Captain Hutchings,, of the Schooner Ahnie Florence,
who arrived on 'Friday last from Barbados, reports left
Barbados oil Saturday the 14th ultimo, with 'a fresh
S.W. breeze, which, by Sunday had increased to a
heavy gale,, with a tremendous heavy sea, from same
quarter, and an awful looking sky. Barometer fell to
29"65. The wind cronfire'd unabated till the non of
Monday; Tint the heavy sea kept up till the morning of
Thursday thie 19th, when'-iwe hl heavy rain, with
thunder ;nd lightning; which cleared the weather.-
Captain Ilutchliins is of opinion that this gale was
very severe 'at Barbados. Captain H. also reports,
that on Tlursday the 26th, at 3 p.m., then in lat. 30.50,
long. t'o6S*, sightedd -what he took for a boat under
sail, but on riunidnon dqwn to it, lound it to be a vessel's
mast (supowecd to be a Barque's mizen), floating almost
,'rp 1 ii.triilarly,; about 12 feet of it out of water. Ran
close by it but could- see nothing that kept it in that
position! It seemed to have been in that condition but
a. hort ~41inm, as it.was perfectly clean, though there
were lots 6f dolphins around it. Made Gibbs *Hill
Light at 12 same night.


The Bri,-t. Fh't,'i, Capt. Braybrooke, in 12 dvys
from.Turks' Islands bound to Newport, R. I., with a,
load of ,,t Ecuaii,, called at these Islands on Wednes-8

The .Spanish war steamer Pizarro, Commander
Don Olimpio Aguado, whi.-h left St. George's on

the wreck by the Italian Barque Cario Frugoni and
landed at the Delaware Breakwater on the 20th.


On Friday and Saturday evenings the Ireland,
islandd Amateur Dramatic Club gave entertainments
it the Theatre in the Spar Yard, which afforded
great pleasure to the large audiences assembled.
The acting in both pieces was good and showed
hat the characters had been well cast. In fact
there was such a general uniformity of talent dis-
layed by the entire' company that it would be in-
idious to particularize any individual actor. The
Songs and Recitations given by Gregory (to whom
great credit is also due for his admirable general
management) were extremely good.
There is 'one thing very much to be regretted,
the frequent use of the word "damned," which,
however polite an adjective it may be considered.
amongst the very lowest classes of society, and
however expressive its use may ,be deemed by the
extreme vulgar, has altogether passed away from
the language of those classes who form the audi-
eneos in such a theatre as that in the Spar Yard,
.ud could be easily exchanged, without weakening
the drama, for some synonym which would equally
express the author's meaning. without being an
offence to good taste.
The general merit of these performances leads to
a hope that the Ireland Island Amateur Dramatic
Club will develop their evidently considerable ta-
lent and on many future occasions fill the little
theatre in the Splir Yard with as large and as ap-
preciative audiences as those of Friday and Satur-
day last.

A Meeting of the Parishioners of Pembroke Parish,
is to take place at the Town Hall. Hamilton, to-mor-
row, Wednesday, the 2nd instant, at 11 o'clock in the
forenoon, for the purpose of drawing Jurors, to serve at
the ensuing Term of the Court of General Assize.-',

CRICKET.-Weather permitting, a Cricket Match
will be played at Prospect on Thursday next, the 3rd
instant, between the Royal Engineers and 46th Regi-
ment.
The Band of the 46th Regiment will play during the

A very unusual and severe swell of the sea oc-
curred on the North side of these Islands on Satur-
day last, and on Sunday morning the tide rose to a
height unprecedented for the last twenty years;
certain, indications of a storm in the neighborhood.
On Sunday evening we had much thunder and
lightning and quite a deluge of rain which lasted
for several hours, the wind easterly.


,The 82nd Reginmenut (Prince of Wales's Volun- '
teters) will, it is rumored, relieve the 46th in these
Ia un ,- towards the close of the 1)present year, replac-
iucr the 19th at St. Gworge's, whi'h latter corps-
will be brought up to Prospect.
Lieuts. A. H..Dumaresq and H.W. Garden, 46th .

ner recently given at the famous Ship Hotel, Green-
wich, by Mr. R. G. W. Herbert, the Permanent
Under Secretary for the Colonies.

