. (No. 16.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon
orable the Legislative Council that instruction
have been received from the War Office by th(
military authorities here, to cause the Torped<
Company of the Royal Engineers now quartered
here, to commence its annual course of Torped
practice or experimental submarine mining, with
view to keeping up the efficiency of the Compan3
and ascertaining by trial the best mode of apply
ing this powerful means of defence to the protection
of the harbours of this Colony, and that in order tc
carry out these instructions with safety to those
making the experiments and with safety to the pub
lie, it is necessary that the military authorities
should have power to Buoy out and occupy exclu
sively for a time, and keep clear of intrusion b
steamers, or sailing ships, or boats, certain portion
of the waters adjoining the shores of these Island
so as to guard against all interruption while these
important experiments are being carried on.
TheGovernor has instructed the Attorney Gene
ral to introduce a Bill giving the necessary power
for carrying out the War Office instructions, an
trusts that the Legislature will cause this Bill t
become .Law with as little delay as possible, as th
season for Torpedo practice is passing away, and
is very desirable, therefore, that this year's practice
should be begun at once.
Mount Langton, llth July, 1878.
(No. 17.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to request the at-
tention of the Honorable the Legislative Council t
an item in vote 28 of the Estimates of Expendilur
for 1878-9 laid before the Honorable the Legisla
tive Council with the Governor's Message No. 7
this Session, providing the sum of 15 to cove
The travelling expenses of the Receiver General an
of the Assistant Receiver General when travellin
on public duty between Hamilton and St. George
The Governor finds that it has not hitherto bee
the practice here for the Executive Government t
direct quarterly or surprise or other surveys of th
Colonial Treasury Chest in the Receiver General
Office in Hamilton as surveys answering practical
the same purpose as Executive surveys have always
been and are still carried out by Committeeq of th
Honorable House of Aseembly.
But with respect to the branch Treasury Chest
St. Georges, the Governor has been informed th
Dp quarterly or periodical or surprise or other sur
vey of that Chest has ever been made by any Corn
mittee of the Legislature and that till the la
Receiver General, Mr. Fowler, made some survey
of hbat Chest by order of the Governor the CheE
had never been surveyed except on the occasion
a change of office. .
The late Receiver General made periodical vii
its to St. Georges by order of the late Governo
and sent in 'claims for his travelling expense


which were passed by the House of Assembly.
The Governor has considered it necessary tha
the Receiver General should continue to make these
periodical visits to St. George's for the purpose o
holding surveys of jhe Chest, and he trusts that th
Legislature will make provision for paying th
travelling expenses which must necessarily be dis
bursed by that Officer on these occasions in lik
manner as it authorised the payment of the travel
ling expenses of the late Receiver General on simi
lar occasions.
The Governor thinks that it would be more con
venient that the Legislature should place a small
suni at the disposal of the Executive Governmer
to meet these travelling claims as they arise rather
than that Public Officers should be compelled tc
lay out money and wait until the end of the yea
for its repayment. It does not necessarily follow
that the sum of 15 if voted should be spent.
,. All claims will necessarily be examined before
payment and those only which are legal and re-


gular and ut.',::~il ( e by proper vouchers will be
allowed.

