A nicer day for racing it would have been hard

0-08 combined with the excellent programme, induced
0-65 hundreds to attend and they certainly witnessed
0"01 some capital racing as the majority of the events
0'03 were well contested. The Course was in good order
0"00 and the enclosure and stands were filled with the
0"26 fashion and elite of the Island. The dresses and
0'00 toilettes of the ladies were in many instances elegant

popularity of short skirts. It must be quite impos-
sible to carry a train and take an interest in the
4*g racing, the weariness of holding it up would be
'* unendurable for any length of time and a short
costume is so much more appropriate.

As in his previous race Dexter led the way at his

Jack ran very wide, so that when half the j ourney was
completed there were only two in it, Dexter leading
the Queene by a couple of lengths, Souvenir, Lulu,

OPENING OF THE IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.-THE
QUEEN'S SPEECHI._-We were fortunate in getting
from a friend in New York a copy of the 3rd edi-
tion of the New York Commercial Advertiser, of the
5th inst. which enables us to present our readers to-
day with the substance of Her Majesty's Speech at
the op-n' -: of Parliament on Thursday last-and of
General Roberts' report of his victory over the
Ameer's forces, and of his capturing Peiwar-Khotal
and all the Afghan cannon. The enemy's loss
was heavy. The British had 80 killed and wound-
ed. Captain Kelso of the Artillery, and Major An-
derson, of the Pioneers, are among the killed.
It is said that the British have encountered larger
forces of the enemy than they expected, and that
serious fighting will have to take place before the
Anglo-Indian columns can get near Cabul. It is
stated by the London Times that operations
will not be pushed very far, for the "Thunderer"
declares that as soon as the Afghan border shall
have been occupied, "the Ministry's main object
will be secured."
According to the cable despatches, the leaders of
the opposition will endeavor, during the extra ses-
sion of Parliament which has just opened, to forget
their partisan rancor against the BEAOONSFIELD
Cabinet, and will vote all necessary funds for the
Afghanistan c:.mp.,i-7n It is probable, however,
that the session will not be as tame as the Marquis
of HARRINGTON and Mr. GLADSTONE affect to declare
it will be, with respect to purely personal and par.
tisan quarrels.

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.

OPENING OF THE IMPERIAL PARLIA-
MENT.-HOPEFUL RESULTS EXPECTED
FROM THE BERLIN TREATY.
LONDON, Dec. 5.-Parliament convened in session
to-day. The Queen's speech, read in the House of
Lords, was unusually short. Her Majesty regrets
that she has been compelled to summon Parliament
at a date earlier than usual, but the action of the
Ameer of Afghanistan compelled her to send an ex-
pedition into-bis territory, and she had taken the
earliest opportunity of calling Parliament together,
and making to it the communication required by
law. The papers on the subject will be laid before
Parliament. Assurances from all foreign powers
are friendly, and she has every reason to believe
that the arrangements for the pacification of Europe,
made by the Treaty of Berlin, will be satisfactorily
carried out. The estimates for the ensuing year
will in due time be submitted to the House of Com-
mons. She proposes that after full deliberation
upon the matters which have led her to anticipate
Parliament's usual time of meeting, and after a
suitable recess, it should proceed to the considerat-
ion of various measures for the public benefit, which
will then be laid before it.

THE EXPENSE OF THE AFGHAN WAR.
LONDON, Dec. 5.-5 P. M.-In the House of Com-
mons, this afternoon, [Hon. Edward Stanhope, Und-
er Secretary of State for India, gave notice that he
would, on Monday next, submit a motion that the
expenses of the Af ,inn war be defrayed from the
Indian revenue, and Mr. Henry Fawcett (Liberal
member for Hackney) gave further notice that he
would oppose Mr. Stanhope's motion.

