DEAR MR. LEE,-The Examination of the pupils of
the Orange Grove School," Smith's Parish, was held
on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of last welk and
as the result was very creditable to both teacher and pu
pils, and highly satisfactory to all those interested in
the School, you will, I trust, kindly allow me room for
this brief notice of it in your valuable columns.
i The School, which is under the charge of Miss E.
Williams, has been in existence one year, and I was
agreeably surprised to see how much the pupils had
succeeded in acquiring in that shert time. They had
all made very fair progress in the various branches
taught, and exhibited an acquaintance with the sub-
jects that proved that their teacher had made it her
aim that they should understand and retain all that
they learnt. Miss Williams, who was trained at the
well known school St. Agnes Hall," Albany, New
York, seems to possess the rare gift of imparting
knowledge and maintaining firm discipline, while 4t
the same time keeping on easy and affectionate rela-
tions with her pupils.
On Thursday evening the closing exercises of the
School ended with music, recitations, and the reading
of essays before a large audience of the parishioners
and others. The essays were, as a general thing, very
good. The prize was awarded to one on the "Capa-
bilities of Woman." Another on Industry is never
unfruitful" was read by the young lady who had gained
the highest marks for the year. I was myself much
pleased with a clever and graceful one on What the
Cricket on the Hearth told me." One on "Teaching"
was clearly and neatly expressed.
I earnestly hope that the school, which is not large,,
will soon be able to occupy the spacious and handsome
hall which the parishioners contemplate building. A
conveniently situated piece of ground for a site has
been presented to the Parish and vigorous efforts are
being made to commence and finish the work. May
QOD speed it!
Let me conclude with mentioning a fact which is
very gratifying to the parishioners of Smith's, that the
debt of about 50, which remained after the completion
of the beautiful steeple of their church, has been en-
tirely paid, and that, too, by collections in the church.
A small but suitable chancel will soon, I hope, put the
finishing touches to that very pretty church.


Yours very truly,


T -


It is reported that the Russians are discontinuing
their armaments in Turkistan.


We would like to remind the Members of
the Church of England in Bermuda of the impor-
tant Public Meeting which has been called for
Thursday next, 8th August, at one o'clock, in the
Court House,' Hamilton; for the purposes of con-
sulting upon a proposed Constitution for a Synod of
the Church, and of signing a Petition to the three
Branches of the Legislature for power to form
such a representative Body. We wish the good
cause every success.

THi DOCK BERMUTDA."-It is really worth a
trip to the Royal Naval Yard, Ireland Island, at
thekpresent time, to witness the progress of the slight
repairs which are being made and the extensive
painting which the magnificent Floating Dock is
undergoing. One side of this structure has been
completed some days, and the other side is now in a
state of forwardness. We are told that there are
over one hundred hands, mechanics and labourers,
at work on the "Bermuda." It is supposed that
more than a fortnight will elapse before she will
have passed through the hands of the persons at
present employed on her.

Tus DUKE OF EDINBURGH's CHALLENGE CUP.-
The names of the Yachts of the Royal Bermuda
Yacht Club which are to compete for this Cup, to-
day, in the Great Sound, will be found on our 3rd
page.

As our Almanack says, there will be a partial Eclipse
of the Moon on Monday next, 12th inst. It rises
eclipsed, reaches its greatest obscuration (6 digits) at
7j and ends with shadow and penumbia respectively,
about 9 and 10 p.m. This is the last phenomenon of
this kind visible here for an unusually long period, our
Antipodes being the favoured ones for those occurring
in all the next year.

THE FIRST OF AUGUST, the Anniversary of Eman-
cipation from Slavery in Bermuda, was celebrated by the
members of the British Methodist Episcopal Church by
a picnic at Ingraham's Grove, Spanish Point, on
Thursday last. We have received no particulars, but

greatest obstacles to an object in which the Congress
was unanimous, namely, the reestablishment of the
Sultan as a real, independent authority, was the
anarchical condition of Bosnia and the neighboring
countries."'
His Lordship continuing, said: "Most competent
authorities had convinced him that it would have
taken 50,000 of Turkey's best troops to secure any
approach to order in Bosnia. Even then the attempt
would perhaps have been unsuccessful, and such an
effort must have secured Turkey's absolute ruin.
He disclaimed any desire to attribAte Austrian occu-
pation to the necessity of submitting to the wishes
of the majority of the Congress. Austria undertook
the occupation at the suggestion of Lord Salisbury,
earnestly supported by himself (Lord Beaconsfield.)
The object in recommending the occupation was to
protect Turkey. The Government had consistently
resisted the principle of partition of Turkey, because,
exclusive of the consideration of morality, it believed
that an attempt at partition would inevitably lead
to a long and sanguinary war. The advocates of par-
tition had spoken out. The Government had been
taken up into a mountain and shown all the kingdoms
of the earth and told, all these shall be yours if you
will only worship partition.
This remark of the Premier seems to be an illu-
sion to a proposal which Prince Bismarck is gener-
ally understood to have made that England should
occupy Egypt.
Continuing, he said: It was remarkable that after
a great war and the prolonged negotiations all the
Powers, Russia as strictly and completely as the
others, come to the unanimous conclusion that the best
chance for the tranquility of the world was to retain the
Sultan as a part of the European system. He pointed
out that every great war was followed by a redistri-
bution of territory, but that that was not partition.
Austria had perhaps lost more provinces than even
Turkey. France lost provinces, 'but she was still a
great power, with a commanding future. England
lost some of her most precious possessions through
bad government, a loss which every Englishmau

THE NEW GOVERNOR GENERAL OF CANADA.-The

the Crown, singled out for so great a distinction.

