lency delivered, in a clear and impressive
manner, the following gracious
Mr. President and Honorable Gentlemen of the
.- -Le i at"i(' C l:nuci;
.I.r'. SptaZ.. and Oentlemen of the Hn'0,oru.le
House of-A. m'1,,l, ly;
I have called you together to-day in
purstiunce of the intention I announced to
you at the close of the last Session of
Parliament, in order to afford you an op-
portunity of taking, once more under youi
careful consideration the- question of popu-
lar education in this Colony, and thus en-
able you to seek, and I trust to find, a
satisfactory solution to that important ques-
tion in passing an Education Act' framed
in a just and liberal and impartial spirit,
making a fair and adequate provision for
the 'maintenance and improvement of the
schools which afford the means of education
to the poorer classes of the community, and
providing a simple .but effective p-administra-
tive machinery for their supervision, and foi
carrying out the general purposes' of the
SI must remind you that the present
4 Education 'Act expires 6r1i the 31st Deceim-
her next, aid that it is of the greatest, im-
portance therefore to the interests of the
Colony that., some new legislation on the
subject should have been enacted prior tc
The Attorney 'General- will lay before you
an Education Bill which, if passed, will,I
think, meet the educational requirements of
the Colony for some time to come. I re-
commend it to your careful consideration,
and I invite your attention especially tc
Sthe provisions of lthe sixth clause, which
Simposes a .school rate upon the parents o0
all children between the ages of six and
twelve years, but grants a complete exemp-
tion from. the payment. Of that rate to .all
parents who are able to satisfy the Local
Parish Board that they are making reason-
able efforts to provide for their children's
education.'-' : '
Under the provisions of that clause the
school rate will become payable by those
parents only-and I trust they will be few
in -number-who after ample warning per-
sist in scandalously neglecting a duty which
They owe to their children and to society,
-and the rate may therefore be considered
rather as a mild form -of pressure put uponr
negligent parents to induce them to send
their children to school than as a meant
of raising a revenue,
I trust that the principle which under-
lies the Drovision' of this clause will corn-
iend itself, to.- your approval, and thai
either in the form proposed in the, present
bill, or in any better form which you may
see .fit to substitute for it, that prixciple-
of making it the interest of poor, parents
to send their children to school,-will. b
recognized and embodied in the new, Act.
It. will, be, .of comparatively little use fo0
you to grant large sums of public none3
for educational purIposes, unless at the same
time you adopt, some means of ensuring
that the -children for whose education "yot
have voted the money are not deprived o-
the benefit of the grants by the negligencE
or perverseness of their parents;-and, aq
this coinnmnity seems scarcely to be pre-
pared' at present to adopt the stringent pro.
visions of a conipulsory -education Act, i-
seems expedient f or aa time at least to try
" the milder form of coercion embodied in th(
The Attorney General will also lay be-
fore you -two other bills which I trust yot
will have no difficulty in passing. The.firsi
provides for supplying to the Colonial Se-
cretary's Office thQ temporary clerical as-
sista hce which may be- necessary from time
to time to .secure the regular and accur-
ate recording of, Wills and 'Deeds. The
second is an Audit Bill identical in all its
main. provisions with that which was.pass-
ed by the Honorable House of Assembly
-duing" the last Session, and which only
differs from it in giving'to the Honorable
House the same ample powers of, inspect-
ing the book of the Audit Board which
it, already has of: inspecting the .books of
the Rt6eiver General.
These three are the only bills which
will; be proposed on the behalf of the

which T think shold'i claim your inimmediate
.Sh,:,rtly after the close of Iast Session it
-was found upon examination that the wood-'
work of some of the bridges upon the Cause-?
way was unsound. A considerable number.
of the beams which support the roadway
were found to -be so completely decayed
that unless they were immediately replaced
a serious accident'might- at any inmoment be
anticipated. Under these circumstances the
Board of Works recommended that the Co-
lonial Surveyor should be c(ip'wered to
carry out at once whatever repairs were
necessary to provide for- the public safety,
and, under my authority, that Qfficial has '
replaced all the, faulty timbers with sound
material, and these bridges may now be
Considered saf'e for a few more years. The
Attorney General will lay before -the Hon-
orable House .of Assembly 'a Resolve pr I-vid-
ing funds to meet .the cost of these repairs,
and next session a project will be submit-
ted by the Board of Works for replacing
these wooden beams by iron girders.
