THIE LOTTERY OF LIFE.

H -ry Leslie, having been left a poor
orphan, sought to earn her living by
working as a designer in wall papers.
This hurt the feelings of her fashionable
cousins, the Percivals, with the excep-
tion of w, -nug T.',,'. who, adnir..1 .hr
greatly. Mr. D'Eresby, a millionaire,
wanting designs for an elegant house
he was about to build, was referred to
Mary ; and stepping to her table at the
furniture establishment-" Are you the
drawing girl?" he demanded, somewhat
brusquely.
"Yes, sir, I am," said Mary, demure-
ly.
"Well," said Mr. D'Eresby, after a
moment's survey of the work upon
which she was engaged, "I believe you
are the very one to carry out my ideas.
My carriage is at the door-get into it."
Mary, bewildered, was whirled up
along Piccadilly, by the side of a man
who talked of Michael Angelo, Raphael,
and Leonardo da Vinci, as if they were
people he had just met. It was very
strange-but, after all, there was an
element of "niceness" about it. Mary
Leslie had had a dearth of adventures in
her life up to the present date, and here
seemed the dawning promise of one.
Mr. D'Eresby's sudden apparition on
the matrimonial horizon caused no in-
considerable sensation, as may readily
be conjectured, and half the marriage-
able young ladies in town prepared
their arrowy smiles and glances for his
heart-among others, Josephine Perci-
val.
"I MUST marry rich," argued that
young lady, for I have such expensive
tastes, and I should so enjoy a hand-
some home. I'm sure I'm as goodlook-
ing as the average, with a little lily
powder, and my hair nicely CREPE, and
there's no reason why I should'nt win
the prize. At all events I'll have a try."
,'-'t's it" said Tom, scornfully ; "go
in and win,"
"You're a goose, Tom!" said Miss
Percival, somewhat discomfited.
I may be a goose," answered Tom,
"but I ain't a girl, glory be thanked.
What fools they all are-except Polly
Leslio !"
Mll<-. Percival was introduced by dint
of special manoeuvering that very even-
ing to Mr. D'Eresby, and congratulated
herself on making considerable headway
in the good graces of that extremely
eligible gentleman. And as time went
on, appearances grew more and more
favorable. Mr. D'Eresby was evidently
amused by her artless prattle and lisp-
ing observations, and it was surely but
one step from amusement to devotion.
To be sure, he never said anything that
she could construe into a special mean-
ing on the matrimonial question ; but
as long as time and the dictionary were
open to him, who knew what might next
transpire ? Mi l'ercival began grave-
ly to consider the relative merits of sat-
in and reps silk for a wedding-dress,
while Tom, shrewdest of them all, bit
the end of his slate pencil, and grinned
like a gorilla.
One beamy summer morning, Miss
Percival made one of a party of ladies
who were admitted to view the elegant
D'Eresby mansion, now just on the verge
of completion. Josephine was in high
spirits, of course.
"He certainly must have meant some-
thing," thought Josephine, "or he never
would have asked me so particularly to
come and look at the rooms."
Whether Mr. D'Eresby's "meaning"
applied equally to the seven other maid-
ens and the two blooming widows that
accompanied her, Miss Percival, not be-
ing of a strictly logical nature, never
paused to consider.
How do you like this room?' asked
Mr. D'Eresby, as they paused in one
which looked as much like the heart of
a blue bell as a furnished apartment well
could do.
A velvet carpet in shaded azures-
a blue paper strewn with tiny fern
leaves in gold-blue satin chairs, and a
ceiling just tinted with the cerulean of
the mid-day sky-it preserved a strange
and pleasing individuality in every fea-
ture and corner.
"Oh, it's bee-yu-ti-ful!" murmured
Josephine, clasping her kid-gloved hands
in a species of lady-like ecstacy.
"I am glad you like it," said D'Eres-
by, moving back a tiny marble statuette
of Eurydice, and critically adjusting an
aquarium in the window. "This is to
be Mrs. D'Eresby's sitting-room!"
"Your mother?" asked Josephine,


smilingly interested.
"No-my wife."
Oh, you puzzling man !" cried Jose-
phine, making a little dive at him with
her lace fan. "You know very well
you're not married !"


