BERMUDA COMMERCIAL AND GENERAL ADVERTISER AND RECORDER.


No. 17 -Vol. Ll. STATE SUPER VZAS ANTZQUAS. 24s per Ann


Ifamiltioi, Bernmauda, Tuesday, .pril 23, 18 78.


[Wr'7itht cxpr,r. sli for the Bermnada Royal Gazette]
: C ompulsion.

There is something in the very word that is un-
.palatable. It implies a bridling of mind and limb,
and a reduction to an involuntary machine, of the
whole being. It'sa good thing that comes of a
will" is a proverb trite and true. One volunteer is
worth ,ine press men. The difference between
what is voluntary and involuntary is very great.
We will do far more as individuals; if we are not
compelled, whether itbelour ordinary employment or
occupation, or one of these outside eugrossings which
many undertake. It is consummate tact in a ruler
or, master to secure compliance with wishes, or
obedience to orders, as much as possible on the part
of those controlled, as a ready obedience to their
own will. There are those who possess this per-
sonIal magnetism in an eminent degree, and they
are gigantic minds who chain others with a grate-
ful yoke, and who cement the whole political and
social fabric. Those, who exercise'the greatest con-
trol, are they who mildly enforce' their > wills so
much so, that the' action achieved seems to be more
the act of the doer himself altogether. It is a rare
virtue to be thus able to influence a wvhole commu-
nity and happy the people who have such controll-
ers among them -to direct and encourage. We
take readily &t such persons, why, we cannot ex-
actly tell, but *we are instinctively drawn to them.
The dependence of one mind on another is somewhat
c'rioms,and still more that of many miuds on tlhe
w. But this controlling power, to be effective,
must by no means be compulsive. When compul-
sion enters, tyranny springs up, and with it is be-
gotten retaliitom y dislikes, and-the spirit of rebel-
lion is naturally engendered. .
The successfull schoolmaster is he- who drills his
pupils in the mysteries of knowledge and in the
science of morals, in such a way that.the druggery
of compulsion seems almost entirely annihilated.
As far as possible, the acquisition of knowledge
should be made as little of a task as can be, and
genius directed easily into the channels of its ,owp
particular bent. That there is no, royal road to
learning is but too true. The path is beset with
many difficulties, calling for much industry, and
needing all encouragement. A disgust is, however,-
only too frequently begotten by-. aj1 in juvdichous-
system of training, compulsion being substituted
for a gentle stimulating of natural talent. And
frequently there is an utter disregard of the special
bent of genius, it being driven too often against
its own inclination, into courses utterly repugnant
to it. In all cases the character and incliuation of
the individual should 'be considered, and education
followed' out accordingly. The versatility of tfnlent
would thus be the more fully bought out, and the h
community would benefit more by the variety of
development. "'
Music, for instance, is considered an essential part
of a lady'~ training, and playing the piano has
come now to be a compulsory part of their educa-
tion. But there are many ladies who freely confess
.that this accomplishment, for which they had no
natural inclination, has been forced on them at the
expense of their own feelings and the trial of their
patience. In the training of children much de-
pends upon the manner in which they are dealt
with. Two similar types of disposition will be dif-
ferently developed under different systems. That
system which tends to compulsion, which compels a
child to do right, only for fear of a cat-of-nine-tails,
and not for any intrinsic love of what is right and
truthful, is radically defective. Many a noble dis-
position has been soured in consequence, and the
very principle in their character, which would have
been otherwise beneficial, becomes an evil propen-
sity. Firmness, seasoned with kindness, is the sort
of compulsion which is most endurable, and which
bears fruit to advantage.
In labour there is a dignity, which specially ap-
pertains to it, but how many have been so taught to
labour in patient perseverance ? Is it not too true
that many are now brought up with the idea that
labour is not respectable, that, absurd plea, which
many so ruinously make to their own disadvantage.
and the impoverishment of the community among
which they dwell. And is not this largely due to
the wrong principles which are acted on, making'
labour compulsory and distasteful, instead of im-
pressing it, which it really is, as, a condition con-
ucive to mental. and physical efficiency and conse-
quent happiness. Remove this sting of compul-
sion, and the thorn of offence disappears. It is
quite true, that, without labour, there can be no
meat, but, though thorns and thistles will grow,
labour is not devoid of its sweetness. It is a false
philosophy which gives to labour that compulsory
character, which renders it repulsive and disagree-
able. Educate youth to its dignity as well as
its necessity, and life will have in it more sweetness
as well as more usefulness.
The evil effects of compulsion are seen in several
different ways. The overbearing demeanour of a
youth towards his fellow, in a spirit of compulsion,
lads4 to strife and its concomitant evils. In ma-
tured manhood thi mischievous principle becomes
more apparent, leading to unpleasant dictation,
which, if resented, leads to aggravated troubles. It
matters not how iuch a person is inchlined to do
anything of his own accord, if compelled to do the
same thing exptly,, a spirit of opposition will cer-
aixily shew itself. So that great judgment is
kpeqisite in dealing with people. As a rule, it will
be found beneficial and conducive to a harmonious
rogreys, to prompt action from individual free will.
The voluntary principle is undoubtedly the correct
We may carry our examination still further, and
.consider the case of nations. It would be interest-