The following Messages from His Excellency the
1 Governor:
(No. 19.)
r R. M. LAFFAN,
s Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to request the atten-
tion of the Honble. the House of Assembly to an
item of 3 7/0 set down in vote 14 of the Estimates
t of Expenditure for 1878-9, laid before the Honor-
able House of Assembly with the Governor's Mes-
e sage No. 9 of this Session providing for the carriage
t hire of the Colonial Secretary and of the Receiver
General as visitors to the Lunatic Asylum.
Of this sum 1 7/0 was expended last year by the
Colonial Secretary in carriage hire to enable him to
make official visits to the Lunatic Asylum for ,the
information of the Governor ; and by order of the
Governor and Council the Colonial Secretary sent
in a claim for payment as an annual contingent ac-
count. The amount however was disallowed.
e The Colonial Secretary had been appointed an
official visitor to the Lunatic Asylum in accordance
with the instructions conveyed in a Circular Des-
patch addressed to all Governors from the Secretary
of State for the Colonies-Earl Kimberley-dated
Downing Street, 13th December, 1872, of which the
- Governor encloses a copy for the information of the
Honorable House of Assembly.
It will be seen from that Circular Despatch that
e the Secretary of State had found by experience that
- the Governors of Colonies had too many political
and administrative duties of an engrossing nature
to attend to to admit of their frequently inspecting
the prisons, hospitals, Lunatic Asylum, and Leper
Asylums in their respective Governments, and that
notwithstanding there being generally a number of
unofficial visitors to such Institutions the Governor
s was still left frequently in ignorance of abuses
e which had been allowed to continue and of improve-
o ments which had been delayed much longer than
d the Secretary of State thought they would have
o been had the Governor been cognizant of the real
a state of things, and it will be seen that the Secre-
y tary of State was therefore of opinion that there
). should be official inspections from time to time by
n the Colonial Secretary or other principal officer of
o the Government and also occasional inspections by
te the Governor in person to enable him to ascertain
s the state of these Institutions in their more import-
bs ant particulars and to assure himself that the du-
e ties of all parties connected with them were effect-
y ively performed.
ns When the Colonial Secretary's claim for 1 7/0
[s was disallowed, the Acting Governor directed him
se to cease making official visits to the Asylum, and re-
ported the matter .to the Secretary of State who, in
- his Despatch No. 39 of 1877, dated Downing St.
- 18th of Sept., 1877, instructed the Governor of
d Bermuda again to present the claim of 1 7/0 to
o the Legislature. This was done in the Governor's
e Message No. 20 of last Session, expressing the
it Governor's confident belief that the Honorable
e House o! Assembly would consider that the neces-
sary travelling expenses of a Public Officer when
ordered by the Executive Government to perform a
necessary and proper duty, formed a legitimate
charge upon the reveriyes of this Colony, and that
the Honorable House of Assembly would find
means to meet this charge.
On its having been moved however in the Hon-
" orable House of Assembly, that the House should
o resolve itself into a committee of the whole to
e consider this Message, a Member raised a point of
- order namely-that the subject having been already
of considered in that Session could not be again con-
er sidered, and His Honor the Speaker having sus-
d tained the point of order raised, nothing more
ig could be done in the matter last.year.
s. The Governor now again presents this claim of
n 1 7/0 to the Honble. House of Assembly and
to trusts that as it will no longer be out of order to
e entertain it the Honble. House will once more
's consider the question and find means to meet the


ly charge.
ys The remainder of the 8 7/0 inserted in the Es-
he timates namely 2 is required to pay the travel-
ling expenses of the Colonial Secretary and Re-
at ceiver General as official visitors to the Lunatic
at Asylum up to the 30th June, 1879. The Gover-
r- nor feels no doubt that this sum as well as the
n- 1 7/0 expended last year will be readily voted by
te the Legislature.
ys It is always optional with private gentlemen to
st be visitors to Lunatic Asylums and other Public
SInstitutions or not, and the thanks of the com-
munity are due to those who voluntarily undertake
s" a troublesome duty : but in addition to such vol-
or untary assistance it is the opinion of the Secretary
s, of State that the Governor should be able to com-
mand the services of official visitors who would be
at bound to make regular and periodical reports to
se him, and when Public Officers are ordered to per-
be form these necessary duties it is but reasonable the
me moderate sums they find it necessary to incur for
Ie travelling expenses should be repaid.

The United States Ship Saratoga, Lieut.-Comman-
der R. D. Evans, anchored in Murray's Anchorage"
on Sunday evening last, out 12 days from Norfolk.
The S.'is employed by the U. S. Government as a
training ship for boys as seamen for the U. S. Navy
and her crew consists of 98 men and 120 boys. Shortly
after anchoring she fired a salute, which was returned
on the following morning from the Battery at Fort
Victoria. The ship will remain here until Saturday
and then proceed to Newport, Rhode Island.

The report of the highly important decision by
a Marine Court of New York, in the case of the
Italian Barque Veronica Madre, Captain Muratoria,
will be found on the last page of this issue.
An action will now, we understand, be brought
by the owners of the Veronica Madre against the
parties who chartered the Barque, as it has been
most satisfactory proved that the corn with which
she was laden was not ripe or in a fit state for
shipment when put on board and mainly brought
about the loss and expenses to which the vessel
was subjected to in these Islands. Another cargo
of corn which arrived here at same time and which
was really more extensively damaged by sea-water
than was that of the Veronica Madre and which was
stored in the same warehouse and underwent similar
manipulation was reshipperd 2nd conveyed without
any further trouble to its original port of desti-
nation.