"I shall bU very soon!"
Miss P-rcival blushed. The seven
other young ladies looked enviously at
her, and the two widows tossed their
heads and muttered something about
" artful minxes," while Mr. D'Eresby
threw open a door leading to a suite
of pw,,,m p a'd nd panelled in er::i-
and -Ilve-r.
The first apartment, evidently a sit-
ting-room, was not empty. A girl in
a plain gray walking dress stood in front
of one of the malachite mantels, making
some little drawing or memorandum
on the back of a letter. She turned as
the party flowed into the room ; and
Josephine Percival stood face to face
with her cousin, Mary Leslie.
You needn't stare so, Joe !" said Tom
Percival, who was looking over the
shoulder of Ithe young ARTISTE ; "it's
Polly l-1. ---.n.. she designed all these
wall-paper patterns; yes, every one
of them !"
Who ?" inquired Mrs. Thaddeus
Torrington, the prettier of the two
widows.
Miss Percival turned away, with a
face the colour of new mahogany.
It's only a designing girl, that--that
mamma has employed at different
times," faltered Josephine, secretly re-
solving that the offending artizaness
should have su6h a talking to" this
evening, as she should not soon forget.
1 beg your pardon, Miss Percival,"
said Mr. D'Eresby, catching her words,
and colouring high with haughty anger.
"To avoid any more such awkward
mistakes, let me introduce to you all,
Miss Leslie, my future wife!"
Look at Joe! look at Joe!" croaked
Tom, with malicious glee. She looks
as if she'd been taking a quinine pill!"
But nobody had eyes for any one but
the pretty y,.it,:in' girl in the grey walk-
ing suit, whose blushes and dimples, as
she crept shyly to Mr. D'Eresby's out-
stretched arm, looked iunfijif.ly charm-
ing.
It was the romantic .truth. Mr. D'-
Eresby had lost his heart hopelessly
among the arabesques and labyrinths
designed by Mary L-:.i.:'s pencil; and
she had scarcely finished the patterns
for the new house, before Mr. D'Er .1:-.y
asked her to come and live in it. Tomn
had been her only confidant-a strange
one, yet not unappreciative.
"I don't deserve to be so li:ippl', Tom,"
said she, smiling, yet tearful, as she told
him.
"Yes, you do," said Tom, hugging
her like a young bear. "My eyes! what
wrLL Joe say when she hears it ?"
And Miss J.1i.'"-, iLstead of being
bride at the ;,i.u.i D'Eesby wedding,
was forced to descend into the very sec-
ondary position, of bridesmaid.
"Ain't it all jolly?" was Master Tnom's
comment.



Abstract of the Proceedings of the
Honorable House of Assembly.
_- __o-
WEDNESDAY, 12T'r SEPTEMBER, 1883.-
Mr. R. J. P. Darrell, presented a Report
from the Committee appointed to ex-
amine the Accounts of the Pilotage and
Li.ht HIouse Commissioners.
The following Messages from His Ex-
cellency the Governor :.
(No. 30.)
T. L. GALLWEY,
Lieut.-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform
the Honorable House of Assembly that
he has received instructions from the
Right Hlonble. the Secretary of State for
the Colonies to bring again before the
Legislature of these Islands a ...u1u. ,i.to
which Lord Kimberley called attention
in his despatch to General Lefroy of the
S~'h of April, 1P:; 1, wherein his Lord-
ship urged that Officers and Soldiers
stationed in the Colony should not be
subjected to import duties on articles of
ordinary consumption.
Lord Kimberley's despatch was com-
minunicated to the Legislature shortly af-
ter its receipt, but the House of Assem-
bly seems to have taken no action on it,
and the Governor forwards a co:,y of
the despatch, as Lord Derby rests the
claim for exemption on the grounds
therein set forth, which are that the In-
stitutions of the Colony, for the support
of which the revenue is raised, are not
kept up for the benefit of Imperial forces
quartered there, whose presence on the
other hand cannot but materially con-
tribute to the safety and prosperity of
the Islands.


