7 HE CA YCOS ISLANDS.
The limited time at my disposal af-
forded me only a transient glance of a
part of the Western Caycos ; as I re-
turned to Dallas's Point that evening
with the full expectation of getting a
chance by a passing craf for East
Harbor. I arose and got ready early
nekt day, and waited and watched, but
no boat came in view ; I heard.1, however,
about noon that she was ,r':i.i!el on
a sand-bar, near Pirate Cay, but was
expected to be off and along at high tide
I threw myself into a hammock slung
in the centre of the room, which served
for kitchen, dininug-rco,'ii, parlor, etc., to
wait patiently and watch the motions of
Jerry as he was going through the pre-
paratory process of dinner. Francis
and his assistant were outside working
at the sponges.
I Wishing to know something more a-
bout Jerry than I had learned from
mere observation, I asked him what was
his other name.
Have no other; only Jerry, that's
all," was the reply.
Had you never any other name but
Jerry ?" I asked.
Yes, sir ; Williams, mother called it;
but father took it away with him when
he died ; and now the folks call mother
Aunt Sarah, and me just Jerry and nuf-
fin else. She lives at Kew ; had nothing
to eat and nothing to do, so she sent me
here to tlop sponges -.:,i make the wit--
"Have you gone to school, .-;:',y ?"
"Oh yes, master; mother took me
one day to see all the lots o' boys and
girls at Mr. Brown's school."
What church do you go to ?" I en-
"Don't go to any ; have to stay and
take care of the house on Sundays."
"What religion do you belong to, I
I belong to the only religion dar is,"
And what religion is that '" I asked,
"'Tis de Baptist-de religion dat
washes de soul, dat drives out de ole
black sins of de soul to de outside of de
skin. Dat's de religion of de colored
folks," exclaimed Jerry seriously, turn-
ing his eyes towards me as much as to
say, "I see by your skin that your sins
have not come on the outside yet."
I smiled humorously, and tlI.-r. no -i
drew out my note-book to inscribe there-
in the name of Jerry as that of a Saint
and Philosopher, as well as a scuttle
boy and sponge cleaner."
About 4 or 5 o'clock that evening the
small sloop came al'u and anchored
for a short time at the Point to get in
supplies ; but there was nothing left,
and Mr. Dallas had not yet ,n;' i. d1.
All the food on board was a quantity of
corn meal, a few pawpaws and some
tomatoes. Having bade good-bye
to my kind friend Francis, and to poor
Jerry also, I went aboard, and at 5 p.m.
we set sail and off, hoping to reach East
Harbor on the following afternoon. We
skimmed along at good pace, but dark-
ness at length compelled us to anchor in
case the craft would ground upon a sand
bar. (Next morning we resumed the
voyage, but found that during the night
the wind had veered round to a "dead.
head" against us, which necessitated
tacking, thereby greatly retarding our
progress in shortening the distance.
Night came again-another 12 hours at
anchorage; morning followed, and with
all sail set we started off, but on the
second tack the old craft, assisted by
some sudden puff of wind, dashed head-
foremost into a sand-bar, and there she
stuck firm. The crew and passengers
numbered six, four of whom jumped
overboard and placed their shoulders to
the stern and pushed, while the two
others on deck with long poles, shoved
simultaneously as each swell of the tide
came along-but all to no purpose, and
after a half hour's series of efforts to
start progress it was decided to make
no further until high tide.
Our provisions being scanty and few
in variety, .a couple of the men armed
themselves with grab-hook poles, and
started off on foot-the water averaging
about three feet deep-and at short in-
;ervals returned with a number of conchs
andfish they had speared. We then
had for dinner and supper both roast
and boiled, accompanied by a pot of
mush coimpised of coarse corn meal, in-
termixed with pawpaws, tomatoes, horse
radish and shalots, and the whole was
washed down by a bowl of charred corn
coffee, without sugar or milk. Never-
theless under the circumstances we ap-
peared, like the rich man, to fare sump-
tuously. ,Full lile came ; all hands to
work.; but norwiilt-:ulin. that every
available int-ans wert, used the boat re-
fused to u o. :,:,.1 thus we were again
thrown upon the mercies of the ocean
drin:i; another night. Her keel had
sunk deep into the sand, and by the
motion of the waves she continued to
bump, bump away during those dark,
dreary and wearisome hours.
Another high tide, another gigantic
effort, a big swell or two, and up she
rises and away'she goes. The winds
were still against us ; but with 'good
steering we managed to get a sight of
the high hills of East Harbor as evening
let fall her curtain and curtailed the
scenes of day. Another night anchored
on the banks-another day, and away
we move, drawing slowly nearer to East
Harbor. I had, in fact, forgotten what
day of the week it was ; but I succeed-
ed by the calculation of events to dis-
cover that it was the seventh day of the
week-the Sunday or Sabbath. About
noon we reached Etst Harbor, a glori-
ous relief to our feelings indeed; and
ere long unexpectedly but fortunately, I
found myself an invited guest of my
generous hearted and newly made friend

