ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, PEMBROKE.
We are much pleased to notice the erection in this
Church of two magnificent windows, one to the memory i
of the late Bishop, and the other to the late Rector,
made by James Ballantine & Co., of Edinburgh, who-
are celebrated for their rich and beautiful glass, and
good taste as artists ; the cost, including duty and other [
charges, about 1C0 each. These windows, consisting
of two lights each,.'the Bishop's being Our Lord,
charge to St. Peter, and St. Paul preaching at Athens,
and the Rector's The Sower sowing the seed,
and "The Slieplierd feeding his flock," in con.-
nection with the centre window recently erected
to the memory of the Dill family, and made by the,
same artists, form a handsome finish to the new Apse.
The Bishop's has been erected by members of the
Church of England generally throughout the Colony ;
but the Rector's by the parishioners of Pembroke and
Devonshire. or branches of families that have at some
time been under his ministry of forty-six years; and
we have been requested by the Committee to say, that
if any such have been omitted to be called upon. and
are desirous to avail themselves of the privilege of thus
evincing their respect towards that faithful Pastor,

will return herself within six weeks and re-open

THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT is said to be in posses-
sion of documents and authenticated copies of let-
ters which throw a light upon the recent conduct
of the Afghan Ruler. Some of these draw for the
Cabul Court the outlines of just such a dangerous
policy as that which Shere Ali has initiated, and
this, moreover, in the name of Russia, and by the
pen or the voice of Russian agents. The territory
he would be permitted to annex from British India,
in case of a successful war, is named in some of
these epistolary incentives; the subsidy be might
count upon receiving from his ally, openly or pri-
vately, is also set forth; and even at the remote
date when the papers to which we refercame to the
knowledge of the Indian Governmcnt it is
certain that Russian money" was largely cur-
rent already in the bazaars of Cabul and Jel-
lalabad. It may of course have come. legiti-
mately in the way of trade from the Orenburg
caravans--perhaps it did; and the awkward reve-
lations which have been transmitted to Simla by
some of these semi-official communications may be
indignantly disowned at St. Petersburg-perhaps
they will. But it would, be interesting to bring
them to the notice of Prince Gortschakoff, and to |
learn whether certain other experiments which are
said to have been made by Russian agents on the
cupidity or ambition of some of our great feuda-
tory Princes in India were equally unauthorise'i by
Russia and disconnected with her Asiatic policy.