On this account,- as Lord Kimberley
remarks, the principle of exempting Her
Majesty's troops from import duties on
all articles of ordinary consumption is


acknowledged throughout Her Majes-
ty's Colonial Possessions.
This exemption- Lord Derby consid-
ers should apply to all ranks of the Im-
perial forces, and it may be effected ei-
ther by admitting all articles imported
for the use of the Army and Navy duty
free, or, which is far 'more convenient,
by granting to them, or at least to the
land forces, an annual sum in commuta-
tion of the estimated amount of import
duties paid by them.
The Secretary of State expresses a
hope that in one way or another the
Legislature will see the equity of reliev-
ing Her Majesty's troops from a pay-
ment to which they ought not to be,
and in other Colonies are not, subject.
There can be no doubt that the large
sums expended annually in this Colony
by the Queen's forces benefit the Islands
very largely, and as little can it be ques-
tioned that a very large proportion of
the higher specific duties on Wine and
Malt liquor falls on the Officers of the
army on this station.
Her Majesty's Government has had
this subject under serious consideration,
and now calls the attention of the .Le-
gislature to it, in the hope that a way
may be found to relieve Her Miajesty's
forces from the Colonial import duties.
Public Buildings, 10th Sept., 1883.
(No. 31.).
T. L. GALLWEY,
Lieut.-General,
Governor and Commander-in-C chief.
In accordance with the request con-
tained in a message from the Honble.
House of Assembly, dated the 20th of
July, 1883, with reference to Public
Wharves in Warwick Parish the Gover-
nor now forwards the plans and esti-
mates which have been prepared by the
Colonial Surveyor.
The House having also requested that
the Board of Works should ascertain
whether" the property known as "Djar-
rei'"; 'iV iart" could be purchased for the
use of the Public, the Governor encloses
a copy of the Board's minute bearing on
this subject, and a letter written on-be-
half of the owners of the property, stat-
ing on what terms the transfer of the
property can be effected : a report of
the Coloni.li Surveyor on the general
condition of the wharf is also forwarded.
The Governor is of opinion that the
acquisition of this property will prove
of greater public utility, than the erec-
tion of an entirely new whiarf in close
proximity to the existing one which, as
will be observed from the Colonial Sur-
veyor's report, requires no very exten-
sive repairs to make it serviceable.
Public Buildings, 10th Sept., 1883.
Adjourned to Friday next.

FRIDAY, 14TH SEPTEMBER, 1883.-A
Message from His Excellency the Gov-
ernor :-
(No. 32.)
T. L. GALLEY.
Lieut-General,

The Governor has the honour to in-
form the Honorable House of Assembly
that the Official Visitors of the Lunatic
Asylum have reported the necessity of

such additions, have been informed by
the latter officer that a sum of one hun-
dred pounds will be required for 'the

tory patients being quite inadequate,
the Governor recommends the House to

PHYSZSIQAL DISTURBANCES.

The recent earthquake disaster in
the island of Java by which, it is said
one hundred thousand persons were
destroyed, is another of those dread-
ful events added to the long list of
public calamities that have occurred
during the present, year. Earth-
quakes, volcanic eruptions, and other
extraordinary disturbances of the
earth generally correspond with un-
-usual disturbances in the meteorolo-
gical condition of the .atmosphere,
and which by some scientists are sup-
posed to be the chief cause, ThI.r..
is io doubt but storms both by sea
and land are caused by some sudden
disarr ..gi-,.Lt in the aerial stratum,
occasioned by a coril e -~p nlig (.i:,iig.-.-
in the electric element. When the
air becomes highly charged with
electricity its normal condition is dis-
turbed : technically speaking, it [be-
comes foul a-ad necessitates a purging
as much as a bilious stomach does,
hence follows wind, rain, and thunder
storms, occasionally belching forth
the pent up forces in hurricanes and
floods. These generally arise from
local causes, and to a greater degree
in mountainous countries, where sud-
den changes of temperature are more
liable to occur on account of the meet-
ing and mingling of hot and cold
currents of air. But there are foreign
causes of greater magnitude, and
more powerful in their nature, such
as disturbances in the sun's electric
atmosphere, when a planet or planets
deviates towards the solar center be-
yond their usual orbit, such as has
occurred during the past three years.
Their influence thus excites the elec-
tric element of the sun causing it in
turn to discharge large quantities into
the earth's atmosphere. Besides these


planatory causes, dark spots periodi-
,cally appear upon the sun's disk, two
or more of which are telescopically
visible at the present time; and on
such occasions the sun appears to be
in an ii, it,-it-d -.i.'-, to such a degree
that a corresponding condition electri-
cally occurs iu the earth ;.i 4. :,'II, -
phere, during which fin .. aerial
qu..:0;; and physical disturbances
occur, which frequently ulminate in
storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, vol-
"anio eruptions, etc. TiU. unusual
phenomena of the sun, may phil-
osophically account for those (dead-
ful and destructive catastrophes which
havo occurred durIn. the present and
the preceding year. Happy ildee -
may the people of these'Islands feel
that they have so far been exempt.
from similar disasters to which many
countries have been ~ubj(ectod, The

lying and monotonous physical p'si-
ti.,i is not i:'... i1 i;.t,., the creation
of those terrible. .:r; .'., tb-. of Nature,;

