THE CAPTURE OF BARBADOS.
The following interesting account of the
capture" of Barbados by H. M. S. Co-
mus" is taken from the Demerara Chron-
The affair was reported on the arrival of
the mail before last, but as no confirmation
of it could be obtained, we thought the af-
ffair a "hoax." It has, however, turned
out to be quite true.
The attempt originated in a discussion at
dinner between the General at Barbados
and the Captain of the Comus." The
challenge was then thrown down by the
General as related below. Sunday was to
be considered a dies non.
The capture ot the island of Barbados-
in mimic warfare-has been the talk here
since ihe rows arrived. It seems that Cap-
tain Atkinson, of H. M. S. Comus, informed
Major General Pearson, Cammander of the
Troops in the West Indies, that he could
capture arnd devastate the island single-
handed ; and that thereupon he was chal-
lenged to do so between Thursday, the 24th,
anrd Monday, the 28th ultimo. The attack
was managed within a prescribed area; and
and when .the man-of-war departed the ar-
tillery authorities of the island placed them-
selves on the defensive. All through three
long nights, patrols were out and pickets
watched and waited in vain; and all un-
known to them at 2.30 a.m. on Monday,
the 28th ult., a dark and murky night, they
were surprised and placed at the mercy of
a single third-class cruiser of the British
fleet. It appears that the Commander bof
the Comus commenced his well-laid plans to
secure the island about midnight on Sun-
day. Two boats' crews under Lieuts.
Burney and Thierens were fitted out with
tarpaulins to conceal their whitened sides
and muffled oars. These were towed into
the harbour by a steam launch, and then
.the men pulled silently under the shadow
from the shore to a spot about 100 yards
from Needham's -w hailf. where a strong pic-
ket was post.d. The men landed and pro-
eeded up a back alley to Bay road, where
a Jpolkic-man olnduty was captured, gagged,
and, made, to show the way across the Sa-
vannah to the Garrison. Silently the in-
vaders crawled across the road, scaled the
walls of the Garrison, captured the sentries,
spiked the guns, laid a train of guncotton
to the magazine, demanded the keys of the
Commissariat and then knocked up the
Commander to say that the place was in
their -possession, and that the Government
House, the Banks and public buildings had
already been blown up. The playful cap-
ture of the island was effected with such
consummate skill that there was absolutely
no show of resistance, and the only shot
fired was as one boat's crew departed from
the shore, it being claimed by the islanders
that they had been killed and sent to the
bottom, though only after all the damage
was done on shore. Meanwhile H., M. S.
Comus had steamed into the harbour with-
out lights, and unseen by the',R. M. S.
MIftidcI,/y and Esk informed their respective
captains that they were captured and must
get up steam in case of their being required'
to proceed to sea. All this took compara-
tively little tsme in the silence of the night,
and when the Barbados authorities became
fully ailve to the state of affairs and fired
rockets as signals from place to place the
strong electric search light of the Conmus-
the reflection of which was seen at a dis-
'tance of thirty miles-at once made clear
-the whereabouts of the signallers, and sug-
gested the firing of ,two bioadsiles upon
the'stores of Bridgetown. It may be ment-
ioned that ships arriving on the Sunday all
denied having seen a man-of-war about,
and that the complete capture of the place
was.a genuine surprise. It is admitted on
all hands that the attack. was most cleverly
.carried'out, and the proof of its possibility
is not unimportant in view of the policy of.
the Imperial Government -in-concentratinig
the 'toop.s at given points in the West In-
dies, believing that it is unwise to attempt
the defense of the other islands except at
an expense altogether incompatible with
,their wealth and import a nie. H,[M.S. C..,,,oa,

There are but 85 head of wild buffaloes,
804 alive in captivity, and about 200 under

