Captain Fellows, of the American Ship "Winged
Hunter," recently arrived in distress, reports as fol-
lows: Left Liverpool Nov. 1st,i same day lost a
seaman named Thomas Martin overboard. First
two weeks out had fine weather after that experien-
ced a succession of heavy gales. In Lat. 35-50,
Long. 60, an able seaman, Thos. Clarke, was lost
overboard. Lost some rigging, spars and sails.


The iron Screw Steamer Kate, brigantine rigged,
Capt. Simpson, of Whitby, England, out 11 days from
Galveston, Texas, laden with cotton, bound to Havre,
France, struck on Long Bar, Westward of these Is-
lands on Saturday night last, and although she soon
got afloat sustained such damage as to cause her to
leak badly, and so much water got into her hold that it
put out the fires, and her machinery consequently be-
came of no avail. As soon as the day dawned-signals
were made for assistance from the shore. Capt. Mores-
by, the Superintendent of the Royal Naval Establish-
ment at Ireland Island, promptly sent H. M. S. Spi fire
to the Kate, and the Steam Tug C. F. Ackerman alsc
went to her assistance. These vessels succeeded in nearly
bringing the Kate into the Castle Roads, but finding
she was settling rapidly, it was deemed necessary tc
run her aground in Tucker's Town Bay, where she
lays broadside to shore. Means are being promptly
taken to save the cargo-which consists of 3602 bales
cotton. It is to be hoped that the weather may prove
favorable so that it will all be secured.-Agent, John
S. Darrell.
Some four or five men, including, we are told, the
mate and chief engineer, landed in one of the Kate's
boats, but so soon as it became known the Health Officer
for the West End, Dr. Butterfield, had them placed in
Quarantine on Darrell's Island, as the Kate was from a
port within the prescribed quarantine limits. The
men, we are told, state that they had taken the boat
with the view to assist in saving the vessel; but that
the tow rope broke and they were compelled to make
for the shore. The belief is that they abandoned the
ship supposing she was sinking.

Major-General W. Wilby, C.B., has been ap-
pointed to the command of the troops in Ceylon.
General Wilby has seen much active service. Tak-
ing. part in the Crimean War, he felt the hardships
of that mis-managed business, and survived to be
present at the fall of Sebastopol. Later on, while
in command of the 4th Foot, he was detailed for
the Abyssinian campaign as Brigadier-General,
and, at the head of the leading division, went first
into Magdala.

ARRIVAL OF

Sffiarpm ,rf Norm w


AT HALIFAX.

