There is a touching little story in the Apocrypha
about a young man and woman who were just
married and ready to start together on their untried
career, and this was heir first cry to Heaven, when
the wedding guests had gone, and they were left
alone in their chamber, "Mercifully ordain that we
may grow aged together." If all young married
folk would utter such a prayer, and strive to render
its fulfilment possible, would not life be sweet for
ART CRITICISM.-Flasher having had his portrait
painted for the Academy, asked the opinion of his
friend Dabbs, a retired house-painter.-Dabbs:
" Well, it's like you ; but if you paid twenty-five
pounds for it, you've been done. Why, there ain't
half a pound of paint on the whole thing."

I like good Newspaper Correspondence; spicy,
pointed, interesting, and sensible : employing pow-
ers of wit, sarcasm, and description; enlightening
the less learned, and directing the attention of the
whole people, to some public gain. Newspaper
Correspondence should be solely for the public good,
free from personal allusions, in factfit should con-
cern principles, and material, acquiring personal
association, when moral, and intellectual defects,"
are to be considered, and then the defects, as they
exist in characters, and not the characters in whom
they exist, should be dealt with.
So maintained, Newspaper Correspondence is be-
neficial: often the evidence of the strongest feeling
of the times, it is a safety valve, and as often effects
the relief from, and even removal of, incipient pub-
lic grievances, before they press anywhere, so as to
I consider that the privileges of Newspaper Cor-
respondence are encroached upon, when any writer,
addresses a public exhortation, to private owners
of lands needed by the public, and submit that all
such gratuitous advice should be accompanied by
the supplemental offer, to freely contribute at once
the exact money difference in dispute : the public
always being careful to perpetuate the fame, of the
adjusting patriot, whenever they accept of such

Ti: l \ ;D ISLAND ROYAL REGATTA.
A brief notice of which appeared in our last issue
was held as advertised on Friday, Octr. 10th, and
was one of the most successful aquatic gatherings
ever witnessed in these islands. The threatening
appearances of the previous evening had caused
some anxiety to the Committee and the promoters
of the Regatta, but this was dispelled when on the
morning of 10th, all signs of stormy weather had
disappeared, and a nice sailing breeze from N. N. W.
gave promise of an exciting race between the sail-
ing boats, at the same time that a smooth sea favour-
ed the various pulling matches. At 11 a.m., the
Dockyard Bell rang the workpeople oat of the
yard, and soon after the Camber was alive with
boats of all descriptions, from the heavy and cum-
bersome 14-oared launch to the graceful and deli-
cate pair-oared outrigged skiff, some of which,
built on purpose for the occasion, seemed well
qualified. to contest for the Cup offered for this
especial description of boat. The Terror moored
inside the Camber, dressed with Flags, as also the
Committee vessel, -moored outside, gave an additi-
onal appearance of gaiety to the scene. The
Breakwater, recently much improved by the plant-
ing of young trees, providing of seats, &c., formed
a very spacious and agreeable promenade, where
visitors were enlivened by the strains of the Band
of the Royal M marines from Commissioner's House.
'Shortly before noon, the Vixen arrived from St.
George's bringing guests, and soon after the steam
launch from Hamilton and steam pinnace from
Ducking Stool, bringing His Excellency the Gov-
ernor Lady and Miss Laffan and party.
With customary nautical punctuality at noon
precisely, the 1st Race started, and the others fol-
lowed at tolerably regular intervals.

With a nice breeze each boat on starting canted
with her head to the southward, and hoisting a

hand; rounding Tucker's and Morgan's Islands
they shaped a course to pass Pearl Island on Star-
board hand, round a mark boat off Long Island, back
through the Stag Channel, round a mark boat off
Commissioner's Point and back between Committee
Vessel and the Breakwater, twice round. After
rounding Tucker's and Morgan's Islands the Prin-
cess Alice commenced rapidly to draw up to the
smaller boats, all then carrying plain sail, the little

all well together. They passed the Committee

At 12-30 the 4 Cutters started and all pulling a
fast stroke got well away. Unfortunately a fouling
match occurred before rounding the 1st buoy, but
the boats getting clear soon settled down into posi-
tion, Shipwright's leading, Terror's second, New
Works Third, and Marines, whose boat was much
heavier than the others, a good fourth. On the
way to flogfish Beacon, after passing a mark boat
off the Spar Yard, the New Works Cutter commen-

boat hard at work to maintain her place; eventu-

The next race on the programme was for
the whalers, but as many of the men composing
their crews were away in the cutters, the 1st Class
Skiffs were started at lh 32m 35s but as there were
many fouls and some of the boats passed the wrong
side of the mark-boat, this race was a failure and
the cup was adjudged to be pulled for again.

