Genl. Secy. F. C. U. Society.
August 20th, 1878.

Governor Dundas, of Barbados has by proclama-
tion appointed Sunday the 11th inst., the anniversary
of the great-hurricane, which devastated that island
in 1831, forty-seven) ears ago, to be kept in commem-
oration of that event with special services, in all the
Chapels and places of worship in the island.,

The aggressive discussion of the acts and doings
of-this ('ongres-. l,- nearly ceased. In the division
on Lord Hartington's resolution, Ministers had a
larger m'ijo itr than usual. There was no waver-
ing in their ranks; on the contrary, they gained'
half a dozen Liberal votes and the vacillating help
of the Home Rulers, and in this way their majority
was carried up to one hundred and forty-three.
The ceremony of conferring the freedom of the City
of London on Lords Beaconsfield and Salisbury had
been performed, and was fitly followed by. a dinner
at the Mansion House. So that the achievements of
the two English Ministers at the Congress continued
to receive that-popular favor which was awarded
them when, in the first flush of their glory, they
returned to London; and newspaper criticisms and
the attacks of the Liberals have not availed much
against the current. It may be true as charged;,
that Lord Beaconsfield, while claiming the sacred
character of treaties and the honorable obligations
of all parties who make them to observe their terms,
entered the Congress with two secret documents
which went beVond, and in effect annulled, the
treaties to be there made and considered. It may
be true as charged, that while insisting on the pre-
servation of the Turkish power, he agreed to terri-
torial changes which hamper and dwarf that power.
It may be true as charged, that Cyprus was taken
to atone, and perhaps conceal, the unacceptable
conditions England had agreed to; and that Cy-
prus, loaded with the protectorate of Turkey, is a
dangerous acquisition. It may be true as charged,
that the other Powers are dissatisfied, that Russia
and Italy both chafe, and that Austria has as much
as she can do to overcome the resistance to her pos-
session of Bosnia. All these charges have been
weighed and considered both in England and Ame-
rica, and in the latter country where they should
be dispassionately treated, the policy of the Pre-
mier is characterized as superficially brilliant,
but radically unsound." All this -may be true.
But one fact remains, that the national prestige and
diplomatic importance of England have been immen-
sely served by her late attitude. Another fact remains
that the call of the Eastern troops to Malta, over
which some still shake their heads, was a masterly
revelation of resources -.which had never been sus-
pected or recognized. And no matter how encum-
bered, the possession of Cyprus. is -believed to be
another achievement tending to consolidate and in-
crease those resources, and the firmness of English
power in the East. Resting on these convictions,
public feeling and opinion have sustained the Min-
istry with a unanimity which no croaking or warn-
ings could alarm, and which Mr. Gladstone's splen-
did attacks, or Mr. Lowe's acrid oratory, could
scarcely'shake. The record has been submitted and
approved, and for the present, and apparently for
some time to come, the triumphant Conservatives
promise to retain their political ascendancy.

The weather in the West Indies, as with us, has
been unusually warm and oppressive. The Deme-
rara Colonist says, "though our geographical posi-
tion is almost directly under the Equator, we very
seldom have to undergo such warm weather as we
have experienced during two or three days lately."
" Gall's Jamaica News Letter" says :-"Both here
(Kingston) and everywhere in Jamaica the weather
has been almost warm enough to brew 'up a deluge,
and meteorologists are of opinion here, and in the
other islands, that this strange weather indicates
(as past experience has shewn) a hurricane season
at no distant date, when cyclonic influence will
prove mischievous in some part of the West India
region, where the reaction commences. Bishop
Westbury, of Montserrat, has been the first to
sound the alaiM nbout what is coming. Our.fellow
colonists are advised to be watchful and to-be pre-
pared. An approaching storm, to a careful ob-
server, will give sufficient notice of its approach
for them to be prepared."
Every paper received tells us of a torrid wave"
passing over America and Europe, raising the tem-
perature to an unusual heat, and deaths by sun-
stroke have been very common, not only in the
United States, but also in Great Britain and on the
Continent of Europe.

