The House resumed and adopted the resolutions
of the Committee.
A Message from His Excellency the Governor:-
(No. 15.)
Gosror and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to lay before the
Honorable House of Assembly accounts made up
by the Superintendent of Public Works, shewing
the'total expenditure incurred up to the present
S time by the Royal Engineer Department, and by the
late Colonial Surveyor, and by the present Super-
intendent of Public Works, in deepening the Tim-
liin's Narrows Char1~l in -Hamilton Harbour,
and in the destruction of the barque Carolina Z-
in St. George's Harbour-amounting altogether to
.95 12#. 10d. expended on the improvement of
"TilHn's- Narrows, and 591 17s. 9d. on the de-
truation of the Carolina Z.
In the Governor's message, No. 5, the expendi-
ture by the Royal Engineer Department upon Tim-
lin's Narrows was set down at 916 15s. 6d., but
the working pay lists which had been included in
that amount were found on examination to be
48 19s. 8d in error, and that amount has according-
ly been deducted from them, reducing the amount
of the expenditure on this work by the Royal En-
gineer Department to 912 15s. 10d.
To this amount, however, must be added a sum
of 19 expended by the late Colonial Surveyor prior
to his death, and a sum of4 6s. Od. paid by him
for boat hire prior to his death, and a sum of5
paid to pilot Charles Deshield for saving a life boat
that had drifted away from Timlin's Narrows,
-and 16 7s. 10d. paid for boat hire, and 6 Os. 2d
still' due for boat hire incurred under the direction ofl
the present Superintendent of Public Works. These
various sums make-up the total expenditure in-
curred upon Timlin's Narrows up to the present
time to 957 12s. 10d. as stated above being, 477
4*. 10d. in excess ot the sums of 380 8s. Od., and
100 available under Resolve No. 6, of 1879, and
No. 10 of 1880.
The expenditure on the Carolina Z was set down
in the Governor's message, No. 5, at 291 19s. 2d.
but an error of Is. 4d. waa discovered by thd Audi!

Board in the War Office account for explosive stores
and this error being deducted reduces the expendi-
ture on the detruotioa of the Carolina Z. to 291
17.. 9d. aM ttAl4 ve.

Of the total expenditure actually paid for the
work at Timlin's Narrows, the vouchers relating
to the sum of 155 8s. 10d. paid in 1879, were fur-
nished by the late Colonial Surveyer to the Audit
Committee of the House of Assembly in 1880, and
it is presumed they are still in the custody of the
House-the vouchers relating to the stun of 88 3s.
Od. expended under the late Colonial Surveyor in
the year 1880 up to the date of his death were sent
to the House of Assembly by the Governor on the
8th inst. with his message No. 13, and the Vouchers
relating to the sum of 236 16s. 2d. paid since the
late Colonial Surveyor's death are in the hands of
the Receiver General, by whom all these payments
were made.
The accounts, vouchers, &c., relating to the outt
standing claims aq yet unpaid for Timlin's, Nar-
rows are forwarded herewith-namely. 32 14s. Sd.
for military pay lists due, 0 6s. 2d. balance of
boat hire still due, 430 8s. 4d. to be paid for ex-
plosive stores, and 13 15s. 8d. for small local bills.
making the total for outstanding claims 477 4s. 10d. this sum of 477 4s. 10d. to meet outstand-
ing claims we add a sum of 70, required to com-
plete the work at Timlin's Narrows by the re-
moval of two dangerous projecting rocks, we find
that a vote of 547 4s. 10d. will be required for the
completion of this useful work.
With respect to the destruction of the Carolina
Z., the vouchers for the amount of 72 15a. 10d.
paid by the Receiver General are in the custody of
that official-the voucher for a sum of 219 Is. lld.
due for explosive stores is attached to the account
furnished by the Superintendent of Public Works.
With respect to the vouchers in the custody of
the Receiver General, the Governor finds that that
official hap a strong objection to parting with them
unless be is enabled to have certified copies made,
and as this work would necessarily involve con-
siderable delay and somp outlay of money, the
Governor has the boner to suggest that it would
perhaps be more convenient and more conducive to
the public interest of the Commihtee appointed by
the Honorable House would be good enough to
examine those vouchers in the Receiver General's
Office, where they would be all produced before
them, and where the Superintendent of Public
Works would attend to give them any explanation
they might require.