THE EASTERN QUESTION.
To the Editor of the London Times.
SIR,-As I am abnut to leave England for Con-
stantinople very shortly, may I venture a few re-
marks on the all-absorbing question of the day-
viz., the Eastern Question ? By your leading article
this morning, you infer (based I presume on the
letter from your correspondent at Constantinople),
that when the Russian troops leave Constantinople
anarchy'and confusion are likely to ensue in Turkey.
ThislI venture to think is a slight error. The sting
and cause of the uneasy feeling in Turkey-the
principal cause of discontent among the people, who
cannot get over the idea that they are being sold to
Russia, is, that the Russian troops are still, as it
may be said, occupying the yery houses of their
much loved Stamboul. Ev.en-the Rhodopeinsur-
gents have given out that when the Russian troops
leave Constantinople they will lay down their arms.
Who, may I ask, has committed the excesses and
crimes lately complained of, such as the murder of
Mehemet All Pasha, &c. ? Certainly not theTurks.
If the Mussulman population of Bosnia and Heize-
govina have revolted somewhat rudely against what
they consider foreign usurpation, if they have op-
posed Austrian occupation (and in this they have
been joined by many Christians), it is because they
think that they are fighting for their homes and
liberty. I am convinced that when the Russian
troops take their departure from the immediate
neighbourhood of Constantinople, a heavy load will
have been taken off the hearts of the poor Turks,
who cannot act (who could?) while the enemy's
grasp is round their throats. Heaven knows the
Russians have given no proof of good government in
Northern Bulgaria; up to now, all they have done
is to kill and destroy their new subjects. However
let us leave them alone to paddle their own canoe"
in their newly acquired province if they will be
satisfied to remain within bounds.
Now, Sir, a few words about Greece. The re-
commendation of a powerfully combined Congress,
such as lately sat in Berlin will, I should hardly
imagine, not go very far in persuading the rules of
an Empire that is already cut into ribands, as the
result of an iniquitous war, to be very liberal in re-
gard to further concessions of territory; n,or can
I see on what earthly grounds Greece is to be ag-
grandized by the misfortunes of her neighbour.
But the Turks are well inclined to see tranquility
established on their Greek frontiers; so perhaps
(I say this without any official authority) they may
cede a portion of territory in Thessaly, where the
inhabitantsare mostly Greeks., As to Epirus, I
think not an acre should be ceded, for the reason
that more than one half of the population is Mus-
sulman, who have a right to look for protection to
their own people, and that the Albanian inhabitants
of parts of Epirus detest the idea of Greek rule.
What would be the consequences of such an act
of spoliation ? Can the Greek Empire, like the
Austrian Government, stand the expense of a war
of several years' duration-a bloody and ruinous
war, the end of which would be extremely doubt-
ful ? My belief is that Greece will never have the
right to extend her territory further than I have
suggested until she can arrive at a calmer state of
mind as regards her insane ambition, which has no
limit south of Constantinople ; until her finances
are in such a state that she can make pecuniary ar-
rangements with Turkey as to her coveted exten-
sion of territory on the Turkish frontier; and un-
til she can show to the world that she knows how
to govern and improve even the little territory now
in her possession.
One word about Crete. I know that island well,
and the aspirations of its inhabitants. I am con-
vinced that the people in Crete do not want annex-
ation to Greece-it is the restless Committee of am-
bitious Hellenes in Athens who cry out for it not
the Cretans, I admit that it is not unnatural that
Greece should want all the territory she can get,
but by what earthly right does she demand it ? Is
it because a man has taken lodgings in another
man's house, that he is to take possession of it?
Should he not rather, if he is not content with his
lodgings, leave them and settle somewhere else?
The Greek people as a body are full of common
sense and enlightmient, but their misfortune is the
restless ambition of a mischievous minority.
I wonder what would have been said had Italy
asked for Savoy and Nice when peace was made
between France and Germany, or supposing that a
European Conference had suggested such a step,
would France have agreed ?
September 13. HOBART PASHA.
Mr. Win. J. Thorns, whose name is very widely
known as a keen critic of the records of the alleged
centenarians, has received from Dr. J. C. Tach6,
deputy head of the Census Department of Canada,
the report of an inquiry into 82" cases of alleged
centenarianism. Of the eighty-two no less than
thirty-one claimed to have attained 100 years, nine
claimed to be 101, and eleven to be 102; and while
only four claimed to be 103 and the same number
104, no less than nine put forth the higher preten-
sion of having reached 105. Three claimed to be
106, and the like number 108; only one 109;
while four boasted of having reached no less than
110. The three oldest -on Dr. Tachb's list claim
credit for having reached no 'less than 112, 113
and 120 years respectively. Of these 82 cases, Dr.
Tach6 shows that 73 have no claim to be considered
centenarians, but returns 9 as having in his opinion
claims to be considered as having reached and in
some instances outlived a century. Two of the
Doctor's subjects, he is satisfied, reached the ages
of 109 and 113; but some of the other claimants
had to submit to a remarkable process of rejuvena-
tion, in one case a man who claimed to be 120
proving to be a mere youth of 90. Mr. Thoms's
present opinion is that no authenticated case of an
individual's living to be 110 can be produced, but
he is prepared to modify it on satisfactory evidence.
In his lecture at San Francisco, Mr. Beecher be-

he said, "been astounded at the great West, its

Valley, and thundered through the fairest fields of
the continent towards the infant colossus of cities
sitting serene by the shore of earth's mightiest
ocean, he felt then, indeed, that California was

AFFAIRS IN CENTRAL ASIA.
From the London Standard, September 11.
It is the deliberate opinion of the English Gov-
ernment that Russia's advance in Central Asia must
be stopped by an act of bold and even startling,
policy, and there are, as yet, no indications of dis-
sent in any influential quarter from this grave de-
eision. It is scarcely necessary to say that we have
no objection to offer to the alternative presented to
Shere All of receiving an English embassy at Cabul,
and practically of concluding an alliance with the
British Empire, or of preparing to encounter the
armed assertion of our influence in his territory.
The course is one which has frequently been urged
in this journal, where the policy of "masterly in-
activity" has never met with approval or encourage-
ment. But if it be true that the mission of Sir
Neville Chamberlain has become indispensable, and
if its necessity be founded, as we are compelled to
acknowledge, on the intrigues carried on by the
Court of St. Petersburg with the Ameer of Afghan-
istan against the tranquility of our Indian posses-
sions, the English Plenipotentiaries at Berlin, who
brought us back "peace with honour," must prepare
themselves with replies to the criticism of those
who have always maintained that they would have
done better to bring us back war with a pretty cer-
tain chance of victory. If it already be indispen-
sable to adopt a course avowedly directed against
Russia, and rendered unavoidable by Russia's per-
sistent hostility to ourselves, can it successfully be
urged that it was desirable or wise, not two months
ago, to extricate Russia from an embarrassing and
even dangerous position in order to spare ourselves
the pain of quarrelling 'with her. We' shall losk
nothing by candour, and it would be the reverse ol
candid to pretend that the claim we are now at lasi
asserting to be virtually masters at Cabul, at Herat
atJellalabad and at Candahar, is not directed against
what some people have been pleased to call th(
" manifest destiny" of Muscovite diplomacy anc

