'; L.TTLT 'T HOTEL.7
The abrupt closing of I-' Hamilton Hotel by
Mr. '--, who conducted it last season, on the
1st. -' 7 from us in our issue of the
6 th ,y some remarks which the case merited.
At the time the.house was closed there were Peveral -
who would gladly have remained longer,
and there were others (._i. e., from coming to
.....: .to '. the delightful weather of. Mlay
and June, when it was announced that the IIamil-
ton Hotel was closed to the public. Mr. M;-l..,
for all concerned, had entered on an unsatisfactory
contract to conduct the Hotel for six months from
November 1st, knowing nothing of the condition
of the property, or what the special requirements
of the place demanded. V p.:iui-t_ out thlit !'Lv-.
Dodge and the Corporation must come to some sort
of agreement, and that, during the ensuing Summer
", ,:, ,j ,,'l be carried out)- and many were ab-
solutely necessary, in order to make the house
comfortably, habitable during the coming season.,
That any other course would r:esult. in failure and
disappointment.
Somewhat late, in September, the Manager for
the present -,. :v. visited Bermuda, and it required
no very great penetration for a person of his hotel
experience to discover how great and nr,.-ut, were
the reforms demanded. By the last trip of the
4"Canima" the Manager returned, provided with
men and material, to cariy out the most n.i_-.l.-1
improvements, which are being pushed foi;i,'. 1.:.;
and, as far as we can learn, the best is being done
in the i.. 1 time now available to :make guests
for the present season comfortable. The building
and furniture needed a thorough renovation, which,
we axe assured Mr. Farnham has ri"-Lco them, and
thus --1i. .1-- .1 t1i further deterioration of a valuable

his r'ni,-'tin-i. conduce also to tL: comfort of visit-
ors a..]l h.: redit of the Islanrd. Mr. FaLt.in]:,,.I
must have much patience during the' season and
keep up his courage. He must make a reputation
a'nd restore confidence before he can permanently
-command a large .i :'"'-', the rp'if:.tion u1f the
SaI..,[i,:,u Hotel for the last three years being far
S. i enviable. -'.71D, good and reasonable .cater-
ing and moderate charges, ,the Hamilton Hotel
should ..:. : a success.
The h: il mi.. the New York steamer are closely
allied, the one depending very much on the
6-..1. If hotel i-i.": is properly made, the
-*- ---p agents can -*.' f -'ily recommend pas-
sengers to visit the Bermudas, feeling assured that
their creature ,. ..-' -' v ill be amply attended to;
and, if the efficiency of i- hotel is clearly estab-

on the steamship provision. The influence which
each interest would exert on the other would high-
ly conduce to the w. ,'.,- both of the community
and of visitors, and, as we stated in our previous
article, a good large -hotel would, have a beneficial
result on the smaller hotels and boarding houses,
which always prosper under the shadow of large
establishments.
Bermuda, as a salubrious Winter Resort, has been
frequently written about in a manner it fully de-
serves; and the .:xp,-ien.:e of mostt all visitors
bears out the ip:.irt- iriiul:it.-. There may be
some'whose special ideas may have been disap-
pointed, either from un-'.:,-'n.!Il.:' expe,-tati,''js, or
from the wt:'..-r at t',- ti.e -f tl.,-ir v\ il-..vying
stubbornly unbending. But,f :- iu .; :: 1 -d ex-
perienee, Bermuda oni the whole possesses many
:* v...-.-,; for thd':, who must escape the rigour
of a i., thi u Winter-and these are not a few-
or those who can steal ev-L a brief holiday to
recruit a system impaired by hard work. Thi.,'e
will. always be a large per centage of those, who
can come 'iv:,, for a short stay, and, as the conve-
nience of .such visitors will vary, the hotel will have
throughout the season almost an average number
of them, in addition to those who come down for a
long stay. With some the sea voyage is a draw-
back, and to many: it i ui '*ln'tly means a pre-
sent discomfort, I'1.I: to !i0,. nij,.'ity the grand re-
sult is highly sanitary after it is over. Remember
thl -i. ". : .is part of the prescription of resort-
i,.;" to r'nm. 1i, and a valuable part of the ane-
i" .'. A sea v,.:, v, is a grand r,1 i.: %tiv,. especi-
:i'v to those who reside at a distance from the
ocean's margin, who-only know inland breezes, and
r i:.a'a as the supreme method of locomotion.
To these life in Bermuda has an entirely new face,
ann, tiny comparatively as is the whole, the novelty
and diversity are alike startling. A sea voyage
to Bermuda and a short residence, will ,L'.-,i'.1 to
those suffering from hay-fever almost, if not alto-
a'.-..:r, a perfect cure. A resort to the White
l n,-int-iiu has been found to give relief, superad-
ded a sea voyage and the enjoyment of such a ,e.-
nial climate as Bermuda, and the disease will be
almost eradicated. B-:minm'li is no suitable cli-
mate for those in t;e I. t .t-i-.-s of disease, which
demands a steadier/,'drier and warmer climate. For
the ordinary -.ubiej,. however, needing the recruit-
ing influences of a genial ei.,ar.'e, it is admirably
suited. The visitor to 1". muld.a is not cramped in
his movements, as. f_*..-.:. to several resorts on the Ri-
viera, who are restricted t.> lit tle m 'ore th!an a sentry's
beat. Here we can produce one hundred and
fifty miles of r,..-, and many by-paths, so that
the pedestrian may feel gratified to. his heart's
content, through an ever-varying panorama. Mat-
ter : vervwinr,- to arrest the curious, and to hold