GENERAL ROBERTS' REPORT OF THE ENGAGEMENT.
-LAHORE, Dec. 5-12-30 P. M.-General Roberts
Stelegraphs from Peiwar-Khotal, under date of Dec.
83, as follows : During the night of Deer. 1 the
Afghan position was turned by a flank march over
the Spengwai Pass. We surprised the enemy at
daybreak of the 2nd inst., when the Seventy-second
Highlanders and Fifth Goorkhas gallantry drove
the Afghans from several positions. They after-
wards endeavored to reach Peiwar-Khotal, but the
Assault could not be delivered on that side. We
then threatened the enemy in the rear, and attack-
Sed and carried Peiwar-Kbotal at about four o'clock
in the afternoon.
S The enemy had, on the previous evening, received
reinforcements of four regiments. They fought
desperately. Their artillery was well served; their
* defeat, however, was complete. We captured eigh-


teen guns and a large quantity of ammunition.
Our loss was moderate, considering the number of
our opponents and the difficult nature of the coun-
t try. Major Anderson, of the Pioneers (not Captain
Anderson), was killed. General Cobbe and Lieut.
Munro, of the Seventy-second Highlanders, were
wounded. Our men behaved admirably. We shall
move toward the Shutir-garden Pass on Thursday,
the 5th instant.
The London Times Lahore despatch say that an
2 advance upon Candabar will probably be impossible
this year, on account of the difficulties of transpor-
tation. It is believed that there is no Afghan force
between Dakka and Cabul, and that General
Brown will occupy Jelallabad. "

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR MR. EDITOR,-My good man, finding he
has no time to write himself, and not liking to dis-
Sappoint your readers or break his promise of fur-
Snishing you with a description of the dresses worn
by the ladies in the Grand Stand on the Race day,
has begged me to write myself. Of course you
know that if he had written himself he would have
obtained all his information from me, for men are
so stupid in that way they can never tell you what
colored dress Mrs. A had on or how Mrs. B's hair
3 was dressed, whether Miss C had a lace Fichu
trimmed with two rows of lace with a plaiting of
D crepe lisse or only one row of lace.
Y Well, to begin at the bonnets. One of the most
a stylish on the course was of the coarse English
- straw plaited so that a succession of tiny points
d appears in the braid, a most effective and pretty
- head-dress. The next mosl noticeable was a Tus-
e can straw, the trimmings consisting of a silk ruche
in imitation of marabout feathers, and the ribbon
, is.reversible or double faced. The ruche is then
continued at the back of the bonnet. One style of
hat, too, was very becoming to the wearer; it was
1 a white straw with the under part of the brim
being covered with some silk of the same colour
2 as the costume with which the hat was worn, the


ribbon and feather also matching. Many of the i
modes of dressing the hair were very pretty and
becoming. How thankful we women ought to be I
for the change of taste which leaves us the happy
wearers of our own hair and also permits those whose
hair is grey to shew it, and be proud of it. Not
many years ago poor mamma and grandmamma
were obliged to shave off the piteous grey locks and
don the ugly black or brown front demanded by
fashion; once upon a time, too, the ladies head-
dresses were so high that a flight of steps were
required by which the barber had to climb up to
dress the hair when the wearer was sitting down.
This preposterous erection remained in statu quo for
three weeks or a month before being dressed again.
Perhaps one of the best dressed ladies wore a
light brown or dust-colored costume with claret-
colored bows to relieve it. Another becoming dress
was a dark blue cloth trimmed with braid carried
in a point down the back, also round the sleeves,
which are in the dolman form; the visit was edged
with fancy fringe. One lady wore a costume of
brown cashmere covered with brading and hang-
ing buttons over a brown skirt with a flounce with
a gathered heading. One more also caught my eye
which I trust is worthy of notice: this was a dress
made of dark claret serge with the skirt kilted, the
overskirt being Laveuse in front and slightly drap-
ed at the back, being also trimmed with Mephisto-
pheles braid. The bodice had a yoke both at the
back and front and trimmed with braid; sleeves
with plaited cuff, and all was very prettily set off
by a Russian leather band round the waist. But if
I was to go on describing all the pretty and elabo-
rate costumes I saw I should take up by far too
much of your valuable paper, so I shall leave your
readers to imagine the rest.