The contract for the West India Mails from
England for conveyance by one system, has been
awarded to the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company.
As all the papers in connection with the contract
were not ready to lay on th.:-tble of the House of
Commons before the late prorogation, the contract
-nous.:-quently will have to remain for confirmation
till next session.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-Who can question the right of the Assistant
Judges of the Court of General Assize to a reasonable
per centage of the salary of the Chief Justice for per-
forming the duties of that high and important office
during the absence of the Chief Judge from the Island.
or during a vacancy in that office P it is a rule in
the civil service that the stipend of an absent officer
must be lessened to a certain extent to compensate the,
person who does the work of the office for the time
being. That the work of one whole term was per-
formed by the Assistant Justices is patent to everyone,
and performed, too, to the entire satisfaction of the
whole people. Yours, JUSTICE.

ENGTLANDFS NW TROUBLE.

THE SITUATION ALONG THE AFGHANIS-
TAN FRONTIER.
LONDON, Sep. 25.--A dispatch to Reuter's Tele-
gram Company from Simla confirms the report of
the concentration of troops on the Afghan frontier
of the dissolution ofihe British Mission, and of the
departure of General Sir Neville Chamberlain for
Madras. The dispatch also says: "IGholam Hus-
sein Khan, who went to, Cabul with the Viceroy's
letter has been recalled. A force under General
Roberts has been dispatched to Kooram Valley.
A column, numbering 6,000 men, has been ordered
to-assemble at Mooltan, and 8,000 men will go to
Quetta. Active military preparations are making'
at Rawul Pindee."
MANCHESTER, Sept. 25.-A special dispatch to
the Guardian from London says: It is reported
in political quarters that Lord Cranbrook has been
summoned from Baltimore and Lord Salisbury
from Dieppe to meet Lord Beaconsfield and decide
on the response to be, given to the request of the
Indian Government for permission to send an ulti-
matum to Shere Ali. Lord Beaconsfield was in
town all yesterday engaged in active correspond-
ence."/ I
LoNDON, Sept. 2G.--A dispatch from St. Peters-
burg to the Daily 'eil's says Russia will probably
not interfere in a war between the Ameer of Cabul
and England. r
EDINBURGH, Sept. 25.-The London correspon-
dent of the Edinburgh Scotsmaaannounces that it
has been decided not- to be necessirv to hold a
special meet(nc of the Cabinet on the Afghar affair.
The Indian authorities will be allowed to act in ac-.
cordance with previous instructions.
LONDON, Sept. 26.-A dispatch to the Times from
Calcutta says when the British Mission was refused
passage, the commandant of Alimusjid told Major
Cavagnari that but for personal 'friendship he would
shoot him on the spot. War is believed to be
inevitable.
If it be true that the commandant of Alimusjid
in the presence of one of the Ameer's most trusted
servants, threatened to shoot Cavagnari, there can
be but little doubt the t'breat was in accordance
with.the direct instructions from the Ameer.
The Times, in its leading editorial says: This
latest news leaves little drubl) that we must expect
war. Operations, in fact, have been commenced
already. The Ameer doubtleqi intended to make
the breech with England irreparable. Such will be
the effect of his conduct. We ought to be well
able to succeed in occupying two.or three impor-
tant points in AfglhM0Iatan before the winter, which
will go a long way toward finishing the war. We
can continue it in the spring if the Ameer is still
obdurate. The blow, when given, must be effective.
Even the Daily e'ps favors prompt and vigor-
ous action.
Prince Eismarck has gone to Vatzin.
The race for the. Great Eastern Handicap at
Newmarket Tuesday :was won by Hackthorpe.
Warrior was second and MiNlay third.
A special dispatch' to the Manchester Guardian
from Constantinople ,ays : "The British- fleet will
leave Ih ? Princes' I lands for Artaki on Saturday
next at the latest, and possibly earlier."
The ironclad Northampton is being put in read-"
iness for the conveyance of the Marquis of Lorne
to-Canada.
The eruption of Mounlt Vesuvius is increasing.
The lava is streaming down the sides of the moun-
tain.

