Yes, God has made me a woman
And I am content to be
Just what he meant, not r-a.hi~i out
For otl:ir things, since He
Who knows me best and loves me most has
ordered this for me.

"A woman, to live my life out
In quiet, womanly ways,
Hearing the far-off battle,
Seeing as through a haze
The crowding, s.I rugiling world of men
through their busy days. *


"I am not strong or valiant,
I would not joln the fight,
Or jostle with crowds in the highways
To sully my garments white ;
But I have rights as a woman, and here I
claim my right.
The right of a rose to bloom
In its own sweet separate way,
With none to question the perfumed pink
And none to utter a nay,
If it reaches a root or points a thorn, as even
a rose-tree may.
The right of the lady-birch to grow,
To grow as the Lord shall ple-.w,,
By never a sturdy oak rebuked,
Denied nor sun nor breeze,
For all its pliant slenderness, kin to the
Ktiroaim r trees.
The right to a life of my own-
Not merely a casual bit
Of 4-,. ., ,dy else's life, flung out
That, taking hold of it,
1 may stand as a cipher does, after a numer-
al wiit.
"The right ito *; IT:hir 1.1i glei i

From the gp, ii, d store of knowledge
Which man has heaped for mau ;
Taking With free hands freely and after an
ordered plan.
The right! ah, best anid sweetest!

To stand all undismayed,
Whenever sorrow or want or sin
Call for a woman's aid ;.

The fleet foot and the feeble foot
'Both seek the self-same goal,
The weakest soldier's name is writ

And God who made man's body strong, made

A' Providential Escape.
In the summer and autumn of 1868 I
was the operator in' charge of the Over-
land Te.legr. iph company's office at Plum
Creek station, Neb., ab ut fifty miles
west of Fort Kearney.
Before I took charge at Plum Creek a
company of soldiers had been stationed
there to keep the unfrienlly Indians in
subjection, and to subdue any outbreak
on the part of those who prtefeni.: i to be
on good terms with the government.
But affairs on the plains being quiet, the
presence of the troops was considered
no longer necessary, and they were or-
dered into Omaha.
Every one else out there being so con-
fident that no danger threatened them, I
went to work without any apprehension
myself of coming troubles. The com-
pany furnished me with a good horse,
two navy revolvers and a carbine, and
my qua.irtei's were in an adibe building.,
called in the parlance of the plains a
dobey." The walls were built of sod,
and the roof was constructed of strong
cotton-wood logs in place of rafters, and
covered with the same material that the
walls were composed of. In summer
time grass and flowers grew up on the
sides and top of the dobey," and made
it a very plenstiit place of abode.
My communication with people of the
world was rather limited, the only per-
sons I ever saw being travellers in the
,overland stage, movers in ox-wa'piis
bound for the Pacific slope, and an occa-
sional visit from a ranchman of the
For a while the novelty of being al-
most alone and free from the restraints
that civilized life .impose upon,us was
very pleas:iu', but when I became ac-
customed to this the silence of the desert

