The erection of this edifice, (under the able. su-
pervision of Philip Ness, Esqr., Colonial Surveyor)
was commenced in September 1876, and was hand-
ed over to the Commissioners, by Mr. Frauces Hiill,
the contractor and builder, on the 13th October
1879, compk-ted. The original design called for 40
feet from base to floor of Lautern-room. On the
completion of the Tower, under first contract, it
was found that the light would be obscured by three
hills, viz: Fort George, Musson's Hill, and Fort
Victoria. In 1878 the Legislature voted 200 for
raising the Tower 15 feet, and in 1879 the sum of
175 was voted for iron girders. .
The tower, which is of octagonal shape, is built
-of Bermuda stone, quarried on the land purchased
for the Light House. The width of the Tower at
base is 19 feet; width at top 13 feet 8 inches;
height from base to floor of lantern room 55 feet;
from floor of lantern room to top of burner 6 feet
8 inches, from top of burner to top of dome 9 feet
2 inches-making the height from the floor of lan.
tern room to the top of dome 15 feet 101 inches.

To the indomitable perseverance and untiring
zeal of Joseph M. Hayward, Esq., the people of
Bermuda are mainly indebted for this long felt de-
sideratum: inthe first place as a member of the
Honorable House of Assembly in carrying the
measure for its erection through the House in the
face in its early stages of a strong opposition;
and then as a Light House Commissioner and as
one of the Committee of the House of Assembly
in devoting much of his valuable time in inspecting
the work in its progress.
CHANGE OF ROUTE OF THE ROYAL nMAIL STEAMERS.
An official communication by the Post Master
General, London, to the Colonial Post Master, Ber-
muda, was received by the last Mail via Halifax,
announcing that on and after the 1st of January
next the Ounard Mail Steamers from Halifax via
Bermuda will make the Island of Jamaica their
terminal port instead of the Island of St. Thomas
Sas heretofore. By this new arrangement Mr. Cu-
nard will be at libertjy.to call at'Turks' Islands on
the voyage in each direction, if he is able to make
arrangements for such service with the Govern-
ment of Jamaica-.
This change in the terminus of the R. M. Steam-
ers route after leaving Bermuda will in the first in-
stance be much-felt by the inhabitants of these Is-
lands who have commercial and other relations

merara; but should the speculation about to be
entered on by an enterprising Gentlemen of Yar-
mouth, N.S., to which we refer elsewhere in this
issue of the Gazette prove a success, the change
will not be much felt.
i A NEW ENTERPRISE.-A Steam line between
Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Bermuda, St. Thomas, St.
Kitts, Nevis, Antigua, Gaudaloupe, 'Martinique,
and Barbados, and to return.
Mr. E. Franklin Clements, the proprietor of a
successful line of steamers between Yarmouth and
Boston, advertises in the Halifax papers, his inten-
tion to establish a line between Yarmouth and
the above named places, the "Alpha," the first of
the line to leave Yarmouth on the 22nd inst. She
is said to be expressly rebuilt and refitted for this
route and is classed at Lloyd at Al1. The saloon
and state rooms are in the centre of the vessel and
have every accommodation for comfort. The
boiler and engine rooms are separated from the
hold by air-tight bulkhead and excellent ventala-
tion is secured, so that no heat can possibly reach
the cargo. The size of the vessel is not given nor
rate of freight, &c.
Rates of passage (including state room and meals:)
are thus given :-
Yarmouth to Bermuda, $15 ; return Ticket $25
St. Thomas, 30: 50
Yarmouth to St. Kitt's Nevis, Guadaloupe,
Martinique and Barbados, $40, return ticket $70
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
* THE RECTORY, St. George's, Oct. 31, 1879.
DEAR MR. EDITOR,-On the night of the 28th
instant, when a severe storm passed over these Is-
lands, the Southern side of the roof of St. David's
Chapel was entirely unslated, and a portion of the
Churchyard Wall was also blown down. In-order
to prevent further damage to the building and its
interior arrangements, it was necessary to proceed
at once with the repairs. Mr. Thomas Hayward,
who had much to do \with building the Church 30
years ago, has kindly undertaken to superintend
the work. The estimated cost of repairs is 25.
