DEATH OF CAPTAIN MEYER.-We learn by a private
letter from New York dated the 20th instant, that the
Schooner Uncle Tom from Jamaica had put into New
London, Connecticut, with Captain Meyer, her owner,
dead on board of fever, and crew sick.

The newly organized Steam Fire Company was
out for practice on the night of Tuesday last, and
those who witnessed the manner in which they
managed their engine were well pleased. In 20
minutes from the time of lighting the fire-which
time was occupied in securing the engine in the
desired position-a full head of steam was engen-
dered and the engine in full operation, throwing
streams of water through two hoses working in op-
posite directions at the rate of about 1 ton per minute.
Some alarm was created on the engine passing
through Reid Street, from the numerous live coal
which was dropped ,in its progress, the wind
being high, but we are informed that no evil con-
sequence would likely result from them, as they
would not ignite any substance, not affording heat
enough "even to light a pipe."
We understand that it is in contemplation to give
the several members of the Company a uniform.
This we think advisable, so that they may not only
be readily known to each other, but also distin-
guishable from outsiders, who might attempt to
interfere by assuming authority.

For the Royal Gazette.
A barrel of Bermuda grown Tobacco sent to
New York per Steamship Canimna, when she left
here on the last trip, has elicited the following re-
port from the New York Consignees:-
We have taken the opinion of our best Tobac-
co brokers and dealers, and also the largest export-
ing houses, houses having large European busi-
ness, and they report that in the state your Tobac-
co now is in it has no value, no care having been
taken with it, the leaves are all curled and not
smooth as they should be, and the bunches are done
up without "hands."
If in good shape, and after care in curing, this
Tobacco for foreign exportation will be worth here
for "fillers" 6 @ 7 cents per pound. Our duty is
35 cents per pound if consumed in the United
States."
It should be remembered that the price quotep
6 @ 7 cents per pound" is in bond for export
from New York without paying the duty. The
Consignees of the above sample have promised a
sample of "Havana leaf," by next Canima to ex-


hibit the proper plan for curing and arranging in
"hands," and should it arrive it will be placed at
the Royal Gazette Office for examination.
TOBACCO.

St. Petersburg journals report a large number of
suicides and attempted suicides in the Russian
army in Bulgaria,


After fifteen days investigation into the circum-
stances connected with the removal of the late mil-
lionare A. T. Stewart from his grave, no clue to the
sacrilegious perpetrations have been discovered.
The reward of $50,000 offered by the widow for in-
formation that would lead to the conviction of any
one of the supposed five conspirators, has not had
the desired result.
YELLOW FEVER.-On 18th dispatches report ten
deaths from yellow fever at Greenville, two deaths
at New Orleans, one death at Delta, and one death
and two new cases at Jackson. For the week 135
deaths at New Orleans.
Mrs. M. E. Owens, a volunteer physician who
went from Chicago to New Orleans in the height of
the epidemic, died there Saturday morning.

THE HALIFAX FISHERY AWARD.-The New York
Herald of the 20th instant says :--" President Hayes
has wisely decided, in pursuance of the discretion vested
in him by Congress, to make a punctual delivery of
the five and a half millions on the 23rd inst., and thus
end the controversy respecting the validity of the Hali-
fax award."
The London Times is pleased with the approaching
payment of the fisheries award, and thinks that the
disputed question can be arranged."
THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH.-HALIFAX, N. S.,
Nov. 20.-His Royal Highness the Duke of Edin-
burgh landed at the Dockyard at seven A. M. under
a royal salute from the citadel. At the wharf was
a guaid of honor from the 101st regiment, accom-
panied by Vice Admiral Inglefield. The Duke
then drove to the Military office, in Pleasant street,
where he had a reception for the officers of the gar-
rison. A large number attended. Aguard of hon-
or from the Ninety seventh regiment was stationed
in front of the building. The Duke then called on
the Governor and afterward drove to the Admiral-
ty House.

THE MARQUIS OF LORNE.
Preparations for His Reception in Canada.-QuE-
BEC, Nov. 20.-The Pullman palace cars which are
to compose the viceregal tVain from Halifax to Ot-
tawa passed through Chandiere this morning en
route to Halifax. Sir John A. Macdonald, in com-
pany with Dr. Tupper, Chief Justice Richards, Mr.
Brydges, Lieut.-General Sir Selby Smith, Sir Hugh
Allan and about fifty other gentlemen were on
board.
MONTREAL, Nov. 20.--In response to an invita-
tion extended by Mayor Beaudry the presidents of
the different societies, with the Governor General's
Reception Committee, met in the City Hall to-day
and resolved to change the place for receiving His
Excellency from Bonaventure Depot to the foot of
Jacques Cartier square and deliver the address at
the City Hall. Three arches have been erected-
one at the foot of Jacques Cartier square, the others
at the Place D'Armes and the vicinity of Dorches-
ter street. There will be no procession, the wel-
come by the thousands of citizens lining the streets
being considered sufficient. Bands of music will
be stationed at prominent points. The citizens
will illuminate and render the reception one of the
greatest ever witnessed in Canada.

THE NEW GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF CA.
NADA.-SAILING or LORD LORNE FROM MOVILLE.
-LONDON, November 18.-The Allan Line Steam-
er Sarmatian with the Marquis of Lorne and the
Princess Louise on board, which arrived at Moville
from Liverpool at 4-15 o'clock on the afternoon of
the 15th inst., proceeded for Halifax at 11-20 Fri-
day night.
In reply to an address by the corporation of Lon-
donderry on the 16th inst., the Marquis of Lorne
eulogized Lord Dufferin, and paid an eloquent tri-
bute to the genius, courage and gallantry of Irish-
men.

ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE KING OF
ITALY.
NAPLES, Nov. 17.-As King Humbert was en-
tering this city in state to-day a poorly-clad man
attempted to assassinate him with a poniard.
Signor Cairoli, Chief of the Ministry, who was in
the carriage with the King, was wounded in the
thigh. The King drew his sword and struck the
assassin, who was immediately secured. The King
received a slight scratch.
The popular indignation is intense, and the de-
monstrations of loyalty are unbounded. The as-
sassin is named Giovanni Passanante, and is 29
years old, and by occupation a cook. He says he
belongs to no society, but being poor, nourished
hatred toward the King.
ROME, Nov. 17.-Fifty thousand persons, with
flags and bands of music, are assembled on the
Corso in Rome to-night to manifest their joy at the
escape of the King. Another demonstration has
been made before the house of the Syndic. The
crwsds everywhere demand prompt justice. The
Austrian Embassy is illuminated, and the crowd
cheered the Ambassador.
NAPLES, Nov. 18.-Several letters from mem-
bers of the International Society have been found
at Passanante's abode, and more Internationals
have consequently been arrested. The King had
previous to the attempt on his life, received two
letters intimating that it would be made.
LONDON, Nov. 18.-The popular indignation and
excitement throughout Italy over the attempt to
assassinate King Humbert is very great. The as-
sasin is a member of the International Society.
He denies having any accomplices or instigators.
King Humbert has received a thousand congrat-
ulatory telegrams, including one from the Pope.
The Patriarch of Venice has ordered a To D)eum to


be sung.
NAPLES, Nov. 18-Further particulars of the
attempted assassination show that the King struck
the assassin on the head with his sheated sword im-
imediately on being attacked. Signor Cairoli grap-
pled desperately with the man, and received a long
but not deep wound, which caused considerable
loss of blood. He is now confined to his bed.
LONDON, Nov. 21.-A despatch from Rome,
pays :--' Passanante, the would-be assassin, of
King Humbert, manifested the most perfect uncon-
cern and brutal self assurance while undergoing
his preliminary examination. It is evident that
he had calmly mediated the commission of the act
and fully made up his mind to the consequences.
At one point in the examination, when the magis-
trate expressed horror at the deed the prisoner had
attempted, the latter said :--" It seems to me you
are getting too excited."
The People are Fools,-The people are fools; they
always act that way. To a question as to whether
he had intended to kill the King or merely wound
him he answered :-' My intention was to finish
him.' "
Cairoli to be Decorated.-The King will confer the
collar of the Annunzaita upon Signor Cairoli.
anotherr Arrest.-A person has been arrested in
Naples who on the morning of the King's visit to
the city said that a regency was imminent.