during the day-tiile, was almost over-
powering, and tliher' were times when I
almost sighed for a. si-ht at even a hos-
tile Indian. Sitting in my little office
some days, everything was so hushed
and still I co.nld alii.,st imagine that
everybody else ian the wrl, was dead,
and that I had leef- ki t Lbfthind asa sen-
tinel guarding tht-ir t.inlmbs. At night
the scene from my office window was
weird and ghost-like, but the ravenous
cayotes broke the stillness that reigned
throughout the night by snapping and
snarling at each other until the morning
For sake of la -ing off the time I got
to firing at the creatures with my car-
bine and revolvers, and it was astonish-
ing to note how quick they would devour
one when he fell pierced by a bullet.
Some nights I would kill four or five,
and in the morning when I went out to
see what remained of their carcasses,
not a bone would be found left behind.
In time I discovered that they would
tear the flesh from the bones and then
carry them to their lairs to pick on dur-
ing the day- I killed buffalo, antelopes
and jack rabbits until I wearied of even
that kind of sport; and so glad was I to
see anything human, the ugliest and
most ignorant man on the globe would
have been an honored and welcome
guest. After remaining a month in that
vast solitude, I resolved to throw up my
position-although it was a lucrative one
--and go where I could have the com-
pany of at least one human being ; but
an incident occurred just at that time
which caused me to alter my determin-
Sitting one day in the door of my
"dobey," peeling some potatoes for din-
ner, I was startled by the appearance of
a shadow but a little distance from me.
Glancing up suddenly, "Lo! the poor
Indian," was -,toalin_-. a few feet from
the door with lordly mien and an air
'hici-h l-n',.tel a.n intent tion tq p .sse-~ -
himself of my s.rallp. Not desiiint., how-
ever, to part with it, I sprang from, my
seat and had him covered with my car-
bine before he had time to "get the
drop" on me.
Pale face no shoot. Heap good
friend," said he. Me good Injun, and
do heap work for pale faces. C'ooky and
wash good. Pawnee brave-ugh !"
At first I was under the impression
that there was more than one present ;
but when I discovered my mistake, I put
down my carbine and felt no further
He told me he had been captured by
the Sioux from the Pawnee tribe, but
had escaped from his captors, and if I
would let him stay he w..,-iul woik for
me, and be "heap clever Injun."
1 hailed his coming with delight; in
the first place because I wanted some
kind of a companion, and in the second
place because I was fohd of ftn'lyind the
Indian character, and here was a splen-
did opportunity of giraif inug the whim.
I made him wash himself thoroughly
and put on a suit of my own clothes,
and found when he was decently ri,.ze1
out, SANS war paint, feathers and other
gewga& s, that he was a tolerably fair
specimen of the GENUS HOMo.
He had a long Indian name I could
not spell or pronouiinc, so I proposed to
him to ,chan:.e it to Joe." This suited
him greatly, and all during the day
while he was washing the pots and doing
the "house work" generally, I could
hear him saying to himself, "Pale faced
chief call me Joe, Joe, Joe. Pale face
heap clever and good to .Joi. !"
I mistrusted him at first, fearing that
he would rutn off wvitb i m horse and fire-
arms, but in time I learned to trust him
implicitly, and became very fond of him.
The s_.quel to my story will prove how
worthy he was of my c. .fid,:in-e.
Ah, what a royal time we had together
chasing the aittelohpe and the buffalo.
My interest revived in this sport after
the protracted silence was broken, and
some days we would wander many miles
out on the plains. Joe was fleet of foot,
,id1 could walk all day long without the
least sign of fatigue. Occasionally I
would take' him up behind me; but he
.:,t-'._'r.lly intidted upon wal-in.,. and I
let him have his way. H-i,= was particular-
ly solicitous ;abut my comfort and con-
venience, and every day I w.., ,-lliidt.!i
with'the deutl.ipiiient of new plii-.. in
his character. He had a noble mind,
and as as sympathetic and soft hearted
as a child. He had, too, an air of chi-
valry and courtsey about him which was l' 1 eng':,-iu.', and needed noti-
ing but the opportunity to make himself
a real c.urii-ir. I tried to induce him
to eat with me, but he could not be pre-
vailed upon to do so, always standing by
me with a deferential air, iani iti, dinr:p all
my wants. I was gi.atly astonished at
his general decorum, and i'ften wonr-

ed where he acquired his gentle and
often dignified manners--never having
noticed such characteristics in any other
Indian. All the reward he asked for his
faithful services was kind treatment and
assurances from me thatI I:qp;reciL:ted
ale caae .one .lt-. tio ,',ire I ws
cleaning my, tho p(:-_fcet per-__ul- -
ficati,,n of commiseration and grief. I
observed that he was deeply disturbed,
but waited for him to speak.
Finally he said : '"' Pawnee soon get on
war-path big. Mixing their paint now.
Pale faced chief have to leave 'fore long,
or Pawnees take scalp of pale faced
chief. Joe can't save pale face if he stay,
but will tell him when to leave."
After that I frequently heard him mut-
tering to himself. I heard him say one
"Pawnees heap kill pale faces when
get war paint on. Shan't kill pale faced
chief, for Joe will save him. Joe will
never see pale faced chief after he runs
away from Pawnee braves. Poor Joe,
poor Joe!"
Then he would weep bitterly, seeming
to suffer the most poignant sorrow.
A week or ten days after his first
warning he came to me and said : "Pale
faced chief must close his wig-warn and
go where the pale faces are thick as the
leaves on the trees" (meaning Fort Kear-
ney, where a large number of soldiers
were stationed.)
The Pawnee braves have got on war
paint and their plumes, and many ranch-
men and stage men. be sent to happy
hunting grounds. Pale faced chief has
been Joe's brother. When he goes away
Joe will go too, for Joe has told the
Great Spirit he will never take any more
scalps from the pale faced chief's bro-
thers. Pale chief must go away."
I asked for a relief, and a young man
about twenty years of age was sent from
down the road to take my place. I was
:.i: a co' waIr ljori le,'1iing to_ lave, but
I felt as strongly as I ever felt anything
in my life that I was fleeing from a place
where certain death awaited me if I re-
mained. I made preparations to leave
that night on the. same stage that
brought my relief.
A short time before dark Joe bundled
up his I11,. ,-It; a]id the little mementoes
I had given him. I had a beautiful lit-
tle ivory framed looking glass, and know-
inghow l' he had looked upon it
all the time he had been with me, I gave
it to him, together with a photograph of
myself. A miser never gazed upon his
hoard6d piles of gold more lovingly than
Joe did upon these simple gifts. With
tears streaming down his cheeks he said
good-bye, and struck out across the
sterile plains, bearing a burden of grief.
I watched his receding form di.:;pie:Lr
in the gathering gloom, and wn%,lred,
if, during that lonely Indian's sojourn
with me, I had succeeded in instilling
into his mind any new ideas bearing up-
on human life.
Ah, the savage has a soul as w,_Il as
the saint, and Joe, as he wandered on
and thought of what his white broth-
er" had told him during the time they
had occupied together that little isolat-
ed "di.1,- vy" on 'the plains, doubtless felt
his humble heart thrill with emotions he
had never before ex\priein::. Iboard-
ed the eastern stage that night, f.-tlin.-
confident that the next few days would
be big with tate.
I warned the ranchmen and stage-
station-keepers as we passed along f
their impending danr.:r, but my warn-
ings were treated as the nervous apl,.-,--
i, I-I.'nsi of a iwuin "not long from the
States." On the third night after my
dip:,'rture from PlIuti Creek I :-riv'-l1 at
Omaha at a late hour. The next morn-
ing I ;w 'kLe. got up, and hoisted the
window in my room at the Herndon
house, and looked out,on the er,.,t:
I heard a newsboy cry out "Here's

