*We trust that the report may prove true that
Lady Cavagnari's claims to a pension from the
Civil List will be favourably entertained by the
Government. A stronger case was never yet put
forward, for notwithstanding the great service he
had i-endered! to the-Empire of India, the late Sir
Louis Cavagnari was but a major in the Army, and
the allowance granted under ordinary circumstances
to a major's widow would be a most inadequate
allowance for the widow of one who has sacrificed
his life in his devotion to duty, and who in the late
campaign, did so much both as a soldier and di-
plomatist.-Naval and Military Gazette.

The China Mail of Aug. 12 says :-" By this mail the
Deputy-Li:i-:Lr-General, Royal Naval Hospital,
Dr. S. 8, D. Wells, :, to Europe. His name
will be associated with the most sensible series of
s'i,:.:- ,: n's made here in connection with the sub-
ject of contagious diseases, on which a Government
Commission recently sat. For the prominent part
he took and the great trouble he must have been at
in connection with that inquiry, he, of course, re-
ceived no thanks; the views his long experience
and intimate knowledge of the subject enabled him
to give not being in consonance with the crude ideas
and sentimental notions of' those in authority
under the Queen and over us.' A public and pro-
fessional duty promptly and perfectly performed
often has to be, like virtue, its own reward.'

they would be able to float her at high tide last
night.
H. M. Troopship Tamar, Captain W. H. Liddell, i

The Tamar also brought the following drafts for

- Royal Arlillery-M aster Gunner Mescal, wife and
3 children, 2 trumpeters, 16 rank and file, 1 woman
and 2 children.

H. M. S. Tamar left on Saturday last for Barbados
and Jamaica.
The Tamar also brought from Halifax fifty car-
penters, painters, &c., civilians, for work on the
floating Dock, "Bermuda," at the Royal Naval
Yard. The Captain Superintendent of the Naval
Establishments at Ireland Island, failing to secure
a sufficient number of mechanics, &c., for the per-
formance of the work necessary to the Dock, sent
to Halifax for a number. Fifty it seems were
advertised for, and in the course of a few hours
one hundred and fifty persons responded to the
advertisement and out of this number the fifty that
came in the Tamar, were selected. Passages for
some twenty others were kindly granted by the
Admiral, to seek for work in the Naval Yard or
elsewhere, on their own responsibility. Not being
required by the Captain Superintendent, they have
sought employment on the main Island and some
of them we are told have been successful.
The Tamar is to carry out the reliefs of the West
India Regiments between the West Coasts of Af-
rica and Jamaica, returning thence to Portsmouth
with invalids, &o., calling at Bermuda en route.
Sheis expected to return to England about 14th
Feby. 1880.
HEAVy WEATHER AT SEA.-H. M. Troopship
Tamiar, which arrived yesterday morning from Eng-
land, < ncountered very heavy weather at sea on Fri-
day and Sai.uirday Iast, in which she lost two life
boats and a quarter boat, had her decks swept, and
about 150 worth of crockery destroyed. The
steamer Mistissirpi of the Dominion line, which


arrived on Wednesday from Liverpool, G. B., en-
counteied a gale at the same time, in which she
lost two boats, had another boat and skylight stove;
also the saloon flooded with water.-lalifax Morn-
ing Chronicle, October 17.
H.M.S. Northampton, Captain J. A. Fisher, the
new Flag-ship for this station, was inspected at the
Nore on the 8th inst. Revd. Benjamin Pideock,
MA., Chaplain of the Bellerophon, and Mr. George
Williams, Naval Instructor, and some other non-
executive officers of the Bellerophon, who have not
completed their term of service on that vessel, will,
we hear, says the Army and Navy Gazette, be trans-
ferred to the Northampton, on her relieving the
Belleroplon as flag-ship on the North America
station.
- Commander Swinton Holland has been appoint- -
ed to the Northampton.

SALISBURY ON THE SITUATION.
MANCHESTER, (ENO.) Oct. 17.-Lord Salisbury
made a speech at a banquet to-night in which he
remarked that the Opposition leaders, after attack-
ing his circular in reply to the San Stefano Treaty;
and after having permitted Mr. Gladstone to ex-
pend the limited resources of his sophistry upon
it, had now veered round and asserted that the
Government had not acted up to the circular by
opposing Russia. Salisbury recapitulated and jus-
tified the policy of the Government, point by point,
strong hostility to Russia being very noticeable
throughout his remarks. In regard to the fact that
Turkey had not occupied the Balkans, he said, in
the present state of the Russian Empire, Turkey
has no reason to expect aggressions. The badness
of the Government of Turkey, or any other country,
would never justify us in handing over great stra-
tegetic positions to any power whose aggressions
threaten happiness and independence. But there
are other points of the treaty of Berlin besides the
occupation of the Balkans. If you do not trust a
Turkish sentinel on the ramparts, you may trust
an Austrian sentinel at the door. Since the occu-
pation of Novi Bazar, the advance of the Russians
beyond the Balkans and the Danube is impossible.
In the independence and strength of Austria rests
the last hope of European stability. If the asser-
tion of the newspapers that a defensive alliance
has been formed between Austria and Germany
proves to be true, all who value the peace of Eu-
rope will hail it as glad tidings of great joy.
Salisbury defended the Government's policy in
regard to Afghanistan, the main principle of which
continues to be defence not dominion. He observ-
ed that the Liberals, in endeavouring to frame the
programme, selected that which would divide them
least in consequence of principles encouraged by
former Liberal legislation.
The separatist movement in Ireland had now
attained unprecedented proportions. He warned
the people of the effect the' accession of the Li-
berals to power would have on both home and
foreign politics. He felt sure the English people
would prefer to maintain a firm front at home so
that with the assistance of worthy allies they might
maintain peace and right abroad.