royal mother would be as fully represented as by a

EARL OF BEACONSFIELD'S EXPLANATION
IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS.
LONDON, July 18.-The public interest in the
promised statement by the Earl of Beaconsfield at-
tracted a large and distinguished assembly in the
House of Lords. including the Princess of Wales
and other members of the royal family. When
Lord Beaconsfield entered there was considerable
cheering. He looked well and betrayed no especial
feeling at this brilliant reception. About five min-
utes later Lord Salisbury entered, and then Lord
Beaconsfield rose amid loud cheering. He said that
in laying upon the table the protocols of the Treaty
of Berlin, he should be only doing his duty to the
House, to Parliament and the country by making
some remarks upon the policy supported by the
British representatives in the Congress. He could
show that in the changes which were made in the
treaty of San Stefano by the Treaty of Berlin,
that a menace to the independence of Europe had
been removed, and threatened injury to the British
Empire terminated. The Congress had restored to
the Sultan two-thirds of his possessions, the popula-
tion being among the most wealthy audintelligent of his
subjects. It was said that when the Congress talked
of establishing the Balkan frontiers of what may be
called New Turkey they were establishing an inde-
fensible frontier, but it was upon courage and intre-
pidity that impregnability depended, and it would
be found that if left to those who defended Plevna
that frontier could not be indefensible. It was said
that the position of Sofia was yielded to the imperious
demands of one of the powers. He could assure
their Lordships there was not a shadow of truth in
this statement. Moreover, a personage, high in au-
thority had stated that it was quite erroneous to
suppose that Sofia was a strong strategic position.
It had also been said that the Congress made a great
mistake in not securing Varna for Turkey, but those
who blame the Congress for committing an error in
this respect quite forgot that they have allotted to
Turkey the harbor of Galatz, by far the most impor-
tant in the Black Sea. With regard to Eastern
Roumelia, it was at one time suggested to call it
South Bulgaria, but it was feared that there might
be some intriguing parties who would endeavour to
bring about a union between the two States, so pos-
sibly, creating fresh complications.
Lord Beaconsfield further stated that the opinion
above mentioned that Sofia was not a strong strat-
egical position was that of Mehemet Ali Pasha, who,
however, considered the pass of Ichtiman, whiqh the
Congress secured to the Sultan, as vitally impor-
tant, .
Lord Beaconsfield's statement showed throughout
a strong bias in favor of the Turks. Thus he almost
apologized for the limitation of the Sultan's authority
in Eastern Roumelia, saying: "As a general rule it
was, thought unwise to interfere with a military
power which you acknowledge; yet, in consideration
of the many awful events of which Eastern Roumelia
has been the scene, it had been thought advisable, in
order ?to prevent their recurrence, to establish a
government somewhat different from that of the
Turkish provinces, where the Sultan's authority
might be called unlimited. No limit, however, had
been placed on the force the Sultan might introduce
for the defense of Eastern Roumelia. One of the


memory was bad.
LONDON, July 19.-The Marquis of Salisbury de-
clared in the House of Lords last night that he had
to state on behalf of his colleagues, Lords Beacons-
field, Cairns and Cranbrook, Sir Stafford Northoote,
the Right Hon. Mr. Smith, the Duke of Richmond,
and the Right Hon. Mr. Cross, that Lord Derby's
statement relative to the secret expedition for seiz-
ing Cyprus was not correct. There was quite a
scene of excitement, during which Lord Salisbury
was called to order for saying that the statement
was not true.

HOUSE OF COMMONS .
LONDON, July 30.-The debate in the House of
Commons last night is described on all sides as
dull spiritless. It was adjourned at an early hour.
The debate was resumed to-day by Lord Sandon
(Conservative) who defended the policy of the
Government.
Viscount Sandon said where the Government
had acted without the concert of the other powers,
none of them had taken any offence, but, on the
contrary, the English policy had been cordially re-
ceived. He did not believe thelpeople or the Li-
beral party would sanction Mr. Forster's sugges-
tion, that the Liberals, when in office, should imme-
diately reverse the Government's policy. Such a
"course could only mean that Russia be left to do
what she liked. He challenged the opposition to
State what policy it wished to have adopted.
Mr. Gladstone rose and began by reading a let-
ter which he had addressed to' Lord Beaconsfield,
asking him to cite instances (in support of the ac-
cusation of unjustifiable and reckless attacks. He
declared that he- never attacked the Government
.without a deep sense of responsibility. He had
never assigned any di.lhnI.uorable motives to the
Premier, his attacks upou wlih:se policy were based
upon irreconcilable and fundamental d if.remi.e of
opinion and feeling. He made a long rbiiew of the
results of the Congress. He regretted the selfish