During the disastrous rt.reat of the
F 0re-ul1 :tuy the burning ot'Mo 4-
cow, the payimaister of the troops, fear-.
ing lest the army chest should be tak-
en, distributed its c.1Ltnt.ents amongst
-tit suoli'ervs of t.ll.e IiIt.ri'a1i Gu-lard,-
gi. ing to each the sum of 2.)(O0 fraine-s,
with the injunction to tike the money
safe back to France, as belonging to
the nation.
So faithfully was this trust observed,
that when the Guard reached Paris
only 4,000 francs remained unaccount-
ed for. It seems that when any of
the Guard was taken ill, or from any
circumstances was forced to be left
behind, he handed his trust to his
comrades, for them to take home with
their own.
Of the 4,000 francs missing, 2,000
were accounted for by the, drowning of
one of the men in crossing a deep and
rapid riv--. Of the other 2,000 noth-
ing was jard until about three years
afterwards, when a. wayfaring man,
ra.i:g.l and footsore from much walk-
ing, presented himself at the quarters
of one of the regiments of, Guards in
Paris, and announced himself as an
escaped prisoner from Russia. Ho
was arrested and taken before the
Emperor, and there told the story of
his capture, when forced one day,
through excessive fatigue, to fall be-
hind his regiment.
He had carefully con,-rcealed the 2,000
francs-which was probably in whole
or in part in paper-in some out-of-
the-way part of his dress, and through
all his trials had kept his treasure a
secret from the Russians., He had
been sent to Sibermi, from whenu-e he
had managed to e.-scape, and now pre-
.ent-:l1 himself b-foi.r. the Emperor-
man and money (quite safe.
The Emperor, on hearing the bravo
and faithful soldier's story, took the
officer's cross of the Legion of Honor
from his breast, and with his own
hands placed it on that of the soldier,
with wmurds of comfort and promises of
promotion, that were of the]tislves
sufficient reward for his faith(ulness
and brave endurance.


"Yes," s.Iid the affi:ectionate mo-
thor, "the first year Pf my daughter's

gallant coirnupanrion, "but you have a

"Cleanliness is next to Godliness"
-so -,lith one of the sentitientul sa-
ges. In this virtue. Beri-nulat has a
well-merited claim' to excel: for a'
neater, cleaner spot on earth is rarely
to be found. It matters not hIw long
or heavily the rain falls, it seldom or
ever, leaves upon the' fields or high-
ways for any length of time either one
5.,,:ck -of mud or a particle of water.
Alti!;,:,h many of the 1i.'e-cs are an-
tique in form they generally present a
clen-luke aspect, anmid many of t'min a
very graceful exterior. Annually or
semi-yearly the lime brush renews
their color and cleanliness. The sur-
r,.i'il:,;g-'- are in general trim and
tastefully kept, ,enhluie-Jd in lieauty by
flower-plots, and rows, of treed' whose
foliage is forever green. flIe very
fields, which are gardens in them'-
selves, where the busy and industri-
ous pl.trit.s toil half tlit-ir livi's, and,
from which they,.etr'.'t their house-
hold livelihood, are pictures of neat-
ness and cleanliness ;: ev,,-. the ,grow-
inig plants are so regularly and taste-
flIly arranged as to appear as if laid
out with mathematical precision by
the Colonial Su'rveyorh ii-elf. 'Where,
might we ask, for instance is there a
more cleanly town anywhere, than
that of Hamilton,-or even St. Geot-'
?-, whose acute angles and narrow,
\:lh'.nigs form a topographical puzzle
to the -.tranger who enters within its
gates. When Mark Twain, the cele-
brated American humorist, visited'
Bermuda a few years ago, and while
going along one of the streets of Ham-
ilton, he was noticed by his fellow-
traveller taking a short, iaty run to
o.ine side and then to the othi-r.. toop)-
iul town rrds t':, ground and looking as
if he had s'.a]l:,wed Jonah's whale for
an emetic. Apprehensive of. some-
thing wrong his friend hastily inqui-
red. what was the latter ;, whereupon
Mark belched forth, into a corner cre-
vice, a vou! IIe It'.ofllack t:,bacco juiee,
and exclaimed, "..Oh! Jupiter'!! I was
searching for' .oi du ty spot on the
street to'spit into or upon. ,,It would
be an unpalirde 'able sil, ag:riust clean-
liness to soil these immaculate streets
with foul tb-.:.o snittl'..i."
Thl en' wa ll ow theml i f you consi-
der it a virtue,'" exclaim':l hi4i, friend
hulijooriu -ly, "bu t as you seem to
have su'. i a high respect for cleanli-
'ne..4, vonu shonui give your own mouth
the prf'-tience:" ha! ha! what an in-
cons'1i-t.'_it abluirdity, to foul your
i'mouth with what, you would think it a
sin to dirty tll- street V
see the point, as the nyster sail
when being oi'ened," exclaimed the
Shutmioi i-t, and there ith he bolted the
quid fiomn ths mouth, exclaiming, "I
shall never chew again"-and be nev-
er did.
Such was the opinion of one of
America's greatest wits, willth respect
to tile :street-, etc., and such, no doubt,
is the opinion of nearly every stran-
ger who i inako.s a visit to Bermuda.
Not with standing the cleanlike condi-
fio0, of thI:- tow n1, parts of it, particu-
larly the 1.usiines. thoir'ouhfares, re-
quire a rI'--dju.,tment and .top dress-