CAPTURE OF CETYWAYO.
Cetywayo behaved like a king in his downfall.
Lord Gifford, with his white cavalry and natives,
got within four miles of the kraal where the Zulu
King was at daybreak and there lay in ambush,
fearing to advance across the open ground and wait.
ing for the night to make the attack lest the King
should see and escape into the bush, which borders
the kraal within 100 yards on the north side. Lord
Gifford was on the southeast side. In the meantime
Major Marter, with the King's Dragoon Guards,
appeared on the northeast and was seen by the King
but was not feared, the King thinking the cavalry
in the bad ground could not approach quietly or
without warning. Major Marter, however, had
stripped the saddles and left the scabbards behind.
Disappearing from view he stole up noiselessly
through the bush. The Native Contingent, whom
he had concealed, were put in advance, and they
were able to move more rapidly than the horses.
These men dashed out of the bush and surrounded
the kraal, saying, "The white man is coming; you
are caught." Major Marter then rode up and dis-
mounted, entered the kraal, and coming straight to
the hut in which the King was, called on him to
come forth and surrender. The King feared and
said, "No, you come unto me;" but Marter was
inflexible and the King, creeping out, stood up
among the dragoons with stately composure. A
dragoon sought to lay his hands upon him, but he
waved the man back disdainfully, saying, White
soldier, let me be." He then asked to be shot.
The King's bearing on the march between the lines
of the Sixtieth Regiment into his tent in the camp
at Ulundi was dignified and calm. Wearing a red
blanket upon his breast in the manner of a Roman
toga, he stepped slowly, looking round with head
thrown back and haughty gaze at the soldiers
around him. When captured he asked the rank of


the officer who had taken him. He treated the
Native Contingent contemptuously.

AccIDENT AT A THEATRE.--Baltimore, Oct. 14.-
At the Front Street Theatre (variety show) to-night,
in the last act of the play of Roving Jack," in
which a discharge of musketry takes place, a young
man named John Nelson, of Queen Annes county,
Md., a medical student at the University of Mary-
land, who was seated in the audience. was fatally
shot from the stage, one of the muskets being load-
ed with a ball instead of a blank cartridge. Nel-
son was shot through the head, the bullet passing
through the brain. He was taken to the City Hfos-
pital and is said to be dying.

CHINESE OATH TO BE ADMINISTERED.
From the San Francisco Call, Sept. 27.
The Sing Fung habeas corpus case was again be-
fore the County Court at 2 o'clock yesterday after-
noon, at which hour Si Que, who is charged with
secreting her from her lover, was ordered to pro-
duce her in court. This the respondent failed to
do. Counsel for the prosecution moved that Si Que
be committed for contempt until such time as she
should produce Sing Fung. The Judge stated that
he had not been convinced by the conflicting testi-
mony that Si Qui was able to produce the woman
and declined to commit her. Counsel for the pro-
secution stated that he did not think that Si Que
had told the truth while testifying under the regu-
lar court oath, as she probably did not think it
binding and asked that the witness be allowed to
take the Chinese oath, which ceremony included
the cutting off of a chicken's head. The court
granted the request, but, as the counsel did not
have the implements-knife, tub and chicken-in
the Court, the case %asa adjourned until Tuesday,
at 10 a.m.,'at which time the ceremony of decapitat-
ing the rooster will be performed,


THE PRINCESS LOUISE
Left Quebec on a visit to England in the Allan

It is said that the Princess will return to Canada

The Royal Apartments on board the Good Ship Sar-
matian.
MONTREAL,Oct. 15.---Eleven state rooms have been
set apart on board of the Allan Royal Mail Steam-
ship Sarmatian, for the, exclusive use of the Princess
Louise and suite. -The rooms are all on the port'
side of the ship immediately adjoining the main
saloon, and have been specially fitted up for the oc-
casion. The sides of the stateroom which will be
occupied by the Princess have been upholstered in
French grey satin, with blue trimmings. The bed
is curtained in the same material, and around the
sides of the room mirrors and splendid engravings
have been hung, while the furniture of the room is
upholstered in blue satin, giving the whole a most
elegant and comfortable appearance, totally devoid
of anything ship-like. Immediately across the lit-
tle passage from her private apartment three state-.
rooms have been turned into one for'the purpose of
a private sitting room, or dining room, should it be
so desired. The sides of this room have been up-
holstered in cardinal red satin, with furniture to
match and carpet in perfect taste, making the room
very suggestive of home comforts. On the sides
tasty little pictures and mirrors have been placed
so as to make the room as cheerful as possible, as
it is in this room that Her Royal Highness will
probably pass mqst of her time. One half of the
main cabin will be curtained off for the exclusive
use of the suite, should the Princess so desire.
There have been a large number of flowering plants
placed in the centre of this room, and with its su-
perb fittings it is an ideal of luxury and ease. The
whole arrangements have been carefully carried
out by Captain Barclay, who has spared no pains
to make everything as beautiful and comfortable
as possible. The ship itself has been painted and
cleaned and looked almost conscious of the preci-
ous freight she is about to bear across the turbulent
waters of the Atlantic. As was the case when the
Sarmatian brought the Vice-Regal party to this
country some ten months ago, Captain Aird will
take the ship home.

