Some happy talent and some fortunate opportu-
nity may form the two sides of the ladder on which
uome men mount, but the rounds of that ladder
must be made of stuff to stand wear and tear; and
there is no substitute for thorough-going, ardent,
and sincere earnestness. Never put one hand to
anything on which you can throw your whole self,
never affect depreciation of your work, whatever
it is.

Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honor-
able House of Assembly;
I thank you, on Her Majesty's behalf,
for the supplies you have voted for the
Public Service.-I have every reason to be-
lieve that those supplies will suffice to
meet all Public Requirements.-I trust that
henceforth our Revenue may improve from
year to year :-that the great commercial
depression which has so long weighed down
the commercial and manufacturing classes in
the United States of America may now be
said to have passed away; and that with the
return of prosperity in the great seaboard
Towns we may again as of old find in them
advantageous markets for our produce and
thus be able without any increase of taxa-
tion to keep our finances in a flourishing
condition.
Mr. President and Honorable Gentlemen of the
Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honorable
House of Assembly ;
I hope that during the short recess
which must intervene before you meet. toge-
ther again, you will be able to devote some
time and attention to the consideration of
the subjects which will be brought before
you during the Autumn Session-and that


PROROGATION OF THE
oltonial Parliameset.

SPEECH OF HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOV-
ERNOR ON THE OCCASION.

At 1-30 p.m., yesterday, His Excellency Major.
General SIR R. M. LAFFAN, K.C.M.G., accompa-
nied by his Aide-de-Camp and Captain Grieve,
46th Regt., came down tu the Public Buildings for
the purpose of Proroguing the Colonial Parliament,
and was there received by Colonel Morrison, C.
R.E., and a large number of officers, besides many
of our principal inhabitants.
A Guard of Honor from the 1-19th (P. W. 0.)
Regiment, under command of Captain Jameson and
Lieutenants Davis and Handcock, the latter gen-
tlemen bearing the Queen's colour, was in attend-
ance and presented arms as His Excellency reach-
ed the entrance-the Band of the Regiment play-
ing the National Anthem.
His Excellency immediately proceeded to the
Council Chamber, where were assembled the Presi-
dent and Members of Her Majesty's Council.
Amongst the many who were present we noticed
-Mrs. Rees, Col. and Mrs. Morrison, Dr. and Mrs.
O'Leary, Col. Gordon, R. E., Assistant Commissary
General and Mrs. Lilley, Asst. Comy. Gen. and
Mrs. Randall, Mrs. C. C. Keane, Dr. and Mrs. P.
B. Tucker, Mrs. Butterfield and Miss Butterfield,
Col. Bennett, 46th Regt., Capt. and Mrs. Pilleau,
Major Hereford, 1-19th Regt., Major John, 46th
Regt., Captain Brain, Brigade Major, Revd. Mark
James, Revd. Mr Hardy and Dr. Rees.
The Provost Marshal General having been direct-
ed to request the attendance of the Honorable
House of Assembly, the Members of that Honor-
able House, headed by their Speaker-the Honor-
able S. S. Ingham-were soon assembled, and His
Excellency delivered the following
SPEECH:
_Mr. President and Honorable Gentlemen of the,
Legislative Council;
SMr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the HTonorable
House of Assembly;
It would have given me great pleasure
if, in proroguing Parliament on this occa-
sion, it had been in my power to have
congratulated you upon having brought to
a satisfactory conclusion all the Parliamen-
tary work of the year; and upon having,
therefore, before you the pleasant prospect
of enjoying the well-earned relaxation of a
long Parliamentary Recess.
But I regret to say that I am unable
to hold out to you so pleasing a perspec-
tive. The present prorogation can only be
for a brief period,-and I shall be com-
pelled, at an early date, to call you again
together for an Autumn session, to take
up once more some important legislative
measures, with which you have been un-
able to deal in a satisfactory manner dur-
ing the session which has now reached its
close.
There is one very important subject
which must be dealt with by Legislative
enactment before the end of the present
year-and yet which could not have been
thus dealt with during the present Session
even had it been prolonged. The Act No.
3 of the year 1872 for aiding in the main-
tenance of Common Schools expires on the
31st December next-and it is therefore of
the greatest importance to the progress of
Public Education that some new legisla-
tive measure dealing with that subject
should have been passed and should have
come into operation prior to that date,
The Bill, however, introduced by the At-
torney General, for making better provision
for the maintenance of Common Schools,
was passed by the House of Assembly with
modifications and additions which appeared
open to well-founded objections, and which
failed to meet with the assent of the Le-
gislative Council-and thus this very im-
portant measure was lost,-and it became
impossible to legislate on the subject dur-
ing the present session as the House of
Assembly is precluded by its rules from
considering again, during the same Session,
any subject upon which it has once arrived
at a decision.
There remains, therefore, no other al-
ternative than a Prorogation and an Au-
tumn Session-in order to give to both
Houses an opportunity of reconsidering this
important question and arriving at a com-
mon understanding as to the best mode
of dealing with it.
I shall takb the earliest opportunity
which may be allowed me by the pro-
ceedings of the Court of General Assize
to bring you together once more,-and the
Attorney General will then introduce a new
Bill for making better provision for the
maintenance of Common Schools, and I
trust you will be able to pass a School
Act which will place the question of Public
Education in these Islands on a satisfactory
basis.


