ARRIVAL OF THE MAIL STEAMER FLAM-
The Mail Steamer Flamborough, Captain Fraser,
from New York, did not reach her Wharf in this
Harbour till the morning of Tuesday last. We are
informed that the Flamborough left her Pier in
New York at the customary hour on Thursday the
20th ult., but owing to a heavy gale which pre-
vailed at the time, could not get the pilot off; had,
consequently, to anchor outside of Sandy Hook for
the night. At 7 o'clock on the morning of the 21st
a boat having come alongside which took the Pilot
off, the F. immediately proceeded on her voyage.
Made the Bermuda lights on Monday evening and
entered the Channel soon after daylight on Tues-
We are indebted to Captain Fraser, Mr. Purser
Gale, and to Steward Skelly, for files of New York
papers of the 20th ult.

,The floods have subsided and the rains have
ceased, but they have done an immense amount of
damage to the roads of the country, which it will
take months to repair. Nearly a hundred lives
have been lost by the floods, chiefly at the east end
of the island. The coffee crop has suffered heavily
by the rain. -

with having used language in public speeches cal-

ed in Castlebar for the same cause.
LONDON, Nov. 20.-At the Home rule conference
here, to-night, it was resolved to hold an early mass
meeting of Irish inhabitants and all sympathisers to
protest against the arrest of l)aly, Killen and Dav-
itt. All Home Rule members of Parliament resi-
dent in London will be invited to attend.
Irish organizations in Liverpool, Leeds, Newcas-
tie, Birmingham and Glasgow have determined to
make public protests.
At a meeting of Home Rule organizations in
North London, Southwark and Greenwich, to-night,
it was resolved to assist the promoters of the land

has deferred his visit to the United States in conse-

his journey still further.

The Shock in the Saloi,.-The shock of the col-
lision was felt in the saloon even more severely than
on the upper deck. At the moment it occurred
Miss Goslett was playing the accompaniment to the
glee, "See Our Oars with Feathered Spray," which
was being sung by some ladies and gentlemen. In
the midst of th9 song the shock threw the occu-
pants of the saloon violently from their seats. Miss
Kiddie, of Kincardie, Scotland, was thrown violently
across the cabin, sustaining severe internal injuries
and a slight scalp wound The force of the fall was
broken by the presence -of mind of Mr. Carr, who
sustained injuries to his knee while endeavoring to
arrest her downward course. Many ladies were
frightened:almost to death. They sought refuge in
each other's arms and wept from very terror, at the
unknown catastrophe which all felt had overtaken
them." Some few showed remarkable coolness and
nerve and tried their best to console their more tim-
orous sisters. In this good work they were aided
by husbands and friends,iwho sought to conceal their
own anxiety the better to cheer the failing spirits ol
their fair ci.Iomipanuiins.