THE HERMIT C II1INSON'S ISLAND-A VISIT TO
THE PLACE-OLD FURNITURE AND CHIHA-
RUINS OF ANCIENT ROPE WALK--THE RE-
"DEAR PRESS : The Bermudas are a
group of islands, each h-it..,ig its own
significant title, no matter how small it
is. Amoni others of a peculiarly at-
tractive character is
located about one mile below Hamilton.
I met Capt. Hinson, one day, in town,
and the old gentleman was so much in-
terested in me, that he insisted upon
my visiting him in his home on the is-
land. The invitation was so pressing
that I could not well refuse, and there-
fore consented. A few days subsequent,
in company with Mr. and Mrs. Chas. E.
Hawley of Albany, who were guests
here, and under the immediate care of
Mr. John Lightbourne, we boarded a
dingey and started for the island. The
sail down the bay was r.ifthi. a pleasant
one and was enjoyed by all. It was
made more interesting by Mr. Light-
bourne who entertained the party with
some clever stories. Soon our pilot
sighted Hinson's Island. It was a desolate
looking place, with not the slightest
sign of life about the grounds. Peace
never reigned more supremely with Rob-
inson Crusoe in his island home, than it
did with Capt. Ii, 1...' in this locality.
Wilt difficulty we effected a landing
owing to the rough and rugged condi-
tion into which the coral had been worn
by the waves that lashed the shore.
Then, for the first time was life apparent
on land. Two dogs came running down
from the house, barking and yelping at
us as we advanced. They were harm-
less creatures, and paying little or no
attention to them they soon became
friendly enough. We expressed sur-
prise at the unusual quietness that pre-
vailed, when Mr. Lightbourne informed
us that Capt. Hinson was
in his mode of living, being solitary and
alone. Capt. Hinson is a native of Ber-
muda, where he reared a large family.
All are grown up and settled down for
themselves. Capt. Hinson and his wife,
many years ago, purchased the island
now known as Hinson's i-.1- nd. Upon it
is located a single house, somewhat aged,
but well adapted to an old couple whose
days were gradually drawing to a close.
For many years they enjoyed each
other's society in their island home.
Some four years ago, however, the wife
was prostrated by sickness and death
was the result. This sad event left the
old man alone in his island home where
he continues to live until this day with
his two dogs as his only companions.
Capt. Hinson is now seventy-two years
old, but vigorous and enterprising
enough to work his farm on the island
and make a living.
Iis HOME LIFE.
Ascending a pathway leading from the
shore to the residence, we were soon in
front of the hermit's home. About the
entrance grew lilies and geraniums, cas-
tor oil plants, creeping vines, ferns, etc.
As all these grew wild on the island we
were not much surprised at this lux-
uriance of botanic culture about the old
man's home. Mr. Lightbourne being
intimate with the captain, approached
the door and knocked. For some time
there was no response. Then a rumb-
ling was heard within. Shortly the
door opened and the old man thrust his
head out through the half open door.
He had been lying down, and requested
a few minutes to get himself in a pre-
sentable cou',litioot, which wao. rute'd.
By invitation our party enteiLd the
A QUAINT SIGHT.
One of the principal objects of our
visit was to get a view of the quaint
articles which it was said the captain
possessed in the way of furniture, china,
crockery, etc. A glance at the sur-
roundings convinced us that the place
contained many antiquated treasures.
After the captain detailed briefly some
family matters, his mode of living, etc.,
he was asked about the age tof house-
hold articles. The furniture, he said,
was not very old, about 150 years, and
yet it looked older. Some of the pictures
were also old. He exhibited a pair of
which he purchased in Jamaica many
years ago when he followed the sea.
The candlesticks were of silver and no-
vel in design, while the globes, rising
about two feet above, were some twelve
or fifteen inches in circumference. Mr.
and Mrs. Hawley were anxious to buy
these, but they belonged to his lamen-
ted dead wife," and he could not bpr
to part with them. The captain sa.v
at once that our party was composed
of antiquarians and left nothing undone
to gratify our curiosity.
On the table was a quantity of old
crockery for every day use. It was
stone china, but quite old. Going to a
,cupboard outside the room, the captain
I'"roiuglt mina number of specimens of
old china. The design of the pieces
was peculiar, while the material was of
rare quality. WlIv n asked about its
age, he could not tell, as it had come
down from his forefathers, and he ex-
pected to transfer it to his grandchil-
dren. Although the set was disjointed
and disfigured, yet he would not part
with a single piece for love or money.
A WIr.r.INo, SET.
The last exhibition so pleased his vis-
itors that he could not help smiling at
their apparent ecstacy. Then he con-
cluded to give us a real surprise. Pass-
ing into another room, he returned
with a box which he keeps under his
bed. Placing it on the table before us
he kept his hand upon it and looked a-
bout him, scanning each face well, just
like a person that is suspicious and co-
gitating whether he better trust us or
not. Suddenly the cover was removed
and a pretty sight met our view. It
was a ;ini;'.ninicent set of china, which
was a wedding present half a century a-
go, and which had been carefully pack-
ed away by his departed wife. As he
exhibited piece after piece, tears filled
the old man's eyes. The box and its
contents brought back vivid recollec-
tions of his marriage, the happy life
he had spent with the partner of his
bosom, and finally her separation from
him by death. This set was of very
peculiar design and by far more attrac-
tive than anything we see in these mo-
OWNER OF Two ISLANDS.
Capt. Hinson is the owner of two Is-
lands. One he works himself and the
other he leases. Upon his own Island
he raises onions, potatoes, arrowroot,
strawberries, peas, beans, lettuce, etc.
Although he possesses plenty of land,
he only works sufficient to give him a
living in his declining years. From his
Island a good view of the bay can be
obtained, with its picturesque scenery
and commanding residences. The town
of Hamilton is also in full view with the
vessels in its harbor and the numerous
smaller craft on the surface of the water.
THE DISORDERED STATE
of Capt. Ilinson's home, was anything
but attractive, and he apologized to us.
But how could it be otherwise. He was
unattended by a single human being,
having determined, when his wife died,
to live alone until such time as he was
called to join her. But he could not
let us go without exhibiting to us the
taste of his deceased wife. He there-
fore opened a massive cedar chest, in
which linens, dresses, and other valuable
articles were kept. They had remained
just as they were placed by the hands
of his late wife. No young lady of the
present day could make a more desir-
able exhibit of taste and cleanliness.
But the captain surmised that we were
tiring of sights upon the interior, and
invited us to look about o;it-t..b:, which
we accepted. While Mrs. Hawley
seated herself on the grass under a
shady mangrove, Mr. Hawley, Mr.
Lightbourne and myself accompanied
th.e captain along
TO: ROPE WALK SITE.
Long before Capt. Hinson was 1 "
and for aught that he knows, a ,-!i,''
before, an extensive rope walk existed
on his island, and he pointed out the
site. It is fully aquntiler of a i ilo long.
The stone 'pienrs. anu, ful.lti,:n walls
are still there in a good !tato '.f preset-
vation,, but covered with m -., fernis
and trailing vines. Lighting our cigars
at the extreme end, we leisurely stroll-
ed back, and Mrs. IHaley joining us,
we boarded our craft and returned to
Hamilton, having spent a veiy pleasant
afternoon with the herimt ona linson Is-
We have received the following commu-
nication relative to the paragraph in our
correspondent's letter of May 20, relative to
the suicide of a color sergeant at the Pros-
pect barracks. That article gave the sever-
al rumors afloat relative to the cause which
led to the suicide One of these the follow-
ing letter from Lt -Col. Crofton of the Ir-
ish Rifles refutes.
EDS. PRESS : The as'* -ion, by whomso-
ever made, that Color Sergt. Galbally was
obnoxious to the members of a secret soci-
ety in the barracks, who were anxious to
get rid of him," and that "the sergeant's
wife was induced to enter a plot to harass
him," is a foul calumny on a thoroughly
loyal regiment in which I am proud to say
no such thing as a secret society" exists;
and also on a respectable young married
No earthly tribunal can now attempt to
decide the truth or falsehood of the accusa-
tion made against the late Color Sergt Gal-
bally, but one thing 1 can and do assert, and
that is. that up to the very hour in which
the rash act was committed, Color Sergt.
Galbally's wife, so far from "severely re-
proaching him," assured him repeatedly of
her perfect trust and confidence in his inno-
ceiice, and earnestly'urged him not to allow
the accusation to weigh so deeply on his
Sergt. Galbally always bore an irreproac6h-
nble character in the battalion, but was of a
morbidly sensitive disposition, which doubt-
less induced him in a fit of madness, to take
his own life, rather than endure what he
considered the, disgrace of having such a
charge brought against him.
I trust yon will insert these few remarks
in the columns of your widely-circulated
paper, in justice to those assailed ijy the

