to fulfill the Treaty of Berlin. A special despatch
from B3erlii to the Pall Mall Gazette says:-l" Russia

she is fully resolved to carry out the Treaty of Berlin
faithfully. It is doubtful if Prince Gortschakoff will
return to St. Petersburg before spring, his physicians
advising him to spend the winter in the South of Eu-

why the Turkish Parliament has not been re-assem-

THE ST. NICHOLAS.
AN OLD FRIEND IN A NEW GARB.
SOME ACCOUNT OF THE DECORATIONS AND EM-
BELISHMENTS JUST COMPLETED.
THE MOST PERFECT HOTEL IN NEW YORK
THE NEW CAFE AND LUNCH ROOM.
In the early part ot last May the remodeling of the
house commenced, the result has been that the old
patrons of the house are delighted and the new ones
go away loud in their praise and thus become travel-
ing advertisements for the St. Nicholas. There is no
denying the fact that in some particulars the St. Ni-
cholas of to-day excels any other hotel in New York
and one of the very superior points of its excellence
is in the arrangement which places the kitchen on
the same floor as the dining-room, thus offording
waiters the opportunity of serving guests with a ra-
pidity unknown in other houses, and besides afford-
ing the satisfaction of having the dishes hot and pro-
The general arrangement of the interior is far su-
perior to what it was in the old house, and equals,
if it:does not surpass, the most modern house in ex-
istence in this country. There is a concentration,
so to speak, that is alike comfortable and convenient
to the guest and to the employees of the hotel.
You can find any apartment you want with a readi-
ness and dispatch heretofore unknown.
I THE UNDERGROUND DEPARTMENTS comprising
no small share of the hotel, have all been thoroughly
overhauled, and rearranged, there are two basements
under the St. Nicholas, and they extend from
Broadway to Mercer St. Down stairs is the bakery
the coffee kitchen, the receiving room, the weighing
room, the servant's rooms, the store rooms the
auditing office,:pumping and engine rooms. When
the St. Nicholas was originally opened by Tread-
well, Acker & Co., the stores and wines for the
house cost fifty thousand dollars. Meeting with the
greatest possible success the firm continued to select
some of the choicest wines to be had for money, and
bought them in large quantities, having them bottled,
and knowing that with age each bottle would in-
crease in value, they were disposed to add to the
richness of their wine cellar until it became known
that the house had some of the choicest wines in
New York City, and then the guests of the house
and their friends became customers and in this way
an enormous wine and brandy trade has been trans-
acted by the house. As an illustration of the fact
we may mention that one gentleman, an old patron
of the hotel, a man celebrated for his hospitality and
the lavishment of his entertainments, buys his whole
stock of brandy for his wine cellar from the St. Ni-
cholas, and has done so for ten years, some years
taking for himself and his friends as many as forty
to fifty dozen. Large quantities of old port, sherry,
and Madeira wines, are sold by the case. There is

no other hotel in the United States tnat can at all
compare as to the quality of their wines with the St.
THE OFFICE FLOOR.
There has been considerable change effected on
the office floor, although all of the well known fea.
tures have been preserved. Every one who has ever
passed the St. Nicholas when it has been lighted up
in the evening will remember the great central hall
which owing to an immense mirror placed at the ex-
treme end of it and measuring more than fourteen
feet in height, and quite the width of the main hall,
reproduced the hall and made it appear over four
I hundred feet in length. This mirror was in the old
bar-room, now the cafe, and many a good joke has
been told about strangers attempting to walk through
it, while the delusion to observers passing Broadway
almost invariably made strangers' halt for a moment
to look at the magnificent distance magnified by its
aid. The mirror is in its old place, but the increase
of business necessitating a buffet in the centre of the
cafe has cut it out of view from the passer-by on
Broadway. The ladies' entrance is now on the
north of the main doors, and iis one of the finest pri-
vate entrances to any hotel in America, as it is also
one of the most convenient, the passenger elevator
descending to the dead level of Broadway. Through
the ladies entrance there is also an entrance leading
directly to the office. The gentleman's drawing
room on the left of the main -hall isunchanged. The
large easy chairs and lounges upholstered in red vel-
vet are one of the peculiar features of the old St. Ni-
cholas. The new grand marble staircase to the right
attracts great attention. A huge mirror has been
placed at the top of the first landing and produces
an elegant effect. The news stand besides being
supplied with current literature of the day is taste.
fully stocked with little knick knacks need by trav-
The newspaper files are a prominent feature and
very conveniently arranged for reference. The
large writing room with its elegant tables and easy
chairs, affords every comfort for correspondence, be-
ing retired from the office and rotunda sufficiently to
ensure the amount of quiet necessary for what it is
intended. The office, wash, and cloak rooms are all
situated as of old. The new bar is one of the im-
provemente. It is fitted up with a degree of plain-
ness that suggests more elegant taste than the far
more expensive one of olden times, while the old bar
is turned into one of the leading new features of the
| THE CAFE AND LUNCH ROOM.