feet. Should one of these ice steeples topple over

ST. JoHNS, N. F., Nov. 9.-The steamship Ari-
zona, of the Guion line, sailed from New York on
the morning of Tuesday, November 4, having on
board 300 souls-all told-passengers and crew.
She was the. pioneer ship of a fleet destined to com-
pete in fleetness and commodiousness with the White
Star line, and was 464 feet long, 46 feet in breadth
of beam and 37 feet in depth of hold. She had a
gross tonnage of 5,400 tons. Her engines nominally
were of 1,200 horse power, working up to 6,000
indicated; nor did her performance belie her pro-
Neptune Propitious.-The weather dncountered on
leaving New York was most propitious and her first
day's log shoWed that 380 miles had been traversed.
The passengers were loud in their praise of her
fleetness and stability, and every one on board pro-
phesied that she would make the quickest passage
Among the passengers were Mr. S. B. Guion, the
owner of the ship, his isite and two young nieces,
and it was held that their presence was a double
guarantee of the cnetral safety. Mr. Pierrepoint
Edwards, the British Vice Consul at New York and
his wife; Mr. J., B. Colgate, the banker, who figured
in the Tilden income tax law suit; Mr. James J.
O'Kellv. the famous 'Cubau correspondent of the
New York Herald, and Mr. L. Coudert, the well
known lawyer, acomipinied by his young son.
These with seventy others, made up the list of
saloon passengers, Three hundred and sixty-three
miles were made in the second day's run, and the
log of the third day showed the same result.
In the track of Icebergs.--The Arizona was now
well on the Banks of Newfoundland; and one day
more would have put her beyond their ice infested'
shore. Not an hour's fog had been encountered,
and even the nights were clear. Under these
circumstances Captain Thomas Jones, who com-
manded, felt justified in running his ship at full
speed and an average rate of fifteen miles an hour
was maintained on the third day out.4 The wind,
which had been favorable, chopped round, and all
sail was taken down. .The fourth day resembled
its predecessors and brought us bracing, enjoyable
weather. Not a threatening cloud was in the sky
and the wind Was just sufficient to ripple the surface
of the ocean. The- Arizona was behaving magnifi-
cently. She rode the, wave, like a swan and won
words of warm applause from every creature aboard.
If ever ship promised to-bear her living freight in
joyful triumph to a safe haven, the Arizona was
that ship. The fates, too, seemed propitious, and
men who had er .sed the Atlantic half a hundred
times declared that never in all their experience
had they known such beautiful weather.
Pools on the Ship's Speed.-Day after day the sea
spread out placid as a fairy lake, and fair winds
wafted us toward the Europen shore. We were
then in latitude 47 degrees north and longitude 53
degrees west On board all was peaceful confidence
and hope. After dinner, on Friday, according to
their wont, the ladies sat in the, saloon and whiled
away the hours with gleeful song, while a number
of the gentlemen occupied Social Hall"' (the smok-
ing room) and amused themselves selling pools on the
run at auction. As a large number of the passen-
gers were buyers for American commercial houses
the latter pastime was entered into with peculiar
zest. Mr. J. 0. Bedell, who had act-d as auctioneer,
had just completed his labrs for the night, and
considerable amusementwas raised at his expense
owing to the lowest number having been left on his
hands through his efforts to extort a high price from
a pool syndicate which had been formed by three
enterprising gentlemen of a speculative turn. The
auctioneer's voice was silent, and Mr. S. S Ingham,
Jr., of Bermuda, who acted as secretary, sat at a
table receiving the money. Fifteen pounds sterling
hal been paid in, and jibe and joke were still being
bandied at the auctioneer's expense.
A Terrible Interruption.-Suddenly there was a
crash and the money gatherer and his gold and silver
were hurled on the floor. The jibing voices ceased
and terror seized u pon every soul. Half the occu-
pants of the room were sprawling on the floor and
the rest were rushing from the place with blanched
faces and palpitating hearts. The crash was terrific,
and as the stout hull of the magnificent ship trem-
bled from the shock the boldest heart grew still.
Terror was depicted on many faces, but the only
cry heard was that of warning voices of brave men-
"Steady gentlemen, steady Keep cool !"
Brave words, not spoken in vain The first
movement of alarm died away and:a true manhood
resumed its sway. During the hours of terror
which followed no coward word was spoken. Save
in a'few instances the conduct of the passengers
was magnificent and the officers did their duty like
Crashing upon Icy Death.--Captain Jones had
quitted the bridge at nine o'clock, leaving the ship
in charge of the officer of the watch, John Wyrn

overcast, was not dark, no danger was apprehended"
Ten minutes later the ship, going at topmost speed,
plunged head on into a' mountain of ice. The huge
ship trembled like an aspen leaf and rec,.iled, but