The appointment of the Marquis of Lorne to the
Office of Governor-General of Canada, because of
his alliance with the Royal Family, is a happy
move, highly characteristic of such a man as Lord
Beaconsfield whose policy, designated Imperialism,
aims at the uniting and consolidating of British in-
terests. The feeling of loyalty throughout Canada,
and the devotion of the people to the Queen are
much more demonstrative than in the United King-
dom itself, and not surpassed in intensity in any
other colony. The appearance then in Canada of
one of Her Majesty's daughters cannot fail to be
gratifying to the people of the Dominion at large,
From the Atlantic to the Pacific, through the at
Present sparsely populated territory. Whether Her
Royal Highness the Princess Louise will re-echo
the sentiment of the great Cesar Better be first
in this little Iberian Village than Second at Rome"
may be doubted. Her rank and extraction give
her in a new and wide field the first rank-" prima
inter minbres." Her influence and example will
largely affect the present and rising generations,
and all will desire that the highest expectations
formed of other residence in Canada may be fully
realized. To the people of the United States also
the appointment is complimentary. The Queen
has deservedly occupied a high place in the esteem
of the people of the neighboring republic. And,
despite the absence of rank among the people, as in
European countries, there is a deep seated regard
for the old nobility, especially if position and influ-
t ence are inherent. The Princess Louise will be re-
, ceived with becoming dignity and. cordiality by the
, American people, and in her person may be done
t much to consolidate the bond between the United
States and Great Britain. The appointment was a
wise one, as far as the Prime Minister was concerned,
with the Princess herself largely rests the success
r of the policy which prompted it. Isolation for the
t time being from the associations of Home, with all
its manifold attractions, may make a residence in Ca-
nada somewhat of a self sacrifice. But that feeling
will give way as an acquaintance with the country
is made, and a personal interest is taken in its af-
fairs and its welfare. It ha&3 always been a char-
acteristic of the British people for their leading ele-
ments to toil abroad and in the Colonies contentedly
even under adverse circumstances, and it is to this
fact that British interests all over the globe have
been so widely advanced.
The Marquis of Lorne is to a certain extent over-
shadowed by the prestige of the Princess Louise.
In his official capacity, his time will be actively
; taken up and his talents fully tested. The task be-
. fore him is no light one, no sinecure, as the political
elements now are in Canada. And he moreover suc-
ceeds a good tactician, and a deservedly popular
administrator as Lord Dufferin certainly proved
himself. While the Princess Louise will discharge
essential social duties, the Marquis will be spec-
ially occupied with the official requirements of
his appointment.
On Saturday night, the 23rd Novr., the Sarmatian
I entered Halifax harbour after a rough voyage, in a
disagreeable mist and running sea. Vice-Admiral
Inglefield went out at 10 a.m. with the Bellerophon,
Black Prince, Rover, Argus and Pert, but returned
at 3-30 p.m., owing to the thickness of the weather
and heavy sea. So that the Naval Demonstra-
tion of meeting The Sarmatian and accompanying
her into Port was not carried out. The Alpha
sailed at noon on Monday. The official landing
was to take place from the Dockyard at 1-30 p.m.,
the day promised well, the party to land in the Duke
of Edinburgh's barge, through an avenue of oars
along the guard of boats and salutes, mannedyards,
displ.iys of' bunting, &c. The procession was to pass
up to the Intercolonial Station and through Bruns-
wick and connecting streets, South to the Province
Building, where, in the Assembly Chaamber,the Mar-
quis would be sworn in as Governor General, and
the address of the City of Halifax would be present-
ed. The procession would then be reformed and
march South, when the distinguished Party would
return North to Admiralty House. In the evening
the Marquis and Princess were to dine with Lieut.-
Governor A. G. Archibald at Government House,
and the same evening at 9"30 p.m., a Drawing
Room would be held. The people of Halifax
made extensive preparations, arches of various de-
signs had been erected by the two services, the
Government, the City, the National and other so-
cieties and by the public spirit of private citizens
here and there while bunting was everywhere pro-
fusely displayed and a general illumination and
bon fires were to follow. Landing at Halifax
where her grandfather resided for six years as Com-
mander of the forces, and where some souvenirs of
the Duke of Kent, such as the old Town Clock, are
still to be seen, Her Royal Highness the Princess
Louise may feel that after all she is treading on a
sort of paternal soil, which the genius of our com-
mon country has so marvellously improved.

purpose of nominating a representative for said
Parish in the General Assembly, in the room of
Samuel Saltus, Esqr., resigned. Charles Chisholm
Keane, Esqr., has been by unanimous consent
named for the important position and we presume
there will be no other nomination.

THE GARRISON SPORTs.-The annual Sports of
the first battalion Nineteenth Regiment, which came
off yesterday in a field belonging to Thomas F. J.
Tucker, Esqr., near Prospect, was quite a success.
The weather was very fine and the attendance of
ladies and gentlemen from all parts of the Island,
unusually large. We hope to be able to give full
particulars of these sports in our next issue.

We notice by the Halifax papers, that the Black
Prince, Captain H. R. H. the Duke of Edinburgh,
had been ordered home, and that she would proba-
bly leave Halifax for England on Thursday last,
the 27th ultimo; and as the Marquis of Lorne
would leave Halifax for Ottawa on the 26th, it is
presumed that H. M. S. Bellerophon, bearing the
Flag of Vice-Admiral Sir Edward A. Inglefield,
K.C.B., F.R.S., the Naval Commander-in-Chief on
this station, would leave Halifax for Bermuda
on Thursday, and consequently may be expected to
arrive here this afternoon or to-morrow morning.