The size of this apartment is forty-two by sixty
feet. It forms a perfect oblong, and three sides ol
it are fitted up in the most elegant style, with mar-
ble counters, at which are arranged cane-seated
stools. In connection and opening out from the cafe
are two other apartments-the restaurant, breakfast
and dining rooms. The size of these rooms is forty
bythirty-five and twenty by thirty-five. They are
furnished with tables capable of seating tour or six
at each table. The seating capacity is for two hun-
dred and fifty persons. The cafe and lunch rooms
are conducted on the European plan. You order a
la cate, and the prices are said to be a shade lower
than at any first-class house in New York. The
two beautiful statues of Bachus and Venus, import-
ed from Italy when the house was first opened, still
retain their places by the side of the great mirror in
the cafe. A buffet fills the centre of the room, at
which tea, coffee, ices, and other light beverages are
dispensed, as well as eatables as desired to order.
An oyster stand in one corner and a cigar stand it
another, complete the arrangements of the cafe
The general effect of these magnificent rooms are
in keeping with the great expenditure recently made
on the St. Nicholas. The marbles of which the
counters of the cafe are constructed are of the most
beautiful kind. They are the choicest productions
of American marbles, furnished from the quarries ot
Tennessee and Vermont, and interspersed with
them arejthe most beautiful French and Italian mar-
bles, and these are overlaid with panels of marbles
from the Hartz Mountains of Germany.. A very
singular fact in connection with the oyster counter,
which is also built of thcue costly marbles, is that ii
a slab of the marble of one of the front panels then
is plainly depicted the exact representation of the in.
side shell of a good-sized oyster.- This has elicited
somuch remark from visitors that people go to St
Nicholas to see what is regarded as a very great cu
riosity. The whole of the elegant marble work
done not only in the cafe and restaurant but man;
other portions of the house was.executed under th(
supervision of Messrs. Fisher & Bird, the great mar
ble workers of New York.
THE PARLOR FLOORS.
SThe grandeur of the modern St. Nicholas is th
parlor floors. There are, including the music room
seven public parlors! and each of these splendid
apartments is more beautiful than the other. Thb
visitor who enters either of these rooms is astonished
at the perfect beauty and harmony produced by the
grand frescoes, the luxurious curtains, the exquisite
mantels and real bronze ornaments, the chaste chan-
deliers, the subdued elegance in carpets, walls and
furniture all combined, present to the mind a pleas-
THE MUSIC ROOM.
This is a sumptuously furnished apartment and in
keeping with the general grandeur so observable on
the parlor floor of the St. Nicholas. There is in this
room and another of the parlors, besides, ottomans,
easy and reclining chairs, upholstered in the richest
of tapestries, etc., etc., two extra grand upright pianos
of the celebrated Bradbury make, and each of the
most costly workmanship. There are altogether, as
we before stated six public parlors on this floor, and
in addition there are five private parlors, the music
room and three large committee rooms.
THE GRAND DINING ROOM
is one of the finest apartments to be found in New
York. It is eighty-five feet in length and fifty feet
in width, and can seat over two hundred guests.
The decorative arrangements and furniture of this
rooif are so beautiful that they must be seen to be
appreciated, as no written description could give any
adequate idea of its beauty. The waiters are care-
fully selected, and all are thoroughly trained to their
duties. We believe from actual experience that the
St. Nicholas has the best corps of waiters to be
found in any of the large hotels of New York. Cer-
tain it is that the attendance is prompt and courte-
ous, and just what it should be, and what we are
very sorry to say it is not in some of the most pre-
tentious establishments of the city.
In the ladies' reception parlor is hung the celebra-
ted picture of Santa Claus or St. Nicholas, as he is
called by some. This fine painting is by one of New
York's greatest artists. The picture of the Ty-
rolean Castle, also well known to the patrons of St.
Nicholas, has been with Santa Claus renovated and
restored like new. The original great solid brass
chandeliers throughout the whole house have been
remodeled and refinished by Iden & Co., and add
greatly to the other attractions in the decorative
VENTILATION, EGRESS, ETC.
The great mass of people who pass along Broad-
way, or turn down Spring or Mercer Streets, the
thoroughfares that bound the St. Nicholas, would
imagine that the hotel' is a solid block, extending
from Broadway to Mercer Street. Such, however,
is not the fact. There is a great court in the centre
of the building, and in the central portion of this is
one of the largest wings of the hotel, leaving a wide
court at each side. In order to afford some idea of
the ventilation of the St. Nicholas and of the number
of apartments which communicates directly by win-
dows with the outer air, there are no less than 694
windows in the present hotel! 341 of these open
directly on Broadway, Spring and Mercer Streets,
and the other 353 open directly on the two court-
yards. There are six separate and distinct sets of
stairs running from every floor in the building to the
parlor floor, and three of them communicate directly
with the street.
THE STEAM SERVICE.