ing to know how many ruptures of diplomatic in-
tercourse have been the consequents of a compul-
sory policy, and that too, when the demands made,
if they had been couched in moderate language,
would probably have met with a ready response.
Thou shalt not, is en imperious command, which
brings withitno commendation. There need not
necessarily be any lack of firmness, or any weakness
of determination, in a system which appeals to the
freedom of the will rather than the strong coercion
of it. What has been said of the individual char-
acter is true also of the national. The aggregate
of units is as the units. There is the same abhor-
rence in the individual and in the nation.
1 Compulsion is seldom necessary, and rarely
advisable. Where a master has only a compulsory
control over his servant, there is no honest consci-
entious service. Only so far as it is necessary will
compliance be yielded, the. service will become
strictly an eye service. Depend upon it, a servant
*will do more left to his own sense of duty than
from a compulsory insistence. ` It is derogatory


alike to master and servant that those relations of
mutual confidence should be disturbed. I say
unto this man go and he goeth, and to my servant do
this, and he doeth it." Not from compulsion but of
a ready mind, are we to look for actions conducive
to all descriptions of progress, and to personal no-
bility.
It were easy to multiply examples and to enlarge
on compulsion. But what has been said will sug-
gest others, and tend to prove that neitherhappiness,
nor progress are to. be attained by a dictatorial
course of action. In reading over the proceedings
of our Assizes, the sentences passed on criminals
derive most of their force from being compulsory.;
Labour is good and bread and water diet, substitu-
ted for ordinary rations, not at. all unhealthy, so
much so that many prisoners, on their exit from
,their term of imprisonment, owing to the beneficial
results of labour and regularity of habits, never
looked better in their lives. But th1 e severity con-
sists in its being compulsory and going against the
grain, and in this respect the punishment is a cor-
rection as regards the culprit, and a warning to any
evil disposed to shun offences of which the law will
surely in its potency take cognizance. Because the
Court condemns to hard labour, it must by no means
be supposed that labour is in itself distasteful. It
is possible that the condemned would, of his own
accord, do far more than the law demands of him.
The oppression of the law is in its compelling him.
Neither must it be thought that labour to be palat-
able must be wanting in system. That.,in other
words tobe endured, it must be suffered to depend
on the whims of fancy. This would be as much as
admitting, that an irregular appetite was the most
desirable. As experience proves that an appetite
produced, with some degree of regularity, leads to
the greatest relish, so regularity of action in gene-
ral is, from every standpoint, the most desirable,for
personal] and public salubrity.
In the nurture and education of youth, the chief
aim should be to instil principles, which have their
foundation on the voluntaryprinciple, by which the
mind will seem to be evolved of its own free motion,
rather than forced into conventional forms, destruc-
tive alike of personal virtues and of public useful-
ness. "That I will not that. I do" is usually the
result of a system of force which looks only at the
end aimed at, whatever it may be, rather than the
means sought after, to attain it. Humanity is
tractable, and will be charmed into compliance by a
gentle persuasion, but will recoil in horror under
the (oppressive yoke of compulsion. This suggests
a comparison between a Parliamentary and a des-
potic system of government, and explains why the
former commends itself to the great bulk of man-
kind as seurin te greatest happiness to the
"greatest number."