term conveniently applied to those phenomena so fre-
quently witnessed under the influence ot high temper-
atures. The sun* is, however, only indirectly respon-
sible for the deaths from what is called the coup de
soleil. No doubt the majority of deaths occur
amongst those exposed to the sun-, but death from
sunstroke, as it is termed, can easily happen to a
man who is not exposed to daylight. Sunstroke
arrises simply frpm overheating of the blood. The
man who, when the temperature in the shade indicates
90 dg. Fahr. does not perspire is in eminent danger
of a "stroke," arind the more one perspires, especially
about the head, thie better for one's safety, though not
perhaps for comfort. Perspiration is, in fact the
safety-valve of the human engine. The evaporation
of the water exuding from the human body during
hot weather absorbs an enormous quantity of heat,
and so cools the blood, which would otherwise become
overheated, and practically decomposed, by the action
of heat on oneof its constituents. The man troubled
by heat flies to drink, and unfortunately he does not
chose water, which would promote perspiration, but
devotes his attention to beer, which often acts rather
as an extra load on his safety-valve. The very best
drink that can be devised for men labouring in a hot
atmosphere is a simple infusion of oatmeal, to which
a little pure sulphuric acid has been added, for it
quenches the thirst, nourishes the body, and at the
same time protects the dririker against sunstroke.-

Turks getting out of the Way.-Six thousand Turk-.
ish troops embarked for Valona, Albania, on Tues-
day, on board three Austrian Lloyd's steamers, es-
corted by two Austrian frigates.
Francis Joseph Affected.-The Paris correspond-
'ent of the Times' learns from 'an unquestionable
source that the ,Emperor Francis Joseph is much
affected by the resistance offered to the Austrian
occupation of the Turkish provinces.' The resist-
ance does not come from the Mussulmans alone; re-
volutionary Panslavism is behind them, but not with
any hope of defeating the occupation, but to- keep
alive a disaffection which will attract the Bosnians
and Herzegovineseto Servia, the great focus of Pan-
slavist agitation.
Distrust of Servia.-The Servian government
earnestly declares that it is loyally adhering to its
conventions with Austria, but this declaration is
not implicitly believed at Vienna, where the feeling
of irritation against Servia is on the increase; hence
the report which prevailed last night, that an Aus-
trian corrs will be sent to watch Servia, with Or-
ders to advance into that country at the first sign
of bad faith.
Insurgent Divisions.-It is stated in Vienna that
differences have arisen among the insurgents at
Livno, Herzegovina, and at other points on the
frontier north of the River Narenta, causin-g the
breaking up of several bands, the chief of which
accompanied by Hadji Loja, are said to have fled
into Albania )
A Turco-Austrian Treaty.-The Vienna New Free
Press confirms the statement that the basis for an
arrangement between Austria and the Porte has al-
ready been agreed upon. The Press states that a
treaty will be signed at Serajevo, by General Phil-
lipovich and Mehemet Ali Pacha.
Prince Nopolean's Marriage.-Notwithstanding the
various contradictions of the intended marriage of
the Prince Imperial with Princess Thyra of Den-
mark, the Paris Cornstitutionnel reiterates the state-
ment that the marriage has been arranged, with the
consent of the King of Denmark, and insists upon-
the authenticity of its information,