HAMILTON, AUGUST 15, 1883.
THE CONDEMNED SPARROW.
T.'he Sparrow is an ancient Scripture
m.entioini. lii r, and according to his-
torical ornit!,.,.* v some of its ances-
tors had a sail around the world in
Noah's Ark. By this and subsequent
voyagesit has been favored with the
honor of visiting different countries,
hence it may be aptly termed "a bird
of passnae." During the early days
of thi Christiau era it must have been
nmtnerou-s. necessitating means for
checking it.-i multiplication; for Christ
speaks of it as an article of merchan-
dise.-He says (see Mathew 10 chap.,
19 v.) "Are not two sparrows sold
for a farthing?" It does not appear
that the political synagogue of the
Jews had passed a Sparrow Bill,"
having for its object the "wholesale
slaughter of the innocents," nor put a
a price PER CAPITA upon the bird. It
simply appears that it was killed and
'brought to market like any other
fowl, to be converted into savory food,
such perhaps as Pontius Pilate pies
and King Aggripa soup. The spar-
row eventually emigrated from Asia
into Europe, and selected for itself a
congenial home in England. Unfor-
tunately, however, a few years ago
several of the species were imported
to Canada, the United States, Ber-
muda, etc. The expectation was that
every vegetable destroying grub and
other insects would be destroyed by
them; but of late years, from some
cause not definitely explained it has
created a host of enemies who now
seek its life. In Bermuda the "hue
and cry" has got up; and the wise
Fathers of the political synagogue
upon the Hill, somewhat premature-
ly and unjustly, without even allow-
ing the Queen's Council to defend it
on a fair trial, has issued a mandate
to the general public, to go forth in
their armor, and slaughter the spar-
row, and for each feathered corpse
that shall be brought unto them they
shall receive the sum of one penny."
In Christ's time a pair of sparrows
were sold for one farthing; but our
politico-fathers, famed for their gen-
orosity have agreed to allow one pen-
ny a sparrow-carcass. Bravo! Noble

