THE BERMUDAS.
ATTRACTION OF THE ISLANDS AS A HEALTH
RESORT-A LAND WHERE ABSOLUTE REST IS
OBTAINABLE-PECULIAR CHARACTERISTICS
OF THE LITTLE COLONY.
I.
Dlice est desailere in loco -Hir 01 IV. 12.
Notwithstanding the law of evolu-
tion, by which the human race ha;
gradually but steadily been attaining
to a liighrr plane of being as indivi-
duals we still occasionally return to
primitive conditions of existence.
Thus it is that civilized man imitates
the swallow, and when winter with all
its discomforts menaces him in his
northern home he turns his neb"
to the south. This has now become,
not only necessity for the delicate
invalid, but also a necessary luxury
for the hale and hearty who can afford
thus to shun king frost. In a short
time, all through Canada, and no-
where more than in M.:iitoba, the
earnest enquiry will arise in thousands
of homes, "Where shall we go?"
There are many questions of vital im-
portance which seem to be answered
by chance and many more which we
Would be most pleased to leave to
another to answer, and this is one.
The claims of different climes as to
beauty, climate, health and comfort
are set forth at large by enterprising
hotel-4 -!. railway managers, etc.,
but as each and all of these pictures
are colored by the interests of those
issuing the so-called descriptions,
more or less distrust is felt by all
readers. That this feeling o' distrust
is well grounded is unquestionable,
and those who have accepted the rosy
pictures and tried the balmy climes
with redolent orange groves and sun-
sets of surpassing beauty and waters
of cerulean blue, &c., &c., have oftines
returned more than d sgusted with the
deception practi, ed. Instead of the
balmy climes they have found alter-
nating tornadoes and torrid calms;
instead of orange blossoms they have
found scarce a shrub ; and the sky
blue waters have resolved themselves
into muddy lakes or filthy harbors.
Then when the sincerity of word
painting has been doubted, art has
been invoked to throw a man le of
seeming truth over the scene. In
this way the writer has had views"
of countries, with which he was as
intimate as with the street on which
lie lives, presented to him as taken
on the spot, and therefore unquestion-
ably veracious representations when
in reality no such combination of
beauties could be found in the origi-
nal. This is lone very easily. In
few countries or places are not to be
found isolated spots of greater or less
beauty, and the ingenious hireling of
a Ri R. Co', or a hotel man makes
separate sketches or photographic
views of these, and then pieces them
together so as to make a gorgeous
whole.
Another source of uncertainty to
the intending traveller is the discre-
pancy which exists among the viva
voce reports of those who have re-
turned after spending a longer or
shorter sojourn in the land in ques-
tion. The extremes of difference are
pot so puzzling, for the Horatian
1rixi .1 ibis twuissimnus medio" is
true here as in almost everything else,
and the intending tourist can easily
strike an average for himself between
the El Dorado sort of description on
the one hand aend the Sahara-like de-
lineation on the other. Between
these extremes, however, are so many
on. either side the middle line, which
flatly contradict each other in some
particulars and agree in others that
the patient analyst is cormpelled to
give up his task, seeing the impossi-
bility of reconciling the accounts given
by enforced resident dyspeptics, men
with liver or lungs, mammas, with
marriageable daughters, or pretty
widows who have angled successfully
among the "jeunessee dore" who fre-
quent the springs baths, lake or sea-
shore hotel balconies, &c. To the aid
of such puzzled people I come; and
first, let me assure all my good read-
ers with a George Washington hones-


ty that I have not a pennyworth of
interest in the place I am about to
describe, and only that kind of inter-
eat in tie people WVh W any man m IAua