The Great Gathering of the Fleet at Spithead-An
Imposing Display of War Ships of all classes.
LONDON, August 14.-The naval review at Spit-
head on Tuesday, which was expected to be a grand
affair and for which elaborate preparations had
been made, has been lamentably spoiled by the
weather, which was truly wretched. The day was
sharp and squally and the rain fell continuously
from noon till after midnight, obliterating the pic-
I turesque effect naturally expected from the grand
display in the Solent.
An imposing array.-The review was of the port
and starboard divisionsoof the home fleet under
Admiral Sir A. C. Key, K.C.B., F.R.S., recently
commanding the North American and West Indiani
,squadron. There were ten broadsides, armored and
unarmored; eight turreted vessels, including the
mighty Thunderer (9,190 tons displacement); sloops,
corvettes, gunboats and ten new torpedo craft.
Altogether the Fleet incldud 219 guns, carried on
99.549 tons displacement, propelled by 72,8351 horse
power and manned by 6,691 officers and crew.
Order of the Review.--Yet these twenty six ships
only represent odds and ends of the British naval
force grouped together for a particular service which
it is popularly supposed the Berlin Congress ren-
dered unnecessary. The fleet formed in two lines,
headed with the most powerful ships of their class,
and terminating with the smallest. On one side
-namely, the Port division-were the turreted
vessels, and on the Starboard the ironclads. The
vessels were in the following order :-
The Port Division.-Thunderer, Belleisle, Prince
Albert, Gorgon, Hydra, Hecate, Glatton, Cyclops,
Ready, Tweed, Tay, Vesuvius, Lightning.
The Starboard Division.-Hercules, Hector,, Va-
liant, Lord Warden, Warrior, Penelope, Resis-
tance, Boadicea, Emerald, Cormorant, Euryalus,
Blazer, Comet.
The turreted vessels were broadside on, the iron-
clads two-birds' broadside.
Arrival of the Queen -At half-past three a salute
fired by the fleet announced the departure of the
Queen from Osborne. A royal barge with sixteen
oars took her from the gates at Osborne-to the large
steam yacht Victoria and Albert, flying the royal
standard, and shortly afterward the Admiralty flag
on the masthead. The royal yacht steamed slowly
down, the Trinity House yacht piloting the way.
Then came the Enchantress with the Lords of the
Admiralty, and made vivid by the presence of the
foreign diplomatic corps.
In the -wake of royalty.-Other yachts followed
carrying naval flags, and towering above the rest
the white painted three-decker troopship Euphrates
having on board the members of the Lords and
Commons and their friends, and around her flocked
the excursion boats, getting as near to royalty as
The Programme changed.-The ships remained
stationary. The original programme was that they
should slip anchors and proceed in a single line, led
by the flagship Hercules, to the eastward, passing
round-the royal yacht and returning in the same
order to their original positions. After the Queen
had passed clear of the lines and was well to wind-
ward a furious cannonading, excepting from the big
guns, was begun from all the ships and kept up for
some time.
The Queen's Compliments.-During the smoke the
royal yacht stole back to the Isle of Wight. As
she passed the flagship Her Majesty signalled,
Much pleased. Regret extremely bad weather
prevented evolution." i
A Proud Boast.-The review embraced every type
of vessel at present in the British navy, from the
obsolete broadside Warrior, with her four and a
half inches of armor, to the monitor Devastation,
the swift, unarmored Boadicea, and the torpedo
boats. The London journals boast that this great
fleet is only a spare squadron of England's- navy.
England's fleet is distributed over all quarters of
the world.

LONDON, August 15, 1878.-Wurtemberg's and j
Tegethoff's divisions of Jovanovich's corps are ex-
pected to enter Serajevo on Thursday or Friday
next without opposition, the inhabitants having al-
ready given notice of their submission to the Aus-
trian occupation. ; -
A Defeat Explained.-General Szapary's check
before Tuzla was due to the numerical superiority
of the insurgeants. The Austrians spiked two of
their own guns and abandoned them. The engage-
ments with the insurgents were very obstinate.
LIjubinje Occupied.--It is reported from, Ragusa
that the Austrians have occupied Ljubinje, Herze-
govina. There are 5,000 insurgents at Plaudola,
south of Ljnbinje, and another body near Bilek.

YELLOW FEVERS'aC.UROE.-From all parts of th.
South accounts of the progress of this fearful disease
is most distressing, 700 cases and 194 deaths prior to
the 14th instant, occ',rred in New Orleans. At
Memphis, it has gained a sure footing and re-
sists all efforts to crush it.
Origin of the Disease-A demand for Nurses.-
MEMPHIS, Tenn., August 12.-From Grenada the
wires were burdened all this morning with des-
patches of the most sensational character. More
physicians and more nurses were wanted by the
city authorities, and the various benevolent lodges
of that place sent pleading despatches for assistance
of the same character. The crowd around the tele-
graph office, and the reading and repetition of des-
patches received by public and private individuals,
served to work up the people into a condition of
excitement amounting nearly to a panic.
A letter received by a citizen from a relative in
Grenada this morning gives the following very
plausible cause of the sudden outbreak of the fear-
ful malady in that place :-" The main sewer, which
leads entirely through that town to the river, caved
in a few days ago. In order torepair the damage
it was necessary to uncover the sewer for a long
distance, and an examination proved thatit was
filled with carcases of dead dogs, cats and rats.
The sun pouring its heated rays,otn these remains
filled the atmosphere with stench and disease, and
within the past week not less than seventy of the
citizens of Grenada have been attacked with the
The following was received at 1 o'clock this af-
ternoon from General W. J. Smith, one of the
members of the Howard Association, who went

ten deaths within the past twenty-four hours.

