To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
MR. EDITOR,-In perusing the proceedings of the
Honorable House of Assembly of the 12th instant,
I noticed an amendment to the Bill to make bet-
ter provision for the maintenance of the Common
Schools," viz., the Board shall divide the grant as
follows :-that is to say, -'- exclusively for the
Education of Colored children-and -- exclu-
sively for the Education of White children-which
was affirmed.
The word exclusively" in the above amendment
strikes me with great force, and leads me to inquire
if it is admissible, in legislative enactments, and
whether it can be applied in making public grants
to Public or.Commou Schools, or to any other Pub-
lic or Common Institute.
I find the word "exclusive" means, debating,
excepting.
Will some one of the many readers of your paper
please inform me if it is right for the Hon. House
of Assembly to make any law that 'will debar any
person or class from entering Public or Common
Place.
With many thanks for space in your valuable
columns, I remain, yours,
INQUIRERl
Hamilton, Sept. 20th, 1879.

aental Lawn Tennis, at Montpellier, on Tuesday,
3rd September. In future the Band will play
rom 4"30 p.m. to 5'45 p.m.

FEARFUL PnoNosTicATozN.-The following, copied
rom "The Sanitarian," has been sent us for in-
ertion in the Gazette :
" The conjunction at perihelion of the four great
ilanets-Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune-
ccurs in 1880, for the first time since the opening
f the Christian Era. It is predicted that this event
will be attended by dire and dreadful disturbances
f the atmosphere of this planet. Extreme vicisi-
udes of weather, deluges followed by droughts,
causing the failure of crops, famine and pestilence.
rhe vitality of every living thing on the surface of
he Earth will be tested to the utmost. The theory
s that from 1880 to 1885 there is to be a general
nd prolonged period of pestilence and woe."

A Berkley School Medal, very perfect, was brought
o us one day last week by Mr. F. W. Vossmer, who
ound it in excavating for a cellar under the house
ie lately purchased nearly north of the Police office.
On one side are the words :-" To Berkeley Every
virtue under heaven"; in a circle, St. Paul's
College, Bermuda, Incorporated A. D., 1726." On
he reverse, God hath made all men of One Blood.
Acts XVII,-26."

AmnErorA EAGLE.-We are informed that the
American Eagle, brought from New York by Mr.
George 0. Whitney, is now on exhibition over the
Stores of Messrs. Wadson & Atkins, Front Street,
Hamilton.

THE ROWING RACE between Messrs. Gray's and
Watlington's Crews, in Hamilton Harbor, on
Thursday last, resulted in a victory for the latter's
crew of about 2 lengths. The weather was very
ine, and the boats were rowed in good form. There
were large numbers of people on either side the
Harbor, as well as in boats, and all seemed to take
great interest in the contest.

BERMUDA BEET AND ONION SEED.-There was
brought us yesterday by Mr. James Singleton, of
this Parish, a beautiful lot of the Red Top Beet
Seed, gathered by him last year. The seed
has been tried this season, and has come up re-
markably well.
Onion Seed, also gathered from last year's crop,
have been planted this year, and, to use the ex-
pression of the cultivator, has come up like oats."
A few ounces of the Beet Seed can be obtained of
the grower.

EXPERIENCE OF JOHN E.. SWAN, Branch Pilot, on
the management of the Quarantine Station at Nonsuch'
Island.-I was placed in Quarantine at Nonsuch
Island, from the Brig Wanderer, on the 30th Aug.,
ult., and was continued there till the 20th of Sept.
instant. I found there bedding and cooking uten-
sils and such necessary comforts, as tended to make
a man as comfortable as possible under the circum-
stances. Having been placed by the Health Offi-
cer under the care of Mr. and Mrs. Smith they
were very kind and attentive to me, and are seem-
ingly quite up to their duties. On one occasion
when I was sick and suffering they promptly made
a signal to the Health Officer and he very soon
came over and afforded me relief.
I am induced to make this report in contradiction
to the many rumours to a contrary effect, which
have been spread abroad.