A i'EVEDY FOR DIPTHERIA.
IMPERIAL RUSSIAN L1. -; :".:.
WASHINGTON, cv. 16, 1879.
To tihe Editor of the Herald .-
In view of the increase of ",....-, in several
places of the State of New York 1 hasten to com-
municate to you for publicity a very simple -,
which, having been :-:5 in Russia and Germany,
may prove c-'i ii--,, here. Out of several others,
.Dr. Letzericb, who made extensive experiments in
the application of this remedy, has used it in
twenty-seven cases, eight of 1;. were of a very
serious nature, all of which had a favorable result
except in one case, when the child died from a co"m-
plication of diseases. For children of one year he
prescribes the remedy, for internal use every one or
two hours, as follows:-
NATR. BENZOIC, pur. 5.0 solve. in aq. distillat aq.
in-uith, piper. ana 40.0 syr. cort. aur. 10.0.
For children from one to three years old he pre-
scribed it from seven to i,.b, grammes for 100
grammes of distilled water, with some y:"pl; for
children from three toseven years old he ,, '--," ib,,
ten to fifteen grammes, and for grown persons from
fifteen to twenty-five grammes for .':..: 100
Besides this he uses also with .,.::.! success the
insufflation on the diptherial membrane through a
glass tube in serious cases every three bours, in
light cases three times a day of the natr. benzoic
pulver. For grown '-i'le he prescribes f6r gargling
a dilution of ten gra nmes of this pulver for 20C
grammes of water.
The effect of the remedy is rapid. After twenty-
four or thirty-six hours the for'ecis-h symptoms dis-
appear com!'letly and the temperature and pulse
become normal. This remedy was used also with
the same success by Dr. Braham Braun and Profes-
sor Klebs, in Prag; Dr. Senator, in Cassel, and
several others in Russia and Germany.
. Hoping that the publication through your widely
spread paper will prove beneficial in the United
States, I remain, yours, very truly,
Minister of Russia to the United States.

THE PRINCESS LOUISE.
TORONTO, Ontario, Nov. 19.--A special cable
from London to the "1Gl,)-." says there is reason
to belive that the return of the Princess Louise to
1 .;,:_',, .d is not entirely a matter of i.1-: '.te, but is
attributable in a large extent to the interest she
takes in the h ,c!," .. of a company for the devel-
opement and colonization of lands in Manitoba and
in the territory abutting on Lake Winnepeg. An
association has already been formed- for this pur-
pose under the title of the Lake Winnepeg Land

Campbell is one of the directors of this company.