SIR FRANCIS HINCKS FOUND GUILTY.
MONTREAL, Oct., 20.-The trial of Sir Francis
Hincks, one of the directors of the Consolidated
Bank, charged with signing false returns to the
Government, was convicted to-day. Mr. Kerr,
council for Sir Francis, in addressing the jury, said
the form supplied by the Government was correctly
filled by the Executive officer. It was also shown
that it was the general custom of the banks to place
loans on time under the head of deposits, and he
maintained that the demand notes were placed
under their proper heading. Mr. Ritchio, for the
Crown, withdrew the charge in the indictment that
it was possible for a bank president to check all
returns in the time allowed by the Government.
He urged that the accused knew of the money be.
ing borrowed from other banks to keep the doors
of the Consolidated open, and also had a knowledge
of the demand notes and bonds, and consequently
Sir Francis was guilty of making false returns to
deceive the Government and the public. Justice
Monk, after dwelling upon the deplorable nature of
the case, charged strongly against the accused.
The Jury,after fter an hour and a quarter's absence,
returned a verdict of guilty.
Sir Francis Hincks was born in Ireland of Eng-
lish ancestry. He founded, forty years ago, a Re-
form journal in Toronto, and was afterward the
chief political writer for another in Montreal. He
was instrumental in negotiating the Reciprocity
Treaty with the United States in 1854, and likewise
promoted the construction of the Grand Trunk
Railway in Canada. He was Governor of Barba-

has issued a notice by way of warning reciting that
there is reason to believe that a system of soliciting
persons to join the faith and emigrate to America
extensively prevails, and reminding such persons
that by American law polygamy is prohibited, and
that those who practise it are liable to heavy fines
and long terms of imprisonment."

A *L,'. ;OF HONOUR.
From a quiet, semi-dark. heavily ..'*.. bay-
window of the library, into which tie i'y'-.
stars of a frosty January .. Y...I' .:l i r. ,-.'' y,
Dare Vivian looked out into the light, and warmth
and brilliancy of the ad'.' ."' rooms, anml '.. '
the sweet sounds of women's ...tI bred tones, and
girls' miledy of laughter, aunl men's voices, and the
soft strains of the band, '"- ': a :,, .f 'r :. -;:
preparatory to i i .i, "T;.' dance-music ; and
thirkinp, as he stood there, of a pair of lovely blue
eyes, ui-.'-;r.,: into .,-,r.;i.,.,h '. or other's, and a
dimpled cheek that very ".- was flushing beneath
en admiring glance, and a :-*' a., willowly, g'.;:-.
figure, that more than one r-';'a]'r." arm ,n i-,li
encircle in the dance that s,.: .',
And then, sending warm thrillg all through him,
the very girl herself appeared in the doorway, a
veri -. A le vision cf youth, and '-.W '. ., and '- ..:c.,
leaning caressingly on. Mrs. Ha-.w ,ii' arm.
The two came directly part him, so 'near that,
Daisy Vaughan's dress r1l ,:1, I its silk folds against
the damask curtains-so near that a faint breath of
hter delicate perfume of i i: :. :.I white rose stole
to his senses ; and so near that be heard her speak
to his sister, as the two '- :." -
"Do you really like my :r- Ai- ? You would
never believe the trouble I had matching the rib-
bon.` J
Only a remarkably commonplace remark, but it
deepened that curious expression of distrust and
displeasure that was tui;-' against the passionate
admiration in Mr. Vivian's grave, handsome eyes.
Then, Mrs. Ho'. r:, .-I l':. .': answer as the two
paused a second to a.:' a a womanish scrutiny
of Ihe i( "W ell, ou EIrc .'. e'- -a most :-'l iir.r lyv, ,-.'
Yours is very decidedly the handsomest dress in my
rooms, and I am glad it is so -' '::. Dare,.
know, is such a connoisseur."
p' +Nonsense! Come, Alice, I 0 on,'dat miss that
opening for worlds."
And then Mr.Vivian watched the exquisite girlish
figure, in its delicate silvery blue ?-'i' sun-set pink
silk toilet, flash away.
The look in his eyes deepened and ]i. .-.,'d l'ir-
after Daisy had taken herself away, with her." .
costume that was the admiration of the room, and
that,.'besidesh:ai. -' cost the girl so much money ,-iI
"c'. t her- Dare Vivian's respect. I..-.-- six
months before, Daisy V' b.m ;;. had 'oi. day goneto
Mr. Vivian's office, and asked him in her --'--, sweet.
modest way, a request that -..,ri--". him '1 -:
measure, and -.; one that be could not well --
a request for him to lend har a hundred *..,: for.
a month or two'.
Of course hle had .,', her the money, and she
had gone away with a look *:' "" in her eyes
that repaid him a LI;r..,'.- ,".
Then, when the "month or i'.''" bad .- -.i. .
Daisy went to him '-Dn, her .u.'..'. ,;* lull of
shadows, her voice low and '.tl' "nr', '.d told him
she was not able i rew-'.y him, as she had positively
expected and -, "
He had done what any other :,rtllv:n>i .'.:.l.
have done-begged her not to gi.- Ii'.'. the least
concern about it, but that any future time "',)ui!
suit him perfectly well.
But he was d~e" i'-..,l':d A.ni dismayed at the
principle of this fair, lovely girl, who had been the
chiefest among women in his eyes, arid whom he
loved so truly, so dearly.
Not dis'.l-pointed or dismayed because of her
failure to r.tmo, the money, or because she had
borrowed it, but because, judging from the stand-
point of common sense, he knew she might have re-
paid it more than twice over, had she so chosen.I
And to-night, after his sister and Daisy had gone
back to the dancing-saloon, be stood thinking how
much more noble, and honorable, and womanly it
would have been had the girl kept her w tor(r and
paid her just debts, instead of wearing the, .'ler'-,
expensive dress that was the admiration and envy
of the room.
Standing there, his ; h.'Iih!.s, grew more and more
bitter, till le bad decided that he would never a;..v;.
let his heart go out towards Daisy Vaughan-till he
had decided that she was not the woman to be his
wife-till the music of the band and the perfume of
the .lowers began to grow t..t ii to him, and he
made his way upstairs to his own -- lea," to enjoy a
quiet ci!g,'., i4nd to read his evening letters.
Among them was a letter from a lady who, of
late, had interested him very much, and whose letter
or rather note, of to-night was, as usual, brief;, con-
cise, and intelligent- a business communication, re-
lating to certain ;i"; "' she was ib ami-..ng for him
in a certain German law case ie was conducting.
The letter read, and answered, Mr. Vivian sat
back in his chair, admiring the bold, clean chiro-
graphy.
"If there's any character in handwriting, I take
it my unknown e:., rio'.-ndaat is a woman whom to
know is both a i.- i,:-. ::.,.1 a pleasure-a woman
whose principle would not let her borrow money,
and prefer to buy fancy dresses than pay it. Let's
see It's just six months ago since Miss Elliott
applied for the translating, in answer to my adver-
tisement, and she has insisted on not taking her pay
till the case'is finished. 1 shall owe her quite a
pocketful-yes ; and there is only one batch of pa-
pers more, too. I wonder what she will do with it ?
If Somehow, he caught himself making continual
comparisons between Daisy Vaniai and Miss El-
liot-tbe one, a butterfly girl, who thought nought
I tu r word; the other, industrious, economical,
saving. He brought down his fist on the table.
By Jove! I'm determined to get acquainted
with this employee of mine. I'll send her a cheque
in this letter for the job-a hundred and eighty