ade and the chief police station, a gunpowder mag-
azine and four petroleum stores were simultaneously
set on fire. The whole city was wrapped in a thick,
black cloud of smoke, and every now and then the
people were terrified by a series of detonations and
loud explosions. The entire garrison and the fire-
men of the suburbs and many of the inhabitants la-
bored indefatigably to extinguish the fire, but,
despite their efforts, it continued until morning of
the second day after it broke out. The loss was
enormous. Many lives were lost, including those
of several children.

RUSSIA CHECKED.
LONDON, Sept. 23.-Official intelligence has been
received here, and confirmed from two authentic
sources by the way of Persia, that the Russian ad-
vanced column has been defeated by the Turcomans
at Geok Tepe, with the loss of 700 killed, and that
the Russians are falling back on Bearma. The
movements of the column before the reported en-
counter at Geok Tepe had already been known at
St. Petersburg by means of an official telegram from
General Lomakin, commanding the expedition. It
states that the advanced detachment of the expe-
dition against the Teke-Turcomans passed the Ko-
pet-Dagh on the 4th inst. At Bashi and Beurma
no Turcomans were encountered, and only fifty Ki-
bitkas remained at Artchman, the rest of the popu-
lation having decamped. The Russian vanguard
passed the night of the 6th inst. at Gurun, the main
body remaining at Artchman. "It is rumoured,"
adds the telegram, that the Tekes are assembling
at Geok-Tepe to resist the advance of the expedi-
tion. The health of the troops is satisfactory." A
late despatch from London says that the Viceroy
of India confirms the report of the defeat.

RUSSIA AND CHINA.-The Chinese Ambassador
ani suite have left St. Petersburg for Livadia to
visit the Czar and to exchange ratifications of the
treaty between Russia and China, by which the lat-
ter acquires Kuldja. The Ambassador will then
return to China, leaving a permanent mission at
St. Petersburg under one of his present staff.


you will thus be better able to arrive at a
mutual understanding and to agree in pass-
ing measures dealing in a satisfactory man-
ner with those subjects which have so ma-
terial an influence on the welfare and pros-
perity of this community.

