previous Saturday, and the unprecedented high
tide (said to be the highest for twenty years) which
occurred next morning-also the heavy thunder
and lightning and deluge of rain the same night-
as certain indications of a storm in our neighbor-
hood. We have noticed the periodicity of these
weekly blows and at the end of the season (about
25th instant) will probably be furnished with data
to show their regularity. After the above observa-
tions the weather and barometer remained pretty
steady until Wednesday the 26th ult., (New Moon,
just a Lunation since our Hurricane-28th August.)
The barometer then began to fall steadily but quite
slowly until Friday 4th inst. (in all which time we

It is now said that the Marquis of Lorne and the

- cause of this change.

From our Special Sporting Correspondent.
Smi,-On r. c, irina your note yesterday evening
I made up my mind to do the best I could for you,
considering the short time I had before your pres-
ent number came out, and to get all the information
I could scrape together about the prospects of the
Hunt for the coming season.
Although I have accepted the terms you offered
me to continue as your "Special Sporting" for
1878-9, I really must remind you that, considering
the great expenses to which I am put, they are by
no means as liberal as I could desire, as you always
expect me to be well mounted (which is very pro-
per) and right in front among all those hard riding
fellows who, regardless of the records of the Hunt
in the Gazette, pop over gates and rails as if they (I
mean the rails) were made of paper, and jump all
the break-neck places that the paper crosses.
I hope however that at Christmas time, when I
know the subscriptions for the Gazette are due, or
rather paid, you will think of the desirability of
presenting me with another hunter, for I have not
yet settled my Veterinary Surgeon's account for last
season, which has (not unreasonably I inust con-
fess) somewhat taxed the patience of Mvi. Outer-
bridge.
Unfortunately I had not received your instruc-
tions at the time the Hunt Club Meeting took place
on Saturday last, or I should have made a point of
being present, when I am sure I should have. met
with that attention and politeness, together with
that readiness to impart information, which invari-
ably characterizes these meetings, and which are,
I have been assured, as much in deference to the
sporting paper I represent as to the correctness and
preciseness with which all the Hunt doings are
reported.
The gentleman who occupied the chair at the
Town Hall on Saturday last assures me that the
meeting was of the ordinary nature. It was re-
solved to continue the Hunt, the prospects of which
appear to be encouraging. A committee was ap-
pointed, and Mr. Carpenter, the popular and ener-
getic A.D.C takes the horn and has been appointed
Honorary Secretary to the Club, a selection that is
sure to promote the welfare and sport of the Hunt.
Work is to begin the last week of this month, the
meets and finishes for the first month, including
Mount Pleasant, Bel Air and Mount Langton
which will probably then be graced by the presence
of Lady Laffan have been fixed, and will shortly be
published.
The Chairman further told me-and here I must
thank him for his kindness in giving me so willingly
all this information-that another meeting of the
Club was to take place about Saturday next to con-
sider the question of holding a Race Meeting at the
end of the year. My recollections of the last races
at Shelly Bay are of the warmest nature, so I
hope we shall see some more galloping at the Bay;
but 0, not in the middle of the summer again.
Since that time I have kept an eye on most of our
fast nags, and I can-certify that they look fit and
well, and that none of them have left the Island.
Besides these there are several new importations,
some of which look like going, and if a long pedi-
gree and a short record (both from Kentucky) are
of any value, we seem to have imported something
that is likely to beat that by no means a showy

in your paper for the last three weeks. If he ap-
pears long enough in your columns I would suggest
your accepting the horse in payment of advertis-
ing. He would make a good mount for

seems to be BO reason todombt that under the per-
severing management of Mr. Miles it will soon be
brought to as near the genuine article as is practic-
able under the ingenuity of man. It was our in-
tention to have visited this Establishment during the

LORD DUFFERIN'S FAREWELL.


Lord Dufferin opened the Exhibition at Toronto
on the afternoon of the 25th September. His Ex-
cellency made a long and beautiful speech on the
occasion-in answer to an address from the Presi.
dent of the Arts Association-of which the follow-
ing is a peroration:"
My race amongst you is run. To-day I am but
hastily finishing off the concluding paragraph in
my official career. That record, I am happy to
think, is destined to become the preface of a more
brilliant chapter in your history. (Cheers.) In a
few weeks one of the most promising of the younger
generation of English statesmen will reach your
shores, accompanied by a daughter of your Queen.
(Tremendous applause). Under the auspices of
these distinguished personages you are destined to
ascend yet higher in the hierarchy of the nations, to
be drawn still closer to the heart .of the Mother
Country, to be recognized still more universally as
one of the most loyal, most prosperous, and most
powerful of hose great colonial governments which
unite to form the Empire of Great Britain. (Great
, cheering.) May God Almighty bless you and keep
you, and pour out upon your gracious country the
universal blessings that lie at His right 'hand.
(Tremendous cheering, renewed again and again.)

