most doubled up by the greater numbers of the
Turks. Every effort was made to retrieve the dis-

The third and last of Dr. Foggo's delightful
course of lectures on Shakspeare, was delivered be-
fore a large and attentive audience on Thursday
evening. The subject on which the Doctor enter-
tained his hearers was Comedy in Shakspeare and
was handled with a vigor and spirit that all could
not fail to appreciate. We do not think it necessary
to dwell at length on the comic traits of character
chosen as types of illustration, because we feel sure
that the lovers of Shakspeare are all too familiar
with the rollicking humour of Jack Falstaff, and
the dry and pungent wit of Touchstone, to call for
any reproduction of their wit in our columns. We
feel it our duty nevertheless to tender the thanks of
the community to Dr. Foggo for the time and
trouble he has thus generously devoted to our
amusement and instruction, and we cannot help ex-
pressing a regret, that we have not oftener at our
command such a feast of reason and flow of soul'.
The money obtained by these lectures has been
devoted to The Church Fund,' the St. George's
Sunday School, and a third object in connection
with the Church which was not further specified by
the Lecturer.
At the conclusion Dr. Foggo very flatteringly
thanked his audience for their attention and re-
marked that though he had often had the honor of
addressing larger assemblies yet never had he felt
more pleasure than he had had in addressing this
audience composed of his fellow countrymen.

We understand that the late Mr. Thomas Blay,
of Somerset, has left a magnificent bequest to the
Bermuda Church Society, to be paid at the death
of his sister, who survives him.
The amount is invested in the 8 per cent Consols,
and, if report speaks true, it is 500.

While mentioning the above fact it is not out of
place to add that the late Honble. Joseph Wood,
who was during life a bountiful benefactor to Tri-
nity Church, by his Will directed his Executors to
sell out $1,000 of his Philadelphia City stock, and
apply the proceeds towards the completion of Tri-
nity Church. Mr. Wood has been dead some 8
years, and the accumulations of dividends on this
stock (which has always, we believe, been valuable)
must by this time amount to a handsome sum in ad.
edition to the original bequest.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAr Sni,-Will you kindly afford me space in
the columns of the Royal Gazette to state that the
Secretaries of the Bermuda Church Society have
received a most gratifying letter from a Bermudian
Gentleman resident abroad, but deeply interested
in the Church in these Islands. The letter con-
tained a most generous contribution to the Endow-
ment Fund of the Society. A bill for 100 was en-
closed, and a further promise to the following ef-
fect: "Whenever the Fund reaches 1,900 I will
add another 100, and in the same way will add the
last 100 to each succeeding 1,000 till the total
reaches 5000: by which time my subscription will
amount to 500, when it will cease." He adds a
hope that this plan may induce others to do the
same, and so accumulate the required amount
more rapidly."
The name of one gentleman already appears in
our printed Report as having made a similar gene-
rous donation (500) to the Endowment Fund, and
there are several others to whom the Society is in-
debted for large and handsome subscriptions.
But are there not many members of the Church
in Bermuda who could follow these noble examples?
Are there not many who as yet have hardly given
the Society a thought, nor realized the necessity for
its existence and efforts, nor felt the obligation of
making some sacrifice to hasten the attainment of
the important object it has in view, namely, to be
prepared as far as possible to meet the heavy de-
mand which will be laid upon the members of the
Church of England here whenever the Legislative
grant shall cease.
The amount of the ordinary subscription for
membership was fixed very low, namely, ten shil-
lings annually, with the object of placing it within
the power of nearly every one attached to the
Church to become a member of the Society, but
not at all with the wish that the generality of
person should limit their annual contribution to
that small sum.
Are there not many who could without any
great difficulty present a donation of 20 to the
Society ? and perhaps even more who could join
in a plan which would very largely increase the
funds of the Society without any serious sacrifice
on their own part; that is to say, a promise to
pay 10 annually for the next five years. If one
hundred persons would enter into this agreement
the Society might rely upon raising from this
source alone 5,000 in the next five years.
Moreover it was not designed to limit the annual
subscription to one member in each family; the re-
ceipts of the Society might be very largely in-
creased by each member of all families attached to
the Church of England, contributing some sum,
however small, when not able to offer the usual

