G. 0. Whitney, Esq. :
DEAl SIR.-In reply to yours of October 10th
I received the Gazettes and saw my advertisement.
I called on Mr. Titus yesterday, who expressed the
opinion that you wanted more steamers to do much
good in strawberry growing, as all the strawberries
fore-; so that at the most you could only send one or
two days' picking by one steamer, and the rest of
the strawberries that would ripen during the other
twelve days would be wasted unless the local
demand was suffuici' t.
I would like to come by the steamer of the 15th,
as my time would be worth more in Bermuda than
it is here; but I have received a letter from Cali-
fornia which says that my order could not be ship-
ped before th. beginning of Noi'venmiir, and would
be at least a foriguht on the road. As it would
not reach here until about the 15th I have sent1
them word not to ship before the 12th of November,
so as to be delivered on board the steamer on the
27th or 28th. As foi" gri.q.:, vines, I can sell them
according to variety at from two to three shillings
each; of course, I can 1:,U tl,, 'n cheaper by the
dozen or hundred. If you tLink fig trees would
sell I would bring a hundred or two of the best
varieties; otherwise I only want one of each of
about four varieties. The fig is only fit for local
use, an must e ud mut ud h soon as ripe. I willbring
a thousand or two v.'t' thiei best raspberries, which I
can sell at a dollar and a dollar twenty-five a dozen,
i according to variety, or five or six dollars a hun-
dred. Figs I can sell at two shillings and sixpence
each. With regard to ,the Buseiau mulberry I
would like to know how it is growing in Bermuda.


Like most novelties it is hard to get at the truth
about it. As I don't understand much about mul-
berries I don't propose to bring any for sale, but
have ordered a few trees from California of two sorts,
one Spanish and the other a Japanese, and will
see what they amount to, and allow others to do so
before I sell any, as I can easily propagate them.
Outside of grapes my fruit-growing will be limited
and largely experimental, so that it will be quite
pro bono public, whether I intended it or not. I
intend to know exactly what can be grown in Ber-
muda before long.
I have seen Mr. Mapes twice since my last letter,
and he has already given me a rough idea of the
soils sent and what fertilizers are necessary, but he
would like a good deal more information, especially
about the crops grown on the soils, the manures
applied, and how long in cultivation, and thinks it
would be better for me to send him the data he re-
quires after I get down, and also to consult with
the Board of Agriculture. The conclusion reached
so far is that all the samples sent contain ammonia,
phosphoric acid, and potash in the proportions best
fitted for most crops, and that therefore the best
manure for your soil is really stable manure,
because that contains all necessary elements; and
that as a substitute for stable manure it would be
necessary to use a chemical manure as near like it
in its proportions of plant food as possible. Any-
thing that contains an undue proportion of ammo-
nia, like fish guano, merely acts as a stimulant, and
that is the case, of course, if you use phosphates
alone. One or two samples of the soils sent contain
a quantity of wood ashes, as though taken from
where a fire had been made. The samples from St.
George's and St. David's Islands are by all odds
the best. I never saw finer soil: it could be worked
as well by a hand-plough and cultivator as by
horse-power, it is so fine and friable. I shall see
Mr. Mapes again before I leave, and get further
particulars, as he was going this afternoon to show
the samples to several learned professors and get
their opinions, but I begin to think that he already
knows more about them than he has confided to me
so far; but I don't mean to jump at conclusions of
that sort too quick, so I shall suspend judgment at
present.
I have tried in vain to get further information
about the phosphate beds recently discovered in the
West Indies, but will before I arrive. That is very
important, because Sir Joseph Lawes, the great
English agriculturist, has given his opinion that a
pure rock phosphate, well pulverised, is really as
good as bone-dust.


