before the arrival of the vessel at Bermuda. Every
precaution has been taken by the Health Officer to pre-
vent any communication with the vessel, and he was
prompt in laying the matter before His Excellency
the Governor, who manifested every interest in the
quarantine regulations being stringently carried out,

the vessel despatched from these waters speedily. His

We are informed that the number of seamen called
up by Russia under the recent proclamation of the
Grand Duke Constantine amounts to 3,600 men
These, added to the 2,000 conscripts called up in the
ordinary course of things last autumn, raises the
number of sailors to 5,600 in excess of those with
which Russia commenced her last campaign. Two
" crews," consisting of 2,400 men, are to remain at
Cronstadt, and one comprising half that number is to
be placed at the disposal of the authorities at Nicolai-
eff.-Army and Yavy Gazette, April 27.
The Standard says-" Information has reached us,
from a source on which we can rely, that a party of
Russian officers of Engineeis-a colonel, major, and
eleven others of inferior rank-arrived within the last
few days at Rome, and are now on their way to Suez
and the Persian Gulf. They will return to Russia by
way of Persia. Whilst they were at Rome they stayed
at different hotels in order not to attract too much
attention." A telegram to our contemporary, dated
Rome, Thursday, says-" The Russian party of offi-
cers of Engineers met at Naples the captains of two
American steamers which had been chartered by them,
and are now waiting orders in the Levant, probably at
Rhodes or Cyprus, so that the party will sail under
American colors. The superior officer goes with some
of the party direct to the Pirueus ; the second officer,
with the rest, to Brindisi, thence to Alexandria. Nine
cases of surveying instruments have been sent by them
to Egypt. The superior is in possession of the Jamous
French staff map of the Lower Euphrates given to him
in Berlin, where it was obtained by M. D'Oubril. The
party carry German passports, in which the names
Indemann and Flessenberg appear. They have also
American papers, in the names of Wilson, Cleark and
Macklinworth. None of the party will appear as
Facts Disclosed Tending to Prove the Real Charac-
ter of Captain Grippenberg and his "Passengers."-
[By Telegraph to the Herald.J-ELLSWORTH, Me.,
May 8,1878.-The Cimbria Spinx still awaits (Edi-
pus The apparently frank and hearty seaman,
Captain Badenhausen, lets fall no incautious word,
and the blue glasses of Captain Grippenberg do
not suffer even his eyes to betray him. The eager-
ness with which the plan of cruising in the Pacific
is put forth by these officers suggests that they an-
ticipate a different destination. Yet we must not
deny weight to the fact that Captains Badenhausen
and Grippenberg have both just returned from ser-
vice en the eastern coast of Asia.
The Passengers.-The "1 passenger" hypothesis is
still kept up with studious care. For instance, as
your correspondent was walking on shore with
Captain Grippenberg, three of the men met us and
gave the military salute, but after that the Captain
turned his face away or looked down, and they en-
tirely ceased to salute. When I called the Cap-
tain's attention to this lax discipline he refused to
reply, but they frequently let fall observations as to
the orders given these so-called tradesmen which
are wholly inconsistent with the ship's papers, and
Captain Grippenberg's card bears these significant
letters, R. I. N."
Danger of, the Cimbria in Case of War-Prepared
for all Emergencies. -ELLSWORTH, Me., May 8, 1878.
-It is to be feared that a declaration of war be-
tw(en Russia and England would put the steamer
Cimbria in great danger. Although England has
adhered to the principle that neutral ships make
neutral gods, and has found occasion to emphasize
to the United States that free ships make free pas-
sengers, the suspicion attaching to this vessel is so
great that an English cruiser would be justified in
taking her into a port to be tried by the courts.
Her stay in Southerst Harbor has alone furnished
enough evidence to prove in court that the pre-
tended passengers are Russian naval officers and
seamen. Under such evidence the Cimbria might
be confiscated for conveying an enemy's forces and
her passengers made prisoners of war.
The Captain Ready for Emergencies. Captain
Badenhausen, however, is not to be alarmed by
Wheaton." lie keeps up a little steam in the
small boiler and has had the cylinder heads un-
screwed to clean. He says he can get up full steam
and weigh anchor in one hour at any time. He is
waiting for orders and further developments.-New

CAPTAIN D'ARCY IRVINE TO BELLEROPHON."-
The Army and Navy Gazette of the 27th April says :
Captain D'Arcy Irvine will leave England on Tues-
day with Admiral Sir Edward Inglefield, and will re-
lieve Captain Fisher in the Bellerophon."
The arrival, of the Royal Mail Steamer Alpha which
left here on the evening of the 2nd instant for Halifax,
was not announced at New York up to the sailing
thence on the morning of the 9th instant, of the Canima.
This, doubtless, is attributable to neglect of the Tele-

count of the events of the day in our next issue.
From the Army and Navy Gazette, April 27.
Dr. Henry Domville, C.B., will not be called upon
to resign his appointment as Principal Medical Officer
at the Naval Hospital at Stonehouse until December
next, although his term of appointment has now ex-
pired. The reason for this officer being retained is,
that in December next he will attain the age for re-
tirement, and their Lordships have decided to allow
him to remain in employment until the necessity for
his removal shall arise,
Lieutenat-Colonel D. M. M. Crichton, Grenadier
Guards, has been selected to proceed to Malta as As-

try, and A. W. L. Rickards, Royal Scots, being ap-
It is stated in St. Petersburg that the intention of
Russia to despatch seamen to America to man the
cruisers she purposed purchasing there was frustrated
by the representations of Her Majesty's Government.