Arrival of the Fnglish lail of the
12th ultimo.
The Royal Mail Steamer Alpha, Captain Crowell,
from Halifax, with the English Mail of the 12th
November, arrived at St. Georges on Friday last,
and left on the following morning for St. Thomas.
We are indebted to Captain Crowell and other
friends for Halifax papers of the 25th ultimo. The
day the Alpha left that port.
These papers furnish us with three highly impor-
tant items of information. First, the safe arrival at
Halifax of the Princess Louise and the Marquis of
Lorne. Second, the crossing of the Afghanistan
frontier by the English troops, and the commence-
ment of a war with the Afghans; and thirdly, the
payment of the Fishery Award by the United States
Government. On each of these several important
events some particulars will be found in our co-
lumns to-day.

THE SARMATIAN'S VOYAGE.
The Sarmatian left Liverpool'at 12 minutes past
noon on Thursday, November 14tb, with the follow-
ing passengers,-
H. R. H. Princess Louise.
The Most Noble the Marquis of Lorne.
Lady Sophia Macknamara.
Hon. Mrs. Moreton.
Miss Moreton.
Major DeWinton, Private Secretary.
Mrs. DeWinton.
Miss DeWinton.
Miss V. DeWinton.
Master DeWinton.
Colonel McNeil.
Hon. C. Harboard, A. P. C.
Capt. Chater.
Dr. Andrew Clark.
Miss Bogle.
Mr. Sydney Hall
And 23 servants.
The weather was fine at the time of departure
from Liverpool with a light N.N.E. breeze and
continued so throughout the night and part of the
next day.
Saturday, 16th. After leaving Moville the Sar-
matian experienced heavy weather from the N.E.
which continued throughout Friday night and part
of Saturday. The Ship rolled and pitched heavily
and took in large bodies of water. The log showed
a run of only 140 miles, which in itself was an in-
dication of the bard weather the ship had expe-
Sienced.
The Yankee Notion Proves a Failure.-The Vice-
Regal apartments in the Sarmatian were fitted with
patent self-adjusting beds, an American invention,
designed to make the bed adapt itself to every mo-
tion of the vessel, and thus, by preventing the usual
pitch and roll,isecurir'g exemption from seasickness.
This invention was so highly thought of that it was
introduced into the ship at considerable expense,
The usual state rooms being too small for the ope-
ration of the invention partitions were removed and
larger rooms made. After all these preparations
the invention proved a failure and the Vice-Regal
party were glad to abandon the self-adjusting in-
stitutions and resort to the old-fashioned berths.
Sunday on the Sarmatian.-On Sunday, 17tb, the
Sarmatian ran into finer weather, the sea mode-
rated, and the ship made good speed. The wind
was from N.N.E. to N.N.W., a light breeze, and
the sky cloudy. Divine service was held in the
saloon. The Marquis attended.
The Princess Suffers from Sea Sickness.-Tho
Princess was not present at the service. She had
suffered severely from sea sickness during the
heavy weather of the previous two days and was
confined to her room. The Sunday log was 331
miles.
On Monday morning, 18tb, there was a strong
breeze from S. W., with squalls. As the morning
wore on the squalls increased. By noon the gall
had risen to a hurricane, which continued in thb
afternoon. In this storm the vessel suffered her
only damage. The fierce gale blew away the main
trysail and foretopsail. There was also a heavy
cross sea which broke over the ship fore and aft.
A sea stove in the smoking room. The ship rolled
and pitched heavily, and all on board suffered in
consequence. This was the worst day of the voy-
age. About 3 p.m. the gale began to break. The
log showed a run of 311 miles.
Tuesday, 19th. Though the force of the gale had
passed away there was a strong wind throughout
Monday night and on Tuesday morning, and the
sea ran very high. The wind fell to a fresh breeze
towards evening. The day's run was 174 miles.
Bagpipes on the Ocean.-The Marquis was on
deck on Tuesday with his piper, who played for
some ti ne.
The Princess Better.-On Wednesday, 20th, the
Princess was better so far as the sea sickness was
concerned, but complained of a slight throat affec-
tion. The day was cloudy with a moderate breeze
from the S.E., and the Sarmatian, carrying all sail,
made rapid progress. The piper was again on
deck with the Marquis, and at the request of the
Princess a sketch of the piper was made by Mr.
Sydney Hall, the artist of the party. The. log
showed the greatest speed attained on the voyage
-the distance run being 835 miles.
Thursday, 21st, was a moderate day, cloudy
throughout, with a fresh S.E. breeze in the morning,
increasing in the afternoon. The evening was
hazy, with rain at times. During the day the
Marquis and several others of the party amused
themselves fishing for sea gulls. The day's run
was 322 miles
On Friday, 22nd, the wind continued from S. E.
to N.W., cloudy throughout the day. 310 miles.
Saturday, 23rd, was hazy, with a. strong breeze