Steam power is used in every department of the
house. This slave of all work never sleeps or gets
tired; even when turning spits or toasting-forks in
the kitchen it is carrying passengers in the elevators,
cooking, or heating the establishment, and like the
blacksmith's boy who, after work in the forge all day
used to go and chop a few cords of wood just for
fun, when all its other work is over it keeps on
pumping Croton to the great water tanks on the
roof of the house. It is also available in the event of
fire. The steam pumps are capable of throwing one
thousand four hundred gallons of water per minute.
With the pumps are connected three three-inch
main pipes running perpendicularly through the sec-
tions of the building, with couplings On each floor
and on the roof. There are eighteen fire-plugs in
different parts of the premises, and in close proximi-
ty Jto each fire-plug, encased in a lbox, are two
hundred feet of hose in perfect working order, with
nozzles, couplings. &c., ready for instant application.
The total length of the hose kept ready for immedi-
ate service is two thousand feet, and the first cost of
the entire apparatus was eight thousand dollars;
there is an alarm pull on every floor with the fire-
plugs, and a direct communication from the office on
the ground floor to the engine room below. At the
signal of alarm, simply by opening a valve, water can
be thrown up thirty feet above the roof. The whole
steam machinery of the house is under the care of
two engineers and several assistants. In this as in
other departments, the chief engineer has been in
the employ of the St. Nicholas several years. Six
watchmen, in addition to the working force with the
engineer, are on duty in different parts of the house
during the entire night.
SIGHTS AND SCENES.
Now, after the quarter of a century of active suc-
cessful life, the sights and scenes around the St.
Nicholas remind the old New Yorker of the first days
of great hotels, when the St. Nicholas was one of the
seven wonders. The old times are gone, and more
modern, harder, and more practical have taken their
place. Large hotels have grown up in such numbers
that they cause no surprise. The great crowds who
formerly thronged the St. Nicholas were to a great
extent sight-seers, but the growth of the city itself
Shas now killed their place with active business men,
and the immense throngs seen morning and evening
any day during the last few months in and around
the hotel have the appearance of active business men.
SThe sight-seers are in a minority, and the conveni-
ence of the house to all of the great interests of the
trade will for another quarter of a century at least
make the neighborhood of Broadway and Spring
Street one of the great centers of New York.

A FABULOUS TREASURE.
Hundreds of Millions of Francs hidden in a Ditch near
(From the Courrier des Etats Unis.)
Everybody knows the story of the galleons of
Vigo, which foundered at the entrance of the Har-
bor of Vigo, and which bave lain since at the bot-
tom of the sea with fabulous treasures. There are
other bidden treasures which continue to excite the
cupidity of fortune hunters, and one of them is the
treasure of Hayti. Toussaint-l'Ouverture, "the
Bonaparte of the blacks," as he called himself,
foreseeing that be would be obliged to surrender to
General Ledero, was anxious to conceal a treasure
of 150,000,000 (sic) of francs in gold which he had
in band. He had the coin put into sacks and
ordered ten pioneers to dig a deep ditch in the
country near to Port-au-Prince. "You will stay
by the .ditch," he said to the workmen, "until
some one brings something here to be buried. The
interment once accomplished, the hole closed and the
earth replaced, you will return in the company of
an escort." This escort was composed of three
carriages and ten soldiers. When the orders of the
General bad been executed the workmen started to
return. But at the end of an hour at a turn in the
road they heard the noise of firing by platoons. It
came from a squad of skirmishers commanded by
Toussaint-l'Ouverture himself. Pioneers, soldiers
and drivers were shot at and all killed on the spot,
to that nobody except the black Bonaparte survived
to tell where the 150,000,000 of francs were buried.
The grass of the Antilles has now been growing
over the spot for seventy-five years. Why does
not some one go and dig up this treasure?
SPEED or ENGLIsH RAILwAYs.-The ordinary
speed attained on English railways is, it appears,
considerably greater than that which is usual in
America. The Great Western Express from Lon-
don to Exeter, for instance, travels at the rate of
fifty-five miles an hour while actually running.
Midway between some of the stations a speed of
sixty-five miles an hour has sometimes been reach-
ed. A speed equivalent to thirty-five yards per
second, sometimes reached, is very great; if a row
of stakes one yard apart were driven at the side of
the road they would at this velocity, appear un-
distinguishable one from another. Were the driv-
ing wheels of the locomotive seven feet in diameter,
they would revolve five times in a second, each
piston, would traverse the cylinder ten times per
second, while there would be twenty discharges of
waste steam per second causing a continuous sound
the whole distane.-[Exchange.
The St. Petersburgh correspondent of the Co-
logne Gazette swys of the Emperor Alexander: He
is physically broken, his spirit and will have dete-
riorated, and his activity. has relaxed. He is
really tired, and if he acted according to his per-
sonal inclinations be would probably be glad to
transfer the direction of affairs formally to other
hands, as he has already for some time virtually
A NOVEL MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.