I trust that the Ses.ion which we open
to-day may be short yet fruitful of good
results, 'and that, under the blessing of
SGOD, the measures you adopt may conduce
I to the welfare and prosperity of the people
whose interests are confided to your care.

Destruction of the Spanish Steamer Nuevo Pajaro del
Oeeano.-A Midnight Horror.-From Cruel Flamirs
to Mercile e sA .-Sufferings of the Survivors.-
Forty Persons Believed to Have Perished.
Nuw ORLEANS, Oct. 28,-The English steamer
Louise H., CaptainVoss, just arrived from Algiers,
Africa, brings seventeen unfortunate men, picked
up at sea, who are the sole survivors of the Spanish
steamer Nuevo Pajaro del Oceano, which was
burned at sea early in the morning of Saturday, Oc-
In Perilous Plight.-Captain Voss reports that
about nine o'clock of the evening of that day, as
his vessel was passing through the old Bahama
Channel, a hail was heard, and on its being repeat-
ed the engine of the Louise E. was stopped and the
watch on deck endeavored to discover whence the
voice proceeded. On lowering a boat they found 6
men clinging to a kind of raft, made by lashing a
hen coop on two planks. The men were in a terri-
ble state of destitution and spoke but little English.
On being asked if any more of their comrades were
In the water they stated that there had been origin-
ally fifty-seven in the ship's company and that it
was supposed that a number of them were still
afloat in the neighborhood of the raft from which
the survivors were taken.
Searching for other $urvivors.-The steamer was
at once put about, and, after going a mile and
watching as well as they could, they again heard
faint cries. Fortunately the sea was not running
high at thbe time and there was no difficulty in res-
ouing all the persons they were able to find. Cruis-
ing around up to 12 o'clock, Captain Voss, was
able to pick up seventeen unfortunate beings, who
were cllnging to oars and bits of wood, or any-
thing else that they could hope would sustain them
In the water, which every moment threatened to
sweep them to their death. It is supposed, from
the sound of the voices which hailed the Louise
H., that there were more persons in the water than
were afterwards rescued, but in the distress which
surrounded them the survivors were unable to tell
whether all of their companions succeeded in get.
ung on board. Captain Voss continued to cruise
in the neighborhood until morning dawned, but
was unable to rescue any more than those discov.
ered the night previous.
A Terrible Midnight Cry.-The story of the disas.
ter, as far as It can be gathered from the captain of
the lost steamer, is as follows:-" The unfortunate
vessel which be commanded was a wooden side-
whee steamer, which at one time was used as a
transport for troops. She left Havana bound for'
Noevitas on the 16th of October, and on the morn.
ing of the 18th of October, at about four o'clock in
the morning, the alarm of fire was given. The
Captain, on reaching the deck, discovered that the
steamer was completely enveloped in flames. In
the terror and confusion which ensued every one
on board jumped into the sea in whatever clothing
they happened to have on, grasping whatever they
might lay their hands on that they supposed might
keep them afloat.
An Inflammable cargo.-The vessel, it is said, had
a large quantity ot inflammable matter aboard of
her, both coal oil and gunpowder. The fire was soon
raging in the wildest violence, so that it was im-
posible to get the boats afloat or to save anything.
Nothing is known as to the origin of the fire.
in the Flames.-.The vessel was soon burned
Is 4W water, and some of those who were aboard,
Id supposed, must have perished in the flames.
