where these diseases are prevailing in a severe form,

THE BERLIN CONGRESS.
The first session of this important Congress was
held on Thursday last. It is announced that its
proceedings will be secret, and there will be full
scope for the speculations of those whose business
or pleasure it is to wait on its deliberations. Itf
certainly has drawn together the leading men of
Europe. The President will be Prince Bismarck,
and associated with him will be Gortschakoff, An-
drassy and Beaconsfield, a quartette of men who
both for their genius in government and their in-
fluence on national. affairs, have been seldom equal-
led. It is doubtful if the Russian Chancellor will
be able to take an active part in the discussions.
On reaching Berlin he had to be borne bodily from
the car and taken to his hotel, and all that was seen
of him was a bundle of furs and wraps. If he does
not altogether succumb to age and disease, his pres-
ence will be felt whether he joins the councils in
person or by deputy, and will be felt on the side of
peace and harmony. The bullying tactics of Igna-
tieff, the rival diplomatist, seem for the moment to
be in obeyance, though his adherents claim he will
in some way be able to give snap to the proceedings
of the Congress before they are done with. But,
for the present at least, the prospects are good for
a conciliatory tone in the deliberations of the Con-
gress, and :for peace as the result of its labours.
Since the time when Russia came swaggering be-
fore Europe with her Treaty of San Stefano the
situation has changed, and the "stand and deliver"
attitude of Ignatieff is found to be inexpedient.
The change is altogether due to the firmness of
England, and Lord Beaconsfield must have the
credit of making the Congress possible in behalf of
peace, and not a mere instrument for confirming
the demands of Russia. The feeling of confidence
is so strong in England that peace is to continue
and to become more secure,tthat a dissolution of Par-
liament is spoken of on all sides. Under the pres-
tige of success in this great diplomatic encounter
it is thought Lord Beaconsfield will aim to secure
a new lease of power for the Conservatives by a
general election. Only a few voices are heard to
point at the possibility of failure, and for the mo-
ment all believe in peace.
There has been some disposition shown to enlarge
the action of the Congress, so as to include mat-
ters, not connected with treaties, which are now
agitating parts of Europe. But it is not probable
that the Congress will consider anything more than
the treaties it is called to discuss. In Germany
there is to be a general election, and it will be hard
to keep out of sight the local excitement of the
capital where the Congress meets. Prince Bis-
marck is giving his attention to the communistic
movements and plans, which gather more force
than it is pleasant to see. The late attempts to
assassinate the Emperor are clearly traced to the
Communists, and the disgust of the people and
their awakened loyalty to the crown afford a good.
occasion for introducing measures of repression.
The present Parliament of Germany rejected early
in the session bills intended to check communism,
and though, since the attempts on the Emperor's
life, a disposition has been shown to pass them, thp
Chancellor deems it best to appeal to the people for
a legislature to pass the stricter measures he, no
doubt, deems necessary. The "man of blood and
iron" has never faltered in his purpose, and if he
can make anything out of these stupid and brutal
attempts to kill a gallant old man, he is entitled to
it. It is doubtful, however, if he will trouble the
Congress about the spectre he proposes to lay, and
the suggestions for enlarging the deliberations of
that body probable came from those who will have
little to do with it.

PRESTIGIATION AT THE MECHANICS'
HALL, HAMILTON.
"Sleight of hand" entertainments have been
given on three nights of the past week, in the Me-
chanics' Hall, Hamilton, by Signor Cavanenghi, to
the delight of large audiences. Signor Cavanenghi
is truly the greatest prestigiateur that has ever
visited Bermuda. His entertainments are exceed-
ingly moral as well as instructive, and his attempts
to Anglicise Italian are very amusing. His sleight-
of-hand tricks are startling novelties, and are per-
formed with great dexterity and elegance. The
most wonderful thing is that he does not use any