and every citizens seems in earnest in
restoring it to its pristine beauty. In

Shortly after the arrival of the Orm-
NOCO, on Sunday, the rumor was cir-
culated that the Princess had relin-
quished the idea of visiting Berunia.
This false intelligence apparently ori-
ginatefd from a paragraph in a New
York paper, stating that the vice-legal
party were on their way from Califor--
nia "to, Georgia*,' aid that Princess
Louise was likely to renmai in Charles-
ton during the wi nt,'. .Very probably
the writer of the ,article 'was not ac-
quainted with the fact 'that it lad
been vice-regally and officially decided
that Btermnda was, to be her destina-
tion, and that t-he corvette DIDO had
been fitted out and sent. off to convey
her to her lovely-Il:iid,, Home. De-
cisions of such like n:inre, require va-

The rector of one of the Episcopal
Cu-es, ,a Sbath or'two ago, in the
course of his renii:iik wl-jih-,li were intend-
ed to call the attention of the.congrega-
tion to the vari,.us- events of the past
year, drew ;attention itd' the of.
deaths which had occurred within the
Parish, giving as evidence the number of,
persons over whose mortal remains he
had performed tl" Tist t-;vl rites of The:
'Clincb"-"-- These p-: .'hs were buried
by nite in our Parisli Church Yard, in
sure and ceitain- hp of -a jovfnl resur-
rection; yes my bi-'rthren, in sure and
c(rtainf h',ope of a joyful reisinection.".
Foremost a,,inn tl..- .di-trines taught
by the Rector from, the pulpit are these
-,That the Epis-op1al Church is The
Church, -her -bishops, pi iest.s, and dea-
,cons the only truly and rightly ordained
ministers of Christ, and that at their
hands only can'i the so;r;uneits and rites
of the Christian fait'ii 6e received, the
holy function having diseended in an
unbroken line to these the only and tru-
ly fav i,rd ones.. To ,ive further expres-
Ssio,in to these d,:octrii ., n- tcliher sect is
reco.--nize-.l au thl-ir !jiiiie.,'rs are
ed as though they bh:-Il no exis.teiice. The
above being true, it. follows that none
can be saved l:ut'thriAgl-h the agency:or
assistance of the Anglican Clergy; all
else are lost. Now it is a fact, that a-
iionig those buried &i t!ihe- Parish gi'avre
yard durinit the past. year were some of,
other churches, debari,.-l by tlihe big,.,'try
of others from having tIle i'ite- of their
own peculiar faith perf,,rined over their
mortal remains. It follows, therefore
that although menmay in their lives, by
neglecting to-recogni -e the sole supre-
macy and validity -..f one particular
Church, forfeit; their rights to eternal
happiness, yet by a few wor is of human
origin uttered by a pri.-st. of the Angli-
can Church and .in ground consecrated
by one of the direct and truly apostoli-
cal descent, all is forgiven, and although
days may have, elapsed'since the spirit
winged its way to the eternal regions of
happiness or woe, yet by these means
they are insured at the last lay of a joy-
ful resurrection to et.-riial life. It'is
often said by admirers of the tenets of
the Anglican Church, that her doctrines
are so broad that th'y eumlwbr:v.ce all, and
this is carried out by the f','regoiig. for
to reduce the fatss to plain Euglish,
means, that live as you-please, worship
as you will, die as you like, alvy come to
us for burial (and we have taken care
that come to usi you must) and all will
be well. '
If this i. the point to which Christian-
ity ]as been narrowed, w.!l nimy we ex-
claim as did one of old "Whatis
S., TRUTH ?"