Strugglingfor Life.-The rest of these unfortunates
were left struggling in the water. They saw in the
afternoon of the blazing hot day which followed a
small Spanish gunboat steam by, but too far distant
One woman, a stewardess, was sustained on the
raft for some time, but finally she relinquished her
bold and dropped into the water.
.cahping the Sharks.-The second mate and a
companion had a narrow escape from sharks, which
were seen in great numbers all around them.
Pitiable Condition of the Survivors.-There were
seventeen passengers on board, four of whom were
merchants and the rest Spanish soldiers. Among
the latter was one officer, a captain. Those picked
up were in a dreadful state from exposure to the
water and sun and their bodies presented a condi.
tion truly pitiable, the flesh in some instances being
entirely torn from their bodies. Their destitution
i as great as can well be imagined. Captain Voss
says it was a most fortunate occurrence that in re-
turning he held the course he did, as he steered di-
rectly toward them, going only a little to leeward.
If he had been to windward their cries could not
have been heard, and in the darkness their bodies
never could have been seen.
The unfortunate men will be committed to the
charge of the Spanish Consal. More definite par-
ttcalvas of their names and those of the lost can be
Story of td l Spaniards.-Captain Pascasio )Diaz,
the hasht r, and the two mates, Fauslo Alboinmgo and
Simon Ribs'to,of the it-fated vessel, give the fol-
lowing additional information :-The vessel was
bound for Nuevitas. Cuba, ithi a large cargo of
grals, provisions and ammunition for the Spanish
Sunk in Four hours.-The rie was discovered in
the Bahama traits, between Pasedon and Lobos
lights. The fire first appeared atmidships, near the
donkey engine, and the vessel in an instant was
one sheet of flame. The gneateest confusion ensued.
Some jumped overboard, while others attempted to
lower the bosts. The vessel, after being burned to
the watea's edge, sunk In less than four hours. At
the time the steamer was burned there were on
boar4 forty-two men in the crew and seventeen or
twenty passengers. including six offices of the
SpanIAh army. Of the seventeen rescued five or
six of the crew were badly burned and otherwise
injured. The persons picked up from the wreck
were perfectly naked.-
A saull Boat Missing.-Five of the crew took to
a hall boat, and were never heard of,, and it is
*uppoed they had been lost.*
The ill-faled .steamer was owned by R. Herrera,
of Iavana, and was foQrmetly an Aimeican ves-
sel, ki6owu as the Niagara. bbe then ran between
New York asid Havana.
The eapjtain and men speak in the highest terms
of the captain and officers of the Louise H. for the
manner in which they were treated by them. Cap-
tain Voas luinished clothing for the naked and
attended those that were hurt.
Nuevita., or Nuevitas del Prinelpe, the desti.
nation of the Pajaro del Oceano on her last fatal
voyage, is the port of Puerto Principe, and is si-
tuated on the northeastern coast of Cuba, fotty-
four miles from that city, with which it is con-
steeed by a railroad.
The point near which the Louise H. picked up
4he survivors is called Puento de Caiberan, and
Issituated on the northern cost of Cuba, about
ote hundred and seventeen miles east of Cardenas,
a well known seapo t.

the sbote in salety. The other boats it seems alter

TilE AMERICAN ELECTIONS.
The Autumn elections in the United States have
generally gone in favor of the Republicans. In
certain of the States there was never much doubt
as to the result, but in those which were consider-
ed doubtful the drift is once more toward the con-
tinuance in power of the party which has, so long
enjoyed it. The Southern States are all democratic
and the solid front they present on all political
questions necessarily ranges the Torth in more
compact opposition. This sectional division is
much regretted. In the North there has been a
disposition to seek some other lines of political dif-
ference, and the contests of the two parties have
been waged on issues which were not sectional.