At 1-45 three Whalers started. The Master

by stokers and the Terror's by Dock-seamen. Soon
after starting the Stokers took the lead, followed
closely by the Riggers, the latter pulling a longer
stroke overhauled the former in the Stag Channel
and were never after challenged for the lead. The

slimy looking boulders, (some two hundred and fifty
yards long by twelve or fifteen feet wide) vexed the eye,
it has been filled in and faced ; and similarly ugly spaces
between the jetties on the inside, have also been filled
in and faced in a masterly manner at an angle corres-
ponding with the rest of the Breakwater, converting
-repulsive looking recesses into a pleasing piece of ma-
A small pier too, has been run out, into the deep wa-
ter of the Ocean, which will doubtless prove a great
boon to the boats" of vessels lying in Grassy Bay,
and most convenient for other purposes as at high tide,
steam launches and even larger vessels might, we
should think approach with safety, such as mud pon-
toons, hopper barges, and mooring lighters.
One might well imagine that this could only have
been executed at an immense outlay of labor and money
and might well ask where were the masons found, suffi-
cient to have done it in so short a time P Picture our
surprise on learning that it was all done by seamen of
the Fleet at a cost of ninepence or a shilling a day per
man ; directed by the guiding and watchful eye of the
energetic Captain Superintendent who spends his time
in the yard from "bell-ringing" in the morning till long
past the final ring in the evening.
But not only have these rugged and ugly places been
made straight and comely, but the whole pier has thus
been much widened and converted into a magnificent
promenade where the sea-weary mariners may be seen
in hundreds when the Fleet is in, stretching their sea-
legs and enjoying their smoke; while they still inhale
the invigorating Ocean breeze; while some recline in
easy and varied postures on the comfortable (" garden")
seats provided here and there, by the kind considera-
tion of the same ruling spirit.
But the improvements on the Breakwater are far from
being the only ones for which Ireland Island is indebt-
ed to Captain Moresby. Who does not remer.ber that
winter after winter, the approaches from the landings to
the residences and offices, were after every heavy shower,
nay almost constantly, ankle deep in water. Now, there
are observable throughout the yard, sundry rectilinear
patches of course shingle, nicely levelled and surround-
ed by a border of larger stones, inviting the most un-
ing was displayed and no accident occurred con-
trary to all expectation. 3 boats started at 3h 55m

Whalers pulled by Dockyard apprentices. Two
boats started, the Shipwright and Factory Ap-
prentices. This was a most closely contested race
and the boys pulled remarkably well. They started
at 4h 10m Os, and the Shipwrights took the lead
and kept it, but on passing up the Stag Channel
the Factory pushed them hard and eventually
passed them at the mark boat off Commissioner's

A protest was raised and the Factory were dis-

After this the scene of the amusement was shift-

matches, tub races, gig and punt chase, and greasy

attempts, by Robert Wall, a Bermudian.

On Saturday the Ladies' Cup was sailed for by
Officers in the Dockyard sailing boats. There was
a smart Northerly breeze, and a good race was an-
ticipated. The start was from alongside the Com-
mittee vessel, the course the same as on the previ-
ous day, except that Pearl Island was passed on the
port hand; and there was no mark boat off Long Is-
land, the boats returning from Pearl -Island to en-
trance of Stag Channel. The competing boats were
started at the following times :

With a fresh breeze they started for the run to'
leeward all carrying squaresails and maintained
their respective positions, but at smaller intervals,
to Tucker's Island. Here the Emily's squaresail
gave her some trouble and she lost a considerable
amount of ground before she hauled her wind to
run to leeward of Tucker's Island. The Lady
Stewart was now leading, closely followed by Lord
of the Isles. The Princess Alice stopping to take
a reef in dropped a long way astern keeping
company for a time with the Emily. On clearing
the land the boats experienced a rattling breeze
down the stretch of the Sound and travelled fast
through the water, Lady Stewart soaking out to
windward wonderfully, she and the Lord of the
Isles made a hard fight of it when standing in
towards the land by Spanish Point and went about
almost together steering for the Stag Channel,
however the Lord of the Isles, got the best of it
running, and when the boats next tacked she was
well to windward and after this the result was
never doubtful. The Princess Alice on the turn
to windward closed with the leading boats very
fast but had lost too much ground to recover her
yesterday's leading position. The boats arrived at