BISHOPRIC OP JAMAICA.-The Archbishops of
Canterbury and York and the Bishop of London
have nominated to the vacant bishopric of Jamaica
the Right Rev. William George Tozer, D,D.
Bishop Tozer, who graduated from St. John's
College, Oxford, in 1851, was consecrated in 1863
as a missionary bishop, and as such he worked
for ten years on the East Coast of Africa. In 1873
he resigned his post on the ground of ill-health.
His health being now completely re-established, it
is, we understand, his intention to proceed without
delay to to the new diocese to which he has been ap-
pointed.-London Times, August 19th.

Spotted fever is reported to be raging in several
Georgia counties. There must be local cause for it,
and it should be searched out before the disease has
devastated the neighborhood.-NAr. Y. Herald, Sept.
11.
Severely cases of spotted fever is also reported
among the residents of the easterly portion of Jer.
sey City Heights.

' NEWFOUNDLAND.-The reported difficulty at Trin-
ity Bay, Newfoundland, between the resident fish-
ermen and the American fishermen, turns out to be
incorrect. On the arrival there of H. M. S. Zephyr,
sent from St. Johns in consequence of the unfav-
orable report, it was found that no obstruction had
been offered to Americans, and relations of a friend-
ly character appear to have been the rule between
the fishermen on both sides.

A Mrs. Greifelt of Brooklyn, N. Y., has entered
two actions in the Brooklyn City Court against
Charles and Frederick Figge, pork packers of that
place, to recover $30,000 for selling her diseased
pork, infected with trichinosis-which caused the
death of her husband, his mother-in-law, and en-
febled her own health materially.

THE AFRICAN WONDER.
We have to announce the arrival in this .colony
of Mr. John Barrow-the smallest man in the
world." Mr. Barrow, who is a native of Sierra
Leone, and is 35 years of age, is only 33 inches in
height, and with the exception of having been born
without arms, is well made, active and intelligent,
converses freely about his travels, and is evidently
an acute observer of men and things generally.
The facility with which Mr. Barrow makes his feet
supply the place of hands, in such operations as
writing, shaving, &c., is truly extraordinary.-Bar-
bados Paper.