PEACE STILL UNCERTAIN.
There is very little change in the Eastern Com-
plications. Whatever may be the status of the
diplomatic negotiations, they are known with cer-
tainty only to those who conduct them. That there
are such negotiations there can be no doubt, and
the inferences formed with respect to them vary
each day. At one moment they are stated to be
good for peace; at the next moment their complex-
ion is all gloomy again. The tenor of the foreign
news published in the New York papers varies
greatly in the same issue, as the news is later or
earlier in reaching the press. There is little room to
doubt that Russia has very greatlylowered her tone,
and that she is doing her best to satisfyfAustria'and
to form an alliance with Turkey. There is little room
to doubt that Germany has been trying to arrange
the basis for some assemblage of the great Powers.
Prince Bismarck has suggested that if the cession
of Armenia, the retrocession of Bessarabia, and the
payment of the indemnity be conceded to Russia,
the other points of the Treaty of San Stefano could
probably be settled by the proposed or possible
Congress. This is all for Russia. He is also re-
ported to have said that he could not make more
urgent representations to Russia than he has done,
as the rejection of more emphatic overtures would
lead to open rupture. This would seem to be
against Russia. Germany seems to be almost as
earnest in favor of the Congress as Austria, and the
disposition of the latter country for that mode of
settling the vexed questions in dispute has never
varied. It is a game of cross purpose: with Aus-
tria as well as with Turkey and Russia. One part
of the Austrian army and people is altogether
against war with Russia; the other part longs for
it. Turkey cannot decide whether het interests
will be best served by making terms with her con-
queror, or by seeking the help and countenance of
England again. The intrigues and efforts of Rus-
sia are incessant. It is a business in which she is
most expert, and the vacillations of Austria and
Turkey both show the effect of her diplomacy.
There is no evidence that England has yet shif-
ted from her demand that the whole Treaty must
be submitted to any Congress that may be conven-
ed. It is probable that some of the propositions of
Germany for a different basis of deliberation have
been considered, but it is not known that a harmonious
conclusion is any nearer. Parliament has adjourn-
ed for the Easter recess to the. 6th of May, and
Ministers stated that there was nothing in the situ-
ation of affairs to make the adjournment improper.
The announcement is made simultaneously with the
adjournment, that five new ironclads are to be put
in commission, and that ten thousand of the native
troops have been ordered from India to Malta. At
one of the last meetings of Parliament, Lord Salis-
bury explained away certain expressions of Lord
Derby which Austria had taken exception to.
They were to the effect stated above, that a large
part of the Austrian forces would be unwilling to
bear arms against Russia. Lord Salisbury said
that this statement was on Lord Derby's personal
responsibility, as there were no facts warranting it
to be found in the Foreign Office. This somewhat
unusual course toward a late colleague in Office,
and so distinguished a member of the Conservative
party as Lord Derby, would denote that England
was anxious to preserve her friendly relations with
Austria, and deemed the occasion for their acting
together had not passed.
Admiral and Mrs. Somerset left here for Halifax
in H. M. S. Sirius, on Saturday last, en route for
England. Admiral Somerset has for some years
held the position of Captain Superintendent of H.
M. Naval Yard, Ireland Island, during which time
he has, by his systematic and conscientious mode
of carrying out the responsible duties of his office,
in a manner highly creditable to himself, won
the respect, and even esteem of those who have
served under him. In his position as Captain
Superintendent of the Naval Yard, Admiral Som-
erset has had frequent opportunities of furth-
ering the interests of the commercial communi-
ty of these Islands, and we have never heard of
an instance of an application made to him to that
end, that he has not renderedit, if not incompatible
with the direct interests of H. M. Service. In this
particular, we, as Vice Consul for France and Italy
can add our personal knowledge of Admiral Som-
erset's kindness in aiding the commercial marine of
other countries as well as that of England, and we may
instance an application made "by telegram," and in
a threatening storm, on behalf of an Italian ves-
sel, which has only just left our Islands, for the
assistance of a steam tug, which was promptly
complied with. It is not to be wondered at there-
fore, that Admiral Somerset carries with him the
sincere good wishes of the Inhabitants generally of
these Islands, for his future health, and success in
that service of which he is an ornament. Mrs.
SSomerset from her social and amiable disposition,
will be a great miss, particularly among the plea-
sure seekers of the Bermudas.
The Churches generally in Bermuda were, on
Sunday last, handsomely decorated with flowers