pounds-and--- "
He never finished, because at that moment some-
one tapped on the door, and in answer to his
"Come in !" Daisy Vaughan entered, her eyesshin-
ing, her cheeks flushed, her mcuth dimpling and
quivering between smiks and tears-so fair to see
that every pulse in his body thrilled as she drooped
her sweet eyes to his as he sat in his chair ; and she
stood beside him and laid a packet on the table she
had bt'i'-. -'-:! '^ket of his own law :.; :-, that
be had t- ai ..;* Eillio'.
She laughed softly at his look of beWilderment.
'Yes, I am Miss Elliott; and Ihese are the last
of tlei translations I have been r:n..l.ian, for you, tor
pay back the debt I owed you, and which I could
pay no other ayn Mr. Vivian"--and her love-
lby red ips quivered--"I would not have told you
to. ri ,i'.', but, you have been l,-..: so a.:; 7 and
',r i all day, and I couldn't bear to be under your
displeasure any longer. And I want you to know
I borrowed that money for-for brother Dick, to
"a t him out of a .-LIP')., and papa :v.'oie he never
would help him agpi0, and 'e made me promise,
every time he .%... L :e money, I should not help
Dick,, and I hbad to mind papa, Mr. Vivian; but
now, those translations -"
I He bad L.ir in his arms, kissing her wet eyes, her
-va. l 'iir' lips.
"' D)aisy-Daisy, my little, precious darling, my
brave, noble little girl, it is I'who am in your debt
jort ;. wondering doubts. You'll forgive me,
aisy ? Ar And you'll love me? You'll be my wife,
Daisy?"
But to this day, whenever Mr. Vivian wants to be
specially tormenting, he addresses his wife as "Miss
Elliott." Arid p( ple can't understand what it
: means, and even IMrs. Howard is mystified.
But be knows, and Daisy knows, and they are
content. M. R. C.

SLAUNCH11 OF TilE AGAMEMNON.
The armour-i -, -.t- :-i'. :. : .. Ag.amernnon, four
pF i ons, 6,"' borse-power, was launched
'D '-.,ii. 1 .. on the 17th Sept., in the pre-
sence of the Lords of the .:'.".. .'*', a large num-
ber of d0 il- ntlI r 1 visitors, and many ti,., -..
of the general public. 7'" vessel at once took the
water, the launch .. .:' one of the most successful
that has ever been r -.- at Chatham. .The handle
of the lever used was made from a piece of the tim-
ber '.-r.*- to the Dutch "., which was found
some time back at Chatham. :"'." Extension
*Works, and which f.ai.,id one of the fleet which
I came up the "!..,way to '2li::' Chatham Dock-
i yard more than two centuries ago. The Agamem-
i non is much smaller than the Inflexible, and repre-
sents ts !' rd :. to reduce the sizeof ironclads with-
out z'.iri.: seriously their power. This reduc-
tion '. :.-7''.- : '.- what it is by no means unim-
Sportant to recollect, diminution in cost; and when
it is further recollected that, an ironclad like the
In;.;h.. costs fully 800,000, reduction means a
great deal. The .Ai,.a-,c.io has, then, a length
of 280 feet, ':,wri with 325 feet for the Inflex-
ible, a breadth of 66 feet compared with 75 feet, and
a ,! -pWc. u? in tons of about 8,500 compared.
with 12,000 for the other vessel. She will carry
heavier armour, than any other vessel in the Navy,
i except the Inflexible, the two revolving turrets
SI ph.ied with iron 11 feet thick. The turrets,
which are.placed en echelon, will contain each two
i 88-ton guns, and are each of them revolving. Her
I power-of attack is not, however, confined to ord-
nance, ,"., she will be armed with Whitehead tor-
pedoes, for which she is provided with the means
of ejection from the 'i 7,1 u;-d i.:e- of her citadel.,
,:- y. that she is rather an unsightly vessel is
hardly necessary, but what she wants in appearance
is made up in r.' It is no exaggeration to des-
cribe her and *7..- -cir-vessel, the Ajax, as among
the most .UrmTh, l_ ironolads afloat.

