept. 9.-Sir Stafford Northcote, Chan-
cellor of the Exchequer, speaking at Exeter yes-
terday, said that the outbreak at Cabul appeared


to have been unpremedtated. So far as could be
judged, the Ameer has been entirely true to the Brit-
ish, and it was certain that the assistance he im-
plored would not be refused. There seems to be
great doubt, he said, whether a prompt advance is
possible.
The military correspondent of the Times, review-
ing the situation, says : Twenty.five percent of the
native troops on the frontier havegoneon furlough.
The season has been an unusually sickly one. The
hospitals are full of men unfit for service by fever
and hardships of the campaign. There are very few
infantry regiments in the trans-Indus provinces
which could muster 500 men, and there is probably
not a cavalry regiment in the Punjaub which could
put 300 men on parade. The transport depart-
ments have been broken up and their reorganization
will be difficult. Upward of 60,000 camels are
officially reported to have perished in the late cam-
paign. General Roberts may have sufficient mules
and camels to admit of the hasty advance of a
brigade in light marching order, but the Govern-
ment of India will have to strain every nerve to
guard his communications and keep him provision-
ed. At least two months must elapse before men
to recruit the regiments can arrive from.England.
The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph at
Simla says that there will be no forward movement
in force before the end of September. By those
who knov the position of things an advance is de-
clared to be impossible.
It is reported that Cabul itself has been sacked
by a mob.
Large reinforcements of troops are to be dis-
patched to India to operate in Afghanistan, the 1st
batch leaving England on the 16th of the present
month by the troopship Malabar. The troopships
Jumna and Euphrates will follow speedily with
reinforcements.
SIMLA, Sept. 9.-The Governor of Candabar has
expressed his absolute devotion to the British, and
has offered to raise a contingent of troops.