Thirty-two Lives Lost-Forty, Peopfe Wounded-
Great Destruction of Property. -' '- $ .i .
WALLINGFORD, Conn., Aug. 9.-A terrible tornado
passed over Wallingford about 6 o'clock- this .taning,
and blew over houses. uprooted trees, and causedl great
destruction to life and property. It is found that
thirty-two people were killed, and that piore& than
forty were wounded. The T,.legraph wires and poles
were blown down, so that it was .impossible to commu-
nicate directly with Ne*w-Haven, or Meriden or Hart-
ford. Word was finally sent by the 7 o'clock triin to
Hartford and Meriden. On the 7.30 o'clock. train
from Meriden seven physicians, the telegraph mana-
ger, and an Associated Press agent came down. Sys-
tematic measures were at once taken to gather together
and identify the dead and care for the wounded.
It was found that the tornado had: been confined to
a belt of territory about :alf a mile wide, and the
whole damage and loss of life had occurred on the
sand plains about a quarter of a mile north of the rail-
road station, near the line of the New 'Yoirk,' iTew-
Haven and Hartford Railroad. At 6 o'clock, while
the men were leaving the several factories in th9evici-
nity, it began to rain gently,'and in a very few minu-
tes the rain increased to .a perfect deluge, .while the
.lightning illuminated the darkened sky until'it was as
bright as day, and the thunder rolled with a coniinu--
ous and deafening roar. Without a second's warning,
a tornado of wind, accompanied with hail and rain,
swept across the northern part -of the town, Afrom
west to east, and everything moveable in its track was
carried away. It seemed to last only a momemi, but
its results wers frightful. Afterward a light rain fell,
but soon passed off, and at 8 o'clock, when 'the train
arrived with the help from Meriden, the sky was clear
and the moon shone brightly. By actual count, forty
dwelling-houses were demolished, and at least fifty
barns. Nearly all the dead were crushed by falling
The scene is a heart-rending one. J\Wooden houses
were carried distances ranging from a few feet to an
eighth of a mile. In the line of the tornado nothing
was left standing, and on each side of its track consid.
erable damage was done, chimneys especially suffering.
The Catholic church (wooden) and the new brick high
school were totally ruined.- The top of the brick fac-
tory of the Wallingford community was carried away.
'Fires were communicated to the ruins in many cases
by lamps and stoves:: and had it not been for the rain,
the horror of the affair would havq been, greatly in-
Young Matthew Mooney was standingonthe railihoad
track when struck by the full force ot the tornado.
He was pickud up, about fifty feet away, almost be-
headed. .Mrs. Huldy had her child in her arms when
struck, and when picked up both were dead and al-
most scalped. Frederick Lit tlewood was picked up
dead beside the road on which he was returning from
work, when killed by flying timbers.
Uptown four women, relatives, of John Munson,
were buried irn the cellarof a house which was blown
down. It was reported that-the lour were killed-; but
after a long time, all were rescued, two being .slightly
injured and the others unhurt.' While driving in a
buggy in the eastern part of the town, Michael Kelly
was blown some thirty feet. over a precipice. Both
man and horse were slightly injured.

OTTAWA TNDER MOB LAw.-.-There was consider-
able trouble at Ottawa on the 13th and following
day, occasioned by an Orange, or Young Briton"'
procession from Montreal, which inflamed the
rage of the Roman Catholics, and the result was
that many persons were wounded by pistol shots
fired by both parties. The advice of the Mayor
and other prominent persons had but little effect.
A train conveying the Orange young men back to
Montreal was fired into and the passengers had a
narrow escape from injury. At midnight of the
14th the Foot Guards paraded in full strength at
their armory under Colonel Ross. The streets were
deserted-everything quiet.

Francis G. Green, of No. 35 Dey-st., one of the
largest dealers in iron pipes in this city has become
embarrassed, and has asked an extension of twelve
months from his creditors. He is a director in the
Keeley Motor Company, and is so sanguine of its suc-
cess that he expects to be able to pay the creditors in
full by the money received from it. His liabilities
amount to $114,000, and his real assets, consisting
of stock, machinery, fixtures and book accounts are
valued at $14,000. At a meeting of the creditors it
was agreed to grant the extension and to allow him
$3,000 out of the assets, and one year to cde'velop
and perfect the Keeley Motor. The remainder of
the assets is to be placedin the hands of Messrs. Ben-
ton and Faulkner, his manager and bookkeeper,, as
trustees, to be converted into cash for the Qreditore.