WAR WITH AFGHANISTAN.
England's Ultimatum Treated With Contemptuous
Silence.-LoNDON, Nov. 21, 1878-This m "rn ,'"
Standard announces that no reply to the British ulti-,
matum has been received from the Ameer of A fghan-
istan. and orders have accordingly been sent to India
for the troops to advance. The Central News yester-
day evening sald :-"An important despatch from
India, which we have reason to believe is Shere A i's
reply to the Viceroy's ultimatum, was received yester-
day at the India Office, in London. The Indian
Council was immediately summoned, and the result of
the conference will be laid before the Cabinet this af-
ternoon."
Actually at War.-The Standard adds :-" The
Cabinet Council which was held yesterday adjourned,
after a protracted sitting, until to-morrow, but the de-
cision arrived at dispels all doubt. We are conse-
quently engaged in a war with Afghanistan, which has
been forced upon us by Russian intrigue and the evil
effect of our past policy." The Standard's Lahore
despatch says the government ,was preparing a proc-
lamation, which was to be issued Thursday, showing
that vigorous measures were unavoidable. A despatch
from Thull says it is reported that the garrison of the
first fortress 'in the Khurum Valley is prepared to
capitulate when summoned. The column is in
splendid spirits and eager for the advance. The Post
in its leading editorial says :-" When it became evi-
dent, some days ago, that the Ameer intended to pre-
severe in his disdainful reticence the frontier com-
manders received orders to be infreadiness to com-
mence 'operations this morning. The simple duty of
yesterday's Cabinet Council was to learn whether any
change in the Ameer's attitude would necessitate an
alteration in these instructions. As the Ameer has
sent no reply it only remained for the troops to exe-
cute the original orders. The advance has probably
begun." The Times in its leader says :-" The ulti-
Smatum has been refused. The result, we believe, is
that 'the issue has now been left in Lord Lytton's
hands. We may expect to hear in a few hours what
action he intends to take. He will probably occupy
the Khyber and Khorum passes and make some ad-
vance with the Quettah column. A correspondent of
the Daily Telegraph, in a despatch dated Peshawur,
November 20, says :-" Travelling from Thull yester-
day, I passed the Khorum force advancing. 'Thirty
miles of the roads was covered with troops, elephants,
camels and cattle. The Peshawur force is marching
on Jn'rood to-day. The Ameer is again spreading
the report that Russians will defend Candahar."

ENGLAND AND AFGHANISTAN.
Lord Beaconsfield's Eastern Policy-Refusal to Re-
ceive a Deputation-Parliament only to be consulted
after War is Begun-Imminence of Hostilities of
A fghanistan.
LONDON, Nov. 19.-The committee, organized to
urge an early meeting of Parliament in view of
war with Afghanistan, having asked Lord Beacons-
field to grant them an interview, the Premier has
written a letter to their chairman, Lord Lawrence,
in reply. Lord Beaconsfield says he is at a loss
to perceive what useful purpose can be served by a
more extended expression, through a deputation
from the committee, of opinions which Lord Law-
rence and others have so frequently and copiously
explained in regard to the assembling of Parlia-
ment. The Government will, as a matter of course,
be prepared, in the event of the commencement of
hostilities in India, to advise tier Majesty to make
such communication to Parliament as the letter and
spirit of the act regulating the relating the relations
of the Crown with India may seem to require.
This would seem to be a not less satisfactory and
scarcely less constitutional mode of meeting the
occasion than a series of memorials and deputa-
tions. The papers relative to India will be pub-
lished before the end of the month.
Lord Lawrence's committee to-day passed a re-
solution regretting Lord Beaconsfield's refusal to
receive a deputation, and emphatically condemning
his apparent determination in the event of war
being declared, not to advise Her Majesty to con-
sult Parliament until hostilities have commenced.
The committee adjourned till Friday, and decided,
meanwhile, to collect signatures to the protest.,
BOMBAY, Nov. 19.-The Bombay Gazette an-
nounces that several regiments have been warned
to hold themselves in resdinesQ to advance from
Quettah immediately, and that all are ready.
Merchants from Central Asia say that no indica-
tions of a movement of the Russians towards Af-
ghanistan are observable.

POSSIBILITIES OF AN ANGLO RUSSIAN
WAR.
The Ameer's time for answering the British ulti-
matum will be upon Wednesday, the 20th inst.
England and her Indian colonies await the reply
with some anxiety. It can never be said that Eng-
land is afraid,to fight. But she does not want a
quarrel when sh,e can gain her points without it.
British bluff having so often saved British valor from
the extreme test of battle, it was doubtless supposed
that Afghanistan would humble herself in the dust
for her rudeness to England's representative and
meekly comply with all the terms of the ultimatum.
These ternis are not positively known outside of the
Foreign Offie. But it is said they include demands
that the Russian Embassy at Cabul must be sent
home, and that the Ameer must not contract a Rus-
sian alliance but remain neutral. Neither the
Ameer nor England now acts as if expecting a
peaceful solution of the difficulty, the Afghan
army is all put on a war footing, and has been
greatly strengthened by thousands of volunteers,
officers and men, from Russia, permitted by their
Government to join the Afghan forces. This is ex-


actly repeating the process by which Russia enlist-
ed in the war against Turkey. When the insurrec-
tion broke out in Servia Russian soldiers obtained
leave of absence and flocked over the frontier to
help the Servians. Substitute England for Turkey
and Afghanistan for Servia in the present case,
and we can easily guess that the war will not long
be confined to the Ameer's country, if it once begins.
England and Russia are the real antagonists whose
rivalries, ambitions and hates must be fought out
somewhere. Afghanistan is as good as any other
starting point of the struggle.
The pride of Russia, which was greatly wounded
by the loss, thIough English interference, of the
Turkish prizes she had fairly won, thirsts for re-
venge. This revenge Russia wouldd seek-not by
armed collision with England, if that could be
avoided, but by gradually enlarging Russian au-
thority and influence in Central Asia. There Rus-
sia can worry England terribly, compelling her to
maintain large standing armies in India and to
live in a constant shivering dread of invasion from
the north or insurrection fomented in India by
Russian wiles. Impartial observers, not English,
do not believe that Russia ever had the remotest
design of invading India. They cannot understand
why England, since she does not want the wastes
otfCentral Asia for herself should object to Rus-
sia's possessing them, or why, if Russia pushed
conquests clear down to the Indian frontier, she
and England might not live on forever as good
neighbors. But it pleases British statesmanship to
be insanely jealous of Russia. From this jealousy
originated the present crisis in Afghanistan. Rus-
sia sent an embassy to Cabul. The Ameer likes
the Russians and is glad to trade with them. He
does not like the English or their goods. There-
fore, while he welcomed the Russian visitors, he
gave the cold shoulder to an Anglo-Indian depu-
tation which wanted to share his hospitalities and
his custom with the Russians. He had a perfect
right to decline political and commercial relations
with Great Britain, but his manner in doing it was


in bad taste. His lack of politeness will now cost
him a war, and, unkss Russia stands by her little
friend. may cost him his dominions also. For
England, if the Ameer's apology and concessions are
not ready on 20th instant, will enter his territory
determined to win. She has now in position ready
for the campaign, about 34,000 seasoned troops,
with 150 guns. She will invade Afghanistan by
three routes. These forces are only the advance
guard of what England with her boundless wealth
can put into the field. A war with Afghanistan, or
better still a war witL Russia, would be universally
popular in India, and England need have as little
anxiety for men as for money, millions of both being
equally at call.
Afghanistan, like Abyssinia or the Kaffir country
and other obscure corners where England carries on
her present wars, is a place of small importance to
the civilfzed world. But the fighting which seems
imminent now in that distant, little-known region
will be prodigiously interesting even in the United
States if it leads into a great war, with Russia and
England as the principal combatants. This is now
among the possibilities.-N. Y. Journal of Comr-
merce, November 18.