Late from the United States, Europe,
&c.
The Mail Steamer Canima, Captain Liddicoat,
arrived at her wharf in this Town at 8 a.m. yester-
day.
She left New York at 3 p.m. on Thursday the
25th. Has experienced much heavy weather dur-
ing the passage.
We are indebted to Captain Liddicoat, Mr. Pur-
ser Gale, 2nd Officer Mr. Astwood, J. F. Burrows,
Esqr., M. C. P., A Lebreckt, T. J. Outerbridge and
W. T. Bradford, Esquires, for New York papers
up to the evening of the 25th.
THE FEVER AT MEMPHIS.-On the morning of
the 22th, the report for the previous day, was ten
new cases, and eight deaths. At noon of the 25th
three new cases, 1 death.
SNow IN CANADA.-Two inches ot snow fell at
Mount Louis, Quebec, on 25th.
The Board of Trade has suspended for six months
the certificate of the captain of the Canard steamer
Brest, which recently ran ashore.
RACING IN ENGLAND.-LONDON, Sept.' 24.-The
race for the Great Eastern Railway Handicap came
off to-day at the Newmarket first October meeting
and was won by Prince Soltykoff's three-year-old
bay filly Lucetta. The second place was secured
by Prince Batthyany's four-year-old bay colt Ty-
phoon, and Lord Hastings' four-year-old chestnut
colt Master Kildare came in third.

THE REVOLT IN AFGHANISTAN.
The Commander of the Mutineers Executed.-LoN-
DON, Sept. 22.-A Calcutta dispatch says: "The
Government is not satisfied regarding the Ameer's
conduct. The Ameer has caused the execution of
the commander of the mutineers."
Public opinion among all classes is strong against
the Ameer for not protecting the lives of the Mem-
bers of the British Embassy, and he has forfeited
forever the respect of his subjects.
LONDON, Septr. 23.--A dispatch from Shutur.i-
Gardan says: A body of Mongols waylaid a re-
turning convoy near this place, killed nine sepoys,
and 16 muleteers, and carried off 84 mules."

LONDON, Sept. 22.-A. dispatch from Calcutta
says : "The reports from Cashmere are still very
gloomy. All European eye-witnesses agree that
great corruption prevails among the authorities.
The Maharajah and his Ministers show a want of
energy in relieving the distress of the people. A
ghastly story has been going the rounds, that two
boat-loads of famine-stricken people were taken
out into the lake and drowned. The story has
been contradicted, apparently on the authority of
the Durbar, but it obtained general credence among
the people and visitors in the valley."

THE TERMS OF PEACE IN ZULU-LAND
No Danger of Further Hostilities-The Peace Agree-
ment Signed by the Chiefs-Many Conquered
Tribes Restored to their Rights.
LONDON, Sept. 22.-A dispatch from Cape Town,
dated Sept. 2, says: "King Cetywayo will come
here immediately to await the orders of the Home
Government. His capture has had a quieting ef-
fect among the natives, and the danger of a rupture
with the Pondos has passed away. A final assem-
bly of the great chiefs, counselors, and people of
Zulu-land was to bo held at Ulundi to-day, when
the terms of peace were to be proclaimed, and each
of the chiefs selected to rule over the territories was
to sign an agreement. According to this agreement
the chief undertakes to forego the importing of arms
from any quarter whatsoever, and the importation
of merchandise from the sea coast is also forbidden.
The making of war and the succession to a chieftain-
ship will be subject to the approval of the British
Government. When British subjects are accused
of crimes, trial and sentence will depend on the
Resident's approval. The alienation of the land
will be absolutely forbidden In all respects these
chiefs will be sovereigns, each in his own territory.
A chief will not be compelled to admit missionaries,
and the prohibition of the alienation of land will
not be relaxed in favor of grants to missionaries.
The British Residents will be instructed to advise
the chiefs, but to exercise no authority over them.
If the chiefs disregard the terms of agreement, the
Residents will report their conduct, but will have
no power to give orders. The course of the White
Umvoloosi River from Kambula Mountain to the
sea will divide the Northern from the Southern
Residency divisions. Many of the chiefs receiving
territories are representatives of ancient tribes who
were subjugated by the Zulus, and they rejoice at
the recovery of their independence."