and a good deal of fog. It was on that day, the
last of the voyage, that the Princess appeared on
deck for the first time, and then she only remained
a few minutes. As the ship was approaching the
coast a sharp lookout was kept for H. M. S. Sirius,
the Marquis having been informed by telegraph,
before leaving England, that she would cruise off
the coast to meet him. But no sign of the Sirius
could be seen. Neither could any pilot boat be
found when the time to take a pilot arrived. The
Ship was off Sambro at 6 p.m., and put out to sea
again. After firing guns and throwing up rockets,
and waiting some time longer for a pilot and finding
none, Captain Aird determined to act as his own
pilot, and come into port. This determination he
carried out successfully, and about 10 o'clock the
Sarmatian cast anchor between McNab's Island
and George's Island.
The Health of the Party.-Her Royal Highness
Princess Louise suffered severely during the voy-
age, but she is now convalescent, and it is confi-
dently expected that she will speedily recover her
accustomed good health. The rest of the party are
well. The Marquis caught a slight cold while on
deck on -.. urday-a gentle reminder of the effects
of a Nova Scotia fog-but this is not counted as a
serious matter.
Shortly after the Sarmatian anchored H R. H,
the Duke of Edinburgh visited heroin a cutter from
the Black Prince and spent some time on board.

THE FISHERY AWARD PAID.
We learn from Washington, via Halifax, that on
the 21st ultimo, the American Minister, Mr.
Welsh, paid over to Her Majesty's Government the
fisheries award by a draft of $5,500,000. So the
Fishery troubles are settled for the present.
The Royal Standard is to be, by Her Majesty's
consent, hoisted on Government House, Ottawa,
whenever Her Royal Highness the Princess Louise
is in residence,