AUSTRIA, HANOVER AND FRANCE.-The Austrian
Red Book comprises documents showing that Tur-
key officially organized and fostered resistance to
the Austrian occupation of Bosnia, sent regular
troops disguised as Bashi-Bazouks into Bosnia, or-
ganized the Albanian League, and, after these pre-
parations for insurrection, broke off the negotiation-
regarding the Convention. The PallMall Gazette's
Berlin despatch says :-" The proposal to cancel the
agreement with the Crown of Hanover, and to ab-
sorb the Guelph fund, has been overruled by Prince
Bismarck, who has asked for delay, in order to give
the Duke of Cumberland time to reconsider his de-
termination. A g:cat meeting in favor of the
Franco-American treaty of commerce is to be held
in the Trocadero Palace on the 1st of December
M. Oscar de Lafayette, Senator, will preside, and
Mr. Reuben E. Fenton, M. de Laboulaye and
Comte Foucher de Cariel, Senators, and M. Leon
Chotteau will speak.
Russian Demands on Roumania.-LONDON, Nov.
19.-The Bucharest newspapers publish the parti-
culars of the Russian demands, which, if correct,
materially detract :from their significance. They
seem only to have asked increased facilities for
intercommunication during the term of the occupa-
tion of Bulgaria Nevertheless, according to the
Roumania Libera (newspaper) the Bucharest Gov-
ernment has already declined the Russian propos-
als, declaring that the existing facilities are all that
the Russians need, according to the Treaty of Ber-
lin, and the Russo-Roumanian Convention.

The accident on the New Brunswick Railway
Thursday 14th, was caused by one of the train
hands throwing off a large bale of grain bags at
Peel Station, at which, as there were no passengers
for the train, it did not stop. Four passengers were
either killed or burned to death.

TuRKS' ISLANDS.-By the Meteor on Friday last,
we received a file of the Turks' Islands Royal
Standard to the 9th instant. Tle new Commission-
er, Mr. R. B. Llewelyn, had arrived, and had as-
sumed the duties of his office, after taking the
usual oaths.
The Attorney General of Jamaica, the Honorable
E. L. O'Malley, accompanied Mr. Llewelyn, in H.
M. S. Griffon, to Turks' Islands, and was present
at his installation. The Hon. E. L. O'Malley re-
turned to Jamaica in the Griffon, accompanied by
Mr. Walker, who was left temporarily Commission-
er by the Governor-General.
We understand that during the time Mr. Walker
was acting Commissioner, he was enable to pay the
salaries of the several Public Officers which were
considerably in arrear. The deficiency in the Pub-
lic Chest, when Mr. Smith was suspended, amounted
we are told, to 2,200, and that he had fourbonds-
men at 500 each.

19th Foot-Lieut. W. A. Chaunoy, from the
Royal North Gloucester Militia to be Second Lieut.
vice A. H. Dobbs, transferred to the 43rd Foot.

pointed Aides-de-Camp to the Marquis of Lorne,
K.T., G.C.M.G., Governor-General of Canada, and
Lieut. J. E. A. Harvey, 42nd Highlanders, extra
Aide-de-Camp.

DEVONSHJIIRE PARISH.
At a Special Meeting of the Parishioners held in
the School Room on Thursday last, Rector James
in the Chair, Mr. William Cox presented the Deeds
of two parcels of land fronting on the roads which
bound the new Church, a free gift on his part out
of a recent purchase and a boon to the Parish, be-
cause containing some valuable cedars confronting
those on the small lot purchased some time ago by
the former Chief Justice Darrell, and similarly pre-
sented to the Parish. The lovers of the picturesque
no less than the Parishioners, will appreciate this
high-spirited liberality of Mr. Cox. The meeting
suitably acknowledged the gift in a resolution pro-
posed by the Hon. J. H. Darrell, C.M.G.

We have had during the past week frequent heavy
rain falls-particularly so during Wednesday night,
when there was a down pour of several hours duration,
accompanied for about an hour with very loud peals of
thunder and alarmingly severe lightning. The
weather the past two days has been very pleasant.

INDIA.-TRIAL OF THE MURDERER Or Mn. Coo-
PER.-Kissen Sing, the murderer of Mr. Cooper was
brought down to the British frontier station of
Thayetmyo by a strong guard, and was there hand-
ed over to Colonel Davies, the district magistrate,
who committed him for trial. The Sessions judge,
Colonel Brown, tried him on August 21. The
prisoner pleaded guilty to the three charges of mur-
dering Mr. Cooper and the jemadar and a private
of the guard ; he added that he had no wish to live;
that he killed Mr. Cooper because that gentleman
was unkind to him, fined him, made him work for
nothing in his garden, and had cuffed him a few
days before the murder. Kissen Sing crept into
the house and shot Mr. Cooper as he was reading
in his easy chair after dinner. He then went out
and shot the other two men, against whom he had
a spite. Colonel Brown sentenced Kissen Sing to
death. On the day before the last mail left Ran-
goon the case came before Ihe Judicial Commission-
er (Mr. Jardine) for confirmation, who, after re-
viewing the depositions and discussing the jurisdic-
tion, confirmed the sentence of death passed by the
Court of Session,