were upwards of 400 of these beautiful flowers in
the decorations of Holy Trinity Church.

1 We are inforined that Admiral Sir Cooper
Key, K.O.B., FR.S., &c;, &c., inspected the Royal

THE LATE CAPTAIN FERRIER, R.E.
We have had kindly sent us a-copy of the following
General Order, in reference to the late Captain Ferrier.
HEAD QUARTERS, Hamilton, Bermuda,
17th April, 1878. 5
GENERAL ORDER.
[No. 10.]-It is with feelings of great regret-that His
EXCELLENCY THE MAJOR GENERAL COMMANDING-
IN-CHIEF, has to announce to this Garrison, that of-
ficial intelligence has been received confirming the sad
news of the death of Captain Louis FERRIER, Royal
Engineers, who was so lately serving in this command.
This Officer was drowned off the coast off the Isle of
Wight, on the afternoon of Sunday the 24th March,
1878, owing to the foundering of H. M. S. Eurydice.,
His EXCELLENCY feels that in Captain Ferrier the
service has lost a very promising officer, whose pro-
fessional merits were enhanced by an amiability of dis-
position and geniality of manner, which rendered him
popular with his men and a favourite with his brother
Officers.
By Command,
(Signed) ED. STANLEY CREEK,
Major of Brigade.
Among other notices received by the English Mail
via Halifax on Saturday last, relative to the late
greatly lamented Captain Ferrier, was the following
from a dear friend who knew him well in Bermuda.
Nearly the last words we heard the kind hearted Cap-
tain utter were, "I am going for a short trip to Eng-
land to see my mother, I will be back in six weeks."
Alas, how uncertain are the ways of Providence.
Captain Louis John George Ferrier, R.E., of Bel-
syde Linlithgow, N.B., who was drowned on 24th
March off Ventnor, Isle of Wight, from H. M. S.
Eurydice, while on his passage home from Bermuda, en-
tered the Royal Engineers in December 1859. He was
the eldest son of Major Ilay Ferrier, of Belsyde and of
Madras Army. )
In June 1876, on the completion of a 5 years' tour of
duty on the Ordnande Survey in the Thames Valley,
the University of Oxford conferred upon him the hono-
rary degree of Master of Arts. Captain Ferrier arrived
in Bermuda in charge of the 32nd Company, R.E.. in
H. M. S. Himalaya about the beginning of October,
1876. He had four brothers, all of whom are in the
army, and two of whom identified his body at Ventnor
on the 26th March. The calamity of his unfortunate
death appears the more distressing, as the fact of his
having left Bermuda was unknown by his family at
home.
The funeral took place at Edinburgh on Saturday
30th March, military honors being paid to the deceased,
the interment being made in the Belsyde family bury-
ing-ground, Greyfriar's Churchyard. The Bishop of
Edinburgh, a friend of the late Captain Ferrier, offici-
ated.

1W For latest English and European War
News see accompanying supplement.