The public are indebted to Mr. M. Barr of 80,
Queen Victoria-street, London, E.C., for the introduc-
tion of a striking novelty in musical instruments, call-
ed the "Ocarina." One of these instruments was re-
cently brought under our notice, and we were surpris-
ed at the sweet sounds capable of being proilucel from
an instrument, apparently of the simplest construe-
tion, and the art of playing which can be acquired
without difficulty in the course of an hour or two.
Designed somewhat upon the principal of the flute,
the ocarina is made of terra cotta, painted black and
ailded, a noval material for a musical instrument, and
is of a peculiar shape, to which is attributable its real-
ly extraordinary compass and expression. The tone
is peculiarly soft and sweet, and the instrument is
made in various sizes, the smaller being used for solos
and the larger for accompaniments, in which capacity
they harmonise most agreeably with the piano. The
advantage of being able to obtain the Ocarina in sev-
eral sizes, is that a complete orchestra can be. formed
with them, and a pleasant amusement afforded to a
whole family circle. It has a perfect chromatic
scale, and is not confined to any particular key. As
the Ocarinapossesses the valuable qualities of sweet tone
and good compass, combined with a simplicity which
renders it an easy instrument to learn, there can be
no'doubt that it must become more and more popular
especially at the moderate prices, commencing as low
as 2s., placing the instruments within the reach of
every class. The size most in use is No. 5, which be-
ing in C enables it to be used as a solo instrument
with pianoforte accompaniment, without any transpo-
sition of the latter instrument being necessary.
A GOOD LEssoN.-That tenon does not fit the
mortise by a quarter of an inch,' said an employer
to a young carpenter who had just begun to work
for him. 'I thought that for a garden gate you
would not be particular, and it would make nodif-
ferance,' answered the young man. But it did
make a difference. It made just the difference be-
tween the youg carpenter having a steady summer
job at good wages ,nd having his time unoccupied
on his hands. The employer found no further
fault; but when the gate was finished, he paid the
maker without another word and dismissed him.
The next day there was another man in his place.
He happened to be a man who thought it made a
difference how everything was done; he always did
his best; and he kept his situation to the end of the
season. So it goes. Frequently some little thing
which was not expected to attract attention, is no-
ticed by one to whom the excellence of the work
has commended itself, and the man who has made
pains taking the rule of all his labor is surprised
by a sudden and unlocked for accession of good
fortune. He has been brought into note by some
inconsidered trifle, which was well done merely
because it was his habit to do everything as well as
possible. On the other hand, many a man who is
lamenting his ill-fortune, and don't know what to
attribute it to, owes it to some such carelessness in
his way of doing his work as that which doomed
the young carpenter to a summer of profitless idle-
To PROTECT STEEL-WARE FROM RUST.-If all
steel or tin ware is well rubbed with lard and then
with common unslaked lime before being put away,
it will never rust. This is also the best plan to re-

A Message from His Excellency the Governor:-
R. M LAFFAN,
Governor and Conmmander-in- Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Honor-
able House of Assembly that at the last sitting of
the Board of Immigration the names of three Swe-
dish Immigrants-Charles Bergman, John Alfred
Cedar and Charles Henry Gotbolmn-were sub-
mitted to the Board as these of Immigrants who had
completed their first term of two years service in
these Islands-and who had entered into an engage-
ment to serve for a second term of two years-and
who had thereby become entitled to the payment of
Bonuses or premiums of Two Pounds sterling each
by virtue of certain resolutions passed by the Board
in previous years :-and that the name of another
Swedish Immigrant,-Emanuel Porgison-was sub-
mitted as the name of an Immigrant who had com-
pleted a second term of two years service in these
Islands, after the expiration of his first term of ser-
vice-and who had thereby become entitled to the
payment of a Bonus or premium of Three Pounds
sterling under the same resolutions.
On referring back to the minutes of former meet--
ings it was found that on the 30th May, 1-873, the
Board had passed a resolution authorising the prom-
ise of a Bonus or premium of Five Pounds sterling
Sea:ch to all adult Swedish Immigrants who-upon
the expiration of their first term of engagement of
two years-.should erter into another of not less
duration-and bad extended, the scope of that re-
solution to embrace the Swedish Immigrants of the
-importation of 1872-and that on the 15th May,
1874, the Board had authorised Captain Peniston
to intimate to all Swedish Immigrants who-on
completion of their first contract of two years ser-
vice-!should engage to remain in these Islands
two years longer-that they would receive gratui-
ties of Two Pounds sterling each on entering into
any new engagement of service-and-of Three
Pounds sterling each at the end of the second term
of two years.
On further inquiry it was found that between the
23rd November, 1874, and the 30th November,
1876, twelve payments of gratuities of Two Pounds
sterling each had in virtue of these resolutions, been
made to Swedish Immigrants who had completed
their first term of two yeau 1 service and entered into
engagements to serve for further terms-and that
in September and November, 1876, four other pay-
ments of gratuities of Three Pounds sterling each
had been made to Swedish Immigrants who had
completed their second period of service, making a
total amount of Thirty-six Pounds sterling actually
paid under these resolutions of the Board.