have towards those who have treated,
him always itli the rarest l!osiitalit y
and kindness. Few places are leftt in
this work-a-dayp world where the
stranger, if respectable, is treated as
he is in Barmnad, or where more ge-
nuine, hearty friends are to be made-
aye, an"I kept, too, in the long by and
bye. I may never again set foot on
her lovely shores, nor indulge in a
hand-clasp with the im ny who bade
mo God speed when I left the land,,
but I here wish most emphatically to
record my appreciation of an unvary-
ing kindness and frendliness which I
fear me will never fall to my lot
again.
The visit of Her Royal Highness
Princess Louise during the past win-
ter has probably done more to attract
attention to and establish the reputa-
tion of these fairy islands than any
amount of mere journalism could do.
It is not very 1 ng ago that a large
percentage of ordinarily well-educa-
ted men were not aware of the geo-
graphical position of the Bermudas.
Many might know them as a group
of West Indian Islands (which they
are not,,) but whereabouts in the At-
lantic was only known to the haidy
mariners who trade in these latitudes,
and to few besides. Many good sto-
ries are to d of sailors bvlinig unable
to find the islands and having return-
ed to their ports declaring that they
had sunk, and that they had sailed
over them. These tales relate to the
days of (dead reckoning, before chro-
nomneters, were used in navigation ;
but,it not infrequently happens now for
vessels, steamers and others, to pass
the islands and havo to return alid
search for th iln Tli-vre a collmpa-
ratively low lying coral group, lying
about 700 miles S. S.E. of New York,
(lat. 32-14, 45-3; ,long. 64-49, 55-5,
WV) The miainlands are surrounded
by a reef of coral rocks which lie at
some distance from shore on the
northern side, but are much closer in -
shore on the south side of the islands.
To got inside this cha med circle it is
necessary to get a native pilot, of
whon there are always a nDumber on
the out-look. These men are remark-
ably skilful navigators, and know the
intricate channels leading to the vari-,
outs anchorages, much as a city guide
knows the streets and squares of the
scene of his labors.
What reasons are to Ie given for
preference especially to Canadians
who wish to know where to go,?"
First as a matter of sentiment,, Ber-
muda is a British C'o ony. There
floats the Union J',ck, and once in
a way the Royal Standard fla'.-i
from the Government Buildings. The
people among whom you go are iden-
tical in their form of Government and
their attachment to the Old Country.
They are particularly partial to Catn-
adians with whose country there has
been exchange of one kind and an-
other, as recorded in Canadian his-
tory, since the establishment of the
American ] independence. Other things
being equal, then Bermuda certainly
ought to offer more attraction to the
Canadi n than a resort in. an alien
country. Apart from sentiment what
inducements are offered? There is
the short sea voyage, only 72 hours
from port to port. Long enough to
;give one the benefit of a sea-voyage,
but short enough to prevent any suf-
ferings Irom Mal de Mer. Of course
we do not mean to say there is no
sea-sickness.. Only the elect escape
that, but what we mean is that the
voyage is not long enough to produce
the grave hardships attendant oa pro-
longed sea-sickness, and who knows
what a factor in. health restoring is
the slightest touch of the dreaded
evil.
THE ROUTE.
A very fine steamer, '" The Orinoco,"
runs between New York and th_ islands,
making fortnightly trips, leaving each
port on alternate Fridays, (no sailor-like
superstition here you see). During the
winter season another steamer is rune
which thus makes the communication
weekly. liesides this there is a regular
Ounard steamer,. the 1Beta," from Ha-
lifax every month. This steamer runs
to Jamaica, and only touches at I ermur
da for a few hours on its way to and fro,


discharging and receiving mails, cargo
and passengers. The people of M-tmiit-
ba have thus their choice, either take
the trip via Chicago to- New York or, if
. ; ooo0gh in the water. tha ernte to


Halifax. Either of these starting points
will answer. The date, we'll say, is
(-I'ii-t t,.s week. We are on board the
"Orinoco," or the "Beta." The deck is
slippery with ice, the shrouds are fes-
tooned with icicles, we and our fellow
passed iers are "wwrapt and coated well,
and yet we still are cold." Probably a
snow storm is in progress, which dark-
ens the air and r-nders the nmnrkiness
of a winter's afternoon- vet more intense.