A TERRIBLE FIRE IN RUSSIA.
A Large Portion of Kiev Destroyed-The Loss of
Life and Property Very Great.
ODESSA, Sept. 22.--The Vfestnik (newspaper) pub-
lishes a letter from Kiev describing the terrible fire
which occurred in that city on the 3rd inst. While
a furious storm was raging the fire broke out in
seven different places. The offices of the Fire Brig-


which is to take place, this evening, at Mr. Hous-
ton's School Room, Warwick. The Band of the
1-19th Regiment, by kind permission of Major
Hereford, will be in attendance.
We understand there will be on the School Ground
an exhibition of a Black Bear, an American Eagle,
a Macaw, a Monkey, &c.

ROWING RAcE.-Bermuda vs. Warwick. A race
will be rowed over the usual course in this harbour
on Thursday afternoon next, between two crews of
the above clubs.
The Race will be rowed in the two match boats
owned by the Bermuda Rowing Club.

THE 97TR REGIMENT.-It was rumored in Hali-
fax on the 21st instant, that the 97th Regiment
would not come to Bermuda.

g From 1st October to 31st March the Inland
Mails will be despatched from the Post Offices at 3
p.m. instead of 4 p.m.

Captain Young, of the T. IZ. A. Pitt, will please
accept our thanks for a file of Liverpool, N.S., pa-
pers of the 12th instant.

To CORRESPONDENTS.--" Beginner" in our next.

Col. William Thomas Betts, formerly of the 26th
and 88th Regt., died on 2nd Sept. at Hornsey, Lon-
don, aged 61 years. He entered the army in 1835
and served with the 26th in most of the important
actions of the 1st Chinese Wars. Col. Betts served
with the 26th in Bermuda, and married a Bermuda
lady.

DIED, in this Town on the 27th instant, MARY
ANN, the beloved wife of Mr. William H. Been, aged
46; leaving a mother, 3 sisters, 2 brothers and many
other relatives and friends to mourn their sad loss,
Sjie was much respected by all who knew her.
f


THE VERY LATEST INTELLIGENCE.
Advancing on Cabul.-A despatch from Sim
states that General Baker, commanding a briga
of infantry, would probably attack Kushi, on t
route from Kobat to Cabul, Sept. 24. Resistan
was expected. The force under General Sir Fre
erick Roberts, consisting of three brigades, in a
6,500 men, is now completely supplied with tran
portation and ready to move on Cabul by the Loga
Valley. The advance of the main body under
General Bright, numbering 6,600 men, will corn
mence immediately. Sir Frederick Roberts wi
be supported by a reserve force of some 4,000, un
der Generals Gordon and Gough, holding the Ku
ram Valley and maintaining the communication
between the advancing forces and Northwester
India. The Standard's Simla correspondent re
ports that the lines of communication in the Khu
rum and Khyber Valleys are being strengthen
by considerable reinforcements, and various posts
are being fortified in view of the possibility of loca
troubles,

THE DOMINION EXHIBITION.
Its Formal Opening by the Governor General and the
Princess Louise.
OTTAWA, Sept. 24.-The Dominion Exhibition
was formally opened to-day by His Excellency the
Governor General and the Princess Louise. There
were 20,000 people present: and as their Excellen-
cies drove on to the ground the vast multitude
cheered vociferously. The stand in the centre of
the horse ring had been neatly decorated for the
occasion, and was filled with a select party of ladies
and gentlemen. Among the latter were the Gov-
ernors of the States of Maine, Ohio and Vermont,
with their respective staffs, who were clad in gor.
geous uniforms. Her Royal Highness wore a cos-
tume of maroon velvet, with a hat to match her
dress. An address from the association was pre,
sented, to which His Excellency made a brief reply
after which he formally declared the Exhibition
open. A large number of public school children
were on the grand stand, and sang a song of wel-
come, and after a brief interval they sung one verse
of the Nathional Anthem. His Excellency then
called for three cheers, which was heartily respond-
ed to. Some one proposed three cheers for Her
Royal Highness Princess Louise, and they were
given with an emphasis that must have been high-
ly pleasing to Her Royal Highness, who gracefully
bowed her acknowledgment. They then re-enter-
ed their carriages and visited the main hall, follow-
ed by an immense crowd to the door, which was
closed immediately on their entrance. They also
visited Manitoba Hall, Horticultural Hall and
other portions of the grounds. It is understood
they expressed themselves well pleased with all they
saw.