This, backed up by similar representations on the part
of Count Schouvaloff, caused the Grand Duke Con-
stantine to postpone his project for the present, and
compelled those officials of the St. Petersburg Ad-
miralty who had already packed up their portman-
teaus to proceed to New York to return disconsolate
to the caf6s on the Nevsky. How near the project
was of being carried into execution may be gathered
from the circumstance that the seamen's baggage had
already been sent to the Warsaw railway station for
transmission to Hamburg. It is now arranged that
the American vessels purchased by Russia-three in
number-shall be dispatched fully equipped to Cron-
stadt, and there receive their proper crews.

ST. GEORGE'S SOCIETY.
ANNUAL SERMON IN ST. JAMES' CATHE-
fFromethe Toronto Daily Globe, April 22.
The annual sermon in behalf of the charitable
fund of St. George's Society, Toronto, was preached
yesterday afternoon, in St. James' Cathedral, by.the
Rev. John Pearson, Chaplain of the Society. The
centre aisles of the edifice were filled with members
of the St. George's and the Sons of England Bene-
The Rev. Mr. Pearson preached from the follow-
"If I forget thee, 0 Jerusalem, let my right
hard forget her cunning."--Ps. cxxxvii., 5.
The Psalter was more generally known as the
Book of the Psalms of David, notthat allthe psalms
were written by him, but because he was the au-
thor of the greater portion. At the time of the
foundation of the second temple they were collected
in one book. Those psalms not written by David
were easily to be distinguished from the remainder,
because of the references made in them. The psalm
under consideration was one of the latter class, and
must have been written by some unhappy Hebrew
who had been carried away into captivity. In
selecting this text .as the subject of his discourse
he did not mean to say that the Englishmen resi-
ding in Canada altogether resembled the Hebrews
in Babylon, for the former were here of their own
free will while the latter were held in captivity.
The Jews had their Jerusalem in Palestine, but the
Englishman found his Jerusalem in England.
There he beheld the land of his birth, the home of
the free and the cradle of liberty. From the time
when the religious, social and political life of Eng-
land emerged from the chaos of semi-barbarism and
was consolidated by the great Alfred, who left
his mark on all our laws, there was one great prin-
ciple prominent-a recognition of personal liberty.
In the time of the Conqueror, the Plantagenets,
the Tudors, and the Stuarts, that liberty was
threatened ; but the sentiment of England was un-
mistakable and remained triumphant. John at
Runnimeade; James II., when he fled in the dark-
ness of night, and abdicated a throne which he
dared not defend with the sword, were compelled
to bow in recognition of that principle. After re-
ferring to the attempt, so far successful, to trans-
plant the free institutions of England into Canada,
he mentioned that free institutions did not ensure
happiness. The ancient Grecians and Romans in
their republics possessed all the political freedom it
was necessary to enjoy, but they did not enjoy
happiness. Men needed to fit themselves for free-
dom in order to make that freedom a real blessing.
As it was true that national prosperity was the
sum of individual enterprise, so national moral
greatness was the sum of individual virtue and
influence, Englishmen had always been imbued
with a sense of right-they recognized that
to fear GoD and to keep.His commandments was
the sole duty of man. True manliness was ano-
ther feature of the true Englishman. True re-
ligion and true manliness always went together;
and the lives of great Englishmen from Alfred
to Havelock illustrated that. They knew no fear
but the fear of GoD. A mistake was made by
some ministers in presenting Christianity in such
a form as to persuade men that in order to
embrace it they must give up everything manly;
but such was not the case. Englishmen possessed
a high sense of duty, and no true Englishman
would neglect his duty. The unfortunate Cap-
tain of the Eurydice was seen discharging his
duties to the last, and even when his vessel was
sinking benenth the waves. A high sense of hon-
our and integrity were also needed to represent the
true Englishman, and added to those the duty of
charity was recognized and inculcated. He con-
cluded by pointing out charity as one of the prin-
cipal objects of the St. George's Society, and he
said they were bound together for the better recog-
nitiofi of that idea, irrespective of political opinions
or religious creeds.
A liberal collection was taken up.
From the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser, May 2.
CAPTAIN ERICSSON BUILDING A WON-
DERFUL TORPEDO BOAT.
Of the pending contracts with the Russian Gov-
ernment it is known that at least one of some im-
portance has been consummated, viz., for the
manufacture of 6,000 tons of metal used in making
ammunition. The contract is for three years, and
calls for the delivery of 2,000 tons per annum.
What kind of m'tal is referred to and the condi-
tions as to war risks are questions asked but not
answered. In regard to other matters in which the
Russians are concerned the remark is made that
4" delay is characteristic."
( captain Ericsson building a Steam Torpedo Boat.
-The event of the day among naval architects
and experts in gunnery is the construction of an
iron steam torpedo boat for Captain Ericsson of
propeller fame, which is now well advanced at the
foundry of Delamater & Co., foot of Thirteenth
street, North River. Almost the entire framework
is up, including the sternpost and stein. The ribs
are of well finished angle iron, fitted in pairs and
strongly fastened, while the sternpost is a single
mass ot iron containing an oiifice tor the propellor
shaft. Half a dozen ribs in the frame work are
brought together so as to make a corresponding
support for the shaft or b-arings. But the striking
peculiarity is another opening very similar as to
size and position at the opposite extremity of the
vessel, cut through the solid iron stem. Through
this it is conjectured (for no one about the estab-
lishment is at liberty to say anything) that the
torpedo will be worked.