I IEUT. WYSE'S SECOND EXPEDITION.
We have received from Paris the report present-
ed by Lieut. N. B. Wyse to the International Comrn-
mission as to the result of his labors, negotiations,
&c, on his second visit to the Isthmus of Panama
in the interests of an Interoceanic Canal.
The Commission arrived at Panama from San
Nazaire on the 29th of November, 1877, and was
almost immediately joined by Mr. Sosa, who had
been named for the second time, the delegate of the
Colombian Government, and Mr. L. Verbrugghe
who arrived from Brazil by way of the Straits of
Magellan. Mr. Lacharme was unable to join the
expedition for several weeks, a delay which was
improved by Lieut. Wyse in making a new survey
of the Isthmus of San Blas, leaving here on the 6th
of December and ascending the Bayano and its tri-
butaries to the right of Mamoni. Neither com-
manders Selfridge nor Lull had made exact studies
of that route, except on the Atlantic side. There
still existed doubts, notwithstanding the labors of
Messrs. McDougald and Sweet, due to the gener-
ous action of Mr Kelly, as to the length of the tun-
nel necessary for this line, which is undoubtedly
the shortest between the two oceans. The Bayano
in its upper portion cannot be utilized for a canal
on account of its crooked course and the hardness
of the rock in the neighborhood, an objection which
may be made also to Aguas Clarrs. From tide wa-
ter in the River Teralbe. an affluent of the Baya-
no, at the point nearest the Atlantic, the distance
is less than 80 kilometres to the north coast. Mr.
Wyse gives credit to the route traced and publish-
ed according to the explorations of McDougald.
Among unimportant defects the most important iA
that relative to the Salto, which he found a mile
above the confluence of the Charar6 and not below.
In general the rocks of the valley of the Upper Ma-
moni are harder than those of the Darlen south,
and less compact than those of the Isthmus of Pa-
nama properly so called. Mr. Reclus ascertained
that the direction of the valley of the Teralbe is
satisfactory so far as the making of the open exca-
vations are concerned, but the tunnelling would not
be less than by the route of the Chararb. The tun-
nel between Nercalegua and Mamoni would be at
least 16 kilometres lorg. Notwithstanding the
difficulty and cost of this immense work, its only
difficulty in fact, Mr. Wyse is of opinion that on
account of the shortness of the entire route, and its
many advantages in other respects, any internation-
al Commission formed to decide on the course of
the Canal, should seriously consider its advantages.
The length of the tunnel on the Tiati-Acanti route
will be somewhat less than via San Bias. The
Commission returned to Panama from this labor
and on the 29th of December departed for the
Southern Darien, and on January 8th entered the
River Tiati. A track was here opened in a right
line to the stake No. 1091 bis planted by the expe-
dition ot the preceding year.
Mr. Wyse left Mr. teclus in charge of this work
and returned to Aspinwall with Mr. Verbrugghe to
await Admiral Maudet chief of the French Squad-
ron in theWest Indies, who had formerly promised,
with one or more vessels, to assist in the bydrogra-
phical survey of the anchorage at Acanti and de-
termine its merits. The Admiral however could
not come personally but afterwards sent the steamer
Dupetit Thouars. Until the arrival of this vessel
Mr. Wyse occupied himself and associate in the
examination of the valleys of the Rio'Grande. Pe-
dro Miguel and of the Caimitillo traversed by the
Panama Railroad, and several localities in the
neighborhood of the route proposed by Garella in
1843. On the 4th of February be embarked in the
Dupetit Thouars for Acanti, examining the coast
carefully on the way. With very slight differences
the charts of the old Spaniards were found to be
correct. Acanti has a good anchorage, a breakwa-
ter can easily be made from the rocky point at its
northern entrance, which would make a well shel-
tered harbor of 30 hectares, or about 85 acres.
From the bay of Caledonia to the Atrato, Acanti is
the only place where it is possible to make a shel-
tered port. On his return from the survey of Acan-
ti, Mr. Wyse met his party at Panama, who had
concluded their labors on the Darien, and immedi-
ately directed attention to the survey of thb various
routes proposed by the Garella, Hughes, Totten,
Lull and Menocal, on the Isthmus of Panama. Mr
Garella bad proposed a canal which should termin
ate to the west of Panama, and which should have
85 locks and one tunnel of 8 kilometres, while
Messrs. Lull and Menocal had proposed, with but
little enthusiasm however, a canal which should be
fed by the Chagrbs, and would have 25 locks. At
the conclusion of these various studies, Messrs.
Wyse and Verbruggher visited Nicaragua and
passed over the route projected there. On the 1st
of July he embarked for California en route for Paris
stopping on the way at Washington, where he
had the honor of interviews with Admiral Ammen,
Commodores Patterson and Franklin, Professor
Nourse, Commanders Lull and Selfridge and Mr.
Menocal, all of whom bad taken part in Canal Sur-
veys at various points. Mr. Wyse sums up the
various routes proposed and recommends that an
Interoceanic Commission shall be called by M. de
Lesseps to decide which is preferable. He argues
that the project is now sufficiently ripe for action
on the part of governments desiring to take part in
the great work, The routes mentioned are six in
number, as follows: .
In Colombia:-lst. That of Choco, with locks
and a tunnel, via Atrato-Napipi, surveyed by Sel-
fridge.
2nd-The Southern Darien, Atrato-Cacarica-Tu-
ira, locks and a tunnel, surveyed by the Internation-


al Commission.
3rd-The Southern Darien, Acanti-Tiati-Tapisa
Cuncunaque, on a level, with one tunnel, surveyed
by the International Commission.
4th- he Western Darien, San Blas-Bayano, on
a level and with a tunnel, surveyed by McDougald,
Selfridge and the Commission.
5th Panama,: Colon-Chagres-Panama, with
locks by Lull. Colon-Chagr6sRio Grande-Panama
on a level, with a tunnel, by the International Com-
mission.
6th-In Nicaragua, San Juan del Nortc-Brite,
with locks, surveyed by Childs and Lull.
Lieut. Wyse acknowledges his indebtedness to
Presidents Correoso and Aizpurn for the un-
equivocal enprePsions of sympathy and good will
which they manifested towards the expedition, and
also to Commander Maquay of Her Majesty's ship
Fantom for kindness and courtesies offered by him.

DOMINION OF CANADA.
OTTAWA, Nov. 11.-Letters to hand from Ireland
state that Bishop Gillcoly, newly appointed dele-
gate to Canada, is not inclined to accept the oner-
ous responsibilities imposed upon him by the Holy
See. His advanced years and the multifarious
duties which would necessarily devolve upon him
in his assigned position are said to be the reasons
alleged by him in his remonstrance.
The draft of an agreement between this city and
Mr. Teal, of Utica, to erect woollen mills here, giv.
ing steady employment to 100 operatives, is pre-
pared. The city gives the site and $10,000 bonus,
Contractors have been notified by the Govern-
ntrent that no new contracts will be given out, ow-
ing to financial stagnation.
Workingmen are constantly denouncing the new
ministry for deceiving them.
Parliament will not meet before the latter end of
MIarch.


LORRAINE-BROKE. .
Sir Lambton Lorraine, Bart., the brave English
naval officer who, being in command of H. B. M.
sloop Niobe, interfered in behalf of the unprotected
American citizens at Santiago de Cuba in the win-
ter of 1874, was married at the fashionable Church
of St. Peter's, Eaton Square, London, on the 22nd
of October, to Miss Frederica Broke, a granddaugh-
ter of Sir Philip Vere Broke, Rear-Admiral of the
Blue, who was made a baronet Nov. 2, 1813, for his
capture, in H. M. S. Shannon, of the United States
frigate Chesapeake, commanded by the gallant Law-
rence, who now lies in Trinity Church-yard, in this
city, under a monument which commemorates his
dying words, long since become historical, Don't
give up the ship." Sir Lambton, it will be remem-
bered, came to New York in 1874, and was enter-
tained with much cordiality by the Army and Navy
Club on the 21st of April. The people of Nevada,
too, sent him out to England a present of a coloss-
al silver brick. His bride on her marriage, the
Court Circular informs us, wore a rich satin dre's
high to the throat, the front covered with wide lace
and the train was held by a little boy dressed in a
suit of dark blue velvet, with square collar and
ruffles of Irish point. The six bridesmaids wore
cream silk and damasse made en princess with
white satin bhats trimmed with black velvet.

THE TURF--VERY FAST TIME.