0 mapp


have occurred if the principle which now governs
her relations with the colonies had been then obser-
ved. He defended the limit not being fixed to
Austrian occupation, as that would only have held
out hope to agitators. "His Lordship pointed out
that England had, according to promise, obtained a
hearing for Greece, and had made, prior to the Con-
gress, overtures to the Porte, which were received
in almore than encouraging spirit, for such ratifica-
tion of the frontier as will give Greece a considerable
increase of strength and resources, and prevent
irigandage and the continued dissensions which are
fostered by the present configuration of the frontier.
But the Greeks had evidently quite misappprehended
the objects of the Congress. They were coveting
Contantinople and talking of accepting large provin-
ces and powerful islands as an instalment of their
full claim.
Earl Beaconsfield, in summoning up the general
results of the treaty as regards European Turkey,
pointed out that exclusive of Bosnia and Bulgaria it
still contained 60,000 square miles and a population
of 6,000,000. When the line of the Balkans was fix-
ed Prince Bismarck had said: Turkey in Europe
once more exists." He (Lord Beaconsfield) did not
think such results unsatisfactory or inadequate, even
if obtained after a struggle like that of the Crimea.
Russia only havingobtainedBessarabia in Europe na-
lurally looked for reward to her conquests inArmenia.
Itwas unfair to argue as though the negotiations relat-
ive to Armenia had been for the conclusion of peace
1betwen England and Russia. Turkey had by the
Treaty of San Stefano, already given up Kars, Ba-
toum, &c. If England had gone to war to recover
them the war would have been long and expensive
and "probably, like most wars, would have ended in a
compromise. Kars had been already three times taken
by the Russians. Would Parliament have saction-
ed war in order to restore it to Turkey that Russia
might take it again when the next misunderstanding
arose, or to prevent the cession of Batoum harliSr,
vhich is barely capable of holding six ships ? The
Government thought it advisable not to begrudge
these conquests to Russia, especially after obtaining
the restoration of Bayazid and the district. Bnt
it seemed at the same time necessary to consider
whether some effort was not possible to improve the
general condition of Asiatic Turkey and prevent the
perpetually recurring wars, always terminating in
shaking the authority of the Porte and diminishing
the means of profitably and advaiiarqeously governing
the country. He pointed out that other European
powers were naturally not so interested as England
in affairs connected with our Oriental Empire.
Therefore, anything to effectually guard our inter-
ests in that quarter must be framed by ourselves,
though the object of the Anglo-Turkish Convention
was certainly to place England in a position in which
she might be connected with the force necessary
when any great transactions were contemplated
even though you may not feel it necessary to
have recourse to force. But the object of the con-
vention was not merely or chiefly military, but to
produce peace and tranquility, so as to open up to
the wealth and enterprise of Europe what is really
another continent. He was surprised to hear it re-
ported, though he had not heard it from any author-
ity, that the Government's course caused any suspi-
cion or enmity. He had particularly considered the
susceptibilities of France, to whom England is bound
by daily increasing friendship and lhad avoided Syria
and Egypt because of the sentimental traditionary
interests of France. But we must remember that
England had enormous and substantial interests in
the East, and that if she did not interfere in vindi-
cation of those interests Asia Minor must become a
victim to anarchy and ultimately pass to Russia,
who would not be blameable in profiting from such
a state of affairs. The Government did not want to
enter upon any unnecessary responsibility, and,
shrunk above all from the responsibility of handing
over to its successors a diminished empire. Let
Russia keep what she has obtained, England now
said, thus far and no further. Asia is large enough
for both Russia and England. There is no reason
for constant war or fears of war between them
Lord Beaconsfield said he could not at present
communicate the details of the proposed reforms in
Asia Minor, as the Government was acting with
Turkey, which is an independent power, and whose
consent is required to all the measures. The Gov-
ernment's operations were in the interest of peace
and civilization. They did not mainly rely on, fleets
and armies, however great, but on the conscious-
ness of Eastern nations, that our Empire is one of
liberty and justice.
Earl Granville said he would have preferred that
the danger arising from Turkish misgovernment had
been provided against by European concert. He
complained that the interests of the Greeks had
been disregarded. He did not think that Cyprus
would add to'the power of defending the Suez Canal.
It would entail cost and responsibilities not worth
Sthe gain.
Lord Derby generally approved of what had been
done in Europe, but he questione'l the value of Cy-
prus, and declared that he quitted the Cabinet be-
cause he dissented from the decision to seize a naval
station in the Eastern Mediterrauean, consisting of
Cyprus, and a point on the main land by a secret
expedition from India without the consent of the
Sultan.
Lord Salisbury pointed out that Lord Derby had
not given due weight to the part which Austria play.
ed in the new arrangement. If Turkey now goes to
pieces, Russia would not rule the Bosphorus. He
denied Lord Derby's statement in regard to a secret
expedition. He said India would not have remain-
ed loyal if Russia had been allowed to rule on the
the Tigris and the Euphrates.
Lord Derby emphatically maintained the truth of
his statement relative to the secret expedition, say-
ing he had notes made at the time.
Lord Salisbury said he believed that Lord Derby's

jealousy of some of the powers in regard to Greece.
With Servia and Montenegro independent, Bulga-
ria pri.:tically so, and Bosnia and Herzegovina ir-
revocably annexed to Austria, it was impossible to
deny that the partition of Turkey, if not as com-
plete, was as great as that of Poland. He desired
the elevation of the native races instead of the su-
pervision of Turkey by another power, and com-
plained of thle Government's policy from first to
last. He said they must feel some shame when
they looked upon the results obtained and what
might have been obtained without so much blood-
shed, if they had not jealously severed themselves
frdm Russia two years ago. They had left Russia
the finest possible field for working against the
present arrangement. The British plenipotentia-
ries had throughout the Congress done their ut-
most to prop up Turkey and keep down the subject
races. For the first time in history their attitude
was not in accordance with free institutions. The
assertions of Lord Beaconsfield relative to British
efforts in favor of Greece were not supported by
anything in tie protocols. The conclusion of the
ng'lo-Russian agreement was a practical contra-
ction of the high-sounding pretensions of Lord
Shisbury's note. The Government thereby sur-
renctlred their power of action in the cause of free-
dom.' He urged objections similar to those made
'by Lo6d Hartiugton to the military situation
created by tlie Anglo-Turkish convention. He had
been associated with all the greatest statesmen of
ngland for half a century, and he did not hesitate
to s hat not one of them would have imposed
such a re.p asibility on the country. He could
not regard such policy as within the limits of reas-
onable statesmanship. He asked what' the Gov-
ernment would have done if a foreign power had
concluded such a convention. The Government
-had. in ratifying the convention before Parliament
was made acquainted with it, pushed the power of
the Ctrown to an extreme which had been avoided
by the greatest stntesmen. A new phase of the
Eastern question was opened by this startling nov-
elty which set the law of Europe at naught, was
anj ust to otlier powers, overrode the rights of Par-
lianmeut. and laid new burdens on the people.
Mr. Gladstone spoke two hours and a half, and
was greeted with loud cheers as he took his seat.
After a hItg debate between a number of minor
members, Mr. Assbeton Cross, Home Secretary, re-
plied to Mr. Gladstone's speech. He declared that
She did not know whether to consider Mr. Gladstone
the humble follower or the rival of Lord Har-
-tington. Mr. Cross then entiertd into a detailed
(futatiou of Mr. Gladstone's charges, but his argu-
ments were mainly such as have been used before.
He maintained that the Ccngre-s would have been
ihipossible without the Anglo-Russian agreement.
-He said the Turki.-h convention had not increased
'England's responsibilities. He only hoped that the
opposition would assert at the next General election
that England had no interests in Asia. The de-
bate was postponed until Thursday.
Lord. Beaconsfield, replying to the letter read by
Mr. Gladstone in the House of Commons to-day,
says tihe compilation of the list of the offensive epi-
thets used by the gentleman would entail a search
over a period of two and a half years. Lord Bea-
consfield cites expressions of Mr. Gladstone that he
(Beaconsfield) had degraded and debased the great
name of England,: that he had sold the Greeks,
and that he had been guilty of an unsurpassed act
,?f duplicity.