The Revd. C. M. Tyler, Wesleyan Minister, hav-
ing completed his term of services at Bermuda,
leaves in the next steamer to New York on his way
to England. During the four years this gentleman
has been among us he has won the respect-and
esteem of all classes of the community who have
come within the range of his ministrations. A few
evenings ago a large meeting assembled in Somer.
set Wesleyan Church to do him honour by present.
ing him with an Address, accompanied by a purse
of money. The Address was as follows:-
To the REV. C. M. TrL, Wesleyan 8 Minister, Ber.
REVEREND ANmD DEAR SmI,-We, the undersigned.
representing the churches usually worshipping at
Somerset, Port Royal, and Ireland Island, Ber-
muda, being desirous of expressing to you our
gratitude for your faithful labors amongsVt us
during the past four years, beg of you, on this the
eve of your departure from our shores, to accept
this purse and its contents, which we now offer to
you. In this humble offering we' desire- to mark
our high appreciation of your earnest and self.
denying efforts for the promotion of the best in-
terests and spiritual welfare of all those with whom
you have come in contact.
We hope and pray that the great Head of the
Church may continue to own and bless yowin your
ministry wherever you may be placed, and to spare
you for a long and useful life in His Service.

It was signed by representatives of the three
Churches over which Mr. Tyler presided,'and also
by Wesleyans of the Army, Navy and Civil Service
at this station.
The presentation was made by the senior mem-
ber of Somerset Church, who in doing so spoke in
high terms of the labours of Mr. Tyler and the great
good he had accomplished. During his ministry
large accessions had been made to the number of
church members. At Somerset this had been so
great as to call for an enlargement of the church
building. Mr. Tyler knew that to do this would
entail much additional labour and anxiety upon

him; but he did not shrink from the work; with
characteristic energy he set about it, and they re-
joiced with him in now seeing that work accom-
plished. The speaker concluded by assuring Mr.
Tyler that in leaving Bermuda he would take with
him the esteem and prayerful regard of .not only
those who belonged to the Wesleyan Communion,
but also of many connected with other Christian
denominations. Short speeches, full of warm af-
fection towards Mr. Tyler,'were also delivered by
gentlemen from Port Royal and the Dockyard.
Mr. Tyler on rising to reply was evidently labor-
ing under deep emotion. He said the act of kind.
ness and honour done him that evening, had come
upon him entirely by surprise. He most gratefully
accepted these expressions of their esteem, although
not required to assure him of their love and affect.
tion, because they had never lacked manifestations
of it since his first coming among them. He had
sought not theirs, but them, and hoped that all those
to whom he had ministered would stand fast in the
professions they had made and be his crown of re-
joicing in the presence Qf Our Lord Jesus Christ at
his coming.
On the following evening the children of the
Sunday School presented Mr. Tyler.with a beauti.
ful casket made from native woods.


The 11th Co. R. E. Amateur Dramatic Club gave
four capital performances in the Garrison Theatre
under the distinguished patronage of His Honor
Col. W. L. Morrison, R.E., Ladies and Officers of
the Corps and Garrison. The Drama Not Guil-
ty" is of that powerfully interesting nature such
as one seldom sees now-a.days; 'tis a good story,
and was illustrated by the above Club in fine style,
showing them to be amateurs of a very highorder.
The double character of Silas Jarrett and Col. Sir
Ormond Willoughby was played in a spirited and
effective manner by W. Coulter, who, we under-
stand, undertook'the part but some few hours before
the performance; he deserves great credit for his
successful rendering of this very difficult part.
Mr. Trumble, a lawyer (H. Barnes), both looked
and played his part in a capital, easy and off-hand
manner. Joe Triggs (T. Burns) was very amusing
in his scenes with Polly Dobbs (W. Church), a
buxom maiden and his intended wife; but more
especially in the after part of the drama, where he
becomes jealous of Jack Snipe (E. Hallett), a re-
formed thief, who must also be commended-for the
manner in which he in some parts made the audi.
ence laugh ait some droll speech, whilst his explan-
ation of how he became a thief and the struggles
he had trying to keep honest were very affecting.
Robert Arnold (D. Gordon), one of the victims of
Silas Jarrett, and who we saw at first dn'honest,
hard-working locksmith, next a convicted feloA
working in the quarries at Dartmoor, < but from
where he escapes; then in India fighting with the
rebels; lastly back again in England, where he de.
ounces the sham Sir Ormond Willoughby,. Was
played in this amateur's usual masterly style. Mr.
St. Clair (P. R. Macdonald), a wealthy young gen.
tleman, who becomes a benefactor to Robert Ar..
nold, was not only gentlemanly in manner, but
seemed to have that easy, graceful tone about him
which made his part contrast wonderfully with the
whole of the other characters. errantt Wattles
(D. 01phert) was very good as the free-hearted,'
smart, brave and dashing Recruiting Sergeant.
Isaac Viddler (E. George), old in years and in crime.