15 acres of buildings in the most populous portion
of the city were destroyed by fire at Clarksonville,
Tennessee, on the 12th instant. Between 50 and
70 of the principal business houses were consumed.
The fire lasted six hours; supposed to be the work
of incendiaries. Everything was quiet at the latest
date, but it was thought that the least disturbance
would precipitate a row between the whites and
blacks.
There was an affray between students
and the police in St. Petersburg on Friday result-
ing from a public demonstration at the acquittal of
Von Sassulitch.--Germany is still endeavouring
to establish harmony between Russia and the other
Powers.--The Porte is removing valuables, arms
and munitions from Stamboul to Scutari.--Four
British Officers have been killed in the South Af-
rican war; the situation in the Transvaal is very
serious.
An Havana telegram says: The American schr.
Arietis has arrived here from Key West, bringing
76 Cubans who are returning to their homes. An-
other vessel filled with Cubans to preparing to sail
from Key West.
Intelligence has been received from Santiago de
Cuba that the time for the surrender 'of insurgents
having expired, active operations will commence in
the Eastern department against Maceo and a few
more chiefs who are still under arms.
M. Adolph Belot, the popular French novelist, in
his last romance, painted the African King Mounza,
and toward the end of the volume made the savage
die in a very dramatic manner. Curiously enough
he has just received from M. de Lesseps a letter
saying that Mounza has perished in an expedition
against a neighboring nation, and that his death
in all its circumstances agreed perfectly with the
imaginary details described by M. Belot.

THE CUBAN SURRENDER.
A letter from Havana, April 6, says: The
complete restoration of peace has not been pro-
claimed officially as yet, and it seems that there is
a lull at present in transactions between the belli-
gerent parties, but this quiet state of affairs is sole-
]y due to tohe circumstance that the bulk of the in-
surgents having surrendered, the small marauding
parties which daily surrender still do not attract
the.attention of the people, and although the Gov.-
ernment might rightfully declare the insurrection
finally conquered, it does not wish to do so until
the last of the chiefs has laid down his arms. There
Share. only two now left in the mountainous part of
the extreme east of the island. Their names are
Moceo and Vicente Garcia. It is said the only
reason why they have not surrendered yet is that
they ask for commissions in the Spanish Army,
with their present grades. Nothing of this kind


has been stipulated in the peace conditions, nor has
any other chief claimed this, and the Spanish Gov-
ernment will not grant it. Although peace may
thus be considered not entirely re-established in a
political point of view, security and good order
have been restored. Travel throughout the island
has been resumed. Families which left the interior
and sought refuge in the cities are returning to
their former homes.
All the steamers leaving Havana for other parts
of the coast are overcrowded with persons return-
ing to their old abodes and occupations, while in-
surgents who have been for years in the woods are
coming to Havana and filling the hotels.

I N consequence of the great increase in ship-

From "Brief."
THE EURYDICE.-IN MEMORIAM.
MARCH 24, 1878.
NOT 'mid the thunder of the deadly guns,
The flag-. of Britain flying from the mast,
And Honour's halo round the fallen cast,
Died these--three hundred of our sailor sons !
Full in the sight of home their vessel runs,
On the calm Sabbath, till the snow's white shroud
Rushed on the blast, and deep the brave ship
ploughed
Her way to doom with one wild shock that stuns
The stoutest of us but the tale to hear.
Well may we murmur, Why was this allowed ?
As England sheds the patriotic tear
For those of whom in death we feel as proud
As tho' they died on some red battle day,
When Death spells glory as the foeman slay!

(Extracted from the Scotsman.)
THE training-ship Eurydice-
As brave a craft, I ween,
As ever bore brave men who loved
Their country and their Queen-
Built when a ship, sir, was a ship,
And not a steam-machine.
A year or more she had been out
About the Indian seas;
And now with all her canvas bent
Before a homeward breeze,
Up channel in her pride she came,
The sausy Eurydice.
"Only an hour from Spithead, lads; "
Only an hour from home!"
So sang the captain's cheery voice
As she clove the sunlit foam;
And each young sea.dog's heart sang back,
Only an hour from home!"
We saw the bills of Devon rise
Fair in the Sabbath sun,
We marked each hamlet gleaming white-
The church spires one by one,
We thought we heard the church bells ring
To hail our voyage done!
No warning ripple crisped the wave,
To tell of danger nigh,
Nor looming rack, nor driving scud :
From out a smiling sky,
With sound as of the trump of doom,
The squall broke suddenly.
A giant squall of wind and snow
From off the Devon shore,
It caught us in its blinding whirl,
One instant and no more;-
For ere we dreamt of trouble near
All earthly hope was o'er.
No time to shorten sail--no time
To change the vessel's course ;
The squall had caught her crowded masts
With swift, resistless force.
Only one shrill, despairing cry
Rose o'er the turmoil hoarse.
And broadside the great ship went down
Amid the swirling foam;
And with her our four hundred men
Went down, in sight of home
(Fletcher and I alone were saved)-
Only an hour from home!