We are a jolly partN, .you hear the mer-

merry as a marriage-bell. It is well, for
the next meal shows vacant seats and
for the present the b ight eyes and the
merry voices are but memories. We
will not follow them into the dark re-
cesses of their staterooms, conscious
that the best meaning aid, at such a
time, is a pure burden and vexation of
spirit. And here let me digress for an
instant to make a remark on seasickness.
I am afraid that, so far, there is but
little help for the dreaded ailment, but
let ime say that, as the devil is not so
blaek as painted, so sea sickness is not
in most cases all1 it is -:.'i-i to be. So
long has it been vaunted as the most
awful, most dreadful, most terrible ex-
perience, that now-a-days it would not
be considered the thing for any one to
underrite its horrors. There is little
syimpathv shown to suu' ei's (unless se-
riously ill), and, if one makes light of,
his experience, why then, he is simply
put down as one who did not have a
fair share of the malady. Th.-ro are two
methods 9f treating the disease, the ex-
poetant aid the active. By the former
the phyisician exercises w at is known
aa-a mast-iyv inactivity; by the latter,
hie ransacks matyhai, the whole phar-,
taacopeil fo' remedial agents. .'oim,.-
. times tihe onl course is best, sometimes
tdle other. Qf late many drugs have
been vaunt'edas specifics in seasickness,
but with qne ionable truth. Chloral,
nitrite of aiyvI and the bromides are
among the forenost. A tight belt, with
a compress ovei the stomach and the
supine !r-t,;tii has also been recom-
mended, whilebra dy, c',.',; '.'ne, etc.,
etc., have had \ch rus of supporters as
long as they \av. been in existence.
Now listen to tp voice of experience.
Best "throw iit,ic to the dogs" or fish-
es, but if an iiwmord hankering exists af-
,ter some remely, probably tile bromide
of sodium has te best record. Keep
on your back, ri necessarily in; your
bunk, but un ar of the couches a well
ordered ship pllid s. Use the belt
and the pad ovor the stomach-they
have really been pund useful, support-

the passengers, etc., don't let the-offr-
cers disturb you. Keep them out of
your r1 om and lie still, taking a little
salt gruel for iouiriihmeit, and iii twen-

HAMILTON, NOVEMBER 7,18F3.

Editorial Bureau.
HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.

The present House of Assembly
has during its first session charac-
terized itself by liberally voting away
the Public's money for various purpo-
ses necessary and unnecessary, includ-
ing officials salaries, &c. But in so do-
ing it. Would appear as if the members
li d, perli pl inadvertently, overlook-
ed one of the oldest and most deserv-
ing of the Public officials, and one
closely connected with themselves,-
namely Mr. William Darrell, clerk of
'the Assembly, whose yearly salary is
,only 170, an inadequate amount
proportionate to his vast responsibility
and the laborious duties he has to
perform during each session. Mr.
Darrell was appointed Clerk to the
then existing Assembly in 1840, and
ever since, during the long period of
about 44 years he has continuously
served in the same capacity. He has
outlived nearly all his colleagues of
40 years ago, has seen many changes
by death and otherwise in governor-
ship, in the two Houses of Legisla-
ture, government officials etc ; and
yet he is still at his post of duty, ever
ready and willingto' perform his part
in the affairs, of the Legislature and
*Government. But age and infirmity
are now creeping upon him, and years
hence, if spared, he will.thereby be
necessitated to retire from his official
capacity, in which through a more than
ordinary period of time he has faith-
fully, arduously and most satisfactoril-
ly performed the responsible duties of
*office. Kind and genial in soul and
courteously obliging in manner he
has won for himself universal respect,
and an honorable and justly merited
reputation. An official of so long and
continuous standing is worthy of a
much higher salary for his services,
more especially as he is recognized
as an Authority on Parliamentary
Law and practise; in fact, we are
much surprised that his salary was
not largely augmented many years
ago. Had nature constituted him a
British Foreigner instead of a native
Bermudian it would have been in-
creased, perchance, a half dozen of
times, as the Legiilature is kinder to,
imported officials than its own people.
But it is not too late yet to do what
has been left undone; therefore be-
fore the present House, closes its
doors it is to be hoped that the Mem-
bers will generously ,grant an extra
allowance to the salary of their faith-
ful Clerk :--or prehaps, what would
be more suitable at his time of life, to
substitute his salary by an "annual
life income," and thus allow their
faithful official to retire from his du-
ties to spend his remaining years in
the calmh evening sunshine of a long,
laborious and honorable life.
*
POLITICAL ECONOMY.