We shall be thankful for the kind cooperation of
all according to their ability.
In a few weeks the Society will have been in
operation a year, and then the second subscriptions
will be due.
The Clergy will gladly receive the contributions
of their Parishioners, both of those whose names
appear as members in the list appended to the Re-
port recently published, and of any who may desire
now at the commencement of our second year to
join the Society.
It will afford us encouragement also to be in-
formed of some who may feel themselves able and
willing by a special donation to assist the Society
the sooner to profit by the liberal proposal re-
corded in the beginning of this letter.
Yours very faithfully,
Rectory, Paget, August 6th, 1877.



g* The roads generally throughout the Island
are in a most wretched condition. This is conse-
quent on the recent heavy rains and the want of ne-
cessary periodical repairs. A portion of the road
between this Town and the Parish Church, for about
80 yards east of Mr. James' land, was on Sunday
last entirely submerged in the early morning hours,
as it had been on several occasions during the
previous week, and even between 10 and 11
s.m. persons wanting to pass were compelled to
walk through mud some inches in depth, to walk
on the wall, which was dangerous and frem which
one lady fell, or to scramble over Mr. James' wall
and .trespass on his property, which we had to do
on returning from a walk at about o'clock on that
morning. How long is this state of things to con-
tinue ?

PoIsoNioN.-Two young Gentlemen, residents of
Somerset, but doing business at Ireland Island,
partook of, for luncheon, at their Store on Tuesday
last, a portion of a can of beef-which on being opened
appeared to be sound and in a wholesome condition.
-.Xot long afterwards however they were seriously
attacked with vomitting, &c., and it was at once
pronounced by the Medical Gentlemen who were
promptly in attendance, that they had both taken
largely of a deadly poison. Means were at once
used to counteract its effect on the system, and by
the evening the young Gentlemen were deemed to
be so far restored as to justify their removal to
their homes. A Medical Gentleman had, however,
to be with them during the night, and for two or
three days they were confined to their beds. We
are gratified at being able to say that they are now
both recovered from the poisoning, which so
narrowly proved'fatal to them. It is believed that
a portion of the acid used in soldering the can, had
got into and impregnated the contents.
Since the above was in type, our attention has
been directed to the following paragraph which ap-
peared in the New York Heraldof the2nd instant:-
i" A FAMILT POIsoNED.-Mr. C. B. Rugg, of No.
300 Second street, Jersey City, as well as his wife,
brother-in-law and two boarders, were poisoned on
Tuesday night by eating canned corn beef. The
meat was purchased at a grocery store at the cor-
ner of Second and Cole street. It was used for
supper and abundantly partaken of by the family.
A burning sensation seized the parties in the even.

The Right Rev. James B. Kelly, Bishop of New-
foundland, who left that place for Liverpool on the
24th ult., has, by his resignation of the see, added
another to the already long list of colonial bishops
who are now serving English benefices as parochial
clergymen. Dr. Kelly was consecrated as coadju-
tor bishop to the late Bishop Feild in 1867, but he
had worked previously in the diocese where he has
been resident, with but a slight intermission, for
thirteen years, during which he has served the offi-
ces of incumbent of the cathedral, archdeacon, coad-
jutor bishop, and lastly for a few months as bishop,
a post to which he was appointed on Dr. Feild's
death.-Rock, 6th July, 1877.

