BETWEEN BRITAIN AND GAu.L-All cliffs may be
said to be illustrative, more or less, of the sea's en-
croachments, for their promontories infallibly indi-
cate those rocks which have greater powers of re-
sistance to the invading element, and bays those
which have less. 'But the iapid waste of the east-
ern and south-eastern coast of England leads to
some interesting speculations in regard to the past.
It points to the probability.of the tradition which
makes the Goodwin Sandd take their name from
Earl Goodwin, the father of Harold, whose estates,
shortly before the Conquest, are supposed to have
extended as far seaward as the site of that danger-
ous sand-bank. So also, a ridge of sand running
across the Straits of over is thought to be the last
remnant of an isthmus about six miles broad,
which may, before the days of Caesar, have connect.
ed Britain with Gaul.-Belgravia.

A PURE AND GooD WOMAN is a great power.
Whether arising from the courage that is founded
on a sense of responsibily, or whether unconscious-
ly exercised and dictated only by her noble in.
stinct, she has a great power in modelling the
characters and regulating the conduct and lives of
those who are under her influence.

THE ESSENcE o1 FALSEHOOD -The essence of lying
is in deception, not in words. A lie may be told by
silence, by equivocation, by the accent on a sylla-
ble, by a glance of the eye attaching a peculiar
significance to a sentence; and all these kinds of
lies are worse and baser" by many degrees than a lie
plainly worded ; so that no form of blinded consci-'
ence is so far sunk as that which comforts itself for
having deceived,-because the deception was by gest.
ure or silence instead of utterance; and, finally,
according to Tennyson's trenchant line, "A lie
* which is half a truth is ever the worst of lies."

For the wick'est Ihi:ng that could-be done,
.Hai: r the liishf of the 1i.!es.ed sun,

" And yet, if I find my man"--
Says the devil-"I shall be lucky ;
So mriv to think what they dare not do,"
And be searched ind scaicihed the whole country
And succeeded in Kentucky.
This is the scherime hL laid
At the feet of his ti, i. berlicv;-

It was under the Enibsh fla.,
In the mi,lt o. tl:e lonely ocean,
With fi'.e- n ors P( one to his nose,
That they robbed Ith. 3.Iil dend of their clothes,
And itod them in buddl.s for Goshen.

i The Voluunteer Fleet" which was to be a mer-
caufile navy ready to receive an armament on the
outbreahk of war, seems more likely to consist of
ready made cruisers armed to the teeth. What the
ship that is to be built on the Clyde is to be it is
hard to fay, for one hears of designs ranging in size
from 4,000 tons up to something more than four
- time..aj large. If Russia and Italy are both dis-
posed to develop naval monstrosities, there is less.
reason to be alarmed than it we Raw France and
, Germany displaying such an intention. If a Power
already in pojlclesiio. of an effective fleet proceeds
at one bound to rndd enotrmously oits strength, there
i:.- a very decided cause for anxiety. Isolated d ri p'
c(- great pre-tenlions serve to fltttcer the patriotismu of
State-i othqr wise weak in naval armaments. But a
big ship required a large auxiliary force, and no navy"
i, strong thnt does not pousess numbers aa well as a
fe tw examples of concentrated power. If Rutisia
should choose to present the world with the ipheno-
menou which a scientific contentpirary has descri-
bed aqa "fl.)atiug hghting ilinud," there is the cer-
t'iiity that she will have to spend a largo sum-ot

IRELAND ISLAND, 15th Nov., 1879.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sli,--'Having noticed R. Hurley's Challenge in
your Gazette of the 11th instant to "Lewis," and
having been one of the pullers in the late Skiff
Races in connection with the Ireland Island Re-
gatta, I presume I am the individual hinted at,
and therefore hasten to reply. That Mr. Hurley
does not feel satisfied with the results of the late
contest, no one disputes, the vanquished never take
well to their defeat; but considering that on nei-
ther occasion did he go round the course, and con-
sequently was nowhere in the race, it is surprising
that he should begin to crow, so soon.
He has stated that I won by a fluke," the
phrase, as it is put in this case, I do not thoroughly
understand, not being one of the Fancy," but if he
means I did not win the cup fairly, he does not
state the truth: I wonder if his allusion is in any
way connected with the erratic movements of the
Kate Kearney, particularly on the last occasion.
(Oh! shade of Erin if she could only see at the dis-
tance of 3000 miles the pranks and capers cut by
the Killarney Girl on that day she would hide her
disconsolate head with shame and weep for Kate).
I would like Mr. Hurley to answer with his usual
candour what he considers "fair water"; does he
think the Hospital Pond, or Camber suitable, if so
its no go; he also states if his terms are not suit-
able (fair water being his chief hobby) that he
hopes I will stop further talk, in other words I must
shut up. Now, Mr. Editor, this is rather a poser
when I come to consider that I have been talking
for the last 42 years, and old habits are not easily
got rid of-indeed I have been led to believe, that I
commenced earlier than above stated, for I have
been told by the old folks at home (and they used
to relate it with no little pride) that when only one
year and a day (I like -'to be precise) I cried out
quite plain, Cock a-doodle-do; so that you see it
would be very difficulti-to leave off with such short
notice. Again, there is Mrs. Lewis to be consider-
ed, and if you had heard her when she read the
paragraph relating to the talking question, she
would have made your hair stand on end; stand-
ing with her arms akimbo, she said, Mr. Lewis,
(she always calls me Mr. when her dignity is hurt)
what does this all mean, speak out and let every-
body know that you are not to be shut up for noth-
ing, not if I knows it Joe, how in all the world
would Mrs. Joe Lewis get on if you are to be si-
lenced in this manner, or how could we ever argue
whether the Blackbird was white or not; no Joe,
she says, don't consent to that no how; and I said
no Mrs. Lewis, and I won't neither, and I further
say, that I will not pull on tht Hospital Pond, nor
in the Camber, but I do say that the same crew in
the Amy" will pull the same crew in the Kate
Kearney" the same course as on the last occasion, or
from the mouth of the Camber, round Pearl Island
and back, for the sum of 1 to 100.
P.S.-Amateur Oarsmen, particularly amongst
the Army and Navy, wishing to be instructed in
the art of rowing, will please call at No. 4 Victoria
Row, where old Joe, will be willing to show, pupils
how to row, at terms very low. J. L.