been from time to time robbed ot various articles,
"both useful and ornamental," and in some in-
stances amounting in value to hundreds of dollars;
though the police was exceedingly vigilant, spend-
ing not only days, but weeks and months, in vain
efforts to discover the thief. For some time lately
their suspicions have rested on a man residing on
the Quinnpool road, named Quinn, a well-known
stone mason, but from his respectable standing
they were afraid to cast, by any act of theirs, a shade
on his character. After a recent robbery, however,
greater suspicion than usual rested on Quinn; a
search warrant was issued, and his house during
his absence entered by the Chief of Police, who
therein discovered large quantities of silver plated
ware, cut glass, knives, sewing machines, damask
table cloths, napkins, fishing gear, crocks of butter
and sugar, .clocks, wine, beer, provisions, &c., &o.,
to the extent of three waggons load, valued at thou-
sands of dollars. Quinn was arrested and brought
to the Police Office in Halifax. He, it is said, was
looking rather crestfallen, but had evidently been
living like a prince on his burglarious provisions,
wines, &c. There were 16 gentlemen, residents of
the Arm whose houses had been robbed, attended
at the Police Office and were able to identify most
of the stolen property.

THE LATE C(APT. CIIAS. G. JONEZ, R.N.
'The following extract from the Broad Arrow re.
fers to an officer who was on this station some
years ago and who was a son of Jeremy Jones,
Esqr., for erTeral years Ordrance Storekeeper in
these Islands:,
A vacancy on the active list of post-captains is
caused by the death of Capt. Charles Gray Joner,
R.N., wh, s1e sad end by drowning, while suffering
from mental aberration, took place last week at
Haslar Hospital. Captain Jones, who was in his
fortieth year, was a gallant officer and an able sea-
man, and the news of his death has been heard
with rrgret in naval circles. He entered the Navy
in I151, joining the Wellesley, then bearing the flag
of the Earl of Dundonald, stationed in the West
Indies. At the close of the Cimean war he was
selected for appointment to the Royal yacht in
consideration of his services in H. M 's ship Cura-
coa, and the gunboat Cracker, at the capture of
Kinburn. After studying in the E'cell.nt, he re-
ceived his commission as a lieutenant in Septem-
ber, 1858, and having qualified as gunnery lieu-
tenant, served in that capacity in (the Mersey, the
Warriorand the Edgar, from which latter ship be was
promoted to commander in April, 1865. As com-
mander, Capt. Jones, after serving for three years
In the Constgu, rd in Ireland, was appointed to
Her Majesty's ship Pert, and whilst serving in that
capacity won the approval of tte Foreign Office r nd
the Admiralty for having, in conjunction with the
late Consul Livingstone, settled important "little
wars" in the neighbourhood of the Bonny, the Opo-
bo, and other oil rivets, while later on the Pert
performed valuable. services to trade in the sup-
pression of piracy inMedorah, Pirate's Creek, Me-
taba, rand ,other tributaries of the Congo. The
Pert also saw some hard service on the Brazil-
Ian and Rio Plato Stations. In October, 1873, the
Pert returned to EFigland and was paid off, Com-
mander Jones and Lieutenant C. H. Warren re-
ceiving the special commendation of their lord-
ships and the Commander-in-Chief at Plymouth
for the highly creditable condition of the ship, and
her good gunnery order in paying off. In April,
1874, followed his promotion to post rank. Cap-
tain Jones, while in the Pert, rescued a seaman
of his, ship from drowning in the Santa Lucia
Riper, jumping overboard with all his clothes on
and supporting him until rescued. For this act of
gallanlty he was awarded the bronze medal of the
Royal Humane Society. He has also received the
silver medal of the National Lifeboat Institution
for steering a lifeboat during a great gale off Ilfra-
combe, atsilver, anuff-box being also presented to
him by the crew of the lifeboat,