SMr. Grattan Geary, editor of the Times in India,
has just arrived in Paris from Bombay, after a big
ride through the Sultan's Asiatic dominion, which
even in these days is something to talk of. Mr.
Geary, having occasion to visit Europe, thought he
might as well take Asiatic Turkey on his way,
although to do it he had to travel on horseback for

. over a' thousand miles through a wildish country.
The- rest of the journey was done by boat. He
left Bombay in March for the Persian Gulf, looking
in at Muscat, where British inthfence keeps a very
well-meaning prince on the throne against a dozen
compeditors. At Bussorah he landed on Turkish
soil, went thence to Bagdad by river, and then began
his great ride, after having made a short excursion
to Babylon, where he found a native speculator
busily digging up the remains of ancient palaces to
sell as old bricks. Sir Henry Layard was duly
informed of this when Mr. Geary passed through
Constantinople, and ho promised to put a stop to it
at once. From Bagdad Mr. Geary touched at
.Mosul, and then struck the line of retreat of the Ten
Thousand, Low infested by many Kurds of the wilder
sort. Towards the end of his journey Mr., Geary
had to do a hundred miles in the saddle without
rest to catch the Messageries steamer at Alexan-
drette. It is an adventure as plucky as it is novel;
and of course the immense amount of information
picked up on the way as to the state of our next
nurseling of dominion, Asiatic Turkey, is to make
the forthcoming "book of the season."

Dr. Muller, chief physician of the Prussian gen-
eral staff, who recently went to Jar an to organize a
military academy, has desecrated with shoe leather
the floor of the Mikado's palace at Tokio. When
the hour came for his presentation to the Mikado
be clothed himself in full uniform. The court (ffi-
*ials informed him that he could not be permitted
to enter the awful presence unless he complied with
Japanese usage and pulled off his boots. Dr. Mul-
ler refused to comply, but hit opon the ingenious
notion of casting all the responsibility on the Em-
peer Wilhelm. "My master the German Kaiser,"
said he, "commanded me to present myself before
the august Emperor of Japan in full Prussian uni-
form. Now, the boots constitute an important part
of the uniform, and I dare not appear as his repre-
sentative without these accessories." The Cham-
berlain went to the Mikado with this explanation,
aid the result was that Dr. Muller marched into
the audience chamber in his boots,