The Board of Health took decided action Tuesday
against the Captain of the Barkentine Clara E. Mc-
Gilvery, proceeding so far as to instruct the city So-
licitor to prosecute the captain on two charges. It
will be remembered that this vessel, in charge of
Captain Clifford, arrived at the Lazaretto on the
evening preceding the last day of the quarantine re-
gulations. The following morning the vessel and
crew were regularly inspected by quarantine physi-
cians Robinson and Cummings. The steward was
missing and Captain Clifford explained to the doc-
tors that he had died upon the voyage from injuries
received by falling down the steps of the vessel's

In addition to this explanation the captain was re-
quired to take oath and answer the regular questions
propounded to captains. The twelfth inquiry is:
"Have you had sickness of any kind on board since,
you left port ?" To this question the captain answer-
ed, No," and upon the strength of this no further
investigation was made as to the cause of the stew-
ard's death, and the craft was permitted to come to
this city. Her cargo was sugar and this was at once
unloaded. During the process, however the second
officer of the vessel, Robert Colcord, was taken sick
and after being attended by several physicians he
was removed to the Jefferson Hospital, where it;
was developed that the officer was suffering from
yellow fever, and he was removed to the Municipal
Hospital, where he died on the 7th inst.
The development of yellow fever in the case of the
second officer led Port Physician Leidy to make
a further investigation of the case of the steward's
death. Capt. Clifford repeated to Dr. Leidy the
story that the steward had died from a fall, but the
doctor demanded to see the log-book of the vessel,
and there he found the following entry under date of
Sept. 19.
4" Steward died from some kind of fever, not know-
ing what kind, his clothes were thrown overboard
by order of the master."
Under these circumstances the vessel was taken
in charge by the health authorities and properly fu-
migated. The captain was also retained on board.
These facts were reported to the Board of Health
Tuesday and' attention called to the fact that the
captain, in deceiving the quarantine officers, had
violated a law entailing a severe penalty.
The Board decided to release the vessel, but or-
dered the prosecution of the captain. Health Offi-
cer Addick-; immediately transferred the papers in
the case to City Solicitor West, who advised the
health authorities not to allow the vessel to.depart
from qlatrautin. regulations until he could take the
necessary steps for the arrest of the captain. Under
this advice the Lazaretto Committee of the Board of
Health decided to overrule the order- of the Board
and detain the vessel and captain.
Solicitor West says that, as the offence was com-
mitted in Delaware county, the process of arrest
must be issued in that county.
Late Tuesday afternoon Port Physician Leidy re-
ceived notice from Health Officer Addicks to hold
the vessel. This latter officer regards the case as
serious, inasmuch as captains as a rule, have for
years used artifice in passing the quarantine with
infected vessels, and thus endangering the health of
the city. He referred to the case of the brig Home,
which passed the quarantine in 1870, and failed to
make a report of the death of the steward, who had
died on the voyage from yellow fever. The result
was that Quarantine Physician Thompson and his
wife caught the disease from the craft, and both died
from its effects. The scourge was also communicated
to several other people at the Quarantine, as well as
in the city, resulting in the death of over forty people.
This captain escaped punishment, and the doctor is
of the opinion that an example should be made of
some one,
Captain Clifford will be charged with two offences
-first, the falsification of his returns; and second,
with perjury, in having testified falsely in saying the
returns were correct -New York Paper.

REWARDING MERIT.-" And you are at school
now, are you ?" was the question of a countryman
to a little nephew, who a short time before had
commenced his education. "And do you like the
school, my man ?"-" Yes," whispered the boy.-
"That's right. You'll be a brave scholar, I'll war-
rant. How far are you in your class, my little
student ?"-" next to the head."-" Next to the
bead, say you! Come, now, you deserve some-
thing for that,"' said his friend, thrusting a shilling
into the hands of the delighted urchin. "And
how many are in your class?"-" I and a little