SOUTH AUSTRALIA.-A HAIL STORM.-
Abon! F-elti unry 12 there were some very heavy
tIfilstt,rms of unprecedented severity: at Anlahy,
the est-ate of Frederick Dutton, Esqr., the brother
of our late Agent.General, the roof of the wool
mfed, (crn.pomdA of corrugated galvaniz,-d iron, 26
amnlp, wtrs riddled with the hail as if bullets had
been tired through it. Not merely was the iron
broken, but pieces were punched out of it, leaving
Iholes large enough to put a man's thumnb through.
Sheets ot the i'on were sent to Adelaide, where I
Saw. them. One half iheet had more than twenty
snh holes in it, besides numerous dent, and cracks.
The beautiful garden at the station was almost en-
tirely destroyed for the season at least; the hail-
stoner. were piled up against the wall for a depth of
4 fe(t 6 inches, and though we have had some warm
weirthlr since, they had not entirely melted away a
foitnight after the storm, many of them measured
2 inches in length by 1I inch in breadth. Hun-
dreds of birds were killed, geese had their wings
br'.ke-n and skulls fractured, and larger animals
and men were, bruised and cut Iy the hail. The
results might have been fatal hadi they received the
fi.1 force of tI.e storm that broke the iron roof of
the wool shed. The little river was soon swelled
inmo a rushing torrent, and some little damage was
dope by the 'udhl':.n flood.
O the night (iof the 4th we had about the hea-
ii At rain ever recorded hn Adelaide in a given
time, no less than 8J inches, nearly all oflwhich fell
ip se-ven houi Oni a former occasion 8t inches
It l during twenty--'our hours. This rain has been
pretty general, and will do a vast amount of good,
itf nly in sulpplyiing the want of water for stock;
but it will also start the feed and soften the land for
ploughing.
In my last I mentioned that Messrs. Wells Bro-
thles, (Mr. George Wells, engineer, Westminster),
had offered to construct an outer harbour," or
jtLy and breakwater, at Poit Adelaide. Since
then they have made a new offer to build a screw
iile jetty. 7,S00 feet in length, with a solid break-
waterat the end, 2 000 It. long by 47 ft. wide, form-
ing a fine wharf, the jetty to go into 27 feet low-
water spring tides, and to be strong enough to
carry locomotives and trains, and of sufficient width
for four or five lines of rails, to lay down moorings
and buoys, the s hole cost to be father under 221,-
0t)0, It w. uld be a grand work, and, as Sir Wm.
Jervoi' can state, it would give an immense impetus
to South Australia. Owing to occasional accidents
to Vessel' entering our present port at night, it is
jropotpd to light the river, as it is called, with gas,
at an expense, for beacons of 6,219, exclusive ot
the cost of the gas.
I may mention a remarkable instance of a fine
potato crop grown in the south-eastern part of the
colony, in the Mount Gambier district. Fifty acres
of potatoes were sold at 11 per acre; when dug
they turned out eight tons to the acre, and were
woith on the spot over 5 per ton.
South Australia has done well compared with
ethe, countries in her contributions to the Indian
Famine Reliet Fund, as the following figu es show :
-A total population of 2,479,880, January 1st,
1878, contributed 77,950; average, 71d. per head.


THE ATTEMIP'ET) ASSAqSRINA'TION OF
Tt.E' EMPEROR WILL AM.
letler from His Mlajefty to Prince Pismarck.
The Emperor William has ndddressed the following
letter to Prince Bismarck, under date the 14th in-
stant :-" The act of a man fallen into evil ways
who attempted to take wm life, which has for so long
been protected by the merciful dispensation of Provi-
dence, has been the occasion of uncommonly numer-
ous manifestations of fidelity and affection towards
my person, whereby I have been deeply moved and
heartily gladdened. From the whole of Germany,
as well as from many places abroad, from public
an horities, cr r; onratiL.n, associations, and private
individuals of all classes of society and all ages, I
have received proofs that the heart of the people is
with its Emperor and King; that it feels with him
both in joy and sorrow. I read thesame feeling here
in every eye into which I gazed after this event, and
I am indeed deeply and warmly moved by the worthy
und elevated manner in which the Berlin population
displayed their sympathy with me. I desire that
each one who showed rme that sympathy shall know
that he thereby did my heart good, and I commission
you with that object to make this communication
public."
A deputation from the University of Berlin hav-
ing waited upon the Empenor and presented him with
an address, His Majesty, in reply, observed how
agreeable and consoling had been the innumerable
expressions of deep and cordial sympathy and de-
votion which had reached him from all portions of
the Empire, and more distant parts. They afforded
him the conviction that the attempt upon his life
was the act of a spoliatory individual, and that the
mind of the mass of the people was healthy and
uninfected. It was now the duty of each person to
devote every effort towards preserving the popula-
tion in this state of mind in the future and pre-
venting the influence of religion from being lost.