LoNDox;, August 2.-A correspondent telegraph-
ing fromn Bulgareni, fifteen miles east of Plevna,
gives a Betailed account of the fighting of Monday.
The TOAkih force was estimated at 50,000. They
occupied a series of positions which are naturally
.trongjand also artificially fortified in every avail.
able spot, forming a horseshoe in front of Plevna,
with Ipothl flanks resting on the river Vid. The
Russiain force.consisted of the Ninth army corps,
under lGebieral Brudener; the Thirtieth division
and 'libirlietb brigade of the Second corps, un-
dep..brince Schackesky, with three brigades of cav-
alry and 160 guns.
The .Russian Plan of Attack.-It was arranged
tflat General Krudener should attack the Turkish
centre at Grivica and the northern flank of the in-
trenchld position over Bahova, while Schackesky
attacked Radizvo, and General Skobeleff, Jr., held
in check a strong Turkish force at Locca, which
was the extremity of the Turkish line.
Stubborn TurAish Defence.-G en. Krudener began
itibattle about halt-past nine o'clock. After a
long bombardment be succeeded in silencing the
Turkish cannon at Grivics, but could never expel
the infantry from the earthworks. He spent the
whole afternoon unavailingly force
the northern flank of the Turkish position, desist-
Ing alter dark without having, gained anything
material and having himself suffered considerable
loss. 4
A Turkish Earthwork Carried.-Prince Schack-
eqky about noon carried Radizevo, and, planting
(our batteries on a ridge beyond, bombarded the
nearest Turkish position, which was an earthwork
armed with cannon in front of an intrenched vill-
age. After an hour's cannonade he silenced the
Turkish guns, and his infantry, after a long and
bloody.congest, carried the earthwork and'village.
Second. Turkish Position Captured.-The secondd
Turkish position, consisting of a redout and a series
intrenched vine yards strongly held, was then at.
: tacked and ultimately carried, but with a terrible
effort and very severe loss, owing to the heavy Tur-
klhartillery are.

Useless Successes.-The Russians, moreover, were
unable to utilize the captured position. About
four o'clock a reserve brigade was brought up and
an attack made on the positions immediately cov-
ering Plevna. The attack continued till nearly
sunset. The Turkish infantry was in great force
in a continuous line under shelter of trenches.
No Impression Made.-Despite the most stubborn
efforts, no impression could be made upon that line.
Two companies of Russian infantry did work round
to the right of the Turkish trenches and entered
the town of, Plevna, but it was impossible to hold
it. The Russian batteries pushed boldly forward
into the position first taken to attempt to keep
down the Turkish cannonade, which was crushing
into the infantry in the open field, but they were
compelled soon to evacuate the hazardous spot.
The Turks Assume the Offensive.-At sundown the
Turks made a continuous forward movement and
reoccupied their second position; The Russian in-
fantry made a succession of desperate stands and
died like heroes. The Turks gradually retook
everything they had lost. The fighting lasted long
after nightfall.
Bashi-Bazouks Kill the Wounded.--With the
darkness the baohi-bazouks took possession of the
battlefield and slew all the wounded. The Rus-
sians held the heights above Radizevo, but the
bashi-bazouks worked around to their rear and fell
on the wounded collected in the village of Radizevo.
The Russians Retreat.-A retreat was compelled
in this direction, namely Bulgareni, and the con-
tingencies arising from this untoward battle are of
ominious significance.
Turkish Claim the Victory.-A despatch dated
Pera, July 31, midnight, says :-" Intelligence just
received here from Osman Pacha announces a
great Turkish victory. The enemy were completely
routed after two days severe fighting, with a loss of
8,000 killed and 16,000 wounded. The Turks
captured a great amount of arms and ammunition.
The Turkish casualties were comparatively small,
owing to the fact that they fought upon the defen-
Can the Turks Effect a Junction ?-Out of the nu-
merous conflicting reports from Bulgaria the past
week the one substantial and very important fact is
gleaned that the Turks have abandoned their Fabi-
an policy and are making a serious attack on the
flanks of the Russians. The latter have been
forced to suspend aggressive movements and con-
centrate on their central line from Bjela to Tirnova.
As pointed out by a Vienna correspondent, if Os-
man Pacha and Lieutenant General Mehemet Ali
succeed in joining hands between Tirnova and
the Balkan passes it will be fatal to the Russians
south of the mountains.
Only One-Sided Reports.-Thus far only Turkish
reports of fighting have been received since the first
battle at Plevna, but it is surmised, with strong ap-
pearance of probability, that if the Russians were
faring prosperously we would have official bulletins
from St. Petersburg.
Russian Scouts Falling Back.-A Rasgrad des-
patch reporting the retreat of the Cossacks toward