before any Justice of the peace in like manner as
debts not exceeding three pounds are recoverable
and with the like right of appeal-which was
agreed to.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SME,-Churehman's strictures on the Church
Society call for an answer, which need not be
lengthy. Churchman seems to base his charge of
non-confidence on two points. 1st, because the
Church Society has not been absorbed by the Synod.
2nd, because he suspects that the Church Society
will in time collect sufficient to render the incomes
of the clergy beyond the wholesome control of the
Laity. And then follow corollaries about the
wholesome terror of the law, establishment, endow-
ment, and the character of the services of the
Now the Church Society is a Public Corporation
specially incorporated by the Bermuda Legislature,
governed by that Act and certain laws made there-
under. In the Act of Incorporation an option is
given the members of the Bermuda Church Society
on a majority of three-fourths to merge in the Sy-
nod which may hereafter be formed. This option
has not yet been exercised, because the constitu-
tion of the Church Society enlists more Church-
men in the immediate work. But if "Church-
Sman" conscientiously thinks the Synod a better
custodian and can persuade his brethren, the
Change may be effected. But the character of the

chinery may be altered. There is nothing exempt

Capt. Spray, of the whaling Schooner E. ,. Hatfleld,
who called off these Islands, on the 4th instant, report-
ed that on the 22nd ultimo, in lat. 32"15, long. 71.20, a
sail was reported by the lookout to leward, but sup-
posing her to be a whaler did not think of going to her
until about 3 p.m., when, from certain appearances
supposing her to be in distress, bore away for her; the
wind falling to a calm, had to take boat, and after a-
pull of some ten miles, got alongside about 8'30.
Hailed her : receiving no answer, went on board. Found
her to be the Schr Ringleader of Boston, Capt. George E
Smith of Bangor, Maine, laden with p.p. lumber, water-
( logged and abandoned, deck load gone. Among the
papers found on board, was a receipt dated Wilming-
ton, 6th May, 1881, for Stevedoring 98,000 feet of*
lumber. The only sail set was a three reefed foresail,
the other sails reefed and furled; on following morning
on examining the riggin. discovered two 'of the 'star-
boardmain and one of the fore, had been out-every-
thing else perfect. There was some newly baked cake,
bread, &C., in the cabin, indicating that she had been
but recently abandoned. The vessel 'being per-
-fectly tight Captain S. inferred that she must
have filled through the main hatchway, which
was open.-On the third day Captain S. with 15 men
again went to the derelict, and after battening
the hatchway, he put all hands to the pumps and
freed her in about 30 hours. He then placed a
prize crew on board under the command of Mr. William
Kirkconnell, with directions to take her to Edgar-

FInE ALAnM.-The good people of this town
were aroused from their slumbers about a quarter
after four o'clock on the morning of Saturday, by
the ringing of the fire alarm bell at the Town Hal],
as well as by the bell ofTrinity Church, It was soon
ascertained that the fire was in the lower part of
the Odd Fellows' Hall, at present used as a place
of worship by the members of the British Metho.
dist Episcopal Church, and in a portion divided
from the hall by a wooden partition, used as a
vestry. A table and some papers were found in a
blaze by the first persons that succeeded in ob-
taining an entrance; a few buckets of water soon
put the fire out. The fire was discovered by Mr.
B. N. Stone, who living in the neighborhood was
moving at that early hour on some special busi-
ness, and who gave the alarm. It seems there was
a meeting of some members of the church in the
vestry room on the previous evening, and it is
generally supposed that sufficient care was not
taken in extinguishing the kerosene light used on
the occasion. -i fortunateL tha the fire was
so early discovered, or the destruction of a fine
building would doubtless have been the conse-
quence. The steam engine was quickly in readi-
ness, but fortunately its services were not re-

The Vallacks.
These favorite actors have just completed a suc-
cessful three night's performance in Somerset.
Their reception was most' flattering on all occa-
sions, and they have left 'their numerous friends
under a promise to return and give a few more-en-
tertainments there prior to their final departure
from Bermuda. The Tripologue is now sojourning
at St. Georges, and while resting on their oars,
beautiful strains of vocal and instrumental music
may be nightly heard wafted on the gentle breeze
from the Town Hall to the surrounding neighbor-
hood, for the Troupe are industriously persevering
under the able direction of the fair Fannie, re-
hearsing Pinafore" in conjunction with several
amateurs of notability, who have handsomely come
forward to support the Wallacks in rendering an
opera perhaps in as perfect a form as presented on
metropolitan boards. Watty is the stage manager
and'the acting of the party will be under his es-
pecial tutorship. Rider will be the prompter. The
troupe are making considerable progress, nearly all
being musicians and experienced vocalists. Much
money has already been lavished on the costumes.
Fanny, Watty, and Rider have the reputation of
being about as good a Josephine, Buttercup and
Deadeye, as are to be met with on the American
stage, and the opinions of the press that we have
seen of them in their respective roles, lead us to
anticipate some fine burlesque acting. The first
performance will take place in from 2 to three
weeks in St. Georges--but we regret to inform our
readers that the occupation of the volunteered
members of the company will preclude the possi-
bility of Pinafore being represented anywhere but
St. Georgss. This is too bad, we must try to
overcome this obstacle, for crowded houses would
ensure the Wallacks a bonanza here.