We cannot close our report without acknow-

they have performed their duties during the
recent Michaelmas Term, Criminal and Civil
Sessions, and the Special Criminal Session,
which commenced on the llth ultimo and was
concluded on the 28th. The Hon. J. H. Trim.
ingham summed up the evidence in the various
cases in a manner calculated to put the real
points at issue clearly before the jury, and the
intelligence with which he grasped the ma-
terial facts and the ability with which he laid
them before the jury would have done credit
to a professional Judge.
The members of the Regimental Rifle Associa-
tion, 1st Batt. Leicestershire Regiment, were for-
tunate on Tuesday last in having one of our most
perfect of winter days for the second gathering of
their lately formed Club, which was held at the
Spittal Pond Range, with the kind permission of
Mr Clarence Peniston and the members of the
Central Parish and Victoria Rifle Clubs, whom we
were'glad to see taking part in the matches.
The programme for the day, though necessarily
not a long one, was of considerable Regimental in,
terest as the first event was a competition for the
honour and glory of being Battalion shot" for
the year, which carries with it a substantial money
prize, and a badge of cross guns and crown in gold
lace worn on the unit'orm. Under the authorized
conditions this honour was competed for by sixteen
non-commissioned officers and men, the best two
shots of each company in the Annual Course of
Musketry carried out during the summer at War-
wick. The match was fired strictly under the mus-
ketry regulations at 200, 500 and 600 yards, 7
rounds at each position, sitting, kneeling, and ly-
ing down, and the targets were what are known as
"figure targets." After an exciting competition
the prize was carried off by Lance-Corporal May.

consolation prizes" for Colour Sergeant Ray.

Band who were second and third, the scores being

positions and the comparatively difficulty of making
good scores at figure targets appear to us very
For No. 2 Competition, the Open 200, there were
133 entries and Col-Sergeant Bell was the winner
of the 1st prize with a score of 23 out of a possible
25. Seven other competitors obtained 22 and re-
No 3 competition was the open 500 and the first
prize was carried off by Mr A Darrell of the Vic-.
toria Club, with the capital score of 24 out of 25,
while four other competitors received prizes.
Sergeant Marshall won No 4 event, a handicap
in which he had to give two points on his score
made with seven rounds at 500 yards, his score be,
ing 33 out of a possible 35.
Thle Pool, at 200 yards, was much patronized.
Oat of 502 shots fired 10 were successful. As no
hits except bullseyes were signalled, the difficulty
of obtaining a bullseye was much enhanced. To-
wards the close of the day, the commanding officer,
Major Rolph, made a brief speech in which he ex-
pressed His Excellency the Governor's regret which
was shared by the battalion, that indisposition had
unavoidably prevented him from being present and
giving away the prizes, which were then presented
by Mrs Rolph,
The President of the Cnteen with the kind as.
distance of Mr W T James provided for the crea-
ture comforts of the competitors, and the day's
outing was generally considered most enjoyable.

ies,-The Battalion figure of Merit, having beeu
improved by 21 points in the Individual Firing,
and by 18 per cent in the Field Practices (the
more practical and useful part of the training from
a military point of view) this year, and we are of
opinion that a.few more of such meetings as the
late successful one at Spittal Pond will do much