From the West Indies and Demerar
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shai
arrived at St. Georges from St. Thomas on Wed
nesday last, having been detained at that Islar
two days beyond her usual time,as we notified
she would likely be for the Colon Mail.
The Beta left for Halifax at 12 meridian o
Thursday.
We received our usual exchange files from th
West Indies and Demerara by the Beta, from which
we glean some few items of interest.
DEMERARA.-The Summary for Home Read
ers" of Royal Gazette of 4th inst., says, "the fe
estates that are still "going round" are getting ex
cellent returns-two and a half hogsheads per acr
are being reported from different quarters. Thi
return, with the rates at present for sugar, woul
soon place the estates in a comfortable position.
What produce has been made is all bein
shipped to England, the American market offering
no inducement to send shipments in that direct
tion.
The pilfering of money and notes from letters i
course of transmission by the Post Office employes
is becoming too common. The Inspector General
of Police has prosecuted two men and one woman
for this offence.
The Insurance offices refuse to pay Mr. Bourne
the amount of his policies for the losses he sus-
tained by the fire though he was acquitted of wil-
fully setting fire to his premises.
TRINDAD.-Sugar shipped to 27th August, 65,570
hhds. The value of the Exports for the first seven
months of this year, was 1,688,793, and the imports
for same period 1,290,050, sugar exports was 760,-
016, and cocoa 310,449. Street tramways was an
absording consideration. The Chronicle says: that
they are wanted and must be had, is a settled con.
viction on many minds." Tramways and railways
are extending rapidly in Trinidad.
GRENADA.-Cocoa has now become the leading
staple of the Island as it now tops sugar. The co-
coa from Trinidad brings the highest prices in the
London Market;
ST. VINCENT.-Mr. Shaw, the late Treasurer, is
to be tried for misappropriation of public funds at
the next Court of Grand Sessions of the Peace.
It is said that the highest authorities in the Island
fre in his favour, and that subscriptions are being
raised to meet the expenses of his defence.
Walter C. Eddy, Esqr., late Master of Queen's
College, Demerara, died under very distressing
circumstances at the Island of Balliceau, (St. Ving
cent,) on the 19th August. Mr. Eddy, who, with his
wife, was on a visit to a Mr. Porter-went over to
Ballicean on a shooting excursion, and not return.
ing in due time, a number of gentlemen went to
search for him, but the body was not found until
three days after. He was lying on his back with
his hat off and his gun beside him. Dr. Newam,
one of the searching party; pronounced the cause
of his death to be sunstroke. He seemingly died
without a struggle.
BARBADOs.-Up to 10th instant, 54,402 hogsheads
of Sugar and 27,489 puncheons of Molasses, has
been shipped to the Mother Country.
Lieut.-Col. Sydney Farrell, R.E., Commanding
Royal Engineer at Barbados, died at his quarters,
after a short illness, on the 7th instant. His inter.
ment took place on the following day. The funeral
service was performed by His Lordship the Bishop
and the Rev. Moxley, Chaplain of the Forces.
Colonel Farrell was an officer of high profession-
al attainments and was for some years Professor of
the principal Military College in the United King-
dom.
The death is also announced of Lieut.-Colonel
Mahon, R.A., Commanding Royal Artillery in the
Windward and Leeward Islands.
The Directors of the Mutual Life Insurance So-
ciety of Barbados have refused to invest any fur-
ther sums on real Estate in the Island until thd
question of Consignees claims was settled. The
circumstance of some of the people having senj
their means to Trinidad for investment, incline them
to think somewhat favourably of the Consignee
claims. In consequence of certain important reve,,
lations made by recent processes of analysis, show-
ing to what an extent imported manures are adul
terated with foreign matter most deleterious and in,
jurious to crops, the Agricultural Society has taker
the matter seriously in hand, and charged itself
with the protection of local agricultural interests
by issuing a circular stating that the Society has
undertaken a systematic supervision over all arti.
cles imported as Feeding stuffs, or manures, am
subjecting samples of them to a rigid analytical test
in order to prevent the importation of injurious
matter, and with the especial view of introducing
healthier tone in general.
The local Military and Naval Medical authorities
bad declined acceding to the invitation to be placed
on the Board of Directors of the contageous disease
hospitals.
JAMAICA.-General Bayer Bazelais, the leader o
the Liberals for the Presidency of Hayti, had
arrived at Jamaica. Accounts from Hayti say|
that Solomon is making a good run for the Pres'
dency and that he will be the most formidable ca,
didate when the electoral college meets.
The telegraph around the Island would be opet
for public use in about two weeks.
One of the most interesting and satisfactory rd
ports we have read in Jamaica is the one just p
sented by the Directors of the Jamaica Street
Company-a purely native institution, and maj


aged most successfully by cre6les, proving by actu
experiment that success with economy in finance
are best secured by the exclusion of outsiders.

SINGULAR REASON NOR PURCHASING A NEwsPA
PER PLANT.-Mr. F. F. Comacho, Jr., has boug
the plant of the Watchman Newspaper and bh
suspended its publication for the present. F
some time past, the Watchman had been opening
its columns to anonymous contributors whose un
concealed object was to maintain a spiteful an
malicious attack upon certain Portuguese me
chants in Water Street, Mr. Comacho amongst t
number and as it would have been a waste of ti
and money to have entered an action for lib
against the publisher for the publication of the
articles, Mr. Comacho went to the Administrat
General, who represented the property, and a
ranged with him to buy the whole plant, which
has now been removed to the new owner's premise
in Water Street. The opinion of the leading Po
tuguese as to Mr. Comacho's purchase, is that
, has acted with admirable discretion in the matt
The clique whose ill-natured and malicious occi
pation has thus been brought to a sudden stop,
making arrangements to import a printing pla
for itself.-Demerara Royal Gazette, August 23.