In.the absence of more definite information, re-
port says this craft is intended for the Navy I)e-
partment at Washington; that the design is by
Captain Ericsson, and that she is intended for a
new description of torpedo, worked by compressed air.
According to predictions, she will prove to be very
destructive, capable of sending a submarine missile
with terrible force; the latter at the same time being
guided at will toward the enemy or made to return
harmlessly to the place of starting, while the craft
itself will lay deep in the water, almost invisible.
It is declared by one who is familiar with the gen-
eral subject, though probably not well informed as
to details, that "she will astonish the world;"
also, that Captain Ericeson, if expectations are re-
alized, will gain for himself a wide renown. It
should be observed, however, that this torpedo boat
is not formidable in size, the entire length being
only 115 feet, while the width and model through-
out seem especially intended for speed. Both ends
are veiy sharp, the bow being wedge-shape, remind-
ing one of the swiftest North River steamers.
Steam Launches for Cuba.-Two steamer, forty-
five feet in length, built for the Spanish Govern-
ment and intended for service in Cuba, have just
been finished at Delamater's foundry, and will
probably be shipped entire on some large sailing
vessel. Another plan is to send them by canal, via
Philadelphia, down the Atlantic coast, and thence
to their destination, when the weather is favorable.
They are built with twin screws, And the engines are
very fine specimens of work. It is said they will be
employed against the insurgents at the East end of
the island, running up creeks with foraging parties
on board, cr retreating, when necessary, at high
speed. They cost together about $10,000.
Fromr the New York Herald, May 2.
SCRANTON COAL SOLD.
The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Rail-
road Company, through Draper & Co., yesterday
offered 50,000 tons of Scranton coal at auction.
While the attendance of buyers was smaller than
usual the bidding was quite spirited, and there
was a noticeable advance in prices over the March
sale by the same company. The 50,000 tons were
divided in 20,000 tons of stove size, 10,000 tons of
grate, 7,000 tons each of egg and chestnut sizes
and 6,000 tons of steamboat. The steamboat was
first offered and was started at $2-75, but rose
steadily to $3-30, when the demand was so large
that Mr. Draper at once demanded an advance, and
the remainder was sold at $3-321. The grate size
was started at the same price, but the bids advanced
rapidly to $3-30, at which rate the whole 10,000
tons were sold. The egg size was started at $2-75
and r(se rapidly to $3845 at which price the whole
was disposed of. The stove size was started at
$3, but the desire to obtain it was so apparent that
it rose rapidly to $3-771, at which price a large
quantity was sold. A slight lull caused it to fall
to $3'75; but the demand appeared so great that
Mr. Draper demanded more money, and the last
lots were sold at $3'80. There did not appear
to be much demand for chestnut and slowly the
price advanced from the starting point until it
reached $3-15 at which rate the whole was sold.
The following is a comparative table of the sales
with those on March 27:-

THE BERMUDA CHURCH SOCIETY.
The second annual general Meeting of the Ber-
muda Church Society was held, at the Court
House, Hamilton, on Friday last, 10th May. There
was as large a gathering of Ladies and Gentlemen
as could be looked for at this the busiest season of
the year, and at the mid-day hour. It would be
well, we think, on some future occasion, to have
the Society's annual Meeting in the evening, when
a much larger number of people are at leisure,
and when an opportunity would be afforded to all
classes of hearing the objects of this Association
explained, and its claims advocated.
This would be not only with advantage to those
persons who might attend the Meeting, but also
with profit to the Church Society, in the increase of
its Members, and the augmentation of its funds.
The Meeting on Friday last was called to order
by the Hon. E. HARVEY, who kindly consented to
take the Chair. After prayers, by the Revd. M.
JAMES, the Committee's Report was read by the
The Resolutions, which we subjoin, were then
proposed and seconded.
The cause of the Society was pleaded with much
earnestness and eloquence by the several Speakers,
and we can only hope that their words and their
efforts may have the effect of awakening a deeper
and more widespread interest in the work which it
It was shown that the movement in which the
Church Society originated was not premature, did
not come one moment too soon, but might, with
good results, have been made many years ago:
that this Association of Churchmen is a most impor-
tant bond of union between the several Parishes,
and is bright with hope for the future welfare of
the Church, as tending to arouse all to a sense of
the obligation implied in the inspired maxim,
which hitherto has been too much overlooked,
that the Members of the one Body "should have
the same care one for another, and whether one
Member suffer all the Members suffer with it, or
one Member be honored all the Members re-
joice with it." If it have only this effect the
Church Society will not have been formed in vain.
It was also strongly urged by several Speakers
that the existence of the Church Society is not
rendered unnecessary by the renewal of the public
grant for the payment of the Ministers of religion
-for if, by any possibility, the aid from the Trea-
sury could be made certain for ever, there would
still be abundant work for this Society to do, in
raising an Episcopal Endowment Fund, in increas-
ing the stipends of the Clergy, and in augmenting
the Clerical Staff.
The arguments of those who are opposed to the
principle of endowment were also met, by showing
that this is the principle upon which the mother
Church is, humanly speaking, based: and that in
a community so small, and composed of such ele-
ments as this, it would be most unwise to depend
solely upon a source so precarious as annual volun-
tary contributions, for the supply of the entire
funds needed for sustaining the Church in efficiency
in these Islands.