o' 'u phases of the slavery tin -wstr are presented
in a telegram from New York. Intelligence re-
ceived there from '_.t ic;,o de Cru'- :: via Havan-
iab, states that the slaves employed on the planta-
tions in that ..ii' have demanded their libir'y,
which the masters have -..o ii.edl on condition that
en '" to Q 'rn'L': 9" .r for r7 for three
years. The slaves are, however, running away, and
the authorities have asked the Cp.'n-T-hn~ral to
advise them what measures should be taken in the
emergency. The same telegram states that a des-
patch has reached "..-*.'.' from '.!" *-t -
that the Spanish Government will ,v'p .*._u to the
Cortes to ..'.,.: t. the slaves in July, 1880, on
condition i. 1. year ;..i labour, for
which the slaves 1' receive wages.

Supplement to Royal Gazette, Tuesday, October 28, 1879.


THE AFGHAN WAR.
LONDON, Oct. 10.--A dispatch dated Simla, Fri-
day, midnipbt, says General Roberts was-before
Cabul on the 8th inst.
Generals Baker and McPheison have been de-
tailed in strength to attack the eemy,who have as-
sembled from the hills above Bafchissar. If these
forces can be brought into action, General Roberts
thinks the enemy will be unable to make another"
fight.
Massy, who was sent to cut off the retreat of the
Afghans on the roads between Bannian and Kobis-
tan, captured 78 guns Shalpur. The guns were found
in an abandoned cantonment and amongthem were
se ncen Amsl rongs.
The Standard's despatch from Benihessar, near
Cabul, dated at a late hour on the 8th inst., says :
"News has been received that the citadel and
palace of Balchissar, in Cabul, had been evacuated
by the enemy. There will probably be no further
resistance, and a peaceful entry will immediately
take place."
BIRLIN, Oct. 11.-The North German Gazette says
Russia has intimated her willingness to permit the
destruction of Cabul, but will not allow the destruc-
tion of Afghanistan.
CAMP BrrARE CABUL, Oct. 8.-Baker's brigade is
engaging the enemy on the hills Southwest of the
city. An oslinate Etrucgle is expected on the 9th.
The enemy expects reinfoi cements of three regi-
men's from Ghuznai.
LONDON, Oct. 11 -A Times' despatch reports
three Afghan regiments previously unengaged, with
remnants of other regiments and many of the city
people, are opposing the advance of General Baker.
The Afghans occupy a strong intrenched position
on hills west of Cabul. The engagement was con-
fined to artillery. The coming on of night prevent-
ed the infantry from ri.-.kin; an attack, but the
heavy firing continued tier dark.
SIMLA, Oct. 11.-General Roberts telegraphs on
the 10tb, from Serahsbngb, that during the night of
Wedrecday evening, the rebels confronling Baker
fled, abandoning twelve guns. The British cavalry
pursued for several miles but the enemy dispersed
in so many directions that only snall parties were
overtaken. Roberts intended to make a public en-
try into Cabul and take possession of Bala fHessar
on the 11th and 12th inst.
General Roberts telegraphs: We have now 110
Afghan cannon in our possession. There are some
80 more in Bala Hessar and a few in the city."
A private message from Simla states that Gener-
al Roberts is in possession of Bala Hessar, the cita-
del of Cabul.
LONDON, Oct. 18 -The Standard publishes a des-
patch dated Oct. 10, from the British camp before
Cahul, which says when the cavalry returned from
pursuing the enemy on the evening of the 9th, they
rode through Cabul, and that some of the shops in
the Bazar were open. Thq people were sitting about
and all was quiet.
.A despatch from Allabalthl to the News says:-
-"No quarter wa: .-iv.n t- amny one found firing
upon the British, and p'ii:'neis 'taken in the fight
were shot. The leaders of the mutineers are the
Ameer's most trusted friends'."
LoNDON, Oct. 13.-An Afghanistan special states
that the Ameer is si.icily guarded in Gen. Roberts'
camp It is L,',; to believe that he is not aware
that his army has taken up a position to oppose the
British advance. On the 6th, the day of the de-
feat of the Afgh,-n army before Cabul, the Ameer's
m~s-engcrs were passing to and from Cabul by a
road held by the Cabul troops.
General Roberts telegraphs that the Afghan
troops have been completely routed, and tribes as.
sembling to fig!t bar: returned home. The heavy
battery which i' co!. up 'ri b the Khyber col-
umn, he says, may go back to India, as the heavy
guns and howitzers originally presented by the Brit-
ish Govetnment to the Ameer are in our possession
complete.
SIMLA, Oct. 13.-Geberal Roberts' public entry
into Cabul look place ht noon yesterday. He was
accompanied by the Am.-er and his suite. The
B itish troop';s f all 'rmus !ined the road and the
Artillery fired a salute when the EritWih standard
was boistcd at the entranc-c to the city. The 67th'
Fegiment and 5th Goorkhas subsequently occupied
the Balassiar.
LONDON, Oct. 13.-A despatch from Allahabad to
the News says that Roberts and 'staff have visited the
late presidency at Cabul and portions which are
burned, but the greater part are still standing
tbh':ugh completely looted. The boli s of Major
Cavagnari and Dr. KTlly ca said to be buried be-
neath the debris and ch~,rrd logs at the northern
end of the Court yard. Search will be made.
lajor Cavagnari's listingg diary was found at the
Ameer's palace.
LoNDoN, Oct. 15.-A despatch dated Simla, Oct.
14, says that the cnu p at Ali Kheyl was attacked
by a larg. nuiu, br ,:? the neighboring tribes. The
attack was repulsed. Twenty-three Afghan corpses
were found, and it is believed many more were
carried off. The British casualties were only five
wounded.
LONDON, Oct. 17.-A Cabul despatch says three
AFbhan chiefs are .now imprisoned. The British
Military Commitlee will meet immediately.
SILA, .Oct. 17.-The Ameer did not accompany
General Roberts on his entry into Cabu!, pleading
indisposition. General Hill has been appointed
military Governor of Cabul. The Afghan regi-
ment which left Ghuznee to join the mutineers
were dispersed twenty-five miles from Cabul,