An English Cabinet Explanation.-In the House
of Commons yesterday afternoon Sir Stafford North-
cote, Chancellor of the Exchequer, in reply to a
question by Mr. Whalley, liberal member for Pet.
ersborough, said :-" It will not be necessary to
submit any special vote on account of the recent
despatch of troops and the fleet to the East. The
expense is very small. In fact, it Is very doubtful
i whether it will be necessary at all to ask for any
further sum in the course of the year. It is not
necessary at present.
LONDON, August 2-The Financier says: "Though
the settlement just arranged has been the smallest
known for a very long time, two members failed,
and there is plenty of evidence on every side that
the Stock Exchange as a body is suffering from in-
1 anition to a degree scarcely ever known before."
Election Biot.-Election riots' took place at
Grimsby last night. A mob of 6,000 wrecked the
hotel where Mr. Watkin, who was elected to Parlia-
ment yesterday, stayed, and tried to burn it. Three
persons were injured. Troops were sent to the
scene from Sheffield. Twelve rioters were arrested.
The Racefor the Goodwood Cup.-At Goodwood
to-day the race for the Goodwood Cupgwas won by
Mr. F. G. Hobson's Hampton.
A Berlin despatch to the Times states that two
Turkish monitors have been captured at Nikopolis,
nearly ready for service. Sailors have arrived from
St. Petersburg. The Grand Duke Alexis will com-
Smand the Danube flotilla.

Preparing for the Fray.-Inside the armory all
was busy with quiet preparation. The companies

were being formed and each man furnished with
twenty rounds of ammunition. The members ap-
peared calm and collected notwithstanding the as-
saults made upon the outside. At fifteen minutes
past eight P.M.. the preparations being completed,
the order was given for Company I, to leave the ar-
mory, the police having been previously notified to
open the doors and then stand aside. The door
was only wide enough to admit of the passage
of two men at once, and at their appearance a per.
fect shower of missiles fell upon them, followed by
the more deadly contents of revolvers another
small arms. The utmost confusion ensued. The
militia seemed paralyzed, but regaining their
composure, marched out into the street. As they
formed in lined the first rank drew up their rifles
and poured a deadly volley into the mass of hu-
manity in front of them, which scattered the crowd
temporarily in every direction.
The Mob Rally.-A few moments delay on the
part of the troops enabled the mob to return to the
field from the alleys and cellars where they had
taken refuge, and a second attack was made, not
only with bricks and stones, but with numerous
small arms. This was repulsed, as had been the
former. The houses in the neighborhood were
pierced with bullets, and the windows for a square
shattered ; the street was strewn with debris, and
the dead and wounded were left weltering in blood
where they fell. All this time the troops had mov-
ed but a few yards from the armory and the crowd
was constantly augmented by people hurrying to
the spot in search of friends whom they feared
might be in the melee, news of which had reached
all sections of the city in an incredible short time.
After leaving the armory the soldiers marched up
Gay to Baltimore street, followed, in fact surround-
ed, by the howling mob. On turning into Balti-
more street they were again attacked. It was near-
ly nine o'clock and the streets were thronged with
people in the pursuit of their legitimate business.
These were swayed aside by the throng surround-
ing the troops, and every moment or two a flash of
musketry and the rattling of a volley added to the
wild tumult of the scene.
Desperate Fighting.-Between Gay and Calvert,
on Baltimore street, in which location all the news-
paper offices are situated, the troops actually fought
their way step by atep, and the battle did not cease
until the depot had been reached.