During the debate on the "Pro-
duce Inspection Bill" Mr. C. Peniston,
moved a new clause, providing for the
publication of the Act in all the
newspapers of the Islands.
Mr. Dill thought that the Royal
Gazette and one other paper would be
sufficient.
Mr. Fraser thought there was an
unfairness in discriminating in this
way, some take one paper, and some
another, therefore he thought it should
be published in all of the four papers
in the Islands.
Mr. Dill in reply, said there was no
one Tnore fond of finding fault with
tlhe public expenditure than ,the ho-
norable member iMr. Fraser) himself,
and here he was trying to provide for
unnecessary expenditure. If this Act
was published in the Gazette and
the Colonist at St. Georges that would
be all that.was wanted.
Dr. Outerbrid e thought the Bill
was an important one, because three
fourths of the people of the colony
depend.upon agriculture for a living
Suppose there .were twenty papers
printed here would the Hoase author-
ize tie. Act ,to be., printed in every
one of: them? If-the Act was adver-


tised& in the Royal Gazette and one
other paper that would be sufficient.
Mr. -Peniston through the influence.
of this' sweeping logic was induced to
withdraw the motion.'
Thli'above will be recognized by
every intelligent reader as the flimsi-
est and most absurd spider-web argu-
ment eve; spun by any man who pre-
sumes to be an honest and "honor-
able" member of a Representative
Assembly.
Mr. Dill. clothes himself witthhe
presumptive authority to discriminate
betwixt the. four newspapers published
in Bermnuda, individually .assuming
miagistratic power to deal with and
decide the question by boldly assert-
ing that to publish the Produce In-
sl,-'tiou 't' irthe Gazette and -Col-
oaist, 'hich -are already luxuriantly
?* .If ; A:. .


fattening on State pay, "was 'all that
was wanted" thus leaving the other
two to "pot luck," Lazarus-like to
gather the morsels which may happen
to fall in their way : bMltibe it under-
stood according to this theory as a
masterly stroke in defense of Politi-
cal Economy.
Out of the 6 or 7 hundred sub-
scribers of the New Era and the
People's Journal, augmented by at
least 400 additional readers, perchance
not one third take or read the Gazette
and the Colonist, thus leaving at the
least 5 or 6 hundred unprovided for: ;
and who if they should ever see the
Act would be by mere chance. There-
fore we would ask every honorable.
member in the House if this would
be doing justice to the people in ge-
neral, as all would be identified in
some way or other with the Act. And
yet in the face of these facts the
member for Devonshire arrogantly
tells his colleagues in the House, and
the general public, including the read-
ers o-f the New Era and Journal, that
having the Act published in the
Gazette and Colonist "is sufficient."
This be it remembered, is Political
Economy. But- the most absurdly
ridiculous feature of this policy is that
of accusing the liberal member for
Southampton, of trying to saddle ad-
ditional expenditure upon the country
by extending the publishing 1 of im-
portant public Acts to the other two
papers. A couple or three pounds
would have been sufficient to cover
the extra cost. We care not for the
paltry sum that might have fallen to
our lot; but 'tis the principle of equal
justice that has been grossly violated
in the attempt to ignore two liberal
and independent Journals, one of them
thie "organ" of the Colored Popula-
lation in Bermuda, by sorting them as
outside culls, when they are as much
the representive organs of the public as
the chosen sheets," and as much
entitled to a just and equal privilege.
Thus the member for Devonshire who
is noted for his fancied self sufficiency,
and who has so far during the Session
assisted his colleagues in voting away
vast sums of the public money,! a
great portion for either unnecessary
Qr unserviceable purposes, as for 9n-
stance the sum of over $700, for tub-
bing off the rust and varnishing a pair
of old public portraits scarcely worthy
of being recognized,-at length makes
a bold and defiant stroke tp establish
a reputation for Political Economy."
Instead of attempting to slight or
ignore the Public Press, universally
lkniowledg--._ as the greatest organ in
the civilized world for the enhance-
ment of general intelligence and public
good, it should rather be encouraged
and aided, especially by men who are
placed in power to advance the inter-
est of the public at large.,
As to Dr. Outerbridge's remark a-
bout twenty papers it is too ridicu-
lous to be recognized, as Mr. Penis-
ton's motion embraced only the four
papers published in the Islands,-
not twenty-an imaginary figure. We
are surprised at such expressions
coming from so intelligent, and
liberal a member, generally; but not
so much surprised after all, as the doc-
tor occasionally speaks by fits and
starts quaker-like, as the spirit
moves h li.
In the maturing of the Bill however,
it was rendered "hbrs de comabt" by
a majority of votes, thus eventually
placing all the four publishers on the
same equal level. Sic transit gloria.