The Governor has the honor to communicate to
the Honorable the Legislative Council a Letter
addressed to him at his request on 9th in-
stant by the Attorney General, explaining how
owing to the delay which occurred in the receipt
here of the confirmation by the Crown of the Act
No. 5 of 1875 he, the Attorney General, was de-
prived of the sum of 14 1/, part of the Salary
granted to him under that Act in commutation of
fees of Office.
"It will be seen from the A I torney General's state-
Smeat. that the fees cf his Office had been calculated
tor the purpose of commutation at 70 a year, and
I that in the year 1876 they would7-had they not
been commuted-have amounted to more than that
sum ; but that owing to the accidental delay in the
receipt of the confirmation of the Act by the Crown
the Attorney General only received for the year
1876 the sum of 55 19/ instead of the 70 granted
by the Act.
The Governor trusts the Legislature will find
means to repay to the Attorney General this s'im of
14 1/ which was deducted from his salary for the
year 1876, in consequence of an accidental delay in
the Colonial Office.

There was exhibited, in one of the displays of
jewelry, in the Centennial Exhibition a very pecu-
liar and costly watch. It was about the ordinary
size, and struck a musical bell for the hour, half-
Shour, and quarter, and also foreach minute that
passed of the unexpired quarter. It told the time
-to the fifth of a second, and was so arranged that
two horses, starting at different times, could be
imled by it. It was-also a calendar, showing the
day, month, and year, and the phases of the moon,
as well as the 29th of February every fourth year.
Its great price, $2,000, as well as its noise from the
constantly striking bell, prevented .any one from
buying it. It was offered in the principal jewelry
-torei of Philad Iphia and New York without suc-
cess, and at last found its way to San Fiancisco.
8" 1eral weeks ago a minor from One-IIorse Gulch,
Arizoi.n, who had struck a wonderful lead, and was
looking for a way to spend his money, saw it in a
*jeelcti's window and bought it. It is a Swiss
walcli, and is said to have cost to manufacture
much more than the $2,000 for which it was sold.

The condition of Nobelling, who attempted to
Assassinate the German Emi eror, is improving. He
aits erect in bed, eats %%ith an appetite, and an-
i%\era in a ram:ent aiy way questions that mia be ad-
dreiied to him. All his replies, however, are accom-
panied by an idiotic smile, and medical men-consider
that if his life should be saved he would never
perfectly recover his senses.

Lord Saftes1try, while presiding at a meet-
ing of one of the London charities, said that
he had lately lost a servant who had been in his
family over fifty-four years, and that he had still
in his house a nurse who had served him for
forty-ipine years. This person, he said, ruled
aliuost supreme in the house, and any member of his
family would as soon think of taking a leap into the
Red sea as of retiring to rest without bidding the old
servat gd)od night.

JAMES PILLING.
July 27th, 1878.

THE ENGLISH ADMIRAL.
Duncan, lying off the Texel with his own flag-
ship, the Venerable, and only one other vessel,
heard that the whole Dutch fleet was putting to sea.
He told Captain Hotham to anchor alongside of him
in the narrowest part of the channel, and fight his
vessel till she sank. I have taken the depth of
the water" added he, "and when the Venerable
goes down, my flag will still fly." And you observe
this is no naked Viking in a prehistoric period;
but a Scotch member of Parliament, with a smat-
tering of the classics, a telescope, a cocked hat of
great sizo, and flannel underclothing. In the same
spirit, Nelson went into Aboukir with six colors
flying; so that even if five were shot away, it should
not be imagined he had struck. IHe too must
needs wear his four stars outside his Admiral's
frock, to be a butt for sharpshooters. "In honor I
gained them," he said to objectors, adding with
sublime illogicality, in honor I will die with
them." Captain Douglas, of the Royal Oak, when
the Dutch fired his vessel in the Thames, sent his.
men ashore, but was burned along with her himself
rather, than desert his post without orders.
When Raleigh sailed into Cadiz, and all the
ships opened fire on him at once, he scorned to
shoot a gun, and made answer with a flourish of
insulting trumpets. I like this bravado better than,
the wisest dispositions to insure victory; it comes
from the heart and goes to it. GOD has made
nobler heroes, but he never made a finer gentleman
than Walter Raleigh. And as our Admirals were
full of heroic superstitions, and had a strutting and
vain-glorious style of fight, so they discovered a
startling eagerness for battle, and courted war like
a mistress. When the news came to Essex, before
Cadiz, that the attack had been decided, he thre.v
his hat into the sea. It is in this way that a school
boy hears of a half holiday; but this was a bearded
man, of great possessions, who had justteen allow-
ed to risk his life. Benbow could not lie still in
his bunk after he had lost his leg; he must be on
deck in a basket to direct and animate the fight. I
said they loved war like a mistress; yet I think
there are not many mistresses we should continue
to woo under similar circumstances. Trowbridge
went ashore with the Culloden, and was able to
take no part in the battle of the Nile. The merits
of that ship and her gallant Captain," wrote Nelson
to the Admiralty, "are too well known to benefit
by anything I could say. Her misfortune was
great in getting aground, while her more fortunate
companions were in the full tide of happiness."
This is a notable expression, and depicts the whole
great hearted, big-spoken stock of the English Ad-
mirals to a hair. It was to be in the full tide of
happiness" for Nelson to destroy 5,525 of hid fel-
low creatures, and have his own 6calp torre o '"-
a piece of langridge shot. Hear him again ''
penhagen: "A shot through the :uainmast L
the splinters about; and he observed to one of hi*
officers with a smile, 'It is warm work and this
day may be the last to any of us at a moment;' and
then, stopping short at the gangway, added, with
emotion, But mark you-I would not be elsewhere
for thousands."-The Cornhill Magazine.