ANOTHERGLASGOW FAILURE.
The Caledonian Bank, of Glasgow, has concluded
to go into liquidation, in consequence of its holding
some of the stock of the City of Glasgow Bank.
The other Scotch banks will take the Caledonian's
notes and pay its depositors.

About 100,000 cases of Yellow Fever are supposed
to have occurred the past summer in the States of
Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, of which
about 20,000 have proved fatal-so says the Presi-
dent's Message.

[The following Statements on the Coal trade
from two journals representing opposing interests,
we copy into our Gazette to-day, knowing how
deeply interesting the subject is to many of our
readers.]-Ed. R. G.
AS TO A COMBINATION.

From the New York Coal Trade Journal, Dec. 4.
We gave in our last review the essence of the
result arrived at, by the Lehigh operators at Bethle-
hem on Tuesday of last week. We place on record
the following resolutions:--
Resolved. That the allotment of tonnage for 1878
not being satisfactory to the Lehigh Valley interest
in the present arrangement ceases December 21,
1878.
Resolved. That we believe the best interests of
the trade demand that some arrangement be made
for the Government of the trade for the year 1879
by which the production of coal shall be restricted
to the demand, upon an equitable basis satisfactory
to all parties interested.
Resolved. That the present committee be conti-
nued to negotiate and arrange for temporary stop-
pages after January 1st, 1879.
As is known this result was like a wet blanket,
on the possible formation of a new combination.
In any event the market will no doubt take a
largely increased quantity of coal during the year
1879, than has been forwarded this year, and this
fact should be borne in mind, in making up the
proportions; the effect of the large quantity carried
over last season, has been nullified bythe reductioh-
thi year and the coming season's traffic will be
fully equal to the amount done in 1877.
The Board of Control meeting on to-morrow, is
looked forward to by many of the most sanguine
I advocates of a combination, as the :time when the
foundation of the programme for next year's busi-
ness will be laid. Inasmuch as the line trade of
any one company cannot be interfered with by the
others, why is it not possible to arrange the pro-
portions on the basis of coal to competitive points
only. This will overcome a great deal of the oppo-
sition on the part of the Lehigh operators, who
have all this year claimed that the allotment to
them, left nothing over the demands of their tide
customers, and yet they had to make it 'go-round;'
in doing this they were always short of coal, for


both the line and tide trade.
ANTHRACITE.
From the Engineering and Mining Journal, Nov. 30.
On Tuesday the Scranton sale took place, accor-
ding to the previous announcement, and the result
has been very demoralizing to the trade. We are
informed upon good authority that previous to the
sale it was understood that prices were to be left
to take care of themselves, but that upon the morn-
ing of the sale, a range so low was indicated that
the old forces were called together with the result
of assisting matters to a very great extent, say 25c
to 50c per ton.
The Reading Company, at least, will strongly
insist upon an increased allotment in December,
and probably it will have additional support; but
the Wyoming companies think that the market has
enough coal allotted to meet all the requirements
for the balance of the year, If they should ship
their portion of the increased allotment, there is no
question that the New York market, at least,
would open the new year in a demoralized condi-.
tion. Tl ;s is a very important question and it
will require a large amount of "harmony" to
prevent trouble.
The prospects of a combination for 1879 are by
no means encouraging ; in fact, they are very bad
and on Wall street this opinion seems also to gaie
strength. It is, nevertheless, a very uncertain
thing; and to suit all interests it will probably be
pronounced first favorable and then unfavorabh
several times over, before April 1st. Everything
at present points to ultimate failure.
The production of anthracite coal last week waE
530,569 tons, as against 515,872 tons the previous
f week, and 541,944 tons the corresponding week o
1877. The total production from January 1st t(
November 23rd was 15,328,861 tons, as compare<
r with 17,834,057 tons for the like period of last year
showing a falling off this year of 2,505,196 tons.