March 25.


NOEL PATON.


A VALUABLE FORAGE PLANT.
The peculiarly valuable properties of the Cauca-
sian prickly comfrey (Symphytum asperrimum) as a
forage plant, its rapid growth in almost any climate,
simple culture, and luxuriant yield, mark it out for
general cultivation, and its importance to India and
the colonies is such that we need offer no apology for
noticing it: It is a perennial plant, easily propa-
gated by cuttings, and being deeply rooted, is found
to yield abundantly in the hottest seasons of a tro-
pical climate when other vegetation is parched up
and unproductive. Its prolifleness exceeds that
of any other green soiling plant. While good grass
lands yield but eight tons of grass to the acre cut
green, lucerne 40, rye grass 50, and vetches 20,
comfrey produces from 60 to 100 tons, and has been
known (under exceptionally favourable conditions,
of course,) to give the enormous yield of 150 tons.
It comes in earlier than other crops and lasts
longer, yielding a succession of [cuttings. Above
and around the root stems are shoots or suckers,
called crowns, which may be taken off for planting,
and the roots subdivided ; these may be planted at
all seasons of the year except in frosty weather.
Comfrey culture is simple and not costly; the
ground is either forked or ploughed six or eight in-
ches deep, and well manured at the same time.
The crowns or root cuttings are then planted like
potato sets, 8 feet apart, say 1,200 to a quarter of an
acre; during the first year a crop of mangold, tur.
nip, or cabbage may be grown between the rows.
It is, however, advisable, on the receipt of the sets,
to place them on the ground in some warm sheltered
situation, and arrange so that every 100 sets shall
cover an area of two feet long by two feet broad;
after so doing, cover the roots to a depth of two in-
ches with rich garden loam soil, and afterwards
water them well; in a short time the sets will ap-
pear above ground, having thrown out a mass of
white fibrous roots; in ten days or so, the "sets"
may be taken up and planted in the open ground.
When the plant has grown to about the height of
1 feet it ought to be cut over and used, as it is
better not to allow it to grow too tall or to flower.
In winter the roots ought to be well dressed with
ordinary manure or sewage, When dried into hay
it makes good fodder for the feeding and fattening
of stock. The branches and leaves, made into bun-
dles, keep well for forage in winter. The juice
contains much gum and mucilage, but very little
sugar. Cattle fed upon the plant are said to be
free from the ravages of lung and foot and mouth
diseases, and are strongly fortified against infection;
its curative properties have long been known.
By the method of preserving green food in pits,
known as Ensilage, comfrey may be stored with ad-
vantage for future use. The process may be des-
cribed in a few words : As fast as the fodder falls
into the stone-lined pits from the steam chaff cutter
it is spread out and firmly trodden by men. When
the pit is full, some salt is sprinkled on the upper-
most layer, then comes a coating oi long straw, and
finally a covering-of planks well weighed down
with logs or stone, not earth, for it filters through
to the fodder. For some time after the completion
of the above work, the pits need to be carefully ex-
amined every day, as owing to the settling down of
the fodder, cracks are apt to form in the roof, and
these, if not closed, would admit a quantity of air,
and injure the fodder by turning it mouldy. The
same danger is incurred to some extent when a por-
tion of the provender is taken out for feeding pur-
poses, and on these occasions the precaution of cov-
ering over the exposed parts again as quickly and
completely as possible has to be observed. With
regard to the cost of the above operations, as also of
reaping, carrying, and cutting up, the total expense
is estimated not to exceed 10d. to 11d. per ton.
It may be mentioned that comfrey roots for ex-
portation are procurable from Messrs. Jas. Dickson
& Sons, of Chester, and Messrs. T. Christy & Co.,
of Fenchurch Street, London, the latter firm having
introduced a solid stem variety of extra prolific
growth.-British Trade Journal.

The British Consul at Volo has demanded the
surrender of the murderer of Mr. Ogle, Times cor-
respondent.


