Honorable House in a certain amendment which

copy of which amendment is delivered herewith.
*Cuncil Chamber, 11ih Jany., 1881.
-Thle following Message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by the Colonial Secretary:
(No. 84.)
Governor and Commander-in- Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable Legislative Council that he has been request-
ed by the Board, of Public Works to lay before the
Legislature the accompanying statement of Account
drawn up by a Cominittee of three members of the
Board of Public Works appointed by that Board to
examine and report upon the state in which the
accounts of the late Colonial Surveyor, P. Ness,
Esqr., were found when the Colony was so sudden-
ly deprived of the valuable services of that officer
by the melancholy accident which put an end to his
useful and honorable life.
The statement has been carefully examined by
the Board of Public Works and has been referred
for audit to the Audit Board of this Colony and is
certified by that Audit Board to be correct.
The statement shows that between the 31st May
1879 and the 20th November 1880-a period of
seventeen months and twenty days over which the
Committee found it necessary to carry their inves-
tigations in order to arrive at a perfectly reliable
result-the late Colonial Surveyor had to account
to the Board of Public Works for cash balances
carried over from preceding years and for sums of
money advanced froel time to time from the Pub-
lie Treasury amopting in all to 6,758 7/11 and
that he had expended during the same period on
,+ behalf of the Board of Public Works-as evidenced
by vouchers duly audited by the Audit Board-sums
amounting altogether to 6,543 18/5 leaving a ba-
lance of 2.14 9/6 to be accounted for.
The Board of Public Works has requested the Go-
vernor to inform the Legislature that the moneys
found in the late Colonial Surveyor's chest in his
public ooie'in Hamilton immediately after his
-decease, and which moneys no doubt consisted of
balances remaining unexpended at the time of his
n on various advances received by him from
thinened time from the Public Treasury, amounted
to 213 12/3 being within 17/3 of the balance re.
Smainia g to be accounted for on the late Colonial
Surveyor's general account.
Of that balance of 17/3 there is no doubt what.-
ever that the late Colonial Surveyor had paid away
for the Public service, one sum of 6/, as that pay.-
ment is fully proved by a receipted bill bearing the
signature of the man to whom the money had been
paid and who acknowledges to having received it.
The Committee of the Board of Public Words found
this receipted bill among the papers of the late Co-
lonial Surveyor but did not think themselves justi-
fled in giving Mr. Ness credit for the payment as
it had not been audited by the Audit Board.
The Board of Public Works thinks it probable that
the few remaining shillings left unaccounted for
in the late Colonial Surveyor's accounts may have
been paid away by Mr. Ness for the Public Service
just prior to his decease, and that.he may have been
prevented from obtaining vouchers for that expen.-
diture by the melancholy accident which put so
sudden a termination to his career. -
The Board of Public Works has requested the
Governor to express to the Honorable Legislative
Council the great satisfaction felt by the Board
in being able thus to bring to the notice of the
Legislature the very satisfactory state in which
the accounts of the late ColoiAal Surveyor were
found when the business of his office was so sud-

denly interrupted by his unexpected and melancholy
death, and the Governor feels it to be his duty to
add to this testimony borne by the by the Board of Pub-
lo Works to te worth of the late Colonial Survey-

"' the Cemetery wa enlarged and consecrated by Bis-

handsomely met tb expenses, and Mr. Pilling taste-
fully planned the nranzements and saw them faith-
fully executed." ly a little investigation in this mat-
ter I think you wil!soon find that the idea of enlarg-
ing that cemetery originated with a single individual,
who purchased theland and met all the expenses out
of his own pocket,ind superintended the plan and ar-
rangements. Ondwhose liberality is unbounded in
all that he undertakes, and without meaning to dis-
parage what has ben done by other wealthy Parish-
ioners in improving and beautifying the interior of
that Church, (in wiich I believe this individual did his
full share also,) yo to him alone belongs the credit
of the new Cemetey.

I An Inquest was held in Pembroke Parish yesterday,
by Charles C. Keane, Espr., Coroner, on view of the
body of Samuel Walker, a young man of color, who
died iu a fit on the morning of same day. Verdict,

that the deceased died from the excessive drinking of
alcoholic stimulants."