The Committee may be congratulated on having
had a very successful Regatta.
Those who mingled with the gay crowd on the Break-
water during the Regatta, and who knew the spot of
yore, could not fail to be struck with the vast improve-
ments that have been effected during the past year ;
reminding us of the times when in the same vicinity,
masses of masonry seemed to spring into existence as
by magic,-vizt., when Boaz was a Convict settlement.
We noticed that all along the outside of the Break-
proposed in the Gaol matter is very good, and if
both sides will observe a little philanthropy I think it
might easily be adopted for the public as well as
private welfare. I have no doubt the owners of the
rejected property could without much loss of time,
invest the round or even sum hinted at, so as to re-
alize the present income; and if the Board of
Works feels any hesitation let them refer the ques-
tion back, to the country's representatives to relieve
It, needs no philosopher to determine that all the
obtainable area is required, whether expedient to
take it or not; and as to prices, although they
do not pretend to report actual values, yet the peo-
ple's assessors being men of experience and know-
ledge in that line, are the best and most reliable
judges of the relative values of property, and there-
by the best authority.

MR. EDITOR,-About this planet, "Vulcan:" I
cannot make out why the Bermudian astronomers think
"the axis only revolve" !
Now, suppose the axis axletreee or whatever else you
like to call it) got loose, it would of course travel with
much greater velocity than if it were carrying round
the .circumference (i e the body of the planet.)' The
steamer City of Naples, nearly 12 months ago, put in
here with damaged machinery. The shaft of her pro-
peller revolved fast enough, while the propeller without
moving, evidently thought it a fool for its pains! Sure-
ly this is a parallel case.
But then again how was this irregularity discovered.
I did not think Bermuda possessed a telescope pow-
erful enough to see Vulcan. But fancy the state of
perfection art has arrived at to see his axis, and not
only see his axis but see they are revolving while the
planet is not !
People may hold what opinion they like-but when I
hear all the laige planets, viz., Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus,
Neptune, Mars, are hurrying up in the direction of this
wanderer, I fancy the next generation of astronomers
will have to record the discovery of a few more asteroids
in the neighbourhood of the sun.

ing patches ? Moresby's Patent Surface Drains,"

A deluge passes, as a shower:

Controller of all the Departments in the Dockyard

culated to excite the envy of the most diligent of house-
maids-far from it.-Take a stroll on the island, the
roads call forth our admiration, especially after a drive

leave this for a future and separate occasion-but con-
tinuing oar stroll we notice the well kept buildings, the
neatly fenced gardens, the additional dwellings in course
of construction, the space liberally allotted to the co-
operative society, the Boys' School Room, the provision
made for building one for the girls, &c., &c., and the
general appearance of the island; all bespeaking a
thoughtfulness and consideration for the well being and
comfort of his subordinates, as well as a capacity, which
are not always to be found united in those whose lot it
is to command.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-It must be a matter of great satisfaction to
every one who has at heart the future weal of our Is-
land home to notice the lively interest which is being
manifested by our worthy Governor to secure a
more liberal education for the youth of our land.
The Common Schools Bill with all its fine drawn
differences and subtle distinctions went the rounds
in both Houses of Legislature, and was at last care-
fully laid on the shelf ; but it is to be hoped that
at no distant day a Schools System will be intro-
duced in our midst which will be a general blessing
to the rising generation. Education, as far as aid-
ed or supplied by the Colonial Government, must
necessarily be more beneficial to the Colored people
than the White because of their numerical superi-
And while other and comparatively disinterested
parties are agitating this question and devising
schemes to promote its interest, what have become
of No. 2 Body of Trustees for Devonshire College ?
Why do these men who have been chosen and em-
powered to benefit in this particular, the people
they represent, remain inactive, and it may be ut-
terly indifferent as to the educational status of
their brethren. With all due respect to our late
esteemed Governor Lefroy and his advisers, I do
think that their choice might have fallen on a set of
men more in sympathy with their people, and conse-
quently more willing to discharge the important.
duties devolving upon them.
The Trustees give as a reason for taking no ac-
tion in the matter entrusted to them-that the
Schools (White and Colored) were to be separate
and not amalgamated-which in their opinion was
a stigma on the people. Well, granting it to be a
reproach to the people, 1 would ask-Was it wise
or even reasonable for the Trustees to deny the
people the blessings of a liberal Educatian because
they could not be amalgamated? Would it not
have been better to have accepted the Education
and let the amalgamation have been a secondary
consideration ? When the question was, Will you
have Education or none ? (comparatively), was it wise
for us to stand this on an imaginary dignity, and
say-Unless amalgamated, we will have none ? I
think not. In fact, the Trustees never consulted
the people on the subject whatever, (they for the
most part being men who hold themselves aloof
from their less favored brethren.) These leading
men (?) then, have acted for themselves, and not
forethle people; for if the people had been consulted
on the subject it is not too much to suppose that
ere this time there would have been an Educational
Institution in our midst which would have been at
once a blessing and a credit to the country.
Moreover, some of these very Trustees are at the
present time taking part in a movement to estab-
lish a Classical School for the benefit of a certain
class of the colored people. A very laudable under-
taking. But do they anticipate for this Institution
amalgamation with the Whites. I think not.
Then how in the name of reason is it that they ac-
cept for themselves Education without amalgama-
tion and yet have withheld the blessing of a liberal
Education from the Common people on the plea of
Surely, here is an anomaly; and one that might
reasonably lead us to come to the conclusion that
Body No. 2 raised the amalgamation question as a
fence to deprive the masses of a liberal Education,
whereby they (the Trustees) would eventually have
lost their own assumed prestige.
Thanking you, sir, for this little space,
I remain, Yours respectfully,