Yours truly,


J. HART.


768 Communipaw Avenue,
Jersey City, N.J.,
October 30, 1883.
To the Editor of the Bermuda:Royal Gazette :
As I stated in niy last letter I will endeavour to
give you some information about strawberry grow-
ing down South. In this letter I have the disad-
vantage of not speaking from personal experience,
but mainly from what I hear from Southern friends.
It is true that I lived at Charleston during 1869
and 18T70, but no one grew strawberries then, nor
thought of such a thing ; it was the generally
accepted opinion that no good strawberries could be
grown far South ; they were said to be (the few
that were grown experimentally) flat and insipid. I
asked several people in Charleston whether it
wouldn't pay to grow them in winter and early
spring, and was laughed at. I believe some small
shipments were made from Florida about 1871 or
1872; they didn't amount to much. The first
really fine Florida strawberries I saw were shipped
in a new refrigerator from Federal Point in January,
1875; they were exhibited in Jersey City, and were
almost as good as we can grow in New Jersey. I
am indebted for information to a Mr. Adams, of the
firm of Damon & Adams, Church street, Charleston,
who, being a Jerseyman, tried to stir up the people
there on the subject, but in vain. At last, about
eight years since, a poor horse-car driver, who
occupied a house with some land attached, finding
it a hard struggle to live and pay rent (a good
many people in the same fix) conceived the idea of
ordering a few hundred strawberry plants from the
North. He planted them; they did well, and to
everybody's surprise bore a fine crop of fruit, of
which he sold several hundred quarts at a high
figure right on the spot. He realized enough to
pay his rent and buy a new suit of clothes. It was
a regular bonanza, and, feeling that he had struck
oil at last, he planted a few thousands more-the
news spread-next year he realized something
handsome, but, by this time, Thomas, Richard,
and Henry, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Thompson, &c.,
saw money in it, and in an incredibly short term of
years, very available acre between Line Street and
the Phosphate Works was planted in strawberries.
The railroads and steamships put refrigerators in
for the trade, and, by 1879, immense quantities
were shipped north ; for some years there was
money in it for everyone, especially for the rail -
roads, as they ran no risk, all risk from delays, &c.,
falling on the producer. Of course the Florida
growers, wh o ad got into it by this time, being
able to ship first, got the highest prices, but
Charleston came in a good .. '41i. and did wall till
the Norfolk Virginia growers were able to ship,
when the Charleston people would be left out in
the cold, then the natives would be able to buy the
last of the crop at their own figures, as low as five
cents a quart retail. There has been a complaint
for the last two years that the business was over-
done, as there are thousands of acres planted, and
the season is comparatively short; for the moment
the Jersey berries come into market, there is no
further sale for the southern berries, as I have not
yet seen any to equal those grown around NewYork.
The advantage the southern growers possess in
strawberry growing is the frequent communication
with the northern cities, they can pick every day,
and ship them off as soon as the crates are filled ;
everything depends on getting them into market
qtmick, no method has yet been discovered of keep-
ing them more than a very few days, that can only
be done by maintaining a temperature not exceed-
ing forty degrees. I think the advantage Bermuda
has in strawberry growing is that as fine berries
can be produced as the northern ones, and I am
certain they can be shipped a month earlier, at least,
than any from Florida. What you really want is
more frequent communication, and then, I have no
doubt, there would be a market at paying prices for
the product of several hundred acres, at least,
besides a good home market.
I remain, yours truly,
J. HART.

G. 0. Whitney, Esq. :
DEAR Sim.-I think the same ai yourself that it
is high time to notify the public what varieties I
intend to bring, but that I was not able to tell till
I received invoices from different nurseries, but I
got the last on Monday, and know exactly what I
have at disposal. I was quii pset by not being
able to buy vines in France, but I succeeded, after
writing to a number of Californian nurseries, in
getting every variety I wanted, though, in some
cases, I was only able to get small quantities. One
very choice wine-grape (the Carneenes de Medoc) I
was only able to get a dozen of, but I shall propa-
gate it extensively. I know, of course, what I
have grown myself and what varieties of American
grapes I could get, but I think it is most important
to grow the European varieties, as I believe there
is less danger of phylloxera in Bermuda than any-
where else, and it is easy to ship them to England
as well as the States. I don't intend to advertise
any but standard varieties that are most likely to
give satisfaction. I have bought small quantities
of a great number of varieties, some at a high.
figure, which I intend to test and propagate before
offering for sale. I expect by this time next year
to raise about ten thousand young vines, as I can
sell thousands of them in New York. As for the
Chinese peaches I think they will just suit Bermu-
d a, they are essentially semi-tropical, they wont
grow in the Northern States because they are very
easily winter-killed; they are not much good as
far south as Augusta, Georgiaas the fruit is very
liable to be nipped by frost, bur in Florida, Texas,
and southern California below the frost line they
produce immense crops every year, where the
common or Persian stain of peaches is no good ;
they are much sweeter and of better quality too
The Peen-To is a creamy white peach, flattened
like a tomato; the Honey peach is an oval, very
sweet; the Spotswood and Thurber run very large,
and grow a little further north than the others and
are later. All these peaches hold their leaves so long
as to be almost evergreens. One tree three years'
old at Pensacola, Florida, produced last year 1,200
peaches; it was of the Peen-To variety. I am
disappointed at not being able to get more figs. I
ordered a hundred ; I can only get twenty.four. I
want one-year-old trees but can only get two-year-
olds. The nurseries wont sell one-year-old trees if
they can help it, but if I canit get more I can,
propagate plenty for inxt ~t i*n, and I have still
time to look around. I ,.,i Iuy thein around here,
but they are very dear, a ;. n:-n _.-:* I as southern
socok: I ordered a lot of the lPt '-, lifolnia and
White Smyrna figs from California and all they
can send me is two of each ; but you don't want
i. -,. .'\- trees ; you can't market them ; they are
just fit to grow one or two of around a house. As
for raspberries I can get splended canes, and, after
mature deliberation, have decided to bring but one
variety in quantity-the Cuthbert-as that is : .~11
the finest raspberry out, and is the best for south-
ern latitudes; not only that, I can sell them
cheaper than the other varieties that are not so good.
I have ordered and am advised that I shall receive
. some new varieties of strawberries (of European or
Haulbois strain) from California ; I have to pay five
dollars a hundred for them, but if they will grow in
Bermuda-it won't matter whether they are shipped
late or early, they will bring aprice against every-
thing.
In my next I shall have something to say about
the California fruit trade, and remain,
Yours trulyN ART.