An interesting paper was read before the Royal
Colonial Institute by the Hon. T. B. H. Berkeley,
entitled The Leeward Islands: their Past and
Present Condition," which elicited considerable dis-
cussion. Sir B. Pine, who was sent out by the
Colonial Office in 1869 to establish the existing
scheme of their federation, remarked that the fede-
ral system, which had existed in the reign of Queen
Anne, had lapsed into decay, and each Island legis-
lated for itself. The basis of the federation was
the mixed character of the Legislature, partly
elected, partly nominated, the elective part only
voting for the members of the Federal Council to be
selected from every island. Sir B. Pine, who was
called away in 1873, admits that the system has
been badly worked and that the constitution has
been unjustifiably interfered with by the turning
of St. Kitts and Nevis into Crown Colonies, and
depriving the people of a proper voice in the selec.
tion of the Federal Council. He regards the reten-
tion of the same officers as injurious to the success
of the Federation ; bt, as the Colonial Officepatron
age was very limited, it was found almost impossible
to carry out his suggestion and change them. Mr
Semper (British Guiana) pointed out how lega
processes formerly were hampered, which undeo
the new system have been rendered uniform in tbh
several islands with public benefit. Where repre
sentation had been lostowing to the want of pro
per material, he had hoped a body of electors woulb
have been created to elect federal representatives
Mr. J. L. Ohlson gave the Colonist's view as against
the official view of Federation, and said that th
results of ten years experience only justified th(
opposition exhibited at the outset. The petition t(
the Queen in 1876 of 760 of the principal inhabit
ants of Nevis sot forth that the surplus of 187.
had been absorbed, that additional heavy taxes ha,
been imposed since 1874, that the official member
of Council outvoted the non-official, who had a rea
stake in the country, while the casting vote mad
the Governor absolute, and the Governor-in-Chie
actually knew little of what was going on under
his nominal government. The facts were admitted
on a question being put in the House of Commons
through his influence, and the illogical reason as
signed that Federation had not been carried fa
enough. Sir Henry Irving spoke of the import
ance of the West Indies, that in Jamaica and Tri
nidad important industries exist in the breeding o
stock and the cultivation of cocoa and coffee, it
addition to the main industry of sugar, on whicl
last the Leeward Islands depend, and the Colonia
Government can do but very little to help the plan
ter. The real difficulty is the insufficiency of there
venues of the islands to provide much more than fo
their poorly paid local establishments. Federation
having secured uniformity of law and procedure
the advantages of efficient civil administration ma:
in time be had. Mr. Liggins, an Antigua proprie
tor, for the last forty-four years personally acquaint
ed with the West Indies, attempted to give express
sion to their natural beauty, and spoke generally
of'their healthiness. The Confederation scheme
which no one wanted except the Colonial Office
supplanting a system that had worked fairly an
well for all classes for over two hundred years, ha
been a most expensive, disastrous and complete