But it seemed unavoidable that the South must
continue to be united in the political field. The
losses and defeats they suffered in the war prove a
more certain and rigid bond of union than do the
victories of their opponents. On almost all ques-
tions in Congress the Southerners were a unit, and
their policy has caused the Northerners with much
reluctance to resume and again form their undivi-
ded ranks. The present elections while concerning
offices of great local importance, were chiefly
watched as bearing on the Presidential election of
next year. Governors were chosen in Ohio and
New York, and in other important States, and the
contest was warm and the rivalry was great. But
behind all, and superior to all, was the" dwelling
theme" of the presidency, to which the State elec-
tions were merely the prelude. The South, solid
as it is, cannot elect the President, lacking some
few votes to accomplish the result. The-Torth has
votes enough but it is not solid in its attitude
Party discussion and allegiance are more free and
variable than at the South. The three great States
of New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania are as nearly
democratic as Republican, and the contest is and
wil be to keep them in the Republican column and
prevent their joining the Southern group to which
either one of them would bring victory and pre-
New York of all the States casts the largest
number of votes in the electional college. It is an
uncertain State, almost as often going for one
party as the other. It is chief of the so called
"pivotal" States whose vote is decisive in national
contests. The canvass for the November election
has been waged with lavish expenditure of energy
and money. It brought out a swarm of stump
speakers, and pamphlets and documents setting
forth the claims of the parties have crowded the
mails And yet the result is not satisfactory, the
advantage not being complete to either side. The
Republicans have elected their Governor because
there was a split among the Democrats, and two
candidates of that party. The democrats appear
to have elected by a small majority the subordinate
officers on their ticket, to whom the split on the'
Governor did not extend. Thus, neither party can
refer to the New York election with confidence as
fixing the status of the State in the more important
contest of next year. The Republicans have the
greater grounds for congratulation, as they gain a
Governor, and after January next will have such
control as, the chief executive officer of the State,
now democratic, can give them. The democrats,
on the other hand, may claim that where they were
united, they were victorious or nearly victorious,
and that when the presidential issue is at stake
they will combine all their factions and sweep on
to victory. But the bad spirit promoted by intes-
tine dissensions cannot be so easily allayed, and
the seeds of bitterness sown in this late contest
cannot fail to grow and impair the strength of the
party. Beside all this, in the other doubtful
States the Republican victories have been more de-
cided, and the tide whose full effect has not yet
been felt, was yet perceptible in New York. That
was a State to be reclaimed from the democrats,
and if the reclamation has not been complete, it is
still in the direction- of the political surge which
seems to set toward the success of the republicans.
One thing has been gained by the recent elec-
tions, and that is the defeat of the greenback and
inflation party. In Ohio the fight was chiefly
waged pon financial questions, and the democrats-
took as their candidate the most able and promi-
nent advocate in the land of the pernicious "soft
money" theories. He was defeated and with him
fell all those who clamored for -abundant unre-
deemable paper money and the delusions therewith
connected. It has been said by a prominent dem-
ocrat, Mr. Tilden, that the party successful next
year will enter on a long incumbency in power.
He thinks that the country is to be prosperous and
to continue so for five to ten years, and that the
party administering its affairs, will rightly or
wrongly, be credited with the prosperity which
perhaps they do nothing specially to promote. The
flood of success will enable them to hold the public
favor too satisfied to be critical. Throughout the
United States granaries are full and their stores are
needed abroad; the metal industries are active and
these make coal which for years has scarcely paid
Sfor its production, once more in demand: and on all
sides are seen signs of improvement and revival in
business. Securities of all kinds have risen in
price if not in value, the good and bad going up
together, and the expansion is still going on. To
use the current term, there is a "boom" in every-
thing. Very likely it will be overdone, as a stock
or bond bringing twenty dollars in June, can
scarcely without any intrinsic change, be worth
three times that sum in November. But unless all
signs fail there is reason for an improvement in
values, if not for an extravagant advance. Busi-
ness revivals, productive mines, profitable indus-
tries, contented labor-all these conditions will
make the people satisfied and induce them to per-
petuate the administration and party under whose
aupices the better times occur.,

Reconnoitring Afghan Passes.-The Viceroy of

LoNDON, Nov. 3.-A despatch from Cabul says
the Ameer has informed Gen. Roberts that there
are about nine lacs of rupees ($450,000) buried in
the city. Troops have been sent to discover and
seize the treasure.