one of his letters to the' Dagblad: "About 10
at night a flame began to ascend from the northern
horizon, its centre being due north. It was fol-
lowed by several others, which slowly approached
the zenith, losing gradually something of their in-
tensity, which, however, they recovered when they
disappeared towards the southern horizon. The
flames were perfectly white, and the heavens were
soon covered with flaming arches, which pre-
sented a splendid appearance against the dark
sky, in which the stars shone brilliantly. Toward
midnight the phenomena became more disturbed.
In a large broad band which passed through the
zenith, the light of all the hues of the rainbow,
waved forward and. backward, without its being
possible to say whether the light waves came from-
east or west; but toward the east the flame was eEpe-
cially flickering, and here a flaming torch'arose
above the horizon, from which immense flames of
light issued and again returned.' The band sud-
denly became weaker, while the torch, flaming
wildly, became larger, and from the zenith a nuam-
ber ol light yellow rays shot out in all' directions.
This lasted about a quarter of an hour, when the
former arches reappeared, gradually disappearing
toward the Nor.th Pole. No sound was heard
while the startling phenomenon was observed."
FAIL LOF MONTGOMERY'S ROCK.
QUEBEC, Nov. 17,-About two o'clock yesterday
morning several large blocks of rock from the cliff
immediately above the spot where General Mont-
gomery fell, loosened doubtless by recent heavy
rains, came down into the street below with a
crash, completely demolishing a fence which had
been erected there. There are no buildings in the
locality in question. At eight a.m. a mass of earth
lell at the same place. The scene of the slide was
visited by a large number of people.
How many tears, what anxious cares were Known
That buried lie in ashes of the dead.
How much of great resolve and patient toil,
What aspirations for a truer sphere,
Made beautiful and fragrant to us still,
The transient lives of those who journeyed here.
How many here have shown abiding faith,
And love as constant as their very breath !
I Here some awoke at first to mortal life,
And some have closed their weary eyes in death.
These memories consecrate the rudest spot,
Forever dear to us though far we roam,
Whene'er we turn, amid our busy life,
A reverent look upon our early home
Dr. Joseph Wolff, the famous Asiatic traveller,
was emphatically a man fitter for the desert than
the drawing-room. His journey, unaccompanied,
to Bokhara in 1845, to ascertain the fate of the
murdered English residents, ranks with the boldest
exploits of modern times ; but he brought back to
Europe all the barbarous habits of the East, and
fully merited'the nickname of Wolf in sheep's
clothing," given him in allusion to the clerical
white tie which he sometimes wore. He frequently
slept on the floor of his room- ,t-t. of going to
bed, and would seat ,i.. i:f :.-::-! .,:i on the
carpet, even in the houses of h. h ied. One of
the latter :',-.u.i :', him by saying, quietly,
You had better take a chair, Doctor," and Wolff
did so, but only to return to the Eastern f-.i,-1i n on
his very next visit. His personal slovliness was
such that one of his titled friends, in London was in
the habit of ir-.i;r. him aside to be "tidied up,"
before letting 'iLai i n the gauntlet of the drawing-
room. His vis-a-vis at a fasnionable dinner-party,
ch ;i. :: at the sight of the Doctor's grimy hand
standing out in bold relief against the snow-white
table-cloth, ,.Li- ; ied to his neighbor, "Good gra-
cious, what a black paw !" I'll lay you five pounds
Sir," said Wolff, overhearing the remark, that I
find you a blacker in this very company." "Done"
answered the guest. The Docter instantly produc-
ed his other hand, and was unanimously admitted
to have won his wager.
'T E FIGURE NINE.
No., --iiur appears Io bold such a conspicuous
place mathematically, as the 9. It would appear
to be idistruetible,for in c?rtainri rel ni:- to others,
it ;'iv i'.' 1 makes its appearance again. Take,
for instance the year 1881, and it proves itself to
be qfiil a curiosity. From left to right and from
rijt., to l it reads the same; 1881 divided by 2
gives 9 as a qu,':v,-nt.: 81 divided by 9-and 8 is
the quotation. If 1881 is di'ic;3 by 209, 9 is the
quotient; if divided by 9, the qn'lii'E.t contains a
9; if multiplied by 9, the product contains two 9s.
One and 8 are 9, 8 and 1 are 9. If the 18 be placed
under the 81, and added the sum is 99. If the fig-.
ures be added thus, 1, 8, 8, 1, it will give 18.
Reading from left to right is 18; and reading from
right to left is 18; and 18 is two-ninths of 81. By
adding, dlivi'ding and multiplying nineteen 9s are
pr.d i .ce, beoin; oce 9 for each year required to
complkcie th iolury. Two nines are 18, add the
quotient and the product is 9; 3 nines are 27, 7
and 2 are 9; 4 nines are 36, 6 and 3 are 9; 5 nines
are 45, 5 and 4 are 9.. Ina this way the figure nine
may be carried on to infinity. Add, divide or
multiply as often as you please and the nine still
continues to turn up. Mathematically its exist-
ence is immortal; and nothing can annihilate it;
and for this reason alone, it may be that the ancient
heathen created the Nine muses, the inspiratory
goddess of the Poets, who are said to be clothed
WELL ANSWERED.-" This Is my last call," re-
marked a flipnint young gentleman to a young
lady who was soon to be married. "I never call
on married woman, or unmarried ladies after they
have reached twenty-five."-" You do well, sir,'
gravely replied an elderly lady present. At that,
age, and after marriage, they begin to know the
value of time, and do not like to waste it."