The payments now claimed, by Swedish Immi.
grants who have complied with the conditions pre-
scribed by the Board are-three sums of Two Pounds
sterling each, and one payment of Three Pounds
sterling-making together the sum of Nine Pounds
sterling :-but, in addition to these liabilities, it ap-
pears that the Board has incurred ethers for the pay-
ment of Bonuses of Three Pounds sterling each to
ten Swedish Immigrants who have entered upon
their second" engagement of two'years service but
have not yet been in a position to claim or have not
yet claimed the further, payment of Three Pounds
sterling on completion thereof-making the total
amount of liabilities now incurred by the Board
Thirty-nine Pounds sterling.
On consulting the Act constituting the Board
of Immigration the Governor cannot find in it any
expressions that satisfy his mind that it gives the
Board any power to pay Bonuses or premiums to
Immigrants for entering into engagements to serve
for further periods after the expiry of the first term
of service of two years and feeling doubtful there-
fore how far he would be justified in signing orders
tipon the Public Treasury for the payment of the
Bonus(s'R% premiums now claimed and likely to be
claimed heeafter, he thinks it the better course to
refer the matter to the consideration of the Legisla-
ture and to suggest that Legislative sanction should
be given to the course of proceeding adopted by the
Board and that the Board should be authorised to
pay the claims now made and the liabilities incur-
red up to the present date and that then the Legis-
lature should consider and determine how far it
may be expedient-and desirable in the interests of
the Colony-to empower the Board to continue to
grant these Bonuses and premiums for the future.'

Mr. R. J. P. Darrell moved that in view of the
fact that the recording of Deeds ard Wills at the
Secretary's Office has fallen greatly into arrear
through the Colonial Secretary being lately engaged
in work which was not hitherto performed by his
predecessors in office and it is expedient now for the
present emergency to make provision for the same,
that it be recommended to the House to make pro-
vision for recording the Wills and other documents
up to this time in arrears in the Secretary's Office
by a Resolve authorizing the Colonial Secretary to
employ at the public expense clerical assistance for
that purpose at a rate not to exceed the present
legal allowance for such service ; but as the record-
ing such Wills and documents has always been a
legitimate part of the Colonial Secretary's duty no
such allowance shall in future be anticipated-
which was affirmed.

To all Precincts:
"The remains of A. T. Stewart were last night
stolen from the family vault in St. Mark's church-
yard. The casket was found broken and the body re-
moved. The decomposition of the remains is so of-
fensive that they cannot be concealed. This is appa-
rent fiorn standing at the opening of the vault this
morning; consequently, it cannot be taken across the
ferries or placed anywhere above ground without dis-
covery. Cause diligent search to be made in your
precinct, as the remains were evidently stolen in the
hope of reward.
(Signed), "INSPECTOR DILKS."
TIlE FISHERY QUESTION.
The American Government seems to, have eagerly
seized upon the quarrel between some of their fisher-
men and the people of Fortune Bay, Newfoundland,
as an excuse for non-payment of the five and a halt
millions awarded to the Provinces by the Halifax
Commission, under the Treaty of Washington. This
is certainly grasping at straws. The grievance that
Mr. Evarts grumbles so much about in his despatch
to Lord Salisbury is more imaginary than real. The
Colonial laws which he speaks of are not made for the
government of American fishermen alone; they con-
trol the colonists as well as foreigners. The treaty
was designed to give the Americans the same fishing
privileges as the British enjoyed, but no more. It
would be strange if the Americans were allowed to fish
freely on Sundays in the harbors ot Newfoundland
while the native fishermen were prohibited from doing
so. While the Americans are placed on the same
footing as the Newfoundlanders the former will have
no reasonable ground for complaint. There is room
for doubt, however, whether the action of the Fortune
Bay men was as justifiable as Capt. Sullivan's report
is said to have pronounced- it. That the Americans
had no right to fish on Sunday may be easily main-
tained, but it is by no means clear that the Fortune
Bay men had a right to take summary steps against
the offenders. a
TORONTO, Nov. 6, 1878.-Advices from Newfound-
land state that the Colonial government has been re-
quested, by cable despatch from the Foreign Office, at
London, to send a statement respecting the Fortune
Bay troubles. A case has been prepared by the
Newfoundland government, showing that American
crews were violating both the treaty and colonial fish-
ery laws, and contending that American fishermen
when in Newfoundland waters are bound equally with
Newfoundland fishermen to respect the general laws
of the country.
FOUL OF THE FISHERIES-AN ENGLISH
OPINION REGARDING SECRETARY
LONDON, Nov. 5.-The Pall Mall Garette in a
leading editorial article this afternoon, says:-" That
the United States should choose this precise moment
to publish what seems from a telegraphic summary to
be a rather threatening despatch, addressed by Mr. Se-
cretary Evarts to the American Minister, Mr. Welsh,
can scarcely be regarded as accidental. All the
world can see that we have on our hands just now
quite as much as we can well deal with, and a really
friendly Power with a grievance like that, whilst
holding to its proposition, would refrain from casting
the matter in an irritating way before the public un-
til our affairs had assumed a more peaceful aspect.