A special despatch to the Boston Globe, from
Lexington, Kentucky, on the 27th instant, says:-
"An event of great interest in the sporting world
took place at the trotting tradk near the city yester-
day. It was a trial of speed of the famous four-year
old trotting mare Maud S., belonging to Col. Stone, of
Cincinnati. A large number of persons were present,
and quite a sum of money depended on the result, as
an offer of $20,000 had been made for the mare if
she would beat 2-20. After the crowd had assembled
there were a few preliminaries to the start. Baird
got up behind the mare and sent her round the track
twice to warm her up. When Maud came to the
line for the third mile Baird shouted to the judges
'go,' and as the mare sped under the. string the
watches that had been _held in readiness instantly
commenced to register the time of the trot. All eyes
were upon the graceful animal as she swept around
the course, her limbs moving with the regularity of
a machine, and all her motions being natural and
easy, the very perfection of trotting, and she dashed
past the first quarter in 334, and finished the half
mile in 1-06. This gait astonished the lookers-on,
for the traveller appeared to be going without labor,
though at the top of her speed. On she went, pass-
ing the three quarter pole in 1-41, and down the
stretch she came at a slashing race, making a pretty
brush for the score, which she crossed in the aston-
ishing time of 2-171. Maud S. is four years old, by
Farrold out of a Pilot mare, and was purchased at
one of Mr. Alexander's animal sales of colts and
fillies. The purchaser sold her to Colonel Stone, the
present owner, for $350. Before she was sent to
Lexington he was offered $20,000 for the mare by
Mr. James Harker of New York, who, it is under-
stood, represented Win. H. Vanderbilt."

ADVENTURE IN THE ALPS.
There is one English lady who has had enough of
Alphine climbing. Mrs. Wainwright and her
brother-in-law undertook a month ago the ascent of
the Piz Palur, a mountain of the Bernina group.
They took with them two guides, brothers-Hans
Grass and Christian Grass. The climbers were
corded together. Christian Grass went first, next
to him followed Mr. Wainwright, then came Mrs.
Wainwright, and the rear was brought up by Hans.
A thick fog came on. Christian went too near an
edge, when the snow suddenly gave way under his
feet, and he fell down a precipice, dragging with
him in his fall the English lady and gentleman. But
the rope was strong, and Hans Grass was a man of
gigantic strength. As he saw his brother disappear
he drew himself instinctively backward, and by sheer
force of muscle and will held the three lost ones sus-
pended in the air. He was not strong enough to drag
from the abyss two men and a womon. To stir, to
yield an inch even, might be certain death to all-
and they were far beyond the reach of human aid.
He shouted to his brother dangling at the end of the
rope, ice on both sides of him, snow above him.
The brother answered; he was alive, unhurt, and
ready to help if means could be devised. Hans told
him to cling to the icy slope, cut steps in it and
mount, and be quick about it, for he did not think he
could hold on more than half an hour longer. Mr.
Wainwright had kept his axe, he handed it to Chris-
tian, and the guide set about cutting the steps as
Hans had suggested. After almost superhuman ex-
ertions he contrived to crawl to the edge of the cre-
vasse; his brother gave him a hand; then the two
uniting their strength, pulled up Mrs. Wainwright
and her brother-in-law.

A NEW INDIAN REMEDY FOR SCROFULA.-ItgS
a well known fact that India produces scores of
drugs, which have been used with more or less suc-
cess from time immemorial both by Europeans and
native practitioners, but which have not as yet found
their way into this country. There is, unfortunately
always considerable hesitation about trying any re-
medy that is new. even when it has been approved
by trustworthy observers, and its introduces often
meet with anything but encouragement. A remedy
of this nature, reports the Medical Examiner, has
ust been brought before the notice of the profession,
and if the account given of it can be accepted as
Perfectly reliable, the medicine is one which cer-


mainly deserves a further trial. The drug in ques-
tion is the oil obtained from the seeds of the Chaul-
moogra odorata, a tree indigenous to, and growing
abundantly in, the Sylhet district.
The seeds are employed extensively by the na-
tives of India for the cure of cutaneous disorders ;
they yield by expression a bland fixed oil, with a
peculiar and slightly unpleasant taste and smell.
This oil appears to have been long known to and
prized by the native in the treatment of leprosy, and
its valuable properties are well known to the fakirs
travelling about the country. Dr. Mouat, of the
India Medical Service has made a trial of the oil for
inveterate cases of scrofula, secondary syphilis in
broken-down constitutions, and leprosy, and the
effect in all of these morbid conditions was most
marked and satisfactory. One difficulty which has
hitherto prevented the spread of the remedy is the
persistent adulteration of the oil, but, by various
tests devised by Dr. Dymock, its purity can now be
ascertained, and there is no difficulty in obtaining it
free from adulteration. The oil can be obtained
from Messrs. Corbyn and Co., who also supyly a
pamphlet containing a report on some of Dr. Mouat's
cases, and other information.

A SECRET OUT.-A gentleman took lodgings in a
farmhouse; he complained bitterly of many things.
The ci owing of the fowls in the early morning was
bad enough, but a far greater nuisance existed than
that. The worthy farmer kept a donkey for the use
of his children. This animal was a champion ass
for braying; morning, noon and night he was at it.
The fact was, that unless the children were petting
him he was unhappy. A friend to whom he applied
knew of a cure. In the dusk of evening he slipped
into the donkey's stable armed with a heavy kit-
chen weight; this be affixed to Neddy's tail. Ned.
dy never brayed that night, nor as long as it was
done. It appears that to bray a donkey must ex-
tend his tail. 1 cannot say why, but I know that
in this instance it had the desired effect. Perhaps
pome owners will try it


TRACKED OVER THE WORLD.
A recent San Francisco despatch gives the follow-
ing account of how a bank robber and murderer was
hunted over the world and caught on the Pacific
coast:-
"The reported arrest of Burges is not fully cre.
dited in police circles here. The following is a sy-
nopsis of the story from Stockton papers: On Thurs.
day Chief Detective Henderson, of London, and
Chas. Pinkerton, brother of Allan Pinkerton, suc-
ceeded in making the ai rest at Niles, Alameda Coun-
ty, of Burges, the burglar who robbed the Bank of
England, and killed McWilliams, the assistant cash-
ier. Burges murdered the banker by striking him
on the wrist with a ring in which was a lance that
carried a deadly poison into the veins, producing in-
stant death. He then took a pile of money, consist-
ing of 1,000 notes, the value of which was a quar-
ter of a million dollars.
The murder and robbery occurred August 13,1877.
The burglar was tracked by the detectives through
France and Switzerland 'to Vienna and London,
thence to New York, thence to San Francisco.
He then went to China, then to Australia, and back
to San Francisco. On July 3rd Lord Beaconsfield
sent word to Henderson that Burges had been seen
in Australia. Henderson followed him to Australia
but was too late, as Burges was on his way to San
Francisco. On May 28,1878, the burglar register-
ed at the Baldwin Hotel as S. O'Niel and wife, of
London. He then went to Sacramento and register-
ed at the hotel as Samuel Andrews, of London.
*The detective here lost all track of him for several
days, but by chance learned that a woman of the
town had in her possession a curious Russian coin
and found that she had obtained the coin from a man
who proved ultimately to be Burges."

AT EVENTIDE.
Poor and inadequate the shadow-play
Of gain and loss, ot waking and of dream;
Against life's solemn background needs must seem
At this late hour. Yet not unthankfully
I call to mind the fountains by the way,
The breath of flowers, the bird-song on the spray,
Dear friends, sweet human loves, the joy of giving
And of receiving, the great boon of living
In grand, historic years when Liberty
Had need of word and work, quick sympathies
For such as fail and suffer, songs relief,
Nature's uncloying loveliness; and chief
The kind, restraining hand of Providence,
-The inward witness, the assuring sense
Of an Eternal Good that overlies
The sorrow of the world, Love which outlive
All sin and wrong, Compassion which forgives
To the uttermost, and Justice, whose clear eyes
Through lapse and failure look to the intent,
And judge our frailty by the life we meant.