Correspondence.

Fr the New Era.
HADEAN CAUSEWAY.
Mn. EDIrro,-"Churchman" in your
last issue failed again, and has shewn to
the public in his writings that he is an
"illiterate" member of "the presumed
illiterate congregation." When "Church-
man" read "Theological Development"
he seems to have thought it a mystery,
and is of an opinion that he has solved
it. I was not aware that there was any-
thing mysterious about it and am confi-
dent that any one with the smallest
amount of intellect when reading it
would see the same.


"Churchman" says that Churac Go-
er" and '" lHappy Thought" are cmsoli-
dated. He is wrong, as I have lot the
slightest idea who "Happy Thotght" is.
And in regards of being able t> com-
prehend the theory of f" Churaman's"
language,' I think it would pzzle the
greatest scholar of the day, a, I never-
saw the English language murdered in
such a way before, except ly such an-
other ignoramns.
"Churchman" remarks thai he 'is
fully satisfied to know that the 'illiterate
congregationn" of Somerset emphatically
understand the writings of hisiiscourse.'
So then, Mr. Editer, "Chim.'chun" made
a thorough canvass of the "presumed
illiterate congregation" and e'ry one of
them must have informed hii that they
understood his writings. Tls is doubt-
ful. Churchman" is determined' to
hold up before the public/his opinion
that the congregation of Je Somerset
Divine is illiterate. Mr. lTitor, did you
ever know any one to understand a dis-
course or a writing E HATICALIY? I
think if "Churchman" ,iad used the
word thoroughly or fully or properly,
he would have shewmn L. eIrain--,j,?.
Churchman" .:, t 1t h n l m ot
4 ;' .