WHO ARE TO BE LAWYERS ?
To the Editor of the New Era. -
DEAR SIR,-I ami one of those individuals,
who in the aggregate, compose what, in the
parlance of the Honorable House of Assem-
bly. are termed "The denominations." As
such, and possessing some cheek, as well as
some gratitude, and a little of what is called
the moral sense," it is my desire to offer a
word of comment upon a bit of recent le-
gislation. I refer to the Comrpilation of
Laws Bill." I refer more particularly to
the provision in the Bill for the gratuitous
distribution 'of the coming Book. As to
this particular, the Bill creeped upon the
table, in its original form, smeared with the
ink of sect, of scism, of party, of partiality,
of injustice. Each Church Vestry was. to
receive a volume, each denominational or-
ganization was to receive- 0. The
House washed its hands forthwith. Honor-
able gentlemen rose as politicians in sub-
lime contempt for ecclesiastical jobbing
with common funds and said, "No," and
added "if you give any Church body a
copy of the lw, give all Church bodies a
copy of the law." Here as in the Paget
election affair, Mr. Dill specially took a
stand which does him the highest credit,
and which promises for him more than an
honorable mention in the day that the his-
tory of this chapter of our life shall be writ-
ten. Mr. Dill's action was simply right, and
it is none the less admirable because it was
simply right. And all that is said in recog-
nition of Mr. Dill's services has a bearing
upon the character of the attempt to beguile
the House into the legislation proposed by
the Attorney General, That statesman not
only proposed the measure but attempted
to support it. He was followed with at
charming appreciation and a lovely unanim-
ity by his legal colleague. There was a
principle involved. These gentlemen saw
the point, and rather than admit the prin-
ciple and act upon it, committed themselves
to the use, in the name of an argument, of
the thinnest of possible pretexts-the in-
sufficiency of books to supply the represen-
tative bodies of the "denominations." Six
copies will meet the case. Whether the
Church Vestries have the compilations or
have them not" the Attorney General" did
not see wl'y copies should be given to other
religious denominations. The church is to
a great extent to -be regulated by the laws
that the compilation will contain, other de-
nomiinations are not; with the exception of
the Acts under which all denominations are
endowed, denominations outside of the
Church of England, are free from the laws..
The Parish Vestries should have a copy
without any doubt." (CoIoNIST's report).
It is pitiable to hear a man in Mr. Grey's
position defining his actual breadth in such
terms. The Attorney General is surely
loosing the faculties that he did on a time
possess. His memory is no less defective
than a faculty of a higher order that could.
be named. He played a part, only a few
years ago in passing a Bill to incorporate an
ecclesiastical body entitled in the Act of in-
corporation. '" The Church of England in
Bermuda," and he evidently has that body
in mind, when in the language above quot-
vd, he spoke of the t'hurch of England "
Agaii, he sweeps through the past in Ohe
exmrise (f- the recolitive mental -endow-
ment, and collects a solitary Act or series of
Acts with which the "other religious de-
nominations" have to do. Now I am no
lawyer., nd certainly no.Attorney General,
yet I wot of a few more Acts that I expect
to find in the new issue, in which the de-
nominations" have some interest. They
are governed by an Act qualifying others
than those in Hloly Orders or in member-
.ship, in the Church of England. to preach
and teach in these Islands by more tlhan
one Act relating to marriages ; by Acts that
bear upon burial, the opening of graves,
vaults, etc. ; by certain provisions of the
Church Ve-try Act; by section iv. of the
Synod Act; by an Act protecting religious
bodio niaint rowdyism ; by the concurrent
en.low'rnent Acts ; by the Wesleyan, and
the Reformed Episcopal incorporation Acts,
and by- if I were a lawyer no doubt
other Acts wold occur to me. Even these,
however, indicate that we are not such a.
lawless set as some word. imply that we are.
Besides, if we take into our reckoning the
bearing of the Synod Act upon the govern-
ment of "the Church of Epgland in ier-
'mu ida," or in other words, if we look square-
ly at the Church of England in Bermuda,"
that is concerned about the new compila-
tion, and at the other religious bodies of to-
day, the number of Acts of Parliament
which govern the one, will not be fonnd
greatly in excess of the number of those that
govern the others. With the.Syit.ol Actand
the Vacant Benefices Act in her pocket, or
on her table, "the Church of England in Ber.

be pretty independent, and would have no
great cause for worrying, had she gained