During the Legislative debate on.
the new jail question tVi. T. L. Tuck-
or, member for Pembr 1:. said "they
had been !: iL.." about this i:J,! for
the last thirty years, and it was biM-h
time it was built." Further on, while
the new site was 1-"-,Ug discussed, he
r,-i! ,ihb.1, that the Government had
been trying a long time to get the jail
removed, and no doubt the Governor
thought as there were a large number
of new members in the House that
this would be a good time to make an-
other effort. This was the last chance,
and the Governor looked on the new
members as "a a.fi-.. '. hope."
.In reply the Attorney General said
he did not know what reason the hon-
orable member for Pembroke had for
using expressions, with reference to
the Gov:-ii,:.r, that could not be re-
garded as otherwise than( off-i-,_1,-'.
What reason had he for saying that
he Governor wished to use the new
members of the Assembly as a forlorn
hope, etc.
Mr. Tucker, in reply, said he was
-sorry if he had said anything about
the Governor that was likely to give
him offense; he had no such inten-
tion. But, perhaps what he had said
would apply better to the "Governor's
Advisers" than to the Governor him-
self, and he expected this was pretty
near the truth oi the matter.

AQUATIC EXEi't.SE..
Bermudian mariners are generally
credited with the honor of being in
practical experience and ,.ii-i.i.v
equal if not superior to those of any
other country. Bermudians appear
naturally to love aquatic exercise, and
from their early youth upiw:,n'-, to-
mature years make the ,.ry-t.i waters
of their Island home a nursury for
the development of that skill, strength
and bravery which form the consti-
tutional elements of the bold and
noble mariner of the deep," Per-
chance this natural tendency to take
to the water so readily" is hered,-
itarily transmitted from their fore-
fathers of those times when Bermuda
owned 150 vessels of her own. Aqua-
tic sports, as a rule, are congenial to
the mind of almost every Bermudian,
hence, the genial summer and autumn
seasons are characterized by a series
of sailing races of different sorts. But
the Annual Regettas appear to claim a
special interest,.for on sucn occasions
the "little world of our own" appears
to ,. all astir; the wheels of busi-
ness for the time being are .. -rt, ,
,"," offices, even the great Parli-
ment itself, are silent with closed
doors: and the very life of the to, v
seems to have been carried off by the
vast crowds that cluster in the -'-.'.-,
that smuround the scene of( '.::itiig
action. Such was the condition of af-
fairs last Wednesday during the grand
Annual Regatta whiich took place on
the Sound, west of Hamilton Harbor.


The day was excessively hot, and
the wind tolerably fair for the occasi-
on and the whole proceedings appear
to have passed off agreeably. The
Hamilton Amateur Brass Band was
in attendance and by their excellent
playing added considerably tb the
pleasures of the day. The folk wing

PROBABLY A MISTAl.. 1:
ST. GEOoGES, SEPT., 18th.
A pilot from the- eastward reports
that he boarded a large ship last night
making signals about 30 miles away.
She proved to be a large, old-fashioned
ship of about 4000 tons Register, called
the A.1" built by "Noah" and now
commanded by Capt. Jonathan of New
York, to which port ,i- is bound. The
captain uip"rt. a fine passage of 67 days
from Mount Arrarat, she is in Ballast
with a few hundred tons of fossil re-
mains and ice in bulk. The ship is un-
der the American fl i, as it will be re-
membered that she was purchased by
an American soon after her discovery,
for. the petroleum trade. Noah has
died. The pilot says that the vessel is
staunch and tight, and that nothing
more was required of him than to re-
port. This morning crowds were on
the hills to have a look at the old ship,
but only her masts could be discerned
to the northward, a long distance, per-
haps 60 miles off. Half of the town is
said to be cast down because the ship
did not require any assistance or repairs.
They say it would have been a whole
winter's job, etc.