THE AFGHAN WAR.
LAHORE, NO. 022. -The proclamation of the Vice-
roy of India recoAnts the history of the relations be-
tween India and Akfhanistan during the last ten years.
It says that, in return for kindness, by actions and
intentions, as witnessed by the Ameer's reception at
Umballab, by material aid afforded him from time to
time, and by free comhieree accorded to the Afghans,
we gained only ill-will ond discourtesy. The Ameer
openly and assiduously attempts, by words and deeds,
to stir up religious hatred,' nd bring about a war
upon the British Empire in Iii-ia, and meets our at-
tempts to promote friendly relations with open in-
dignity and defiance. The Ameer- mistaking for
weakness the long forbearance of t im British Gov-
ernment, thus deliberately incurred its J4st resent-
ment. With the Serdars and people of A ghauistan
the Indian Government has no quarrel, als tey have
given no offence. The independence of Afghaist
will be respected, but the Government of India
not tolerate that any other power should inter.
with the internal affairs of Afghanistan. Upon
Ameer, Shere Ali, alone rests the responsibility
having exchanged the friendship for the hostility
the Empress of India.
THE FIRST BATTLE OF THE CAMPAIGN AT M
JID FORT.
KHYBER PASS, (afternoon), Nov. 21.-At da
break General Brown stood on a little plain beyond
Jamrood watching the march to the front. A pick
of the enemy's cavalry was visible on the top of the
Shagai ridge beyond range. The advance guard
marched briskly on, and presently rested on the
height whence, at 10 o'clock, a skirmishing fire,
opened on the enemy's piquet. The latter retired
after a desultory reply, our forces pressing on and
occasionally firing, reached Shagai ridge, whence Ali
Musjid was visible. At noon, Ali Musjid fired the
first shell, which burst in the air. The second
shell flew over the flagstaff on Shagai ridge, and
fell, without bursting, beyond.
A long halt was necessary to allow a heavy bat-
tery to come up, and the interval was utilized by the
horse artillery in placing guns on the height to our
right. Fort Ali Musjid replied and firing became
somewhat brisk. Meanwhile firing was heard to
the left of the Fort Ali Musjid, and some persons
conjectured that it was McPherson's turning move.
ment on our right coming into operation; but Afghans
about the fort held their ground although thus threat.
ened on the flank and front.
The Afghans replied with spirit from Ali Musjid
at first but afterwards slackly, At one o'clock
pounders reached the scene, as also mageoaiss nine
pounders. The Horse guns then moved off the ridge
and gave place to the nine pounder battery, while
the forty pounders played against the right of the
Afghan position. The Afghan guns slowly but
steadily replied, making good practice especially
from their seven pounders in the central bastion.
About 2 o'clock two forty pounder shells crashed
into the central bastion and crumbled a great por.
tion of it apparently dismounting the gun which had
been so stubborn.
Soon after 2 o'clock the infantry advanced briskly.
The 4th Brigade took the left slope of the valley,
pressing on through rocks towards Fort Ali Musjid
while the 3rd Brigade took the right side. When
the last rocky ridge on the left slope was cross-
ed a rocky plateau followed nearly up to the foot of
Ali Musjid rock. The skirmishers pushed on steadi.
ly, firing briskly, and evoking a sharp reply from the
enemy, who were studding the ;rock strewn slopes.
Meanwhile, Manderson's battery, moving on along
the bed of the stream, had come into action. Four
guns previously silenced came again into action, and
the enemy developed guns in new places.
In view of the expected co-op-ration from.two
brigades despatched on a turning movement, and the
sun setting while as yet much had to be done, the
operations were reluctantly suspended till.to-mor-
row, precautions being taken to protect our positions,
and the troops bivouacking where they stood.
On our left the third brigade had gained a position
very close to the right flank of Ali Musjid, and indeed
they were almost within storming distance.
. LONDON, Nov. 22.-The "Advertiser" says a pri-
vate telegram received in London estimated the
killed and wounded in the operations in the Khyber
Pass at 300.
FURTHER PARTICULARS EVACUATION OF ALl
MUSJID.
KHYBER PASS, Nov. 22, P.M.-An advanced de-
tachment of the 3rd Brigade moved forward until
they found themselves confronted by lines of en-
trenchments. At dusk, when retiring in accord-
ance with orders, they were severely handled.
Major Birch, who commanded, and Lieutenant
Fitzgerald, were killed, and a lieutenant and over
twenty seapoys and four artillerymen were wounded.
A despatch dated Jimrood, Friday, says the gar-
rison of Ali Musjid bolted precipitately, leaving arms,
food, twenty-one cannon, and forty or fifty wounded.
A considerable number of prisoners have been taken
and it is reported that the Afghan commander is
among them.
It is believed the Afghan's are not in a condition
to make a further resistance.
THE BRITISH FORCES ADVANCING.
LAHORE, Nov. 23.-The column of British army
advancing into Afghanistan, by way of Quettah, has
occupied, without resistance, Calad Sibi, within the
Ameer's territory, due east of Dazart.
A ROW IN THE CABINET.
LONDON, Nov. 23-The British Parliamemt will
be summoned on the 5th Deer. This decision is the
result of a row in the Cabinet. It is stated that the
real cause of the stubborn opposition to the Premier,
is that his colleagues are afraid to give in any further
to his policy. The Queen will sit in Council on
Wednesday, at which the date of assembling will be
fixed. It is probablethe session will last a fortnight.