At any rate this is what, according to the admirers
of the Alabama arbitration, we might certainly have
expected from America. The truth is that while the
very party with which the bargain was made still holds
office in the United States, the first opportunity is
seized to make a point against us, just when it reck-
oned that other difficulties may force us to give way.
Nothing else was to be expected, and for our own
part we are inclined to thank Mr. Evarts for teach-
ing our countrymen that nations, generally, are no
more inclined to forego their advantages oier one
another in the nineteenth century than in the eigh-
teenth, seventeenth, sixteenth or first.
Not Surpri;seil.-" Let the sentimentalists blame
Mr. Evarts, for he has disappointed them, not us.
The American newspapers of all shades of political
opinion, without giving a moment's consideration,
let us hope, to tfle fact that the quarrel has nothing
whatever to do with the award of $5,500,000 made
in favor of Canada at Halifax, come forward at once
with the contention that this money, due and long
overdue to us, must not be paid until and unless this
new difference is settled in a way they think right.
Nine million dollars of the Alabama indemnity still
remain without any reasonable claimant, and here
are $5,500,000 more to be retained. We should
have supposed that the Americans could scarcely
afford to recall attention to the various matters re-
lating to the Washington Treaty and the manner in
which its provisions have been carried out."
DEAN STANLEY'S DEPARTURE.
This eminent clergyman sailed for home yesterday
afternoon in the Cunard steamer Bothnia, thus ending
a brief visit to America which must have been pleas-
ant to him as well as agreeable to his entertainers.
He expressed a desire and intention *to revisit the
United States, a purpose which may be fulfilled with-
out inconvenience by a gentleman who, though so long
and widely known in literature and' the Church, is
barely sixty-four years of age. This first brief visit
has been very actively spent. Dean Stanley has made
wide excursions both in our States andl in Canada, and
has had favorable opportunities for observing whatever
is best worth the attention of a foreigner in the social
and religious life of the country. The evidences of
our material condition present themselves to the notice
of all travellers, whether they have or have not claims
to social courtesies; but no preceding traveller has en-
joyed during so short a stay such facilities for studying
the social and intellectual culture and the domestic
life of our people as this eminent divine. We cannot
assent to an opinion which has been expressed that
these attentions and hospitalities were overdone. The
good Dean has not been the guest of public bodies,
but of private families in various towns and cities, who
have taken pains to make him acquainted with agree-
able people in their respective social and religious
circles. It is only his private entertainers who have
incurred any expense on his account, and their hospi-
talities have not been disproportioned to the social
standing of the guest in his own country. Some of'
our religious denominations have indeed taken pains
to show public marks of respect, but not in such a way
as to violate good taste. The Methodist bishops feel
grateful to Dean Stanley for having admitted into
Westminster Abbey a monument to Wesley, their
great founder, and the Baptists presented him an ad-
dress of appreciation because of his fairness as an ec-
clesiastical historian in stating the real method of ad-
ministering the rite of baptism during the early ages
of the Church. There was nothing obtrusive in those
demonstrations of regard and recognition. The rest
has been mere private hospitality, although on a scale
suited to the eminent social, literary and ecclesiastical
character of the guest. lie has seen a great deal that
is novel, and returns home with pleasant impressions
of his visit. It is an advantage to both countries for
its best people to know and appreciate one another,
and everybody should be glad that American society
has been exhibited to so discriminating, candid and
experienced a judge as the eminent Dean of Westmin-
ster.-N. YI. Herald, November 7.

TURKS' TILAND.-We have a copy of the Turks'
Island. Standard of the 16th October, attentively
sent us from that Island by J. J. Frith, Esqr. It
mentions the visit to that part of his government of
His Excellency Sir Anthony Musgrave, the Gover-
nor General of Jamaica and its dependencies. His
Excellency arrived at Grand Cay in H. M. S.
Blanche on the morning of the 15th ultimo, and
landed at 11 a.m. same day. His Excellency at
once proceeded to the Public Building, where his
attention was required to the verifications of the
Commissioner's Treasury accounts, "and," says the
Standard, we are sorry to say that a large deficit
was proven, to the dismay of the public, as soon as
it became known." His Excellency, it is said, was
prepared for such a result from the report made to
him by the Auditor, Judge Anderson. His Excel-
lency was presented with an Address by a deputa-
tion from the members of the Council, Magistrates,
salt-pond proprietors, and inhabitants generally of
Grand Turk, to which His Excellency replied as
GENTLEMEN,-I receive your address with gra-
I assure you that I take a keen interest in the
welfare of the settlement. Her Majesty's Govern-
ment desires that its affairs should receive quite as
much attention as those of any other part of the
Government of Jamaica; and, although this is the
first visit, I hope that it is only one among many
that I shall pay to this portion of my command.