We ought to have raised the question we are ne
raising in Afghanistan while the Russian armi
were being foiled round Plevna, and either ha'
settled it to our satisfaction by the Ameer's sul
mission to our demands, or have seized a mome:
far more propitious than the present to enforce'
wishes. More than that. If Russia is our perm:
nent foe and rival, restless, intriguing, and impla
able, it was surely no business of ours to conclui
for her a peace by which she acquired considerab
and lasting advantages. These are considerations
which naturally force themsrlvfls on the mind at
* the present juncture ; and they seem to point to the
conclusion that no master policy directs our conduct,
but that we allow ourselves to be the sport of time
and accident. It 'will perhaps be replied that we
generally end by emerging triumphant from all our
difficulties. Perhaps we do, but only after anxiety
and cost that would conceivably have been avoided
by more foresight and something more. of system.
We pull through," no doubt: but that is no suffi-
cient answer to the objection that we should serif.

should choose the most favourable moment for

"That tastes good. It's beef tea, isn't it ?" At 3
p.m. he awoke after a refreshing sleep and seemed
much improved. ; To the house physician of the
hospital, Dr. Coggeshall, he talked for a while with
more animation than he had previously evinced.
He described his symptoms as best he could recol-
lect them during the first four days of his terrible
When questioned as to whether he had been
drinking on the day when he secreted himself in
the hold he said that he had not. He corroborated
his previous statement about having been assisted
in stowing himself away by a sailor to whom he
gave a bottle of beer in return for his assistance.
The officers of the City of Chester deny that the
man was a sailor. They think he was a stevedore.
Donnelly believed when be entered the hold that he
would be able afterithe ship had got out to sea to
get on deck, and he did not despair until the second
day of his confinement. Then, for the first time,
he realized that he.was doomed to cross, the ocean
without food. His hunger on the second day was
intense. He searched every corner of the compart-
ment, broke into such articles as he could open, but
found nothing except a little salt meat. ,lHe tried
to eat it, but his stomach-would not- hold it. On
the third day his appetite seemed to leave him, but
his thirst became insufferable. His lips were
parched and his tongue swollen. Up to the time
when his voice and strength failed he made desper-
ate efforts to make himself heard. Through acrev-
ace in the hold he shouted with all his might, again
and again. Then he beat upon the hatchway with
a board, yelling at the same time in a voice of des-
peration. During his search in his lonely prison
he came across some salt on the floor. Lie tasted
it, but it only increased his thirst. On the fourth
day he became unconscious, and remained so until
the time when he was discovered.
Becoming Convalescent.-The patient's pulse yes-
terday was nearly normal, as was also his tempera-
ture. His face is beginning to fill out, but his legs,
arms and body still present a very emaciated ap-
pearance. His skin has recovered a natural de-
gree of moisture. Among those who called to see
him yesterday was Dr. Dalton, Professor of Phy-
siology, who made an examination of his condition.
He regarded the case as. one, presenting many in-
teresting features. 'That Donnelly' will soon be
convalescent all the physicians agree. To-day his
diet .will probably be changed to something more
substantial than milk ,and beef tea.-New York

NOVEL MODE OF RESTORATION.
SAN FuANCIco, Sept. 27.-Iron ship Jessie Os-
borne was floated off the rocks yesterday morning.
Captain Griffiths, it will be remembered, was the
purchaser of the wreck, and, as soon as 'the sale
was effected, a contract was made with the Riedon
Iron Works to float the ship off and deliver her.
The work was planned and performed as follows:
The 'tween deck was made air tight by covering
and caulking the hatches &c., and the' upper deck

stock, plant, &c., is 8,000,000 dollars 1,600,200;
it pays a dividend of 10 per cent per annum; it is
in the midst of the sugar district, and is connected
with Havana by the Sa vanilla Havana and Ma-
tanzas and the Habana railways. The western part
of the island from the Cinco villas to Batabano and
Havana is well provided with railways, and when
the line from the capital,by the western railways
to the Vuelta Abajo is completed, all its most im-
portant channels of communication will be open.
Railway property, with the exception of the Car-
denas and Incaro, is not a favorite investment.
There are shorter lines stretching from Havana,-.