the -.iontiri:. in ponderous thought. Horseback
paths or carriage drives are numerous and enter-
taining, and those who go out for a mere airing
must come in all the better. Our onions, potatoes
and tomatoes are noted. 2-s.ides we can produce
good samples of the BDiti -.. army and navy to
those who are not accustomed much to such nation-
al and .essential luxuries. We have the bi--',-:.-st
fl-i, t in' dock in 'the world; we have an attractive
<.-,y.'a-r .; we have water-whiclh for pellucid ik-lar-
-ness and richness of colour is nowhere i.pmill.d. So
that,-after all, the H-Iamiton Hoil is not situated
on a bleak and uninteresting coral reef fortuitously
cast up, but in a compact little capital, round which
cluster attractions, natural.and social, to wile away
the visitor's time, while Heaven works out its un-
fathomable mysteries. At the conclusion of the
season we trust to be able to pla':'e? <,. record that
Mr. Far, :b ain has successfully worked out his pro-
blems, and left nothing undone to add to his own
reputation, while striving to make the Hamilton
Hotel a name among the established institutions
famed as desirable Witi-tr qual-rs. The fear is
that by and bye we may have too many visitors,
and find our own population eclipsed. Still we are
generous enough to bid those who can come wel-
come, and say to those who cannot enter an appear-
-ance, "'What an J'.'f.l lot you miss by staying
away! ',

A Meeting was held at the Town Hall, Hamil-
ton, on Friday evening last, the 21st instant, for
the purpose of eon.idelring au-n adopting a series of
Rules relative to the formation of an Educational
Society. Its ulije.-t. is to raise and'invest funds for
the establishment of a School for the better educa-
tion of the peoplele.
The Meeting was largely attended by many in-
fluential residents of the different parishes. The
Rev. Mark- James, Rector of Pembroke and Devon-
shire, was pleased to preside, and opened the meet-
ing with prayer.. The object of the meeting hav-
ing been briefly stated by the Chairman, letters
were read from per.ouns unable to attend the meet-
ing, in which they expressed their good wishes for
the success of the enterprise. The Chairman then
called on the Honorary Secretary to read the min-
utes of the preliminary meetings which had been.
held from time to time in connection with this pro-
j'eted Society.
The proposed Rules for the Constitution and
government of the Society were now submitted to
those present for consideration, and after having
been carefully discussed and amended they were
finally adopted and ordered to be printed.
The books were then laid open for signatures to
the Declaration, which was numerously signed.
After which the thanks of the meeting were ten-
dered to the Rev. Chairman, who, in a few appro-
priate remarks, responded, and brought this suc-
'-*s-fil and highly entertaining meeting to a close
with the Benediction.