ALL BUT FORGOTTEN;
GOV. LEFROY'S PAMPHLET.
The "Agricultural Chemist" affair
which has been agitating our House
of Assembly lately, brings to my re-
collection an old saying, "out of sight,
out of mind." What .has become of
Governor Lefroy's pamphlet which
was published here a eow years ago?
That little book contained 'all that
was necessary to be known regarding
the chemical analyses of the soils of
Bermuda-it was carefully compiled
by that gentleman, who spared no
pains to make it comprehensive and
useful to the community for whom it
*ns intended; and unlens I err the
author paid the greater part, if not all
the expenses att.!"i'i:g the printing
and publication of the 500 copies is-
sued. But, instead of proving of any
material benefit, this highly commend-
able action of Governor Lefroy
merely proved the utter uselessness of
any step in this direction, and forceF
us to the conclusion that money paid
to an Agricultural Chemist, would be
money thrown away! Governor Le-
froy's pamphlet h-as sunk into, obliv-
ion; and the work of a Chemist would
as surely do so, eventually, and con-
fer na more perceptible benefit on
Bermuda than did the pamphlet.
Perhaps our respected Governor was
not aware, when he made his speech
at the opening of Parliament that any
such work had been published; but
there were those who could and should
have enlightened him on the subject;
and it was anything but complimen-
tary to Governor Lefroy to make no
mention of his efforts in this direction
when circumstances so loudly called
for it. However, since there is some
likelihood of this HIGHLY GILDED bud
expanding into a lasting and gorgeous
Public Garden" instead of a common
and evanescent "Chemist," let us
hope that it will not be placed "out of
sight" of the PEOPLE of Bermuda, for
whose benefit it is understood to be
brought into existence.
Your old friend,
August 13th, 1883.
A Trip to the Turks and Caicos
Islands, West Indies.
1HE CAYCOS ISLANDS.
A short time after my arrival at East
Harbor, while seated in one of the front
rooms of Mr. Godet's house, enjoying a
pleasant conversation with him about
Bermuda, his native place, a rap was
heard at the door, and in response in
came an old colored man, decrepid in
every limb, and totally blind, and led by
a little boy : he must have been verg-
ing upon the first round hundred years :
he was apparently a true representative
of Age and want-an ill match'd
Mr Godet," exclaimed the old chap
with a healthy voice, as he entered.
Well Tenesee!" (such was thfc
name he was generally known by) "is
Yes Massar its me, and Ise come
on de most important business," said the
"Another whale found at Sand Bay,
I suppose ?" exclaimed Mr'. G.
No Mlassar, no, not that either ; but
Ise been told that my ole Massar the
Hon Mr. Lee who prints the "Gazette"
at Bermuda, has just arrived at your
place, and Ise want to SEE him.,,
How c yoyou SEE him when you
are as blind as a bat ?" exclaimed Mr. G.
Well Ise' forget I was blind, but I
wants a friendly conversation wid my
old Massar Lee about de old times when
I was de house boy of his father's family
afore he was born,",
When told that he had been misin-
formed, and thlt Mr. Lee was dead
the old man shed tears exclaiming very
affectedly-" M ee:- so sorry he's gone!"
May de good Lor bless his noble
soul? for had Ishe met him to day as I
spected, he would have made my poor
ole heart glad, by a few pounds from
He then went away apparently much
greived; but whether his feelings arose
from sorrow for the dead or from dis-
appointment in the money anticipation
.was not definitely made known.
Mr, Godet having been born and
spent a number of his earlier years in
Bermuda was plea;wd to meet with me
to have a good chat about people and
places and things in general belonging to
About 20 years ago he emigrated to
East 11arbor, and connected his inter-
ests with the salt business: and not-
withstanding the terrible depression
which has blefailen that trade he at
length through perserverance and ener-
gy succeeded in becoming one of the
largest inanufactiireis and dealers in the
salt business, having as private property
several excellent salt Poindrs, or Salinas :
besides house pr.,lpe'i ty. .v. which con-
stitute him one oft the t-w who have pro-
fitably and succ-ssfully contested with
the salt failure.
Accompanied with him I visited the
salt Ponds. They extend from the
Eastern point, north of the town, to a
distance of at least two miles, and in
area comprise 350 acres. They have
been in operation 100 or more years,
and are said to produce a very superior
article. At intervals throughout the Sali-
na fields were to be seen, resembling
hills of snow, large stacks of salt each
containing some thousands of bushels.
The most attractive, at least, the most
wonderful, is what is termed the "Boil-
ing Hole," It is situated near the centre
of the Pond fields; and is enclosed by
a strong stone cemented wall forming
a square of about 20 feet, its depth is
about 18 feet, having a circular hole
in the centre about seven feet in diame-
ter. Through this hole the water rises
and falls correspondingly with the ebb
and flow of the tides, which evidently
shows that there is a subterraneous
passage with the ocean. When the tide
flows the water boils up like overheated
water in a chaldron. All the Ponds are
;tppli, with ocean water b, this pas-
sige only. In the walls are three doors,
and so adjusted on hinges that they act
similar to valves in a pump, and the
water, supply is in this way nicely ad-
justed. For instance, when there is an
overplus of water in pans or salitas by
excessive rain falls, the surplus dJu i..
the r-celi:::: tide forces the inner hing-
ed door open .and disappears with the
re.,- ding tide water.
The shortest distance direct to the
ocean from the Bdiling Hole,'" is not,
less than one mile.
In the Turks Island the water is con.-
veyed from the ocean to the Ponds by
canals or aqueducts,,vl-i-r *. were it not
for this subteraneous passage at East
Harbor a channel would at an enormous
cost, have had to be cut through the
rocky hills, which lie betv.'e..-n the Ponds
and the Ocean. It seems as if nature
had wisely designed the locality for salt
making, and the underIground channel
for the special purpose of supplying the
Ponds with sea water. The town is
situated south westward of the Ponds,
and on the extreme Eastern point of
what is termed East or GRAND Caycos,
and about 20 miles north west of Turks
It assumes the aspect of a village, the
main part of which is somewhat regular-
ly laid out; while the suburbs-so to
speak-consist of houses scattered at
random. There are a number of re-
spectable stone housdl, but the majori-
ty are wooden stri,.ftuir-s, which could be
made more wh.'lesomin and agreeable in
appearance with a good layer of lime
wash over the roof and walls.
The white wash mania of Bermuda
seems never to have reached any part
of either the Turks Islands or of the
Caycos. It may bN so here as in other
salinous districts, that the people have
got so thoroughly disczusted with :the
white color of the salt that the "type
of purity" has become distasteful.
The most extensive sail manufacturers
and dealers here are Messrs Frith and
Murphy, of Grand Turk. They have
supplied themselves with large salt
barns, salt ,rind.hinr mills, &c. besides
having recently constructed a wharf
pier projecting into the Harbor several
hundred feet, and adapted for the pur-
pose of conveying the salt to vessels that
are being laden.
There were at the time some immense
piles of salt on the wharf awaiting ship-
The town is situated on high, rocky
land, with little surface soil and the sur-
rounding landscapes have a somewhat
sterile appearance. The shore to the
east and north is girt by a range of low
hills densely covered with scraggy
Nearly all the inhabitants are of the
colored race, and their chief employment
is in connection with the salt business ;
in fact it is their only actual means of
The religious denominations are Bap-
tist Methodist and Episcopalians, the
former largely predominates.
There are a custom house, a police
station and a small "Lock-up," which
is seldom used as tho morals of the
people are excellent. During my two
days' stay at East Harbor I spent a very
pleasant time, more so on account of
having met with so intelligent, so cour-
teous and generous a man as Mr. Wm.
B. Godet, with whom anit whose kind
family I parted with feelings of respon-
sive gr'ati udie.

