nire 'so .wkward, for the platform, where people
I :ud and embark from and to Pera is not far from

wuit.- f...r us and we row out. Boats here are to
b:e hir-ed as hackney coaches are in London, and all
v-riv L,.-.uitijully carved, most of them with some
Sillini. The shape of these boats is light and
1.--outifitl, and the Turks row very.well, which is a
thinLi."- a nite incompatible with the idleness visible
iii all r.iuks of people."
i Perhaps, Sir, it is lucky for Europe that the
Turks ate idle and ignorant. The immense power
Sthi -i Empire might have, were it peopled by the in-
.'Iustri.-,ui and ambitious, would make it the mis-
tres of the world. At present it only serves as
.1i T 11 to intercept the commerce and battles
whi.-h other r powers might create one another."

are a great number near Constantinople, they hit
what they imagine to be coa-hes, called arabats-
a vile machine, like a covered cart with rows c
benches in the ius.ide. There are no springs t
them. and one day in a valley called I'Echelle d
G'raiid Seigneur, I got into one, but chose rathe
to g't out and walk six miles than be jolted un
i-er.:iftully. All the Ambassadors, since my arrive
her-i, have given balls and dinners. Mdme. d'Her

Should have emptied, anid let me have had it all t<

1 tlie only expence the Maholmetaus permit them-
selves as a proof of their respect for the Deity or his

ELECTION OF PARISH OFFICERS.
At a meeting of the Parishioners of Pembroke

THE WEATHER of late has been very changeable and
singular. The Barometer has had a downward ten-
dency for some days, and f,'r the greater part of yester-
dayit was two and a half tenths lower than during the
severe gale of 22nd O.tobe-r 1875.
In St. George on Sunday evening between 9 and 10
o'clock there was a heavy hail torm, hail stones as
large as nutmegs falling, breaking several pains of
glass in the Town Hall and in many other buildings,
and injuring the onion plants, &c.
We understand that a very smart shock of earth-
quake was felt in many parts of the Island on Sunday
night.
THE PARK.-It will be observed by a notice of
His Worship the Mayor of Hamilton, which ap-.
pears in another part of this issue of the Gazette,
that the Park in this Town will be opened to the
Public from this day. Very much has been done to
arrange and beautify the very limited space of
ground which has been set apart for this purpose
and much credit is due the Gentlemen under whose
care it has been brought to its present state of per-
fection. Some years since when the Bands of some
of the Regiments then quartered at Prospect, were
in the habit of delighting many listeners with their
beautiful music of a summers evening, under the
shade of the cedars, we substituted the name "Vic-
toria Park," being far more euphonious to the one

A despatch from Rome says the Ministerial
crisis continues. The Chamber of Deputies yester-
day adjourned indefinitely. The Government meets
with fresh opposition in the Senate and increasing
difficulties in the formation of a ministry. There
is little chance of Signors Depretis and Crishi suc-
ceeding.
Suleiman Pasha, with 10,000 men, has arrived at
Constantinople from Varna. He goes to Adriano-
ple to take command of the army of Roumelia.
Suleiman's8 circuitous route is explained by the
fact that in consequence of ice and snow in the
Balkan passes, heavy material is more easily trans-
ported by railway to Varna, thence by sea to Con-
stantinople. It is thought also that a portion of the
troops from the Quadrilaterial have gone to Rou-
melia by land direct, as the Czarowitch reports that
the Turkish forces outside of Rustchuk and on the
Lorn have withdrawn.

SIU,-Before Captain Lloyd leaves for Bermuda,
will you kindly grant me space in your columns to
return him publicly my sincerest thanks for his
kindness to myself personally, and for the stren-
uous efforts which he made to recover my unfor-
tunate vessel ? Though, till a few days ago, Cap-
tain Lloyd was a total stranger to me, and I had
no claims on his sympathy beyond what one sailor
has on another, I have never from any one, even
from personal friends, received so much real kind-
ness. Not only were the services which he ren-
dered to my vessel altogether gratuitous, but to-
wards myself he has shown a friendly consideration,
which makes me a debtor to him for life. *
His courtesy, generosity, and kindly sympathy
have been such, as in a long experience I have
never seen equalled.

MR. EDITOR,
3 SIR,-The human soul without education, says Mr.
, Addison, is like marble in a quarry, which requires to
be hewn out, and chizied by the hand of the workman,
* before it can be adapted to any useful purpose. He
goes on to say it is the same with the human mind;
unless'it be cultivated and expanded by education it
lies dormant,, and the individual lives on a little above
brute beasts th i perish. How needful then is it to
have Teachers qualified to impart knowledge and in-
struction to the rising generation, many of whom go
Forth in the world without the necessary aids which
3 would enable them to surmount the difficulties which
ignorance is sure to encounter in the various walks of
life.
Schools and good Teachers are not as much prized
and appreciated as they ought to be; and least by those
who stand most in need of them. There is not a more
useful and honorable calling in civilized society than a
conscientious Schoolmaster; and it behoves every one
who is a lover of le-irning and desires to exalt the char-
acter of his country, to uphold and encourage those who
devote themselves to the education of Youth.
I am led to, these remarks from having visited, with
some others, the School of Mr. Lines in this Parish,
at a general examination of his Pupils on the eve of
Christmas holidays. Mr. Lines opened his school here
about two years ago, and by assiduous attention and
perseverance he has attained a success, and popularity
highly gratifying to himself and his friends. Indeed
he deserves it: at the examination referred-lo, the ptt.
w Z.ULU' sd c -gress in iiiany bran-
ches ofstudyhighlycommendable and which onvined
the audience they had not been crammedfor aepurpose;
that they had been taught much; and what the.yhad
been taught had been thoroughly learned anduny had
stood. It was pleasing to see the display of mapsrof
different parts of the globe so neatly and accurately
painted even by some of the youngest bos who mani-y
tested surprising aptitude in this useful hnch ofndu.-,
cation. o.
Besides this School, which is confined to boyswe
have a fpxe ISchool which is well attended, and where
the common branches of education are taught, with
French and Music.