THE LORD M AYO!!'.'. BANQUET--A BRILLI-
ANT ASSEMBLAGE.
LoNDooN, Nov. 11.-The Lord Mayors' Banquet
took place to-night. ,'early 900guests were present.
Amo:I lthe.,n were il'r iM:ij.:.-ty's .'iniliterc ad n l their
wives, Count Von Munster, German Ambassador;
Mr. Iloppin, Unite.l States Charge de Affairs; Lord
Chelmsford, late Commander of the British forces in
South Africa; Col. Evlyn Wood, and Lord Justices
Sir William Brett and Hon. Alfred Thesiger. The
members of the Ministry, and Lord Chelmsfobrd and
Col. Wood were .warmly greeted with cheers as
they entered. The toast to the health of 11er
!n'!ij:-.ty the Queen was received with appropriate
honors. Count Vou Munster, in replying to the
toast to the. "',-ii.n Ambassadors, declared that
none were more desirous than Germany and the Ger-
man Emperor to see peace throughout the world,
o LORD BEAcONSFiELrD in rising to reply to thie. toast
of the evening-the "health of Her Majesty's Minis-
ters," was received with three times ithi ee cheers. In
the course of his speech he said the aspect of affairs was
much more satisfactory then when he last spoke on a
similar occasion. Business was now being done which
three months ;ito.would have been deemed impos-
sible. The only question now was whether the revi-
val was temporary or permanent. The opinion of
Her Majesty's Government was that the revival was
of a permanent and lasting character. Hoe thought
that the official returns demonstrated that fact, because
they shewed the revival was not local but universal.
The great Iron Industry had doubtless in a great
measure revive. owing to 'the demands from the
United States, but the returns prove that the pur-
chases of iron wcre not liitedl to the ULr it States
cr vrari'js Eluropean country.:., but were oceai.io1ed
Sby nioiciellani:ouI demands of our native industries.
Every article of tropical product had risen in value.
The chemical trde, wvhichl was a great index of pros-
p.eritty, has been unable to execute its orders. The
rise in the value of silver would, in all probability,
release Ini:i, stadesrnin of one of their greatest
perplexities. During a period of unpi eceilentedl de-
pre.-.ir li,:-r,. had not been a single meeting to ex-
prc.s lii content wiih the National Institutions. He
wished his brilliant bretheren in Ireland would be a
little more emulous of this example. iHo was at a
loss to comprehend how the poor Irish people had
,Irouglht the ielvv'e to believe that the best remedy
for (c,.i,,mic.l distress was p.,litiral agitation and
social confusion. (Loud 1,ulihtei an;i cheers,)
Doubtless there were portions of Ireland where there
would be eon-il',r.rble ,iff.'i-,ii if a remedy was not


offered. The Irish peopli:- shiiould rembn r that they
never appeal to English sympathy in vain. It would
be the duty of Her Maje-ty's ministers to watch the
condition of Ireland with the anxiety required by the
situation. The Irish people should condesend to re-
member that their harvest, though bad, and though
they wu.re much-more dependent upon it than are the
Engilid people on theirs, still was much better than the
harvesting of England. A.lilrr'sing the Lord Mayor,
Lord Beaconsfield said: \\ hen I addressed your pre-
decessor, I informed him that the Government was
contemplating large military operations in Central
Asia, the object being to strengthen and render se-
cure the north western boundary ot our Indian empire.
These operations have been signally successful, and
British influence is fully .-t'lbliv-ll.d in Central Asia.
(Loud Cheers.) Beaconsfield warmly eulogised Lord
Lytton for :i.vi'eniiig the army in Afghanistan. In
referring to South Africa, he said the recent war
there taught. the cnlonist sime i lhing aof the art of
self defence, on whhit- they'nmust in future chiefly re-
ly. We are about to effect some changes there which
will contribute to the increased happiness of the popu-
tions itmong which the coloni,.ts dwelL If I were to
view our external relations generally, I would say
that i.,twithlstandinl that Europe may be covered
with million o' arm d men, we have not merely the
hope, but the belief that peace will be maintAned if the
powet and advice of England is felt and heard ihnthe
councils of Europe, I have tile firm conviction that
peace will be maintained for a long period. (Loud
cheers) If Eng:,,i'a deserts her natural post in the
councils of Europe, war is too probable. In pro-
posing your Lordship's health, I shall at this time
next year, in all probability, have pleasure to con-
gratulate you in .,nm! skilful administration. (Loud
and prolonged cheering.)
Sir Stafford Northcoto addressed the company, and
in the course of his speech declared that the financial
position of the countryneed create no alarm.