It is announced that Lord Lawrence's Afghancom-
mittee have resolved to organize themselves on a per-
maneun basis and publish a statement of their views.
The Manchester "Guardian's" London corres-
pondent telegraphs as follows-'" The Cabinet Coun-
cil yesterday was the scene of a severer conflict be-
tween ministers of different shades of opinion, than
had taken place since the departure of Derby from
the Ministry. It was whispered three weeks ago
that differences of opinion were rising on the Afghan
question. The issue of the ultimatum is now be-
lieved to have been the result of the compromise, for
the purpose of conciliating the more pacific section
of the Cabinet. There was at the same time a
rumor of an intention to summon Parliament so as
to meet the scruples of some of the Ministers on
the constitutional question involved in the war.
That party to-day carriedits object. Its chief mem-
bers are pointed out by report as Northcote and
Richard!Ashton Cross, Home Secretary, who also re-
ceived considerable amount of 'support from Salis-
bury."
PROBABLE RUSSIAN POLICY.
LONDON, Nov. 23.-The Berlin "National Zei-
tung" says, respecting the policy of the Russians in
regard to war in Afghanistan, that Russia, being sa-
tisfied that the war must result in a British victory,
does not contemplate intervention or interference
while hostilities last ; but intends to claim a voice in
the settlement of the terms of peace. It bases its
claims upon the announcement that rectification of
Indo-Afghan frontier is proposed, which the Gov-
ernment of the Czar is not prepared to submit to,
Without previous understanding between Englaud
and Russia. lRussia will not consent to annexation
or destruction of Afghanistan, nor to permanent ac-
quisition by England of positions commanding passes
of Balkha. It is with the view to making its voice
heard at the conclusion of war, that Russia ordered
Col. Lomakine to push on with his troops now
stationed on the Attnek to Narhghab; and contin-
gent now stationed at Samarcand, has been directed
to continue its march.








RERMTUDA BOYAL GAZETTE.


From our Special Sporting Correspondent.
e, SIR.,-Now that all the excitement of getting ones
own horse into condition and seeing the galloping on
the race course is over, I feel that I can write with a
calm and tranquil mind. My horse and all the others
that are going to run are fully wound up; some
have had a turn or two more than others, but I can
vouch for the good condition, if not for the racing
appearance, of most of the entries-and if our first
Winter meeting is not a success, well, I'll eat my
hat. The entries for some of the races run into
double figures, and if we only have a fine day we
are sure of a meeting that will eclipse all former
ones.
Harking back to Thursday last, I must give you
a ftlw lines on our run of that day. The meet was
at the usual hour, viz., 3 p.m., but I stupidly for-
got about the late change of time, and so, when the
hunt began, I had only just passed Warwick, and
on arriving at the rendezvous I was informed by an
intelligent native that the master had started by
himself about 5 minutes before, so off I went in
pursuit. Fortunately the scent was good so I
pounded away at a fair pace, jumping a couple of
rasping stone walls and others of a less formidable
appearance, till at last I saw our master's hat up in
the air as he rose over a fence. A couple of fields
ahead. I shouted at him as loud as I could wait
for Tally Ho," for a stern chase is a long one, and I
was beginning to get blown, but he did not pull up.
He told me afterwards that he did not know it was
me, but I don't believe he could stop his horse.
We had passed Warwick Camp when I joined him
'with two hard riders of the 19th who were looking
for the line. Our numbers were shortly afterwards
increased by a couple of sporting Doctors and two
others, so that our field looked quite respectable in
numbers-and in appearance.
We took our old line along the side of the middle
road, after leaving Warwick and legging it along
at a merry pace we crossed that nice green field op-
posite Mr. W. Frith's house negotiated his double
satisfactorily, jumped the wall at the side of the
house and then got into the road, turned through a
gateway with a small rail across it and then raced
for the big wall that surrounds the Gardens of
Bel Air. It was a FAIR UNT, but our jumping
Doctor riding with VIGOR beat us all by the length
of a STREET. We jumped the usual little fences for
the amusement of the ladies who, considering the
weather, mustered in force. Our host with his usual
kindness provided us with meat and drink, and, as
a rider who was very wet and looked most uncom-
fortable 'observed, to keep our spirits up we poured
the spirits down.
Now then, Sir, with your permission we will pro-
ceed 'o try our luck in the selection of some win-
ners for Wednesday.
The ball will be set rolling, or rather the bell
will be set ringing, at noon for the Polo Stakes, for
which there are five entries, and I find it difficult
to put my finger on the winner. Lady Grey is fit
and well and will have the services of Mr. Carpen-
ter, but I do not think that she will repeat last
summers win; I would rather go for Mollie or Eola
and should say the one of these two that has the
best jockey will win.
The next event to be dealt with is the Hunt Cup
which should produce a good race between the
Irishman and the .Soldier. Of the two I take the
former for choice as he is a safe and quick jumper.
The Handicap I am unable to deal with as I have
not seen the weights, but there is a brown mare,
entered, that ran last year, that ought to render a
good account of herself if she gets in at under 11
stone.
The Grand Military is to be the first race after
lutich I believe; perhaps the soldiers don't feel up
to racing till they have been refreshed, or may be
they want to attend to their friends before they at-
tend to themselves; in any case at 2 p.m. we shall
see Dr. Corbett's, Capt. Athorpe's and Mr. Carpen-
ter's colors canter past the stand; I believe Captain
Annesley will ride Mavourneen, Captain Allatt
rides the Comet and our master of course rides for
himself. Of these the Halifax mare is talked of as
something smart but I think Mr. Carpenter will
win this race if he can get rid of the Comet.
For the St. Georges Stakes we should have a
good race. Out of the ten entered I put my finger
on Faerie Queene, Lulu, Dexter and Fanny as
likely to furnish the winner.
The Maiden Stakes should be won by Starlight,
but if he bolts the race will go to St. Georges.
The Planters Stakeis sure to produce a good
finish, and if Soldier and Dexter are up to the mark
I cannot see what is to beat them.
The Somers Hurdle race is set last for decision
and will come off at 4 p.m. There are ten entries
and I find it difficult to spot the right one. The
good mare Faerie Queene is a little too heavily
treated and I do not think she will carry her bur-
den first past the post in this race. Dexter, Sol-
dier, Fanny and Faugh-a-Ballagh all have to carry
a penalty, but as Fanny also gets an allowance of
10 lbs. for her height she ought to pull her backers
through.
Tendering my thanks to the Honorary Secretary
and the Stewards, more especially Dr. Park Tucker,
Dr. Sinclair and Captain Allatt, all of whom have
given me information which their experience in
these matters renders valuable, I look forward to
Wednesday, 4th December, 1878, as likely to be a red
letter day to all of us not excepting
TALLY HO.
Hamilton, 2nd December, 1878.

A NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNINrG.-As several
conflicting reports are in circulation respecting the
circumstance alluded to below, perhaps a few words
of truth may set some minds at rest. At 1"30 on


the afternoon of Wednesday, 6th Nov., 1878, when
the Schr. Meteor was on a voyage from Bermuda to
Turks' Islands, two of the female passengers were
lying on the lee side of the quarter deck, close to
the rail, which is a low one; when a. sea topped
the weather quarter, causing a little to fall on deck
and run to leeward. The two passengers alluded
to. jumped up, but the vessel making a lee lurch at
the time Miss Effie Mills lost her balance and fell
over the rail into the sea. The vessel was running
at the time 6 or 7 knots, with squaresail set. The
Captain immediately gave orders to shorten sail.
The boat was taken out and three hands jumped
in, and p.'Ted hard, to the rescue, (the mate having
previously gone aloft to keep an eye on the poor
girl) the vessel was then wore round and stoodlin
the direction of the boat, and in less than half an
hour the girl was safe on board, the boat in, and the
vessel again on her way with all sail set. The girl
was of course immediately cared for by the Captain
and passengers and next morning when "land" was
cried out, she came on deck looking as happy and
cheerful as if nothing had happened. Miss Mills
had, in one hand when she fell over, a pillow, and
whilst in the water, she held it with a firm grasp a
little below her chin, which buoyed her up till the
boat reached her; and although it was rather rough
at the time she said she had swallowed very little
water. Trusting I have not trespassed on your time
and space, ...

1878. OBSERVER.


Halifax has, it seems, quite a number of expert
pickpocket visitors. On one morning the police took
up twenty of these gentry, and many others are
being "shadowed." On one of the detained visitors
was found a watch which had been picked from a
gentleman's pocket a few hours only before. The
Magistrate shocked his nerves when he told him
he would probably be transported for 14 years for
that crime.