but feel some surprise that "Church Go-
er" should have failed in so considerable
a degree in "lTheological Development."'
But he has not shewn wherein I failed,
and did not attempt to confute anything
that I put forth in "Theological De-
velopment"
The sentences from agreeable to his
request, etc." to the word cognomen"
(in Churchman's article) are impossible
for anyone to understand, (as a number
have remarked) and, Mr. Editor, did
you ever see such a jumble of words
put before the public before, as part of
a defence of a ,previous criticism ? In
the first sentence 'hurchman" men-
tions James' ferry which (according to
his statement) has only one edge to it,
and therefore the other part must be a
boundless expanse of water. On the
said edge "Churchman" says that a
bridge is. builliii, on the new theology
(or bridge) advanced," Now, Mr. Edit-
or, who ever heard of a ferry having
only one edge and a bridge being built
on it. I have always thought that a fer-
ry had two edges and on i being spanned
by a bridge it crossed both edges. The
other sentence is a mNyster'y.
"Churchman" s.vi 'that he has 'brief-
ly illuhtiated tlihe' mystery on the ." Ia-
dean Causeway"'. s ; by making it
more mysterious. Mr. Editor, can you
inform me iii what part of Church-
man's" article is the -said illustration?
as I have failed to see. it, and am certain
that the Somerset 'Divine and the ma-
jority of the "presumed illiterate con-
gregation" (in whose defence "Church-
man" has been writing) have also failed
if they have read the article.
Churchman" makes reference to
"Another Church Goer." I did not
take any notice of him as he is simply
an amanuensis who is in the habit of
practicing medicine, and who was "not at
church on the night that the bridge
theory was advanced.
In conclusion, "Churchman" has not
contradicted the bridge theory advanced
by the Somerset Divine, and therefore
must stand affirmed by him. "Church
Goer" bids adieu to "Churchman" and
while he travels on the" proper road to
the city," I will take to the by-paths and
enjoy myself dodging hyenas" and
"running a blockade of robbers," re-
membering that the Hadean Causeway"
still remains a mystery; but hopini'r
that it will not become a doctrine of
" The Church." -


CHURCH GOER.
'- -
For the New Era.
MR. EDITOR,-It would be an obtuse
mind that c",uld fail to perceive the ani-
mus felt by D" towards the Bible, al-
though he has, flAuidered about' at a
painful rate to hide it. He had no in-
tention of impugning the truth of the
Bible, so far as it is the resml. of Divine
inspiration,'" lHft he says., the.Bible
account is positive-a total delu.me";
and then he goes on to prove that this
claim is absurd. In the last paragraph
of his article, he iells us that "we mray
accept with coi)nfidenl'e the Bible ac-
count of the Deluge, not universal how-
ever," etc ; and at its close he, speaks of
"the lapse of ntes, and the handing
down of the account by oral tradition,
naturally exaggerating it to its-in the
-Bible-fabulous dimensions." I can
only conclude from all this, that he refu-
ses to allow the "inspiration" of the Bi-
ble account of this event, or of the ap-.
proval placed up.c* that account by the
, Lord" Jesus Christ and his apostles.
Thus, through your columns he assails
the inspiration of the Bible, and, then
tells us that the question of its inspira-
tion cannott be profitably discussed in
a newspaper"!!
It seems very evident that the Bible
and cognate studies, have not received
the careful attention at the hands of
"D" that he has given to this exhumed
egg. I could not repress a smile at his
dread lest the doctrine of Miracles should
be introduced into the discussion. With
another of those sublimely dignified
waives of his hand, he has relegated the
whole batch of miracles to--nowhere ;
but the sentence referred to, proves that
he either does not know what a miracle
is, or else that he has failed- to convey a
correct idea of his meaning. He will
not '* argue any pI"'nui iert- a miracle has
to be provided (the italics are mine) to ov-
errule the laws of nature." I was not
aware that it was claimed, by the most
rigidly orthodox" that a miracle is any
, violation of the univ-eral laws of God in
any realm of His. 'This notion of care-
less thinkers; that miracles contradict or
override' the laws of nature, and are
therefore impossible,7 is all too common.
Those who who have it should study
more closely along this line. To define,
a miracle in this way and the-n to assail
it because it is such, is to set up a man
of straw for the fun of kikbcking it down.
I have no intention of dis,:us-ing mi-
racles" here. But I do complain of this
" lipshod" method of dealing with mat-
ters, which although confessedly so mo-
mentous in their bearings, have never
received any adequate study from those
who assail them. The general question
of the relation of the Bible to the well-
being of the world, in its every phase
and interest, is one of transcendent mo-
ment. All that society is to-day, that is
useful and true, peaceful and pure, it
owes to the Bible, received and revered
as the TVord of God ;* and whoever weak-
ens the faith of manidnd in this Book as
a DI)iine inspiration, not only imperils
man's eternal peace, but is guilty of high
treason against human society.
"IY" does not believe in an universal
deluge. Neither do I. "D" claims that
Sthe Bible teaches that the Deluge was
universal. I affirm the Bible teaches
no such thing. D"-in this matter-,
haslabored hard to erect a niii of straw, ,