A young Chinese .Princess, wife of the Ambassador
of the Empire to London and Paris, attracted much
attention at the Paris Exhibition lately as she pro-
ceeded from one section to another, drawn in a bath
chair, and in a magnificent costume of her country.
She is wholly unacquainted with either the French or
English language, and was accompanied by Mrs.
Hart, wife of the Commissioner General of China,
who explained to her all the curiosities of the Exhi-
bition. The Princess was interested in all she saw,
her pleasure partaking of the childlike delight attend-
ing the first sight ol so many marvels,

finished his inspection of the Indian troops, and taken
wing for Naples on board the swift-steaming llicon.
Those who are most inclined to speak !o the p i.iti ,nof
His Royal Highness as a sinecure will ha;'dly have the
courage to deny that he has worked hard during his
stay at Malta. Not a moment has been unoccupied
since his landing. Parades, receptions, visits of
ceremony and duty, have succeeded in quick alter-
nation, and this at the most trying season of the
year, when intermittent fever is easily caught by
those unaccustomed to the roasting sunshine and un-
healthy sirocco. It may be well to give at epitome
of what His Royal Highness has done since he came.
On Sunday night he landed, on Monday forenoon he
went round some of the forts and camps, on Monday
afternoon he inspected minutely the entire force at
Malta, and entertained a large party at dinner sub-
sequently ; on Tuesday he presided at a review of
the Cavalry and Field Artillery on the Marsa race-
ground in the morning, resumed his inspection of forts
and camps, and sat out a formal banquet to local
notabilities, military, naval, ecclesiastical, legal and
cival, in the evening; on Wednesday he was present
at a drill of the Indian Infantry on the Floriana in the
early morn, held a levee in the afternoon, and assist-
ed at a dinner in his honour at the Union Club after-
wards; on Thursday he visited the Archbishop at
0'itta Veccha, drove over to the field sports of the
Garrison and Expeditionary Force at Marsa, went
through the farce of another formal dinner in the
evening, and left at night, escaping the bore-
dom of a salute. All his appointments were
kept with the punctuality of the Horse Guards, clock,
which we all know never goes wrong. In the tele-
grams and letters 1 have already forwarded I have
given you the sap of all I could see or learn of the
Indian Expedition and the Duke's opinion of it, and
of Malta (to which, by the way, he is no stranger,
having been on the island twice before); and it only
rests with me now to pick up the disjecta membra of
my note book, and in a final desultory communica-
tion bring my task to a conclusion.
The words addressed by His Royal Hihbnes-: to
the colonels gathered in a ring, on horseback, around
him after the first inspection, were as follows, as
nearly as possible:-Gentlemen, I have made a long
journey at a trying time for the purpose of this in-
spection, but I may tell you frankly at once I have
been amply repaidfor all my trouble and inconvenience
by what I have seen this afternoon. I never had the
Opportunity of looking at Indian troops before. I
I had heard a good deal of th from those well quali-
fled to judge, and had been led to entertain a high
opinion of them, but I freely admit that their appear-
ance under arms, and the admirable way in which
they performed every movement, has astonished me;
it beats every conception I had formed on the sub-
ject, and I shall take care to report most favorably
of them and of the Garrison of Malta to Her Majes-
ty. Gentlemen, I thank you, to whom this excell-
ence is due, and wish you a good evening." As the
Indian Infantry were filing off by fours, with bands
playing (European music, alas!) the Duke rode up
to a position by the Strada Giardino, and again very
carefully "took stock" of them. As the Bengalisi
passed by at a swinging pace he frequently exclaimed,
"A remarkably handsome set of men!" This was
no flattery, for in literal truth they are. A pleasant
smile greeted those lively yellow dwarfs, the Goork-
has, stepping by with short rifles at the trail to a
cherry quick-step, with a regular pit-pit-pat, very
much recalling the gait of Italian Bersaglieri, the
Belgian Carabieneri, or the Chasseurs of Vincennes.
The Duke was satisfied with them, satisfied with
all, and scrupulously saluted the colours of every
regiment as they were borne by. The Madras Sap-
pers were usually tidy looking in their full dress
bright scarlet tunics, freshly unpacked, and deep-
ening by contrast the sombre shade of their chimney-
cowl turbans. Their Bombay brethren of the pick
and shovel had donned snowy coverings over their
Sapper caps. and 26th Bombay Infantry had exchang-
ed their serviceable kharkee, or mud coloured turbans,
for spotless muslin; both were very pretty in effect,
but more suited to a picnic than field work. The
washing bill of the army that indulged in such
luxuries would be no trifle. Apropos of head-gear,
there is no end to the manner of folding the turban.
A The practised officer can tell the religion, the race,
and often the very birthplace, of a recruit by his
mode of arranging the regulation seven and a half
yards of stuff round his skull. The officers of the
Bombay Cavalry wear pith helmets, but those of
the 10th Bengal Lancers don the native turban,
whose sweeping elegance few devices of East or
SWest-of the Ezra Bazaar at Calcutta or the out-
Sfitters shop at Bond Street-can equal; none can
Excel. The European horseman in Asiatic garb is a
model of hybrid chivalry-a sort of Coeur de Lion in
Saladin garb-a conjunction of insular strength and
the grace of the desert. Such a spectacle as is fur.-
Snished only once in a life it was: these serried rows
of nine-pound guns rattled about as if they were
toys; the billowy squadrons, with pennons floating
like "war's red crest upon their heads"; the sue-
cession of armed men on foot, tramping along with
erect bearing, the regular lines of bayonets advan-
cing in flashing parallels, the hands and feet moving
with pendulum cadence. But has not the scene or
scenes like to it, been drawn hundreds of times
before ? Why prolong details ? Sufficient be it to
say that it was a pattern review; that, contrary
to apprehensions, it was without jar or mistake, and
that the leader before whom it was held-and he
has as extensive an experience of military pageants
as any man living-was thoroughly and completely
satisfied. He came to criticise, no doubt; he
remained to praise.


CAPTURING A GRAMPUS.