Contributions are now being solicited on the Island
and some who have no money to give are willing to
give -their labor.
The inhabitants of St. David's will be very
thankful for any assistance from persons residing
elsewhere, and feeling that their case is one which
deserves the sympathy of all, I most heartily com-
mend it to the generously disposed.
I remain, very truly yours,.
FRED. J. F. LIGHTBOURN"
Contributions may be left at the Royal Gazette
Office, Hamilton, and with Messrs. -R. H. Higin-
botham, and J. T. Nugent, Church Wardens, St

DnER SIn,-The importation of cattle from the
United States has been prohibited in the Provinces
of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia, and Prince Edward's Island. Will the Le-
gislature of Bermuda wait until our cattle are in-
fected or follow the example of the Dominion
Government and-prevent the introduction of so
fatal a disease as Pleuro Pneumonia.

LONDON. Septr. 24.-The Press Association has
received for punhlication this afternoon, the follow-
ing telp!rtrni flom General Doran, dated Lundi
Kotal, the 15th inst., and forwarded by the Viceroy
of India this day :-
Taimur, Sowar, 6th Troop Guides, arrived late
last night from Cabul. He states he was, in the
Bala Hissar with Cavagnari and other officers on
the 3rd. About a.m., theTurkestani Ordal regi-
ments in Bala Hissar paraded for pay. 1)and Shah
pave them one month ; they claimed two and broke
out. They were lose to the Residency~ and an-
other regiment was with them., A- soldier shouted
"Let us kill the Envoy, and then the Ameer."
They rushed into the courtyard of the Residency
and stoned some servants. Guides opened fire with-
out orders from the British officers who were inside
the house. The mutineers then went for weapons
and returned in a quarter of an hour, during which
time the British officers might have escaped. On
returning the mutineers besieged the Residency,
and fiom commanding positions made the roof un-
tenable. The defenders made a sort of shelter
trench on the mud roof, and fired from the windows.
The city people joined the mutineers about 10 a.m.
About p.m. Cavagnari, who was in tihe shelter
trench, was stick by a rooechet bullet on the fore-
head, but only wounded. Jenkyns came up and
sent for- Munshi, to write to the Ameer, but Munshi
being too frightened to do so Taimur wrote stating
that the Residency was attacked and asking for
help. The letter was sent by Gholat-cubbi Kabulli,
an old guide., However, no answer came. Gholam
Nabbi afterwards told ,Taimur that the Ameer
wrote on the letter-" If God will I am just making
arrangements." Cavagnari was helped into the
Residency, and attended by Kelly Jenkynsthen
sent another letter to the Ameer stating that Cav-
agnari was wounded, and demanding speedy assist-
ance. It was sent by a Hindoo, who was cut to
pieces at once. About three p.m., Hamilton sent
Taimur with a letter promising six months' pay,
by that time th"mutineers had wrecked the roof of
the Residency.' Taimur went armed into the mid-
dle of the crowed, who disarmed him, bnt his life
was saved by an officer. Taimur informed them
that he bore a promise of six months' pay. They
threw him down from the Residency, and he fell on
the roof of a lower house, and became insensible,
He was robbed of all be had, and on recovering
was taken before General Karim Khan, -who com-
manded the mutinous brigade. Karim Khan was
sitting on a bed surrounded by fifty or sixty men,
On Taimur telling him that he would get six
months' pay, he replied that he was helpless, and
ordered him to be confined. Taimur personally
knows nothing of what occurred after be left the
Residency, which was lust being set fire to. A
wounded havildar of the Ameer was brought tc
the house where Taimur was confined, and in re-
turn for his extracting a bullet allowed him to es-
cape about daylight next morning; He then weni
to the Residency, and first saw the corpse of Ham.
iltonlying over a mountain gun which had been
brought up. The troops there said that Hamilton
had killed about three men with his pistol and two
with the sword before he was shot. The body was
stripped and cut to pieces, but not dishonored. A
shdrt distance off lay the body of Jenkyns similar-
ly treated. Taimur did not go into the Residency
but was told that Kelly was lying dead inside and
that Cavagnari was in the room among the wound-
ed, when the building caught fire and fell in on him
His body had been discovered when Taimur left
Cabul, but the other three officers were buried in a
'garden about one hundred yards from the Residen-
cy. Taimur believes that no other defender of the
Residency escaped. Gholam Nubbi, to whom Cav.