British Legation, Lima,
9th June, 1877.
I have the honor to inform your Excellency that
the Vice-Admiral, Commander-in-Chief of Her Ma-
jesty's naval forces on the Pacific station, has request-
ed me to inform the Peruvian Government that in
consequence of the monitor Huascar having com-
mitted certain hostile acts against British ships and
property, the Vice-Adrniiral felt compelled to inter-

The Vice-Admiral says that in taking this step
he was animated solely by a sesee of his duty, which
required him to protect the ships and interests of
peaceable and hl::v-aibldi:" British subjects, and he
wishes me to ex-lain to the Government of Peru
that he has neither acted in favor of it nor against it,
it being his imperative duty to observe a strict and
impartial neutrality, and not to intervene in any way
whatever in the affairs of Peru.
Your Exceilency will please to accept the assurance
of my high consideration.
(Signed) J. R. GRAHAM.
To his Excellency Senor J. C. Julio RQspigliosi,
Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
Lima, 9th June, 1877.
I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of our
Excellency's estimable note No. 28, of to-day's date,
in which, at the request of the Vice-Admiral and
Commander-in-Chief of the Naval Forces of Her
Britannic Majesty on the Pacific Station, you inform
me that his action towards the national monitor Hu-
ascar resulted solely as the consequence of acts com-
mitted by the said monitor, which the Vice-Admiral
considered as hostile to vessels and property belong-
ing to British subjects.
The Vice-Admiral thus assures the Peruvian Gov-
ernment, through the dignified medium of your Ex-
cellency, that, he was not animated by a desire to
interfere in the affairs of Peru, in reference to which
he observes the strictest neutrality.
This affair being one of extreme gravity, I limit
myself for the present to acknowledging the receipt
of your Excellency's communication, assuring you of
my most distinguished consideration.
To the Honorable J. R. Graham, H. B. M.'s
Representative in Peru.

is a translation of the circular of the Minister of For-
eign Affairs, to the diplomatic agents and consuls of
Peru abroad:

i1m)l;aion of the immunity of her territory, aggravated
by the notable eact of there having existed the inten-
tion of applying a torpedo, on the night after the
combat, with a view of blowing up the HIuascar that
had quitted ihe bay but a few moments previously.
Although, the honorable and respected representa-
tive of Her Britannic Majesty has hastened, at the re-
quest of Vice-Admiral l)eHorsev to address the official
letter, of which I enclose an authenticated copy to this
Government, all the circumstances of thle case reveal
the serious responsibility its author has incurred, whe-
ther considered as a violation against the sovereignty
of Peru, as offending' against the immunity of
her territory, or finally, as an outrage committed
against the honor of the Republic.
Under these circumstances the Government has de-
termined shortly to comply with its duty to demand
with that firmness which right inspires, ot Her Bri-
tannic Majesty, such reparation as is due to the offend-
ed, convinced that the old spirit of rectitude which
characterizes the conduct of Her Britannic Majesty's
Government in international affairs, will oblige Her
Majesty to accord it to Peru, which until this moment
has endeavoured to cultivate the closest and most cor-
dial relations with the United Kingdom.
Government is further persuaded that in its just
cause it will be supported by the sympathies of the
British people, who will not regard with indifference
irregular proceedings of an old official in the British
Navy, and who will, therefore, contribute towards in-
ducing Her Britannic Majesty to do us entire justice,
giving to Peru such satisfaction as she is entitled to.
In default of which a sad precedent would be estab-
lished against the sovereignty, integrity and honor
of South American States, thus establishing the supe-
riority of force against right.
These are the facts and sentiments which *
* will bear in mindl when transmitting the in-
formation that may be solicited bhv *
that distinguished Gov(rnment. GOD preserve *
of slavery in Cuba is an object which cannot fail to
enlist the good will of every friend of humanity.
But much of the agitation in its behalf in this coun-
try is not wise or unselfish. We have in this city
an association of Americans and Cubans-the for-
mer mostly volunteer officers in our civil war-
called the Cuban League. It is no mystery that
this body works hand and glove with the Cuban in-
surgents, and assists them materially and morally
in many ways. If the wish of the Cuban League
could be gratified, the United States would recog-
nize the "Republic of Cuba" and be at war with
Spain in thirty days. We have faith enough in the
military and naval prowess of this country and in
our rso-trees to believe that such a war would end
at last iu the release of Cuba from Spanish thraldom
and her annexation to the Union. But we do not
want a quarrel with any nation at any price ; and
we would net hasten by a day that natural devel-
opment of our population and territory and in-
fluence, in accordance with which Cuba will finally
gravitate to this republic without a hostile blow
bling struck in her behalf. At present we do not
need her. She is not worth to us the cost of the
shortest probable war with Spain, or the smallest
SUm of money which Spanish pride would consent
to take for her from the American Treasury. Un-
der these circumstances we should discourage all
attempts made by such organizations as the Cuban
League, upon whatever plausible pretext, to embroil
the United States in a difficulty with Spain. The
latest effort of-this kind is a petition which is now
preparing under the auspices of the League to be
sent to Congress, asking the Government to take
such action as will wipe out the foul blot of hu-
man slavery in Cuba." The petitioners do not di.
rectly ask that the United States shall interfere
with a strong band to free the Cuban slaves. But
this is the object of the agitation and they know
that the end sought can be speedily attained in