One of the most Ferocious and Formidable Inhabitants
) of the Ocean.
On Thursday last an unprecedented arrival in our
harbor (St. John's, N. F.) took place. Two gram-
puses of large size weie observed spouting with great
vigor and dashing about in a frantic, bewildered man-
ner in the waters of the harbor. They had probably
been tempted to pass the narrow entrance of the
harbor while in pursuit of caplin, which are now
around the coast in enormous shoals. After a time
one of them escaped, and made its way to sea, but
the other, being pursued by a boat's crew from. Her
Majesty's steamship Sirius without a view to cap-
ture it, headed for the western side of the harbor,
and at length got entangled in some piles, and
became completely powerless, its tail having become
fast between two stakes, Ropes were passed round
it, and it was dragged ashore, where it soon died. It
-.. -rod to be a full-sized grampus, twenty-five feet
inches in length, and fifteen feet in girth at its
,Jickest part. Its mouth when opeueJ, di-,clos.-! an
array of powerful teeth, forty-four in number, large,
conical, and somewhat hooked, those furthest back
being flattened at the suniuit The tail is seven feet
iu width, and forms a very powerful propeller. The
head is short and round, the lower jaw somewhat
bent upward. It has three fins-two pectorals,
large and oval, and a dorsal nearly on the middle of
the body. The color of the skin on the back is a
deep black, the sides and abdomen being white.
Over the eye is a large white patch.
Thus it will be seen that the grampus is a formida-
ble animal, nearly half the size of the greenland
whale. It is seldom seen around these shores, its
favorite resort being G re.nlai!] and Davis's straits.
It is sometimes seen, in small herds, in the British
seas, but is rarely captured. It is on record that
one was captured in the Thames in 1759, which was
24 feet in length; two more in 1772, and another in
1793, which measured 31 feet in length. One was


taken in Lynn harbor in 1829, and was despatched .
with much difficulty by a crowd of boatmen. One
of those taken in the Thames in 1772 was pierced
with three harpoons, and pulled the attached boat
twice from Blackwall to Greenwich :at the rate of 8
miles an hour against the tide. So long as it was
alive no boat could venture to approach it, and the
dying efforts of this formidable creature were very
terrible. It was finally killed opposite Greenwich
Hospital." Had it not be~in that its tail was caught
in the way I have described, between two posts
near a wharf, this specimen would have escaped,
as there were no appliances ready for its capture.
The grampus is a voracious and warlike creature,
devouring immense quantities of cod, herring, hali-
but, and skate. It attacks the' porpoises and dol-
phins, and makes fierce war on seals. It is said that
a small herd of them frequently attack a true whale,
tearing huge mouthfuls of its flesh with their power-
ful teeth, like so many mastiffs around a wild bull,
and covering it with blood and wounds, till the great
giant of the deep succumbs to its more agile foes.

FATAL MOUNTAIN ASCENT.
Two young En lishrieu Lost on a Volcano near
Arequipa.
(From the South Pacific Times.)
A letter from Arequipa gives particulars of a
fatal accident to two gentlemen who had made the
ascent of the Misti, a volcano about 12,520 feet
above that city, and 20,230 feet above the level of
the sea.
On Saturday, the llth of May, a party of three
gentleman started from Arequipa to make the as-
cent-Mr. Stephen Ryder of the house of Fletcher
& Co. Arequipa, Mr. Rothwell, a young man of 19,
who only recently arrived from England as a clerk
in the same house, and a Mr. Bulpett, lately arrived
per the Cotopaxi on a tour to the west coast with a
friend. On Sunday, the 12th, Mr. Bulpett returned
to Arequipa alone, having made the ascent. He
had gone on ahead of the other two. He returned
the same way he went, and having seen nothing of
the others after his first separation, he concluded
that they had given up the idea of going to the top
and had gone back to Arequipa.
On Monday, the 13th, Mr. Ryder's horse, which
bad been tied up at about vJ,..) feet from the top,
returned to Arequipa without a bridle, which at
once aroused suspicions that something must be
wrong, and parties immediately went in search of
the missing pair. For several days nothing was
heard of them. They had taken uei.hf: provisions
nor blankers with them. It was evident, however,
that they had reached the top of the volcano, as
they had hoisted a flag, which was found floating
in the breeze. The Prefect of Arequipa sent an
officer and troops to scour the mountain, and innu-
merable private search parties followed,
At 10 p.m. on the 17th of May news reached
Arequipa that the body of Mr. Ryder had been
found far down a precipice in a small recess where
the Indians could hardly get to him, even by the
help of a rope and at the greatest risk. He was
found in a sitting posture, with his feet jammed
into a small opening. How he got there is a mys-
tery. It was a point where he could neither get
down further nor yet get up again. It is thought
he had been dead above three days when found.
He had taken off his coat, hat, watch and chain
and placed them with his pipe at his feet. His
pants were torn, probably in rolling down, for he
must have rolled a long distance, and one boot was
off, evidently in the effort to get his foot free. From
the traces all about the poor fellow must have
wandered about for days, probably at the last rav-
ing mad.
Another expedition with ladders, ropes and all
appliances, went out on the 18th in order to recover
and bring In Ryder's body, as the Indian who found
it could not move it, and had to leave it covered
over with stones until he could procure assistance.
The expedition returned on the evening of the 21st
bringing the body and on the 22nd it was buried in
Arequipa amid the general regrets of both natives
and foreigners. Up to the latest account the body
of Mr. Rothwell had not been found, but from
traces it is believed that be must have gone over a
a precipice in another direction. No doubt Mr.
Ryder met his death from extreme cold, and it is
too probable that Mr. Rothwell shared the same sad
fate. This opinion is strengthened by the fact, as
stated above, that the unfortunate party was unpro-
vided with blankets and other necessaries for such
a dangerous, and we might add, useless expedition.

Though it is said that the wealth of Great Britain,
as indicated in taxable incomes, has fallen off in the
last two years, the increase for the period of twelve
years is something remarkable. A recently published
Parliamentary return shows that the assessments for
1876-7 amounted to 490,344,906, against 330,-
580,729 in 1864-5, the increase being most marked in
the assessments on emp!wy nmnts and industrial estab-
lishments and appliances. The increase of actual in-
comes is estimated as nearly fifty per cent during the
above period.
Mr. Gladstone, being asked what were the prospects
for the Liberal Party in case of new elections, gave
"an opinion as is an opinion" in those words; "My
opinion on the point you name would be intrinsically
of little value, while it might tend to mislead by an
appearance of authority. In truth the materials for
the decision are only now in preparation. Assuredly,
it will be taken according to the estimated effect on the
interests of the party."

Above all earthly gifts a good mother stands
preeminent: she is worth her weight in gold-more
than an army of acquaintances. Those who have


played around the same mother's smiles, in whose
veins the same blood flows, are bound by a sacred
tie that never can be broken. Distance may sepe-
rate, quarrels may occur, but those who have a ca-
pacity to love anything must have at times a bub-
bling up of soul recollections, and a yearning after
the joys of by-gone days Every woman has a
mission on earth. There is Something to do"
for every one-a household to put in order, a child
to attend to, some class of unfortunates, degraded
or homeless humanity to befriend. That soul is
poor indeed that leaves the world without having
exerted an influence that will be felt for good after
she has passed away.