Mr. .1. C. Ubthoff, second house surgeon at Guy's
lospitl, London, relates the following incident in
be Lancet :-" A well-dressed and lady-like female
ith a strong French accent asked to see me, and
equestedthat the interview might be a private one,
s the subject upon which she wished to speak was,
o use her own words, a delicate one.' Ayoung
oman, a relative or friend of hers, was entitled to
inherit some property if married; but being single
here was a prospect of her losing it. As no suit-
ble husband seemed likely to appear she was desi-
rous of finding some dying' man, of what position
it mattered not, to whom she might be formally
married and so obtain the property, while at the i
same time the link might be a slender one and soon
broken. This they had not been able to manage in
France, where she lived, and they had accordingly
sent over to a London hospital, where they hoped
for success. I was requested to find such a dying
man suitable for the object. If he were a widower,
nd had children they would make some provision
or the children. I need not dwell upon the an-
swer given to such a request. It would be curious
,to know if the same attempt has been made at
ther London hospitals."

THTE MYS'TE OUS FIRE ON THE STEA-
MER CAOTLEWOOD.
Mr. John L. Taylor, No. 60 Duane street, a large
importer of rags and wa+te paper, c *-I? at this
office yesterday and stated that, he was the con-
signee of the bales of waste paper on the steamer
Castlewood, one of which took fire while being
discharged from a box of matches which was found
1an .T.-,i,-a; the I : .:- us-d to cover the bale.
Mr. Tayior states that he has been reepivinr a large
nnuR3her of bales of the same brand of paper, and
has always found it to bk in good condition.
Messrs. A. Cohen & Co., of London, who shipped
the paper, are, he states, well known in the i", '.',,
and have been in business for fifty years. Mr.
Taylor claims that the -:' r must have been satu-
rated with oil during the voyage, but does not at-
tempt to i b*r.n bow the box of matches got into
the bale in the very r7i ",-n. they would be most
likely to set it on fire. On the other hand the officers
of the steamer deny that there was any oil stowed
in Lhe same r rr:,-.rfrna ;. with t -, 7',:"', and ar-
firm in their belief that the affair was a pi m -
tated scheme to fire the steamer for some purpose,
presumably to obtain insurance money on A omeo
goods on board the vessel.
At the r. q.,' of the FaniL: Minister, Sir Aus-
tin Layard, the Governor of the province of Erze-
roum has been 4 mi.i-ed,

F DunwN, Aug. 29.-Mr. Hone, a prominent Irish
amateur, takes a team of gentlemen cricketers from
Ireland to America to-day. Hone has written to
Daft, proposing that the Irish gentlemen meet the
English players either in Philadelphia or New York
for a match.
GENEVA, Aug. 29.-St. Gothard's tunnel is ra-
pidly approaching .-or,:.-i.-.n. Four thousand men
are engaged upon it, and fiesh hands taken on daily.
Eleven hundred and tWrty-five metres remain to
tunnel. It will probably beF, a k-d by the end of
the year. Mont Benere branch will be commenced
October 1st, and its .,--..: *n is expected simul-
taneously with the main line. .
Admiral Popoff, who is engaged in the construc-
tion of a steamer of novel design, which is expected
to attain a speed of 30 knots, has had 75,000 rou-
bles allowed to him for perfecting his designs.
Did ever an English designer receive such assis-
tance from our Admiralty PF
Lieutenant Commander H. H. Goringe, United
States Navy, left New York on 25th for Alexan-
dria, Egypt, and constructions for the transporta-
tion of Cleopatra's Needle will soon follow. He
expects to return with the needle by Jany. 1, 1880.
He will not tow the Lek. as was done by Eng.
lish engineers, but ship it on a steamer as freight.
It is made cause of complaint that the young
TurkJs sent to the United 5 :.r;. to be educated, in
order that they may return to the East, and labor
to advance the cause of Cii. ni'y, endeavor to
secure a medical c.1 ':,i., and when they go home
set up in the profitable practice of the healing art.
Messrs. Peel and Read, two members of the Im-
perial Parliament are coming to America to inquire
as to the amount of live stock and meat which the
U.-*:'. States and Canada can export during the
next four years, and the cost at which animal food
can be produced.