to knock it over at once. He says,
"Fact feels the weakness of his position,"
and cites my admission that the' Flood
did not cover the Rocky Mountains, as
a proof, of a hart failing for fear. Not
so fast, friendI Never was a purpose
more fully reached than mine has been
in this matter, as regards the position
which D" has taken. He has walked
into the very corner I wished for. What-
ever the Bible, as interpreted by him,
may show, is not my point. 1 claim that
as interpreted by itself, it does not utter
one word to prove that the Flood was
universal as we understand that term,
and this I expect to prove in your next
issue, Mr. Editor, if you will grant me
a short space, To trespass further, at
this late time of your week, would be
indiscreet. FACT.

STEAMS tHIS AND SUBSIDIES.

Mn. EmDITOR,-I often wonder what
this little colony of ours is coming to.
At present the output is considerably
more than its income, and foreigners are
continually calling upon us for ALMS. I
suppose that ere long a heavy tariff will
be placed on our, bread--tuff'. ('t-'in-g
more misery to the country. I under-
stand that the "Union Steam Drain" is
likely to ,be subsidized for opening two
markets. I cannot see how this will be-
nefit the farmers. The English market
is somewhat doubtful and critical. It
might take a few vegetables at moderate
prices, but it would be difficult to estab-
lish a.trade that would be large enough
to benefit the Bermudian planters. With
regard to the sending onions West by
this line, I do not consider that this is
opening a new market ; it is merely a
different road in shipping them, thus,
shipping them West ourselves instead
of allowing the New Yorkers to ship
them for us ; but it will not be the
means of taking more onions from us
than usual. Now I ask, what material
benefit will this country derive from the
Union Line ? It is really to be deplored
that we have not more unity among our
people in general, especially those whom
we term public men ; were the feelings
and sentiments in unison we would not
have so many foreign ships offering their
service&. I have just seen a copy of a
Petition, in the hands of a gentleman
who intends also to ask a subsidy from
the House of Assembly for a Hamburg
Line of steamers, running between Mex-
ico and Canada, and intending to make
Bermuda a calling port. It is thought.
by many that this Line of steamers
would do more good for this country
than any other Line, providing the Ca-
nadian Govermnent withdraws the hea-
vy duties on our vegetable produce.
which would be, r-adily done if applied
for. The country is in a weak condition
at present. Any step that will benefit
the farming interest, I say, "go for it,"
and further I would say that we should
weigh this matter well ; and grant no
subsidy unless Bermuda is likely to be
benefitted by the new trade to be open-
ed up, to, at least, the amount asked as
a subsidy.

Mn. EDITOR.-A play upon names in an

the authorship of said communications.

8__ During the debate on the Buri-.
al Question, last 3M.mdiy, S. C. Outer-
bridge, in opposing the Bill, .amidst a
flourish of rhetoric, exclaimed, What
are the Episcopal Churches of Bermuda
built upon ?'-to which he emphatically
replied, "They are built upon the
Graveyards ; yes, gentlemen, the Epis-
copal Churches of Bermuda are built
upon the Graveyards"-as much as to
signify that though
rThe Roman Catholics built their church
Upon St. Peter's stones,
The Episcopalions here build theirs
On only dead men's bones ;
While very other outside church
Of sect-denomination
Is either built upon the sand,
Or is without foundation.
gi The Burial Bill Petition was
brought before the House on Monday
and after considerable discussion for
and against in Committee it was
ultimately thrown out by a majority of
14 votes. It is whispered however
thtt another Petition signed by mem-
bers of five denominations of these,
islands will be presented to the
EXECUTIVE, praying that the Burial
Question may form a recommendation
in his speech at the closing of the pre-
sent session, or the commencement of
a new one, and that in the event of a
f ilnre of such a recoinmen nation, the
s;mune parties will memorial the Queen