English influence at Constantinoplec will be used.
to introduce financial reforms, which would facili-
tate the other promised reforms.


To the Ed//or of the Royal Gazetle.
A CELESTIAL FEAST.
DEAn Mr. LEE,-To those who prefer corn to
chaff the following account of what I thoroughly
enjoyed this morning may prove not only interest-
ing but also instructive especially to those who :may
be disposed to accept the invitation to partake of
thae same feast. The spread" it is true is at rath-
er an early hour, and as a cover on the table would
prove extremely inconvenient I must ask my
friends to select a day when the covers have all
" gone to wash"; a clear "board" being a sine qua
non.
Well, by special appointment I sprang from my
nest at 4'50 a.m., plucked a plume from my reserve
store and armed with this and a Papirus (paper-
ous) leaf, I lighted on the wall of a neighboring
garden and took my stand to look for one of those
wild animals that roam about at will, even over the
very heads of thousands of unconscious slumberers.
My immediate object was to find out the lair of
one of these creatures, and if fortune favored me, to
make a drawing of him.
No son of Nimiod, (nor could Diana herself), in
search of wild sport have desired wider scope for the
exercise of his aim.
Two Bears started up the moment I was perched,
-one was lying on his back when I came; he was:
the larger of the two, and hence his indifference, I.
suppose, to the fact that there was a Lynx" close
to his head and a Dragon" wriggling between
him and his smaller brother; besides a" Giraffe"
not far off-but he's a harmless herbivorous crea-
ture and had passed; he was still in sight-how-
ever, as I saw by turning a little to the left, and as
I continued to turn I suddenly saw a Bull, not far
from him. There was a military looking fellowwho
appeared to be guarding two sleeping twins; while,
two dogs seemed to be chasing the Bull, the little
one taking the lead dodging by a Giant called:
Orion who seemed to be striding across a "River"
and staying the progress of the larger dog.
Not far from the Giraffe there were, a Fox, a
Swan, and a variety of other game, including even
a Flying Horse (" Pegasus,") but the particular
gentleman I was in search of did not turn up, or at,
all events I did not detect him, so as I could not
employ the quill I had culled, in the way I intend-
ed. I thought I would endeavour to describe for
the benefit of the curious the truly gorgeous scene
that was passing before me like a pauno:ramla.
It was 5 o'clock or close on it, as I looked East,
high up in the heavens, a little South of Mount-
Langton flagstaff. Venus was shining like a little
sun, but turning my face to the North and looking
upwards, almost overhead there I beheld the great
and little Bears, "Draco" the Dragon, winliug
between them, a galaxy in themselves well worth
turning out early for-but still they sink into in-
significance on being compared with the specta, lo
around us at this hour in this season of the, year.
Looking to the West and North Casseopeia was
sinking, below the horizon but so spread out by re-
fraction as to be almost unrecognizable. Higher
up and towards the S. W: "Mars" of ruddy hue,
was approaching the horizon closely followed by
the Pleiades and the Bull of which Aldele:iran is
the principal star. Still mounting towards the
Zenith the glance will meet with Capella Auri iga:i,
and South of this and of Aldebaran, the eye lights
on Betelgeusi., R igel, andthe rest of that sublime con-
stellation known as Orion. Still further to the
South the brilliant star Procyon in Canis Minor,.
(the little dog) and Eastward of Rigel the most-
ibrilli.umt of all stars, Sirius or Alpha Canis Majori .
I have been gradually turning as on a pivot and
am now again facing that truly resplendent object
Venus which quite lights up the firmament, the,
earliest of the rays refracted to the eye of the ob-
server b.:-fore the sun's edge appears above the ho-
rizon, in other words the faintest rays of dawn be-,
gin now to blend with those of Venus and the' si-
dereal glitter that sparkles around me: still turn-
ing towards theN. E. I see Hercules, and Arctiirus
in the constellation of Bootes, contributing their no
mean quota to the general splendour,
In less time than it took me to pen the last sen-
tence a perceptible diminution in all of the stars has
become apparent." Stars of the 4th and 5th. Mag-
nitude havanow disappeared, while those of the 2nd
and 3rd assume the humbler appearance- of lesser
stars. There! Drago is gone! the Giraffe had
disappeared before him. I can still see "Polaris"
and two other stars of the Little Bear. Castor
and Pollux are the only two I can now see of the
Twins' constellation.. The glittering belt and three
others are all that are now visible of Orion. Cas-
seopeia is snuffed out, Capella is visible still and so
is Aldeb-no-yes, there he is-no-he's gone too;
so rapidly is the dawn growing; paler, and paler
grows the sky-it really is beautiful to watch the
ever minishlming brilliance of the stars. Cepheus,
the Twins, Ursa Minor, the Lynx, indeed all have
disappearedd except some three or four brilliant
gems which still contend against the rapidly advan-
cing sunlight. Six o'clock! and there go
Rigel and Betelgeuse, fainter and still fainter,
smaller and smaller, twinkle, twinkle, twink -
gone! 6*10 the dawn has fairly broken, two stars
only are visible, viz, the King of fixed Stars, Sirius,
and the Queen of Planets, Venus, and the latter
though she is not a millionth part the size of Sir-
ius will nobly hold her own and outs.hine him
sometime after he is overpowered. There! He's
gone, but she still sparkles brilliantly overhead.
To describe the splendour of the sunrise is needless,
but long after he had topped the hills, Venus as
late as 635 peered impertinently down on your
Sincere friend,
-EARLY BIRD.