THE EXTRADITION QUESTION between Great Brit-
ain and the United States is said to have been set-
tled by a legal commission in England, to the effect
that the American contention was right, and that a
criminal extradited for one crime may still be tried
for another.

THE GOVERNOR GENERAL.--Lord Dufferin, hav-
ing been interviewed by a Boston reporter, author-
ised a contradiction of the report that he is to remain
in Canada.

PROSPECT GARRISON CROQUET CLUB.

Private Richardson, 1-19th Regiment, while a
prisoner for being drunk on the Naval Hospital
Guard on Thursday last, made his escape and
was found drowned in the sea below Boaz Island
the next morning. Hearing his cries in the water
two men of the guard went in to try and rescue
him but failed, and had it not been for the timely
arrival of the Officer going his rounds, who imme-
diately sent the Garrison Gig to their rescue, they
too would have met a similar fate.

BARBADOS.-We are indebted to the kindness of
John Harnett, Esqr., M.C.P., for a file of Barbados
papers of the 1st instant, received by the Schr. An-
nie Florence, on Sunday last.
SThe weather in Barbados was most favorable for
the growing crops'and every thing was looking green
and blooming. The West Indian of the 28th remarks
"there are some welcome supplies of potatoes and
onions from Bermuda and Cape de Verds." Still
only $1'20 cents per box could be obtained for
onions.and $4 for potatoes.
] The Revenue of the Island for the Quarter ending


March 31st shows an increase of 4574 over that of
the corresponding period in 1877.
The Mail Steamer Tasmania, which we reported
some two or three weeks since as being on shore on
the reefs at Ponce, Porto Rico, has, after a fruitless
attempt of H.M.S. Tourmaline to get her off, been
abandoned.
The interruption of the cable between Havana
and Key West, has cut off communication between
New York snd the West Indies.
The Honorable C. "A. Berkeley, Treasurer of
Tobago, died on 15th June.

The want of a Licensed Boarding-House for Sea-
men in Bridgetown has been says the Barbados West
Indian of the 28th June brought to the notice
of the Governor by Mr. Kirkham, late Acting Har-
bour Master, for the benefit of discharged seamen,
where during their stay in this Island, they might
"obtain suitable accommodation at a reasonable
cost, without being exposed to the frauds which it is
notorious, are now practised upon them." His Ex-
cellency in referring the matter to the Assembly,
observes, the want of such an institution was pointed
out by one of his predecessors in 1874-5, as be-
coming more and more pressing in consequence of
the increasing transit trade of the island."
Another move in the same direction has been taken
by the Rev. P. L. Phillips, Curate of St. Michael's
Cathedral, who has procured the hull of a vessel
condemned as unseaworthy, which he proposes to fit
up and moor in the upper part ofj Carlisle Bay, to
hold services in on Sundays. for the benefit of the
sailors on board ships lying at anchor in the Bay, of
whom, during the first six months of the year, there
is always a considerable number.

A man has been arrested at Wilhelmshaven,
Germany, on the curious charge of having predict-
ed, a day before the event, the sinking of the
"Grosser Kurfurst" by the "Konig Wilhelm."

honor in his own country.


The English l'ail of 25th June.
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw, i
one of her usual very short passages, arrived o
Thursday last from Halifax, bringing the English
Mail of the 25th June.
We are indebted to Captain Shaw and other
friends, for files of Halifax papers of the 8th inst.
The business of the Congress assembled at Ber-
lin would, it is thought, be brought to a close on
Tuesday last. What has been really accomplished
will not be made officially known until some days
after that date. Between the dates of our former
advices, and that of the 6th instant, it is said to
have been determined that
The Danube be thrown open to the commerce of
all nations.
Austria to receive the Port of Spezzia,
Austria to occupy Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Austria and Turkey to negotiate details.
The Porte is invited to come to terms with
Greece, it being the opinion of the Conference that
the line of her frontier should be from the valley of
Salambria on the 2Egian Sea across to the mouth
of the Kalamos River opposite Corfu.