leaving twelve guns behind. Eighty-five guns and
mortars and a quantity of ammunition for artillery
and small arms were found in the Bala Hissar.
Afjhan Troops Di.persing.-The explosi. n in the
Bala-Hissar at Cabul is believed to have been
accidental. All the military stores collected by the
former Ameer, Shere Ali, were destroyed. Gen-
eral Sir Frederick Roberts has commenced an
investigation into the cause and circumstances of
tloutb)reak of Sept-nmber 3 The latest news from
Ali-Kheyl represents that the frontier tribes, since
learning of the fuli if Cabul, are dispersing. The
Journal de St. Petersbourg contradicts the statement
contained in a St. Petersburg despatoh to the Daily
News on the 18th inst., ".that England has informed
Russia that British infl ence must dominate the
foreign relations of Afghanistan." A despatch to
the Daily News from Lahore states that previous
information caused a surmise that the Bala-Hissar
had been mined by the Afghans. The Times' mili-
taWy correspondL'nt suggests that the explosion in
the Bala-hissar may have been the result of a
deeply laid plot.,,
STM9A',7)otk. 18.-The following details have been
received of the attack on the camp at Ali-Kheyl by
the Afghans on October 14: Four thousand Af-
ghans made a ldegpeiate attack upon the British
camp, but were repulsed at the point of the bayonet
leaving on the field 40 killed and 200 wounded, and
two standards, The British pursued them two
miles. The British loss was 2 killed and fourteen
wounded. The latest intelligence is -to the effect
that the combined frontier tribes are retreating.
In consequence of the threatening attitude of the
tribes in the Khurum Valley, reinforcements have
been sent, to the Shutur-i-Garden ,garrison. Gen.
Gough has reached Futteabad.
Military Movements.-A despatch from Jellalabad
to the Daily News says -" Advices from Cabul on
the 18th inst., report that the mutinous Afghan
regiments have been dispersed. The disarmament
of Cabul and the surrounding district is proceeding
The Ameer.will be practically in safe keeping unti
1


the inquiry into the massacre is finished. A Cabul
despatch to the Times says the fire in the Bala-His-
sar is nearly out. The powder magazine probably
will be saved. Over one thousand stand of arms
have been brought in under General Roberts' pro-
clamation. The Bala-Hissar probably will not be
reoccupied. General Roberts contemplates its en-
tire destruction.