The United States Coast Survey steamer Blake
which returned some weeks ago from dredging
operations in the Gulf of Mexico, is now refiling
for another expedition in November. Captain Pat-
terson, of the Coast Survey, we learn from the Tri-
bune, says that the extensive and accurate soundings
of the Gulf, taken by impl)roved scientific methods
in the recent expedition, do not tend to confirm the
belief, long held, that the equatorial current, after
rushing from the Caribbean Sea through the chan-
nel formed by the West India Islands and the
northward projection of Yucatan, makes the whole
tortuous circuit of the Gulf close by the shores of
Central America, Mexico, and the southern coast
of the United States, before emerging into the At-
lantic between the point of Florida and the Baha-
mas. The observations tend rather to prove that
the force of the incoming equatorial stream expends
itself in one direction against the mass of the Gulf


long before it reaches the Texan coast, and then
turns directly toward and reissues into the ocean.
The Law Lords have confirmed the decision of
the Lords Justices, that. the vendors of the Island
of Sombrero, in the West Indies, to the New Som-
brero Phosphate Company (Limited), did not make
full discovery of material facts which they were
bound to discover; and particularly on selling it
for .110,000 they. concealed the fact that they
bought the island and property for 55,000.
QUEEN ELIZABETil AND CYPRUS.-It is of some
interest to know that Queen Elizabeth once claimed
the sovereignty of Cyprus. This has recently been
brought to light by the discovery that the coat of
arms of the island is incorporated with the arms of
that Queen on her monument in Westminster Ab-
bey. History tells us that she contested the usurp-
ation of the Turks when they took the island from
the Venetians in the, war of 1570-1573. It would
be interesting to discover on what grounds she
based her title as potentate of the territory-pro-
bably on the conquest of the island by Richard I.
Visitors to the north aisle of the chapel of King
Henry VII. will seen on the Queen's tomb a paper
indicating where the arms of Cyprus may be found.
The frieze at tha west end of the tomb has five
shields, of which that in the' middle contains the'
quartering of Cyprus. The right of the Queen to
the title of Que,.n of Cyprus was recognized and
legalized by the Collegeiol Heralds of that day, at
the head ot which college were Sir William Dethick
as Garteri and W\illiam Camden as Clarencieux
King at Arms, under whose skill and taste were
executed the forty-one bhitlds of arms so beautifully
carved by Maximitian Poutram, who was employed
by King James I. to make, the tomb. This inter-
esting discovery, is due to the industry and anti-
quarian research of Mr. Henry Poole, the Master
Mason of the Abbey.
The rumored match between the ex-Prince Im-
perial of France and the Princess Thyra of Den-
mark seems to be exploded. It probably had no


other origin than the Prijnce's visit to Denmark. Be-
sides being politically a mistake, on the Princess's
side, such an alliance would have been an ill assort-
ed one. The Prince is not much over 22, and looks
much younger, while the Princess is verging on 25,
and looks even older. The lot of marriageable prin.
cessess in Europe at the present moment is rather
hard. Leaving out of the question the Prince Im-
perial, who has sunk to the rank of a mere pretend-
er-though no doubt a wealthy one, with his $500,-
000 a year, thanks to the foresight of the Empress
in investing enormous sums of money in English se-
curities, while as yet the empire existed-there is
only the King of Spain who may be considered eligi-
ble, and he perhaps, will not speedly forget Mercedes.
At last good news comes from the famine districts
in China. Rain has fallen in sufficient quantities'to
hold out a promise of fair autumnal crops. All that
is now immediately required, therefore, is to find sup-
port for the sufferers until the grain is once more
gathered in. But the more 'important question of
how can such visitations be avoided for the future
still remains for the consideration of the Chinese
Government. During the last dynasty-friom 1368
to 1628-the provinces now suffering from drought
were visited by similar periods of famine forty times.
That the extreme verge of misery was sometimes
reached may be gathered from the ominous state-
ment appended to the account of te of ten of them that
"men eat each other." The, records of the present
dynasty are not yet available, but there is no reason
to suppose that the droughts have, under the Man-,;
choo rule, been less frequent than formerly.
Prof. Reuleaux has drawn attention, in a lecture
delivered at Leipzig, to the paper employed in pub-
lic offices. He states that it consists almost entire-
ly of wood, and that in the course of ten or fifteen
years we may anticipate the destruction from natur-
al;causes of important official records written upon
such paper.