Many suggestions were also made of means
which might be employed for enlisting the sympa-
thies of all classes of society in the work of this
Association, for giving to all, without exception,
the opportunity of contributing to the support of
the Church, and for gathering in not only large
and costly offerings from the rich, but also small,
even minute donations, from those not largely en-
dowed with this world's good.
The following resolutions were unanimously
1.-Proposed by THos. S. REID, Esq., Seconded by
the Revd. 3M. JAMEs: That the Report which
has just been read be adopted by this Meeting
2.-Proposed by S. BROWNLaw GnAY, Esq., Second-
ed by Rev. J. LUVLEY LOUGH: "" That in the
opinion of this Meeting the renewal by the
Legislature of the public grant in aid of the
Salaries of the Ministers of Religion in these
Islands, affords no ground for the relaxation of
effort to carry on the work of this Society;
and it is earnestly hoped that the Members
will not, on that account, discontinue their an-
3.-Proposed by the Hon. J. H. TRmmINGHAM,
Seconded by Rev. GEO. TUCKER: "That the
Bermuda Church :Society tenders its warmest
thanks to those friends of the Church in other
Countries who have so liberally come forward
to assist the Church in Bermuda through the
instrumentality of this Society."
4.-Proposed by REGINALD GEAY, Esq., Seconded
by Rev. FEn. LIGHTBOURN: That the
thanks of this Meeting be tendered to the Vice
President and other Officers of the Society for
their past services, and that the following
Gentlemen be requested to serve on the Com-
mittee for the ensuing year :-
W. R. Higinbothom, Hon. E. Harvey,
S. C. Outerbridge, Hon. J. H. Trimingham,
J. W. Pearman, S. A. Harvey,

Dr. Hunt, Thos. S. Reid,
O. T. Middleton, J. N. Wainwright.
5.-Proposed by R. D. DABBELL, Esqr., Seconded
by W. S. BARR, Esq.: "That the Thanks of
this Meeting be offered to the Hon. E. HAR-
VEY, for his kindness in presiding on this oc-
The Report shows that the financial condition of
the Society is as follows: There is invested in
Bermuda Debentures the sum of 600; and in
British three per cent. Consols 300. The balance
in hands of the Treasurer was 284 1/9, which has
been augmented since the Meeting.
The number of persons who have contributed to
the funds of the Society during the past year is
about 250; exclusive of those who have become
life members .a donation of five pounds or up-
wards. Ti1 st that each yearly meeting may
show an increase in the number of Members of the
Bermuda Church Society, and that it may go on
courageously and hopefully, in dependence on the
Divine blessing, in the great and important work
which lies before it.'
RARE TROPICAL FISHES.
One of the Aquarium expeditions that was dis-
patched some time since to the tropics to make
collections has returned, bringing quite a number
of those rare and beautiful fishes from Bermuda
waters. There are fifty-four of the vari-colored
angel fishes, nine curious cray fishes, twenty
black and twelve yellow grunts, twelve school-
masters-a remarkable looking fish, thirteen breams
twenty red squirm fishes, besides hamlets, cow-
pilots, pheebes and other kinds. There are also
six syllarisor Bermuda lobsters with several colors,
some 200 of the most beautiful anemones, and a
sea fan upon which there are living pearl oysters.
Some of the specimens from deep sea dredging are
extremely rare and beautiful. With the exception
of those received last year, these fishes and marine
.curiosities are the first ever brought to this country.
Quite a number of them were contributed by Mr.
C. M. Allen, our consul at Hamilton, Bermuda,
from his preserve. The expedition was under the
charge of Prof. H. Haase, of Germany.-New York
Paper, May 9.
[Mr. Ilaase, the collector of the above, is again in
Bermuda for a further collection of our marine
wonders. This is his final trip for this year.]
BERMUDA PRODUCE IN THE NEW YORK MARKET.-
We regret to learn that our vegetable pro-
ducts shipped to New Ybrk this spring have not
generally obtained remunerative prices. This is
not to be wondered at when, in very many cases,
we are credibly informed, that trash-called onions
and tomatoes has,been shipped-onions, without
bulbs, mere stalks and quite hard-tomatoes so
young and green as not to possess even the least
flavour of that, delicious, when ripe, vegetable.
These reports come to us from abroad, and we
thought that they, to some extent, might be toned by
the marketmen. But oh Wednesday last, some speci-
mens of tomatoes from a box (one of three) marked
"AA 1.", which had fallen from a dray and was
crushed by one of the wheels of the dray passing
over it-were brought to our office by some gentle-
men who witnessed the accident. These tomaatoes
were on their way to Hamilton, from one of the up-
per parishes, for sale, for shipment to New Yor k.
Some idea of their size may be formed,
when we state the fact, that ten of them, when
weighed-which we took the trouble to do-barely
turned the scale at three and three quarter ounces! Is
it therefore to be wondered at when such dishonesty
is practised by some in these Islands, that our ve-
getable productions do not obtain better prices in
New York, which is our principal market.
IWhat does the New York Herald of the 1st in-
stant say in its report of the Country Produce
"Tomatoes from Bermuda $1 @ 1-25c per box,
quality being poor.
Tomatoes from Nassau, N.P., quality choice,
$1*50c @ $2 per box.