a gnari gave the letter, is alive and in Cabul, and
still has the letter, with the Ameer's answer on it
The Guide Sowars who were cutting grass are it
Cabul in the Mean Khana Mahalla, but are pre.
vented from leaving. '1 he grass cutters are in safe.
ty with Sirdar Yahya Khan. There are no troops
on the road from Cabul, nor are there any in Jellala.
bad or Dakka, nor, as far as Taimur knows, are any
coming. Daud Shah did his best to stop the mu.
tiny, having been sent by the Ameer, but he was
pulled off his horse, stoned, and wounded with
a bavonet. 4He was alive but in a dangerous stat(
whex Talmur left. On the afternoon of the attack
Sirdar Ya-bya and Mustaffa Habebulla also cameto(
try and stop the disturbance, but were fired at and
forced to retire. The above statement has beer
rather- hurriedly taken, so as to allow of Taimur's
proceeding to Peshawur, but it is substantially cor.
reet. He isa very intelligent man, and gave
clear account of what occurred.
The arrival of the gorgeously-costumed new Chi.
nese professor at Harvard, Ko Kun Hua, with hit
wife, five children, and interpreter, has created som4
stir in drowsy Cambridge, says an American cor
respondent. The establishment of the profes'-orshil
is due to the efforts of Mr. Francis P. Knight, a
present United States Consul at New.Chwang
China. Mr. Knight, when here in 1877, propose&
to President Eliot the establishment of a professor
ship of Chinese at Harvard, urging that it would b<
of great advantage to young men intending to en.
ter commercial life, and who would be likely to en
gage in business with the East, to have a familiar.
ty with-the Chinese language. President Eliot tool
counsel with Boston merchants engaged in th<
China trade, and then wrote to'Mr. Knight stating
his harmony with his views. Subsequently the
necessary money for a limited trial of the plan hav.
ing been raised by private subscription, the Harvarc
University Corporation authorized Mr. Knight t<
engage a competent instructor. The written agree-
"ment under which Professor Kun Hua comes was
drawn up at Shanghai, May 26,1878, between Mr
Knight, as agent of the President Kun arid Fellows
:of Harvard College and Professor Hua, who was
the sub-prefect of Ningpo. According to its term
be iso teach Mandarin Chinese for three years a
200 dois. a'month, and was to receive a first class
passage from Shanghai to Cambridge for himself
and family. It is proposed to teach Chinese tfo
'commercial ,purposes alone. Nothing has been
'said about studying Chinese literature as a brand
of Education at Harvard. At the opening of the
fall term complete arrangements will be made, and
- ambitious young men can add another tongue ti
their list of linguistic accomplishments.
Too CLEVER TO LIvR.-John Barretier is declar-
ed to have been master of five languages when h<
was only 9 years of age. In his eleventh year hi
published a !earned letter in Latin, and translated
the "Travels of Rabbi Benjamin," from the Hebrew
lato the French. Four years later the fame of his
learning and writings attracted the notice of th(
King of Prussia, who sent for him to court. W hen
passing through lialle on his journey, he so distin-
guished himself in his conversation with the Pro-
fessots of the University that they offered him thE
degree of Doctor in Philosophy. The whole -uni-
versity Was delighted and amazed with his wit and
knowledge, and on his arrival at Berlin the King
honored him with peculiar marks of distinction
declaring that such abilities properly cultivated
"might exalt -Barretier in ten years to be the great-
est Minister of State in Europe. But the young
philosopher was not dazzled with such prospects
and retmned to Halle to pursue his studies. His
health unfortunately gave way in his 19th year, and
alfer lingering for 18 months he died; another il-
ustration ot the expression, too clever to live
13,00L D TRANSFUSING.
I Remarkable Experiment with .1Milk as a Substitute.