On entering old St. Georges and look-
ing South across the harbor the eye is
attracted to Whites' 1-i.,i,l. the selected
Dep6t for Inflamiable Goods. The Is-
land, formerly an almost barren rock,
with a few stunted cedars, has in a few
weeks been transformed into something
like a fortification. The sappers and
miners chisel and saw and spade and
wheel have chimed away merrily, and
the dead have had to make room for
the living. Thirty human remains have
been found, who for generations have
quietly slept in their stony beds, and
who each have furnished life and sup-
port to a tree, the roots of which gradu-
ally took joint possession with the first
occupants and eventually i]l.-.l the lar-
ger part of their allotted graves, until
crippled for more space it ceased to
expand below and above ; but stood a si-
lent witness of everlasting life and a
never ceasing (.'Inm, of matter and ma-
terial. Through one skull's evesocket a
root had searched, and grown and filled
the entire skull. Nothing but bones, a


few brass button:, and one "silver
charm"' have been discovered ; one ,aul-
ton has the crown imi,''.-..~.t upon it,
and il. ii..' from the absence of coffins,
and of the leg and arm .tones of a second
person being placed across the body of
the first, the report must 'be accepted
that the bodies were from the Frigate
: it: which ship careened and fell
over on this island, while undergoing
i- killing and iiI.:iL.di iiI a large
number of sailors and workmen. The
remains found have been carefully gath-
ered and have been re-interred in ano-
ther part of the island.
Soon the v.,:li of the warehouse will
go up-we hear that the roof of iron is
e'. i.i.,:.1 by our new Liverpool line
steamer-and when ,the building is fin-
ished it will certainly give a stately and
business-like appearance and be an or-
nament to the .harbor.

New clock towers, fine buildings and
increased salaries are a sign of flush
times ; but they .i. qit;II..- enterprises and
general improvements of our principal
i, 1 i; -; to support them and to conti-
nue to support them. It is therefore
necessary to extend a.'.. ll. w up any
commercial advantages nature has be-
stowed t',,p, our surrunfThl:i: and
when we spend one pound on fine
structures two pounds should be ',tc.1
for improving our harbors amd their
channels. If this is not attended to,
our harbors soon will shrink away, and
it is not to be lost sight of that ships
and steamers are growing longer and
deeper every -..':Nr. and that steamships
of 300 feet length of keel, di ,i..h-g 20
feet of '.-t', r. are common, and no long-
er exceptions. So when the the Hon.
M. C. P's vote away the Peoples' mo-
ney, let them bear in ,,nili, tL:, we must
either improve our L:', ...r. or build
new ones on the liorth side, and I:. .' a

OUR ROADS.
Every year a certain sum--based, I
presume, upon the report of thIe gen-
tleman who draws the salary of the
Colonial Surveyor-is voted by the
House of Assembly to be e, :.'..,;,,
upon the roads of the Colony. How
is that money spent, and with what
results? In former years, under the
road Commissioners, by a system of
contracts for certain districts, the
roads were kept inm repair at a mini-
mum expense. Afterwards all the
roads were under the supervision of
a Road Inspector. Still later, the
office of Colonial Survevor was cre-
ated, in which was merged the offices
of Inspector of Public Works and In-
spector of Roads, and that such Sur-
veyor might have full knowledge of
all matters pertaining thereto, he was
also aipj"'iit.,d Clerk to the Board.of
Works. So far, so good. The office


was first filled by Mr. N-es, who
proved to be a most energetic, pains-
taking and faithful officer; he die i
and the country has had reason to
mourn its loss. There was some dif-
ficulty in getting the office filled, as
no Bermudian who ,f'(,.: 1 came up
to the standard pirtt1, and one had
to be imported from England to fill
the office. As an architect, the pre-
sent Colonial Surveyor is evidently
weak, as one has come out from Scot-
land, to plan the new Government
house, who has probably gained ex-
perience in the quality of o ur build-
ing material, from' the crumbling col-
umns of Trinity Church. As to his
knowledge of Civil Engineering, we
have no evidence, and therefore give
him the benefit of the doubt. But
our Roads! The main or principal
roads are kept in fair order, but at
what expense ? Here and there we
find gangs of men at work, who clean
up the sides of the road-cleanest
where there is the most shade-all
the road drift being carted away, then
the roads are dug up in h..i.-'.--'