SOn I Monday ev.iipg, 8th' inst., the an-
nual general meeting of the above Club
took 'l;ae.' A con ,mnitte hi-ad been pre-,
viou-ly app,'.iateA tS~d~aw up the Annu-
al Report of which the following is a fair

On Saturday the first. of April of last

in tl,- WYarwiek PLi.iter'.s Clab being_
<.r,-a izi.., with thirt.--;.: '.i iinfemb .rs.
TIle iiieimber.sliip at pr~ienit is above
three hundred r.nd .sixtt. '
'Two Wv eLs after it.- or1':'ni '-;ation the
Club -hippl-.d eiglf-e hliundr-'i boxesof
onionss.- The'- of ilit- Club to han-
dle its pr. i'u':-e was proved ias early as
the 25.i, Apiil. 'On' that date onions
L..d fallen to 3s. per 1,x : when the
.ul) had handbills posted through the
town of Hamillin, :,lvising planters not
to s3ll under 4s. All onions belonging
to members of the club were shipped
and realized the amount of 4s. 4d. per
box, That was the turning point from

that. date onions advancedl from week to
wee-k until they reached is. It is con-
tended bv some that the club did not
contribute to the cause of the advance
in prides ; that it was due .solely to the
short crop: but we maintain that ,but
for the stand taken on the 25th of kpril,
a very large portion of our onion crop
would have ,been sold at 3s. per box,
and some a still lower figure.
By importing its onion seed the Club
has saved to its members the round sum
of two hundred pounds stg.
The Bill to subsidize two steamers to
carry produce to London, was the result
of a petition presented to the House of
Assembly by this Club.
The value of produce sold for mem-
bers of the club during last crop season,
was 4,4e5 15s. 7d. There was a re-
turn commission received' on shipments
to the amount of 39 18s. 0. The a-
mount of fees collected was .48 3s. Od.,
very far short indeed of what should
have been placed to the credit of that
account had some better system of col-
lecting dues prevailed.
In order to reduce as much as possi-
ble the working expenses.of the Club it
was decided to import a small job press
and type. Considerable w,-,rk has been
done on the press, among other things
seven hundred copies of rules and regu-
lations, (a pamphlet of pages) were
printed. Total cost of press,, &c. to date
amounts to 25 9s.' 3d.
After the above report was read the
'election of officers and m:1naging com-
mittee for the current year took place.
W. J. Frith, Esq., M.. C. P. and Mr. R.
Kempe were re-elected to the offices of
President and Vice President with en-
thusiasm. Mr. J. Kempe was appointed
S.e retire, Mr. E." M. Frith, Tre:'-nrer,
;nAld Mr. 0. Cooper, 'Sr., Trustee. Mr.
F. S. Ward received the appointment of
Salesman for the season, with Mr. L. M.
Smith as assistant.
The managing committee held a spe-
cial meeting on Friday last for the pur-
pose of forming some plan by which
They might assist in securing freight for
the London steamers expected to run
bt t wveen that port and Bermuda in the
crop season, and for which a subsidy of
1,000 has been granted by the Legis-
lature. A committee of six was appoint-
ed to prepare lists and secure signatures
thereto from persons who would be wil-
ling to guarantee freight in our -I:and
produce, or its equivalent in CASH
(should the freight not be forthcoming
*when required) to the agents or owners
of the steamers-thus insuring them a-
gainst loss.
The Committee of management feel it
could not adjourn without expressiing its
regret that 'the Board of Works has so
long delayed taking the necessary steps
for s.'cuIriLg the ser\ ice-, of suitable boats
for this important .service. It was their
opinion that much valuable time has
been lost--and that advertisements call-
iug' for tenders should have been pub-.
lished in the London papers asearly as
:December last.
The ComiuuittLe appoilited for the pur-
pose of taking steps to secure freight for
the London stefaitiers are to begin their
work at once, and report on Moinday
evening next, 22nd inst., when the next
meeting of the Committee of manage-
ment will be held.

M IL EDITO.--Since the Peoples
Steamer Bill was thrown overboard I
have heard little said either through the
Press or otherwise with respect to the
prospects 'of the scheme being further
advanced. I feel apprehensive that the
old Hulk Company through their inter-
ested agents in Hamilton have frozen the
scheme out of existence by their carcass-
freezing apparatus. As lam a subscrib-
er to the scheme I would like if yvu
could inform me if the enterprise is like-
ly to go on. Let me know if George
Whitney still lives, as I have, my fears
they have executed him, pr ffrozeii him
also into an ice-berg.
Jan. 13, 1883.
NOTE.-Mr. Whitney still lives and his
scheme also. A model plan of a steam-
ship, with all the latest iiuprovemenits
has been recently drafted by a c ler'rnt-
ed Scotch civil engineer, and is to be
seen at Mr. G. 0. Whitney's ()lice, No. 21
Front Street. Tenders are to be imnedi-
ately called from the most prominent ship-
builders in Britain, and it is expected that
ere many weeks, an agreement for the
building-of-the steAi,,er m\ill be niade,
and the work of construction will be