Mr. Middleton moved that the words "such

D. McPiHE LEE, EsQ.,
Dear SIz,
The well-known reputation for candor and fairness
which your long-established journal has deservedly
earned, especially in regard to matters affecting the
interests of the public at large, has induced the
undersigned to endeavor, through the medium of
the Royal Gazette, to vindicate himself in a matter
affecting the interests of parishioners generally
throughout these Islands, and as one side of a story
is very nice until the other is heard, I will endeavor
to relate mine as succinctly and clearly as possible.
After reading the seemingly plausible statement
published in the Bermuda Colonist on the 12th inst.
under the beading, "The Overseers vs R. C. Me-
Callan," I deem it a matter of justice to myself, as
well as other parishioners interested, to publish my
version of the affair, which I shall endeavor to do
to the best of my ability by making a plain unvar-
nished statement of the matter, most carefully
avoiding all quibbles and quirks in regard to the
Imprimis.-When the St. George's Parish Books
were submitted to the parishioners for any ob-
jections to be made concerning taxation on pro-
perty, &c., I therein wr6te my objection, for wilch
I firmly believe I had good and justifiable reasons.
To my knowledge no notice whatever was taken of
my objection, it apparently was treated with "silent
Some months after this, I went to Mr. Albert
Inglis, Chairman of the Vestry, and told him that
as no notice had been taken of my objection, and
should there be none, when the bill for taxes was
presented, I should refuse to pay it, his answer was,
you will have to."
On presentation of the bill for taxes on the pro-
perty in question, I of course refused to pay it, on
the grounds that no notice had been taken of my
objection inscribed upon the parish book.
Result: my being summoned to appear before
a bench of magistrates, viz: W. T. Roberts, J. P.,
and Jas. A. Atwood, J. P.--Overseers nonsuited.
They appealed against the decision and gave bond
to prosecute -ascertained that they could not prose-
cute without calling a meeting of parishioners to
sanction tho same. Parishioners objected to prose-
cution. I then informed the Vestry, in writing,
that I was willing to meet them at any appointed
time and endeavour to settle the affair satisfactorily.
In this letter I also stated that I never had any
intention of endeavoring to avoid paying just and
fair taxes. This overture was met by a refusal.
W. T. Roberts, J.P., one of the presiding magis.
trates, who nonsuited the Overseers, made the
extraordinary assertion in presence of Mr. Inglis
and others, that should the case come before him
again "he would decide against the defendant."
Mr. Roberts was the first person to inform me
that "the Overseers were going to sue me again."
After this frank statement, as a matter of course
the case was again brouy.btb qre Mr. Roberts, and
I very naturally and reasay ,objected to my
case being tried by any one who had publicly pre-
judged the affair.
Mr. Roberts being unable to obtain voluntarily
the assistance of any other magistrate in the parish,
as he so informed me, 'his Excellency the Governor
requested Mr. Hyland, J.P., to act with Mr. Roberts,
my protest to Mr. Roberts adjudicating the case was
Before the Court I asked Mr. Inglis, whose pro.
, perty adjoins that of mine in question, what amount

could not answer the question, but referred to
the parish books, which on my requesting to: see,
the parish clerk, Mr. S. Toddings, who was present,
starts up and preremptorily refused to produce
without a mandamus being issued from the Court.
The next day I demanded of Mr. S. Toddings,
who had been summoned to appear before the Court,
as the right of a parishioner to refer to the books-
demand over-ruled by the Court.
I remarked that if I were debarred from produc-,
ing any evidence on my behalf before the Court, it
would be perfectly useless to attempt to make any
further defence.
Had I been treated with the ordinary courtesy
due to a parishioner, by the Vestry, I should
have had the opportunity of proving by the parish.
books that my stores and wharf were rated at forty
per cent more than those of Mr. Inglis' adjoining
them, which latter, I feel assured, any unprejudiced
parties called upon to value would consider to be
the most valuable.
Mr. Thomas Toddings, one of the Overseers of
the poor, when ask if the bond he gave me was
taken out before or after the parish meeting, he
could not say positively; now the bond was put
into my hands on the 9th of October, and the
meeting was held on the 25th.
The bond was read at the meeting in the presence
of Mr. Toddings. The Colonist says "the case has
been misrepresented." Why did it not publish the
proceedings of the Court if it were for the informa-
tion of the public ?

From the Arm't and Navy Gazette, Dec. 4.