THE PARNELL COMMISSION.
LONDON, Novr 22.-Before the Parnell Commis-
sion to-day Sir Henry James continued his speech
tor the Times. He said that Mr Parnell had paid
Mr William Redmond 170, and had promised
that Mr Redmond would be called to explain why
the payment was- made, but Mr Redmond had
never been called.
Sir Henry attempted to show, step by step, how
the Clan-na-Gael had become paramount in the
body which represented the Irish-American move-
ment and controlled and directed its operations.
He emphasized the fact that Mr Parnell did not
denounce the use -f dynamite, and quoted from
an article in the Irishman praising Mr Parnell for
the stand he had taken. He admitted, however,
that Mr Parnell was probably unaware of the ap-
peal ance of the article.
Sir Hfnry contended that the Irishman, which
was Mr Parnell's l'operty, was enabled to pro-
claim Mr Parnell's policy from observation of the
course which he was pursuing. Sullivan and Ford,
Sir Henry declared, had openly preached assassi-
nation in connection with the Clan-na-Gael. The
Irishman bad said thot Mr Parnell's silence regard.
ing the agitation Ja the American was the best proof
of his statesmanship and sagacity.
Sir Henry finally concluded his speech at half-
past three o'clock. r--
Presiding Justiwp Iannen said that the Court
would not call for a further evidence. He con-
gratulated the counsel on the completion of their
tasks and added :-" We must bear the burden a
little longer. One hope supports us. Conscious
that throughout this great inquest we havehave sought
only the truth, we trust that we shall be guided to
find and set it forth plainly in the sight of all
LoNDON, Nov. 23.-During the 129 days the
Parnell Commission sat, the President expressed
an opinion, addressed observations to the Court or
witnesses or made casual remarks 624 times, Sir
Archibald Smith 4602 and Sir John Day only once,
and that at the iery beginning of the inquiry.
Irrespective of questions addressed to witnesses,
the Attorney General lias made 603 observations
and Sir Henry James-126, Sir Charles Russell be-
ing close upon the heels of the latter with 421,
while Michael Davitt offered 126, Biggar 46, Sex-
ton 9 and Parnell 5., .
Exactly 0S witnesses were called,eto whom 98,-.
267 questions were pat. Mr Murphy, Q.C., the
counsel for thi Times, examined 117, while Mr
Atkinson, on the sane side, examined 98, the At-
torney General 81, Sir Henry James 45, Mr Ronan
39 and Mr Graham 5.
On the nationalist aide there were comparatively
few witnesses called, and of these Mr Reid exam.