Have not the Bermuda vegetable productions of
the various kinds, hitherto exceeded in quality and
consequently in the price obtained, of every similar
vegetable exposed for sale in that market, in the
spring and early summer ? Are we then in the fu-
ture, only to hold a second position, or perhaps no
position at all, if those dishonest people are not in
some way or other checked in their wicked practi-
ces. If the evil consequences of such deeds could
be made to fall on the wicked ones alone, it would
only be a just retribution; but the whole Island
suffers-the most careful and honest, in common
We stated that there were three boxes of the A.
1." article on the dray from which the one fell and
was crushed, exposing the specimens brought us--
the other two reached Hamilton safely, and were
offered to a merchant on the Front street, who with
very commendable precaution opened them, and at
once discovered the treachery of the intended ven-
dor. It is to be regretted that the gentleman did
not at once have him taken before a magistrate
and punished for his fraudulent intentions. The
name of the packer can be obtained at our of-
fice, as well as that of the drayman, the latter, how-
ever, promptly came forward to exhonerate himself
of any complicity in the dishonest intention of the
Attempts have been made by some members of
the Legislature to divise measures of inspection of
our agricultural productions before shipment, but
have proved unsuccessful. It is now so evidently
necessary'that it becomes imperative on our Law
Makers to do something to protect the honest farmer
and to save the agricultural interests of our Island
generally from the natural consequences of such
We notice that an additional few of the shippers
of vegetables have this year had their names in full
placed on their packages. This will be a guaran-
tee to their agents and a warrantry to the Market-
man in New York; but will not prevent a deprecia-
tion in the value of the vegetables generally, con-
sequent on the discovery of those truly dishonest

Men deemed thee fallen, did they P fallen like Rome,
Coiled into self to foil a Vandal throng:
Not wholly shorn of strength, but vainly strong;
Weaned from thy fame by a too happy home,
Scanning the ridges of thy teeming loam,
Counting thy flocks, humming thy harvest song,
Callous, because thyself secure, againstt wrong,
Behind the impassable fences of the foam!
The dupes! Thou dost but stand erect, and lo!
The nations cluster round; and while the horde
Of wolfish backs slouch homeward to their snow,

Towerest supreme, victor without a blow,
Smilingly leaning on thy undrawn sword.
The following, clipped from the New York
Herald of the 2nd instant, has been kindly handed
NEw YORK, May 1, 1878.-To the Editor of the
Herald:-I am this moment in receipt of a cable
despatch from Messrs. Latimer & Co., of St. John's,
Porto Rico, advising me that the importation of
potatoes into that Island has been prohibited,
which information they desire to have made public
for the benefit of exporters. Very respectfully.
HENRY BESTE, No. 47 South Street.
This letter does not state, and we cannot under-
stand why, potatoes are excluded from the Island
of Porto Rico, unless indeed the authorities dread
the introduction of the Colorado beetle that
great enemy of the potato plant: but, as the Irish
potato, this insect's special favorite, is not pro-
duced in that Island, we presume they are appre-
hensive of its destructiveness, should it be in-
troduced, on the native vegetable productions
generally. A similar restriction on the same article
was enforced by the authorities of Porto Rico
about two years since.
We are sorry to notice that the Colorado beetle
has found its way, in a lot of potatoes from the
United States, to Australia.

THE FENIANs ANQ.-A Syracuse paper of the
7th May, says that Colonel Mulligan of Chicago,
the well known Fenian agitator, makes no bones of
avowing, that he can summon 100,000 men in 30
hours, and that his intention is to make an invasion
into Canada in the event of a war between England
ENGLAND AND RUSSIA.
LONDON, May 9.-The Paris Estafette reports that
for the past few days numerous detachments of Rus-
sian sailors have been passing through France and
embarking at Havre, and even Liverpool, for Ame-
rica to man vessels purchased there by the Rus-
Assuring England.-The Agence .Russe of St. Pe-
tersburg says Russia bhs no thought of setting
aside England's legitimate influence or exercising
exclusive preponderance of power in Turkey. This
is shown by the fact that despite Russian sacrifices
English influence is still predominant at Constanti-
Peaceful Feeling in England.-The good impression
in regard to the political situation continues to pre-
Sir Stafford Hopeful.-Sir Stafford Northcote,
Chancellor of the Exchequer, addressed a deputa-
tion at Oxford yesterday. In the course of his re-
marks the Chancellor said that the Government
were still engaged in difficult negotiations, but had
hopes, despite all misrepresentation, of arriving at
a peaceful settlement.
Schouvaloff s Mission.-The good impression cre-
ated by the news of the journey of Count Schouva-
loff, Russian Ambassador here, to St. Petersburg is
strengthened by the fact that he had long interviews
with Lord Salisbury, Foreign Secretary, and Lord
Beaconsfield, the Premier, before his departure. It
is believed that be takes the British reply to cer-
tain enquiries and proposals determined upon at St.
Petersburg ten days ago, having in view both the
withdrawal of the Russians and British from Con-
stantinople and the facilitating of the assembling of
High Hopes of Success.-Count Schouvaloff will
arrive in St. Petersburg on Saturday or Sunday,
and is expected back here in two weeks from to-
day, so nothing decisive will be known until next
week. High hopes are entertained in the best
diplomatic quarters of the results of his mission.
Will Consult Bismarck.-A special despatch to
the Standard from Berlin states that Count Schou-
valoff will visit Prince Bismarck on his return
from St. Petersburg.