Mr. Tynes withdrew his proposed amendment.
The Attorney General's motion was agreed to.
The House resumed and adopted the Resolve,
and it was ordered to be engrossed.
The following Messages from His Excellencythe
R. M. LAFFAN,
Governor and Commander-in- Chief.
The Governor has the honor to forward for the
consideration of the Honorable House of Assembly
a cepy ot a letter dated 20th November, 1879, ad-
dressed to him by the Colonial Surveyor, request-
ing him to bring under the consideration of the
Legislature the difficulties he encounters in trying
to carry out the numerous and multifarious duties
now accumulated on his office, and the heavy ex-
pense to which he is put in trying by rapidity of
movement to give the necessary amount of super-
vision to the many scattered public works which
are being carried on under his charge.
Mr. Ness points out that since he was appointed
to the office he now holds the duties of that office
have been greatly multiplied and that much new
work in connection with the Board of Works, and
the contract for Steam Communication with New
York has been superadded to what may be consi-
dered to be the usual duties of a Colonial Sur-
Under these circumstances Mr. Ness expresses
a hope that some reasonable money allowance may
be made to him to enable him to keep a horse and
a conveyance to take him about from place to
place to direct the progress of Public Works and
to exercise a vigilant supervision over Contractors
and Workmen and yet leave him,,sufficient time to
prepare the Reports and Plans and Estimates
which are required for the information of the Colo-
nial Government and of the Legislature.
The Governor thinks it right to remind the Hon-
orable House of Assembly that a new Prison is
about to be constructed in 'Hamilton entirely on
Plans and Estimates furnished by the Colonial
Surveyor, and that the erection of that building
will be carried out under Mr. Ness' personal super-
vision and that the Honorable House has asked
the Governor to procure for it Plans and Estimates
of a Clock Tower in connection with the Sessions'
House and that those Plans and Estimates must
be prepared by the Colonial Surveyor and that the
Clock Tower also must be 'carried out under the
Colonial Survevor's personal supervision, while he
is at the same time charged with the task of super-
intending the maintenance and upkeeping of all the
Put lie Roads and all the Public Buildings in these
Islands, and keeping the records and conducting
the correspondence of the Board of Works.
The Governer thinks that it will be impossible
for the Colonial Surveyor to perform efficiently all
this mass of woik without incurring an expendi-
ture for conveyance from place to place which the-
Colonial Surveyor c6n scarcely be expected to pro-
vide from his own resources, and the Governor
feels confident therefore that it will be for the'in-
terests of this community if the Honorable House
of Assembly thinks fit to vote a moderate annual
allowance to the Colonial Surveyor to defray the
cost of keeping a horse and a conveyance to enable
that officer to perform his public duties with satis-
faction to himself and benefit to the Colony.
In expressing this opinion however the Governor
has no wish to curtail or in any -way impair or
diminish the special power and privilege of the
Honorable House of Assembly to decide primarily
what shall be the nature and the amount of every
charge upon the public revenues of this Colony.
It is for the Governor to recommend any expen-
diture which he may think would promote the wel-
fare and prosperity of the Community but it is for
the Honorable House of Assembly especially to
decide bow far such expenditure can be authorised
with a due regard to the financial resources of the
Public Buildings, Hamilton,
26th November, 1879.
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to-forward for -the
consideration of the Honorable House of Assembly
a copy ota letter dated 17th November, 1879, ad-
dressed by the Medical Superintendent of the Lu-
natic Asylum to the Colonial Secretary requesting
that official to submit to the consideration of the
Governor the Medical Superintendent's Petition
for an increase of salary and requesting the Co-
lonial Secretary to move-the Governor to lay the
petition before the two Houses of the Legislature
and to recommend it for their favourable considera-
The Medical Superintendent points out that since
be was appointed to the charge of the new Asylum
his duties have been so much Increased that be is
debarred from availing himself except to a very
limited extent of the privilege of private practice
which be had looked forward to as a help to his
The Governor has much pleasure in bearing
testimony to the zealous manner in which Dr.
Hinson as Medical officer of the Asylum attends to
the health and the well being of his patients and as
general Superintendent and manager exercises an
effective supervision Over the, internal discipline
and expenditure and protects the interests of the
public and the Governor would see with pleasure
a moderate increase made to Dr. Hinson's salary.
In expressing this opinion however the Governor
has no wish to curtail or in any way impair or di-
minish the special power and privilege of the Hon-
orable House of Assembly to decide primarily what
shall be the nature and the amount of every charge
upon the public revenues of this Colony.
It is for the Governor to recommend any expen-