As long ageB as 1859, in a story entitled the "Lifted
Veil," George Elliot tells of a wicked woman whose
agency in a mysterious murder was exposed by trans-
fusing blood bito the heart of the just deceased victim,
who revives for a few minutes under the experiment
and denounces the murderer. A simple way of effect-
ing this purpose has been revealed by,some recent ex-
periments of Prof. Thomas, of New York, whose ob-
servations on the intravenous injections of milk have
attracted the genrad the general attention of the medical profes
sion. In one of Prof. Thomas' cases the patient was
moribund when the first injection of warm milk into
her veins was made, and the unanimous opinion of the
assembled physicians was that death was inevitable.
Lile was prolonged six days by means of five injec-
tions, varying in quantity from 8 to 15 ounces. From
this and other cases, Dr. Thomas concludes that the
injection of milk into the circulation in place of blood
is a perfectly safe and feasibleoperation, easier to per-
form than transfusion of blood, and of equal efficiency
in cases of exhaustion from profuse and repeated he-
morrhages. These experiments are in curious agree-
ment with those of Dr. Wulfsberg, performed on rab-
bits and dogs in the laboratory of Prof. Marine, at
Gottingen. After bleeding the animals until all
movements of respiration and circulation had ceased,.
Dr. Wulfsberg injected milk into their veins. The
operation was instantaneously followed by rythmical
contractions of the heart, and finally by re-establish-
ment of respiratory movements, and, what is more
singular still, upon their cessation, after the stimulant
had spent its force, life movements were excited again,
by repeating the injection. Some of the moribund
doks even barked under the influence of the milk. The
microscopic relations of this subject would be of no
interest to the general reader, but the fact that life
movements, whether by excitation of the nervous cen-
tres or by direct irritation of the heart, can be restored
after they have ceased, in a manner at once so simple
and so readily applied, is of the utmost practical im-
A NOVEL YACHT.-A contract has just been con.
eluded in London between Captain Kazy, acting
on behalf of Admiral Lesovsky, the Russian Min-
ister of Marine, and Mr. Win. Pearce, of the firm
of John Elder & Co., for the construction of a new
yacht for the Czar to replace the Livadia, lost off
the Crimea last year. The yacht is designed by
Admiral Popoff, but differs from the ordinary Po-
poffka" system chiefly in not being circular. The
length of the vessel will be about 230 feet, the
. breadth 153 feet, the depth about 42 feet, the gene.
c ral draught 6 feet 3 ins., the maximum 16 feet.
The yacht will be propelled by three sets',of engines
' having a collective indicated horse power of 10,500
the expected speed being 15 knots. The sarews for
. propulsion are to be wholly immersed and to ex-
p tend below the bottom of the vessel. The cost, ex-
elusive of furniture, decorations, and outfit, will be
about 200,000. It is probable that the launch of
t the ship some time next summer will be celebrated
. by the presence of several members of the Russian
i Imperial family.
1 am informed that Switzerland has been visited
s this year by 1,400,000 strangers, a number which
L exceeds by several thousands the average of the last
four years. Of this total one-fifth are said to be
English, Germans, and Austrians, five-tenths Rus-
sians, one-twentieth French and Danes, three-twen-
tieths Americans, and other nationalities one-tenth.
* German visitors have increased, but the English has
t diminished, on the other hand, one-half. The for-
mer, 8350,000, stayed only a very short time, and it
* is believed spent no more than 50f. each. Theremain-.
e der are supposed to have spent at least 200f. each,
which makes a total of 9,100,000 left in the coun-
try this year by foreign tourists. The part of Eng-
* land in this voluntary tribute, according to the
foregoing computation, is 1,820,000; but if to this
Amount be added the expenditure of English fami-
lies temporarily domiciled in Switzerland and of
s children sent here for their education, the sum total
would probably be found to be over than under

authorities say that the loss of life by the floods in

the floods in the province of Murcia, Spain.

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Tuesday, November 4th, 1879.
For the Royal Ga:etle.
The failure of the Legislature to pass, during
the last Session, any Liw for the providing of Pub-
lic Schools was the result of over anxiety, and ill
directed zeal. The first produced the desire to
have the new Law too widely different from the
present one and the second sought to arbitrarily
proportion special shares of the money, or, to fix,
what the ever changing state of the census deter-
mines, as nature's honest truth, ought on the con-
trary, to remain variable.