vicinity of ale shops preferred-and
"jail nuts" carted, spread, and left
without covering, to ruin horses' feet,
'.l,1 to destroy fhe shoes of pedestri-
ans. With regard to "jail nuts" there
seems to be no economy used in their
use or abuse, for l iny are ofth spread
in places i.ri- they.are not wal:itd.
and in : !Ii:t.! inI:., more than is requir-
ed; everything being left :to the judg-
ment of iih.- overseer of the :garig.
Does the Colonial Surveyor ever visit
the places where tli. roads are be'in,-
repaired? Does he ever see for him-
--.If .how many me'n are -employed,
and whether a :corr,.ct account is ren-
di:r'. of their time, or does he simply
base Ilis dm--mand upon the Public
Ch..*.st .pua the tiue list furnished by
some iTr':.sp'hi-ib.l overseer, who may
or may not be honest ? It may not
be the duty of the Colonial Survey-
or" to inspect the roads, and to look
after the men whu repair them, (?)
but the t:r'<.;i.tyi- would feel better
satisfied if they knew that their inter-
ests in this pl:-'oicular were protected,
than they do now, when in addition
to the rn.ihli manner in which the
roads are often mended, there seems,
to be grounds for supposing that the
Public moqiey, in this matter, is bci;,i,
recklessly squandered.

Tih "Presbyterian Witness" of

ed the recent meeting of the Wesley-
an Conference in England, and ex-
pressed himself strongly in favor of
the Temperance movement.
A Canadian paper says:--A man liv-
ing in New Edinburgh a few evenings
since, while under the influence of li-
quor, purchased a pistol and threatened
to kill his wife. lie took some of his
furniture out to sell, and chased his
wife and three small children to the
woods. Some of the neighbors sent in-
to the city for County Constable M c-
Kenzie, who went to the scene and
found the family as stated, the husband
being still intoxicated, and in a violent
state of excitement. The offender is
well educated and intelligent. At one
time, it is said, he was an English
Church clergyman, and he now holds a
position in the Civil Service.
TURKS' ISLANDS.
Matters appear to be daily growing worse
at TurksIsland. With the low price and
slow demand for salt and the excessive tariff
the condition of the people and the business
of the Islands are assuming a serious aspect,
threatening financial ruin and an almost to.-
tal depopulation ; and yet the haughty
aristocratic and cruel crown colony govern-
ment stands aloof and with a humorous
grin exclaims Turn the screws a little
tighter." The following from the ROYAL
STANDARD of Grand Turk gives some idea of
the existing state of things :-
Fiom the appearance of the weather,
our rainy season is at hand anmd we have al-
lready had some heavy squalls, which, with
the strong breeze thit is blowing, will dam-
age the made up Salt very much. In short


we think our proprietors are indifferent as
to the rain ; we have an abundant supply
on hand, more than we can possibly sell be-
foro thle season of 1884 commences ; the
low prices and poor prospect makes it all
the more Iiscouragiug. Prices, unchang-
ed--no demand,"
The intelligence of the last Mail. in re-
spect to the foreign Salt market in the
United States, is of the most discouraging
character. There does not seem to be any
hope of the future, wa-ranting a better coin-
dition of things. Were this condition of
things a mere vicissitude more or less" com-
mon to all commercial matters, it would
have a very different aspect. But it is not
so ; it is normal and unchangeable in its
character and subject to no chapter of ac-
cidents; susceptible of a reasonable com-
prehension by the wit of man. We have
but one staple andl that staple is not simply
unretunmerative, but it is getting absolutely
unsaleable, consistently with a continuous
cultivation of the natural resources which
hitherto afforded it. Human existence,
here, has been for several years more or
loss protracted by a moderate sale of Fish
aroundd Salt for the British North American
Provinces. There is no reason to believe
that moderate sale is capable of expansion
of sufficient importance to fill the void oc-
casioned by tihe diminished exportation at