PRESENTATION TO THE REV. F. J. F.
LIGHTBOURN.

The above Clergyman., after having labored in the
Parish of St. George for ntfe years, obtained two
months leave of absence and left these Islands on
the 1st November, in the "Canima," to visit the
United -States, returning by the same vessel on
Sunday the 23rd inst. In anticipation of his re-
turn, some of the Parishioners erected a pretty
Floral Arch over the Rectory garden gate, with the
words on it, Welcome home," and the Sunday
School children, together with a good many adults,
waited about. anxiously looking for his arrival. At
seven o'clock a carriage drove up containing the
Rector, upon a given signal the children and others
ranged themselves in two lines and sang a hymn of
welcome, after which three hearty cheers were
given.
BIut a still more gratifying surprise was in store,
for during his absence the Sunday School Teachers
and district Visitors, had been collecting money for
the purpose of presenting a testimonial to him in
the shape of a Gold Watch and Chain. Between
36 and 37 *as collected, and the subjoined ap-
propriate Testimonial drawn up, signed by 233
persons who had subscribed, and framed in an
Oxford cedar frame.
To the Rev. F. J. F. Lighbourn, Rector of St.
" George, Bermuda."-" We, the undersigned Par-
" ishioners of the above Parish, being desirous of
" expressing our heartfelt appreciation of the self-
" denying earnestness, the warm sympathy and the
" Christian love shown by you in your ministry
During the nine years you have labored amongst
' us, take much pleasure in presenting you,. upon
"your return from the United States, with the ac-
ompanying Testimonial, as a small recognition

THE BERMUDA POCKET ALMANACK AND--
DIRECTORY FOR 1878.
If any of our readers will compare the present issue
for 1878 with the earlier editions of the Almanack he
will find a material augmentation in bulk, a large in-
crease in miscellaneous information, calculated to make
the compilation more attractive and more generally
useful. In 1875 first appeared a Directory of the
Towns of Hamilton and St. George, of service to
strangers visiting the Islands and to those abroad who
desired some knowledge of either commercial and Pro-
fessional men in the place; and-a Bermuda Itinerary
drawn up as a brief Guide to a general Tour of hhe
Island. We have reason to believe that the Director t
and Itinerary then first published have been duly
appreciated. The next improvement was a Map of the
Town of Hamilton, and in the Almanack of 1878 is a
Plan of the Town of St. George, neatly executed. The
Directory and Itinerary have been enlarged and im-
proved. A new and important feature in the Almanack
for 1878, which visitors will value, is a catalogue of
the Plants growing in Bermuda, wild and cultivated, !A
specially classified by Dr. Hinson-a handy Botba
Guide-which may be enlarged. The catalogti
Bermuda Fishes, Birds and Shells, the Garde
Calendar and list of Seeds adapted to Bermuda, besides
the information usually found in an Almanack, will
show the value of the compilation not only to.residents
and visitors, but to those absent who may desire spedi-
fie information regarding these Islands. The bulk has
been increased from 156 pages in 1875 to 200 pops in
1878-and the price remains the same 1/6. PFrofd-
yourselves with a copy, and send to your friends
abroad. It is the most compact existing Guide to
Bermuda, and being revised yearly contains the latest
information. As Bermuda is more visited, the demand
for the Almanack will increase. The publisher has
been emboldened to enhance its value in a portable
reference guide at considerable cost, increasing its im-
portance as an advertising medium, and spreading
abroad a correct knowledge of the Bermudas.

gW As it is well known that the Rev. Dr. F.oggo
has lately been the subject of a most shameful attack
in a Philadelphia newspaper, it will be pleasing to his
numerous friends in Bermuda to know, on good autho-,
rity, that this contemptible affair has made no differ-.T,
ence whatever between him and his large an I influent
tial congregation ; that the members of Christ's Churc
have had the good sense to treat the satanic article with
the contempt it deserves so far as it concerns their
Rector, at the same time they are endeavouring to
bring the authors of the scandal to justice ; and that the
name of the writer has been given up, though not be-
fore lie had time to make his escape from the city. The
writer disclaims having had any desire to injure Dr.
Foggo, and says he otly wrote the article with the in-
nocent view to raise a breeze." It is to be hoped for
the good of society that the wretched creatures who
could thus trifle with a good man's character, will be
made to suffer the punishment they so richly deserve.