A COLOssAL LEGACY.--Mr. D. P. M'Carthy, ar-
chitect, of Barrington Street, Limerick, recently
received the following letter:-" I am directed to
inform you that the first installment of the O'Keefe
legacy has come to hand in your favor for 500,-
000. The whole or the greater portion of the five
millions left by the deceased will come to you
except the portion allowed to your brothers,
about which the Crown will decide." This vast
fortune was acquired by a cousin of Mr. M'Carthy's
named O'Keefe. Mr. O'Keefe, while only about
eighteen years of age, made his way to India,
where he enlisted as a private soldier. Through
good conduct he secured a commission, but he did
not retain.it long, believing that commerce was his
leal forte. Hie went into the opium trade, and soon
acquired a colossal fortune. Mr. O'Keefe died
unmarried in February, 1876, when Messrs. Car-
rington ai.d Whigley, solicitors, of Calcutta, ad-
vertised for friends. No fewer than 175 applicants
put in claims but they were all put aside, on inves-
tigation, in favour of Mr. M*Carthy, of Limerick,
who has four brothers, each of whom will come in
for a twenty-fifth part of the five millions and es-
tate, but Mr. M'Carthy will be the recipient of the
greater part of the fortune.


A nervous man, whose life was made miserable
by the clattering of two blacksmiths, prevailed upon
each of them to remove by the offer of a liberal pe-
cuniary compensation. When the money was paid
down, he kindly inquired what neighbourhood they
intended to remove to.-" Why, sir," replied Jack,
with a grin, Tom Smith removes to my shop, and
I move to his."
THE WAY TO TREAT INJURIEs.-If a bee stings
you, will you go to the hive and destroy it ? Would
not a thousand come upon you ? If you receive
a trifling injury do not go about the streets pro-
claiming it and be anxious to avenge it. Let it
drop. It is wisdom to say little respecting the in-
juries you may have received.

DISTURBANCES IN RUSSIA.
General Trepoff, head of the Russia Police, while
visiting the prison at St. Petersburg in July last, or.
dered Bogoluboff, a political prisoner, to his cell
for impertinence. The young man, indignant, did


not salute, and the General ordered him to be
flogged with birch twigs. The order created great
excitement in society, and Vera Sasulitob, a young
lady of 26, daughter of an officer in the Line, de-
termined to avenge it. She therefore shot General
Trepoff, who fell seriously but not mortally wound-
ed. She was tried on the 19th ultimo, and ac-
knowledged her crime and its motives and the
jury, among whom were seven persons who either
are or have been officials, or are decores, acquitted
her. She was driven away in a carriage, amid a
considerable riot, and it was supposed she had been
sent to Siberia, but she writes herself to state that
the attempt to arrest her was made, but that she is
in safe concealment. This affair has made a pro-
found sensation in St. Petersburg, and has, it is
reported, greatly alarmed the Emperor. The edu-
cated classes sympathize with the young lady, and
so wide-spread is the excitement that it is deemed
necessary to recall the Guard. General Trepoff has
been superseded, but in the interest of authority
made a Councillor of State.