DISRAELI AND WINES.
How do you manage to keep so healthy ?" he
was asked by a dyspeptic fop. By dining off a
sardine," was the answer, and there was some truth
in this. To the end of his life Disraeli always ate
very sparingly when alone, and this enabled him to
keep a good appetite for public occasions, thereby
rebutting the presumption, which his pale face sug-
gested, that he was consumptive. In this connec-
tion some remarks of his about wine may be men-
tioned. Hard drinking was in fashion during his
youth, and at public dinners men who let the bottle
pass were hardly regarded as gentlemen. Disraeli,
who could never stand much wine, suffered a good
deal from this social usage, and he set himself to
study the demeanor of men who could drink deep
bourne was one of these, arid he gave Disraeli a
wrinkle by saying : You can drink if yo% don't
talk; if young talk muchyou needn't drink, fo~ peo-
ple will think you are drunk and let you alone."
It is obvious that the excitement of conversation
must co-operate powerfully with the fumes of wine
in making the brain reel. Disraeli having noted
this fact, went further into the subject by observing
that a man' s convivial propensities are always taken
for granted if he talks in praise of wine and appears
to be very critical about it. Some of his remarks
savoring of the most refined epicureanism may
therefore be ascribed solely to his temperate desire
to find excuses for not drinking. He was not a
judge of wines, though he pretended to be, and once
allowed himself to lay down the law about Bur-
gundy against the late Lord Seldon. A droll trait
in him was that he spoke enthusiastically about cer-
tain choice wines, but he never described any sort of
liquor, even gin. A reason he once gave for "say-
ing something kind about brandy in the presence
of a person addicted to spirits would have had a
Mephistophelean ring if the subject of the obser-
vation had not been, humanly speaking, irreclaim-
able : "I could not speak ill of his only friend."
"I should call brandy his enemy," interposed a
lady. "Ah, wellsa man hates his enemy the worse
for hearing him well spoken of," was the mild re-
tort.-Temple Bar.

LAW REPORT. I

Court of General Assize.
SPECIAL CRIMINAL SESSION.
Commenced 19TH NOVEMBER, 1883. t
A Special Criminal Session of the Court of Gen-
eral Assize was opened yesterday to try four or five
cases, which it was considered advisable not to let
stand over until Easter Term.
Anew Grand Jury was empanelled, of which Mr.
William George Frith was chosen Foreman. A
true bill was found against Robert Bedingfield for
shooting with intent to murder, and the Grand
Jury was released until to-morrow.
The second trial in the case of R. v. Albert
Walcher Eve was commenced, and the case for the
prosecution was not quite concluded at 5 p.m.
when the Court adjourned until this (Tuesday)
morning at 10 a.m.
We understand that there are three cases of
shooting with intent to murder, and a case of
stabbing which occurred on board the barque Osseo
at St. George's, which will probably be tried.'

ARRIVAL OF THE "-HIMALAYA," WITH
THE ROYAL IRISH RIFLES.
Shortly after 8 o'clock this morning the troop-
ship was signalled at the Citadel, and immediately.
people began to flock towards the wharves to have a
view of her. By the time she steamed up the
harbour there was a large number of spectators on
the wharves. She made a quick run up, and arrived
off the Dockyard before 10 o'clock, at which place
the band of the Rifles played "Rule Rritannia,"
and when the steamer was moored they gave GonD
Save the Queen." The Himalaya encountered
rough weather on the first day of the passage from
Bermuda, but afterwards it was pleasant through-
out. On yesterday, the wife of Sergt. McArthur,
of the Royal Engineers who had been ill, breathed
her last, and her remains were brought on to this
place. The Rifles are mostly young men, and
number about 800. There are also one officer and
31 rank and file of the Royal Engineers on board
who are to relieve the torpedo section of the same
corps now at this station.-Halifax, N.S., Recorder,
Nov. 6.