Unintentionally) committed .an error,

iher wrongly given or misund ,rstood.
We have since been informed that the
person implicated is a man of color,
named Edward Outerbridge, whom
Capt. Thos. L. Outerbridge keeper of
'the bri'lg --hal hired to stop at the
bridge during his temporary absence
t iat evening, on business of great im-
portanc,. The party from whom we
received this latter information, says,
C4ptain Thos. L. Outerbridge on no
occasion has been implicated in any row
with the military or any one else ; his
intercourse with all, through the nature
of hii employment, being most agree-
able."
gar The "Himalya" arrived and
ai:rchored in Grassy B3ay on Wedn,.i-
day morning of last week. It was
publicly announced that at 3 p.m.
the troops would land at Hamilton,
and at that hour numbers of peo-
ple lined the wharves, the numbers
increasing as the afternoon wore on.
But it was not until about sundown
that t':e naval craft from the Dock-
yard, hove in sight, the scarlet line


on board being scarcely visible when
she reached the middle of the harbor
opposite the Corporation wharf. In-
stead of steaming around, arid cau-
tiously coming up close to the land-
ding place a hawser from bow and
stern was .brought into connection
with the wharf and by this means with
the aid of steam and muscle she w'as
drawn broadside to the pier; which
occupied over an hour., Another half
hour elapsed before the gangway
could be adjusted in proper shape-
then out came the pioneers in the form
of women and children, followed by
the Baritd and the soldiers. Carts
were in'readiness to take the women,
children and loose baggage to thb
Camp at Prospect; but there was a
difficulty experienced by the poor
women atid children in knowing,
whither to direct their course, encom-
passed by immense crowds of specta-
tors and. military men, and some who
piteously asked for the -way were
gruffly told to go a-head. Conspicu-
ous .was the absence of light either
on the vessel or the wharf, and the
night was dark, and not a ray of light
was to be seen to guide the traveler's
way, but that of the town lamps op-
posite the shore. At length every-
thing was adjusted, and the soldiers in
fyle. marched off en route for Pros-
1iect. heladed by the Band of the Roy-
al Irish Rifles.

of the newly arrived York and Lan-
casters were unlading luggage from a
barge at the wharf one of them was
suddenly precipitated into the water,
and having touched bottom ascended
in a few seconds, to the surface, and
.like a drowned rat was soon hauled
into the boat, apparently nothing the
worse by a good wetting. Roars of
laughter and humorous jokes from
his comrades showed that they enjoy-
ed thi ihini-.-rsio-i dip immensely. The
letters Y and L on his shoulder blades
led our Wag who chanced to be pres-
ent to believe that it was a Yacht-
Launch,'and that the young soldier on
seeing the word "Sey-mour" on the
b1mr, iup lying along side had attemnilt-
ed :to make a bold stroke into the SEA
on purpose to SEE MORE than he had
yet seen in Bermuda.


ceived advices from America of threat-
ened explosions like those which occur-
red, and precautions were taken to pro-
vide against them. The explosives used
were powerful, but were in a limited
qli mit... The 1h. -,i mle in the ground
and in the brickwork were small.
Investigations made by scientific.ad-
visers to the War Department have led
to the conclusion that nitro-'.; l -.rihie in
some form was the agent used in both
cases. Later inquiries confirm the early
statement that a large number of peo-
ple were injured. In addition to over
thirty treated in the hospital a large
number were attended by private sur-
geons. One of the victims, a corporal of
hussars, says he was talking with a
friend on the train, near Praed street,
when there was suddenly a very bright
flash, immediately followed by a terrible
report. Ile was struck by +.in,.tl iiio
and almost knocked insensible. When.
the train arrived at Edgevare road he
staggered across the platform and was
picked up by a s.,l.liev. lie remembers
:,nothing more. This is ou! one of
many similar narratives.