ON THE DEATH OF A FATHER.
It is not death, he doth but sleep,
Oh dry thy tears and do not weep;
His soul has but retired to rest,
By pain and weariness opprest,
To sleep within the lonely urn,
We all must follow in our turn.
He is not dead, 'tis but his clay,
That like the flowers has died away,
To mingle in some other form
The soul rides high above the storm.
He doth but sleep, so soon may we,
And in that sleep how time will flee;
A thousand years will only seem
A thought, a glimpse, a flash, a dream.
He doth but sleep, he will awake,
When the eternal day shall break;
With golden floods of glorious ligh,
On vales of heaven wide and bright,
And waking, oh what joy to find,
The dear ones whom he left behind;
In loving circle by his side,
His joy, his girls, his faithful bride.
That hour will thousand-fold repay
The anguish of the parting day;
Then dry thy tears, oh do not weep,
It is not death, he does but sleep.

as the lady of the house, was quite at home, one
would almost imagine, that she had been an ac-
complished actress all her life, instead of its being
her first performance on any stage. She made as
great a hit as an actress would wish to do on her

played her part as effectively as on the previ-
ous occasion. Mr. Cotesworth, as the dandyfied

other parts, represented by Messrs. Keane and
Kelly were rather better personated than on the
last occasion, (which was very creditable to them.)
Much praise is due to Lieut. Hancock for his
untiring zeal and energy in assisting towards the
success of the performance, and in closing a very
pleasant Evening's Entertainment with his Tableau
of the Capture of Cetywayo by the British.
PRESERVED MEATS, &c.-Of all the various kinds
of preserved meats, fish, fruit and vegetables, that we
have ever tasted, we unhesitatingly give the preference
to those of Messrs. Thurber & Co., whose extensive
Establishment is at West Broadway, Reade and Hud-
son street, New York. The meats and fish from other
similar establishments we could never relish, and it re-
quired some little pursuasion to induce us even to
taste of those from Thurber's, but having tasted them
we can now eat of them with an appetite. The pre-
servation of the fruit is perfection-the original flavour
is perfectly retained and indeed many of them to our
taste preferable to any we can import in a fresh state.
We notice by the English Naval papers that the
services of Frederick Fegen, Esqr., who was Secre-
tary to Admiral Milne, when Naval Commander.in.
Chief on this Station, are strongly advocated as en-
titling him to the decoration of the Order of the
Bath. There are very many in Bermuda who
would be much pleased to learn that this mark of
favor had been bestowed on him. Mr. Fegen is