AFGHANISTAN.
England's new Conquest to be settled as a semi-inde-
pendent State-the Nizam's Dominions taken
as a Model-Russia Resents Lord Salisbury's
Speech.
LONDON, Oct. 22, 1879.-A Cabinet Council met
this afternoon in Downing street, and the question
of the settlement of Afghanistan was discussed.
I am informed ov excellent authority that a plan
devised by the'Governor General of India in coun
cil was submitted to it and met with general ap-
proval. The plan was, in the first place, that
Afghanistan should not be annexed. Since the
mutiny the policy of annexation in India has sel-
dom recommended itself to the conservatives. The
old idea has died out that the secret of British
success in India is dependent upon the extinction
of sovereign rights among the native princes. Lord
Lytton's project is that Afghanistan shall in future
be placed on the footing that the Nizam of Hydera-
bad's dominions now occupy. The Nizam is bound
by treaties with England, in virtue of which be
nominates his own vizier, and the British resident
at Hyderabad is the effective minister. The gov-
ernment stipulates to recognize his .hereditary
rank and privileges so long as be remains faithful
to the terms of the treaties; .it guarantees that the
titular dignity, social prestige and private rights
of his family shall not be invaded. It gives him
entire control of the Nizamat, and pays him a
stipend, to be fixed by mutual agreement, for the
support of a subsidiary army of cavalry, infantry and
other troops, to be officered from the several Brit-
ish presidencies.
The future of Afghanistan -These privileges and
these guarantees are to be conferred on some
member of the present Ameer's family. It is be-,
lieved that Yakoob Khan's abdication will be
gladly accepted by the authorities at Simla. His
successor has not yet been designated. But this
much is certain,'that an English resident will be"
placed at Cabul, and that through him, the British
government will henceforth exercise a direct in-
fluence over the fortunes of the State. A strong
contingent of native and English troops will be
maintained in the country, commanded as at
Hyderabad. English officers will be exclusively
chosen. Two points i:ill remain doubtful-one is
whether the troops will be massed at Cabul or
scattered ',,, ugh various fortified posts; but it
is believed that ',.. occupation of Jelalabad and
Ghaznee suggests the latter course as the likelier.
The other doubtful matter is-whether the British
gt crnient will pay the troops directly from its
,'w. e[ IT-!': or will allow the Afghan ruler a fixed
stipend for their maintenance.
The Russian Press on Lord Salisbury's Speech,
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 22.-The Russian press
expresses great indignation at Lord Salisbury's.
allusions to Russia in his recent speech at Man-'
chester. The Official Messenger says it is unusual
for a foreign minister to speak thus of a friendly
nation, and that such language is not '.-.l. ia',d
to contribute to the maintenance cf peace and good
relations.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
EDUCATION.
MR. EDITOR,-A writer inr your last Gazette"
has had the boldness to allude to a term that every-
body seems afraid to use lest somebody's feelings
should be hurt, and that is amalgamation." But
since the ice is broken, I think we may as well
speak and write about it, as think about it. That
two races exist is manifest, and is it not better to con-
fer upon the subject with that idea than to attempt
to ignore it, for all the charity and logic of christen-
dom and all the Acts that the British Parliament
inay enact will never prove that black is white. By
hle-.ly admitting the distinction we can talk about
it without restraint, and express ourselves as our
minds may prompt us, always of course taking care
to be kind, respectful and polite. Your correspon-
dent speaks feelingly upon the subject of education,
and visits "Body No. 2 of the Trustees of Devonshire
College" with sharp reprobation for negligence in
the execution of the Trust and Duties. But I
would like to ask how much better has Body No.
1" fulfilled their part of the Trust, and I think
that they, as well as "Body No. 2," might wince
under his potent admonition ? However this was
not the object that induced me to advert to the
subject of education which is now operating on so
many minds in the hope of elaborating something
for the benefit of both races in the Colony. One
thing is clearly manifest, and that is, that the
School Bill now in force is not well understood
upon the point of amalgamation." Most people
are under the impression that schools aided by
public grants are public schools, but this is a grave
error, which the Attorney General has often at-
tempted in the House of Assembly to explain.
They are to all intents and purposes private schools
simply aided by pubiilic grants. As most of those
schools to their credit be it spoken are colored
schools, let us reverse the usual way of putting the
question and inquire "if the parent of a white
child has any right to claim admission for his
child into a colored school by reason of its being
aided by a public grant, against the wishes of the
Teacher ?" The answer under the Law is very plain
-certainly not. No more could the parent of a col-
ored child use a white school under the grant


against the volition of the teacher. The teacher in
either case is his own independent master to do
as he pleases, and no one can call him to account.
As to the expediency of a mixed school, I most de-
cidedly dissent from it on the grounds affecting
both sides as a general rule, though there may be
exceptions, and I believe there is one school at
least in the Colony that is an exception, a colored
school with a few white pupils, but it is entirely
at the discretion of the master whether to take
them or not, and whether to keep them or not after
taking them. It may work harmoniously, or it
may not; if it does, all well, but if it does not it
can be ended without trouble. I think the chances
are rather adverse to harmony. I doubt if a colored
teacher would like to be forced under a grant to
take an unruly white child, or to keep one that dis-
turbed the peace and good order and welfare of the
school that would prevail without him. My belief
is that each race would'prefer its own schools even
if they had the choice under a Public Grant, but
the Law does not give the choice except with the
teacher's consent, and therefore this ought not to
be presented as it so often is as an excuse by White
parents for not taking advantage of Schools aided
by public grants, specially for the purpose of enab-
ling them to have their children educated on mod-
erate terms. Are they determined to bring up
their children without education, and have they
no ambition as to their competitors taking the lead
in a work so necessary to their present and future
welfare, and to the well being of the community ?
By the Inspector's last report it appears'there are
but three Parishes receiving aid for poor white
children! Why will not parents avail themselves
of PRIVATE SCHOOLS,
WITH PUBLIC GRANTs.