The Ameer's Chamberlain has been arrested.
Shutar-Gardan Pass has been abandoned.
Another dispatch from Cabul reports that eight
lacs of treasure have b-en unearthed, chiefly gold
coin. It has all been confiscated for the present.
Eleven prisoners have been executed for parti-
cipation in the massacre of the British Embassy,
and 60 persons have been examined since the trials
A dispatch from Simla says the opinion gains
strength that the Afghan monarchy will not be recon,
siructed, but that the country will be broken up
into several provinces. The innocence of the,
Ameer is still far from clear. Circumstances have
come to light showing diat he has not been alto-
gether faithful to the treaty of Gundamak.
A dispatch from Cabul says the guard of the
Ameer has been doubled, it having been discovered
that he intended to escape.
LoNDON, Nov. 5.-A Cabinet, Council was held,
yesterday and another is to be held to-day. Ma-
suras Pasha, the Turkish Ambassador, saw Lord
Salisbury, the Foreign Secretary, before the Cabin-
et council met, and Admiral Pothuau, the French
Ambassador, after its adjournment.1 Count Schou-
valoff, the Russian Ambassador had a talk with
The Times in a leading article says: We have
no reason to suppose that the measures of reform on
which Sir Austen Layard, the British Ambassador
at Constantinople, is insisting, are beyond the pow-
ers of the Turkish government.
A despatch from Constantinople to the Times
says: The Palace is sedulously propagating a false
rumor that Sir Austen Layard, the British Ambas-
sador, used menacing language to the Sultan in or-
der to obtain for an Englishman the command of
the Turkish troops in Kurdistan.
The London correspondent ol the Madichelter
Guardian says: The clouds on the political bori-
zon in consequence of the strained condition of the
relations between England and Turkey may be
considered to have vanished. Diplomatic action
has resulted in a much more satisfactory condition
of things, and the British Mediterranean fleet will
not now proceed to Turkish waters." '
A despatch from Constantinople to Reuter's Telo-
gram Company says: "It is believed in political
circles here that Brtish policy will lead to the re-
turn to power of Khaireddin Pasha, or t' the as-
sumption of the premiership by Mahmoud Nedim
Pasha, according as the Sultan may determine to'
yield to Great Britain or seek Russian assistance in
resisting that power.":'
A despatch from Vienna to the Times says:
"Count Zichby, the Austro-Hungarian Ambassador
to Turkey, has suddenly returned to Constantino-
ple. Even if his purpose is to present his letters of
recall, the suddenness of his return still seems to
indicate that it is connected with the present crisis.
In view of the disposition of the Austrian govern-
ment, Count Zichy's intervention can only be for
the purpose of assisting the energetic efforts now
making to compel Turkey to fulfil her promises of
A dispatch from Berlin to the Daily News says:
A correspondent at St. Petersburg writes as follows:
When General Kaufman was at Livadia he repre-
sented to the Czar the impossibility of preparing a
new Central Asian Expedition without cash and
supplies. He received the significant answer that
it was, perhaps, better not to proceed with the pre-
On the making of the proposal to furnish Abdul
Rhaman Khan, the pretender to the Afghan throne
with money for the purpose of intriguing among
the Afghan chiefs an absolute refusal was given to
such a proceeding during peaceful relations with
England. The irritation shown in official circles
and by the press against Lord Salisbury's speech at
Manchester on the 17th ult., has subsided. Under
the first impulse of anger and annoyance, the ques-
tion was even raised of withdrawing the Russian
Ambassador from London, but the notion was at
once authoratively negatifed on the ground that the
speech could not be regarded as an official expres-
A Berlin despatch to the Morning Post says:
The National Zeitung accuses Russia of complicity
in the latest troubles in Afghanistan. Papers
found in Cabul, it says, disclosed the fact that Rus.
sian influence is active in Afghanistan against
England, and some of the papers seriously compro-
mise the government at St. Petersburg.