The Corporation deserve the thanks of travellers on
"Victoria Street" (the Eastern extremity of the Town)
for having ernlighteupd them to see the dangers of
movements on that street on dark nights by placing
Lamps at the extreme points from Dundonaild" to
" Church" Streets, but now that they can see them so
much more clearly they are the more desirous of pro-
tection against them. The thoroughfare on that street
is very great both by day and night and in the event of
a horse becoming restive it would be very convenient
to make a summerset over the bank on the West side,
the street being too narrow to admit of much sweep.
It is hardly wide enough for two doubles to pass with
perfect safety except with gentle horses and careful
drivers, and we must not always look for these in this
community. Properly the street ought to be widened
at least five feet on the Eastern side, but we will be
content to await the advent of the Corporation of 1880
for this boon, though prior to the present body closing
their arduous labors we should be ra uch obligated if
they would consider the propriety of placing a single
heavy toprail upon substantial stakes that would pre-
vent a carriage going over the banks on the West side.
The writer once witnessed a restive horse coming down
the hill with passengers in the carriage-another car-
riage was waiting occupying more than its due of the
street, and the driver off the box, and the said horse not
liking to be'checked passed it at a close shave; and on
the same journey descending another hill became unruly
and caused a smash-up, but fortunately without any
serious consequences, and the passengers felt much
more comfortable than they probably would have done

DEAn SIR,-According to late New York papers,
"Pleuro Pneumonia" has made such havoc among
American cattle, as to be styled a national calamity.
In several of the States, a strict quarantine and
stamping out process has been adopted. For some
time a great ( effort was made to hide the fact, that
there was any disease of a contagious nature among
American cattle, but the British Government,
finding frequent cases of "Pleuro Pneumonia"
among the cattle landed at British ports, now re-
quire all cattle to be slaughtered at the port and
place of landing, this being the only way to pre-
vent their own herds from contagion.
The farmers of Bermuda have of late years made
great efforts by imported stock, to improve the
breed of cattle, and can ill afford to risk the loss
which would follow the introduction of "Pleuro
Every fortnight oxen are landed, without
inspection or quarantine, in the most busy part of
the town, often when the streets are most crowded,
and driven to the slaughter houses in different
parts of the island, and other cattle wherever re-
quired, perhaps carrying with them infection that
may cost the country dear.
Every market day Beef is offered to the public
that has never been inspected as to its fitness for
human food and any peculiarity in colour is easily
accounted for, by the Animal having been fed on
Indian Corn P In every civilized country besides
Bermuda Inspectors of meat are appointed by the
government, to visit the markets daily, and to con-
demn unsound meat, but here nothing of the sort
is done, and the consumer must either take what is
offered or go without.
Some act should be passed by the Legislature
at the coming Session, to prevent the introduction
of diseased and infected cattle, to regulate the
hours and place of landing, and to prevent the sale
of unsound meat.

which deprived iher of' a loving husband. His Excel

was an Irishnman. A brave soldi-er, an accompllM.
scholar, and an eminent diplonintist, those in Inndi
uiho are best able to t ; tily ,o hisi merits have told u
the value of liis grat seirnic-s in that Emnpire, which
had found their reward in the exalted position assign
ed to him by the Quein-Enip ivs and her Govern
ment. It will be seen by the report which we public
from the "Lahore p.p.r" l.-w hihlv e-teerned w a
the late Envoy nt Cal.il. At tlhe' liinnr pivcn in hi
honour at ThInll, Cn1irai n Plowden, PD put v Commis
sioner of the ioliat District, spoke in the warmesl
terms of Major Cavaunari, who had so lrelv, and a

contemporaries for his able and \iorous managernric'
of the frontier tribes on its border, and lor the -enr t
ous and liberal manner in which he at all times treat
ed its Nawabs and chiefs. They recognized years ag
his talents as an admhinitrator, his foen'rosity nVr
superior, his warmheartedness as a trienil': and a
one specially fitted by his training to reprsi.rnt, th
Empress of India at the Court oif Cabul. Thi wr
the testimony of a British officer; but it was not th
only testimony. MAuhammud Amir Khan, the princip:
Khan of Upper Aleranzi, said that it was a source <
real pride to the chiefs of theo Koliat district to n. --i
meet Major Cavagnari, so many years their Deiutl
Commissioner, and to know that h'e was the fist Er
voy selected to represent the Biiti h Government :
the Court of his Highness the Amir." He was boun
up with Major Cavaenari, whomi he hoped often 1
visit at tabul ; but that hope has bcten shattered I
the treachery of the Af2hans..
Now, as regards the communication itself, we not
hardly say that it will be read with min-led fEeliin.