THE MARQUIS OF LORNE SWORN INTO
OFFICE.
A BRILLIANT LANDING, PROCESSION AND INAU-
GURATION, FOLLOWED BY A BANQUET AND A
BALL.
BIALIFAX, N,S., Nov. 25.-For two weeks past
the town as been in a commotion preparing for thet
events of to-day and to-morrow. Every train that
has come in has brought loyal Canadians from all
parts of the Dominion enthusiastic in their desire to
properly receive the new Governor. General and his
royal wife. Conspicuous among these subjects of
the Queen have been the Scotch, who feel that the
appointment of the heir to the Argyll dukedom is an
especial honor done to their people and to their part
of the United Kingdom. To-day was the city's
great day. All the decorations have been displayed
to the best advantage, and all the graceful things
which the Haligonians have long been looking to do
have been done.
The morning broke brightly, and as soon as it was
light enough the royal standard could be seen flying
over the Sarmatian, which still lay at her moorings
off George's Island. At 10-30 the ship weighed
anchor and slowly steamed up the harbor. When
she started the salute began from the York redoubt,
which was the signal for the fleet to join in. The
fort and the fleet in unison fired a royal salute of
21 guns. By the time the Sarmatian had got oppo-
site George's Island the salute from that admirable
fort began, and it was finished by the time that she
got opposite the Black Prince, the band of which
truck up GOD Save the Queen," while the tars.
manning the yards, gave three roaring cheers, which
could he heard all along the harbor. The captain's
-gig shot off from the side of the Black Prince, and H.
R. H. the Duke of Edinburgh boarded the Sarma-
tian. As the ship passed the other men of war in
the fleet the men in the yards cheered three times
more, and by 11 o'clock the Sarmatian had reached
a point above the dockyard and opposite the bright
and picturesque little village of Dartmouth, which
nestles under the hills and hugs the water most
affectionately. At this point the anchor was dropped
and the viceregal party walked about deck as they
had done ever since the anchor was weighed, chat-
ting with one another and congratulating themselves
that the worst part of their journey to far-away
Ottawa was almost over. Before the Sarmatian
reached the Black Prince she passed the cable
steamer Minia, which flew the Stars and Stripes
and was profusely decorated with buaning From
the deck of this vessel also went up a cheer that put
even the British men-of-war's men to shame, and
the Princess Louise, with ready tact, expressed her
great pleasure that from beneath the American
colors she had been so royally welcomed to the New
World. At 12-30 the party went below to what
was doubtless their jolliest luncheon since the em-
barkation at Liverpool. Meantime great prepera-
tions were making at the dockyard, where stands
had been erected on either side for the visitors and
correspondents, and where a silk-covered gangway
had been let down to the float below. Either side
of the dock was lined with red coats from the Nine-
ty-seventh Regiment, anrdth yard was lined on one
side by artillery men and on the other by men of the
One Hundred and First Regiment, the Royal Bengal
Fusiliers which has been much reduced by service
in Cyprun. The men wore umbr uuitf)rms and
overcoats instead of the regular scarlet and blue of
the regiment. From 10 o'clock until the landing, an
hour later, the dockyard was a most picturesque
and animated scene. Military and naval officers, in
full uniform, were gathered in the centre, andf at the
head of the gangway and intermingled with them,
were the civic authorities, also in gala dress, inclu-
ding the Premier, Sir John A. Macdonald, and the
Ministers of the Dominion. Sir Patrick McDougal's
carriage was also there in waiting for the Princess
Louise and Lord Lorne, and Sir Patrick's coachman,
with his immense bouquet, put all the other magni-
ficent creatures around him entirely into the shade.
On the gangway was the prettiest part of the pic-
ture, for there stood four young ladies, evidently
selected with a deliberate intention of impressing
upon the Princess the exceeding loveliness of the
women of Canada. The duty of these fascinating
damsels was to present to the Princess a bouquet on
her landing. Miss Mary Archibald, a daughter of
the Lieut.-Governor of Nova Scotia, held the bou
quet. She was dressed charmingly in a delicate hue
of gray, wearing a sort of jacket lined with white
fur, and a gray cap bewitchingly brightened up with
one red rose. At 1 o'clock Vice-Admiral Inglefield
went off in his launch. As he embarked the buglers
on the flagship saluted him and the officer at the
stern of the Vice-Admiral's launch returned the
salute by three times raising his cocked hat. The
viceregal party went over the ship's side to enter the
boats at exactly 1'30, and as soon as the Princess
had set foot on the companion-way to go down, the
great royal standard floating over the Sarmatian was
hauled down and a smaller royal standard was
raised on the barge, the ships of the fleet-meanwhile
firing another royal salute of twenty-one guns. It
really was a very striking ceremonial effect. The
Vice-Admiral's launch went first, leading a naval
procession around the fleet. Following it came
several captains', gigs and then the Black Prince's
barge, in which sat the Marquis of Lorne, the Duke
of Edinburgh and the Princess Louise. The men
had again climbed to the yards of the ships of the
fleet and again they cheered as the little craft bear-
ing the royal standard went by. When the barges
had been rowed around the magnificent Black
Prince they went directly to the Dockyard, and there,
amid much cheering, the Princess Louise, the Duke
of Edinburgh, and the Marquis of Lorne, in the order
I have named, stepped ashore and went up the
gangway. As they did so the royal salute was again
fired from the Citadel with heavy ringing guns. Sir
Patrick McDougall met the viceregal party with