a paying price of course Salt. So, where
shall we be in a few ii me years ? Certainly
in a much less prosperous condition than at
present, for the evil here -,h.i1-i.ii. ,i of is
of an infinite duration and of overwhelming
results; that evil, w- need s(dcreoly repeat,
is tile aniihilating competition, in the Ameri-
can market, with our only staple, with the
millions of bushels of Salt carried there
from the South of Europe and sold at rates
with which we can have no pretension to
contend with. We append an extract of a
letter from a correspondent in the United
States to a party here largely engaged in
thbi salt business :"
"' We note your authority to sell Salt at
market plates, but our market (N. Y.) just
now, is choked with Mediterranean Silt.
No one seems anxious to purchase. F--,
has brought here and sold a Chicago pork
packer (the largest in the U. S.) say 250.000
bushels of Mediterranean and what profit do
you suppose ? NONE All he made and is
making out of it is the wharfage of the ves-
sels at his docks. How do you suppose
Tnrks Island or any other small place will
back against that kind of trade? St. Mar-,
tin's Salt sold .,fl. -.1, in Boston, last week, at
20 cents per bushel-freight 11 cents, duty
6 cents, leaving only 3 cents for cost of
Salt, insurance, commission, &c. Can you
compete with that ?' "
"If the Government of Jamaica-of
which we are a d'.. i.,"'Ln. ii-' in the most
cruel sense of the word-were to take the
above facts with their inevitable conclusions
into their serious ..'i.1. .,ti.'t n. with a view
of rescuing these i4lit,l., fr',_.u a ruin which
is more than impending, something might
be done of an ..n:' i..r., i'g effect ; what
that something may be, we have scarcely the
patience to say at this moment. It has been
so often said that a repetition is not neces-
sary for their information. Certain it is that
a surplus revenne-arisipg from excessive
tariff rates-to be sent to England for a safe
investment, is not one of the means calcu-
lated to rescue as from ruin.

HUMOROUS ITEMS,

To keep apples from decaying, put
them in a cool place-where there is
,a large family of children.
Lampton thinks, "the man who
white-washes ceilings is in a sublime
business." This is a kiln-joke.
The man who originated the saying
Hurry is the mark of a weak mind,"
never was chased by a bulldog.
It is supposed that when a woman
has all the pin money she wants, she
has attained the pin-nickel of her hap-
piness,
When a man does us a kindness we
call him a brick, and when he does us
an unkindness we want to hit him
with one.
The man who got drunk in the mar-
ble yard explained to the judge be-
fore whom he was taken that he had
been on a monumental bust.
Grandma-" Yes, children, when I
was young as you are I used to walk
in my sleep." Tommy (eagerly)-,
"Say, grta'ma, what time did you
make ?"
Pants for $5 ?" said a seedy-look-
ing man, reading the sign in the win-
dow of a clothing store he was pass-
ing. So do I; I never panted so
for $5 in my life."
"The Sioux are not contagious,"
said an old frontierman. What do
you mean ?" asked a bystander. I
mean that they are hard to catch,"
was the reply.]
Love may be blind, as they say,
Sbut eit can be noticed that in all the
records of the ages it has never kiss-
ed the girl's mother by mistake when
it reached after the girl.
Lady (to rheumatic old woman)-
"I am sorry you should suffer so;
you should try galvanism. Old wo-
man-" Thank you kindly, mum; be
I to swaller it or .rub it in ?"
Careful house-wife (lifting a shoe
from the soup-tureen)-" La, who'd
'a thought baby's shoe would.turn up
in the soup ? But I knew it wasn't
lost. I never lose anything."
One of the most delicate bits of hu-
mor in the Bible is Hosea's descrip-
tion of Ephraim as a cake not turn-
ed." The prophet didn't want to hurt
Ephraim's feelings by calling him
half-baked.
An urchin of eight was called to the
blackboard to write out words, and
spelled quite short ones very badly.
""How could you have been so care-
less, and 'on examination day, too ?"
asked the teacher. "Is it zamination
day? Weally if I'd known it's zami-
ation day I'd done better; for I took
letters'ea.siest to make," rejoined he.

A Derangement of the

Liver
THE CAUSE OF DISEASE IN THE

STOMACH, KIDNEYS

IANid Nervous System,
-o ----
Below will be found a brief Sum-
mary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before tlhe Eclectic College of Medicine by

01. J, HAM EL
TFHE LIVER has been known ns the
great BLooD-MAKER and BLOOn-
PuRIFIER of the Circulation. From ius
size and spongy structure, it plays ,- most
important part in the animal economy, as
regards a .nsiollil:,tII and nirition. Food
taken in tle month and acted Amon by the
digestive organs or the stomach is con-
verted into Glucose and Peptone, and in
these forms enters the Prtal vein. lHere,
by the action of the liver, these substances
are converted into a form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by a large vein, called
thie Hepatic 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 tue 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
the epigastrium.
2. Distentioh of the stomach
and bowels by wind.
3. Heart-burn.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
after meals.