THE CONGRESS AT BERLIN.
BERLIN, July 5.-Congress discussed the Danube
and Indemnity questions yesterday. The chief
points in regard to the former were arranged by
1 rising for the free navigation, instead of neu-
trality, of the Danube, and that it shall be thrown
open to the commerce of all nations. Neither the
B tourn nor the Greek question was touched.
Fears are expressed that the difficulties concern-
inrg the former may cause the prolongation of
Congress.
The settlement of the Montenegrin question in
a cordance with the Austrian programme, as has
beon previously announced, was confirmed.
Austria receives the Port of Spizza.
The Turkish plenipotentiaries announced that
ti. y had instructions authorizing them to accept in
pi inciple the Austrian occupation of .Bosnia and
Scrzegovina with the reservation that Austria and
Turkey shall negotiate the details of the occupation
direct. Andrassy raised no objection to this.
Congress has decided to elect a Prince for Bul-
garia itself, and steps will be taken to obtain direct
frr m Constantinople guarantees that the Porte, wi'-
not repudiate the action of its plenipotentiaries.
LONDON, July 5.-Russian papers comment an-
grily on the reports that England intends to oppose
the cession of Batoum and contend that in the
event of such a course Russia ought to retire from
Congress.
ATHENS, July 5.-The Mohammedans in Corea
and Kethyma continue in a threatening attitude
towards the Governor. French, British and Turkish
men-of-war have gone thither.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 5.-The sale of the Russian
World newspaper in the streets ha3 been prohibited
in consequence of an unusually strong article
against England on the Batoum question.
CONSTANTINOPLE, July 5.-The inhabitants of Ba-
toum have again telegraphed Minister Layard,
asking the protection of England and declaring
they have resolved to hoist the British flag and
open fire on the Russians July 12.
VIENNA, July 5.-A despatch to the Political
Correspondence" from Bucharest states that the
Roumanian Chambers, in a secret sitting on Mon-
day, resolved to revoke the commission of M. Cogol-
niceano as plenipotentiary to Berlin, and he, con-
sequently, has been recalled.
BERLIN, July 5.-Tke Greek question was settled
in Congress to-day. A resolution was passes"
Congress invites the Porte to come to an under-
standing with Greece for the rectification of her
frontier, and is of opinion that the line should .:
from the valley of Salambrin on the JEgean rS to
the mouth of the' Kalamos River, opposite Corfv
In the event of difficulties arising in the negotia-
tions, the powers are ready to render their good
offices as mediators.
Accounts differ somewhat as to the extent of
the rectification of the Greek frontier suggest"
ed, by Congress. It is understood that the line
includes Lerissa. It is stated that certain of the
powers, by offering mediation, mean that the invi-
tation shall not remain a dead letter. Italy and
France warmly supported the Greek claims.
Beaconsfield admitted he had with difficulty been
induced to accept even that moderate proposal as a
prize. The boundary indicated therein seemed to
indicate the sovereign will of the Porte. He was
unable to accede to any demands amounting to a
division of Turkey, Epirus and Thessaly not being
in a chronic state of anarchy like Bulgaria. The
Greeks are profoundly disappointed at the deci-
sion of Congress. Turkey had privately declared
that she would go to war with Greece rather than
cede two Provinces.
Saturday's sitting, in which the questions of Ba-
toum and Armenia are to be discussed, will virtu-
ally end Congress, the remaining proceedings being
principally formal, and will probably last till
Thursday. The financial question and that of the
government of Western Roumelia will be submitted
to a commission of ambassadors resident in Berlin,
which meets after the dissolution of Congress,
The disposition of the sanjak of Sofia is settled,
that district is to be divided equally between Rou-
mania and Bulgaria.
Bismark informed a correspondent that he thinks
the Czar will consent to destroy the fortifications
of Batoum.
The Austrian Government yesterday received the
remaining 7,000,000 florins from the bankers
who undertook to raise 30,000,000 for mob-


ilization. Mobilization of the additional troops
was decreed yesterday to begin to-day.
Adakaleh has been definitely ceded to Austria.
LONDON, July 7.-A Vienna despatch says, re-
garding Turkey's reservation in accepting in prin-
ciple the Austrian occupation of Bosnia and Her-
zegovina, that Austria and Turkey shall directly
negotiate the details. While the Turkish claims
were previously expressed in a sort of detailed
manner, they appear in the declaration of Caratheo-
dori, the Turkish plenipotentiary, under veil of
Turkish diplomacy. One has reason to believe
that the Porte has recourse, to this mancevre to
deny the statement of Russia that it has opposed
the annexation of Crete to Greece. Congress pro-
tocols will indicate the Power that has opposed
Hellenic nationality.
Advices from Rome state that Italian public opi-
nion disapproves of the occupation of Bosnia and
Herzegovina by Austria.