It Depends on Encland.-The St. Petersburg cor-
respondent of the Times says if Count Schouvaloff
can convince his government that the British Cab-
inet really desires a peaceful solution on the basis
of securing the chief object of the war-namely,
real improvement in the condition of the subject
races in Turkey-a great impetus will be given to
Russia desires an Understanding.-The Daily News'
St. Petersburg correspondent, referring to Count
Schouvaloff's mission, says the Russians earnestly
desire an understanding with England. They be-
lieve it:will be*better for Russian interests than an
agreement with Austria, and wish to unite with
England for the benefit of the Christians and to
Russia fears Humiliation.--The only fear is that
England may make proposals humiliating to Rus-
sia. It is generally believed that in Vienna and
Berlin very little desire is felt to see the negotia-
tions between Russia and England succeed.
England's Final Demand.-The Daily Telegraph
has the following from its Vienna correspondent:-
"Count Schouvaloff takes with him what may be
considered as England's irreducible minimum.
Simultaneously M. De Novikoff, the Russian Am-
bassador at Vienna, will be informed that Austria
maintains the objections she has already made.
Paring Down Ignatief's Scheme.-I hear from a
high official source that when the English and
Austrian reclamations are acceded to, little or
nothing of General Ignatieff's scheme will remain.
Austria Opposed to Montenegro.-" Montenegro
and Servia are giving much offence to Austria.
Of Montenegro aggovernment organ says: -' Aus-
tria protests against the extention of the principa-
lity to the Adriatic, and will under no circum-
stances permit it.'"
Indian Troope Pass Aden.-A. despatch from
Aden dated yesterday says that a number of the
British transports conveying the Indian contin-
gent passed here to-day.
The Queen to Review the Troops.-The Queen will
review the troops at Aldershot on Monday.
Iron.-Clads at Port Said.-A British and a Ger-
man iron-clad have arrived at Port Said from
Not Threatening the Bosphorus. The rumors
lately current in Constantinople about a Russian
concentration at Pyrgos, threatening the upper
Bosphorus, are untrue.
Advancing on Batoum.-The news of a Russian
advance on Batoum by way of the Choruk Valley
is unimportant, because that road is impracticable
The Turkish Fortresses.-The Porte's answer a-
bout the evacuation of the fortresses has been sent
to St. Petersburg.. So important a change of the
situation is unlikely until the Russian rejoinder is
returned. A Russian coup de main is no longer
dreaded or believed to be possible in view of the
condition and numbers of the Turkish army. Ac-
cording to the Turkish view 'the Russians ought to
withdraw beyond Adrianople so as to occupy ,the
line fixed as the eastern limit of Bulgaria.
A. tlow Method.-1The Turks, however, propose to
surrender the places one after the other, so as to
allow the Muscovites time to perform their part of
the engagement. Should this method be followed
Shumla will probably be first, Varna second and
Batoum last surrendered.
Very Like Withdrawal.-The greater part of the
Russian provisions and ammunition has been re-
moved from San Stefano to Chataldja. Commis-
sariat contracts signed yesterday make Adrianople
the point of delivery hereafter.
Resuming Diplomatic Relations.-Prince Lobanoff
was to leave St. Petersburg yesterday to assume
the post of Russian Ambassador at Constantinople.
Turkish Prisoners to be Detained.-Specials from
Berlin state that Russia has decided to refuse to
liberate the Turkish prisoners of war, numbering
about sixty thousand, in consequence of the uncer-
tainty that the Porte will maintain neutrality in
the event of war between England and Russia.
The Austro-Hungarian Credit.-Bills will be pres-
ented in the Austrian and Hungarian Legislatures
to-day asking authority for the respective Minis-
ters of Finaace to arrange the form in which the
money voted by the delegations shall be raised.
As to the motives for the step the explanation is
likely to be general, merely aiming to show that
the government should be enabled to take those
precautionary military measures, both on the east-
ern and southern frontiers, which in the opinion of
the Ministers cannot well be much longer delayed.
Military Precautions.-These precautionary mea- I
sures are likely to consist of concentrations in i
Transylvania, Crotia and Dalmatia, covering the
three frontiers exposed to Russia or her allies. The ]
proposed measures will not be on a very important
scale. In Transylvania quarters for 15,000 men i
have been ordered. The forces on the Servian I
and Montenegrin frontiers will be smaller. The t
idea of occupying Bosnia has quite retired into the
Return of Count Zichy.-Count Zichy, the Austro-
Hungarian Ambassador at Constantinople, has re-
turned to that city, where pourparlers about the re-
patriation of refugees will be continued.
Opposed to Servian Aggrandizement.-The proposed
annexation of the island of Adah-Kaleb, in the
Danube, to Servia is opposed by Turkey and Aus-
tria. The Porte will probably cede it to Austria.
The Insurgent Mussulmans.-The Turkish commis-
sioners at Phillippopolis reports that the Rhodope
insurrection is still unchecked. The correspondent
at Constantinople of the Daily News, who repre-
sents the Russian idea, reiterates the statement that
the insurrection was never serious and will termi-
nate without coercion as soon as the insurgents
are convinced that they are not included in New
Roumania on the Qui Vive.-All officers of the
Roumanian army now on furlough have been or-
dered io join their regiments in Little Wallachia,
whither Prince Charles will go shortly to inspect
the entire army.
Russian Reinforcements.-Forty thousand Russian
reinforcements are expected at Jassy.
Trouble in Montenegro.-The Standard's Vienna
despatch says anarchy reigns in the newly annexed
districts of Montenegro. Albanians, Christians
and Moslems refuse submission to the Prince of
Montenegro, and war may break out at any mo-
ment. The Austrian government has telegraphed
to Smyrna ordering three men-of-war there to
proceed to Cattaro.