BRITISH PREPARATIONS. I
(From the Edinburgh Courant, March 26.)
It has been known for a fortnight past that the
Government was in treaty with Sir William Arm-
strong for the purchase of four 100-ton guns which
are near completion at Elswick, but it was consi-
dered prudent to keep the negotiations secret, as
there were other bidders in the European market
for the monster weapons. Arrangements are now
completed by which these four guns have become
the property of the British nation, and in the course
of two or three months they will he ready for
mounting on board any ship which is prepared to
carry them. It is not likely, however, that they
will be placed on shipboard for some time, for the
naval authorities have made no provision for them;
neither does it appear that the present condition of
naval armaments exhibit any demand for such
mighty ordnance. The chief argument for their
acquirement was the apprehension that they might
become the property of another Power, and so en-
able it to dominate the seas. At present, although
Italy has 100-ton guns for her two latest warships,
and England has ready her 80-ton guns for the
Inflexible, there is no armour afloat which can re-
sist the 85-ton and 38. ton Woolwich Infants,"
which have during the last few years been produced
at the Royal Gun Factories, and employed in the
national defences by land and sea. The subject has
fully engaged the attention of the Government, and
the desirability of manufacturing something heavier
than the 80-ton gun has been strongly advocated,
but while foreign nations plate their ships with any-
thing less than 191 inches of iron they are regarded
as at the mercy of the 8001b Palliser bolt from the
88-ton gun, and the authorities have hesitated
about taking a step still further in advance. The
reflection, however, that the Inflexible, the toughest
ship afloat, with its 24 inches of iron armour, would
be defenceless against the 100-ton guns which Italy
possesses, and some other Power might have pos-
sessed, has now induced the Government to con-
clude the present purchase, and furthermore to con-
sider whether they should stop at this point. It is
pretty well authenticated that the Italians have
provided themselves with a steel-plated target,
which even their 100-ton guns cannot penetrate,
and that they are preparing a ship which shall be
defended with this identical armour. In view of
this circumstance, and knowing that it will take
less time to plate a ship than to build a gun, the
War Department is deliberating upon the produc-
tion of a much more powerful piece of artillery, and
-it is expected that an order will be given before:
long to the Royal Gun Factories for a gun of over
200 tons. The drawings for such a weapon were
prepared long since, the machinery is all prepared
for making it, and all that is wanted is
the order to proceed. Such a gun would throw a
shot of some three tons weight, and pierce three
feet of solid armour. It would, however, take two
years to make, and perhaps another year for expe-
riments, but the building of a ship which would
have a chance, even with the guns of the present
day, would take at least as long. A Press Associ-
ation telegram says :-The four 100-ton guns pur-
chased by the Government from Sir William Arm.,
strong, will, at least until the navy is prepared to
receive them, be mounted for land defence at Mal-
ta, Gibraltar, or at home. It is considered unlikely
that either of them will be taken to Woolwich for
experiments, as the Government have the advan-
tage of the knowledge gained by the trial of a gun
of similar calibre by the Italian authorities.
The large basin at Woolwich Dockyard is, after
several years' disuse, to be again utilised, and two
hired transports, which are embarking stores for
the Mediterranean fleet, will enter the basin for that
purpose. Three acres of waste marsh land are be-
ing reclaimed and added to Woolwich Arsenal.
The War Office has decided to adopt for military
purposes six-chamber revolvers manufactured by
the Adams Small-Arms Company, and large orders
are now being executed, so that non-commissioned
officers, trumpeters, and farriers of all cavalry regi-
ments may be at once armed with the weapon, in
accordance with a recommendation of the recent
committee on equipment.
Four-fifths of the Hull Artillery Corps, 700
strong, have volunteered for foreign service.
An American inventor named Bailey, of India-
nopolis, U.S., has sent to England, and proposes
placing at the disposal of our War Office, the most
wonderful specimen of a Gatling gun which has
ever been produced. This formidable engine of
destruction is guaranteed to fire from 1000 to 1500
shots per minute, directed so as to sweep a whole
line without alteration. It is also entirely self-
loading.