THE THEATRICALS AT IRELAND,
25TH NOVEMBER.
For a few moments let the Muse engage
To paint the humours of our Island stage,
To give each actor his due need of praise,
And with judicious hands allot the bays.
High have they soared, nor have they sought in vain
With generous zeal, our willing praise to gain,
To those, who with brave hearts have boldly striven,
The laurel garlands of success are given.
First, Place aur dames, and who may take the place
Of honour from that fair warmhearted lass,
Who loving nobly, makes a gallant fight,
Tender and true, againstt fortune's fiercest spite.
Played with a care, artistic and refined,
Pathos and humour gracefully combined,
Self totally forgotten in her part,
A lovely votary of a noble art,
Fairly enchanted by her charms and skill,
The actress causes every art to thrill,
Her audience share her sorrows, hopes and fears
And grant her-better than applause-their tears.
The lid from Lancashire next meets our gaze,
Portrayed with skill, which wins the highest praise,
A burly son of our tough northern clime,
Honest, though branded with a hideous crime,
He keeps our sympathy, we love his pluck,
We follow closely all his turns of luck.
So true to nature have they played their parts
Bob and his gentle May win all our hearts.
The Tiyer next, the demon tempter, who
Is painted well in tints of deepest hue,
Fierce, unrelenting, pitiless and cold,
He wins our plaudits, though he'd flimp our gold.
Hawkshaw his stubborn foe, whose glittering eye
Right through the nether mill-stone may descry,
Pursues him, tracks him, haunts him, tilLat last.
He sates his vengeance for .the dreadful past.
But now the Muse of Comedy appears,
As the hoarse son of Shylock grates our ears,
Most nobly counterfeited is he too,
A sausage scorning, misbelieving Jew.
The lesser lights are skilfully portrayed,
And to the Drama's action lend good aid,
The fair dans3use, who, acted with much grace,
In all her trials wears a smiling face,
Her only Jones, who fools exceeding well,
And excellently plays the broke'down swell;
Granny the garrulous, and her graceless boy
Perversely fated ever to annoy,
But still who in the end shows real grit
And in two senses makes a regular hit.
Nor must we scorn the base mechanic's arl,
For it too in the Drama plays its part,
The limner's brush is weilded with good will
And shows brave tokens of his power and skill.
Besides, for amateurs, the highest praise.
Between s he acts there are no long delay,
Care and arrangement everywhere prevails
And scenes are handled like a frigate's sails.
Long may the Drama flourish, may it yield,
Slill fairer laurels in a ,icher field,
Talents and charms so rare must n-:'r r.-s',
But ever onwards venture with fre-h zest.

The report of the investigation held by order of
the Board of Trade, Lo_-ou, into the circumstances
attending the collision in the River Thames, be-
tween the Princess Alice" with an excursion party
on board, and the Bywell Castle," a collier, in
light ballast trim, whereby the former was sunk
and upwards of 600 persons lost their lives-has
been published. It states that it finds the cause of
the said casualty was the breach of Rule 29 of the
Thames Conservancy Regulations by the "Princess
Alice" not porting her helm when she came end on
the "Bywell Castle," a vessel coming in the oppo-
site direction. The Court is also of opinion that
all parties shall pay their own costs.

A Resolve to pay to Charles C. Keane, Coroner,
the sum of &2 2/0, being an amount incurred by
him for carriage hire in the performance of his
duty-was brought up from the House of Assembly
and read a 1st time.
The following Messages from His Excellency the
Governor, were delivered by the Colonial Secre-
tary, viz:-
(No. 30.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in. Chief.
The Governor has the honor to.forward to the
Honorable the Legislative Council a copy of the
Report otthe Committee appointed to examine the
Postmaster General's Accounts for the Quarter
ending on the 30th September, 1878.
Mount Langton, 23rd November, 1878.
(No. 81.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor hasthe honor to point out to the
Honorable the Legislative Council that in his Mes-
sage Number 11 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.
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 committed,
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-
cordedht hat 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 the Legislative Coun-
cil that in the last Account furnished by the Crown
Agents for the Colonies, viz.:-that for the Quar-
ter ending 80th 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 fdr 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.