Of the witnesses called 28 were named O'Con-
nor, 24 Walsh, 22 Murphy, 16 Burke, 14 Sullivani
and Kelly and 11 O'Brien, while the names of no
fewer than 45 places commencing with Bally
were mentioned in the course of evidence.
LoN DON. Dec. 4.-The Times and Post are en-
tirely sati.liud with the President's message.
Other papers criticise it sharply.
The Times says:--" President Harrison's mes-
esage to con ress at the opening of its winter
esison is thie tirst public declaration of thegen-
oral policy of lil government since he came in-
to otfice. During the intervening period public
affairs in the United States have been singular.
ly uneventful, and the Presidential message
naturally reflects this absence of stirring inci-
dents. It is not in any way an exciting docu-
ment, in spite of Blame's spread eagleism. It
neither narrates nor p.>rteils controversiesand
conflict with foreign Powers, and indeeJ its re.
ferences to relations between the American
government and the government of the United
Kingdom appear to be studiously moderate
and even cordial in tone'
"We welcome the President's suggestion of a
new and enlarged treaty of extradition between
this country and the United States, all the more
because this sensible policy has hitherto been
resisted by certain sections of the American
people, to whom the Cronin trial is teaching a
lesson. If the Senate follow the lead given by
Mr Harrison an important reform will be ef-
fected without much further trouble.
The Post says :-'" The standard of official
conduct in America is proverbially worthy of
the Republic's origin as an offshoot of the first
country where liberty was really established,
and the calm and statesmenlike tone of Presi-
dent Harrison's message.,is conclusive evidence
that during his term in office lie will endeavour
to maintain the best traditions of American
diplomacy, unsullied by those temporary de-
vices which seem inevitable during election
"It is not without a feeling of envy that the
anxious and heavily burdened States of tlihe Old
World contemplate the fortunate circumstances
of the giant Republic which has sprung up in
ENGLAND'S LABOR TROUBLES.
London, Dec 4.-The accountant who examined
the books in which were kept the accounts of the
receipts and disbursements of money received to
aid the dock laborers in their recent strike ceitifie.
that they are in a fairly satisfactory condition
The accounts show that the leaders of the strike
received no money beyond that given in payment
of their actual expenses The accountant says
that, allowing for the pressure under which the
leaders worked and the extensive field of their op-
erations, the deficiency in the accounts, which
amounts to 192, is trifling.
The Bristol Strike.-The settlement of the dock
laborers' strike at Bristol was effected by a com-
promise. The questions of employing foreign
labor and abolishing middlemen were waived. The
strikers lost in wages the sum of 10,000, and mer-
chants suffered severely in consequence of the
London may yet be in the dark.-The gas stokers
and coal porters of South London, after a day's
discussion, have given notice that they will strike
in one week from this date unless the gas company
dispenses with the services of the blacklegss."
The company writes to the papers explaining its
position and declaring its intention to fight against
the tyranny of the Gasworkers' Union.
Twelve hundred Clyde engineers went out on
strike on the morning of the 19th ult. Eighteen
firms, under pressure of contracts, have been
obliged to concede the strikers' demands.
GERMANY AND ENGLAND.
BERLIN, Nov. 28.-la the Reichstag to-day Herr
von Barth, a progressist, made a long speech in op-
position to the government's Southwest African
colonial policy. In spite of h'is protest, however,
the appropriation asked for defensive purposes in
Southwest Africa was voted by an overwhelming
Count Herbert Bismarck landed Major Wissman
for his services in East Africa, and said it would be
to Germany's advantage to co-operate loyally with
England in that region. In all future action the
policy of Germany would go hand in hand with
that of England. It would not be possible to at-
tain important successes in East Africa without
the loyal support of the British government. We
will negotiate with the East Africa Company he
said, "in order to arrange for further action."
MARTIN FARQUHAR TUPPER.
Death came to Martin Farquhar Tupper yester-
terday and found the poet's laurels faded. There
was a time when his writings werepopular. Then
he was regarded as a profound preacher of moral
ethics. His "Proverbial Philosophy" made a
deep impression in England, France and America.
But that was a full generation ago. Since
then Mr. Tapper gradually sank out of sight.
He was not enough of a poet to hold the heart,
and as a purely intellectual force his influence was
superficial. Being neither musician, prophet or
sage, his fame perished early in a literary era that
produced Tennyson, Browning, Thackeray, Car-
lyle and Emerson.
Mr. Tupper was almost an octogenarian, and
enjoyed for fifteen years a modest pension from
the British Government. In his youth he de-
feated Mr. Gladstone at Christ Church College in
a theological essay contest, but generously allow-
Ad him to take one-fifth of the prize money be.
cause he was a good second. Who, looking at the
two brilliant yonug men then, could have dreamed
the widely different paths that stretched before
them through the fierce activities of more than
half a century to a virtuous old age ?-N. Y. Her-
ald, Dee. 3.
Pedro in Poor Healh.-Lisbon, Nov 28.- A pri-
vate cable despatch from Rio. Janeiro says that
Dom Pedro was ill when he left Brazil and that he
was accompanied by his physician, Dr Mottamaria.
It is doubtful whether Dom Pedro will land
here. The provisional government instructed the
Brazilian Minister here that if the deposed Emper-
or'desired to proceed to another port another stea.
mer should be chartered to convey him, as the
Alagoas returns to Rio Janeiro immediately.
It is reported from Vienna that the Chateau
Orth, near Gmiinden, the property of Archduke
John, has been taken for Dom Pedro for a perma-
No news of the Alagoas has been received from
any Northwest African port. Dom Pedro is there-
fore not expected to arrive before the first week in

the Brazilian inland telegraph lines are unavailia-

resolved to recall all Jesuits from Brazil owing to
the state of public feeling in that country.