LoNDON, May 8.-The Herald's special corres.
pondent at St. Petersburg telegraphs that the capi-
tal is greatly exercised regarding a quarrel that has
occurred at the Imperial palace. It appears that
the French Ambassador, General Le FIP, who has
returned from Paris, called upon the Emperor
Alexander on Monday and had a long audience.
In answer to an inquiry from the Czar as to what
France would do in the event of war General
Le Flo replied that France would certainly not in-
terfere in favor of either belligerent.
France Speaks by Experience.--The Emperor was
greatly offended at this remark, and some ill-tem-
pered language followed. The result was that the
French Ambassador concluded the interview by
saying :-" France has paid sufficiently dear for the
right which she now claims to steer clear of other
rWant to go Home.-This rejoinder was received
by the Czar in such high dudgeon that General Le
Fib has declared his intention to ask to be recalled.
It will be remembered that General Le Fl6 asked
to be relieved recently on account of grief and de-
pression of spirits growing out of the death of his
LoNDON, May 6.-Parliament re-opened to-day
after the Easter recess.
In the House of Commons notice was given of
various questions regarding the employment of
Sir Stafford Northcote, Chancellor of the Ex-
chequer, in reply to a question asked by the Mar-
quis of Hartington (leader of the Liberals), said:
"I can only say that negotiations with Russia con-
tinue. It would be highly disadvantageous to the
public interest to discuss them now."
Sir Stafford Northcote further said that the dis-
patch of Indian troops was resolved upon some
time ago, but it was not thought necessary to com-
municate that intention to Parliament.
The Chancellor also said that although Mr. John
Bright was not in the House, he (the Chancellor)
claimed the right to refer to Mr. Bright's charge
that the Government and Sir Stafford Northcote in
particular, had deceived the House. He hoped
Mr. Bright would make that charge in the House.
In the House of Commons Sir William Vernon-
Harcourt queried the right of the Government to
employ Indian troops without the consent of Par-
Sir Stafford Northcote defended the act as con-
stitutional, being merely a movement of troops
from one part to another part of the Empire. "The
Government," he said, "did not publish the news
and did not expect it to become public so soon.
The Government's policy still is to obtain an ami-
cable settlement, but it may be disappointed. It
therefore feels that it is its duty to take precautions.
The expenses of the Indian troops will be borne by
the Imperial Exchequer." He also said he appre-
hended that they would serve under the Indian
Sir George Campbell, who was formerly Lieu-
tenant-Governor of Bengal, declared that some
regiments which were included in the expeditionary
force were unfit to cope with Europeans.
Mr. Rylands, (Liberal) considered that the Gov-
ernment had been guilty of a direct suppression of
Mr. Fawcett (Liberal) declared that if the leaders
of the opposition abstained from action he would
submit a resolution protesting against the assump-
tion by the Executive of authority to emply Indian
troops without the consent of Parliament. If the
Government could take such a step upon their own
authority parliamentary control was meaningless.
British Armament.-LoNDoN, May 6.-The com-
ing week will be an unusually busy one at the
English Arsenals and dockyards. Shipowners who
hitherto have been privileged to berth their vessels
in proximity to the Admiralty moorings opposite
the victualling yard at Deptford have received
notice to remove them by to-day, as all the room
available is to be reserved for transports. The re-
ports of recruiting officers for the past month show
a remarkable increase in the number of enlistments
for the army, and the increase is still advancing at
a steady rate.
A Russian correspondent writes from Cracow that
the Russian Government is said to. owe the com-
pany victualling the army 20,000,000 roubles. The
company must suspend unless paid immediately.
Eighty thousand persons visited the Paris Exhi.
bition on Sunday.
The British consuls have pacified the Macedonian
insurrection on the same terms as in Thessaly.
The British Government has ordered a million
pounds' weight of lint and other appliances for
Le Nord, the Russian organ, denies the New
York statement that Russia has enrolled 5,000
Irishmen to invade Nova Scotia and New Bruns-
The inquiry into the murder of the late Lord
Leitrim in Dublin, resulted in the remand of the
prisoners. On articles of clothing found in some
of the prisoners' houses blood stains were found.
The county inspector of constabulary said he had
received information connecting every one of the
prisoners with the murder.
The European Pour Parlers.-LoNDoN, May 7.-
The statements of Sir Stafford Northcote, Chancel-
lor of the Exchequer, in the House of Commons
last evening are regarded as reassuring. It is also
thought that the visit of Count Schouvaloff, the
Russian Ambassador at London, to St. Petersburg
cannot be otherwise than helpful to the cause of
peace. The change, in the public opinion of Russia
in a peaceful direction is said to be very marked.
The Czar's predilections are entirely in favor of
The present endeavours are stated to be directed
in securing such an understanding between Eng-
land and Russia as will permit the assembling of
the Congress without the certainty of failure. To this
end direct communications are passing between the
two Governments with the view of ascertaining
what modifications in Europe and Asia would ren-
der the San Stefano treaty acceptable. Without
such an understanding there will be no Congress.
Reuters despatch from Constantinople announces
that General Todleben is about to retire to the lines
of Tchataldja, leaving a small force at San Stefano.
The Russians offer to fall back behind a straight
line drawn between Dedeagatch and Adrianople if
the British fleet will withdraw at the same time.