"The commercial depression from which you
have been suffering, I trust, will only be temporary,
and other causes which have affected you will not
continue to operate.
"The administration of local affairs it will be my
duty closely to investigate; and I shall endeavour
to effect such amendments as may be needed.
His Excellency also received an address from
itis Excellency left on the 15th in H1. M. S. Blanche
on return to Jamaica.
Edward Noel Walker, Esqr., Assistant Colonial
Secretary of Jamaica, has been appointed Commis-
sioner of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
THAT TEN DOLLARS.
It was odd, very odd, reckon it up this way or
that way, or in whatever way I might, the result
was just the same-I had ten dollars more than I
could account for. I went over the whole quarter's
receipts again to see if something had not been
omitted, but everything was quite right. Ha!
what's this? It looks like a scratching out; and
yet it can't be, for I never use a penknife." So I
held the leaf up to the light and scanned it closely,
and then, tu ning it over, scrutinized it again. It
certainly does look very much like an erasure ; but
no, 'tis only a little roughness on the surface of the
paper." I was completely puzzled. It was quite
possible for me to have too little ; but to have ten
dollars too much-I could not understand that at
all. Well," I said to myself, "it's better, at any
rate, than having ten dollars too little." Still, the
idea of there being a mistake somewhere made me
feel very uncomfortable.
I had been very busy preparing my accounts in
order to present them to my employers in the morn-
ing, for the morrow was a quarter-day, and I knew
that in nothing could a clerk offend so much as by
being wrong in his balance. So I thought a little
and then determined to consult Jackson, our manag-
ing clerk. I was young at the time-not more than
twenty; and, having been in the establishment only
a few months, I knew but little of his character.
He was exceedingly attentive to business; but there
were some vague floating rumors going the round
of the place, which accredited him with anything
but a steady life. But he had always been very
civil, and even kina, to me; and so, in my dilemma
I sought his advice. He went over my accounts
with me, but could detect nothing wrong.
Well, Watson," he said, "you are on the right
side now, and if you take my advice, you will keep
there. Just pocket the money and say nothing
Seeing that I demurred he continued ;
"Of course you can do as you please; but I
know this much, if you were ten dollars short, you
would have to make it up in quick time."
I was again about to make my objections to this
mode of procedure, when I was cut short by asales-
man, who came to say that Mr. Jackson was want-
ed in the sale room. As he strode away, Jackson
turned round and said:
"I'll see you about it again, \Vatso. In the
meantime you need not mention it to any one."
I saw no more of him till my labors were done
for the day, and I was reaching my hat down from
its peg, when he tapped me over the shoulder.
"One word, Watson, before you go; if ever it
should be found out where the mistake lies, I will
make it all right for you. Good night."
That night the ten dollars were ever before me.
The last thing I remembered before falling asleep
was thinking of the ten dollars ; I slept and dream-
ed of ten dollars. In th3 morning, whilst at break-
fast, I laid the whole affair before my mother, and
asked her counsel.
Give up. the money, cf course."
But you see, mother, I am afraid it would offend
Jackson, he seems so much to wish me to hush it up."
"Never mind Jackson ; do what is right, and I
am sure it will be better for you in the end. Tell
Mr. Elliott,"-the head partner-" bow it is, and I
am certain he won't be angry."
I ate the.remainder of my meal in silence; for
whilst I did not wish to make an enemy of Jackson,
who could, if he pleased, make my situation very
unpleasant, I had strong compunctions about keep-
ing the money. Breakfast was over, and I was
leaving home, my mother took hold of my hand
and said :
Promise me, Harry, before you go, that you
will give up the money."
', Surely, Henry, you would not steal ?"
Steal ? Never! and I promised at once.
Jackson found no time to speak to me that morn-
Ing, being engaged with Mr. Elliott; but when in
turn, I entered the private office, I saw him cast an
enquiring glance towards me.
', This seems all right, Watson," said Mr. Elliott,
after looking over my account. "Have you any-
Yes, Sir I have still ten dollars, of which I am
unable to give any account."
"Strange? Are you sure that you have missed
Quite sir; I have been over everything several
times, and last night Mr. Jackson was kind enough
to assist me."
1"It's strange; but you can put the money back
into your safe. I daresay it will be found out be-
fore the next quarter is up. And by the by, Wat-
son, I intend to raise your salary. Holloway is
going to leave, and I wish you to take his place."
I thanked him, and heartly, too; for a huudred
dollars a year was no small increase at our house.
Let me see. I think, Jackson, he had better
go to morrow."
Yes, sir; it will be most convenient."
"You hear, Wats on. I believe there's nothing
more. Good morning."
There was joy in our house that night, and on
the morrow I went forth with a light heart to take
possession of Holloway's stool.