then carried on without delay. Before
the present year expires the Peoples'
Steamer will likely have become a
floating reality. As soon as further ar-
rangements will be consiunmmated, a com-
pany will be formed, and stock-books
opened, so, that the people of Bermuda
may. have an oplpert unity of becoming
the owners of a steaiu-ship, superior to
anything that has yet ..sailed upon these
waters. It is calculated to run the dis-
tance between here and New York in 46
hours, and use" no greater qtial tity of
coal than the Orifioco requires during
the same length of voyage. As to the
me-it-freezer we know nothing aboub it;
itis a personal matter, and its merits re-
mnaii'a seI-ret to the public ; 'even Edit-
ors are r.fifuis:l the privelege of getting
a peep into its m1iysterius workiurs ; and
its owners apple'ar as if'they had been
run tlro]ugh its mystic machinery on a
trial trip. '
To the Editor ,tT -N' New Em.
DEAR SIR.-I reigr't th-it. tlhei-e should
bea necessity of stating tlihat the aTertion
virile 1:by a c-'ii. sp"n'eitt in your IIl'.ll r
of last week concerning the IRev. Knight's
movements are incorrect.. So, far ;as I
have understood the courtesy so frequent-

ly extended to ministers from other
countries to preach in our pulpits has
not been extended to him, so therefore
he eould maot officiate without being in-
vited. I learn he did take part in the
serwiee at Paget on St. John's day for
the men.i'ers of the Loyal Union -ociety
at the request of Rev. Mr. Lough. I am
informed that his brother ministers have
not even offered him sittings for himself
and family in their churches, where
nearly all the seats are the property of
private individuals. Such indifference
should be beneath the dignity of those
who represent )our mother churches.
Can it be a fact that those Method-
ist people invited toltheir pulpits the
first colored minister of their persuasion,
that visited these Islands, and our Church
folks should be blind to their duty ti
this educated gentleman and Episcopal
Clergyman ? This is an age when per-
sons generally are respected according to'
their position and not to be as I under-
stand is frequently done here, according .
to the complexion. Such conduct be-
longs to by gone ages, the present, be-
ing in Bermuda's history a New. Era, it
is wise to hail with gladness every cir-
cumstance that speaks onward, such a
spirit is in keeping with the age. The
remarks concerning the service at the B.
M. Epi-seopal were also incorrect, as I
learn from one present, that hifirst visit
to that church was cil that evening, to
witness a watch-night. service, and while
there, was asked to address the coingregai"- '
tion whliii after being earnestly request-
ed, spoke a few words for Christ. This
may not be in keeping with the custom
of our Church ministers here ; but in this,
case they have not done what is usual to
ministers from abroad. Conduct more
Yours, &c.,

ii- The remains of the late Miss
Louise AM. L. G. Watlington, who
died on the 7th inst., of pneumonia, at
Alexandria, Virginia, were brought
home by the OrINoCo on Sunday last,
and interred in the family vault,,at
Devonshire, at 11 a. m., yesterday.
The funeral was attended by a large
number of relatives and friends. De-
ceased was the eldest daughter of the
late Capt. John Thomas Watlington,
of Bermuda,: and was aged 18 years
and 4 months.
SA& It has been reported and by
many believed, that the Schooner
"E. Goodwin," in charge of Captain
Giffin, was foundered during the rough
gales of November. The captain pre-
vious to leaving Bermuda called at
this office, and informed us of his
quick run from Nova Scotia, but his
return voyage was not so fortunate a
one. Although the worst apprehen-
sions are likely to be entertained as to
the fate of the captain and crew, there
are still hopes for believing that they
may have been drifted away, and may
yet turn up all right.
A-S On Wednesday and Thlirsday
last a, special Session of the Criminal
Court was held, on the case of George
Cotter, for assault. This case was
brought up and tried during the regu-
lar Fall Session ; but owing to the
jury not-agreeing, it was adjourned
for a new trial; which took place last
week, as referred to. The jury at first
disagreed, and it was not until the fol-
lowing day that a verdict was render-
ed, that of GUILTY. The Judge sen-
tenced the prisoner to 12 months im-
prisonment with hard labor, in the St.
Georges Jail.

Parliament t.

T'he New Year opens badly for Ireland.
Parliamentary representatives are being
tried for hitrh treason ; lesser men are
being imprisoned for inciting to blood-
shed ; more daring men are being tried
for murder, and would-be murderers are
being shot down in their own tracks. In
all conflicts between the lav .authorities
and the disturbers of the peace, the law
now' triumphs. That is one of the
brightest signs. Famine as well as crime
prevails, but the Government, in the per-
son of its Irish Secretary, is investigat-
ing it personudly, and it will be relieved
both by public and private means. We
believe that the enactment and enforce-
ment of a prohibitory law would do more
than all other possible means for the
emancipation aud peace of Ireland. Any
help from America should take the form
of means to assist immigration. That is
the best because most permanent means
of relief.