The experience of the past, during which, the
Colony has paid in larger proportion, and the
parents have been expected to pay in smaller pro-
portion, is clearly against obliging the parents to
pay anything during the future. To the fact, that
the parents hate been expected in the past to con-
tribute a part, may be laid the charge, that thereby
the pariuts have been t(-mpted to connive at the
nou-attendaucc of their' children at the public
schools, and before any over nervous -ensibility
puts this assertion aside with an affected "howV
horn id," examine this : partial payment by parents,
presupposes extra economy, and actual self-denial,
to that cxa,:t proportional extent, that the weekly
sum for .rho,:.liug bears on the income of a working
man's family. \1 here children are numerous and
there iQ only one bread winner, the proportional
sacrifi-.-e is so heavy, that men ci'cunistanced, as
those, who veiy pr.-perly constitute, the Legisla-
ture, can have n:, knowledge of, unless they make
this question of proportion a study.
It was argued under the old Act, that unless the
parents p:,id suffi,.iently to excite their intercst- in,
they would care but little for the public s.-hioels;
but now it. is but iea,.onalble to expect with the
attempt to compel parents to educate their chil-
dren, the benefit of their no longer being expected
to pay anythlinu whatever to the teachers, shall be
as firmly secute:d.- The loyal gratitude of every
publi.:- -c.hool pupil, will then .e dler.ly due to the
country, and public ,dueatirnu will have' inually
failed, if in softening imann res, it does not cultivate
The success, of a new school system, might pro-

To the Editor r.f tl EBr,.,,uada R,.',l Gazette.
DEAR TMi. Er-iTas,--I know you will expect
me as usual to give you an account of last
week's 1 Lut but I fear it will be a very poor
one, if iLtl:- d it may be called an account at
all. TLe fa,.t is, my Dear MIr. Lee, between-
you 'in.d iul, that my mother-in-law and I
have not been on very smooth terms lately, so
when Lad weatli:r prevented me from going out
on Thursday (for I am a prudent man and don't
care tno intmue out in the rain,) old Mrs. X. was
deligltc.l, and came to my house-on purpose-to
grin at me and rub her hands; however when a
friend of mine dropped in and told me the hunt
was put off till Friday, great was her dismay.
-IHow ver, on Friday when I was already to start,
I was mu. li surpi ised to see my little carriage at
the door, and my nag standing' quietly in harness.
SAs I walked into our sitting room to ask Mrs. T.
the ureaning' of all this, and to ring the bell for the
boy, I encoumiterc-d my mother-in-law, looking so
grim and angry that I forgo-t to be angry at her
intrusion, and almn-'st wished I had not gone in;
but I soon recovered from this temporary weakness,
and ailaled for the boy to saddle my horse. "3So
such tl.ing, sir !" .,hoautd Mrs X.: "you're not
going to ride! you're just gyiig to drive Susan to
the finish foir a change, you heartless wretch you"
-and ti n she called me such a lot of horrid names
and was so virtuously indignant that shall I
confess it-I gave in. I never should have thi.:ught
that any woman could frighten me, but really Mrs.
X. is too much for a man of my week temperament.
Beide - you know, I am not such a bad fellow at
bottom after all, and the sight of my wife's pale
face, and her terror at her n,.ther's violence, were
not without their effect on me; so I exchanged
my hunting accoutrements for more sober garments
and presently put Mrs. T. tip on the front seat.
In a forgiving and magnanimous spirit, I even
L offered her mother a seat behind which she accept-
" d, and we drove off.
I thought -there was going to be a tolerably big
hunt for there were two and a half ladies and fonr
gentlemen at the meet at the Yacht Club as we
drove past. At the top of the harbour I pulled up
to let Mrs T. see the throw off I thought the
hunt was close behind us, but it was one and a half
of the ladies and a gentleman going along the road-
I thought this a great shame (though I often do it
myself.) At last the home sounded quite close,
and then we saw the four horses take the wall out
of the road into Mr. Trimingham's grounds very
prettily. I then drove quietly on, and we reached
Mr. Gosling's field just in time to see three of the
riders jump the big wall into it; and galop across
it and out of sight in fine style.