Whether these bones have once been picked
7by the customers at the table outside it
would be better, perhaps, not to inquire.
To enjoy yourself at a restaurant where you
do not want to spend much money, you
must have, first of all, faith. Out of this
boiler the cook dips a bowlfool of the clear
soup, and into it he pops in quick succes-
sion a little from each pot of boiled vege-
tables he is serving for that day. He gives
it all a stir, and presto! There is your
.vegetable soup. Notice all the orders for
soup that come in and for every one you
will see him go first to the big boiler. Is
it consomme ? 'From a big pitcher he pours
into the clear stock some brown thickening
fluid. Is it macaroni ? A pot of boiled
macaroni is near at hand and he forks a
few strings into the bowl. Is it ox-tail ?
A big tin of condensed ox-tail soup stands
on a handy shelf, and a spoonful lends its
flavour to the stock. Is it chicken ? He
thrusts a pair of tongs into the boiler and
brings up morsels from the depths until
enough scraps of chicken are found to pass
muster. Is it tomato? A squirt of weak
but thick tomato catsup does the business.
Is it rice ? Some of the rice pudding is
available. More rice, some thickening and
a fistful of curry-powder and you have a
curry. A little thickening and a kidney
from another pot makes the kidney stew
always ifn demand. That is pretty good, is
it not ? for one illusion, and yet that plain
man does not call himself a necromancer,
much less a chef. See him next lift that
magic wand, that looks so much like a
carving-knife. Roast lamb and roast mut-
ton: come from the same joint at its touch,
and by the aid of an unctuous sauce and
some jelly, so will roast venison at a pinch.
Roast rib or roast loin from the same piece
of beef depends altogether on his carving.
The veal is veal, or it is.chicken for salad,
or it is turkey for fricassee, or it is rabbit
for stew, or it is lamb for pie, just as he
desires. The plain old cod, too, if boiled,
is turned into boiled halibut or haddock or
bluefish, and if baked, becomes baked
halibut or bluefish or haddock at his simple
touch. With the aid of a few biting sauces
they become almost anything. that one can
name in the way of fish. When it comes to
desserts, fho distinction between fruit cake
and plum pudding is with him only, the
difference between hot and cold, and, van-
ishes before the blast from his oven. The
boiled rice of the curry or the soup, with
milk, sugar, and a little nutmeg, is straight-
way rice pudding. Tapioca and sago come
out of the same dish, and it is a wonder
how he remembers all the names he calls
his cottage pudding by. A boiled egg is
one of the few things that defy his magic;
but after watching him for a while one, is
hardly surprised to see him bring it out of

Signs of the Times.
At the time when railroads were first in-
tiroduced into Germany, the Royal College
of Physicians in Bavaria signed and issued
a protest against the new mode of travel.
"Locomotion," it declared, "by means of

Dr Grayenigo, of the University of adua,

into the humanp eye. In the successful case
reported by Gravenigo the graft is said to
have united quickly, and formed a cornea