Violent Scene in the Chamber-Excitement of M.
Gambetta and Tumult among the Members.
Now Gambetta got into the tribune, which he
was to occupy for twobours, fighting battle, it may
be said, almost as much as making a speech. He
began by pointing out that M. de Fourtou had
begun by telling them that very few words were
necessary; but it showed him he had hardly kept
that promise to himself (laughter). As to the part
of the long speech they had heard which concern-
ed himself personally he would make a brief reply.
Among all the social perils" which had been so
fully enumerated as having rendered the act of the
16th of May necessary, he hardly expected to find
his humble person holding so prominent a positi-
on. To make so much of him (Gambetta) was
hardly respectful from the Marshal whose orders
and ideas the Ministry were instructed to convey.
But it was a clumsey trap; they knew that if the
time came for choosing another President of the Re-
public-they knew they had among them an illus-
trious man. Here M. Paul de Cassagnac took up
the part M. Robert Mitchell bad played in the first
part of the sitting, and shouted "That man called
you afoufurieux." Loud cries of Order" from the
Left; peals of derisive laughter from the Right.
Gambetta behaved very well. He turned round
very quietly--"I am determined not to hear any-
thing you may say, and you may put upon my
disdain what construction you think fit." Here
the Right began another exhibition of the most
scandalous kind-hooting, yelling, shaking their
fist at Gambetta. Gambetta, as soon as the turmoil
was a little quelled--" I begin to be quite sorry for
the Government. I pity them f.,r having such
auxiliaries." You are the friend of rascals,"
retorted Cassagnac. All this in the midst of a
tempest of noise of the most remarkable kind-the
Left howled with indignation and the Right imi-
tated the barking of dogs very effectively. Presi-
dent Grevy interposed. Cassagnac shouted at him
pointing at Gambetta. "You are that man's accom-
plice." M. Grevy, who is a grave, dignified man,
here lost his temper, and said," I despise the insults
of M. Paul de Cassagnac." Cassagnac replied,
" Your contempt I fully reciprocate." Then an-1
other indescribable scene. The House "censured"
M. Paul de Cassagnac. One Bonapartist shouted
to him, You are disgracing our party," but the
rest all stood up and applauded Cassagnac, and
when the censure was pronounced upon him shout-
ed again Tous, tous," and went up and shook
hands with him. It was amid such scenes as these
that Gambetta spoke for two full hours. He said
there werefour parties who were all represented
in the Cabinet, and they were not all actuated by
the same views. There were some who thought
that the Marshal was aa institution in himself;
then there were others who imagined that until
1880 the Marshal is only keeping the place warm
for the King; and if the elections were conducted
with a certain skill perhaps the Marshal might be
prevailed upon to make way a little sooner. Then
there was another party-a very clever party-that
had some idea of a kind of Stathonderat"-which
by degrees, and thanks to a lucky accident, might
be converted into a "Temperate Monarchy." But
then, for all that, the help of universal suffrage
was wanted-that "beast of number," as it had
been called, and which refused to be tamed. Then
there was that other honest party-'that told the
Marshal they would be with him only so long as he
," went to the end"-that end being crime-that
honest combination which had the nack of saving
society with a battalion of chasseurs well comand-
ed. Here Paul de Cassagnac again broke out-
"Two gensdarmes are all you require." Here the
scene became again indescribable. When Gam-
betta traced the 1pr,-s:' state of things to the in-
fluence of the clerical party and alluded to Italy,
some one shouted--" Don't talk about foreign
countries." Gambetta replied-" On the contrary
S-it is our duty to make it known across the Alps
that through some ephemeral chance the govern-
ment of the country is in suspicious hands." Here
the Ministers all surged up-the Bonapartists
joined them-they looked as if they were going to
storm the tribune. There was a babal of sounds for
about twenty minutes-and then, in a voice so
hoarse with fatigue that it could hardly be called
human-he delivered his final words. "If any
one of your parties triumphed, civil war would
break out on the morrow; and has a kind of ple-
biscitary turn is being given to this electioneering
consultation the country will not forget the last
plebiscite, when it was promised peace mnd was
given war." Tremendous cheering followed, but
Gambetta was so exhausted on regaining his seat
that he had to be led oat in a fainting state. At
one time, when M. Gambetta said that power was
at present in suspicious hands, M. Paris, the
Minister of Public Works, sprang, with a threat-
ening air, towards the tribune, and the Right and
the Left dashed forward. The ushers had to se-
Sparate the hostile armies. It really seemed as if this
tim3 there would be a hand-to-hand fight, and all
instinctively waited for the reports of revolvers.
When the tumult subsided, M. Gambetta resumed
his speech amid fresh cries, and for a few minutes
a few phrases from a voice by this time rendered
hoarse were only heard between the recurrent yells,
till both sides were worn out, and the speaker
finished in a scarcely intelligible voice. It is'im-
possible to describe this terrible struggle of one man
against a hundred-this orator, with his heavy
manner, his pale face, his soaking brow, drinking
cup after cup of coffee or beer, using up pocket-