James Carey shot dead.
THE IRISH INFORMER FOLLOWED AT SEA AND
KILLED-HIS ASSASSIN ARRE> TED.
L:,.i';:, July 30.-Intelligence Ihas
just been ,eceiyed here that Ja-n'es
a'.u-'v-, the informer in the Phcenix (u' l
Murder cases, was shot dead -.te-,*I.lay
on the steamship Melrose while lJ.,li"'
at .Port, Elizabeth, Natal, The deed,
was committed by a fellow passenger
named O'Donnell, who is in costodv.
The Government has taken special and
expensive measures to protect Carey.
DUBLIN, July 30.-The news of James
. Carey's death caused many exhibitions
of delight on the streets here.
A. large crowd gathered to-night in
front of James Carey's late residence,
cheering loudly because the informer
had been killed. The Dublin author-
ities believe that O'Donnell is the man
who was implicated three years ago in
the attempt to blow up the Mansion
I house in London, and who escaped
with Coleman to New York. The Gov-
ernment selected Africa as the s fest
place for Carey. -It was doubtful wheth-
er he knew his destination before sail-
ing. It was not revealed to the police
who took him from Dublin to London.
Carey was travelling under the name
of Power. His family were with him.
Carey embarked at Dartmouth. From
Maderia he wrote a letter to the author-
ities in which he described the voyage,
and said he had shared in a conversa-
tion In which the Invincibles and "the
miscreant Carey," were especially de-
nounced. He said that he intended to
forget that Ireland ever existed.
LoNxrox, July 31.-It appears that O'-
Donnell dogged Carey from London.
Both sailed in the steamer Kinfauns
The "Daily Telegraph" says: "The
Government have little doubt that
Carey was followed from Dublin. They
believe that the Fenians had taken
most elaborate measures to' prevent his
escape. According to the latest ac-
counts the. murder occurred at sea.
Carey was not killed outright, but died
soon after he was shot. O'Donnell sur-
rendered himself quietly. He was
placed in irons, and was handed over
to the police when the Melrose arrived
at Port Elizabeth."
Felix Lynch, of Rochester, a member
of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, has
made some remarkable statements re-
lative to his efforts to kill the informer
Carey. When asked about the matter
and the connection of the Order of
Ilibernians with the Invincibles, Lynch
said : Well I can't tell you too much.
I tell you what I can about the shoot-
ing of Carey. At the time of the
Phoenix Park assassination Cary was a
leading man in the plot. He betrayed
his fellowconspirators, and from that
time his death was certain. No man
can act the traitor to an Irishman and
live. His photographs were sent from'
Dublin all over the world. It was
planned to kill the villain, no matter
which way he werit. His. escape from
the avenger was impossible. We re-
ceived a picture of him six weeks ago,
and were informed in a secret manner
that he would probably land at Quebec
from the Allan steamer City of Mon-
treal. I went to Quebec and was there
when the steamer arrived."
Q. Were, theretany representatives
of other branches there at the same
time ?" A. "No not one. Thero is a
branch of the organization in Quebec,
but it was not the business of any of
the members to be at the dock."
Q. Am I to understand then that
if Carey had lin iel. there you' would
have done O'Donnell's work ?" A. Yes,
I would; thougi.h I suppose I ought not
to say so now. I was on the dock-by
the gangway and looked over the pas-
sangers as they landed. I would have
known Carey in a minute. I had his
photograph in my po'.,:-ssion then, and
still have it; but Carey did not arrive
and I came back home."
Q. "Were you glad to be relieved
of an unpleasant duty, or did you feel
disappointed ?" A. "I was somewhat
disappointed that I did not get a chance .
to give the betrayer his deserts. I was
confident, however, that the work would
be done by somebody sooner or later.
I know the plan was to well arranged
to fall through"
Q. "Do you know O'Donnell?" A
"Only by reputation. He is a member
of the New York branch of the Order of
Ilibernians, and a leader. I think heI
is about thirty-five years old. 11e 'i ooc
of the Invincibles.
Q. Are you one of the Invincibles ?"
A. "Yes, I am, and it is the orginiza-
tion to be thanked for the shooting of
this scoundrel, Care3. The Invincibles
are a much stricter and closer order
than the Hibernians. The Church some-
times recognizes the order of Hibern-
ians, but the Invincibles are excluded.
When O'Donnell did the shooting he
did it under orders from the Invinci-
bles, and the object which the orgini-
zation has been seeking was finally ac-
complished. I might as well say the