(From the London Vanity Fair.)
One hundred and twenty years ago a family of
Jewish traders, so proud of its race that it had taken
the name of D'Israeli, and which had long lived in
Venice, turned its eyes to England. Benjamin
Disraeli so successfully traded and amassed money
that Isaac, his son, was able to devote himself ex-
clusively to literature and to the production of Ben-
jamin Disraeli, the younger, the portent and won-
der of his time. Baptized in Holborn, through the
careful foresight of his father, the boy became the
first titular Christian of his family; and he had
scarcely left school when, finding the world before
him and in himself a great contempt for it, he
formed the resolution to be somebody. He had all
the qualities that command success-a great con-
tempt for the dull English, among whom, as though
by Providential dispensation, his life had fallen.
wonderful talents, a grand confidence in himself, and
no prejudices. As a youth he was placed in an At-
torney's Office, wrote pamphlets and novels, dressed
in splendid fashion, was by turns biting and viru-
lent, caressing and adulatory, a coxcomb bedizened
with chains and jewelry, and a statesman laying
down the principles of the Constitution, so that
those who knew him, while they wondered at his
brilliancy, smiled at the insane ambition that seemed
to possess him. At twenty-one he had published
Vivian Grey," at twenty-six he produced Con-
tarini Fleming," after which he went on travel in
the East, to bathe himself afresh in the source of
his race, and to come home with yet more gorgeous
dreams of future splendor for himself. At twenty-
seven he essayed practical politics, and gained
fresh confidence from being twice defeated at the
borough of High Wycombe, which he held to be an
appanage of his family. At twenty-eight he is-
sued an address to the electors of Marylebone,
which came to nothing through the accident of
there being no vacancy and therefore no election.
All this time he was held for a Radical, for he had
proclaimed himself, an advocate of triennial parlia-
ments and vote by ballot, and had been godfathered
by O'Connell and Hume, yet he did not so much
love subversive principles as he hated the
Whig families, who from the glorious revolution
had stood between low-born capacity and title,
honor and power. Now it was that he published
his celebrated Revoluntionary Epic," and he had
scarcely done so when at thirty he appeared for the
first time as a reliable Conservative only to be once
more beaten at the borough of Taunton. But his
novitiate was over. At thirty-two he was elected
member of Parliament for Maidstone, Kent, and now
his foot was on the rung of that ladder which leads
to fame and fortune. That it should lead him to
anything seemed impossible. The son of a privi-
leged race" for which he was despised, scarcely ad-
mitted to be an Englishman, poor, landless, in debt
and in difficulties, the squires and families who
then ruled in England looked upon him as an in-
credible joke, probably invented by a sympathetic
Providence, for their after-dinner pastime. The
"Jew boy" was deemed scarcely entitled to such
attention as a country gentleman might bestow on
the larger bubbles of the air. His maiden speech
delivered on the 7th of December, 1837, was con-
temptuously hooted down; yet, then it was, when
confronted by an almost impassible barrier of pre-
judice that he said, "I am not surprised at the re-
ception I have received. I have several times begun
many things, and I have often succeeded at last.
Aye, sir, and though I sit down now, the time will
come when you will hear me." In ten years thence
he was member for a county and Chancellor of the
Exchequer. To the surprise of all men he was
found quick in debate, fertile in resource, a very
master of biting sarcasm, and an inventor un-
matched of stinging and sticking epigrams. Still,
nobody believed in him as a serious personage, and,
even in 1868, when he became Prime Minister,
there arose a universal shout of wonder and admir-
ation that such a thing should be. But the thing
continued, the man grew till all onlookers marvelled
to see how he dwarfed all his compeers, and when,
in 1874, he again became Premier, a spirit of toler-
ation for him had arisen, which finally developed
into admiration, when, in 1876, he was created Earl
of Beaconsfield, and which changed almost to adora-
tion when he nominated himself to be the junior
ambassador of England. Lord Beaconsfield repre-
sents not only the power of personal talents in a
country where talent is more rare than principle
and scruple, but also the tardy recognition by that
country of the necessity of employing persons of
talent at any price and rewarding them with every
honor. Personally he is most charming, sympath-
etic and playful. Married in 1839, he lived with
his wife for over thirty years, created her Viscount-
ess Beaconsfield, and inherited from her the title he
had borrowed from Burke. He has imposed him-
self upon the rulers of England, and though to this
day he is secretly reviled by many of them, they
cannot shake off the yoke he has so delicately placed
upon their necks. Agile and contemptuous, yet
wearing, if need be, the air of the most stolid' and
prejudiced of the race he rules; conscious of power
and daring in its exercise, yet even more daringly
generous when occasion arises; showing himself
well read among a people that knows no books, cyn-
ical and smoking to those who never rise above the
level of earnestness or reach the level of a joke-he
has laughed at their ignorance, used their credulity,
played with their weakness, and produced Benjamin
Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield. He made his repu-
tation by heading the high-principles against Peel,
because Peel had abandoned his flag, and he has
himself ever since habitually stolen the colors of the

enemy, and led his followers to victory under the
ensigns of their opponents. As a speaker, there is
no man makes a greater effect. With apparent
hesitation and simulated indecision, he distils words
which bite into the enemy's soul like a corrosive
acid. He always displays audacity, but he lacks
courage and despises constancy. His conduct has
been condemned, his principles have more often
been doubted, his capacity has been denied, and his
statesmanship derided; but, if in his youth he pro-
voked wonder and contempt, in his riper age he
never fails to excite amazement and to inspire fear
where he fails to extort respect.

A new yacht, built by a Yankee, has recently
astonished some British yachtsmen. It is called
the Duplex. A nautical authority says that one
day last week, "during one of the matches," it
flashed by several 10 tonners and left them miles
behind, without spreading half her canvas. It has
two 33-foot canoe-shaped hulls, 12 feet apart, with
centre-boards, and connected by bolts, ties and
braces, over which is an oval-shaped flat deck.
The mast is comparatively small, as is also the
mainsail or boom foresail. In tolerably quiet
water her speed is over 15 miles an hour. The
author of this new craft threatens to give the Gov-
ernment a new torpedo-boat that will do 30 miles
an hour.