The railroad bridge across the Tay, between Fife
and Dundee, in Scotland, which was begun in 1871
was opened on the 3Ist May. The river at that
point is nearly two miles wide, about 45 feet deep
and has a current of five knots an hour. The
bridge consists of 85 spans, varying from 67 to 245
feet in width, and has a height of 88 feet above
high water in the middle, sloping gently from that
point to either shore. It was built by a separate
company from that owning the Edinburgh, Perth
and Dundee Railway, which passes over it, and
cost about 350,000.

The Committee of Enquiry into Egyptian reve-
nues has issued a notice at Cairo, summoning all
creditors of the Government whose claims exceed
1,000 and who have obtained no judgment from
international tribunals, to present their claims with
vouchers, within one month if residents and within
two months it living abroad.


FAREWELL TO CANADA.
At the close of the dramatic performance at Rideau
Hall, Ontario on the 5th May,when a very pleasing en-
tertainment was repeated, the following epilogue said
to be from the pen of His Excellency, was recited by
Lady Dufferin :
Kind friends for such indeed you've proved to us--
Kinder than just, I fear-and is it thus
That we must quit you ? shall the curtain fall
O'er this bright pageant like a funeral pall,
And blot forever from your friendly sight
The well-known forms and faces that to-night
For the last time have plied their mimic arts
To tempt your laughter, and to touch your hearts-
Without one word of thanks to let you know
How irredeemable's the debt we owe
For that warm welcome, which year after year
Has waited on our poor attempts to cheer
With the gay humor of these trivial plays
Some few hours stolen from your busy days !
Despite ourselves, the grateful words will come,
For love could teach a language to the dumb.
'Tis just one lustre, since-a tyro band-
On paltry farce we tried our 'prentice hand,
Treading at first a less pretentious stage,,
E'en than the goatherds of the Thespian age;
Without a curtain ;-for each slip-a screen,
While bedroom candles light the meagre scene.
But soon, emboldened by our Public's smile,
Our Muse attempts a more ambitious style,'
The Dowager" parades her stately grace,
Our Wife" declares two husbands out of place,
To School" we send you, and-a sight too rare--
Show'you for once a really Happy Pair,"
Then-having warned your daughters not To. lend"
Their only Lover" to a lady friend,
We next the fatal Scrap of Paper" burn
And follow with One Hour," Jacques" in turn
Semiramis,"-a debutante's First Night,"
Winging at each essay a loftier flight,
Until at last a bumper house we drew
With the melodious "Mayor of St. Brieux '"
These our achievements-but we gladly own
The praise, if praise be due, is half your own.
'Twas your encouragement that nerved our wits,
Conjured hysterics, sulks, tears, fainting fits ;
You taught our Ingenues" those airs serene,
Those blushing Sirs to drop their bashful mien.
Wherefore commissioned am I come to-day
Our hearts and laurels at your feet to lay.
And yet my task is only half fulfilled- -
[To THE ACTORS.
Brothers and sisters of Thalia's guild,
Who've faced with me the critic's glittering eye
And dared the terrors of yon gallery,
Who've lightened all my labor with your love
And made each effort a new pleasure prove
If words could thank you for your generous aid
These lips should bankrupt be to see you paid ;
And oh! believe, as long as life endures,
The warm affections of my heart are yours.
[To AUDIENCE.
And now, one last Farewell-a few weeks more;
And we depart your loved Canadian shore,
Never again to hear your plaudits rise,
Nor watch the ready laughter in your eyes
Gleam out responsive to our author's wit,
However poorly we interpret it;
Nor see with artist pride your tears o'erflow
In homage to our simulated woe.
Yet scenes like these can never wholly fade
Into oblivion's melancholy shade;
And oft at home, when Christmas fire logs burn,
Our plausive thoughts instinctively will turn
To this fair city with her crown of towers,
And all the joys and friends that once were ours.
And oft shall yearning fancy fondly fill'
This hall with guests, and conjureup at will
Each dear familiarjface, each kindly word
Of praise that e'er our player souls hath stirred,
Till neathh the melting spell of memory
Our love flows back toward you like a seg ;
For know whatever way our fortunes turn-
Upon the altars of our hearts shall burn
Those votive fires no fuel need renew,
Our prayers for blessings on your land and you.