NEW YORE, June 16, 1881.
There has been but a dull market this week, and
we quote sales of Flamborough's" Cargo at fol-
lowing prices :
Onions, $1 for the best.
Potatoes, $5"50 ; Choice lots, $6.
Tomatoes, 30c. to 40c.
The Onions this trip arrived in poor condition, a
great many being damaged. Potatoes are now
coming in freely from Virginia, Savannah and
Charleston, thus putting down prices of Bermuda.
BermudaTomatoes are now in poor demand, and
are not wanted.

To tole Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sin,-While agreeing with the Attorney General
that the wild birds in these Islands ought to be pro-
tected, yet I shall be glad to see him introduce a
clause in his bill, now before the Colonial Parlia-
ment-which will allow Quail and Partridge to be
shot from the first day of September to the first day
of February. This, I believe, is English law. If the
Attorney General does not indulge in this sport
himself, there are many stationed in these Islands
who do, and enjoy a day's shooting which, though
very poor, somewhat relieves the otherwise awful
monotony of the place. The Legislature need not
fear that too great a quantity of these delicious
birds will be shot, for the sage-bush is a greater
protection to them than any law the Legislature
can make.
Many persons think laws in force in England
should become law here. I think that Quail and
Partridge ought not to be protected during the
months such birds are allowed to be shot in Eng.
land and other places.

Yours truly,


The splendid French steam Yacht Bretagne,
owned by Henry Say, Esq, Captain Lafond, ar-
rived at St. Georges on Friday last, in 60 hours
from Cape Virginia.
The Bretagne" is barque rigged, of 735 20-100
tons burthen, and was built in Baltimore during the
present year. No expense has been spared in her
construction and general fitting. Her cabin ac-
commodations, are, we are told, magnificent. It
is the intention of Mr. Say to make a voyage
round the world in his beautiful Yacht, and pro-
ceeds hence to Brittany to receive on board some
friends who are to accompany him in his
extensive voyage.

tons, but carries only a few light guns for defensive
purposes. Her deck is only 4. feet above the wa-
ter line. She is fitted with a 12-foot ram and 3
ports for discharging torpedoes under water, besides
ordinary torpedo apparatus. The vessel is wholly
constructed of steel, and armoured 6J feet below the
water line, and the deck is formed of three inch
plates of chilled steel. The ship is decided into a
number of water-tight compartments. The whole
apparatus for steering and for firing torpedoes is
concentrated in an armored tower. Her engines
are of 5,500-horse power, and her speed is estimated
at 17 knots an hour.

me about your family plate, which I have :a often
been accused of stealing to decorate my own Jtabe
with. You, no doubt, in common with many.Su th
eners, think the charge true, I will enlighten you on
the subject. As soon as I had occupied your father's
deserted house, one of your colored servants came to
me with a load of silver, saying that your father had
buried it in the garden, to keep it rom the hated
Yankees ; but that as now he had gone, the servant,
having seen the act, dug it up, and was desirous to.
hand it over to the proper authorities. I used the
silver while I had my headquarters at your father's
place; but afterward I turned every piece-spoons,
forks, salvors and dishes-over to the Quartermaster's
Department. Here, Madam, are the vouchers for
very article brought mne by your colored servant."
And Butler opened his desk and took out a neatly

This will not, ot course, prevent most of the Southen-
ers and many of the Northerners Irom swearing that
Butler did steal Twigg's silver and never returned it
and never accounted for it. There are falsehoods
which no amoupt of truth or disapproval will or can
extinguish ; and Butler and the spoons is a conspic.
ouus example thereof.-N. Y. TTnes, April 11.