Latest about the Earthquake
Naples, July 30.-The scenes here,
occasioned by the disaster are heart-
rending. The hospitals are crowded
with wounded survivors, and the dead
houses are filled with bodies of the
victims. Tho bodies of several Nea-
politan ladies have been recovered
from the ruins. Five houses remain
standing at Cass.miccioola. Cries for
help can be heard coming from the
ruins. Sappers are hard at work en-

lesque, which opened" with a scene
representing an earthquake.
London, July 31.-It is now stated
as certain that 4,000 persons perish-
ed on the island of I3chia on Saturday
night. The stench from dead bodies
of human beings is almost unbearable.
Several men and women were rescued
from the ruins on !' 'rl;;,y morn ng.
Many more might have been saved if
larger force of rescuers had been
available earlier. Many persons who

shock of earthquake was felt on the
Island of Ischia last evening, which
put a stop to the work of searching

believed that some of the persons
who were buried under falling build-
ings Saturday evening are still alive,
in the ruins. The use of lime on the
ruins is therefore opposed. King
Humbert yesterday visited the scene
of the earthquake and went over the

THE HAYTIEN REVOLT.
PORT AU PRINCE, July 24.-The
,country is in a very agitated condi-
tion." A revolution is momentarily
expleeted in this city. The govern-
ment is penniless and business is at a
complete standstill. The town of
Jacmel has pronounced in favor of
revolution and a pronunciamento is
immediately expected at Cape Hay-
tien. A great battle has been fought
before Jeremie, in which the govern-
ment troops were completely defeated
and seven of their generals were tak-
en and executed. The revolutionists
are marching on Leogane. The gov-
ernment is therefore raising the siege
of Miragoane and covering Port aun

Colonial Secretary, stated in the House
of Commons this evening that the gov-
ernment had received a telegram from
the Goveinor of Natal, in which the
latter says he is informed that King
Cetewayo, who was reported to have
been killed by, the Zulu insurgents, is
in the reserve territory. A reliable
witness says he has seen him alive, since
his reported death. One statement
that Cetewayo is alive comes from Cete-

took refuge in an isolated kraal after the
late battle, having received two wounds
in the leg. The Standard's" corres-