A Statement of the mercantile failures
in America shows that there was a con-
siderable increase b,,th in the United
States and in Canada last year, over the
preceding year. The total number of
failures in the United States in 1881 was
5,929, and in 1882 7.575, an increase of
1,646 last over the preceding one. The
total number of filgfres in Canada for

1881 was 607 against 1642 in 1889, an in-
crease for last year of .35. This state-
ment as regards niuml)ers is much more
favorable than we would have looked for,
inf view of the great expansion which has
occurred in business during the past
year. The failures have, however, been
more disastrous. The total amount of
the assets in 1881 was $3,278,475, and
in 1882 $3,944.380, while the general
liabilities for 1881 were $6,122.208 a-
gainst 8,131,285 in 1882, showing the
percentage of assets to liabilities in 1881
to be 54 per cent, while in 1882 it was
only 49 per cent. The percentage is not
high, judging from the fact that the per-
centage of assets to liabilities in 1882 in
the United 'States was 50, which, how-
ever, is a gain upon last year, when it
was only 47. The report argues that
"there is good reason for belief that the
" country is returning by gradual steps,
"rather than by a violent movement, to
"a point where the swelling tide of trade
"'will again bring a new excess of disas-
"ters," and that while uncertainty a-
"bounds, the outlook cainniot ,be regard-
' ed as unfavorable."
Annestyhas been granted to such poli-
tical prisoners in Egypt as have not been
already) dealt with.

In the case of Delaney, charged with at-
tempting to shoot Judge Lawson, Justice
O'Brien ruled that the indictment was irreg-
ular, when a nolleprosequi was entered. The
prisoner will be tried on a second indict-
ment, charging him with conspiracy to mur.
Ex-suspect McDermot, of Sligo, has been
committed for declaring that "innocent
blood had been spilt by partisan judges and
drunken jurors."
The trial of Mr. Biggar, member of Par-
liament, for utterances in his recent speech
in Watesford began on Tuesday. Mr. Lea.
my, member of Parliament, defended Mr.
Biggar. The prosecution asked for the lat-
ters committal to answer to a charge of high
treason, and he was committed for trial at
the Spring Assizes ; bail was admitted.
Mr. Trevelyan, Chief Secretary, has gone
personally to inspect the distressed districts.
Three emergency bailiffs were attacked on
Tuesday by peasants in the county of Tip-
perary. In the struggle the bailiffs fired at
their assailants, killing one named Gleeson
and wounding some others. Five of the at-
tacking party were arrested.
LIMERICK, Jany. 3.-A farmer was shot
dead to-day in Broadford. It is believed to
be an agrarian murder.
SDUBLIN, Jan. 3.-Two persons were arrest-
ed to-day suspected of assisting in the at-
tempted assassination of Mr. Field, one of
the jurors in the I lynes case.
This celebrated French Statesman,
died at midnight Jany. 1st just as the
old year was being moulded into the
new. His death is said to have resulted
from blood poisoning from a pistol
wound inflicted accidentally a short time
prior to his death.
Referring to him, the London "Daily'
News," says: "Since the death of
Thiers, there was not in France a man
who could be compared to Gambetta.
He stood like a Saul, head and shoulders
above his compeers." In is quite impos-
sible at present to estimate all at once,
the effect his death will have on the fu-
ture of France, and the fortunes of Eu-
rope. Liberalism throughout the Conti-
nent will deplore the loss of this great
and remarkable statesman, who apparent-
ly exercised his powerful intellectual en-
ergies in a noble cause, and who will
live in history of his native country,
among the most courageous, far-sighted
and effective Founders of the Republic.
He was a man of strong passions and
great power. He knew that his reputa-
tion in the future was bound up in a
war of revenge, and his whole energy
was directed in preparing therefore.
Ganibetta's death no doubt has caused
a profound sensation in Europe. Lead-
ing German papers speak of him as the
incarnation of French revenge, and feel
assured that- the peace-of Europe is now
much safer.
MILWAUKEE, Jany. 10.--At four o'clock
this morning the Newhall Hotel took
fire, the su opposed work of an incendiary.
It caught in the basement and shot up'
with amazing rapidity along the elevated
shaft, thus cutting off escape of many of
the inmates who were sleeping at the
time. Many had recourse to the win-
dows, and jumpt out,, killing themselves
by the fall. It has been estimated that
at least 60 persons lost their life, and
over. 30 are seriously i nj 1red.
Heavy falls of snow have occurred in

For the naval service of the United
States, Secretary Chamber asks congress
to appropriate $27,750,000. That of
Great Britain, is annually 50 millions of

Plans for the re-building of Kingston,

proposed to build a sea-wall to take the
place of the wharves destroyed.
Seventy thousand women are wanted
to even up the sexes in New South Wales.
Some of the Australian colonies are offer-
ing great inducements for single women
to come there and live, and New Zealand
bachelors would embrace a thousand at
short notice. What a chance for the
anxious and aimless, if they could only
get there.