NEW YORK, July 7. A "Herald" cable des-
patch says the Turks as a compensation for the loss
of Batoum are desirous of Bayazid. The Russians
valiantly defended the objects of the war before
Congress, and insisted upon a just recognition of
their rights as conquerors to compensation in money,
territory or commercial concessions. Oorlschakoffs
speech was supplemented by a few remarks in Eng-
lish by Schouvaloff addressed to the British Pre.
mier. The effort of the Russian Chancellor is re-
ported to have been the most masterly made since
the statement of England's position by Beacons-
field in the first days of the session.
The Greek delegates are furious over the decision
of Congress leaving the proposed rectification of
Greek frontier lines to the Turks. They do not be-
lieve in Turkish generosity.
During the discussion of the Greek export ar-
rangement Lord Beaconsfield opposed the Hellenic
claims and declared again that the Congress had
assembled for the purpose of consolidating and
strengthening the Ottoman empire, and not of fur-
ther dismembering it.

THE HENLEY REGATTA.
LONDON, July 5.-Henley never saw a lovelier
day than yesterday for a regatta. The meadows on
both sides of the Thames were lined with people.
The bridge was blocked with drags and carriages,
while the river swarmed with craft of every des-
cription.
T'e race for the diamond sculls between Geocie
W. Lee, of the Triton Club of Newark, New Jer-
sey, and Edwards Moss, the present holder of the
prize, was the first in which Americans were inter-
ested. It was an exciting race, and Lee had the
best of it, when suddenly within twenty feet from
the finish, he slopped-still half a length ahead-
nd at the same time bis right oar struck the shore.
thought he had passed the winning post. Two
more strokes would have landed him safely a win-
Sner, but Moss continuing his course won by less
Than ~a quarter of a length. Both men were in
great distress. Lee was ill htfore and after the
Race. Time, 9 mi. 8s.
The nex was the fi' in h;al heat for the Stenivai s
Challenge Cup between the Columbia, Dublin, Uni-
versity, and Shoe-w"?.ecae-mettes, the latter win-
.ing in Sm. 21s. The Dublin crew fouled the Col-
umbias, and, although the latter were not to blame,
the referee rule.1 them out of the final heat to-day,
causing somehbaid fcEling on the part of the Colum-
Jbias and their friends.

lege crew not rowing.
The London pair was scratched from the race for

lon to-morrow and after a few days will separate.
A dinner will be given them in London on Sunday
evening by graduates and students of Columbia

LONDON, July 5.-A Berlin special says it appears
that Pope Leo, after first making friendly overtures
to the Emperor William, has, by the advice of the
ecclesiastics surrounding him, determined to ad-
here to the policy inaugurated by the late Pope.
The Cologne Gazette takes the opposite view and
quotes from the Correspondenz (semi-official) that
the Papal Nuncio to the Court of Bavaria has been
instructed to open negotiations with the Berlin
Government.
LONDON, July 5.-A paper is posted in all the
cotton mills of the Stockport district, giving a fort-
night's notice of five per cent. reduction in wages.
The operatives at present seem to favor resistance.
A strike there would affect 2,000 persons.
The Times regards (the statement of Sir Stafford
Norshcote, in the House of Commons last night,
that he was led to hope that in ten days or a fort-
night the negotiations at Berlin would be far enough
advanced to submit the supplementary estimates,
and shortly afterwards makes a statement to the
House, as a clear announcement of his belief that
the Government is confident of the attainmeat of a
pacific settlement at Pcrlin within the next few
flays.
DOMINION OF CANADA.
OTTAwA, July 6.-Early yesterday morning about
460 Mennonites passed through here on the Great
Western Railway for Manitoba and the North
West. They are evidently pretty well off, as they
all had a good deal of baggage, and not a few of
them had large sums of money. They say that an
immense number of their race may be expected to
land in this country during the next three years.