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-Having noticed the article from a correspond-
ent (whose name by the bye does not appear) in the
Bermuda Royal Gazette of October 1st, relative to the
late performances held at the Spar Yard Theatre; I, as
General Manager of the Ireland Island Amateur Dra-
matic Club, beg to thank him for the favorable opinion
he gives of the Evening's Entertain(ment.
1 am sorry, however, that the expression he alludes
to should have given offence to any one, but venture to
assert, that the word is frequently made use of not only
by the extreme vulgar; but equally so among persons
who move in good society. I wish however to state,
that the Members of the C'ub beg to thank the Inhabit-
ants of these Islands, for their patronage on this their
debut, and indulge in the hope, that their future endeav-
ours to afford amusement may meet the approbation of
all Classes.
Hoping you will give this a space in your valuable

several warehouses were swept to sea with their

in less than three hours. At St. Louts and Cavail-

rushed into the market place, sweeping away men,

From the London Times.
EARTHQUAKES AND ERUPTIONS.
The year 1878 has already seen more than its fair
share of disastrous earthquakes and similar pheno-
mena. There are slight tremblements J,' terre in one
part or another of the earth's surface, about once in
three days, but it is only occasionally that serious
outbursts occur which overwhelm cities, swallow up
whole islands, or raise up the bed of the sea from a
fathomless depth to a dangerous shoal. During the
first half of the present year, however, the intensity
of the shocks of earthquake and of volcanic erup-
tions has undoubtedly been on the increase, and if
this continues the thousandth anniversary of the
destruction of Herculaneum and Pompeii, which
will occur next year, will be celebrated in an ap-
propriate, if an undesirable, manner, by the forces
of nature itself. This activity has developed itself
since June, 1877. In thewhole of 1877 there occur-
red, according to the compilations of Professor
Fuchs, 100 recorded earthquakes, though from our
own observations, we believe the number to have
been somewhat larger. In the three months of June
July, and'August there were only 11 earthquakes;
while 34 occurred in September, October, and No-
vember, and the rest in the previous six months
back to December 1, 1876. As usual, the most
violent of these phenomena were those occurring in
South America. The damage done to Iquique,
Valparaiso, Lima, and other cities by the outbreak
of May 9, 1877, was enormous, the vibrations re-
curring with startling rapidity, and lastipg over
several days. A few days later a submarine vol-
canic eruption occurred off the coastof Peru, which
also did great damage to shipping. The effects ot
these disturbances were felt in all parts of the Paci-
fic. During the year several minor earthquakes,
though of unusual intensity for the part of the
world in which they were felt, occurred in Europe.
Those of April 4, May 2, and October 8 in Switzer-
land, annd of November 1 and 4, and December 22,
at Lisbon, were the most alarming. Fortunately,
little or no serious damage was done. The volca-
noes of Europe were unusually inactive during the
year, but in South America, in Japan, and in the
Pacific generally the year was minarked by several very
violent volcanic explosions. The frequency with
which outbreaks of this nature were observed in the
open sea was a peculiarity of the year. Thus in
February a very remarkable eruption occurred in
the seas surrounding the Sandwich Islands, ten
days after a violent outburst of the crater of Mauna
Loa, on the mainland of the group, and a few weeks
before another most remarkable outflow of lava
from the celebrated lava lake of Kilauea. Here
vast jets of liquid lava were ejected to a great height
through the hard crust of the solidifying lava of the
lake, which had lain undisturbed for many years.
Much more serious was the eruption of Mount
Cotopaxi in June, accompanied by terrible showers
of ashes, dust, and mud, which were carried by the
wind far and wide over the country, d.,'vatatlng
the fair lands and destroying hundreds of lives.
The insular volcano of Ooshima, in Japan, broke
out in flames and burning lava on January 4, and
continued in violent action till the first week in
February, causing, in combination with the earth-
quake which accompanied it, a disastrous loss of
life. Among the more noteworthy events of the
year was the eruption of a new volcano in a district
hitherto supposed to be free from volcanic distur-
bance-namely, on June 11, in a new crater near
the Colorado river, California. About the same
time an earthquake was felt in Canada. The sub-
mergence of several islands in the great archipelago
lying between the Malay Peninsula and Australia,
the upheaval of new lands in the same district, and
the observance of the effects of volcanic phenomena
in the deep waters of, the South Atlantic, and where
the sea is some 20,000 feet deep would have been
sufficient of themselves to mark the past year as an
uncommon period ofrstrang,, volcanic phenomena.
As already hinted, however, we believe that the
current twelve months will, unless a sudden cessa-
tion of activity occurs, prove to be even more pro-
lific of such events than any of its recent predeces-
sors.

The Austrian police have handed over to the Ber.
nese authorities a Swiss lady, who, under the name of
"The Russian Countess, Cajewska," is said to have
disposed of false jewelry during the last three years
chiefly in Nice, Monaco, and Paris, to the amount of
$200,000.
The very day of the attack on Gen. Mesentzoff, an
agent of the secret police was stabbed at Boetoff, the
chief of the gendarmerie at Gharkoff, the chief of
the secret police at Taganrog, and a colonel of gen-
darmerie at Pottava. All these functionaries had
previously received by post a warning that the pen-
alty of death had been pronounced against them by
the secret societies. Panic overpowers the police in
view of these assassinations. Order does not seem
to reign in Warsaw.