The copying and recording of which are now in
arrear," and also to include in the Resolve some
provision to enable the Audit Committee to accept
the Colonial Secretary's Certificate for the sums
payable under the Resolutions for recording docu-
ments-which was objected to on a point of order.
His Honor the Speaker overruled the objection.

of which are now in arrear," and also to add to the
Resolution some provision to empower the Audit
Committee to accept the Colonial Secretary's Certi-
ficate for the sums payable under theresolution for

Mr. Thomas F. J. Tucker moved the following:-
"Whereas the Honorable Member for Pembroke,

of his continued ill health-Resolved, that his re-
signation be accepted and that a message be sent to
lis Excellency the Governor requesting that His
Excellency would be pleased to cause a Writ to be
issued for electing a Member for Pembroke Parish
to serve in the General Assembly in the room of
Samuel Saltus, Esqr., who had tendered his resig-
nation in consequence of ill-health which has been
accepted"-which was agreed to.
Ordered that the Message be accordingly sent to
His Excellency the Governor.
A Message from His Excellency the Governor :-
(No. 36.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in.- Chief.
The Governor has the honor to point out to the
Honorable House of Assembly that in his Message
Number 15 of the present year,-dated Mount
Langton, 21st June 1878,-he requested the Legis-
lature to provide funds for the payment of Accounts
rendered by the Crown Agents for the Colonies for
Stationery supplied for the use of the Colonial Sec-
retary's Office, and of the Receiver General's De-
partment, amounting, with freight thereon, to 45
15/6.


I In the Proceedings of the Honorable House of
Assembly for Monday, 22nd July, 1878, it is recor-
ded that a Resolve for paying for this Stationery
was read a second time on that date and c' mmitted,
and that a Committee was appointed to Audit the
Crown Agents Accounts, and in the Proceedings of
the House for Monday, 29th July, 1878, it is re-
corded that the report of this Committee was pre-
sented to the House, but the Governor cannot find
that any further proceedings have been taken
thereon.
As it is desirable that the Accounts of the Crown
Agents with this Colony should be settled without
delay, the Governor trusts that the Resolve provid-
ing for the payment of the sum of 45 15/6 will be
passed with as little delay as possible.
The Governor desires at the same time to bring
to the notice of the Honorable House of Assembly
that in the last Account furnished by the Crown
Agents for the Colonies, viz.:-that for the Quar-
ter ending 30th June, 1878, there are two items for
the payment of which no funds have been provided,
and for the payment of which therefore it is desir-
able that provision should at once be made :-the
first is a charge of 158. 2d. for freight paid on cer-
tain books and printed forms sent here by the
Imperial Government for the information of the
Colonial Revenue Department:-the second is a
charge of 3 6/4 for Commission on Cash advanced
by the Crown Agents to the 31st December, 1877,-
the origin of this Cash advanced being that on
some occasions the Crown Agents had found it ne-
cessary to pay Cash in England for orders sent
from this Colony-before any remittance could be
made from this Colony to meet the charge.
Mount Langton, 2 November, 1878.
The Resolve for paying carriage hire incurred by
the Coroner, was read a third time and passed.
Adjourned to Friday next.
Orders;-
The Resolve providing for recording Wills, &o.,
in the Secretary's Office.
The Governor's Message, No. 36, relating to the
Crown Agent's Accounts.


[ Written expressly for the Bermuda Royal Gazette,]
THE BERMUDA SEASON.

The month of November may be taken as the
opening of the Bermuda Season. Visitors, who in-
tend to sojourn during the cool and pleasing Win-
ter months, are now arriving, and the social diver-
sions, which characterize the cooler and more
bracing months of the year, are just coming into
play. The dullness of the Dog days is now rapidly
wearing away. Those, who sought refuge from the
heat in cooler and distant climes, are to be found in
their accustomed haunts, and those who remained
at home in a state of quietude, as most consistent
with great heat, are again emerging from their se-
lected retirement. Life is again becoming more
active, from within there is greater energy; from
without, there are acceptable additions to the native
elements. Both are in combination to secure a
maximum of social delights, to make the days as
cheerful as they themselves are bright and invigo-
rating.
The hotels and boarding houses are all in order
ready for guests, and with each trip of the Canima,
an'accession to our Winter residents is looked for-
ward to with eagerness. And even a certain per-
centage of transients is regarded with satisfaction.
Better to see Bermuda and inhale its genial air for
three days than not at all, and to catch a passing
glimpse of -its peculiar physical features. The
voyage hither may not have abounded in all the
comforts which the creature will ever crave. But,
notwithstanding, a few days acquaintance with this
insular group will fully atone for any passing dis-
comforts.
The pellucid water with its matchless colour, the
waving and serrated shore lines, the weather-worn
rocks, the many and varied shaped islands, the
monotonous green of the cedars here and there only
relieved by trees of other shades of colour, the
semi-tropical vegetation everywhere observable,
and the many forms of subaqueous life contribute
to the entire novelty, which even the passing visitor
surely discerns in a visit to the Somers' Islands.
Not only, however, is there a novelty, but an extra-
ordinary compactness and variety will be noticed,
rarely indeed found. So that, should a passing
visitor be disinclined for social interchanges or de-
sire them only in moderation, he will find ample
resources to wile away a profitable day now and
then, even should he be no enthusiast in natural
science. There are many pleasant drives and toler-
ably good roads, there are numerous delightful
boating and yachting excursions, and there are
many paths which the pedestrian will pleasingly
tread. By the sea shore, when the gentle ripple
varies the placid surface, or when wind and tide
dash the wild waves foaming furiously against the
cavernous rocks. Through the allies, which for
the nonce seem to raise a doubt whether you are
actually hemmed-in on a narrow sea-girt isle-or
on the hill tops and escarpments, whence varied
views may 1, had. If possible, combine always a
little walking with any boating, driving, or riding
excursions. In this way with the least waste of
physical energy you will reap many advantages.
Almost invariably, you will be amply repaid by
some little discovery that will add to your pleasure.
And, for'this varied style of exploration, Bermuda
is eminently adapted. There are no lack of sub-
jects to engage the mind that is at all thoughtful,
to amuse the eye that is keenly active, and to oc-
cupy the whole being which is naturally energetic,
even in the pursuit of recreative pleasure.
There are many views which the visitor will
wish to see again and again. Notably that from
the Light House, the like of which is nowhere else
to be seen, almost the whole of the Bermuda group,
save only a small section at the East end, lies at your
feet in fairy form. In truth, the view seems more
like that had from a balloon than from a land tower.
It is a picture thrown carelessly and picturesquely
on the bosom of ocean, which ranks among the many
varieties of scenery, which at once arrest the atten-
tion, and command the general admiration of man-
kind. But some may say-True, all that is very
beautiful, but it does not commend itself to me,
there is no bold background, or the view is too
general and comprehensive, to retain all the at-
tractions of a gentle landscape, and the whole may
be pronounced as destitute of grandeur and wanting
in sweetness. We present to you a Bermudian
picture which no artist could attempt to represent,
because of its peculiarity-small sections could
alone be sketched with advantage-and we do not
ask you to pronounce that the finest picture you
ever looked on. But you must certainly confess
that it is one of the most extraordinary you have
beheld, and the more so as wanting in many pecu-
liarities, which are so intimately associated with
scenes which for ages have been ranked as classical.
The view partakes more of the Western Prairies
than of the Highlands of the Hudson, or the Penn-
sylvania Mountain ranges. But then it lacks that
eminent monotony which is inherent in the flat
prairie. To speak generally, Bermuda scenery has
none of that dashing boldness which holds the mind
in wonder. It is more softened and subdued in its
nature. And yet, for the artist's or amateur's
sketch book, these Islands have many astonishing
tit-bits of wildness, which may readily be detected
in such walks as those along the South shore. And
it is astonishing what a variety of sketches can be
made. Heyl has by no means brought his camera
to bear on all the spots of beauty, and yet, on a
visit to his studio, you will notice that his collection
is by no means small. The view from the Light
House belongs to a class of subject rarely met with.
Not only is it beautiful in itself but extremely rare,
and on that account the more impressive. It is a
lack of judgment and taste that would despise it,
because another and different characteristic may be