We think our readers will be interested in read
ing the best account, we c'uld obtain of what Sir F.
Roberis said at the United Servimo Club on Friday
the 26th Nov., in replying to the eulogistic speech
made: by H.R.H. the Dake of Cambridge, who, as
chairman, had proposed Our Guest of this Even-
ing,"-which is as follows :-He found it difficult to
find words to tell those present how deeply he felt
the honor conferred on him. It was a mark of ap-
probation of which the most ambitious soldier might
feel proud, to be entertained by the United Services,
but when HI.R.H. the Field-Marshal Commanding-
in-Chief presided, and their Royal Highnesses, the
Prince of Wales, the Duke of Connaught, and the
Prince Christian honoured the entertainment with
their presence, the honour was one greater than he
deserved, or could adequately express his gratitude
for. He would have found the difficulty of reply-
ing to H.R.H.'s speech all the greater, were it not
.that he felt that the honour done him was one which
was reflected on her Mbjesty's armies lately employ-
ed in Afghanistan. Through him their services
wore to-night recognized by the illustrious and dis-
tinguished company present. (Cheers.) Remem-
bering, as he did, how gallant and well behaved
those troops, which he had had the honour to com-
mand during the last two years, had been, he could
not say too much in their favour. (Cheers.) The
gallant General then proceeded to say that the credit
of success was due to those troops; that it was
owing to their great powers of endurance, high state
of discipline, and to that grand esprit de corps, the
life and soul of the British Army (loud and repeated
cheers,) that he had been enabled to carry out the
duties entrusted to him by the Sovereign and the
country; that the British and native soldiers had
vied with each other; that throughout the campaign
a perfect "camaraderie" had existed between the
men, so that Highlanders and Goorkhas, Riflemen
and Sikhs, had said good-bye to one another, wh( n
the time for separation arrived, with mutual feelings
of regard and esteem. In proof of this, Sir F.
Roberts adduced the fact that the men of the 5th
Goorkhas had subscribed over 100 amongst them.
so as to give a present to their comrades in arms of
the.72nd Highlanders, the latter regiment returning
the compliment. (Loud Cheers.) He spoke of the
misgivings he had experienced when first the order
camein September, 1879, for the advance on Cabul,
as to the temper of the Mahommedan portion of the
native army, some few of whom were even recruited
from Afghanistan itself. It would be, however, a
matter of gratification to the company present to
night to learn that the Mahommedan soldiers re-
mained, with but few exceptions, true to their salt,
many indeed had shown marked loyalty and bra-
very before the enemy. (Loud cheers.) He then
referred to that part of His Royal Highness's speech
which praised the march from Cabul to Candahar,
and said that no one was more fully alive to the
difficulties of that undertaking than hbe himself was,
and yet no one felt more certain of its success. He
had, moreover, strongly urged that troops should be
sent from Cabul. He had realized the almost insupera-
ble difficulties which would try to the utmost even the
well known energy and determination of that dis-.
tinguished officer, Major-Genl. Phayre. (Cheers.)
Besides, he felt that after what had just then occur-
red at Candahar, it was absolutely necessary to
show our strength, and strike a swift and decisive
blow. Instead of an immediate evacuation of Cabul
and retirement to India, in the face of defeat at
Candahar, it was imperative to prove to Afghanistan,
and Asia too, that an English army could march at
will from one end of the country to the other.
(Loud cheers.) At that time the troops had been
looking forward to a well-earned rest and an early
return to India, but he had felt certain that they
would all cheerfully respond to any further call that
might be made upon them by their Queen and coun-
try. Sir F. Roberts then spoke in warm terms of
the generous assistance accorded to him by his friend
Sir Donald Stewart, who had placed all the troops
at Cabul at his disposal, and bid him select the
regiments and batteries he wished to take to Can-
dahar, when the orders came for the despatch
thither of a force. (Cheers.) The difficulty then
was not to find enough troops to go, but to decide
which out of so many good corps to leave behind.
(Cheers.) Eventually, he selected those regiments
which had in their ranks the oldest and most sea-
soned soldiers. (Loud and repeated cheers.) Ex-
perience had, he said, taught him that the younger
men were not so well able to stand fatigue, expo-
sure, and privations as their older comrades (loud
cheers); that the march would be a trying one,
even to the strongest, and that it would be impossi-
ble to carry many sick. (Cheers.) The efficiency of
the regiments when they reached Candahar justified
-his selection (cheers), and never was seen a grander
Anglo-Indian force than that which marched from
under the walls of Candahar on Ist of last Septem-
ber to do battle with Ayoob Khan; and with that
force were commanders worthy of the men they
led. (Cheers.) He then went on to attribute the
success he was able to achieve to the splendid ma-
terial at his disposal, and said that with such troops
and such commanders failure was an impossibility,-
thiat no General officer had ever received more valu-
able support, and that he was glad to be able here
to let the officers of the Army know how much he
was indebted to his second in command, Major-Gen.
John Ross, C.B. (cheers); to those able brigadiers,
SMaepherson, Baker, MacGregor, and Hugh Gough;
to those undeniably good commanders of regiments,
and to those hard-working and intelligent officers
of the Staff. (Cheers) Before he- sat down, Sir
F. Roberts said how flattered he felt to have gained
the approbation of his Royal Highness, the head of
Her Majesty's armies; and how gratified he was at
the manner in which his Royal Highness's expres-
sionas had been received by the distinguished com-
pany assembled to-night, and concluded by thanking
all for the honour done him,-an honour which he
never could forget. (Loud cheering.)

Aa the chamois is the only antelope found in
Europe, the baboon of Barbary is the only repre-
sentative of the Quadrumana on that continent; it
is found on the rock of Gibraltar. The comman-
dants of the fort have orders to protect these apes,
and to record all curious facts regarding them.