handkerchief after pocket-handkerchief, stalking up
and down the tribute, defying his adversaries with
gesture and voice, mingling vulgar tones and tri-
vial expressions with the finest French eloquence,
throwing back his head with contempt, gesticula-
ting furiously when declaring himself indifferent,
and presenting to the breathless galleries the spec-
tacle of a struggle which elicited in turn admira-
tion and criticism.

A list of Military promotions has just been publish-
ed in Berlin, providing for the appointment of that
"thirteenth captain" in each regiment whom Field-
Marshal Moltke, in the Reichstag recently closed, de-
clared to be a necessity in view of possible European
contingencies. There was little inclination, at first, to
grant Moltke's propos 1. Even the terrible compli-
cation in the East, which might at any moment be
converted into what the Germans call a Welt Krieg, or
universal war, did not seem to many Liberals to justi-
fy any enlargement of the military budget and of the
army organisation. The Silent battle-thinker" had
to speak for once in a very strong vein in order to
carry his bill. However, scarcely had the echo ot
the remarks and counter-remarks made during those
debates begun to die away when the unexpected turn
of affairs occurred at Paris, where suddenly the Re-
public has been placed in jeopardy, and an opening
is made for all kinds of dazzling and dangerous ven-
tures. The strengthening of the garrisons on the
western frontier has thereupon been decided by a G ov-
ernment order. It is, of course, still done on the
peace footing-merely as a set-off to the massing of
French troops near the German frontier. Still this
increased vigilance, and the nominations for the thir-
teenth captaincies, are proofs of a certain want of
confidence in the immediate future. No apprehension
exists in Germany that France would be able, just at
this moment, to do anything dangerous. At the same
time, it is universally felt that the main guarantee of
the maintenance of peace between Germany and
France lies in the full preparation of the former
country for any possible case."