THE TEA PLANT.--Thea Chinesia.-There has
been brought to our office a plant said to be the Tea
Plant of China, which is Lgrowing uncultivated but
most luxuriafitly in Smiths Parish. We have be-
fore heard that a plant resembling in every parti-
cular the tea plant, was to be found growing wild
in the neighborhood of the Flatts Village; we are
now assured that a person who is familiar with the
plant in China, and;who is now residing among us,
declares it to be identical in every particular. We
would like to see some of the leaves gathered and
preserved by an expert.

Capt. Ingham of the Maria, and Capt. Hutchings
of the Annie Florence, will please accept our thanks i
for late Demerara papers.

Proceedings of the IlonoraL'"e i4,'
islative Council.
Tuesday, 24thSeptember, 1878.-Pursuant; io ad-
journment the House met.
Present-His Honor Josiah Rees, Chief Justib",
President,
The Honorable William H. Gosling,
S" James H. Trimingham,
Eugenius Harvey,
< Joseph H. Harvey,
James Tucker, Recr. Genl.,
i. Randal E. Webster, Colonial
Secretary.
The following Message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by the Colonial Secre-
tary:- .
(No. 27.)
R.- M. LAFFAN,
SMajor-General,
Governor and Ceommander-in Chief.
The Governor' has the honor to acquaint the
Honorable the Legislative'Council that he has been
informed by the Receiver General that there re-
mains now in the Tieasuy a sum of 262 6/5 un-
drawn of the salary attached. to the office of Chief
Justice of this Colony, being the proportion of that
salary corresponding to the period between the date
of the late Chief Justice's resignation and that of
the accession to office of His Honor the present
Chief Justice, during which the appointment of
Chief Justice in these IMlands remained vacant.
It has been brought to the notice of the Governor
however that there are some claims arising out of
the prolonged vacancy of the appointment which
should be taken into consideration and equitably
dealt with before the amount thus left undrawn is
treated as a saving.
It has been represented to the Governor that an
extraordinary amount of additional labour, respon-
sibilily and anxiety was cast upon the two Assist-
ant Judges of the Court of General Assize, by the
want of a Chief Justice to preside over that Court
during the Michaelmas Term of 1877, and it seems
,evident that the task undertaken by the two Assist-
ant Judges must hve been rendered far more on.'r-
ous, and must have been attended with a far deeper
anxiety from their no longer having the legal know-
ledge and expcr'ence and the practical judgment of
a.Chief Justice to assist them in arriving at correct
conclusions: yet not wilhitanding these difficult cir-
cumstances the two Assistant Judges-the Honor-
able James Harvey Triminghain and the Honorable
Eugenius Harvey- carried through the business of
the Michaelmas Term of the Court of General As-
size most aatisfactorily-sitting, as the Governor is
Informed, for 144days each, and judging 20 prison-
ers on criminal charges, besides two civil suits.
The Governor thinks it would be a becoming act
on the.art of the Legislature to mark its sense of
the important service thus rendered to the Colony
by.the two Assistant Judges by passing a Resolve
granting those gentlemen a reasonable remuneration
for the!irextra labour. A moderate portion of the
sum of 262 61.5 saved, to the Colony by the ab-
sence of a Chief Justice might, the Governor thinks,
with great propriety be appropriated to remunerate
the twq'Assistant Judges for the extraordinary ex-
ertions they were called upon to make, to save this
Colony from the grave inconveniences which would
haUve followed any further postponement of the sit-
tings of the Court of General Assize.
The Goverpot has also received a letter from His
Honor Chief Justice Rees stating that when His
Honor was appointed Chief Justice of this Colony
by Lard Cornarvon, His Lordship expressed his
anxiety that His Honor should comeout to Ber-
muda as quickly as possible, as great inconvenience
had already been occasioned to the Colony by the
absence of a Chief Justice,-and that under these
circumstances His Honor had thought it due to the
Colony to come out here as quickly as possible, and
had been put to great expense in doing so-and the
letter adds, that considering the very limited salary
granted to him in respect of his office His Honor
trusts the Govoernor will take some step to pro-
vide for the repayment of the money thus expended,
-which His Honor estimates at about 90.
In submitting this claim for the consideration of
the Legislature, the Governor thinks it desirable to
point out that-under ordinary circumstances a Chief
Justice appoifited to this Colony from England and
allowed full time to settle his affairs in that country
and make the most judicious arrangements for pro-
viding hiniself with an outfit, and for coming out
here would not be entitled to the repayment of any
portion oi his travelling expenses: but the Gover-
nor thinks that the special circumstances stated by
Chief Justice Rees would justify the Legislature in
making an exception in His Honor's case, as it
must be self evident that no one and especially no
one encumbered wiLthi a family can make a perman-
ent move from one country to another in a very
hurried manner without suffering some losses and
incurring some increased expenses which might
have been avoided had there been time to make
sufficient preliminary arrangements;-and the Gov-
ernor trusts tberefcre the Legislature will devote a
modeerate portion of the sum r l o262 6s 5d. which
has been saved by hibe vacancy ol the office to meet-
ing the claim now advanced by His Honor the
Chlief Justice.