occupied discussing questions constitutional and
international law in connection with subject of pro-

Canadian vessels in waters of Dominion only when
danger of loss of life or cargo absolutely imminent.
Our law permits Canadian vessels to enter our waters
freely render assistanceto American vessels, in dis.

Suggested President should declare, by proclama.

ANOTHER STEAMSHIP HORROR.

THE S. S. "ARIZONA" RUNS INTO AN
ICEBERG.
NARROW ESCAPE OF THE VESSEL WITH ALL ON BOARD.

A despatch from St. Johns, NJld., reports the
arrival there, early yesterday morning, 9th, of the S.S.
Arizona, of the Williams and Guion line, Captain
Jones, New York, Novr. 5th, for Liverpool, with
109 first-class passengers and a general cargo. The
-vessel presents a very dilapidated appearance, which
shows that she bad a most miraculous escape from
total destruction. Capt. Jones reports :-Left New
York Tuesday, Nov. 5th, and everything went well
until Friday night about nine o'clock, then on the
Grand Banks. The night was exceedingly dark,
but not foggy. The vessel was in her proper
course and going at full speed, in charge of the 2nd
officer, when all of a sudden a terrible crash was
heard. Every timber In the vessel, from stem to
stern, seemed to quiver-she had run into a mon-
ster iceberg. The deck was covered.with broken
ice. The vessel's: bows were broken into match-
wood, and the forward compartments were crushed
in. Two sailors who were sleeping in this com-.
prtment had. a narrow escape, with their lives,
being buried under the debris, but were finally
rescued. The greatest consternation existed among
the -pansengers and crew, who, immediately after
the tremendous shock sustained by the vessel, rush-
ed on deck in the wildest excitement. The cool-
ness of Captain Jones and his officers, aided by Mr.
S. B. Guion, one of the owners, who happened to be
on board, however, prevented a panic. On exam-
ination it was found that there was no immediate
danger for the safety of those on board, and with
ordinary weather St.Johns could be reached. The
vessel was immediately headed for that port, where
where she arrived early yesterday morning. The
Arizona is one of the newest vessels on the line, and
was considered one of the best appointed steam-
ships in the world. Her running time was claimed
to be the best on record. It will be at least a
month before shb can be repaired and put in a suit.
able condition to resume her voyage. The passed.
gers will be taken to their destinations in the Allan
S S Caspian from Halifax, which will call at St.
John's on Thursday, and the Williams & Guion S.
S. Nevada from New York, which has been ordered
to call at St. Johns.
Additional Particulars.-Despatches frpm St.
Johns this morning are to the effect that the dam-
age to the Arizona is not as serious as at first re-
ported. The bow, o(course is badly smashed, but
the superior build of the vessels of the Williams &