preferred.
The tourist ought calmly to be prepared to en-
counter what he finds without prejudice, and thus
have the pleasure of his travel largely augmented.
The visitor ought not to confine his attention to
but one section of the Island, would he have that
full variety, which adds so materially to actual en-
joyment. The social amenities of Hamilton are no
doubt enticing. But a few days spent in St. Geor-
ge's, at the Flatt's,_and at Somerset, would benefi-
cially expand the Panorama, and add to the esti-
mate formed of the value of a Winter season spent
in the Bermudas.
You must take the climate as you find it, but we
believe on the whole that the northern sections
of America have not, within the same easy access, a
more equable or pleasing Winter climate. And the
well known Winter resorts of Europe, if brought
into the comparison, will rank at least no higher
than Bermuda. If last Winter the rainfall was
heavy and the humidity of the atmosphere greater
than was desirable, it must be remembered that
Nice, Cannes, &c., have also their disagreeable spells
of weather; and, when so, less endurable than
Bermuda. If you must escape rain and damp "flee
into Egypt," lazily hug the margin of the dreary
Nile" and escape as the Khamaseen approaches in
the Spring. There you may exist comfortably on
one lung. Bermuda is indeed more suited to those
who feel in need of a change, without being griev-
ously afflicted, and is not commended as a last re-
sort in desperate cases. To those who have suffi-
cient health to make it their object to improve it,
without feeling any oppressive exertion in the at-
tempt, a Winter in the Somers' Islands will have its
benefits. To those who have no love for the beau-
tiful in nature,. who take no delight in anything
else than in the social excitements of the season,
and which they will usually find numerous enough,
it is very possible the place may appear "stupidly
dull," these very pleasures in which they revel, after
a while becoming, as they are wont, insipidly mono-
tonous. But to those who have some little resour-
ces in themselves, and will bring their common sense


into play, we promise that a Bermuda Season will
have an enduring charm, affording intervals for
rest, for study, and'for diversion, and withal a heal- M
thy atmosphere bringing up the physique, while the I
mental element is more than satisfied.
It would be pure egotism to affirm that Bermuda
is not largely open to improvement in meeting the
necessities and the comforts of Winter visitors.
Within the last few years many improvements have
been effected, and with the increase of visitors they
must still further improve. A commercial spirit
will apprehend and satisfy demands, which are
likely to be of a permanent nature. And visitors
may meanwhile be lenient in their judgment, if
Bermuda, in its climatic and social aspects, comes up
to their reasonable expectations. It were absurd
to be too exacting in a small locality with limited
advantages.
The quality of Bermuda living ought to be supe-
rior to what is found in Europe, the flavour of a
well prepared 'Mudian Turkey is well known, e-
clipsing anything Taylor could supply; the two
services and the people are supplied with the best
American cattle, stall fed previously to being
brought into requisition; a variety of tasty native
fish-and a better supply than ordinarily obtain-
able should be had regularly-a plentiful supply of
salt and pickled fish to be had from Halifax, while
regular steam connection with New York
brings the finest provision mart in the world within
easy access. And with proper care, fresh vegetables
should hardly ever be wanting, while flowers, which
grow with unrivalled luxuriance should be more read-
ily had than they are to garnish the table. It is per-
haps, because flowers grow too easily and are no rarity,
that so little pains is taken to cultivate them in the
cottages and houses. The anxiety to make Ber-
muda an early Spring Kitchen Garden for New
York as regards onions and potatoes, and the desire
to secure as large profits as possible, has perhaps
disturbed many things which would otherwise have
received attention. There are such things as
healthy re-actions, and, if Bermuda is still behind
hand, we think a start is being made upwards
which the encouragement of successive seasons will
improve gradually.
The season of 1878-9 has opened. The Bermuda
Hunt has re-assembled, active preparations are in
hand for the approaching races, Lady Laffan has
returned to Mount Langton and held her first recep-
tions, Vice-Admiral Inglefield will soon take up his
residence at Admiralty House, Spanish Point-the
Fleet detained at Halifax unusually late to greet
the Princess Louise on her advent to Canada. The
curtain has risen and the stage is visible-" permit

CANINE MADNESS.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-A lengthy article on the above subject ap-
pears in the London Graphic of 7th Sept. last,
which induces me to ventilate the subject in its re-
lation to the Dog Law in Bermuda, through the
medium of your valuable paper.
Your readers are aware that an inequality exists
in the dog tax in these Islands, the tax for dogs
being four shillings per head, and that for bitches
ten shillings. Why this wonderful distinction?
It points to the fact that the individual to whom
the framing of this law was entrusted paid little
attention to the laws of nature, or probably his
education on that useful subject had been neglected.
It has been proved beyond doubt that hydropho-
bia in Great Britain was materially increased by a
similar law, which will be found ably treated on in
the article above referred to and which is deserving
of special study.
Can any one imagine the extent of the calamity
that would be caused by the introduction of Hy-
drophobia in these Islands-The result would be
simply. terrible, and yet the law is forcing it up-
on us.
As an improvement in the existing law I would
suggest that if it be necessary that a tax should be
imposed at all, it should be general, and without
distinction. Every owner of a dog should, on pay.
ing the tax be supplied with a numbered collar.
All dogs found without collars to be impound-
ed and if not claimed within a certain period to be
destroyed.
Trusting these remarks may come under the obser-
vation of His Excellency the Governor, and all who
study nature, and that some effectual steps may be
taken to remedy a law so cruel and at variance with
all proper feeling.
I remain, your obedient Servant,
November 22, 1878.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIB,-Knowing your desire to publish the truth
will you allow me to correct a mistake in your
very useful Book Almanack.
Under services of Civil Officers in Almanack for
1878, page 164, and several years past, it is stated
that J. H. Trott's Commission as Provost Marshal
General, bears date 16th January, 1839, that there
is not a person living who held office of any kind
when he received his Commission save the ex-Chief
Justice and the Queen's Printer-not a member of
the Council, of the Assembly, of the Bench or Bar,
nor Constable, nor Medical man, except Dr. Hunt.
I beg most respectfully to state that early in
July 1834 I was appointed by Sir S. R. Chapman
-then Governor-to the office of Gaoler at St.
Georges, Forster Cooper then Provost Marshal
General, and in which Office I was found by Mr.
Trott when he received his Commission, and where
I remained for several years when I resigned to
visit my friends in England. I am thankful I am
still living and in ,the enjoyment of good health,
and though I have no particular desire to be asso-


ciated by name with the above-named Gentlemen
yet I would suggest that the words, and one other
person" after Dr. Hunt be inserted, so as to make a
correct record.