CRICKET.
"A" CoxPANY vs. "K" COMPANY 46th Regt.
This match was played at Prospect on Saturday
last and resulted in a victory for the former by 13
runs. It is but fair to state for the latter company
that although for some time fully equipped they
possessed no person that would come forward and
take their cause in hand and lead them in the field.
Paymaster Sergt. Hart having, however, recently
been posted to the Company from the Ghagans'
has taken the matter in hand, and having given his
men only a little practice, has, like a good warrior,
made his debut on this occasion by endeavouring to
break through the weakest point of his antagonists.
Annexed is the score :-

Difficulty is experienced in circulating the new
silver dollar in the United States. Of the 6 millions
coined only about 1 million are current.

Advices from Guyanila, Porto Rico, report the sugar
crop as turning out very favorably and that there is
now a plentiful supply,: The weather has been fai4:
and everything would seem ripe for a brisk business,
but at the same time freights are not plenty, and rates
are very low. At Cardenas, Cuba, there has been a
good deal of wet weather during the past season, and
so it is hoped that there will be dry weather till Au-
gust. If this should occur, it is thought the crop will
be up to that of last year, but not as good us those of
preceding seasons. Last season the crop fell off 25
per cent from the average, and while formerly it rose
to 1150,000 hogsheads, last season it could not have
reached 110,000.


IMPORTANT MEETING.
A meeting of the principal Shippers of Bermuda
Produce was held in this Town on Friday last at
5 p.m., to consider what steps shall be taken to
provide against fraudulent practices in the packing
of produce shipped from these Islands.
Present-Hon. S. S. Ingham, Chairman; Messrs.
T. F. J. Tucker, M.C.P., William Cox, Thomas N.
Dill, M.C.P., T. J. Wadson, M.C.P., Jas. A. Con-
yers, S. S. Ingham, Jr., J. Frederick Smith, W. E.
Talbot and several others. The Hon. S. S. Ingham
was requested to act as chairman.
After some discussion the following proposals
were assented to by the meeting, viz. :-
1.-That there shall be sworn Inspectors of Bermu-
da Produce, to be appointed by the Mayor of
the Town of Hamilton, and said Inspectors shall
have authority to examine and condemn as un-
marketable all produce offered for sale or ship-
ment which in their opinion is unfit for shipment,
whether as regards condition of packages or
their contents.
2.-That all goods so rejected by the Inspectors
shall remain in their charge at the risk and ex-
pense of the Owner thereof for a period not ex-
ceeding four days, and it shall be the duty of the
Inspector to hold the said goods until after the
departure of the Steamer or vessel for which they
were intended.
3.-That any person having produce so condemned
shall for the second offence forfeit the articles so
offered, and also be subject to a penalty of not
less than 10/ and not exceeding 40/, to be recov-
erable before any Justice of the Peace of these
Islands.
4-That the Inspectors duties shall extend over a
period from 1st March to 30th June in each year,
and he shall be at all times in attendance in the
Town of Hamilton between the hours of 6 a.m.
and 6 p.m. every day, Sundays excepted.
5.-The Inspectors salary shall be payable by the
Mayor and Corporation of the Town of Hamil-
ton, out of funds derived from Shed Tax.
It was suggested that these resolutions should
be handed to the Committee of the House of As-
sembly recently appointed to enquire into this
matter.
We are pleased to learn that the Committee has