The Standard's Constantinople correspondent
telegraphs :-" Count Ziehy has arrived in Con.
stantinople. He is charged to give. formal assur-
ances to the Sultan of the friendly feelings of Aus-
tria toward Turkey. It is believed that Said Pa-
cba, Grand Vizier, and Mahmond Nedim Pasha,
Minister of the Interior, have tendered their resig-
nations." The Standard's Berlin despatch says the
appearance of the English squadron in Syrian
waters is likely to be succeeded by the despatch of
German and Austrian vessels of war to the Eastern
Mediterranean. The Daily News despatch from St.
Petersburg says:-" The report that the British
fleet will proceed to the Gulf of Smyrna has caused
embarrassment. here." It is probably a resvIlt, of
these political combinations that the Moscow a-.
zette's despatch from Baku reports that on the 20th
of October the main portion of the Akhal-Tekke
detachment returne'i to Tchikislar. The 'imns
correspondent at Vienna telegraphs that Princp
Lobanoff is expected to arrive at Constantinople,
from Livadia on Saturday. It is believed that no
definite answer to the demands of England will be
given before his return. The Telegraph understaUi.
that Count Schouvaloff has notyet received leUetto
recall, but they are expected to arrive before the
end of the month. No successor has yet been ap-
pointed. Count Schouvaloff has not yet been
named for any new post.
The Posts Berlin despatch reports that in conse-
quence of Minister Von Putt-Kammer's imprudent
observations in public, the Emperor has cautioned
him against further indiscretions.
A despatch from Berlin to the Post says:-'" The
rumors of estrangement between Germany and
France are unfounded. The two governments con-
tinue to be on the beat of terms."
The Daily fNews' correspondent at Berlin reports'
that the Emperor William telegraphed toVarzin on
Tuesday making inquiry regarding Prince Bis-
marck*s health. The answer was not satisfactory.
.A Vienna despatch to the standard says accounts
have been received from St. Petersburg of the reap.
pearance of the plague, which is not widespread,
but is efficiently serious to demand preventive
A Paris despatch to the Times says:-" M. Hum-
bert will appeal to the Council of State against the
annulment by the Prefecture of the Seine of his
election as a member of the Municipal Council of
A Brlin despatch to the (Globe says:-" The
Duke of Brunswick being desirous of securing the
succession of the Duchy to the Duke of Camber-
.land, intends to appoint him co-regent." It should
be remarked that, as a matter o! course, the con.-
sent of the imperial government of Germany will
be necessary to the Duke.of Cumberland assuming
any such position.
Raising the Grosser Kurfurst.-The boilers of the
steamer whose engines work the powerful air pumps
required to fill the Grossur Eurfuirst have broken
down, and the steamer has been towed to Dover.
If the boilers are not repaired in time to catch the
tide on Monday, the attempt to raise the ship will
be postponed a fortnight.
Fatal Railway Accident in India.-The manager
of the Madras (British India) Railway telegraphs
to the directors of the company in London that an
accident occurred to a passenger train near Arconum
on th 3 31st of October in consequence of the sinking
of an embankment after a rain storm. Nineteen
persons, including three Europeans, were killed
:and fory-five were wounded.
Chileans Man the Huascar.-A Valparaiso des-
patch dated October 12, received this evening by
the way of Lisbon, says:--" The captured Peru-
vian turreted ram Huascar has been towed here,
and is about to be refitted and manned by a Chil-
ean crew. The Chilean government has ordered
funeral honors to the late Rear Admiral Grau, who
commanded the Huascar.
The Parisian Prefect of Police.-A Paris despatch
to the Globe this afternoon says:-" M. Andrieux
has tendered his resignation as Prefect of the Paris
police, because he considers that he is insufficiently
supported by the government. President Gr6vy
e, deavored to dissuade him from such a course."