Gnlon line render it almost impossible to do them
serious injury, the compartment plan rendering
them sale at sea, even if almost cut in two. It
seems impossible at first to understand how a care
ful watch would let the vessel approach so close to
an iceberg of such dimensions, but like-many other
things in nature, icebergs have two sides-one
bright and easily seen, the other dark and impossi-
ble to be seen at times in daylight. The last libree
years ice has been rarely met with where it used
formerly to be very abundant, andi ag a consequence
danger is -not anticipated. A veteran steamship
captain informed our reporter this morning that
the only way to do in crossing the Ranks is to be
always on the look out for ice. He had -once to
keep his men posted- alongside the ship to listen for
the ripple of the water on the icebergs, so inteqse was
the darkness, and he has sailed five days in.the
ice without making* more than one good da3',s
mileage., .
Among the passengers on board the Aritona, at
th(be time of the accident, were the following from
Bermuda: Colonel W. L. MNILrison, R. E., and
Mrs. Morrilon, Mr. S. S. Ingham, Lieutenant
Beauchamp, 40th Regt., an'! Asst. Commissary G.
Blenkensop. We are told that Payriaster Mas-
terson, R. N., late of the Terror, was also on boat d
but his name does not appear on the official list of
her passengers kindly handed us. -[Ed. R. 0.] d

MUTINY AT SEA. I
A Dritish Shipmaestle Attacked by Two Desperadoes-
His Life Saved by a Heroic Dauglder-The Muti-
neers brought into Key West.
KEY W-ET, Fla., Nov..5.-A mutiny occurred 6h
Saturday night, a little after twelve o'clock, about
forty miles from T'ort ugas, on the British brig George
S. Berry, Captain Howard, from Pensacola fqr
Montevideo. Two seamen, with knives, attacked
the Captain, who was unarmed, throwing him upon
thedeek and inflicting fourteen cuts in his body.
His face is also cut badly, his nose being cut in
two. The mutiny lasted fifteen minutes. Captain
Howard fell exhausted at his daughter's window
and called to her for a pistol The-daughter, Ida,
eighteen years of age and good looking, was asleep.
She rushed on deck, when a seaman grappled her
by the breast. She presented a revolver, when th
mutineers ran forward. The mate ran the vesse
into Tortugas, when the mutineers were lashed t
the rail by two light keepers and the vessel wa
brought into this port, where the men are lodged
in jail. Captain Howard is doing well.
The Midnight Attack.-The crew were shipped a
Pensacola except the mate, Thomas Britt a sea-
man, was at the wheel, and Welh 'came on deck.
While the captain was walking the deck, and thb
mate had gone forward, Welch came behind the
captain and stabbed him in the back. Captain
Howard grappled him, and was .about to take the
knife away, when Britt left the wheel and alsa
attacked the captain with a knife, saying, Now
then, knife him good." Captain Howard was cut
three times in the throat and neck, and received