THE CLIMATE OF CANADA.
It must be borne in mind that Canada, like Eu-
rope, extends over so many degrees of latitude that
it must have many gradations of climate. In some
parts of Canada fruits ripen in the open air that can-
not successfully grow in England in any quantity ex-
cept under glass. In one locality every farmer en.
joys the luxury of a large peach orchard, while far
to the north the flora and fauna are those of Lapland,
and still farther north icebergs are the perennial
crop. The alpine region bordering the Pacific, as in
Southern Europe, presents lofty peaks reaching the
permanent snow-line, while at lower levels, in the
vicinity of the ocean, a climate mild and soft as Ire-
land prevails.
In the greater part of Canada, however, the
thermometer has a wide range. In summer the
temperature runs high ; in winter it occasionally is
very low. It is difficult to understand how one can
live and enjoy life in a temperature sometimes many
degrees below zero; but owing to the extreme dry.
ness of the atmosphere, the cold is not really felt so
much as might be imagined. Ordinary work is car-
ried on in the open air without inconvenience in
what would seem to one accustomed to a moist cli-
mate very great degrees of cold. Ploughing, as a
rule, is never.done; the land lies completely dormant
during the winter months; but various other kinds
of work are performed. The construction of the
public works, such as canals and railways, goes on,
and in this portion of the year thousands of men pro-
ceed to the pine forests to cut logs for exportation
and for the local saw-mills. As a further illustra-
tion of what can be done in a climate which, when
mere temperature is considered, would seem an un-
endurable one, it may be mentioned that the explor-
ations for the Pacific Railway have been carried on
in winter as well as summer for several consecutive
years,
The climate of Canada admits of exposure, with
proper precautions, which would be thought inad-
missable in many other countries. The Pacific
Railway staff were engaged in explorations thou-
sands of miles 4rom ordinary human habitations,
and had only canvas for shelter winter and
summer. Many men for two consecutive years
have been continuously in the field, and during that
period have had no roof other than the tent over
them. And these men were not, as might be sup-
posed, the hardy Orkneyman or Highlander in the
service of the Hudson's Bay Company-a race of
men inured to tempest and storm, who, for gener-
ations, have been employed in the remote north of
America, and who, as pioneers, have left their
names on the rivers and mountains of the country.
Nor were the men all native-born Canadians, ac-
customed to the climate from childhood. Some of
them were tenderly brought up in the mildest
countries of the British Islands, and those men ap-
peared to endure the low temperature to which they
were for months exposed with as little inconveni-
ence as those who had been more accustomed to it.