The following definitions from the Rev. J. B.
Harbord's Glossary jof Navigation" will enable
those who have not had much chance of study to
understand the extract from "the Sanitarian"
which we gave in our impression of Sept. 23rd:-
"Heavenly bodies are said to be in conjunction
when they have the same longitude, and are there-
fore seen in the same part of the heavens. In con-
tradistinction to this when they have a difference
of longitude of 1800 and are therefore seen in dia-
metrically opposite parts of the heavens, they are
said to be in opposition. For example:-The
moon is in conjunction with the sun at new moon,
in opposition at full moon."
The Ellipse is a figure of great importance to
the Student. Its form in a general sense, is oval.
Its exact form is given by this property: Within
it are two points called foci, such that the sum of
the distances of any point in the circumference to
them is constant. Setting aside the reciprocal at-
traction of the earth on the sun, and the purturba.
tions caused by the attractions of the other bodies
of the system, the earth revolves in an ellipse round
the sun in one of the foci. And this is the same
for the orbits of the other planets."
Every Planet revolves in an ellipse round the
sun situated in one of the foci. That point in its
orbit farthest from the sun is called Aphelion (apo
away from Helios, the sun) that nearest to the sun
the Perihelion.
The "Sanitarian tells us that in 1880 the four
great Planets, 'Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Nep-
tune are to be in conjunction at Perihelion. So
far well-but what grounds does this fact give for
the prediction of dire and dreadful disturbances of
the atmosphere of this Planet and the other fearful
prognostications. We shall be greatly obliged if
those who have given themselves to the study of these
matters would answer this question. To do so it
would be necessary to discover whether there has ever
such a conjunction happened within the historical
period and if so does history tell us of any great
disturbances at the time, such as th6se predicted for
next year. If no such historical evidence can be pro-
duced upon what grounds can the theory be found-
ed that from 1880 to 1885 there is to be a general
and prolonged period of pestilence and woe ? There
is no doubt an Astrology of modern days but it is
not a foundationless nonsense, but scientific predic.
tion upon the premises of historical experience, and
nothing but this can now deserve, or will have any
credit.

We have been requested, by the Ladies of
the Presbyterian Church, Warwick, to direct at-
tention to the Advertisement in another column of
this issue to the intended Ice Cream Festival.