to have been such a miserable affair that most peop
were indignant that the British Envovy would hav
been sent forward with so few soldiers in his trait
but now we have the truth from his Excellencv's owl
hand, and we learn that the escort consisted of
squadron of cavalry, four guns, and about one thous
and infantry It has been said, also, by some of tl
English journals that his Excellency and staff tempted
assault y; riding about ULbul in an unprotected cond
tion; but to this a reply is to be found in his Exce
lencv's communication, which informs us that "sinf(
their arrival at Kabul the otfi'ccrsof the Embassy hav
frequently gone out riding about the environs of tf1
place. A detachment of the Amir's Body Guard a8
ways accompanies thein, as does also a paity of tl
guide cavalry." His Excellency Sir Louis Cavagna
knew well where he was, and the people among whmh
he was, and it is very shabby of English journals 1
try to cnver theshortcomings of Government by throv
ing doubt on the sagacity of our distinguished court
tryman. He has enabled us to give the public ti
true facts of the number of the esco t, the march 0
the Embassy, the splendid reception .it met at Cabu
the friendship which had sprung up between Britis
and Afghan officers, the condition of Cabul, and manr
particulars which have been unknown hitherto in or

without reflecting on the in4crutabilityrof that Prov

the hopes we had formed ; separating us suddenly frol
the friends we had loved ; ove.rspreading ihe sunshini

A STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCEWVITH RAT
Prom the Pall Mall Gazette, Aug. 11.
The plague of rats in the Deccan for the second
season in succession is occasioning serious alai n
These animals oversprend the county like locust
destroy the crops almost as thoroughly, and ait
even more difficult to keep down. So grave ha
become the aspect of affairs that a "Rat Commil
tee" was appointed to inquire into the best'mean
of disposing of these creatures. They went thoin
oughly into the question after the manner of cor
mittees in India, and their recommendations ait
carefully tabulated. The people are to be induce
to turn out en masse and face the enemy ; reward
are to be offered for dead -rats, and, in fact, the it
vanion is to be treated as a matter to be dealt wit
vigorously by the whole community. No gre:
way will, however, be made until the same met
gures are adopted which are taken with rabbi
.in Australia when- they become an unendurab
nuisance, It has been found that the only success
ful plan is to block up allbte holes which can I
found. The difficulty in Australia is to obtali
sufficient labor for this process. That difficulty
not likely to exist in Bombay, and a correspondent
of a Bombay newspaper has already suggested tha
this plan should be adopted. In the meantime tt
question has arisen as to how the rats have so ir
creased and multiplied. This point can, however
be discussed with more cailmness when they hay
in some way been reduced to their former subo:
A NEW MEDICAL THEORY.-A Minnesota mna
writesto the Salem (Mass.) Gazette as follows:-
"A discovery in the treatment of diphtheria hi
been made here. A young man, whose arm ha
been amputated, was attacked'with diphtheria be
tore healing took place; and instead of the matt
incident to that disease being deposited in th
throat, the greater portion appearedon the wounI
ed arm, and the diphtheria was very light an
easily managed. flis'doctor profited by this, an
in his next case of diphtheria blistered his patient
chest, and on this blistered part the chief deposi
appeared., This was also an easy case of the di
ease. The theory of the doctor is that diphther
usually appears in the throat because of the thin
cess of the lining of the throat. Hence when ti
blister breaks the skin upon any other part of tl
body,, the disease appears there."

their king. No Zulu had ever put such an army
into the ti.ld nz. he, and all thevictories- of Chaka 5
" the soenure f .Arica," paled to nothing before
thli horn ii!. splendour of Isandula. The King of
the Zulus was then a king indeed, and his grand
refusal to let any other crowned head share the sun
with him must have seemed to a people who speak