stately courtesy and introduced the four lovely young
daughters of the land. Miss Archibald very prettily
presented the large bouquet, which the Princess
Louise accepted with a right gracious royal smile,
and the party entered the carriages to go in proces-
sion to the Provincial Bailding.
The procession having been duly formed, it began
its march along the streets to the Provincial Build-
ing, where the new Governor-General was to be
sworn in. The streets were lined on either side
by the military, and it is the simple fact that not a
single window along the whole route of the pro-"
cession was vacant. Places at some of the win-
dows, it is' said, were sold for $20 apiece for the
privilege of viewing the procession. Leaving the
dockyard the procession, headed by the Reception
Committee, moved out of the main gate,' which was
decorated with spruce, and turning north up the
Campbell road-so named by a happy chance which
Lord Lorne recognized-moved around the handsome
station of the Intercolonial Railway to North street.
where it passed under one of the many triumphal
arches of evergreens which have been laboriously
building during a fortnight past. As the proces-
sion passed into Brunswick street it moved under
another arch-the Richey arch, erected by the
member of Parliament from Halifax-and again at
the Garrison Chapel it defiled through an arch
eitctted by the soldiers of the garrison. Jacob
street was then reached. On the steep grade of
that thoroughfare the Sons of Tempe:t-runie had
erected the arch which they had Siipulied to do
honor to the occasion. In Argyll street, where,
again, the Marquis turned to his wife and called her
attention to the name, the city had erected its arch,
and in Buckingham street the Messrs. Silver had
put up still another. In Granville street there was
a double arch, and down George was the arch of the
Dominion. Into Hollis street, the principal street
of the city, the procession moved and entered the
Provincial Building. The house was crmoded to
suffocation. The Legislative Couucil's Chamber be-
ing actually packed. oThe Princess Louise, the