TIIE CABUL DISASTER.
TI MASSACR1Ss AND TROUBLES Op 1841-42-A GREAT
LESSON DiSKEGARDED.
[Firom the New York Herald, P. ..iembvir 11.]
It ia hardly possible as yet fully to estimate the
importance of the events which have taken place in
Afghanistan. The massacre of Major Cavagnari and
his associates, together with the small body of chosen
tnoops.which accompanied the mission, will take its
place< as one of the great tragedies of history. Such
an event is well fitted to revive the horrible scenes of
1857, when English blood was spilled like water and
Cawnpore and Lucknow were a very shambles. It
recalls arain and presents in vivid and striking resem-
blance the sad scenes which were witnessed in the
sIame legion toward the close of 1841 and the com-
mencement of 1842. The butchery of Cavagnari and
his associates is but a repetition of the massacre of
Sir Alexander Burnes and of Sir William Macnagh-
ten. So striking is the resemblance between the
events which cast a gloom over the winter of 1841-2,
and so o.,int t is the bearing which they have upon
the present situation that it seems a duty to reproduce
them. Then, as now, it is necessary to bear in mind,
the Anglo-Tndian government had successfully waged
a war a. ,,-t the ruler of Afghanistan, and had con-
cluded a peace which, it was hoped, might be lasting.
Then, as now, the actual occupant of the throne of
Cabul owed his position to the generosity of the con-
querors of his country. Then, as now, the Afghan
was trusted, and then, as now, the Afghans proved
treach erous.
DOST MOIIAMMED.-nla 1888 the English declared
war against Afghanistan. On the 1st of October, 1838,
Lord Auckland issued an order, dated from Simla, in
which he commanded the assemblage of a British force
for service across the Indus, and explained also the
motives of his policy :--" Dost Mohammed," ho said,
had made a sudden and unprovoked attack on our
ancient ally Runjeet Sing. He had also, when the
Persian army was besieging Herat, given undis-
guised support to the designs of Persia. Great Brit-
ain regarded this advance of Persian arms in Afghan-
istan as an act of hostility toward herself. The Gov-
ernor General had, therefore, resolved to support the
"claims of Shah Sorjah-ool-Mook, whose dominions
had been usurped by the existing rulers of Cabul, and
who had found an asylum in British territory." Mr.
(afterward Sir) W. McNaughten, secretary to the gov-
ernment of India, was appointed to be envoy and
Minister at the Court of Shah Sorjah, and Sir Alex-
ander (formerly mentioned) was withdrawn from the
Court of Dost Mohammed and ordered to act under
the direction of MacNaghten. Some thirty thousand
men were soon on their march from different parts of
India in the direction of Candahar, Cabul and Herat,
and these were to be joined by forty-five thousand men
furnished by ,injeL-t Sing. Dost Mohammed was
compelled to give way. After a bold, stubborn, and
sometimes most brilliant resistance the invading forces
approached Cabul. Dost Nohammed, at the head of
a few horsemen, abandoned his capital and fled across
the Indus. Shah Sorjah entered Cabul amid but few
demonstrations ot delight on the part of the people,
and, sustained by foreign bayonets, remounted the
throne of his ancestors. Soon after, believing that no
danger was to be apprehended, the Anglo-Indian army
withdrew, leaving behind only some eight thousand
men and the hirelings of the Shah. It seemed, for
the time, as if the work were done, and as if Shah
Sorjah were as safe on his throne as the Queen of
England herself.
THE .MASSACRE OF BURNS AND MACNAGIITEN.-It
was not long before Dost Mohammed made his appear-
ance in the territory of his former dominions. His
former subjects in crowds flocked to his standard.. In
several engagements he encountered the combined
forces of the Shah and of his Bi '-, idly. In the fa-
imonus battle of Purwandurrah he fought like a hero
and literally covered himself with glory. None were
more willing to give him praise than the British offi-
.cers themselves. It was made abundantly apparent
"Qn this battlefield that the beloved of the army and of
the people was not Shah Sorjah but Dost Mohammed.
On the evening after the brilliant exploit of that day
he rode up to the headquarters of Sir W. MacNaghten,
and meeting the envoy, who was returning from his
,evening ride, he tendered him his swor d surren-
dered himself a prisoner. His sword was generously
rdtitrned to him, and he was received and treated with
all honor. Dost Mohammed had justly concluded that,
although it might not be impossible to prolong the
.-struggle, the issue was not doubtful, and must be
against him. In a few days he was sent off under
escort to India, where a residence and a revenue were
provided for him. The withdrawal of Dost Mohanm-
rmed did not establish peace or secure the reign of
Shah Sorjah. On November 2, 1841, an insurrection
broke out in Cabul. Burnes, it appeared, lived in the
city; Macnaghten and Major General Elphinstone
were in cantonments at some little distance. Barnes'
rfeai i(.- 'was surrounded. He could not believe that
he had become the object of Afghan hatred. He at-
tempted to address them, reminding them that he was
their: ok0 friend. This seemed to arouse rather than
calfn them. It was their belief that he had betrayed
them.
AN AFGHAN Mon.-The firy of the mob became
. uncontroHable, and Burnes, his brother and all those
who were witli him were cut to pieces. The citadel
was attacked. Shah Sorjah was made prisoner in his
own castle.- The encampments were attacked, and the
Bi'itish were compelled to abandon their forts, in
which were stored their provisions. In such circunm-
,stances resistance implied starvation. The situation
was rendered more alarming by the incapacity of the
c' ommanders. Gen. Elphinstone was old, infirm and
broken in mind and body. Sir W. Maenaghten
seems ,to have become stupefied by the events which