THE J.'EJ ERo.
THE COOK'S STORY.
"No," I said; "go away." I al-
Ways did say that, when they came
a bother me in thb kitchen, those
fellows. /' No," I said; but he would
come in, and stood there looking' so
'wretched that I couldn't do nothing'
fiercer than shake the soup ladle at
him, and yell, "Well now, what do
"Something to eat," says he, as
meek as a lamb. "Mother is ill, and
father is dead, and she and I and
baby are so hungry !"
"Just the same old story," says
I, "that every beggar-boy has to d
me for years. There-go away."
And I remember, as I did it, fast-
onipg my breastpin, that had a trick
of coming undone. I knew by that
that I had it on. It was one I'd had
given me, and it was worth a great
deal. It had belonged to a rich old
hady I waited on, and poor folks
generally don't have such pins. But
he looked so pitiful that my heart
melted, and says I, "I know you're
lying, but it's just me to be imposed
upon. Sit down there and eat your
breakfast' and I'll give you some
And then I went on with the pud-
din,' keeping' my eye on the child.
He was as white as a sheet, and his
cheeks as hollow as a man's of eighty,
and his poor little feet were bare, and
the tears would rise into my eyes
whether I would or no; and I felt
quite wicked for havin' spoken so at
The short and the long of it is, I
stuffed his basket as full as full could
be, and sent him off stuffed full too ;
and I went back to the kitchen, and
was feeling quite contented like, and
as though I'd done my duty, when
feeling' something queer about my
collar, I put my hand tp, and the
pin was gone.
I looked all over the floor. It
wasn't there. I hadn't been out
of the room, and in a moment I
know who had got it. It was that
beggar-boy. That came of harbourin'
beggars for the first time in my life
I didn't stop long to think. I jest
pitched what I had in my hand on
the floor. 'Twas only a wooden bowl;
but I'd a done it jest the same, I'm
afraid, if it had been a chany dish to
be stopped out of my wages. And
out I went into the street.
Mr. Policeman," I cried, to one
that was jest a-goin' by, by luck,
"catch' that beggar-boy. He's hook-
ed my pin."
And I never saw nothing like the
way that big man strided up the
street, and pounced on to that boy.
He gave a screech, and then began to
cry; and all I says to the policeman
was, "Get back my pin. That's all
I care for."
But that was easier said than done.
The pin was not to be found. He'd
throwed it away, most likely. And
then I was in such a boiling rage that
I could have killed him.
"Lock him up," says I to the police-
man, and I'll appear agin him to-
And then I had to go back to the
kitchen; for be a cook's emotions
what they may, her 'missus and her
master won't think of going' without
their dinner-particularly her master.
Well, I kept boilin and frettin,'
and wishin' I could hang the boy.
And never in my life did I have
such a time with missus. It was,
"Cook, the meat ain't done enough ;
"Cook, the gravey is too thick." I
couldn't eat a bit of anything myself,
and jest sit down and cried.
Next morning I went to the police
court and told my story, and the po-
liceman said he'd seen the boy throw
something away; and the magistrate
he sentenced him to be locked up for
I dunno how many days; and all the
while the little rascal kept crying,
and vowing he never saw the pin..
It madeit so 'much the worse. If he
hIad owned the fact, he wouldn't have
deserved half as bad. But as it was,
I was glad to see him punished, and
I'd a been gladder still to see him
When I went home I felt better ;
and so, finding myself hungry for the
first time since I had lost my pin;
I got out the cold pudding and a bit
of meat, and sat down alone by my-
self in the kitchen to eat them.
"No wonder missus found fault,"
said I, as I put my spoon into the
pudding. "There's lumps in it like
stones." And with that I tried to
break it, and couldn't; and feeling
curious like, I put it on the table. It
seemed to be a real stone. In the
sugar likely," says 1, and broke the
pudding away; and there in the
midst I saw-my breastpin. It had
dropped in while mixin' it, and there
About an hour afterwards all the
servants down the street had it to
tell that Ann Gerry-that's me-
had gone mad, and rushed off to
drown herself. I went with nothing'
on my head, a wringin' my hands aind
crying; but where I went was to the
court, to beg and pray that dear boy's
pardon of the magistrate, and ask
him to lock me up in the precious in-
That boy I consider my boy now.
He shall have all I've got in the sav-
ings bank, every penny. A better
boy never lived; and as to his mo-
ther, she's better now, and doin' fine
washin,' as I can recommend to suit
any lady. That boy loves me. And
this I always say to all I know when
I hear 'em talk of beggars and
tramps: "Don't judge 'emr, because
of their poverty. Don't judge, lest,
as our parson reads out of the Bible,
you may be judged yourselves by
them above you."
Those ain't the words, but it's the
spirit, and so I hope it's all the same,

A Derangement Of the
THE CAUSE OF DISEASE IN THE
_A.nd Nervous System,
Below will be found a brief Sum-
mary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before the Eclectic College of Medicine by
PH. J, IfHfYB ,
T HE LIVER has been known as the
great. BLOOD-MAKER and BLOOD-
PURIFIER of the Circulation. From its
size and spongy structure, it plays a most
important port in the animal economy. as
regards assimilation and nutrition. Food
taken in tlie month and acted unon' by tihe
digestive organs or the stomach is con-
verted into Glucose and Peptone, and in
these forms enters the Portal vein. Ilere,
by the action of the liver, these substances s
are converted into a form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by a large vein, called
the Hepuatic vein, into the general circula-
tion. The new material now formed serves
two 'purposes, viz. : the maintenance of
heat in the body and assisting in the cel-
growth of the system.
Dr. Murchison says, "The composition
of bile and its secretion is very complex.
It is constantly being secreted by the
liver, and, increasing suddenly before eat-
ing, gradually decreases as soon as the ap-
petite is satisfied and feeding ceases." Now
if this most important organ of the body
become torpid, or the passage of bile in-
terfered with, emaciation and disease en
sue. I note eight marked peculiarities
that now occur, and which we all know of :
1. The patient complains of a
feeling of weight and fullness of
2. IDistention of the stomach
and bowels by wind.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
5. A bad taste in the mouth,
especially in the morning, and
6. Constination, with occasion-
al attacks of diarrhea.
7. Headache in front of head.
8. Depression of spirits and
great melancholy, with lassitude
and a disposition to leave every-
thing for to-morrow.
All of the above symptoms go to show
functional derangement of the liver ; and
now comes the great importance of any
error made as to the condition of the pa-
tient. He should immediately provide
himself with a LIVER STIMULANT,
the most common form of which is a Pill
Daily experience shows that this, when
the Pill is compounded properly, is the
readiest mode of inciting and. promoting
the action of the liver, and can be almost
always relied on. I have devoted many
years of my life, as many of yon now be-
fore me know, to compounding a Pill that
will act readily and systematically as a
Bilious Remedy. I ',l not believe in
great purgatives, andl therefore have made
a Pill, one of which is an active anai
thorough dose. I have called it
M li.IYIKnS NfW~ Ir PIL
One Pill is a Dose! One Pill is a
Dose One Pill is a Dose!
For all diseases of the Kidneyv, Reten-
tion of Urine, )r. Haydock's Pills are at