The "father" of the English Army is Genl. L. A.
During, who entered the service in November,
1793, and wears the Peninsular medal with seven
clasps. Lieutenant David Scott also lives, who
served with Abercrombie in Egypt, and was present
at the capture of Martinique and at Albuera. 88
other Peninsular" officers still survive. General
Henry Thomson, who has just died at the age of 99,
was the last survivor of the Indian battle of Les-
waree, November 1, 1803; one survivor of Assaye
lives, Lieut. Francis Olanville.

CAPE TowN, June 25.-There has been no fighting
reported from any part of the colony except on the
North Border during the past week. The principal
news from the frontier is that Gangelize and Komqula,
the sons of Seyols, were both wounded in the same
battle in which their father was killed, and that the
tribe is completely broken up. The Komas people
have also been disarmed. The question of granting
an amnesty to all but the leaders in the recent rebel-
lion is being earnestly discussed by the press. The
Mercury, a paper which was one of the earliest to
warn the Government of the colony of approaching
troubles, is strongly in favor of such a proclamation,
and expresses an opinion that the longer it is delayed
the greater opportunities we arregiving Edmund -an-
dilli and Mantanzienna (who has not yet come in as
was expected) to rally men around them. The East-
ern Province Herald and other influential papers agree
with the Premier that the operations should not be in
any way be suspended until the chiefs are in our hands.
No one appears to know where Kreli is. The King
William's Town Watchman says he was killed at
the battle of Gainland, while the Mercury says he was

fighting, which lasted from early morning until dark,
resulted in the defeat of the rebels and the clearing of
the Kloof. Thirty natives were killed, and a number
of women and children, as well as some sheep and
I cattle, were captured. Corporal Muller, of the Dia-

casualty on our side. Inspector Nesbitt, while re-
connoitering on the 19th, was wounded in the side,
but not dangerously. Considerable alarm is felt in
Kimberley at the condition of native affairs in that
r district. In addition to the disaffection already ex-
isting, Prieska, VMora and Gasibone are giving much
trouble. The latter has refused to obey an order to
deliver up some stolen cattle.
The European settlement at Karmuan is menaced
by Mora, and its relief is being pressed on the Gov-
ernment. It having been stated that some of the
forces of Prieska had shot Kafflis when they were
crying for mercy, Major Lanyon was telegraphed to
for particulars, and in his reply denied the accusation,
and further expressed his belief that the cause of the
outbreak was intimately connected with our own dis-
turbances, that sofie of the principal instigators were
Kaffirs, and that Waterboer was gravely implicated.
The volunteer killed in the first skirmish at Fort
Mamel Aki, May 29, was named Oliver. The Kaffirs
engaged in these skirmishes spoke Zulu, and are be-

The Transvaal Argus publishes letters from a cor-
respondent who has visited the disputed territory and
examined the military kraals built by the order of
Cetywayo. He describes the Kaffirs as very violent,
and in the habit of making raids upon the neighbour-
ing farm-houses, appropriating anything they can lay
their hands upon.
Gen. Thesiger, who is expected in Cape Town by
the next steamer from East London, will, after a short
stay here, probably proceed to the Transvaal.
Capt. Carrington, at the head of the Diamond Field

',The war expenses up to June 30 are expected to
reach 750,000, and this is to be covered by a tax of
1,000,000. The budget has been generally favour-
ably received, but the brandy tax will meet with con-
g siderable opposition from the western members, in
whose districts it is principally manufactured.
The Government Defence Bills have all been read

From the London Standard, July 19.
The most interesting conflict between the late and
the present Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
last night was one respecting a matter of fact.
Lord Derby amazed the House by stating that bias
real cause for quitting the Cabinet was a resolution
it had come to to seize the Island of Cyprus and a
I position on the coast of Syria by a secret expedition.
The improbability of the statement was surprising
in itself, but not so astounding as that, even had it
been true, Lord Derby should have made it We
have no hesitation in saying that this is the second
time Lord Derby has shown himself to be little
qualified to sit in any Cabinet, and, no Minister could
be blamed who, in future, hesitated to accept him as
I a colleague. There are traditions of loyalty which
Lord Derby does not observe, and apparently does
not respect. But Lord Salisbury, after consulting
with the leading members of the Cabinet, gave a