The Russell Reform Convention is going on to-
day. The attendance is very large and enthusias-
tic. The Conservatives of, the county and city,
with Johti O'Connor, appeared at the meeting un-

MONTREAL, July 5.-Nearly one hundred magis-
trates met to-day to confer on the peace of the city.
A stormy and disgraceful meeting it was. Nothing
practical was done. There will now be a requisili'.u
to the military authorities, and it is freely stated that
the 97th will be ordered from Halifax. That regi-
ment alone would ensure peace on the 12th,
UNITED STATES:
NEw YORK, July 5.-During a tornado and
thunder storms, eighteen miles above Pittsburg,
Pa., yesterday afternoon, the lightning caused the
igniting of the Vesta oil works, destroying 80,000
barrels of oil and causing a loss of $100,000. On
the opposite side of the Alleghany river the tornado
struck a grove where the Lutheran Sabbath School
members of Sharpsburg were pick-nicking, break-
ing.down great trees, killing seven and injuring
eleven persons.
The Socialist parade -here yesterday was insig-
nificant in point of numbers. -
NEW YoRK, July 6.-There were 7 cases of sun
stroke here on the 4th, and 15 on the 5th.
H. G. Meeker of New York, on Courtney'sbe-
half, has offered to deposit $500 to secure a match
fo $,,000 between Hanlan and Courtney, Meeker to
name the time and place. The Hanlan club is
-williig to make a match for that or a larger
amount and to allow Meeker to name the place,
but they object to his naming the time.
WASHINOTON, July 7.-The Secretary of State,


in compliance with the request made by the Pre-
sident and Vice President of the Board of Dele-
gates of American Israelites, has instructed our
Consul at Tangiers, Morocco, to co-operate with
the representatives of other Governments in using
his good offices in behalf of the oppressed Isra-
elites in Morocco.
NEW YOEK, July 3.-A Western despatch says
that on scores of reaping machines, notices have been
posted threatening destruction if the owners do not
lay them aside and employ men to cut grain.
Many farmers are yielding and discharging
machines. Those who have travelled in sev-
eral districts of Indiana during the past week
say that there is a very large proportion of the fields
of wheat being cut by hand. Farmers have posted
notices of warning on their lands and are taking
means for protection of property at night. If des-
truction of machines goes on heroic measures will
be adopted-soon in many localities. The supply of
labor is not equal to the demand.
NEWFOUNDLAND.
A French Outrage.
The St. John's Chronicle of the 18th June gives
the following account of a French outrage:
"We have the particulars of a raid recently made
upon the property of a British settler at La Scie by
the commander of a French man-of-war on that
shore. It appears that a respectable inhabitant of
Shoe Cove, Notre Dame Bay, named John Clance,
moved with his family not long since to La Scie,
and there erected dwelling-house, stages, flakes,
&c., his principal object being the cultivation of the
ground, supplementing his earnings in that direction
by such success as he could command by occasional
fishing. When the man-of-war arrived, about June
1st, a boat's crew pulled to the shore and ordered
Clance to take down the erections he had put up.
Clance refused to' do this unless required by some
competent British authority. Notice was then given
him that unless his property was removed within
eight days, it would be taken down for him. Ac-
cordingly, between three and four a.m. of Sunday,
9th June, some forty or fifty Frenchmen landed
armed with axes, and demolished his stages and
flakes, only sparing his house because his family
needed it for shelter. Clance then left La Scie and
returned to his old home."
The Chronicle wants to know how much longer
this illegal interference of the French is to be per-
mitted on Newfoundland territory, and adds :-
Our people cannot be expected tamely to sub-
mit to such treatment, and we shall be mistaken if
these interference on the part of the French be not
followed during the fall and winter season by the
uprooting and entire destruction of all French
erections on the shore. It is true that lawlessness on
one side does not warrant similar proceedings on the
other, but this ruthless conduct of the French
cruisers in destroying the property of our people
and warning them off the fishing grounds is becoming
monotonous, and this monotony will, we expect, be
relieved by the people themselves.
REWARD TO A NOVA SCOTIA CAPTAIN.-The Gov-
ernment of the United States has presented a mag-
nificent gold watch and chain to Captain R. P.
Trefry, of Bridgewater, N.S., master of Bark Tem-
plar, who, while on a voyage from Great Britain to
Delaware on February 21st, rescued the officers and
crew of the ship Celestial Empire, of and for New
York from Bremen, which was abandoned in a
sinking condition Feb. 22nd and, it is supposed,
sunk shortly afterward.
[l3 persons, a portion of the crew of the Celestial
Empire, were landed in Devonshire Bay, on the 8th
March, from the Barque Templar, Captain Trefry,
,he not having a suffciency of provisions for the ad-
ditional crew.]-Ed. B. R. G.