And now, dear reader, just take a jump over the
next three years. Jackson was still in his place;
but I had risen step by step, until I occupied a
post inferior only to tbat held by himself. The
mystery attached to my ten dollars had never been
unraveled and. they still reposed peacefully in my
safe. Jackson and I got on very well together; but
there was one thing which I could'nt understand.
For a few nights before quarter-day, Jacksou al-
-ways under some lretence or other, took the books
home with him; but as I did not consider it my
place to interfere I said nothing.
It was the quarter-day at the end of the three years
of which I have spoken, and I was assisting Mr.
Elliott in examining the account of one of the ju-
nior clerks, whose ledger exhibited a glaring deficien-
cy ofonehundred and fiftydollars. Theyouth was not
the brightest in 4he world, and for a time he seem-
ed stunned. But he was sure it must be some
mistake of mine ; his cash was all right three days
ago ; and he took the book to see for himself. The re-
sult was the same-deficit, one hundred and fifty
dollars. Again he went over it, and I could see the
big dropsof sweat roll down his face as he again came
to the same horrible conclusion-deficit, one hun-
dred and fifty dollars. A third time he essayed to
reconcile the difference; but suddenly stopped
short, he turned to Mr. Elliott and cried;
"These are not my figures, sir."
"Then whose are they?"
"I don't know, sir; they are not mine; look sir,
something has been scratched out here."
"Umph So there has. Has the ledger ever
been out of your care ?"
No, sir-that is, yes twice."
Last night and the night before."
'Who had it?"
Then call Mr. Jackson up here."
"Mr. J eckson," said Mr. Elliott, "there's an
error in Brown's account; something appears to
have been scratched out; and as I understand you
have had his ledger the last two nights, I thought
perhaps you could explain it."
Jackson turned deadly pale, and, bending down
to hide the ghastly hue of his countenance, he pre-
tended to examine the figures.
"Yes; there had been an enrasure; but could ex-
plain it. He had private memorandum in his desk;
he would fetch it."
Ten minutes went by, but Jackson did not re-
"Watson," said Mr. Elliott, will you go and
say that I shall be pleased if Mr. Jackson will
come here immediately ?"
I went, but could not find him.
"Osborne," I asked of a porter, "have you seen
"Yes, sir; he went out about ten minutes ago."
Went out ?"
"Yes, sir; he came down stairs looking very
white, and taking his hat, he said he felt rather ill
and he would get a little air."
I went back and told Mr. Elliott.
"O!" was all he uttered; and then turning on
his heel, lie motioned for us to follow. He first
went to Osborne, who repeated his story again;
and then he crossed to Jackson's d?sk, which was
locked. A smith was sent for, and the locked
Mr. Watson," said Mr. Elliott, taking out
Jackson's books-he had never called me Mr. Wat-
son before-" will you come to my private room ?
I shall want you for a few minutes."
That few minutes expanded into hours; and the
discovery of embezzlement by Jackson, to the ex-
tent of some thousand dollars, was the result of our
labors. These frauds extended over several years;
and by a curious coincidence the very first of them
was connected with my ten dollars-the last, of
course, with Brown's hundred and fifty. Need I
say that Jackson waE never heard of again ?
That night I walked home as the managing clerk
of Elliott & Co., and never since have I forgotten
the lesson taught me by my ten dollars.- Munroes

DEAR SIR,-Observing that the Bark Svea" had
been towed from this Port into Castle Harbor and
on enquiring why it was done, I learnt that she was
laden with some three thousand barrels Petroleum.
Oil and that His Excellency the Governor had in-
formed her agent on his making application for
permission to discharge her-which I believe is-
usual with cargoes of this descriptioti-that he
could not permit so large a quantity of such an ex-*
plosive and dangerous substance to be deposited
within the limits of the Harbour, especially into a
hulk, as I understand it was intended.
JMuch praise is due His Excellency, I think, for
his prudence and caution in the matter, and I be-
lieve every disinterested person must acknowledge
the Governor's commendable precaution in requir-
ing the vessel to be discharged without the limits
of the Port.
The bare possibility of the Oil taking fire, burn-
ing and floating with wind or tide and spreading
destruction in its course, demands the greatest care
to prevent such a calamity.
I assure you that the large quantities of this ar-
ticle that have been stored in hulks, or on the
margin of this Harbor, have frequently occasioned
me, and doubtless many others owning property in.
this Town, much anxiety which I now trust may
not be the case again directly.
I remain, Dear Sir, yours truly,

PROBABILITY OF LORD DUFFERIN SUCCEEDING LORD
TORONTO, Ont., Novr. 6, 1878.-A special cable
despatch from London to the Mail says that owing to
the state of affairs in India, and the criticisms upon
the present administration there by Lord Lawrence,
Sir Henry lHavelock, and others, there is a good deal
of talk of Lord Lytton's recall. Should such talk
take a practical turn, and his lordship be recalled to
England, it is considered more than probable that he
will be succeeded by Earl Dufferin, whose name is
freely mentioned in connection with the viceroyship.