flat contradiction to Lord Derby's statement. It is
to be regretted that after Lord Salisbury had
promptly and handsomely substituted the word in-
1 correct" for a less circuitous phrase;, incautiously
employed, Lord Granville should have persisted in
dwelling upon a mere slip of the tongue, which no
fairly-minded person could have construed as inten.
tionally meant to offend. But the important point
is thatLord Salisbury was able to contradict his pre.
decessor without hesitation, and with the assent of
his colleagues, and we do not think that Lord Derby's
reiteration of the accuracy of his assertion will alter
men's convictions. He has committed two mistakes,
. one of memory, comparatively unimportant; one of
judgment, of the gravest character. After this en-
livening but somewhat painful incident, interest in
the more practical issues of the debate grew slacker,
and when Lord Kiinberley sat down, and Lord
Cranbrook had spoken with his usual force, it was
felt that the discussion was in pretty much the posi-
tion in which Lord Beaconsfield's opening speech
had leftit. To conduct a great policy, on the whole,
with success, has been the task of the Government.
To pick holes in the performance is now the occupa.
tion of the Opposition. They are to be commended
for not shrinking from it. But apparently it will
bring them little party advantage ; nor will the mind'
of the nation be dislodged from its reasonable sense
of obligation to the Government by the most ingen-
ious cavils.

Minnie Warren, the youngest and prettiest of Bar-
num's dwarfs, died on Tuesday evening in childbed.
She was the youngest of a family of eight children,
all of whom except herself and her sister Lavinia, now
Mrs. Tom Thumb, were of ordinary size. When
Minnie was 11 years of age she joined the Tom
Thumb troupe, and for fifteen years she travelled
almost continually, visiting nearly all the civilized

parts of the globe. She was 40 inches in l.iglht, an]l
never attained a weight to exceed 45 pounds, being
consid& rably shorter and more slender than Mrs.
-Thumb. She was 27 years of age at the time of her
death. To a pretty face she added a pleasant dispo-
sition and winning ways, and became the fast favorite
of Mr. Barnum as well as of the public. When Tom
Thumb was married to Lavinia Warren the general
opinion was that Commodore Nutt would take Min.
mnie for his bride; but the little Commodore had set
his affections on Lavinia, and his little heart was
blighted when Gen. Thumb won her from him.
"Never mind, Commodore," the jovial Barnum said,
"!Minnie Warren is a better match for you. She
is younger than you, while Lavinia is several years
older." "Thank you, sir," the Commodore said,
stiffly, I would not marry the best women living.
I don't believe in women anyway."
Time lessened Commodore Nutt's grief, and he
partly renewed his attentions to Miss Minnie. But
after his first disappointment, it is said he became a
fast young man, and Minnie, like a wise young lady
discouraged his addresses. -A, few years ago Barnum
found another lilliputian, Major Newell, who was
rechristened Gen. Grant, Jr., and added to the Tom
Thumb combination. The Major and Minnie became
great friends. About a year ago they were married,
and lived happily together with Gen. Thumb and
wife in Middleboro.
When Barnum was in the city recently he let out
the secret, which had been closely kept by Minnie's
family, but the memory of the spurious Thumb baby
led many to regard the story as a Barnum hoax.
But the New Haven women soon discovered ithe pur-
chase of little bits of muslin lace and flannel by mem-
bers of the Warren household, and secrecy became
impossible. A lady friend who visited the Warrens
described the little garment as too comical for any-
thing." Dolls' patterns were used, and the little
slips and wrappers were made one-sixth of the size of
garments for ordinary babies.
Mrs. Newell as described as looking forward-to ma-
ternity with great anticipations of happiness and no
misgivings. Her husband, however had gloomy fore-
bodings and expressed the greatest solicitude. Her
death was a great shock to her family. The child
died at birth. It weighed five pounds and ten ounces.
Four hours later the mother died from exhaustion.
Mrs. Newell's death caused deep sorrow in Middle-
boro. Much sympathy is expressed for Major Newell,
who is overwhelmed with grief.
Major and Mrs. Newell were the smallest wedded
pair that ever lived. One smaller is mentioned by
Marco Polo in his travels in Tartary. They were
each 25 years of age, and twelve and eleven inches in
height, respectively. They married by order of the
Khan, and their fourth son was six feet two inches in
height. There are some doubts as to the correctness
of Polo's figures.
Gen. Tom Thumb and wife have grown corpulent,
and neither appears so diminutive as in their younger
days. The General has been wealthy, but has lived
extravagantly and spent a fortune in yachting anwl
other sports, and possesses only a moderate compe.
tence. He is 41 years of age.