Duke of Edinburgh and the Marquis of Lorne waited
in a private room below, while Sir Patrick Mac-
Dougall, who had ridden in the carriage with Lord
Lorne and the Princess Louise, went up and occu-
pied the viceregal chair as pro tempore depositary of
the Queen's authority. Lieutenant-Governor Ar-
chibald and General Sir Selby Smith were on one
side of the .throne, and immediately behind them
stood the Chief of the Mick-Mack Indians, wearing
his national court dress of many colors, his purple
velvet cap with its rich embroidery and many thou-
sand beads. At the table below sat the Premier,
Sir John A. Macdonald, the Ministers of the Domi-
nion and Justice William Johnston Ritchie, of the
Supreme Court of the Dominion, who was to ad-
minister the oath of office. As soon as the Duke of
Edinburgh and the Princess Louise, announced by
Colonel the Hon. E. G. P. Littleton, Military Sec-
retary, entered, they were received by Sir Patrick'
MacDougall and took their seats on either side of the
viceregal chair, which Sir Patrick still kept. The
Marquis of Lorne came in next, quietly dressed in
the Windsor uniform, which is neither strange nor
splendid, and wearing the green ribbon and silver
star of the Order of the Thistle. He took his seat
at the head of the table between the Premier, Sir
John A. MacDonald, and Mr. Justice Ritchie.
Major De Winton then read in a clear, firm voice
the decree of the Queen establishing the vice-regency
of the Earl of Dufferin and the revocation of that
decree, and, after this the decree appointing the
Marquis of Lorne Governor-General and Viceroy,
dated at Balmoral Castle. The Marquis of Lorne
then read his declaration that he would defend
the rights of the throne as he was a Christian, in a
clear voice. Justice Ritchie then administered the
oath. The book was signed, the Bible kissed, and
the Queen's son-in-law had become the constituti-
onal ruler of the Dominion of Canada. Sir Patrick
MacDougall stepped down from his seat, and the
Marquis ascended it. The Duke of Edinburgh shook
hands with him, and the Princess Louise smiled
pleasantly in congratulation Mayor Tobin then de-
livered the address of the city of Halifax :
MAY IT PLEASE YOUR EXCELLENCY: We, the
Mayor and corporation of the city of Halifax, re-
spectfully tender to Your Excellency and Her Royal
Highness the Princess Louise a sincere and cordial
greeting. The intelligence that Your Excellency
and Her Royal Highness have reached our shores in
safety and in good health is a source of true rejoicing
to the people of Canada, and the words of welcome
we are permitted first to utter but feebly express
the sentiments which animate our fellow-country-
men in every section of the land.
We are sensible of the privilege conferred upon us
in the fact that Your Exce lency has been pleased
to make your formal entry into the Dominion
through the medium of our thus favored city, and
we record with fullest appreciation the further
auspicious circumstance that on this day and in tlis
city, for the first time in the history of British'
America, a daughter of the beloved Queen has set
foot upon Canadian soil. We pray the veent may
be followed by every happiness to Your Excellency
and Her Royal Highness as it is hailed with joy and
gratitude by all Her Majesty's subjects on tLis side
of the Atlantic.
We are most thankful that the choice ol a succes-
sor to the noble earl who has gov-"ned us for the
past six years has fallen upon a st '.sman.who holds
such high place in the personal : ffections of the
sovereign, and one whose illustrious birth, cultivated
mind and ,Parliamentary experience so eminently
qualify him to preside over this important depend-
ency of the empire.
We accept it as an earnest of the increasing good
will of Her Majesty towards her faithful people of
Canada ; as an assurance of additional strength in
the ties that bind us to the mother country, and a
guarantee that our mutual interests will be actively
promoted and securely guarded.
To Her Royal Highness, whose presence among
as is a mark of trust and honor which we gratefully
acknowledge, we offer the tribute of respectful and
loyal affection. Her distinguished virtues, her rare
accomplishments and her gracious bearing towards
all classes constitute a reputation which has long
been known to the people of Canada, and which has
made the Princess Louise loved in England and in-
sures for her the truest devotion of those with whom
she has so graciously consented now to identify
herself.
We pray that the Almighty may shower upon
Your Excellency and Her Royal Highness His
choicest blessings, that your home in Canada may be
a home of happiness and contentment and that you
may be long spared to enjoy the privileges of the
high state to which you have been called
The Marquis replied as follows to the address of,
Mayor Tobin, reading in a clear voice :
MR. I AYOR AND GENTLEMEN OF THE CORPO-
RATION. OF THE CITY OF HALIFAX :-I thank you,
as the representative of Her Majesty the Queen, and'
in her name, for the loyal words contained in your
address, which expresses well the sentiments of de-
votion to her throne and person which have ever
characterized the people of the provinces of British
North America, and which I am persuaded are no-
where more truly felt and more universally shared
than in this city, the capital of the ancient colony of
Nova tcotia. Your community has been, I may say,
already long associated with the history of the family
of our gracious sovereign, for it was here that His
Royal Highness the Duke of Kent passed many
years of soldier life. It is to your city that two of
his grandchildren come to-day. You have with you
-I regret to say for only a very short time-the
prince who has made the honored profession of a
seaman that in which in every quarter of the globe
he has already had an opportunity of serving Her
Majesty. He has already visited North America,
and let us hope that when he again comes the occa-