Now my Dear," said I to Mrs. T. we'll drive
quietly on to the finish."-I expected Mrs. X. to in-
veigh against the folly of jumping walls but to
my surprise she said it was rather pretty to see
them, though when she saw me grin at this, she
gave a little growl, and remained silent for the
rest of the day.
There was a goodly gathering at Mount Pleasant,
where Mr. and Mrs. EugeniuslTarvey received us
most kindly., There were three nice green hurdles
arranged in a straight line in their pretty grounds.
The hunt was somewhat late, but pleasant conver-
sation made the time pass quicker, and at last a
young lady exclaimed: Here they come 1"-
True, it was they, but only three! However they
took the jumps very well and I heard them say
they had a very, pretty run and some really nice
It occurred to me as I sipped my Claret. cup thai
if Mr. Lee would only give his correspondent a
horse I might have been riding and Mrs. T. would
have driven herself. However I don't intend to
bring her to the finish very often, for it not only
prevents my riding, but I can't flirt with the pretty
girls when I have such sharp eyes watching me.
However I have encroached quite enough on your
space and will lay down my pen till next week.
For the Royal Gazette.
DEAR MR. LEE,-I noticed a few weeks back that
a correspondent to your paper signing him or her-
self Ursa Major" proposes that another correspon-
dent who signed him or herself Beginner" should
if he so thought fit, occupy the post of Aunt Sally"
during the ensuing winter months. Now as I hap-
pen to be the veritable Aunt Sally, and am descend-
ed on my Grand-mother's side from the ancient
family of Aunt Sally's, I cannot help sending you
these few lines to remnoutrate in the gentlest man-
ner possible against such a step, for I do not feel
at all inclined to surrender my post either to Be-
ginner" or "Ursa Major" or even to the great
Tally-ho" himself. I don't believe the whole par-
cel of them could keep their pipes in as long as 1
have done, and I should quite sink into the ground
'with shame if I saw any body pretending to be and
setting themselves up to be what they are'not and
then getting their pipes knocked out time after
time by any bumkin who takes it into his stupid
head to have a shot at them. Indeed Mr. Editor I
could not stand it-I think I .should be obliged to
leave Bermuda for ever-never to come back again.
Now that I have begun I can not refrain from
saying a little more as to what I think of your va-
rious correspondents, and thougli my friends have
always laughed at the opinions I expressed about
them and are sure to do so again yet I must have
my say out, and every one knows that we old wo-
men can't keep :our tongues still [when once they
are set in motion.
I think it very hard of "Ursa'Major" to go and
run down poor Beginner" in the way he did. It
was, an uncommonly foolish thing. of the latter to
show his ignorance so very plainly to the public but
he (or perhaps she) evidently wi -Led to gain some
knowledgee vud not having any other means of ob-
t:iiuing it resorted to your paper which, as every one
knows is always brimming over with information,
and also being aware the W. A. M. had written
some very able letters about the constellations, es-
pecially on the matter of Vulcan, he no doubt
thought that W. A.M. might answer his questions
and so give the information required. His resolve
was a laudable one and I admire Beginner's bold-
ness in coming thus projmineutly before the public.
But mind you I don't stick up for Beginner-his
beginning is certainly as rash as it is feeble and I am
convinced that he or she must be a very foolish young
person-he certainly is a novice and as ignorant in
the ways of the world as he is in the movements of
the planets. All I can say is that I hope he ob-
tains the information he asks for and I really think
that W. A. M. who appears to be the only one of
your correspondents who knows anything about
the subject and who can tell the difference between
a star and a cart-horse, migl t give him a little help.
But just let me catch Beginner" in the post of
Aunt Sally. that's all! !