"THE COURSE OF THE GULF STREAM."- Oi thll
1st column of the 4th page of this issue will b'e
found, copied from the New York "Times" of the
10th, some remarks furnished the Editor of that
paper, by a Captain Coffin, who fancies he has dis-
covered an error in thie Course of the Gulf Stream,
viz., that the supposed bend in the Stream, ex-
tending from 65 to 150, does not exist, but that the
southern boundary of the Stream runs in a straight
line the entire distance from 650 to 450 and he has
so marked it on his chart." If Captain Coffin is
correct in his opinion, it is a matter of vast impor-
tance to mariners; and we copy the article with the
view to aid in its more general investigation.
It is well known that the Stream or Oceanic
River" as Professor C. W. Thompson calls it as-
sumes more gigantic proportions," later in the
season-as September would be-than when he
twice crossed it North of Bermuda, first in April
and then in May.
Since writing the above we-find the following in
the New York Herald of the 11th instant:-
"Captain Van Cleef, commanding the schooner
Florence Shay, arrived at this port on the 3rd inst.,
from Progreso, in Yucatan. His opinion on Cap-
tain Coffin's discovery was considered important by
South street merchants yesterday, owing to the fact
that he had been for a long time engaged in the
Mediterranean trade and had frequently navigated
the course described by Captain Coffin. The repor-
ter fond him at the office of Evans, Ball & Co., in
South street, when he said :-" I am not just now
engaged in the Mediterranean trade; have only re-
cently arrived from Yucatan. My experience is
that the edge of the Gulf Stream is not fixed at all,
and I have at various times found the limit differ-
ent from the line laid down on the charts. When
making my way westward from the Straits of Gib-
raltar I have found in the longitude of Bermuda
the current fully fifty miles further south than in-
dicated on the North Atlantic Chart. Once in par-
ticular I distinctly remember having made that ob-
servation, only I made no report of it. The inner
edge of the Gulf Stream remains always the same,
but the extreme edge differs materially. The
diverging part runs along about 65 degrees west
longitude. When I made that trip, above alluded
to, from Gibraltar and came in the Bermuda longi-
tude, the current which I met, further south than
laid down in the chart, was three knots strong. I
had no idea that we were in the midst of the Gulf
Stream current, but soon found by observation that
we were. I tried hard to get out of it; had to tack
and tack and go still further to the south. Upon my
recent voyage, wheu e..iri. from the West Indies,
to my great astonishment, just as I expected to be in
the mi'l-t -f the: current, I ascertained that I was not
in the Gulf Stream at all, though according to the
charts I ought'to havehad a strong current at the time.
Coming northward I failed altogether to find the out-
er edge of the Gulf Stream. The matter worried me
somewhat, and I have frequently spoken to other
captains about it, and quite a number agreed with
me that it was exceedingly difficult to fix the limit
of the Gulf Stream."

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT ON PRO-
TECTION.
William Cullen Bryant, who died only a few weeks
ago full of years and honors, was one of the most
distinguished among the literary men and editors of
the United States. He recently drew the follow-
ing graphic picture of the result of Protection in
his own country:-,
"And what years my friends, were these? Years
of languishing enterprise, years of despairing in-
dustry, years of strikes, years of contention be-
tween employers arnd employed, years which shew-
ed the spectacle ofr laborers by hundreds looking in
vain for occupation and hunger pinched families
shivering in their unwarmed garrets. All this
while the Protectlir system as it is called has been
in full force. Everything is protected, that is'to
say, everything imported into the country is taxed
as it never was before. If the protective system be
the ground of commercial prosperity, the country
should now be prosperous beyond the ground of
all previous experience. Our mills, now silent,
should be in constant employment, not a willing
arm should be idle, not a spindle should cease
to hum. Is it not the time for a reaction? Are
we to go on in this manner indefinitely ? We have
tried the protective system as fully as is possible.
We have tasted its fruits and they are bitter. Let
us now have a season of free exchange. I have no
doubt, for my own" part, that a liberal system of
revenue laws, especially combined with a return to
specie payments, would make an instantaneous and
most fortunatechange in the condition of the coun-
try. Yes, my friend,, the time for a reaction has
arrived, an'd we are determined it shall have a fair
field. Free trade ha~s slo, t while its enemies have
been performing their unhnpi|y experiments upon
the public welfare, and now we look to see it rise
invigorated by its lohg slumber.
Let me say that I am in favor of protection
but of a protection of a kind very different from
that which for many year past has dealt so cruelly
with the interests of the country. I am for pro-
tecting the consumers-The class whose numbers
are counted by millions. I am for protecting this
class' in its natural and proper right to exchange
what it produces in whatever market it can ex-
change it to the most advantage. I am for rescu-
ing it from the hands into which it has fallen and
which plunder it with as little remorse as the
rovers of the Barbary States, in the early part of
this century, pillaged the merchant ships that
entered their seas."