The Halifax Dynamiters--12,000 bad wanted.-
This morning, the dynamiters' application for dis-
charge under the habeas corpus act was argued be-
fore Judge Thompson, Motton, Longley and Lyons
appearing for the prisoners, and the Attorney
General and Pearson opposing the application for


discharge on the ground that even if there was no
charge in the warrant there was an offence under
common law for which the Judge could hold them.
Mr. Motton argued in reply to the Attorney
General, that from the evidence no intent could be
inferred.
Mr. Longley followed on the same side, arguing
that the evidence did not disclose any pretense by
a common law nuisance. It was the scope of the
evidence that these men had onlyin their possession
the ordinary amount of miners.
Judge Thompson said the warrant was entirely
bad, and no intent was alleged or proved, but he
thought there was some evidence of a nuisance, he
would, therefore, set aside the warrant and direct a
proper commitment to be made out for a nuisance
if desired. He fixed the bail at $6,000 each and
two sureties at $3,000 eaeh. The Judge thought
the Customs prosecution frivolous, and said any
Judge would direct the Grand Jury not to find a
bill,


Medal and Khedive's Star. His Excellency re-
turned to Hamilton the same day. The total num-
ber of troops on parade were 15 officers and 378
men.
His Excellency the Lieut.-General Commanding
inspected the Headquarters 2nd Batt. York and
Lancaster Regiment at Prospect on Thursday
morning last. The troops, consisting of four
companies, paraded in marching order and were
drawn up in line, facing west, on the Cricket
Ground. At 11 a.m. His Excellency, attended by
his Brigade-Major ind Lieut. H. L. Gallwey,
A.D.C., arrived on the ground and was received
with the usual salute, and proceeded to make a
minute inspection of the troops. Quarter column
was then formed and the Battalion marched past
twice in column and once in quarter column at the
trail, then deployed outwards and was put through
the bayonet exercise, which was again done in
"quick time." An advance in review order and a
general salute completed the inspection, and the
troops were marched back to camp. The follow-
ing officers were on parade :-Lieut.-Col. Simp-
son, Major Luck, Captain Horton (Adjt.), Captain
Lousada, Lieuts. Colhoun, Lowry, Howe, Maul,
Leigh-Lye, Kershaw, Qr.-Mr. Boulger, V.C.

[We copy from the Halifax Acadian Recorder,
Nov. 6th, the following extract from its account of
the horse Racing in that city.]
During the interim of those races a sweepstakes
was made, and a irid race took place, which
resulted in one of tWbest contests which ever took
place on those grounds.
The distance was a quarter of a mile, and the
starters were Lady Mary, Duffus' black pony, Tiny,
White Eye, Jones' black pony, and Sir E. Com-
merell's bay mare, ridden by the owner. They got
away to a fair start with White Eye to the front,
followed by Lady Mary, a head in advance of the
Admiral's mare, who was but a short distance ahead
of Tiny, while the ponies ridden by Jones and
Duffus brought up the rear. At the turn the track
was very muddy, and just here Admiral Commerell
showed his skill as a rider in a race. To escape the
mud White Eye and Lady Mary were ridden wide
at the turn, and the Admiral, who was riding a
good strong mare, took the pole, thus gaining such
an advantage that placed his mare on even terms
with White Eye. Just as Tiny reached the turn
she bolted into the corner, and Jones' mare went
into fourth place, with Duffus' pony close by. The
race up the stretch was an exciting one, and al-
though White Eye was somewhat tired from her
previous races, she made a game struggle with the
Admiral's beautiful bay, who crossed the line a
neck in advance of White Eye, with Lady Mary
three lengths off and but a half a length ahead of
Jones' pony, which had quite a lead over the other
black pony. Annexed is the summary:
Same day; sweepstakes; $ each; j mile ;
catch-weights; owners to ride.
Sir E Commerell's bay mare................ 1
Lieut-Col. Lane's blk m White Eye..... .... 2
Lieut. Stuart Wortley's ch m Lady Mary .... 3
A E Jones' black pony, and W S Duffus' black pony
ran unplaced, GB Walker's bay mare Tiny did
not finish,
This ended the afternoon's sport, which had been
most pleasant for those who were fortunate enough
to be present. The Admiral's victory was received
with rounds of applause, and Colonel Lane's success
also came in for its share of praise, though all took
compassion on Mr. Walker with the ill-luck which
he had with his mare. The afternoon's sport clearly
demonstrated that, although we are to lose many
lovers of the turf in the Munsters, while we have
such men as Admiral Commerell and Lieut. Col.
Lane amongst us,, there need be no fear of there
being any lack of racing.