From our Special Sporting Correspondent.
Here I am once again back in Bermuda and' ready
to enter on my work as your sporting correspondent
with renewed vigour, after the.freshening up I have
had in other more bracing climates than Bermuda;
for as an "injured mother," (my mother-in-law,
worse luck,) told you in her letter a few weeks
back, I have been seeking sport elsewhere.
But first let me thank you for sending me the
numbers of your paper during my alb.-ence, for it
is always a pleasure to me to read of all the doings
in our little island; and next let me remonstrate
with you for having allowed such rubbish to be
inserted in your paper as I have seen the last few
weeks. To begin with that letter front an "injured
mother," I must beg of you not to receive any com-
munications from my wife or her mother. I enclose
an advertisement which I should like inserted,
stating that I will not be responsible for the actions
or writings of my wife or any of her family, more
especially the mother-in-law.
I was very much pleased to see that the members
of the Hunt Club had met, and decided that the
hunt should go on as during last season, and I must
certainly congratulate those interested in it on hav-
ing again obtained the services of Lieut. Carpenter
as the Master, as I for one can testify, to the good
sport and pleasant finishes he gave us last year,
and I have no doubt he will do his best to make
the hunt equally attractive this year. Only do let
me beg of him to have mercy on us, and not give
us too large fences to negotiate, for we have not
all of us got horses that can jump anything they
are put in front of, and some of us--myself especi-
ally-are not as young as we used to be, and are
not quite feather-weights. I should like too to see
smaller fences for the sake of the ladies, who might
then be induced to come out, and as I flatter myself
I am rather a favorite with the fair sex, I should
be very happy to help our Master in that way, as
long as he promises not to spoil my sport nor to
peach about me to Mrs. T.
But I am not only wandering from my proper
course, but also encroaching on your valuable space.
The meeting seems to have gone off very well, and
I am sure that with the Hon. E. Harvey in the
chair and with several other well-wishers of the
hunt who I hear were present, everything must
have been arranged most satisfactorily, as indeed it
was. Last but not least it was decided to hold the
race-meeting at the end of November. This year's
meeting ought to be a very successful one, for I
hear that there are a number offnew horses in the
island, and some of them ought to give good ac-
count of themselves. After I have had time to
look about me a bit, I have no doubt I shall be-able
to send you a few notes on horses training, and
give you a tip or two as to the likely winners.
Now Mr. Lee, why don't you- get your sporting
correspondent a new nag this year; he is sadly in
want of one, as everybody knows-Bellows awfully-
out of repair and your opposite neighbor of the tower
declares he has not yet got his new ones from New
York, though he expects them with a fresh -mipply
of fireworks next steamer. What portions of a
horse you renew with fireworks I dont know-per-
haps Vulcan wants a fresh supply and could tell
me.
Before I lay down my pen I must give you an
account of last week's hunt, as far as I am able, for
of course I could not follow the whole way., The
meet was at 3 o'clock at the Flatts. I had tried
to give the Master a gentle hint that three was
rather early at present, but he is an ob.tinate young
fellow arid would not make any change, so that I
was nearly broiled before 1 reached the rendez-vous.
Here I found that I was a bit late, but a lady in a
carriage told me she had just seen them start and
the next minute I heard the well-known sound of
the horn, so I spurred on my old gee and followed
the track. It went along the road past Mr. Whit-
ney's, where I admired the new verandah which I
see that gentleman is putting up. Just beyond
this, a turn off the road took me into Mrs. Francis
Peniston's land where a little uphill canter brought
me in sight of the hunt.-Dear me, there are very
few of them, but one of them is a lady, that's good.
Now she gives us a lead over the first jump. a very
small one I am thankful to say, and then losing the
scent falls behind-(People always do seem to lose
the scent)-now gently down hill, waugh'crops,"
up hill and another jump, but this time there is a
gap which of course I go through; two more walls,
one with a gap and one without bring us out of
Mr. Edward Peniston's into Mr. ('ah u.-.- Penis-
ton's land. But those last two walls have quite ex-
hausted my poor old animal so I strike off on to
the road and ride quitely along to Smith's Church.
What's this! the 1I .st.- and the Doctor looking
for something. Oh! it is only a stirrup lost, now it
is found, and we go on. They say they have had
some rare good walls, and a nice stiff rail (at which
I shiver) and then they go off the road to the left
over a small rail, which I stop to take down before
following them. However they are not going fast
so I catch them up on Mr. Trott's land, and then
we have a few nicish walls before taking the road
to the North Shore. At Miss Tucker's we turn
to the left and get a very p],le-o .' run along the
side of the hills. I must say I shirked those for-
midable looking rails which the Rev. G. Tucker has
newly put up, and not even the glances of two or
three of my. admirers in a carriage close by, could
inspire me with sufficient courage to take my poor
old ,-.-''t at them.
But to return to our muttons, horses I mean. I
did not take that bullfinch th ,unh it look a delight-
ful jump, because at the wall before I and my horse
had nearly.parted company, but this is strictly
entre-nous. I was quite glad to think that was
the last jump and rode with a lightened heart to
the finish. I was a little way behind them,
and only just saw two l':'.:- take the wall


prettily together but could not quite make out
what became of the next. On cmi':in:.- up however,
I saw our tallest rider minus his i [\-t. .an-
other bold chasseur and his horse were affectionate-
ly hugging Mother earth-can that be Vivandier6,
Ah, she did not carry a flying Doctor to-day. But
seriously, are they hurt ? Not a bit of it,. else it
would quite have marred the pleasure of the
pleasant party at Mount Langton. As I ride
up I v ,Lnd.-r why the y-'un- ladies seem so impati-
ent, but there I catch sight of some scarlet jackets
and some instruments. Je comprends, mesdemois-
elles. I pay my respects to our hospitable host and
hostess, and then of course I soon have my card full.
Quickly up and down we go, on the light fantastic
toe, etc., not that mine -is very fantastic, for I am
a very sedate individual, but some of these young
people rush about like madcaps. But what will
Mrs. Tallyho say at my staying out so l:'ug; I
really must get home and hope for as pleasant a
day next week. TALLY-HO.

46TI REGIMENT.-Lieut.-Col, Bennett writes to
the Times from Bermuda, under date Sept. 18, as
follows :-" The following paragraph appears in the
Army and Navy Ga:et(e of the 23rd of last month :-
'It is currently reported that the 4f.th R egt., at
Bermuda, not being in a good state of health, is
about to proceed to Halifax, Nova Scotia.' As this
statement is calculated to-cause uneasiness to those
at home who have friends and relations in the
regiment, perhaps you will kindly allow me to in-
form them, through your columns, that probably at
no time in the memory of any one in ,the corps has
its health been better than it isa thank God, at pre-
sent. 3ver since our arrival in thes6 islands, in
1876, the health of men, women, and chil-Iren has
been excellent,-as good as, perhaps better than, we
could have expected at any other station, at home
or abroad. We hope to move very soon, because,
'in a few weeks, the regiment will complete the or-
dinary tour of service in Bermuda."-Army and
Navy Gazette, Oct. 11.