were taking place around him. A new figure hap-
pened upon the scene. It was Akbar Khan, the favor-
ite son of Dost Mohammed. Placing himself at the
head of the insurgents, he offered to treat with the
British on the terms of unconditional surrender. Mac'-
n.".hton objected; and finally it was agreed that the
. British troops should quit Afghanistan at once; that
Dost Mohammed and his family should be sent back;
that Shah Soijah should be allowed to take himself off
o India or where lie would, and that some British
] '..-t'; should be left in Cabul as pledges for the
fulfilment of the conditions. In the meantime, and
before any portion of this treaty had been carried into
effect, another catastrophe had happened. In terms
of an appointment Macnaghten went out to the banks
o a neighboring river to meet Akbar Khan. They
were to be thinly attended. Macnaghten had with
him three officers and a small escort. Akbar had a
,large following of friends and retainers. It was cvi-
S'dient that mischief was intended. Almost immediate-
ly an altercation ensued. High words were used, and
at,,a given signal the British envoy and his attendants
,w.eCe seized from behind. There was a hand-to-hand
:." Jl.- between Macnaghten and Akbar, when the
latter, snatching from his belt a pistol, shot the envoy
through ,the body. The pistol by which Macnaghten
lost his life as, strange to say, one of a pair which
the, envoy had some time before presented to the
assassin. Of the three officers who were with the
envov one was killed on the spot; the two others es-
caped on Afghan horses. Macnaghten's mutilated
bodyv was afterwards paraded through the streets.
TiHE ETREAT THROUGH TiHE PASSEs.-On the 1st of
January, 1842, the British agreed to evacuate the
country. Oi .?i,, ai v 5 they marched out, 4,500
combatants and 12,00) camp followers. The Kurd-
Cabul Thass became the grave of nearly the whole of
tiat ,army. A few only escaped slaughter, and o!
thlse' few only one man-Dr. Brydon-reached Jeila-
labad to tell the horrid tale. One manou o out some
sixteen thousand! In the whole range of history
there is no similar picture to be found, none more
thrilUng with the suggestion of an awful catastrophe.
The. subsequent rescue of the women and children has
hbi'en told by Lady Sale, and the story has been ifre-


quently repented during the late Afghan war. It
need only be added that Dost Mohammed soon after-
ward returned to C(abul, when, by t1h choice of the
,-'O'at W'1joritv ot the people, he was aitin placed
upon the throne. Such is the history of England's
first experience in Afghanistan. It is a story of min-
uled folly, honor and glory. The points ot resem-
blance between the murder of Purnes and Macnagh-
ten and the murder of Cavagnari and his associates
are striking. It is clear that the present disaster
might have been avoided if the lesson of the past had
been heeded. Cavagnari ought to have been better
supported or not been there at all.