several severe cuts on. the arms, head and back.
The mulineers ran forward, and with the assis-
tance of others launched a boat.
A Brave Girl.-Ida C. Howard, sworn before the
United States Commissioner here, said :-I am
a daughter of Captain Howard. On the night of
November 1, after midnight,Il was awakened.byr.a
scuffle on the starboard side of the quarter deck near
my room; I put on my dress; heard papa call,
"Bring me my revolver, Ida:" went on deck and
placed it against Welch's head and said, Go yQu
rascal, or I fire ;" he caught me by my dress, whice
now shows marks of blood, and then made a alush
around my head with a knife, but it did not cut;
then I bent down over papa; Britt ran forward aid
Welch followed; I handed papa the revolver an
ran to the cook's room, called him and came back k
saw four men standing at the boat, and papa stand
ing on deck said, "I've got you now, my bullies,'
and fired ; when I first came on deck my father hab
no weapon, and was lying on the deck; h<
was all bloody ; the deck was so bloody that I slip.
ped in the blood, which came over my feet.
The seaman's hand is cut, where the knife slipped
through it; also on the knee, whih ,was cut in th,
scuffle.--Net York Paper. :. :

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


Fotr Days Later from Europe.
We have been very obligingly favoured with
Halifax papers of the 13th instant, brought by H.
M. S. Bellerophon, which furnish us with four days,
later news from Europe, &c., than we were before
in possession of.
AFGHANISTAN.-CALCOTTA, Nov. 10.-The
principal event of the pant week has been the junc-
tion of Cabul and J'ellatabad columns at Krittyseng
on Thursday. Thisjunction having been effected
the Kbyberaine and Jagdalek route will become
the sole line of communication with Cabul.
Everything is going on quietly at Cabul. The
English troops are housed in Shierpur Cantonment
which are very comfortable. Winter is setting in
early. .
Suspicion which rested on Yakoob Khan and
which was temporarily removed, is again setting
on him.
LONDON, Nov. 9.--The Roman Catholic Bishops
of Ireland adopted resolutions appealing to the Gov-
ernment and to all public bodies and private indi.
viduals, to help the poor, as the Poor Law Act is
insufficient to meet the necessities of the Impending
crisis.
English influence at Constantin6ple will be used
to iptroduce financial reforms, which would facili-
tate the other promised reforms. A Vienna paper
says that the British and Russian Governments are
endeavoring to come to an understanding regarding
affairs in Central Asia.
i The British Government have prohibited the im-
portation of American sheep after Nov. 23rd, ex-
cept for slaughter.

tinople reports that the director of Press has order-
ed the Turkish newspapers to desist from attacking

bagff returned to Constantinople from Livadia, he
advised the Porte to fulfil the wishes of England
regarding Asia Minor.
A telegraph frbm Valparaiso announces the cap-
lure of Pisaqua, Peru, by Chiliane..
VIENNA, Nov. 12.-If the reported retirement
of-Gortschakoff is correct it may be inferred that
the approach of St. Petersburg towards Berlin and
resignation of Gor(sebakoff were not altogether
disconnected events.
-LoNDON, Nov. 12.-Lord Dufferin, ambassador
Jto Russia, has gone to St. Petersburg via Paris.
Sabouff, Russian Minister in Greece, who suc-
oeeds' Labanoff at Constantinople, .will not go to

"finds:to continue operations. :
;I PARHS, Nov. 10.--Two sons of Philippart re-
signed their seats as directors of the Banque Euro-
peanne.
' Caproberts' return as Senator is not a Bonapar-
'ist manifestation, but be was elected as champion
of party of order as practical protest against recent
communista elections of H umbert and Farrel.
PARIs, Nov. ll.-The press here is mostly dis-
appointed in Beacon-field's speech on account of
;ts omis8ionf., In diplomatic circles the speech
occasioned neither surprise nor disappointment.
VIENNA, Nov. 11 .-The oft-rminoured resignati-
,on of Gorlachakoff has become a fact. The Foreign
Department will be conducted by DeGiers until a
successorr is appointed.
SVINNA, Nov. 12.-The Tagblatt newspaper says
the treaty of alliance concluded between the Balkan
Principalities is ostensibly against foreign inter-
vention in the affairs of the Balkan States, but
really against Austria. The treaty stipulated that
In the event of Austria extending operations be-
yond Novi Bazar, Sophia will furnish 120,000 men,
Montenegro 20,000 and Bulgaria 90,000, to form
an allied army, and Sophia will advance Montene-
gro 75,000 ducats for military expenses. The ap-
pointment of Commander-in-Chief of the allied
force is left open, but it is believed the appoint-
ment of a Russian General was originally contem-
plated. -
MADRID, Nov. 8.-A correspondent telegraph
that well informed persons say that if Premier Mar-
tinez Campos does not carry the abolition bill and
tariff reforms in West Indies, on a free trade basis,
he, with the support of Senor Canovas Jet Castillo,

SBERiti;N, Nov. ,1.-A correspondent, discussing
the French Ambassador's visit, to Varizin, says

sitatea fresh understanding between. France and
( Germany. .