The Paris correspondent of the Daily News, dis-
cussing the possibility of M. Andrieux succeeding
M. Le Royer as Minister of Justice, in the event
of any future modification of the Cabinet, says:-
"Such a change would be unfortunate, as nobody
else could expect to hold so well in hand the great
force which he governs." A later despatch from
Paris denies the truth of the report that M. An-
drieux has resigned.
CAPE Tows.-The disturbance at Middleburg,
in the Transvall among the Boers, which was men-
tioned in a Cape Town despatch of Oct. 15, arose
on the occasion of the trial of a Boer for assaulting
a native. After the adjournment of the Court, a
party of armed Boers forcibly took a quantity or
ammunition from a store, leaving the value of the
ammunition on the counter. ThiA was in violation
of an order of SIrGarnet Wolseley, forbidding the
Boers to purchase ammunition until they had paid

We understand that Lord Chelmsford, since his
arrival in England, has sent in a report, coached
in the strongest terms, in reference to the services
performed by the two Commissariat officers, Depu-
ty-Commissary Dunne and Sub-Assistant-Commis-
sary Dalton, on the occasion of the defence of
Rorke's Drift post on January 22 last, in which he
recommends both officers to Her Majesty's favor-
able consideration for the Victoria Cross. His
lordship's recommendation is backed up by the re-
port furnished by Major Chard, V.C., the officer in
command, on the occasion, who, with his proverbial
modesty, states that to Mr. Dalton is really due all
the credit for having inaugurated the defence by
the steps he took to improvise the hasty fortifica-
tions which afterwards did such good service in
keeping the enemy at bay. In face of his lord-
ship's recommendation, there is no doubt but that
the Horse Guards will advise Her Majesty to take
a favorable view of the case. The prevailing opin-
ion throughout the Army appears to be that Messrs.
Dunne and Dalton-the latter especially, for he
was really the hero of the defence-have suffered
a gross injustice, a view which Majors Chard and
Bromhead and Surgeon-Major Reynolds unhesita-
tingly endorsed. However, there is reason to hope
that amends will be made now that the matter is
in suho good hands.-Army and Gasette, Oct. 25.
MYSTERIOUS AND FATAL DISEASE.
London, Ontario, Nov. 8.-A disease, known lo.-
cally as "black tongue," but which is probably a
very violent form of diphtheria, has appeared in
the country surrounding this city. Wm. Weather-
al, of London township, has lost five members of
bis family-three sons and two daughters-and
two daughters are now down with the malady.
Several cases are also reported from Lobo and
West Williams. The disease (has baffled the skill
of medical men. The symptoms are, first, a severe
pain in the stomach, gradually ascending to throat,
accompanied by vomiting, and before death, which
is attended with great agony, the tongue assumes a
black color. Muhob fear is felt regarding the di.-
ease, and physicians are in consultation about it.

THE MAYOR AND THE POLICE.
In the Royal Gazette of the 4th instant thl Mayor
published a notice to warn persons n~ainst discharge.

ing that the Police Act prohibited the same within
the Police limits of the Town."
How far this was regarded on the nizhf of the 5th.
those can decide who happened to be within view of the
Square at the Eastern extremity of the Town bounded
by Church Street, Victori.-i Street, and Dundonald
Street, which was a perfect blaze of Fireworks from
early in the evening to near midnight ere the discharges
ceased, and so continuous were they at timns directly
across Victoria Street that it was dangerous tfor travel-
lers to pass on foot; and had any carriages been on the
street the consequences right hve been i'.ri.,us. This
nuisance increases yearl:, and onizht to be put a stop
to, and surely under the Law it rnut be in the power of
the Mayor and Police to stop it.
November 6th, 1879.
From the Montreal Journal of Commerce, Finance and
Insurance Review, October 22.