A few years ago the police of this city became
aware of the existence of a communistic conspiracy
in New York, which they believed to be extensive
and formidable. The social agitators had not then
adopted the 'modern fashion of plotting by means
of mass-meetings and processions, and delivering
treasonable menaces in the loud aside of a stage-
murderer. They met in the back rooms of beer
saloons, and other hot beds of social reform. No-
body knew their numbers, and in the mist of un-
certainty which surrounded them their figures were
perhaps exaggerated into shapes quite unlike their
true ones. What the police may have discovered
by their inquiries into the doings of these disorgan-
izers has not been divulged ; but it is no secret that
the late Commissioner Charlick died in the convic-
tion that New York slept over a volcano. Some
things that have happened during the past year
give an apparent confirmation of his fears. The
friends of disorder have thrown aside all reserve,
and proclaim in the 'public squares the purposes
which they used to:whisper in dark corners. There
is hardly a scheme of rapine, arson, and bloodshed
in the dark catalouge of revolutionary crime which
has not its open advocates to-day in the streets of
the American metroplis; and there are other cities
in which the danger is much more imminent than
in our own.

day, assures us that there is no danger of the Com-
mune, because the spiritual life is too strong in
nearly all our communities, and the party of law
and order, while religious influences remain in
force, will rise full armed for every emergency.
The popular respect for law and order is indeed
strong. But this feeling translates itself into action
only when the laws are violently defied, and the
experience of last Summer is enough to show us that
the worst excesses of Communism are. -sometimes
committed under the forms- of law. Communism
caused criminal indictment, to be returned
against good citizens of Pennsyflv4dia, who armed
themselves to support the officers of the peace in
putting down a riot, and caused militia officers
to be tried for their lives because they fired on a
murderous mob. Communism has placed some of
the worst kind of demagogues one the bench in
Pennsylvania, and these men are persecuting res-
pectable people and setting ruffians free. Commu-
munism is organizing itself into leagues and hold-
ing conventions, and asking for an alliance with
political factions, We do not believe that it can
ever be the ruling power in the United States, but it
can easily become the tyrant of certain localities, the
mining district of Pennsylvania, the turbulent qity
of San Francisco, and some other regions; and
whenever the flame of insurrection breaks out, we
in New York can hardly escape attack. It is well
to look at the situation carefully and consider how
we shall meet; above all, how we shall awake in
our children the conservative religious sentiment
which animated our fathers.-N. Y. Tribune, May 9.
THE ST. NICHOLAS HOTEL, NEW YORK.
The grand dining hall and new kitchens of the
St. Nicholas Hotel, to whioh we have before refer-
red, are already finished, although only a week has
been occupied in the work. The conversion of the
southern wing into shops deprived the hotel of its
old kitchen, but Mr. Welch solved this difficulty
by building another story over part of the billiard
room, making of it a new kitchen far better than
the original one. All the newest and best improve-
ments have been adopted, and the communications
with the dining-room are perfect. The dining-
room itself is a magnificent chamber capable of
seating a large number of guests. The wall are
decorated in the renaissance style and are orna-
mented with handsome mirrors. The coloring
throughout is rich and harmonious. The ceiling is
very beautiful. The groundwork represents a sum.
mer sky, with fleecy clouds, and across it creep
vines laden with rich foliage and luscious grapes,
around which humming birds circle. The floor is
covered with luxurious Wilton carpets and the fur-
niture is uncommonly rich and tasteful. When
the tables are set the room presents a dazzling ap-
pearance.-New York Paper, May 6.
At noon to-day the firm of S. Hawk & Co. re.
tires from the St. Nicholas Hotel and Mr. U. Welch
succeeds it. Mr. Welsh starts off with the good
will of the old firm and of the immense patronage
of years gone by. Mr. Welch will retain all the
heads~of the principal departments of the house and
make just as few changes as possible, so that the
old patrons, who continue to stop at the St,
Nicholas, may feel "at home" just as much as in
the former days of this very successful hotel. Mr.
W. T. Coale, for the past fifteen years connected
with the supply department, will assist in the ca-
tering and the same cooks will be retained. The
cutting off of the small part, mentioned in a previ-
ous letter, will improve the hotel very much and
make it pleasanter for the guests. The rate per
day hereafter for rooms in all parts of the
hotel will be three dollars and a half. The
fact that people can stop at such an elegant and
excellent hotel for such a reasonable price will be
sufficient to give it a large and profitable trade.-

[The Mr. Welch above alluded to visited Bermu-
da two years since, and it was thought at the time
that he desired to take a share in the Hamilton
Hotel. He might now, we presume, purchase the
present proprietress' interest in it, to the advantage
of all parties interested.]
For some time past opinions have been expressed
that if hawsers were fastened to the Eurydice and
several powerful Government tugs strained at the
rope simultaneously, the natural buoyancy of the ves-
sel would cause her to lift off the ground, and render
the getting of her into shallow water a matter of com-
parative ease. On a small scale this was attempted
yesterday and demonstrated the futility of this style
of operations. The Malta one of the most powerful
tugs in the navy, attached her hawser to the maintop-
mast of the Eurydice, and then steamed ahead, but
the vessel did not move, and as the attempt was evi-
dently not likely to succeed operations in that direc-
tion were discontinued. The divers were able to get
down yesterday, but did nothing worthy of
note. It is understood that a committee of officials
will sit to-day to consider the best means of raising the
wreck, and that other departments than that already
connected with the work will have something to do in
the matter.- Western Morning News, April 25.