THE QUEEN AND THE BROKER.
A Civil Action aga:iist Jacob D. Otis in the name of
Victoria of England-His arrest by United States
authorities. ,
The story of the prosecution of Jacob D. Otis, a
,Wall street broker, for having in his possession and
purchasing a large amount of Canadian bank bills
with knowledge tbat the same had been stolen,
which is already fa',ijiliar to the readers of the hier-
ald, was repeated in papers used in a civil
action commenced again-t, Otis i, the Circuit Court
of the United States yesterday. The plaintiff in
the suit is Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and
Ireland and Empress of India, of whom it is alleged
in the complaint that she is not a citizen of the
United States, and of Jacob D. Otis that he is not a
citizen of this State. It is further charged that
Otis received and fraudulently converted to his own
use $7,400 in bank bills, which were stolen from
the office of Alexander Fraser, the Receiver Gene-
ral of Canada, for the payment of which Her Ma-
jesty's government is responsible. The total dam-
ages demanded in the complaint are fixed at
$15,000. On application of Messrs. Blatchiord,
Seward, Da Costa and Griswold, attorneys for the
plaintiff, Judge Platehford granted an order of
arrest against the person of Otis and an attachment
against his property. The order of arrest was
executed by Deputy Marshal Miller, and yesterday
Otis was imprisoned ,in default of $12,400 bail.
The attachment was also executed by covering by
formal not ice St',5 in one and two dollar notes of
Canadian currency, $2,500 of United .'States cur-
rency and checks of Hatch and Foote, amounting
to $752, now in the custody of the Property Clerk
at Police Headquarters. To the complaint in the
case w(re added for the purposes of the order of
arrest and attachment, affidavits by Detective Pink-
erton and others, repeating in substance the testi-
mony already made public on the investigation
before the State authorities.-N. Y.Rerald, Sept. 11


LORD DUFFERIN.
Presentation to His Excellency of an Address of the
Ontario Jlunicipalities-- Lor D ,f. ;., 's Reply--A
Glowing Tr bate to the i/irtus of the 11,rquis of
Lorne and the Princess Louise.
QUEBEC, Sept. 6.--T'e ,1'.-lg ,i. of municipal
representatives of Ontario appointed to present
Lord Dufl--i in the joint address of the Ontario mu-
nicipalities upon his departu-e from Canada arriv-
ed hera last evening and made the presentation.
The address was .i :nr:.1 by seventy-four mayors,
wardens, reeves and councillors. His Excellency
replied in his usual felicitous manner and was
heartily applauded. Referring to Lord Lorne as
his successor, he said :-" A few weeks ago the
heart of every man and woman n in Canada was pro-
foundly moved by the intelligence, not only that
the government of Great Britain was about to send
out as England's representative to this country one
of the most promising among the younger genera-
tion of our public men, but that the Queen herself
was about to intrust to the keeping of the people of
Canada one of her own daughters. (Great applause )
If you desired any illustration of the respect, affec-
tion and confidence with which you are regarded
by your fellow suhjocts ani by your Sovereign at
home, what greater proof could you require than
this ? Or, what more gratifying, more delicate
more touching recognition could have rewarded
your never failing love and devotion for the mother
country and its ruler? (Cheers.) But, though
the Parliament and citizens or Canada may well be
proud of the confidence thus reposed in them, be-
lieve me, when I tell you that, quite apart from
these especial considerations, you may well be con-
gratulated on the happy choice which has been
made in the person of Lord Lorne for the future
Governor General of Canada. It has been my good
fortune to be connected all my life long with his
family by ties of the closest personal friendship.
Himself I have known, I may say, from his boyhoo-i
and a more conscientious, high minded or better
qualified Viceroy could not have been selected.
(Great applause.) Brih;,t up under exceptionally
fortunate conditions, it is needless to say he has
profited to the utmost by the adv ,it'-res placed
within his reach, many of which will have fitted
him in an especial degree for his present post. His
public school and college education, his experience
of the House of Commons, his large personal ac-
quaintance with representatives of all that is most
distinguished in the intellectual world of the Unit-
ed States, his literary and artistic tastes, his foreign
travel, will all combine to render him intelligently
sympathetic with every phase and aspect of your
national life. (Great applause.) Above all he comes
of a good whig stock-that is to say, of a family
whose prominence in history is founded upon snari-
ficesthey have made in the'cause of constitutional
liberty. (Cheers.) When a couple of a man's an-
cestors have perished on the scaffold as martyrs to
the cause of political and religious freedom you
may be sure there is little likelihood of their des-
cendants seeking to encroach, when acting as re-
presentatives of the crown, upnn the privileges of
Parliament or the independence of the people.
(Loud cheers.)
As for your future Princess, it would not become
me to enlarge upon her merits. She will be among
you, taking all hearts by storm by the ,ra,'e. sua-
vity, sweet simplicity of her manners, life and con-
versation. (Tremendous applause.) Gentlemen, if
ever there was a lady who in earliest years ha I
formed a high ideal of what a noble life should be,
if ever there was a human being who tried to make
the most of opportunities within her reach and to
create for herself, in spite of every possible trammel
and impediment, a useful career and occasions of
benefiting her fellow creatures, it is Princess Louise
whose unpretending exertions in a hundred differ-
ent directions to be of service to her country and
generation have already won for her an extraordin-
ary amount of popularity at home. (Applause.)
When to this we add an artistic geniu~,of the high-
est order innumerable personal gifts and accomplish-
ments, all combined with manners and an address
so gentle, so unpretending as to put every one who
comes within reach of her influence at perfect ease,
you cannot fail to understand that England is not
merely sending you a royal princess of majestic line-
age but a good and noble woman in whom the hum-
blest settler or mechanic in Canada will find an in-
telligent and sympathetic friend. (Cheors.) So
that gentlemen, I hardly know which pleases me
most, the thought that the superintendence of your
destinies is to be confided to persons so worthy of
trust or that so dear a friend of mine as Lord Lorne
and a personage for whom I entertain so much re-
spectful admiration as I do for Princess Louise,
should commence their future labors in the midst
of a community so indulgent, so friendly, so ready
to take the will for th deed; so generous in their
recognition of any Jl. ls to serve them as you have
proved yourselves."
His Excellency then humorously remarked that
although Lord Lorne had a multitude of merits,
there was one drawback-he was not an Irishman
-and finished an exceedingly happy speech by say-
ing that, as long as he lived, it would be oneofthe
chief ambitions of his life to render Canada faith-
ful and effectual service.