T HE LIVl EIl has ieen knovn as the
PURIFIER of thlie Cir. :ul:;tioi. From its
size and spongy stuIture, -it Ilaays a most

by the actinii f the liver, these .l.ut ,t.mice-
are ,iConverted t iuia form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by a large vein, called
tlie Hepitie r-eii), into the general circula-
tion. Thie new material niow f',imced serves,
two purposes, viz. : the miiirtenance of
heat ini the body and ussistinig in the cel-
growthi oft h.e 1 t' en;.
Dr. Mlurcison says, ''The composition
of liile aind its .c'ri.-ti' is very complex.
It is eulnt.intly being .secreted by the
liver, and, increasing stduenly before eat-
ing, gradually decreases as soon as the ap-
peltie is satisfied and feeding ceases." Now

and. a disposition to leave every-

Wheu neither turpentine nor ben-
ine 'will remove paint spots from gar-
ments, try chloroform. It will absorb
and remove paint which has been on
for six months.
To avoid suffocation in a house on
fire, steep a handkerchief or towel in
water and tie it round the head, eov-
ering mouth and nostrils. In that
condition a person will be in position
to breathe freely and walk in the den-
sest smoke to be met in a burning,
Imitation coral may be made by a
very si i ple and easy process. Twigs,
raisin (talks, and any objects having
the general outline of branched coral,
may be made to resenible that mate-
rial by being dipped in a mixture of
four parts of resin, three parts of bees-
wax, and two parts vermillion, melted
together and thoroughly mixed.
To preserve Lemons fresh, slice
them as thin as possible, and put into
a nice sweet jar with alternate layers
of sugar and lemon; remove all the
seeds, have each' layer of lemon en-
tirely covered with sagar ; tie a thick
cloth over the jar before putting the
cover on, so as to exclude all the air.
I have kept them perfectly fresh for a
year in this way.
Two suggestions have been made
for drying flowers without destroying
their color. The first is to gather the
flowers perfectly dry, and then with a
small paint brush cover them over
with a strong solution of alum, plac-
ing them to dry in the usual way and
changing the paper often. Theoth(r
is to fasten a wire to each stem and
dip the flowers separately in a clear
solution of gummi arabicum, drying
them well suspended on a line.
Before starting on a long walk, well
soap the inside of the socks, making,
in fact, a lather, then draw them on
the feet. Fine worsted or wool socks
are preferable to cotton. Change the
socks when necessary on the journey,
or turn those you wear inside out, and
put them on again. the postmen in
the London suburban districts use
hog's lard and carbonate of soda in-
stead of soap. If a blister has formed
pomu a little spirit into the palm of
the hand, drop into it melted tallow,
and rub the mixture over too blister at
night, and it will be well in the morn-
OLD HOUSEWIFE.-- biters in hoaselold
labors, have you'any idea what a very
useful thing ainmonia is to have in the
house? If not give your maid of ad
work sixpence and an empty bottle at
once and send her to the chemist's for
a supply. Tell her to be sure to get
the spirits of ammonia; it't the same
as hartshorn, but if she asks for that
they'll give her for the same money, a
few drops in a .<'.lliig bottle not as
big as her thumb. While she's gone
Ill tel you how to use it.
For washing paint, put a tablespoon-
ful in a quart of moderately hot wa-
ter, dry in a' flannel cloth, and with
this simply wipe off the wood work ;
no scrubbing will be necessary. For
taking grease spots from any fabric,
use the ammonia nearly pure, then
lay white blotting paper over the spot
and i'on it lightly. In washing laces
put about twelve drops in a pint of
water suds. To clean silver, mix two
teaspoonfuls of ammonia in a quart of
hot soap-suds, using a brush for the
purpose. For cleaning hair-brushes,
&c., simply shake the brushes up and
down in a mixture of one teaspoonful
of ammonia to one pint of hot water;
when they are cleaned rinse them in
cold water and stand them in the.wind
or in a hot place to dry. For wash-
ing finger marks I'rom looking glasses
or win10ows, put a few rimj'-s of am-
monia on moist rag and make quick
work of it. If you want to make your
house-plants flourish, put a few drops
of the spirits in every pint of water
used in watering, A teaspoonful in a
basin of cold water adds much to tihe

refreshing effects of a bath. Nothing
is better than ammonia with clear
water. Ammonia is used as a rising
in cake making, &c., but I cannot re-
commend it for that purpose; and ten
drops in a wine-g ass of water are said
to be an excellent reiniedy for head
ache and acidity of stoninach but I
don't believe in newspaper doctoring
and so wlll not endorse the remedy.
However, for a score of Leeded prac-
tical household purposes, spirits of
ammonia are invaluable, and i'm not
afraid to proclaim it.
Farmers and Chemists are pro-
found concerning the native article in
its free state, and admit its all-import-
ant services, but housewives through-
out the country really lkow very lit-
tle of the manifold uses that can be
made of a pint of the spirits "kept in
the house, bottled and labelled." I
say eniphat i-ally, labelled, because it
is a sin not to have all such things so
con.iiieoui-lv it.ukeLd that. no mii-take
need occur. Let me add here, by way
of cautious, that ammonia directly ip-
plie,' is not go,,d for the eyes. It has
a way of melting them that is any
thii-j-g but agreeable,