Proceedings of the Honorable Leg-
islative Council.
Tuesday, 9th July, 1878.-Pursuant to adjourn-
ment the House met.
Present-His Honor Josiah Rees, Chief Justice,
President,
The Honorable Augustus J. Musson,
William H. Gosling,
Eugenius Harvey,
Joseph H. Harvey,
James Tucker, Recr. Genl.,
Randal E. Webster, Colonial
Secretary.
The following Message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by His Excellency's Pri-
vate Secretary:-
(No. 15.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable the Legislative Council that be has received a
Despatch from the Secretary of State for the Colo-
nies dated 7th March, 1878, enclosing a letter ad-
dressed to the Secretary of State on the 5th March,
1878, by the Marine Department of the Board of
Trade, calling his attention to a peculiarity in the
form of Ships Articles in use in Bermuda, which is
stated to cause disputes between seamen and mas-
ters when Bermudian vessels are staying in foreign
ports.
The Acting Shipping Master at Barbados repre-
sents to the Marine Department of the Board of
Trade that seamen are shipped in Bermudian ves-
sels in their own ports in a somewhat informal
manner, being shipped in private stores or offices or
on board ships as opportunity may occur, without
any official endorsement of the articles, or stamp of
office, or other means of authenticating them, and
that in consequence of this want of formality or
Official recognition disputes frequently arise when
seamen are paid off in hospital or from other causes
at Barbados-the seamen questioning the accuracy
and authenticity of the articles and disputing the
amounts set against their names as monthly wages,
and the Acting Shipping Master suggests that these
difficulties might be obviated if all seamen shipped
by Bermudian vessels in their own ports, were ship-
ped before a Shipping Master whose signature would
authenticate the documents.
The Governor desires to call the attention of the
Legislature to this matter and trusts that means
may be found to remedy the evil complained of.
As a means of attaining that end the Attorney
General has been requested to introduce a Bill pro-
viding that the agreement contemplated by Section
1 of Act 22 of 1848 should always be signed by the
Master and by the seamen of Bermudian vessels be-
fore a Shipping Master.

A TRAIN THIRTY FEET LONG
The correspondent of a London newspaper, de-
scribing the Easter procession of the court at
Vienna, says: "The Emperor followed, in great
anxiety, as it seemed, lest his flambeau should go
out, and after him acanopy of gold cloth. Beneath
it walked backward four acolytes, also in cloth
of gold, who swung their censers with energy, to
fumigate the Bishop, who read from a glittering
book as he proceeded. At intervals along the
march trumpeters walked, sounding vigorously on
silver instruments. Then came the Empress-the
cynosure of all eyes. She wanted no Viennese
enthusiasm to appreciate her Majesty. There is
not, perhaps, another women in Europe who could
take part in such a show, with such a dress, and be
not a whit ridiculous. The train was full 80 feet
long, upborne by two pretty pages, in red doublet
and hose. The court threw off its mourning for
this occasion, and her Majesty wore a robe of palest
lavender silk, trimmed with tufts of floss silk, as
they seemed to us above, of a darker shade. Her
head-dress was a cap of the same stuff, encircled by
a light coronet, beneath which fell the superb
tresses famed throughout Europe. Though looped
back to the head, they hung in massy plaits to
the waist. The dress and' train were covered in
lace of the rarest and oldest manufacture. It
would be easy to make a laugh out of this medieval
grandeur; to tell how the little pages struggled
with the volume of silk and clouds of lace which
fluttered in their eyes. But no one smiled who
saw the Empress so attired. In riding-habit and
quiet country dress she has won English admiration,
but her natural costume, so to speak, is the gala
robe of this court, more magnificent than any left
in Europe. Behind her Majesty, one by one,
marched 15 Archduchesses and great ladies, dressed
in every brilliant color of silk or velvet. They had
trains, but a little shorter, borne by two footmen.
More guards followed, and the Magyar gentlemen-
at-arms in a glittering phalanx. So, very slowly,
the procession vanished through an antique door
amid the clangor of silver trumpets, the roll of
drums, and the shouts of the people."

It has now been fully ascertained that both the
flavour and quality of the flesh of fish is improved
and preserved by killing the fish at once instead of
permitting them to linger. Tap the fish on the
head with a stick or insert the blade of a knife to
the cervical column back of the head, are among
the best ways of killing fish.