LONDON, Oct. 27.-For some. time past English
Liberals have been anxiously looking to their leaders
for a few planks to form a platform with, but as yet
none have been vouchsafed. On last Friday evening
the Marquis of Hartington gave an address at Man-
chester to a crowded audience, in reply to the Mar-
quis of Salisbury's speech in the same place last
week; but like his subordinate, Sir W. Harcourt,
Lord H's ,utterances were simply a denunciation of
the whole policy of the Government; not one single
subject either of home or foreign policy, upon which
Sthe Liberals can go to the country, was touched upon.
The old, old cry of "Peace, Retrenchment, and Re.,
form," is now too value, and hbas been worn to tatters,
15


We want something more decided. The process of
boiling down a two hours speech until it becomes a
simple extract, is not very satisfactory, but it is all
that I dare venture upon, or your space and my
readers' patience would be soon exhausted. Lord
H. says, "reforms are greatly needed," but his
Lordship is too timid to mention what they are; but
the policy of "I dare not wait upon if I would." will
not carry any ministry to power at the present time ,
In speaking of party differences Lord H. accusesthe
Tory Government of carrying everything by their
large Majority"-that must be a new idea to his
Lordship-and then he says "that no man's person-
al opinions ought to interfere with his party allegi-
ance." In alluding to Foreign Policy, Lord H. says,
" I venture to think that I am acquainted with the
opinions of moderate Liberals, and I have yet to
learn that there is anything in the Foreign Policy,
as approved by the Opposition, which is especially
repugnant to the feelings of moderate Liberals"-
just so the Liberal leaders have not approved any
foreign policy, nor will any one of them advocate the
repudiation of the Treaty of Berlin, or the surren-
der of Cyprus or Afghanistan, or even Zululand, or
question Englaud's approval of the Austro-German
alliance. Lord H. says that the people have lost all
confidence in the Conservatives dealing with domes-
tic questions, and concludes "It is now time the
country should arouse from the domestic and legis-
lative apathy which has fallen upon it during the
last five years," but not even a rush-light will his
Lordship hold out to us. Unfortunately there are no
elear lines of Home Policy upon which all Liberals
can agree.
In Scotland 41s. is the price of education per
head, and the Government have informed the Edu-
cational Department that 42s. per head is the
amount to which the London School Board ought
to limit its expenses. The School Board refer
themselves to the ratepayers a3i the best judges.
Miss Colenso, a daughter of the Bishop of Natal, is
now engaged writing a history of the Zulu war.
According to the "Journal des Fabriquants ade
Sucre," the deficit in the beet crop will amount to
between 25 and 50 per cent compared with last
year. The crop will scarcely exceed, itit at all ex-
ceeds, that of 1876.
CINCINNATI, Oct. 26.-hirteen temperance wo-
men destroyed all the liquor in the saloons in
Fredericktown, Ohio, on Saturday, and threaten the
drug stores with similar treatment on Monday.
We all change as we grow old. Douglas Jerrold
once said : Women are all alike. When they
are maids they are mild as milk; once make 'em
wives and they lean their backs against their mar-
riage certificates and defy you."

ENLIST MAILS FROM HALIFAX.-r-The first direct
weekly Mail from Halifax to England will leave that
Port on the 29th instant. During the winter months
the Mails for Newfoundland will be conveyed by a
direct line from Halifax.

The vacancy, in the List of Inspectors Generals of
Hospitals and Fleets, occasioned by the death of W. 3.
Domville, C.B., M.D., mentioned in our Gazette of