sion may be made then more conspicuous by the
presence of Her Royal Highness the Duchess of
Edinburgh. In no part of the British Empire are
the perils and the honors of the naval profession
better understood than on the shores of NovaScotia;
for here, although much attention is given to the
successful cultivation of the land and of the miner's
art, the anger of the sea is braved, as on the coasts
of the other maritime provinces of this great coun-
try, by thousands of intrepid seamen; its pathless
fields are made the highways of commerce by your
hardy sailors ; its wealth gathered by your gallant
fishermen, and the art of navigation is familiar to
many among your population.
Although sons of the sovereign -have before this
day visited these shores, this is the first occasion on
which a daughter of the reigning house has seen the
New World. I rejoice that the Princess Louise
lands on this continent among a people so loyal and
thoroughly worthy of the British as are the inhabit-
ants of this famous colony, and I speak but feebly)
for her when I say that she is much miovrd by the
kindness of your welcome..
For my own part, I thank you for the-flfittering
manner in which you have .sp,,ken of my accepting
of this high office, and I can only hope that I shall
in some measure be able to follow in the footsteps
of your late Governor General. I shall at all events
always entertain the greatest solicitude for the wel-
fare and the interests of these provinces.
Let me add in conclusion that the congriituhitions
you Lave addressed to us and the hearty and enIthu-
.,iastie loyalty shown in our reception mike the day
on which we enter your noble barbur, Ihe hospit-
able and ever open gates of your province and of
thi wide Dominion beyond, a day to remain in
grateful remembrance; and I assure you we consider
ourselves most fortunate in-having cast in our iot with
so generous, warm-hearted and devoted a people.

arrived'at Ottawa on the 2nd instant, in a wretched
rain storm.-We will give further particulars in our