LABOR RIOTS-THE QUEBEC STRIKERS IN
OPEN REVOLT.
QUEBEC, Canada, June 12.-The labor troubles,
which for the last few days have created intense ex-
citement in the city, culminated to-day in one of the
most unfortunate series of riots which have ever dis-
graced Quebec. For many days previously deeds of
violence, which have been regularly brought before
the notice of the authorities, have been committed by
rioters, without apparently receiving any notice or
attention from those who might reasonably have been
looked to to take action in the premises. Between
2,000 and 3,000 of the strikers assembled early to-day
at the Jaques Cartier Hall, where they were address-
ed by one of their number, who said that any caught
stealing would be immediately strung up. Their ob-
ject, he stated, was only to force all the men to strike
off work. This individual is said to be a French Com-
munist. At the conclusion of his remarks the strikers,
headed by the tricolor, proceeded to Mr. Peters,
Strotchs. Mr. Peters in the meantime made a de-
mand to the Mayor for protection. The whole of the
available men of the police force, under the command
of Capt. Heighan, were immediately despatched to the
scene, and the mounted force and two divisions of the
infantry of B battery, consisting of about one hundred
men, under the command of Colonel Strange, were
also, upon the application of the Mayor, sent to the
assistance of the police. The riot act not having been
read, the military were forced to retire under a heavy
shower of stones. The whole mob searched the St.
Louis Hotel for Cimon, the contractor, and failing to
find him went to Renand's flour store and rolled out
400 barrels of flour, and stopped teams on the street
to cart it home. The Mayor proceeded at the head of
troops to the spot where the rioters were assembled.
The troops tried to arrest the ringleaders, who plund-
ered the store, the mob attacked the troops, and the
Riot act being read, fire was opened, at first with
blank cartridges, which only infuriated the mob, some
ball was then used, and two of the strikers were seen
to fall, the man who carried the flag and a young
Frenchman lately from France named Edouard Beau-
done.
The rioters then began to scatter, and the cavalry
was employed in clearing the streets. The City and
Water Police will remain on duty to-night, and Bat-
tery B under orders in the citadel. The cavalry and
Eighth Battalion being on duty at Parliament House.
Large numbers of Householders have been sworn in as
special constables.
MONTREAL, June 12.-
Three regiments of the volunteers, viz :-First, or
Prince of Wales Rifles, under Major Bond, mus-


tering about eighteen officers and two hundred men.
Third, or Victoria Rifles, under Colonel Handyside,
20 officers and 250 men, and Fifth Royal Fusi-
leers, under Colonel Crawford,, 22 officers and 250
men, proceeded to Quebec this evening by special
train at ten o'clock. The whole, under command
of Colonel Fletcher, Deputy Adjutant General, ac-
companied by Colonel Bacon. Brigade Major Neen
only received notice calling them out about five
o'clock, and many went off at the last moment
without notice having reached them. An immense
crowd gathered at the railway depot to see them
off and the men were cheered most enthusiastically
as they marched down from the City Hall to the
depot. Outside of the desire to see our volunteers
distinguish themselves in preserving law and order
in the sister city, there is no general sympathy
or excitement among the people here on behalf
of the Quebec strikers. It is recognized here that
the leading feature in the riots has been the Com-
munistic element. The train is expected to reach
Quebec about two o'clock A. M.

Lord Beaconsfield's mission to Berlin will be the
most interesting event in the present century of Eng-
land's foreign politics. If he can satisfactorily settle
the Asian mystery" of the Eastern Question, a life
of many triumphs will be fitly crowned; and the wri-
ter of the Political Adventures of Lord Beaconsfield"
will have another chapter to write up.
The largest aggregate of Canadian cattle ever sent
from Montreal in one day for Britain was shipped on

The Secretary of the United States Treasury says
there can be nothing in the way of his having in the
Treasury next January the amount of coin for resu-
ming that he has calculated to have, namely, $205-
000,000. With this amount it is evident that he can,
without any difficulty, redeem his then outstanding
$287,000,000 in greenbacks. The Secretary does not
anticipate that he will be called upop to redeem more
than $202,000,000, but he is securing coin to meet
any emergency&