CASE OF THE DEMERARA SUGARS.
BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 20.-In the case of the United
States vs. 712 bags of sugar, part of the cargo of the
brig Mississippi, seized for forfeiture, in the trial of
which was involved the question whether the Demerara
sugars imported into the United States were artificially
manufactured of a dark color to evade the payment of
duties, the jury, after being out since two o'clock yes-
terday, came into court this afternoon, having agreed
upon a verdict. The following instructions were given
the jury by Judge Giles before they retired :-
There are two issues that the jury are required to
pass upon :-First, were these sugars artificially color-
ed a dark brown color by some foreign matter applied
to them after their crystallization and for the purpose
of their being introduced into the United States at a
lower rate of duty than they otherwise would be requir-
ed to pay? second, did the claimants know this fact,
and (lid they introduce them into this port with the
fraudulent intent of importing them at a lower rate of
duty than they should otherwise have paid ?
The jury rendered their verdict:-" We find upon
the first issue for the United States; upon the second
issue'for the defendant."
The trial of this case occupied over six weeks, and
the costs will exceed 810,000.

A dispatch from Copenhagen to the Pall Mall
Gazette says the Duke of Cumberland has d eter-
mined not to abdicate his rights to the Crow n of
Hanover, and that all reports to the contrary are
incorrect.


From Our Special Sporting Correspondent.
Wednesday last again saw me in the saddle on th e
way to the Hunt-for with the prospect of a finish a4
Mount Langton I could not resist the temptation in
spite of Mrs. T. telling me that I am much too old to
go riding about the country after a pack of young noo-
dles as she calls the sporting young "l Hofficers" (for
she will put an "h" in the word do what I will) who
keep up the Bermuda Hunt in such an energetic man-
ner: and she vows dire vengeance on the unsuspecting
head of the Master of the Hunt if ever I come to grief
-" he ought to know better," she says, than lead an
old fellow, old enough to be his grandfather, over such
a country on such a wild goose chase"-but little she
knows about it, and if there was a real live wild goose
at the end I believe my dear old. woman would be the
first to follow in pursuit. But to return to my muttons
-a term which, by the by, I believe I made use of last
season, and which in this case must apply to the paper
which our two runners have laid for us to follow-I am
sorry to say I arrived at Knapton Hill too late to
take stock of the field, which I was very anxious to do,
as|T heard that some fresh blood was to be seen-a well-
known rider who has brought a horse from Halifax,
which they tell me will give some trouble at the coming
race meeting; but too late I was, or rather, I believe, the
Master was too early, and so I was obliged to retrace
my steps downwards to Smith's Church. where I knew
I could cut the riders off, and join in if I wished. The
line lay first round the south side of Knapton Hill, and
thence the Hunt came full cry down the western slope
over Mr. Clarence Peniston's rails into his large field.
which T am afraid will be planted with onions before we
are in that part of the country again, across the field,
then over a rail and wall into another field, and then
across a portion of Mr. Pearman's land, over some rails
and so up to Smith's Church. I had hardly reached
the Church when I heard the cheery sound of the horn,
which caused my old nag quite to prick up his ears, and
the prospect of a gallop fairly woke him up, but discre-
tion seemed to me the better part of valour when I saw
that the field, though small, consisted of rather too hard
riding a lot for me, and so I determined to join for once
the road brigade. Hullo, there is a regular turnover"
-pick up the pieces; a soft bed that fortunately. I
don't know which looked the most comfortable, horse or
rider; however, both are soon up again, and I perceive
the flying doctor is administering some internal and
warming advice-to the horse I suppose-and then on
they come again. Leaving Smith's Church, the line
crosses Mr. Zuill's land, and so on toward the middle
road; but here there comes a check, and it was some few
minutes before the scent could be picked up: but for-
rard on" proclaims that all is right again, and, cross-
ing the road, they make straight for the north shore,
taking a few nice walls and some very pretty timber on
the way. Coming out on the north shore close to Mr.
Hill's house, we got a pleasant gallop along the top of
the hills, passing in front of the old Lunatic Asylum,
then past Bleak House, over a wall there, then two
more walls, followed by a delightful bullfinch, and then
on to the road. Turning soon off the road we again
turned up the hill, and entering the Mount Langton
grounds, finished over the wall and fences, near which
was assembled a large number of spectators, for nearly
all the beauty and fashion had come to Lady Laffan's
"at home" to welcome her back to Bermuda. This
brought to an end what those who were riding tell me
was a very pleasant run, and I quite echo those senti-
ments (as far as after the finish" was concerned).
I have paid one or two visits to Shelly Bay since I
last wrote, and all seems to be progressing very favor-
ably towards preparations for the races, and I hear the
entries promise to be fairly numerous, so I think we
may look for a very pleasant and successful meeting.
I was very glad to hear a report a day or two ago that
in all probability a steamer will be available to convey
people to the race course on the morning of the 4th
december, which I am sure will be a very great help
to many who would otherwise find a difficulty in getting
there. TALLY-HO.

HAMIxTON, BERMUDA, Nov. 23, 1878.
DEAr MR. LEE,-If you can spare space in your
valued paper, I would like to give a short account
of a visit that I paid to the Ice Factory lately es-
tablished by Mr. Thomas Miles at Spanish Point.
I was fortunate enough to arrive at a time when
the! apparatus was at work and had the pleasure of
seeing the ice made.
The apparatus is extremely simple in itself, and
probably a description of it may interest some of
your readers. In the centre of the room is placed
the refrigerator. This consistsof a tubular cop-
per cylinder placed horizontally in an iron tank,
through which an uncongealable liquid (composed
of a solution of chloride of magnesium, sodium and
other salts), is made to circulate by means of a small
propeller wheel at one end of the tank. In this
tank are placed the moulds or cans for making the
ice. The freezing agent used in this apparatus is
anhydrous sulphurous oxide, a colorless liquid hav-
ing a specific gravity of 1-6 ; by the volatilization
of this liquid intense cold is produced. With this
liquid the copper cylinder in the refrigerator is
filled. By means of a pump placed at one end of
the refrigerator the oxide is volatilized in the cylin-
der and the intense cold produced is communicated
to the surrounding liquid, which in turn communi-
cates it to the moulds of fresh water. After being
volatilized, the oxide is forced by the same pump
through the condenser, another tubular copper cy-
linder, through which is kept flowing a continuous
stream of cold water. From the condenser the
oxide is returned in a liquid form to the refrigera-
tor again to go through the same process. The
motive power for the apparatus is supplied by a
20-horse power horizontal engine. The water for
the condenser is supplied by a force pump from a
well over 80 feet deep, dug for the purpose, by the
proprietor at great expense, the well alone costing
over 60 [stg. At the rear of the building are
three large tanks with a catch that covers over an
acre of ground. These supply the water used in
making the ice. Any person who can spare .the
time would find a visit to the factory very interesting
and I trust Mr. Miles will receive the patronage of
all.


Yours most respectfully,
THE CRITIC.

CITY OF NORWICH INUNDATED.-LONDON, Nov.
18.-Part of the city ot Norwich has been inundat-
ed by a freshet in the river Wensum. Two of its
most densely populated districts are several feet
under water. The basements of all the factories
warehouses, granaries and dwellings along the>
course of the river are flooded. One or two deaths
by drowning are reported. Four or five miles of
streets are submerged. From three to four thous-
and dwellings have been rendered uninhabitable.
The result is vast pecuniary damage. The author-
ities are maintaining the homeless poor. The flood
is the consequence of a fortnight's continuous rain.

The Princess Mary, daughter and youngest child
of the Grand Duke of Hesse, died Saturday of diph-
theria. The Grand Duke and four more of his
children havethe disease.
Lord Rosebery has been elected Lord Rector of
Aberdeen University by a majority of four over