The princip.ltopic of public discussion during the
week has been the trial of Sir F'ranci illinkcs before
the Court of Queen's Bench, charie'd with having, as
President of the Consolidatell Bank, signed a false
return to *the Government of the affairs of that in.
stitution in Febriarv last. It was hardly to be ex-
pected in the prevailing excited state of the public
mind in this city that the trial could result otherwise
than in the verdict of "guilty" returned by the jury
at the close of the proevedinz last Monday. People
possessing little knowled,,e of bank account-keeping
or the manner in which the monthly returns are usu.
ally prepared, grasped only o'e id.'a-kept constantly
in their visual foreground thir one parent fact-that
the Bank had come to an inglorious end, and that Sir

ate opinion outside as to who should be held respon-
sible. It was to be expected that the first person
placed on trial, whoever he might be, would be almost
certain to feel the full force of public indignation. It
were premature to discuss the merits of the case here,
as it is yet sub judice, but our readers will be enabled to
form an opinion for themselves from the addresses of
Messrs. Kerr for the defence and Ritchie for the pro-
secution, as well as the charge of His Honor Judge
Monk. There can be, however, but one feeling in the
minds of all right-thinking persons-that of profound
sympathy for thle grey-haired old gentleman full of
years, and of honors well deserved, againstt whom no
hint of dishonor ha; ever been breathed ; who has
done more to promote responsible government in the
country of his adoption than we can ever he sufficient-
ly grateful for; who has more than once single-handed
grappled with and overcome financial and other diffi.
culties that threatened the public welfare, and who
now, in his green old age, alter an active and well
spent life, in which the welfare of others has always
been paramount, is brought to the punishment of a
criminal through an interpretation ol a law which he
himself had no little to do in framing.
That the public at large, and especiady the share-
holders, havy had grave cases for complaint as to the
manner in which the affairs of the bank have been con.
ducted there can be no divided opinion. and the jury
were probably struck rather with the enormity of the
dangers presented than with any evidence teriding to
exculpate the defendant; but not even the most partial
observer throughout the whole affair can find cause for
attributing to him any dishonorable or selfish intent
or motive while all cannot but regret that it has been
found imperative to pronounce such a verdict. The
trial of the other directors, which had. been fixed to be-
gin last Tuesday with that of Mr. Hugh MacKay, is
postponed till the Spring term of the Court. Sir
Francis IHincks remains a prisoner on parole pending
the sentence of the Judge, ar his permission to have
the case taken before the Court of Appeal.
VENUS BY DAYLiaHE.-Large numbers of people
might have been seen on the streets yesterday dur-
ing the forepart of the day gazing and wondering
at the unusual spectacle of a star, visible toward
the southwest, in the brilliant daylight. Many, no
doubt, thought that it was a miraculous phenom-
enon, and attributed its appearance to some un-
usual cause. Such, however, was not the case. The
star was the planet Venus, and the reason she is
thus visible to the naked eye is a rather curious
combination of natural causes, which may not hap.
pen again in a lifetime. Venus and Mercury are
the only two interior planets that are revolving be-
tween the earth and the sun, and the former is now
at that point in her orbit where she is closest to the
earth's orbit. Being a little off from an imaginary
line drawn from here to the sun, she seems to go
with the sun, rising an hour or so before it in the
morning and setting the same way at night. She
becomes thus the morning star, and although be.
tween the earth and the sun, she presents a large
portion of her shaded surface toward us, and the
crescent that we can see is so brilliant as to be vis-
ible even in comparatively close proximity to the
noon-day sun, and may readily be seen during the
day, always in advance of the sun, for perhaps a
week to come. The planetery display all aroundis
just at thia time unusually fine, and anyone who
wishes to see, what they consider the impudent lit-
tle star, in dazzling splendor, has only to look to..

A project for a tunnel under the lURiver Mersey
between Liverpool and Birkenhead, has taken de-
finite shape. Its estimated cost is 500,000 and
the Liverpool Town Council, the Mersey Docks,
and Harbor Board, the railways having termini
at Birkinhead, and the Birkinhead Town Council
are expected to co-operate in the enterprise, for
which the necessary powers are to be asked of Par.