WILDJBEASTS AND THE SMELL OF
BLOOD.
An old tamer of wild beasts says : "As for the
smell of blood maddening the-, T know there is a
popular notion to that effect, but it is not true. I
have had occasion enough to know when it was my
blood they smelt. Lions and tigers raised in capti-
vity are more dangerous than those who are well
broken when taken wild, full grown. When a cub
born in a cage grows up, he will become impudent,
saucy, aggressive, and is too familiar with men to
be easily cowed. But the wild beast never forgets
when he has once been well whipped, and though his
instincts will sti I prompt to attack. he will have his
doubts about the result of his getting into a fight.
You may handle a young lion for years, and it will
be harmless as a N. .tu *.!:.u 3? until suddenly,
without any apparent reason, all its f.-r,- rS' will be


That. is a clever personal stery about Mohammed
Ali and the camels; and though it will be familiar to
many, they will scarcely he sorry to be reminded of
it. A Persian died. :. -v'.>: seventeen camels tobe
divided among his three sons in the following pro-
portions: The eldest to have half, the second a
third, and the youngest a ninth. Of course, camels
can't be dri'le.1 into fractions ; so, in despair, the
brothers submitted their trc'ui'y to Mohammed
All. Nothing easier," said the wise All. "PI'il
lend you another camel to make eighteen; and now
divide them yourselves." The consequence was,
each brother got from one-eighth to one-half of a
camel more than he was entitled to, and All received
his camel back again; the eldest brother getting
nine camels, the second, six, and the third, two.

GEMS FROM DICKENS.
"For a moment the closed eyelids trembled and the
faintest shadow oi a smile was seen. Thus, clinging
to that light spar within her arms, the mother drifted
out upon the dark and unknown sea that rolls round
all the wcrlM."-Dombey Son, vol. 1, chap. 1. 1


'T' It's very near the sea. I hear the waves' The
light about the heap is shining on me as I go!' The
old, old fashion that came in with our last garments,
and will last unchanged until our race has run its
course, and the wide firmament is rolled up like a
scroll. Oh! thank God for that older fashion yet, of
immortality! And look upon us, angels ot young
children, when the swift river bears us to the ocean."
-Ibid, chap. 16.
"In this round world of many circles within circles,
do we make aweary journey from the high grade to the
low to find at last that they lie very close together!

Old PranecN was a wag, and once, when early
peas were on the table, he emptied the contents o i
hbs snuff-box over them, "Francis,Francis they
all exclaimed, "what are you about?"-"I like
them that way," was the answer. He, of course,
had the dish to himself, and, when he had oonclud.*
ed, exclaimed, You thought it was snuff, did you ?
Nothing of the kind. The fact is, I have a prefer-
ence for black pepper with my peas."
If a man will only start with a fixed and honor-
able purpose in life, and persistently attempt to
carry it out to the best of his ability, undismayed
by failure or delay, the time may be long in com-
ing, but it will, when that purpose will beachieved.

RE LIA LE
GOODS.


G REAT progress has been made within a few
years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-
etnaliles, Fish and .'is:., in tin., and in conse-
que!nce the consumption has largely increased.
t s yet, however, canned goods are not generally
thought to be "fresh," and some brands are not,
perhaps, entitled to be so considered. Those
picked 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 ,o. ranteed to he of superior quality,
and dealers are authorised to refund the purchase
price in any case where co.sumers have cause
for dissatisfaction. It is, therefore, to the in-
terest of both dealers and consumers to use
TiHURBFR'S BRANDS.