Qg Lieut. Leigh-Lye, 2nd Battalion York and
Lancaster Regiment, met with a serious accident at
four o'clock on Thursday afternoon. This officer
was alone in his quarters at Prospect, and, in the
act of handling his revolver, which by some means
went off, the bullet passing through the left side of
the chest. On his calling for assistance, Surgeon
Barrett, A.M.D., and other medical officers were
quickly on the spot. The unfortunate officer is
progressing as favourably as can be expected.

Or A CRuisiNo RACE was sailed on Friday last
between R. B. Y. Club Yachts.. Only four yachts
started, viz., Psyche, La Belle Ville, Undine and
Emerald. The race was won by the Emerald. La
Belle Ville was second.

A SHARX CAPTURED.-While Henry Richardson
was fishing on Wednesday evening at anchor in
his fishing boat on the South-west Spit, some ten
miles from shore, lie suddenly felt a jerk on his
small fishing-line. On hauling up he discovered
that he had hooked a shark inside his snout. With
the assistance of two other men in the boat, suc-
ceeded in securing him by striking him on the
head with a hatchet, and holding him in tow some
three or four hours before taking him on board.
On Thursday morning he was landed at the Fish
Wharf, foot of Burnaby Street, Hamilton, and at-
tracted a number of spectators. Mr. N. E. Lusher
photographed the marine monster, copies of which
may be had at his studio, corner Front and Burnaby
Streets. Length 9 feet 2 inches, supposed to weigh
500 pounds,

A pamphlet called "The Bitter Cry of Outcast
London has roused the widest indignation. Lord
Salisbury's article in the National Review called
"Labourers' and Artisans' Dwellings" has made
the exasperation still more bitter, the Standard
declaring that such a paper from such a man is
worth more than a hundred party speeches. Lon-
don, long indifferent, has suddenly learned that
there is more poverty in its streets than in the
worst part of Ireland. In squalid dens the poor
herd, multiply and die. Parliament cannot help
them. The measures already passed are impotent.
Philanthropy is misdirected. Societies are formed
to help discharged convicts, while honest workmen
are left to starve and respectable girls are turned
from the doors of Magdalen asylums because they
lack the necessary qualification.
Lord Salisbury proposes State intervention. He
affirms that "public loans are justified by the in-
genious considerations of public policy, even if all
thoughts of humanity are cast aside." He thinks
the working population should be transferred to
places outside the town, where good houses should
be built for them. Dozens of other remedies have
been proposed by other writers. The excitement
is great and very blunt language is used. The
Pall Mall Gazette says:-" The man who lives by
letting a pestilential dwelling house is morally on
a par with the man who lives by keeping a house
of evil fame."
Thus at last the politics of the poor have come
to the front. The Liberals are frightened that the
Conservative leader has headed the proposed re-
forms. "Since the memorable days," says the
Pall Mall Gazette, "when Mr. Gladstone startled
Europe by his pamphlet on the Bulgarian horrors
no English statesman has launched a manifesto
likely to have such wide and permanent effects as
that of Lord Salisbury."

A GREAT INDUSTRIAL EXPOSITION.
The prospectus of the exhibition to be held in
New Orleans next year, and the preparations that
are under way, show a commendable determination
on the part of the managers to make the enterprise
what its name imports, a "world's industrial ex-
position." It is to be opened in December, 1884,
and continued until May, 1885. The plan is com-
prehensive both as to exhibits and exhibitors,
embracing all agricultural, mineral and industrial
products, and inviting competition from all parts of
the world. The exposition buildings are to cover an
area greater than that used in Philadelphia in 1876.
The enterprise has received the official stamp of the
National Government, and already a number of
Southern States have taken favorable action with
reference to it. The people of the South are
beginning to show a lively interest in it, and alto-
gether it promises to be the greatest exposition held
in this country since the Centennial. Let the
North unite with the South in making this a
national enterprise and a national success, and
thereby give a new impetus to Southern industrial
activity, the fruits of which will be shared by the
nation at large.