"Ursa Major" I must praise not a little for the
kind intention with which he wrote his letter-
namely to warn the rash Beginner from drawingon
himself the wrath of Vulcan and so escape being
sat upon by that planet as he confesses he himself
Was; but after having thus taken up poor Begin-
ner in his arms as it were I think it a little hard to
turn round and sneer at him as he does toward the
end of his letter. The warning however came too
late, for Vulkan has taken up his pen again to give
the well meaning Beginner a gentle slap. I don't,
think Vulcan's production comes up to his last
year's writings and to call Beginner a is to say
the least of it VuloAR and not VulcAN'. I myself
think that that planet is a very badly used one and
it is a great shame for everyone to set at him in the
way they do. He has given us a great deal of
amusement for which we should be grateful and if
it pleases him to be eccentric and rather flighty
why let him. If I was his mother I would not let
him go out alone-I'd get a nurse or a governess to
keep him in leading strings till he had reached the
years of discretion.
One more word of warning to any who may at-
tempt to step into my post of Aunt Sally.-I shall
be very pleased to see any of my friends who care
to come to my "at homes" but any who are rash
enough to occupy my post I will not spare, andI
promise them if they do I will do my best to knock
out their pipes for them myself..
Your's very truly,
RETURN OF SECEDERS TO THE ESTAB.
After eleven years secession the congregation at-
tending St. Paul's Free Church of England church
at Wheelton,near Chorley, on Sunday last relturued
to the Established Church, and the building which
they erected for themselves at the time of their se-
cession from the Parish Church of Heapey has been
landed over to the vicar, the Rev. O. de Leyland
Baldwin. The circumstances of the secession were
somewhat peculiar. The then vicar of Heapey, the
Rev. J. Fisher, had become too infirm to fulfil his
spiritual duties, and it was necessary to nominate a
clergyman to perform the parochial work. The
decision was partially left to the congregation,
whose choice fell on the Rev. J. Shaw, L.LD., who
was brother-in-law to Mr. T,"dd, an influential
manufacturer in the parish, and who had formerly
held the curacy. The vicar, however, declined to
nominate Dr. Shaw to the bishop. This produced
intense feeling in the district, the result being that
between 800 and 900 of the congnveration seceded
en masse, For a time they worshipped in an empty
room of Mr. Todd's mill, the Rev. Dr. Shaw con-
ducting the services. Eventually the handsome
structure of St. Paul's Free Church wAs built, and
has been used till now by the seceded. Church peo-
ple who have, it may be stated, been most success-
ful in their mission. For about three years the
church has been under the charge of the Rev. J.
Trotter, who has just resigned in order to accept
a missionary charge in Bermuda. The, congrega-
tion deemed the circumstance a fitting one to make
their peacewith the present vicar, and the Church
of St Paul's, Wheelton, will henceforth be a chapel
of ease to the Parish Church of Heapey.-Liverpool

NEW YoRK, Oct. 25.-Further details of the
burning of the steamer Nuena Pajaro state that the
engineers were suffocated to death at their engines.
The heat of the fire was extreme, and whea it
reached the petroleum and other inflammable ma-
terial, of which the cargo consisted, a tremor seemed
to go through the entire length of the main-deck as
if the vessel was bursting asunder from some terri-
ble pressure. Men were dreadfully burned as they
stood at the pumps, and all abandoned them in the
wildest terror and rushed for the boats, which were
swamped as fast as lowered. The sea was black
with human beings who jumped overboard to escape
the flames, but with a few others were saved by
t clinging to pieces of the vessel. The steamer was
burned to the water's edge and sank. -'

Reasons for a Di.soohldtio of Parliament-Jealusy of
Rus.,iIIn Interyerencein the Quarrel of China and
LONDON, Oct. 28.-The Daily News founds its
theory ofthecomtemplated dissolution of Parliament
before the end of the present year on the allegation
that the results of the recent new registrations are
very favorable to the liberals. As these registrations
do not take effect until the beginning of 1880, an im-
mediate dissolution would deprive the liberals of the
benefits thereof. The Daily News says :-"The
probability of such a resolve is increased by the
tact that the Right Hon. R. Assheton Cross, Home
Secretary, has telegraphed to the Philosophical
Institution of Edinburgh postponing his lecture
before it on the ground that a series of Cabinet
councils will be held next week, at which his pre-
sence will be indispensable. It must be a sudden
change of purpose on the part of the government
which demands so sudden a telegraphic postpone-
meat of an only recently announced engagement."