PARNELL'S MONEY-RAISING SCHEME.
A BIsHoP's WHOLESALE DENUNCIATION.
Bishop Hendericken, himself an Irishman by
birth, said to his congregat-ion at Providence, R.I.,
the other day-"Some there are who ask for money
to plunge the country into revolution, money to
buy up ships and prey upon English commerce, to
buy gunpowder and dynamite to blow up barracks,-
but the people should take ,heed and discounte-
nance all ,such wild revolutionary schemes. Ire-
land will never be made free from this side of the
water. If asked to subscribe to keep up a peaceable
agitation and send men of the right stamp to Par-
liament, that is right, reasonable and proper, but
don't give your money to every one who comes
shouting for Ireland and professes all sorts of im-
practicable measures. Some men boast of being
able to free Ireland, and yet cannot make them-
aelves independent; never, perhaps, fired off a gun
or revolver in their lives. These are the kind of irish
politicians who stand around bar-rooms, and, amid
the froth and foam of beer, shout hurrah for Ire-
land and want to have a fight. You, my dear
people, love Ireland and so do I; but let no one of
us be led by a shillelah politician."- New York
For the Bermuda. Royal Ga:etta.
DABn Mn. EDrron,-It is all very well for Early
Bird to talk about people preferring corn to chaff
and to invite them to Celestial feasts in the middle
of the night, but it is not everybody who can
afford to turn night into day, and I being a worker,
find quite enough to do in the day time.
Of course Early Bird is obliged to be up betimes,
or he ,would never pick up the worm which enables
him and his family to break their fast, but I must
confess I have always had a bad opinion of
that unnecessarily early worm and I think his be-
ing snapped up served him quite right for -setting
such an absurd and disagreeable example. In
these modern times people have quite enough to
do without making the day longer than it is.
But to come to the point of my letter which is to
give notice to all those who are fond of the chaff
which Early Bird seems to disdain so much, that I
think I can on Thursday next the 4th of Decem-
ber, offer them a much more enticing banquet than
that of Early Bird, and with this great advantage
which all sensible people like you, Mr. Editor and
myself,-will be sure to appreciate, that instead of
depriving themselves of their natural rest in order
to enjoy it they may partake of it at a time when
doctors tell us the body is best prepared to digest
and assimilate its food-namely, from noon to sun-
It is true, I have no hopes of being able to exhi-
bit such a wonderful and varied menagerie as
Early Bird, but on the other hand, as to military
looking fellows guarding sleeping twins I am sure
I can beat him hollow at that. I shall be able to
shew him Sons of Mars and Sons of Neptune too
by the dozen, not only watching over the dear
cherubs themselves, but taking tender and loving
care of the nursemaids into the bargain-and
though I can't match him in wild animals yet I
think my flying horses will surpass any he may be
able to bring against them. There is sure also to
be the inevitable dog, but instead of charging a
Bull he will himself be pursued by Mars, by whom
he will be turned out of his course and he will fi-
nish by suddenly disappearing from the field of
In the way of Gods and Goddesses I expect to
have a grand show.-Mars and Neptune will be
met with at every turn, and you may be quite sure
that Venus will appear in her most radiant beauty,
even brighter and mord resplendent than when
seen by Early Bird, and it is expected that she
will light up the firmament to such an extent as to
dazzle all beholders. Juno and Minerva may be
there too, but it is well known that they cannot
hold a candle to Venus, this however will be of
very little consequence. for the Starlight will be so
remarkably brilliant as to preclude any necessity
for smaller lights.-A faint rumor has also reached
me that we may hope for a glimpse of that cele.
brated planet Vulcan who appeared in the same
place about the same time last year-but some of
his admirers have grave fears lest he may be
eclipsed by a thick and powerful Fog which
learned men expect will prevail in that locality at
the same date. If this prove correct we must hope