UNDER THE BLOCKADE.
Ingenuity Practiced by some Women in WVar
Has a proper estimate ever been placed,
I wonder, upon the large amount of wit
sharpening, the constant exercise and con-
sequent development of ingenuity prac-
ticed by the fair ladies of the Confederacy
during the last years of the war?
The exigencies of the time were great,
for the outside resources of the south-
slim at the start, if one will recall the small
number of manufactories to be found in
that section-were dwindling fast away,
and often such supplies as could be devel-
oped at home and among families were the
only ones that could be relied upon.
These supplies included articles of every
nature, from food and clothing for the
family down to toys for the children. The
question of dress became a perplexed one
after all ports were blockaded by northern
vessels and all frontier ports were held by
northern troops, and woman's wit was- se-
verely taxed in order to make a good ap-
pearance from the material at her com-
"CANDLE MAKING BEES."
The subject of lights was another with
which it was found difficult to contend.
Tallow .ias used freely during the first
years of the war; old candle molds were
brought out from their hiding places and
put to use, and tallow dips became as
familiar to us as they had been to our fore-
fathers. But the source of supply of these
lights of other days soon became ex-
hausted, and woman's ingenuity was again
put to the test. Lard also had been in fre-
quent use, and a favorite light was a saucer
or can fill with this melted substance
wherein floated a burning sycamore ball.
It, too, was growing scarce, however, and
a new material must be evolved.
Several things were tried, but a mixture
of beeswax and rosin was found best of
them all. Through this mixture when
melted, a long coil. of candle wick was
drawn again and again until thoroughly
coated, and in order to make this coating
even several persons stood in a row holding
the wicking at short intervals and shaping
the wax upon it as it passed through their
hands. The position of greatest honor and
difficulty in this undertaking was conceded
to be the one next to the pan containing
the heated melted mixture.
When cold, this waxen rope was wound,
row after row, around a bottle, with the
free end put through a strip of tin with a
hole in it, in order to hold it upright.
These candles gave forth a meager but a
steady light. Candle making bees" were
quite the style, and young ladies and their
military beaux on leave managed to
extract a good deal of merriment from them
The refreshments were usually fruit and
A light for sick rooms consisted of a scrap
of paper cut like a miniature cap and set in
a saucer of.lard. When thelpoint of this
little cap was well oiled and lit it gave forth
sufficient illumination to see a watch or
drop medicine by. Before lard became so
scarce a lady friend of ours illuminated her
house beautifully for an evening party
with these tiny jets of flame. She bor-
rowed wine glasses from far and near, con-
verted them into these little lamps and
placed them in pyramids on mantles, brac-
kets and all available places. The effect
was very novel and pretty. Those who
lived in the pine regions obtained their
light from the picturesque and cheerful
glow of pine knots, but it was of so flicker-
ing a nature as to be very hard upon the
eyes if reading, writing or sewing was at-
A vision of a belated war time supper,
eaten under the fantastic glare of a pine
torch, held by a negro boy at the end of
the table, stands out in bold relief on the
tablets of my memory, and I can see as
vividly as if to day the faces of those about
the board, beneath the wavering Rem-
brandtesque shadow of the torch.
PAPER WAS SCARCE.
Paper grew very scarce toward the close
of the war, and newspapers made their ap-
pearance on wall paper, while the familiar
songs of the period, such as "Lorena,"
Richmond on the James," "All Quiet
Along the Photomac To-night" Rock me
to Sleep" and "When This Cruel War Is
Over" were printed on sheets much re-
duced from the usual size, and of a very
course brown paper. Evelopes were always
turned, and thus made to do double duty,
and where letters were written in pencil
the first writing was erased (usually with
a piece of an old rubber shoe), and the
same paper used for the reply.
School books of an ancient date were
brought to light, and while in some schools
but one text book of a certain kind was
used for an entire class, the pupils of another
class, were, perhaps, each supplied with a
different text book on the same subject.
The greater number of the remedial agents
of the time were prepared by the ladies,
for, regular drugs had been made contra.
band and were exceedingly hard to procure.
Flaxseed, dried blackberries, slippery elm
and other such natural remedies as the
,country afforded were kept on hand in most
families. Healing herbs were largely cul-
tivated, and oftentimes the simplest reme-
dies, such as pine water or shuck tea, were
made to serve a timely and efficient turn.
Sick and wounded soldiers were common
inmates of private dwellings, and a roll of
lint and bandages were usually kept with
the medicine ready for immediate use.

THE BANANA PLANT-AN INTERESTING
A discovery has been made on a Fiji plantation
which will in all probability prove extremely val-
uable in all tropical countries where the cultivation
of bananas is regarded as a settled industry. The
banana disease had for some time past been caus-
ing much havoc on Messrs Peat Bros, and Moore's
plantation of Tuva Mila, on Vanua Levu, and it
appears that the discovery of an antidote was due
to quite an accidental occurrence. On a flat near
the seashore there was a patch of bananas much
diseased, and some time ago the sea swept into it
and remained on for about an hour. All the
plants were killed right off as far as the standing
stems were concerned, but vigorous young shoots
came up freely from the roots, and were not only
quite free from disease, but soon began to bear
much larger bunches of fruit than the parent
plants ever did. Upon noting this effect the
planters then determined t ry the experiment
upon a number of badly-diseased plants which the
sea had not reached. In the prosecution of this
they cut down the diseased plants, and having
stirred the ground near about them, poured from
one to four buckets of sea water over each. The
result was that, while the parent stems whithered,
vigorous young shoots came freely away, without
a sign of disease.-European Mail, Oct 31st, 1"89.

A barrel of American flour would once buy at
Rio a bag of coffee weighing 30 pounds more than
the present ones, whereas it now takes five barrels
of flour to make the barter. Nineteen staples of
trade have gone down in price, while .coffee has
more than doubled. People now want to make in
five years what would once have been considered
the work of forty years. Some do it, but the
great majority become bankrupt. The commission
houses make profits-out -of this speculation, but
that adds nothing to the prosperity.of the country.
It is neither more nor less than'gambling to buy
and sell on the exchange 22,000,000 bags of
coffee on an average crop of 5,000,000 bags.-