ANOTHER SEA SERPENT.
Captain J. F. Cox, of the ship Privateer, arrived
with his vessel in this port from London on Monday.
He tells a remarkable story of a sea serpent which
he says he encountered during his voyage. On Aug.
5, he says, the weather was fine and clear, and the
ship was making good speed under a dazzling sun, a
hundred miles from Brest, off the coast of France.
About five o'clock in the afternoon as he was walk-
ing the quarter deck looking to windward, he saw
something black slowly lift itself twenty feet above
the sea. To his profound amazement he saw that it
was fully five feet in diameter and of indefinite length
as a portion of the body was necessarily in the water.
The Captain knew that there could be no delusion,
for it was not more than three hundred yards away,
and its snaky contortions caused a commotion in the
water as if a school of whales were fighting. But
the Captain felt no fear until the immense mass be-
gan moving toward the ship. Just at this moment
the serpent lifted its head aloft, and, with fascinating
grace, swung its neck around for a moment over the
white caps and suddenly, with a loud splash, disap-
peared. It immediately arose again, poised its vul-
ture-like head over the waves a moment, then went
down into the white foam. This remarkable per-
formance was repeated three times, at intervals of
ten .-., ..- Then the .:..-:ut v., -. completely
around and dashed away from the ship. In conclu-
sion the captain says that he has seen many kinds of
fish and sea monsters, but never anything that could
be called a sea serpent. In this instance he says he
not only saw the outlines of the serpent, but careful-
ly noted its great melancholy eyes. Its color was of,
a deep black and its shape like that of an eel.-New
York Herald, Sept. 10.

THE LARGEST TREE IN THE WORLD. -There is
at present on exhibition in New York a section
of an immense tree which has been brought from
California. The New York Herald says:-" This
wonderful specimen of nature's handiwork was
discovered in 1874. It was growing in a grove
near Tule River, Tulare county, California about
75 miles from Visalia, Its top had been broken
off, probably at some remote period, and when
discovered it was still 240 feet high. The body
of the tree where it was broken was 12 teet in dia-
meter and had two limbs measutiing respectively
9 feet and 10 feet in diameter. The trunk mea-
sures below 111 feet. This ancient monarch of the
forest is called "Old Moses," after a mountain
near which it stood. It is supposed to be 4,840
years old and it is the largest tree that has ever
been discovered. The section on exhibition is 75
feet in circumference, and 25 feet across. It is
capable of holding 150 people in its interior. The
interior, as it is now fitted up, is arranged like a
drawing room. A carpet has been laid down;
there is a piano, sofa, tables and chairs with scenes
from California hung around, and people move
about quite freely.

CHINESE PRovERBs.-Many of the Chinese pro-
verbs have their counterparts in English; the dif-
ference of expression, however, being in many
cases characteristic. Thus: "Throw a sprat to
catch a Whale," is rendered, Throw a brick to
allure a gem." Not to cry stinking fish" is ren-
dered in Chinese, The melonseller declares his
melons sweet." "Take care of the pence and th'e
pounds will take care of themselves," becomes,
Count cash as though they were gold,"-cash
being a coin of the smallest denomination. Again.
"A rolling stone gathers no moss," is translated,
"The swallow plastering its nest is labor lost"-
this being a very happy allusion to the migratory
habits of that bird. "Preparing is preventing," an
old English expression, has its counterpart in "Get
the coffin ready and the man won't die;" while
"Too many cooks will spoil the broth" is rendered
by the curious expression "Seven hands and eight
feet." "There is a black sheep in every flock," be-
comes, Crows are black all the world over."
And the oft-quoted saying of Robbing Peter to
pay Paul" assumes the form, "To pull down the
western wall to repair the eastern." Speaking ot
the scarcity of good men, the Chinese say : "There
are two good men; one of them is dead, the other
unborn."- Chambers's Jaurnal.

CA3NAED GOODS.
S REAT progress has been made within a few
years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-
getalbles, Fish and ', -'*t-. 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 Hlermetically Sealed
at the sources of supply, when they are in the
best possible condition, by a process which pre-
serves the much-to-be-de.ired 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. Ali goods bearing our
name are guaranteed to he of superior quality,
and dealers are authorised to refund the purchase
price in any case where consumers have cause