that some means of consolation will be found for
him before the end of the day.
But I must not trespass too much upon your
time dear Mr. Editor, for I have no doubt that
you, following my example, labour hard to improve
each shining hour, so I will only add that I am
quite sure that all those who avail themselves of
my invitation will have no cause to regret taking
the advice of
THE BUSY BEE.
InELAND IsLADm, 29th Novr., 1879.
Mn. EDrroR,-I regret very much, in a certain
sense, that I am compelled to trespass on your va-
luable time and space in the "Royal Gazette" and
I assure you I did not intend to take further notice
of Mr. Hurley's Challenge in last Tuesday's paper
"Seeing that he has entirely evaded my answer to
his former Challenge," and still persists in going
to Hamilton Harbour, to get cured of his infirmi-
ties, this being his favorite Bethsaida"-(and
I would here say to him by way of advice, if he
gets healed to go in peace and sin no more") but
observing that there is another Richmond in the
field, I think it right to say a few words of kindly
admonition to this hanger on of Mr. H's and any
others, who like him, might wish to bask in his
sunshine, and that is to be discreet and not meddle
with things that is not in their reach, for I certain-
ly cannot see how anything connected with the
late Skiff Races in the Dockyard Regatta effected
2nd Corpl. Downes, R.E., who does not himself
intend to figure in the Lists but will get some one
else to do the needful for him. It reminds me of
the Schoolboy, who, having got thrashed by his
schoolmate, threatens his pugnacious acquaintance
with his big Brother.
I now beg to state, for the information of Cor-
poral Downes, or any other Pal of illine" that I
am no champion oarsman, nor have I ever pro-
fessed to be such,-and it was entirely by chance
that I ever pulled in the late Skiff Races, one of
the original crew of the "Amy" haviagbeen taken
ill; consequently I was asked to pull and I did
so. Not only has this been known to Mr. Hurley
and all concerned in the Races, but to most of the
people of the Island. Furthermore 1 beg to say
will not hold myself in any way bound to answer
the Challenge of any person or persons not imme-
diately connected with the late Skiff Races, having
already stated the full terms under which I will
enter the lists (" in your Gazette of the 18th Inst.)
THE HESSIAN FLY'S RAVAGES.
CIxNCINNATI Ohio, Nov. 9.-Reports from South-
ern Indiana.and some place in Kentucky say the
wheat plants have been attacked by the IH c-i:n fly
in a way that threatens the desi ruction of the crop.
The larva of the fly are found in the stalks of the
healthiest plants. Farmers think they will winter
safely in their retreat and come out in the Spring
to begin their ravages upon the fields. Tufts of
wheat pulled up in many widely-separated places
reveal the same condition of affairs. The rains and
mild weather that followed the recent prolonged
drought have brought Fall wheet forward very ra-
pidly. Most fields shows a growth of about 3 inches.
The recent warm weather has produced here a se-
cond crop of new potatoes, with bloc.iaing violets
and budding lilacs, and the frequent blossoming
of honey-suckles, cherries and plums.
To BOIL ONIONs.-Some years ago I read in an
English journal a contribution of Mr. Frank Buck-
land, where he stated that after mental fatigue and
occasional sleeplessness he was greatly benefitted
by eating onions at his dinner. How soporific or
sleep-inducing the onion, the much despised vege-
table, is, I am not prepared to state, but I know
that many persons who are troubled with sleepless-
ness use them. If properly boiled, so as to, get the
twang out of them, the, onion is a most delicate
vegetable. ,To every quart of onions a quart of
cold water, with a half tablespponful of salt. Boil
not too fast for two hours. Drain in colander
thoroughly and allow to get cold. Make a sauce
with a tablespoonful of butter, the same of flour,
and one half pint of milk ; rub butter and flour
perfectly together, with pinch of black pepper.
Boil milk, which pour over flour and butter, and
stir all the time to keep smooth. Put onions in
sauce and let them heat until the same boils.
Ought to be served rather dry.-Doctor's Wife.