quite natural expression of superiority. The white

time doubted his physical activity were in error. All Sales
In appearance there wss otherwise little to distin-
guish the King from his people. His hair was
closely trimmed, his head ringed after the ordinary Hamilton, J
fashion of the married men, and his dress consisted
of a small aprou of whito goat or leopard s..kin. T
HIis face was cleaned shaved, and of the darkest T l
shade of Zulu complexion, while the broad lore-
head, intelligent eyes, short upper lip, and course
African jaw were none of them features to make
him marked among his sui:.jects. Considering his GOLD ME
weight, Cefywayo has always been an active man,
and, remembering Low prodigious obesity had been
the fate of his predecessors, and having in his bro- The
their Oham's elephantine proportions an ever-present
warning of what he might look forward to if he was
not careful, he took regular exercise and moderat-
ed his 1eer. Every morning when the weather per- Specially pi
mitted it the Zulu King was wont to take a long really close
walk. 13B',re starting he fortifiedi himself with, in firkins
sometimes, a mighty dirugUht of "Jowali" beer, no erins
more often lea or coffee, and then, longstaffin hand ecee
his attendanls carrying his arms, Cetywayo strode T. J. CL
forth from Li- kraal. As h' pisscd. the sonorous Cork, Irela
greeting accorded only to Kings, and given with
both arms uplifted, r,:souneld all along the circle THU
of the kraal, and even after he had left the enclos-
ure and was climbing up the slopes that lie be-
hind Ulundi, the acclaim of the saluting people fol-
lowed him. Behind him streamed out a long fol- (1R EAT
lowing of indunas and tlieir retinues, some of them years
old men-grumbling at the pace the King liked to getalbles, F
walk at, and puffing laboriously as they went. Cety- quence the
wayo himself paced along, "every iuch a king," as As yet, hov
Shepstone has described him, and sometimes a full t\i\unht to
hour, or even more, elapsed before he turned on his perhaps, en
heel. As hheswuna youth hnhad pre- perhaps, e
ceded him, carrying a great white shi Id, ran nimbly jacked by u
to his new po)silion, all the following halted in their at the source
places till the King was again at the head of the best possible
procession, and then the whole party turned their serves the
faces kraalwards. By this time Ulundi was awake flavors; an
and at the firAt glimpse of the returning King the fresher, m
Royal cry, "Bayete.! was again heard and caught many so-ca
up from hut to hut. Arrived at his dwelling, posed for
Cetywayo would find all ready for his bath. Seat- time in cit
ing himself, he gave the order for ablutions to corn-name are

bulky person, two otbers,,kneeling, were busy with a dealers
stones rubbing the skin. This was not, of course price in an]
in the eye of the people, but inside the isgodhlo" for dissatisl
-the enclosure which separates the Royal huts from terest of I
the rest of the kraal, and is itself subdivided, the TnURBER'S
innermost division having a passage leading to the H K,
King's private apartments. It was while thus em-
ployed that Celywayo used to receive, unseen, such IM PORT
as might have court to pay or favors to thank him And
for. As.soon as the splashing of watei- assured -
them that their chief was within hearing, the visi- P4
tors approached the wall of the "isgodhlo," and,
waving their staves and strikingthem on the ground Ci)
executed a sort of laudatory dance, stamping with
their feel in time to the recitative in which they ex-
pressed their thanks for a Royal bounty of beef or
other favour conferred upon them. All haunted
together. Meanwhile, the "court jester," seeing
the performance, would approach. This function-
ary was cbiefly etteeme'l for the skill with which h
improvised on whatever might be bappeuing. He
tried his hand at once upon the salutations, proceed-
ing before him, and the strength of lung acquired
ho doubt, by long practice, often enabled him in
time to drown the voices of the dancers and to sing
them all down, Cetywayo enjoying the contest vast-
ly from within. The jester, however would contin-
ue his monologue until the King appeared again in
public. But it was only for a few moments, unless
some question of importance arrested his attention
and then Cetywayo withdrew again to his morning
meal. While he was eating, adead silence prevail- FTU E J
ed throughout the Royal quarters, a young girl ..L Ladie
passing swiftly from apartment to apartment with hd
her finger on her lips--" Hush, the King is eat- on hand by
ing!" Not a cough nor (a sneeze was permissible ment not
until the meal ended, and then the multitudinous Manufactor
Babel of a Zulu kraal broke out afresh. Cetywayo, any style o
after an interval, would come out again, and hear engraved.
in due state all cases brought before him. Appeal Rememb
to such a high tribunal was not, however, common, the Gold V
for where life is held cheap, and a little thing may
turn judicial attention into promiscuous and fatal
impatience, appellants are naturally few. The ad- Front Ste
ministration of justice over for the day-thi' man Deer 1
fined, and that man beaten, the other perhaps or-
dered off to death--a military spectacle of some ''`L1
kind would succeed. Few days passed in the Roy- ihe
al kraal without one regiment or another having de-
tachments under review, and at these Cetwayo al- ,Tf TE