ST. GEORGES, BERMUDA,
December 5th, 1878.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SIR,-Noticing in the Colonist of 4th instant a
report relating to the stranding of the Steamship Kate,
I beg that you will allow me a small space in your co-
lumns to point out the many inaccuracies and gross
misrepresentations which appear therein.
According to the best of my judgment it was impos-
sible for the steamship Kate to strike on a reef with
the light bearing S.E., and just dipping, When the
ship struck the Light was bearing N.E. by E., and I
have every reason to believe that she came in collision
with either a portion of a sunken wreck or a log ot
timber. Later, she did not strike on Long Bar or any
other Bar." The damage was not easily ascertained
at the time the accident happened. In regard to ar-
rangements made with Steam Tug Acherman, any
haggling or delay on my part was caused by deference
to my owner's interest. Having been previ )usly in-
formed by the Pilot that, in the event of bad weather
coming on, it would be impossible f)r the Tug to tow
us into port I refused to give the 600 which the Cap-
tain charged for towage, but made him an offer of 150
which he refused. After considerable demur Captain
Luckenhack at length relented, and kindly offered to
tow the Steamship Kate to [er Majesty's Dockyard
for 400, which I accepted, with the understanding that
in the event of his failing to perform his part of the
contract, he would forfeit all claim to the money. When
the Tug first came to our'assistance I asked her Cap-
tain if he had any spare steam pumps on board, and
was answered in the negative. After the amount of
towage had been agreed on, Captain Luckenback sud-
denly recollected that he had a couple of hand pumps to
spare, and offered them for my acceptance ; but being'
unable to spare us men to work them, I was obliged to
decline his kind offer. Besides their utility was consi-
derably lessened by the delay and detention necessary to
get them. H. M. S. Spitfire made several ineffectual
attempts to render us aid. I did not refuse assistance,
which would have been gladly given and received had it
been possible. Deeming it unadvisable to longer
delay, I. by the advice of the Pilot, zave orders for the
Tug Ackerman to tow the Steamer Ka'e to land, as the
water was rapidly gaining, 'and not sufficient men to
work the pumps. Having given the Captain of the
Tug orders to tow the Kate to a safe anchorage, and
not beach the ship, these orders I repeated to the Pilot
with the full convie!ion that I would b" obeyed. When
off Tucker's Town soundings were taken, and the an-
chor let no in seven fathoms of water, but, the ship
swinging round with her stern to the northward, she
struck bottom. I requested the Pilot to inform the
Captain of the Tug that it was my wish that lie should
tow the Kate out till her stern had ceased to touch bot-
tom. This was not complied with, which I sincerely
regret. At an early hour on Monday morning I left
the ship and proceeded to the shore for assistance, but
meeting the Quarantine Officer I was ordered on board
again. Having shewn the Doctor a Clean Bill of
Health, I was released. I did not return to the shore
till I had empowered Captain T. L. Outerbridge, a
man strongly recommended by my Agent, to represent
me. The first and second Officers, with thn sailors,
were left in charge of the ship and they continued in
charge to date. In regard to that portion of the report
which refers to my willingness to seH ship and cargo
for 300, I have only this to say, that it is simply
untrue. As my acquaintance with the people of Ber-
muda is limited, I should fe 1 obliged to the Editor of
the Colonist if he would give me an introduction to the
writer of the article referred to.
I am thoroughly of the opinion tha! had the ship's
crew obeyed my orders the vessel would have been kept
sufficiently afloat to have enabled the Tugs to bring
her into port. The three engineers, four fire.nen, the
donkey man and the engineers' steward lowered one of
the boats, and at 5 p.m. left the ship, reducing the
number of the crew so cor siderably that the pumps
could not be kept at work.
I am, most respectfully yours,
WM. SIMPSON,
Faster of Steamship Kate.

[Received at too late an hour for insertion in last
"Gazette."-Ed. R. G.]
DEAR ME1. EDITOR,-I am writing this letter so
that you may know that I, and a number of my
lady friends, do not like the way in which you carry
on what you call your Sporting Correspondence.
I go out with the Hunt sometimes but I am always
afraid I shall be quizzed after it by that horrid man
" Tally-ho" ; and quite a number of young ladies I
know of are afraid of him too so I have been fixed
upon to write to you about it. If he would always
say nice things of people we would not mind but
sometimes he says such very rude things, and we
never know who will be the next victim. We go
to the finish very often and none of us know him.
It is so very annoying never to know when one may
be watched, so whenever the Hunt is about we al-
ways speak in a whisper for fear of seeing what we
sayprinted in your next paper. This is uncomfort-
able and we don't think its fair. People used to say
thatit was Mr. Fowler who wrote and he m .1.- n-ty-
remarks because they bullied him about li. books,
then they said it was one of the 46th Officers, then
the late Brigade Major came in for the credit .of it
though I always said it was'nt him, dear little man.
All these have gone, but we have'nt got rid of your
correspondent. Among others I have heard people
say it is a Doctor in Hamilton, and someone told
me the other day it was a military doctor. If it is
either of these, all I can say is, they are old enough
to know better, and I am sorry they have nothing
else to do, but then I am sure it can't be either of
these, they are too polite to write like that. The
reason we are writing to you now is that we can
see you intend saying some rude things about our
dresses at the races, not of course that it will make
any difference in what we wear, or that we care
about it at all, but if you say anything rude about
any of us we won't buy your paper-so there.
What has it got to do with you whether I wear a
dark claret serge with a kilted skirt, or whether my
skirt is vandyked at the edge or not.


As I am not ashamed of what I write I send you
my card, not for publication, but you can shew it to
any nice people who want to see it.
Believe me, your affectionate friend,
ALICE.