It appears from this register that at present the
trbd of baboons consists of twenty-five individuals
which always occupy that side of the rock which is
sheltered from the wind. It is supposed that the
tind, from whatever direction, is hu tful to them.
They avoid it with greatest care, and they can de-
tect a change twenty-four hours in advance, so
that when the officers see the apes shifting from one
side of the rock to the other, th'y t,ok out for a
change of weather.
These apes eat grass with avidity, roots, bulbs
(especially those of Oxalie), wild olives, and the
Iruit of a small date which grows naturally on the
rock. They will not touch fruits which the sol-
tiers put in their way, except grapes, of which they
are very lond. They sometimes descend to the
gardens of the town of Gibraltar in search of figs.
The apes drink at a spring in a cavern, near the
level of the Mediterranean, at the steepest part of
the rock. They make light of the difficulties of a
rock which is 400 metres in height, and the sides
ot which are perpendicular. In their gambols,
I, ir favorite amusement is to disappear behind
the borders of the precipice, and let themselves
(own from one projection to another, till they are
a few feet from the line of breakers, then to climb
the giddy height again with equal agility.

Dr. Clark Johnson:
DEAR SIR,-When I visited your manufactory last
autumn, I was suffering from a.fearful pain in the
face and head-the physicians call it neuralgia-and
when you recommended me to try your INDIAN
BLOOD SYRUP I had no faith in it ; but in.leed I
received such a benefit from it that I have since re-
commended it to several who were suffering as I
was, and with a good result, and I cannot let this
opportunity of your second visit to this city go
by without thanking you very much for recommend
ing me to try the INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP.
Yours very truly,

TOROTO, April 21st, 1880.
Dr. Clark Johnson:
Dear Sir,-I have had a pain in the small of my
bick, also through my lungs and shoulders for more
than three years; I have also had liver complaint
and dyspepsia. I have tried doctors' and other me-
dicine, i ut never received any relief until my atten-
tion was called to your valuable INDIAN BLOOD.
PURIFIER; after its use a short time, I can say
that I have felt batter and more able to do my weik
thanI have for the last two years.
77 Richmond Street, West.
I was troubled with derangement of the nervous
system. I was attended with by one of the best
doctors in this part of the country, but obtained no
relief. Your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP relieved
me at once. I really do not think arty onn in ill-
health using it can fail to receive great benefit.
Smithfield, Northumberland Co., Ont.

Port Jollie, Queen's Co., N.S.
Dear Sir,-I have used your excellent INDIAN
BLOOD SYRUP for Liver Complaint, and have re-
ceived great benefit therefrom. I can recommend it
to all sufferers.
WESTPORT, Leeds Co., .Tary. 29, 1879.
Dear Sir,-1 have been suffering for years with
Dyspepsia and Indigestion and Kidney Complaint.
rnd have tried a great many remedies, but without
effect. I became very bad an. could not leave my
bed. I sent to your a2ent, William Dier, for a bhot
tie of your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP and I do not
hesitate to say that it saved my life. I am comn.
pletely cured, and feel like a new man. Last week
my son was taken sick with severe headache, and a
few doses of your valuable medicine cured him.
BERFORD, Brunt Co., Ontario.
Dear Sir,-This is to certify that after using your
INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP for a short time it has
entirely cured me of Dyspepsia. It is all you re.-
commend it to be.

Dear Sir,-In September. 1865, my wife had been

she had heart disease. She was at that lime si.
weak she could not stand, and I had to carry her

soon as the bed was made. She had used your
INDI-N BLOOD SYRUP but a short time when
she began to walk again, and has not kept her bed a

Great progress has been made within a few
years in manufacturing food products, and the
standard of quality has been raised to a point far
beyond that which formerly obtained. We claim
that this has, to a considerable extent, been due
to our efforts ; as the Largest Manufacturers and
Dealers in the world in this line, we consider it
our interest to manufacture only PURE and WHOLE-
SOME goods, and pack them in a tidy and attrac-
tive manner. All goods bearing our name are
guaranteed to be of superior quality, and dealers
are authorized to refund the purchase price in
any case where customers have cause for dissa-
tisfaction. It is, therefore, to the interest of both