EASTERN QUESTIONS.
Trouble in Bosnia.-The leaders of the outbreak
at the Bosnian capitol threaten resistance to the,
Austrian Army. It is believed that the city can be
taken easily by the army of occupation. Germany
bes ratified the Treaty of Berlin. The Servian
forces 're still under arms.
A protest has been made against the English
Army expenditures in the House of Commons.
The Occupation of Bosnia-The Austrian Advance.
-VirxNA, Wednesday, July 81.-An Austrian
force, moving parallel with General Pbillopovich, has
reached Novi unresisted..
General Phillopovich telegraphs that he received
cordial addresses at Brod and Derbend.
Doir,ys of the Mob at the Bosnian Capital -Official
reports from the Bosnian frontier states that the
followers of the Turkish agitator, who raised an in.
surrection against the Ottoman authorities at Sera.
jevo, deposed the civil Governor, and stormed and
plundered the armory, after a sanguinary conflict
with the troops.-
Resistance to General Phillopovich Threatened.-
VIENNA, July 81.-Tbe receipt of the news of the
seizure of the armory at Serajevo by the insurgents
has caused considerable excitement here. The
Mohammedans, who constitute the majority of the
inhabitants of Serajevo, are reported to be most
prominent in the revolt, but the Greek Christians
-are said to be also concerned in it. The insurgents
threaten to resist the entrance of General Phillopo-
vich at any cost, The position of Serajovo would
enable a garrison of skilled soldiers, furnished with
modern arms, to defend it with some success; but
the armory was poorly supplied with arms, and it
is thought that General Phillopovich will not
have much trouble in taking the place.
The first despatch announcing the revolt came
direct from Serajevo, but later on telegraphic com-
munication was suspended, and much doubt exists
is to the authenticity of the numerous reports
since received. One account says that the Mahom.
miedan commander of the city himself instigated
the revolt, in order to free himself from the respon-
sibility of either surrendering the city to General
Phillopovich, or making what he knew would be a
futile resistance.
The Opposition in England-The Army Expendi-
tures deemed Extravagant.-LoNDON, July 31.-The
army supplementary estimate for additional expen-
diture in consequence of the war between Russia
and Turkey was issued to-day. It amounts to
1,545,500. In the House of Commons, Mr. Hay-
ter (Liberal) gave notice of a resolution declaring
that this expenditure is extravagant and burthen-
some to the tax payers, and ought not to be sanc-
tioned by Parliament.
The Interest in Mr. Gladstone's Speech.-The flagg-'
ing interest in the debate of Lord Hartington's
resolution in the House of Commons was revived
yesterday by the Speech of Mr. Gladstone, which is
generally regarded as one of the ex-Premier's
greatest efforts, and is probably the culminating
point in the present discussion.
The !Rhodope Insurrection.--The Russian Commis-
sioner Withdraws from the Inquiry.-LoNDON, July
81.-A delayed despatch, dated Constantinople,
July 29, says: The Russian Commissioner has
objected to the continuation of the inquiry
into the Rhodope insurrection, as the insurgents
have disclosed some agreement between themselves
and the Russian commanders. The Russian Com-
missioner threatened to withdraw if the inquiry
was continued. The English, French, Italian and
Austrian Ambassadors at Constantinople, being
consulted, replied by telegraph that the inquiry
should continue. The Russian commissioner then
withdrew, leaving his dragoman to represent him.
Servia's Forces still under Arms-LoNDON, July
31.-Reuter's telegram from Belgrade states that
the concentration of Servian troops continues, and
reinforcements are going to the army of observation
on the Bosnian frontier. The 'whole standing
army, numbering 20,000 men, and half of the mi-
litia, are still under arms.
Germany Ratifies the Treaty.-BERLIN, July 31.
-The Crown Prince Frederick William has rati.
fled the Treaty of Berlin. Ratifications will be
exchanged here on Saturday next.

WAR OFFICE, JULY 12.-The Queen has been
pleased to appoint Lieut.-General Sir Garnet Jo-
seph Wolseley, G.C.M.G., K.C.B., to be the Admin-
istrator of the Island of Cyprus, under the style of
her Majesty's High Commissioner and Commander.
in-Chief in the said island. ,
Lieut.-General Sir Garnet Wolseley was anxious
to take out with him Second Lieutenant E. Vincent,
Coldstream Guards, on his staff to Cyprus. This
young officer was specially selected on account of
his knowledge of modern Greek, Italian, and Hin-
dostanee, but at the last moment his Royal High-
ness the Field Marshal Commanding-in-Chief
found it necessary to withhold his sanction on ac-
count of Mr. Vincent not having yet completed the
necessary service to qualify for the staff, and Sir
Garnet's subsequent appeals proved unavailing. It
is, nevertheless, creditable to the young soldier to
have thus been singled out for service, and the
junior members of the profession will see how desi-
rable a knowledge of languages is to the British
officer. Lieutenant Vincent, it may be remarked,
passed first for the student dragoman service and
Second out of 800 candidates for his commission in


the Army, having previously served as a subaltern
in the Militia, aid travelled much in the East.
There is no harm now in stating that if war be a
danger, this country was in great danger indeed--
-,,_ that within a few days back Great Britain and
Russia were in such relations that peace seemed
impossible. Every concession had been 0le on
both sides, every compromise exhausted, an after
all had been said and done escape from war seemed
so hopeless, negotiation so impossible, that Lord
Beaconsfield had actually given directions for his
departure from Berlin-with the result of instant
r. Then it was that Prince Bismarck made his
supreme effort to secure Germany from the danger
which, if war should ensue, threatened her, in the
outlet of furious passion and political hate, and
appealed to the Russian Plenipotentiaries to avert
the catastrophe. He had heard of Lord Beacons-
field's resolve, and he had resolved that peace
must be the result of the Berlin Congress. And
he prevailed. A very sagacious and far-seeing
man bas declared that it was the assassin's arm
which saved Europe from a tremendous war; it was
Nobiling's crime which gave peace to the world."
Certain i' is that when we were all piping and
singing our flashy songs of joy and uttering our
cries of "Peace is assured !" the country was all
but at war with Russia,-Army and Navy Gazette,
July 20.