The Fenians Condon and Melony. -A deputation
of sympathizers who visited the Fenian convicts
Condon and Melony at Portland Prison returned
to London yesterday. They report that the Gov-
ernor has not yet received the order for the release
of the Prisoners, but he informed the deputation
the government had made very liberal allowances.
All expenses would be paid, and both prisoners had
received plenty of pocket money. The Deputy


Governor spoke highly of Condon's behaviour.
Condon told the deputation that he would like to
see his friends in England and Ireland, but was
anxious not to infringe in any way upon what Mr.
Welsh, the American Minister, who visited him,
had told him were the conditions of his release.
He was, besides, anxious to reach New York to see
his relations, and thought it likely he would go
thither straight from Southampton. He feared his
presence in Londcn or Dublin might cause demon-
strations harmful to others. Condon said he had
suffered no prison punishment, had conformed to
the rules, acted quietly, with self-i ,pl"o,:t, and never
denied his Fenianism. He had been employed at
road-making. Melony was much surprised to-
learn that he would be required to reside outside
of the United Kingdom.

The Citizens of San Antonio, Texas, are noted
for their freedom in using both speech and revolvers
and for a grand and noble independence. In a re-
cent convention assembled for the purpose of taking
action on public interests the following preamble
and resolutions were .,ipTt,:
Whereas the City Council, by its action in electing
to the position of Superintendent of the Public
Schools a man who bears the reputation of being a
boor as to manners, a drunkard as to habits, defec-
tive as to his moral and deficient in his knowledge of
the English language, has perpetrated an outrage
against decency and offered an insult to the parents
of the city and has seen fit to reject the offer of the
Peabody Fund oft -' (" al.i &c.,
Resolved That they, the City Council, have losb
the respect and confidence of the citizens and are no
longer exponents of their wishes.

Receipts of the Paris Exhibition. The receipts of
the Paris Exhibition for entrance up to the 4th of
the present month amounted to 7,412,219f. ($1,482,-