Hence There is significance in a. statement of the
Daily Standard which says :-"We understand that
the corvette Comus and the sloop-of-war Albatroes
will proceed to the China station as soon as they
are ready for sea, in view of the pending rupture
between China and Japan and the friendly attitude
of Russia toward China." The foreign press is
loud in its criticism of the Ministry. The Paris
Journal des Debats condemns Lord Salisbury's op-
timasim touching an Austro-German alliance, and
says:--"The result will be European complications
which will.leave Austria without allies confronting
all the Christian nations of Eastern Europe, whose
legitimate ambitions she seeks to stifle for her own

of disintegration rather than an attempt to set up
a strong central government at Cabul. He points
to the fact that Herat, Candahar and Afghan Turk-

LoNDON, Oct. 27.-Adolphus Rosenberg, charged
with libel by Mrs. Langtry and Mrs. Cornwallis
West, was summoned to the bar of the Central
Criminal Court soon after it opened this morning.
The proceedings were very brief. The trial had be-
come so notorious that the prisoner was curiously
scanned by the spectators, but few of the parties to
the case were present when the clerk bade Rosen-
berg rise and Justice Hawkins proceeded to address
him. The Judge's remarks were caustic and severe.
The same earnestness which won him fame in the
Tichborne trial marked his observations on the
prevalence of libel and the instant need of repress-
ing it. He expressed his abhorrence of the offence,
and wished that the law empowered him to impose
a heavier sentence. The printers, be said, were
much to blame. They were both men of respecta-
bility, and the high commercial esteem in which
their house was held had made Rosenberg's libels
the more mischievous and had aggravated his
crime. Sir Henry Hawkins did not believe that
they knew the nature of what they printed; but
this they ought to have known, and for this they
were legally responsible. It was scandalous that
such imputations, such slanders, should go forth
from the press? of an eminent firm, and, though not
bearing their imprimatur, boulla gnin moral weight
from their excellent reputation. The Justice then
sentenced Rosenberg to eighteen months' imprison-
ment on theindictment charting him with publish-
ing defamatory libels against Mrs. Langtry and to
six months' imprisonment on each of the inlict-
meuts charging him with similar offences against
Mr. Cornwallis West and Lord Londesborough,
and at the expiration of his term of imprisonment
he is to be bound over in his own recgc.anizances in
the sum of 1,000 for good behavior for eighteen
months. Justice Hawkins said he regretted he
could not impose a sentence of hard labor upon the
prisoner. These sentences were concurrent and
therefore the whole term of imprisonment will be
only eighteen months. The printers were held in
their own recognizances of 1,000 to come up for
sentence when summoned. They were also held
to the offer they imde on Saturday to pay Mrs
Cornwallis West's costs in the trial.

TRADE WITH BRAZIL.
We stated the other day that an eminent firm of
steamship owners have unler consideration the
placing of a line of steamships on the route between
Halifax and Brazil. Canada offers a bonus of $50,-
000, and the Montreal "Gazette" is informed that
the Government of Brazil has '-onsentedl to gr.;nt a
like bonus. The distance from Pernambuco and
Rio is shorter to Halifax than to New. York. There
is a good trade to be done. The "Gazette" points
out that there are many descriptions of goods now
imported by Canada from-or through the Unite]
States which might better be imported from Brazil.
For instance, out of a total of 1,969,00)I lbs of coffee
imported into Canada, we obtained 1,587,520 lbs
from the United States; of 110,9SS,952 Ibs of sugar
imported, Cani'.a got 45,199,335 lbs from the Uni-
ted States ; of 5,876,000 ft. of mahogany and rose-
wood, 5,827,000 ft. came to Canada via the United
States; of 458,775 lbs of India Rubber, 458,712 lbs
were bought in the United States; of 8,881,463 lbs
of tobacco, 8,852,397 lbs were obtained from the
United States. In a word, not pound of the chief
exports of Brazil is shipped direct to the Dominion.
The Gazette thinks that the experiment of a
line of steamships is assur.'dly worth while making,
in view of the possibility of direct trade which exist.
We can supply Brazil with many of the products
she imports, and we can offer a market for her sta-
ple exports."-Ualifax Morning Herald, Oct. 25.