The Attack cn the English MAan.of.War Boat.-
LONDON, July 22.--Mr. Layard, the British Ambassa-
dor at Constantinople, has received information that
when the Russian Circassians fired upon the English
man-of-war boat rear the Gulf of Saros on the 17th
inst., there was no officer near them, and also that the
English sailors who had been arrested were releged
a soon as they were brought before an officer.
Great preparations are makii in London for thk
civic honors to Lords Beaconsfield -and Salisbury ontt
Saturday next, when they will be entertained at a
bAnquet given by the Lord Mayor.


SUICIDE OF COL. ELDRED.
HE SHOOTS HIMSELF IN TIE HEAD WITH A REVOLVER
AND bTES INSTANTLY.
The tragic death of Col. Nicholas 1. S. Eldred., at
an early hour this morning (July 3), caused'a feeling
of sadness among his many acquaintances and friends
upon the street, who had known him as a robust and
apparently healthy man. His fine personal appear-
ance gave him the air of one in the best of health,
although he was in, reality a great sufferer.
Ar. Eldred returned from Bermuda some font
weeks ago, where he had passed the winter according
to his custom for some years past. During his stay
there he had met with several accidents, and on the
voyage home was injured by being thrown against the
bulwarks of the steamer by a wave which broke over
her. Since Thursday he haW been confined to hib
room with neuralgia of the spine, and had partaken of
no food since that day. Last eveninghe dressed him.
self and set up, but afterward was restless, and wan-
dering about the house, unable to sleep. At eight
o'clock this morning there was nobody in the house
but Mr. Eldred and his wife. She went to his door
to offer him a cup of coffee, when, just as she was
about to open the door, she heard the report of a
pistol. Being terribly alarmed, she immediately ran
to a neighbour's and summoned assistance. Upon
opening Col. Eldred's room he was discovered dead
upon his bed, with his pistol in his hand, and a bullet
wound just above the right ear, It is probable that
death ensued instantaneously after the shot,
Coroner Shank visited the scene of the tragedy on
being notified. As the circumstances all point to a
clear case of suicide it was considered unnecessary to
hold an investigation, and no inquest was made.-
Auburn (Cayna Co., N. Y.) Chronicle, July 3.

THE POLES AND THE CONGRESS.
The Dziennik Poznanski publishes the text of the
address which is to be laid by the Poles before the
Congress. After observing that the object of the
Powers taking part in the Congress is alleged to be a
permanent settlement of the Eastern Question the
address states that the Poles, having a more thorough
knowledge than any other nation of the government
and policy of Russia, consider it their duty to call the
attention of the European public and of the Powers to
the chief obstacle to the attainment of the above ob-
ject. The document proceeds:-
The Eastern question, and the dangers presented by
it to a peaceful development of civilization, arose from
the partition of Poland. The unnatural enlargement
of the power of Russia which was produced by this
event disturbed the European equilibrium more than
any political changes which occurred before or since.
The blow dealt at the foundations of international law
made the other powers anxious about their own fate,
. and the advance of Russia to the bor-
ders of Central and Southeastern Europe was especi-
ally menacing to Austria and Turkey. Since the
partition 61 Poland it has been a leading object of
Russian policy to prepare the Slavonic populations of
the Southeast for absorption into the Russian empire.
. The Eastern question, which is now Turk-
ish, will next become Austrian, and the dangers it
involves will then penetrate to the centre of Europe.
No half measures, such as the creation of autono-
mies" and independent principalities, will avail to
check the advance of Russia in this direction; the
States on the Balkan peninsula, whether dependent or
independent, will always remain the tools of the ag-
gressive plans of the empire until they become its
prey. There is but one mode of permanently avert-
ing the dangers above indicated-namely, to thrust
back the power of Russia to its natural frontiers by
re-establishing between her and Europe the Kingdom
of Poland, which was never aggressive, and which,
being connected with the West by civilization and its
literary and political tendencies, would find it neces-
sary for its own prosperity to seek to be on good
terms with its neighbours. By such a restoration of
the political balance people would be enabled to
breathe again after the oppression of militarism, and
to devote themselves safely to the labours of peace.
The Eastern question will not be solved, the peace of
Europe will not be assured, until Poland is again
made an independent State. Her history of a thou-
sand years gives her a claim to be restored to the
European family. During the first centuries of her
existence she repeatedly shed her blood to check the
incursions of Eastern invaders. In the fourteenth

century she established the University ot Cracow,
which became the principal school of learning in
'Eastern Europe, and in the fifteenth and sixteenth
centuries several Poles gained a world-wide roputa-
tion as pioneers of science. Religious liberty was in
Poland always a principle of government, and politic-
al freedom, which had taken the form of a represen-
tative assembly in Poland in the fifteenth century,
was provided for by the constitution of the 3rd of
May, 1793, in a manner which excited the'admiration
of the most eminent statesmen of the day. And
though Poland has now for nearly a century been de-
prived of her independence, she has continued to de-
velop her literature, to assist in scientific progress,
and to assert her historic rights. These rights she
has never renounced, and she never will renounce
them, though she has been deprived of those which
were guaranteed to her by international law. What
has become of the solemn promises made to us at
the Congress of Vienna ? And how has the Russian
government fulfilled the promises it made to the Eu-
ropean Powers in 1863 ? It has abolished all Polish
national institutions; it has excluded the Polish lan-
guage from Polish offices and courts of justice; it for.
bids under penalties the use of the Polish language in
the towns of Lithuania, Podolia and the Ukraine; it
imposes special takes on the Poles which are not paid
by Russians in Poland, and forbids Poles to buy land
in their own country; and it punishes with death and
banishment those who refuse to enter the Russian


Church. Sach a state of things in Poland surely de-
prives Russia of the right to claim any advantages
freow a war undertaken in the name of principles
which she is continually violating. And if
our voices are to have no good result for ourselves, let
them at least be a warning to Europe.-Pall Mall