In the House of Commons June 18th, Mr. Fors-
ter, Chief Secretary for Ireland, took occasion, on
the allegation of an Irish member that he (Mr. Fors-
ter) had expressed regret that the troops and pol-
ice had not fired on the people; to read the in-
structions issued during the New Pallas riots, the
salient point of which was that the resident magis-
trate should give due warning to the crowd to dis.a
perse, and use his best discretion to avoid giving
orders to fire, unless he was satisfied that other less
extreme measures would not suffice, but that he
must bear In mind that the legal processes which
formed the object of the expedition must be carried
out. Mr. Forster said the law could not be defeat-
ed, and that in extreme cases it must be left to the
discretion of the magistrate to give the necessary
instructions. The Secretary intimated that the
Government would continue to carry out its duties
in the spirit of the above instructions.
The House of Commons June 14, passed, by a vote
of 196 to 154, Sir Wilfrid Lawson's resolution that
it is desirable to give legislative effect to the former
resolution, which affirmed the Justice of local com-
munities being intrusted with power to protect
themselves from the operation of the liquor traffic.
Mr. Gladstone voted in the minority. Mr. Forster,
Mr. Bright, Mr. Groschen, and Dr. Playfair voted
in the majority.
In the House of Commons June 15, the Right
Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,'President of the Board of
Trade, speaking on behalf of the Government, ex-
pressing his approval of the principal of a bill intro-
duced by Mr. Anderson, Advanced Liberal, member
for Glasgow, for amending the Patent laws in the
sense of a large reduction in fees and the extension
of the time of patents, in imitation of the American
system. He said the Government would be glad
to legislate upon the subject at the earliest possible
moment, but it would be impossible to do so at
this session of Parliament. All the speakers on the
subject dwelled upon the effect of the American
patent system in fostering inventions.
The House of Commons went into committee of
the Land bill on 15th. The Government consent.
ed to some verbal modifications. One or two
amendments were negatived. Mr. Gladstone a.
greed to an amendment proposed by Mr. Charles
Russel (Liberal), in accordance with which section
5, clause 1, will read that a landlord may refuse
to admit a purchaser as a tenant on reasonable
grounds. As a recital of the grounds on which a
landlord is entitled to object to a tenant contained
in the original draft of the bill had caused much ill-
feeling in Ireland, amendments filling a wh,!' page
of the notice paper had been aimed it.
These, in consequence of Mr. Gladstone's decision ,
all fell through. Equally rapid progress waa
made with some other amendments.
In the House of Commons to night Mr. Nolan,
Liberal and Home Rule member for Galway, ob-
tained leave to introduce a bill to suspend evictions
in Ireland for a limited period on payment of six
months' rent.
Mr. Gladstone stated that the Government had
not considered the course they should adopt in re-
gard to such a bill.

The News says:" It may be safely assumed that

The Times says: "There is go'd reason to hope
that in spite of the length and complexity of the
Land bill and the vast number of amendments
thereto, it will be possible to get through the main
portion of the work by the middle of July or even
earlier. The withdrawal of many Liberal and
Conservative amendments is substantial proof of a
disposition to bring the controversy within a rea.
sonable narrow compass."
LIVSaPooL, June 15.-The Mayor has received
a letter from Sir William Harcourt, the Home Sec-
retary, stating that the Treasury Solicitor will

,What purports to be a trustworthy explanation of
the manner in which Benjamin F. Butler acquired the
unhappy fame of a purloiner of silver spoons is given
by the Washington correspondent of a Western news-
paper. A lady went to Gen. Garfield, some months
ago, and introduced herself as the daughter of Gen.
David E. Twigga, who left our army, where he had
gained the rank of Major-General, to join the seces-
sionists at the opening of the rebellion. She stated
her object to be the recovery of her father's two
swords captured by Butler when he entered New Or.-
leans in the Spring of 1862. One sword had been
voted to Twigga by Congress in recognition of his
services during the Mexican war; the other was the
weapon he had drawn in behalf of the Confederacy.'
She was particularly anxious to secure the latter, be.
cause her father had pricedd it far above its fellow.
Garfield referred her to Butler, whom she feared to
meet on account of the terrible reputation he had
gained in the South. Having assured that he
was not nearly so black as he had been painted, she
sought him out, and, to her surprise was very politely
received. He informed her that he had sent the
sword to Washington, with the request that one be
given to the Annapolis Academy, and the other to
West Point, as trophies of the'civil war. His request
was not complied with. They were, instead, locked
up in the vaults of the Treasury for safekeeping, and
onq of the duplicate keys was delivered to him. He
then added : You have not, my dear Madam, asked

"From the Western Morning News, May 18.
-,It would certainly be'premature to pronounce any
-definite opinion as to the place which will be occu-
pied by the revised version of the New Testament
until we have given a much closer scrutiny to the
volume than has been possible in the brief time that
has elapsed since its publication. The matters of
scholastic accuracy in translation and of textual
criticism, though otcuping a very high place, and
in fact forming the raison d'6tre of this revision, will
by-and-by sink into secondary importance and
the question as to the value of the work will be
solved by the degree in which the new volume takes
hold of popular sympathy. And that degree will
certainly depend upon the reply made to the further
demand. Is it a new volume; or only the old sup-
vlemented with the necessary emendations ? Popu-
lar opinion would, we are sure, rebel against any
unnecessary tampering with the old words which
have become of necessity sacred words to all of us,
through the early associations with which they are
bannd up.
Anything that disturbed the ring of the old style
orthe charm of the familiar language would be poorly
compensated by a slight increase of accuracy, per-
ceptible only by the scholar, and not involving any
vital truth. We are not sure that the revisers have
always steered clear of this fault. Indeed, had they
4-me so, it would have been a miracle almost ap.
preaching the old fabulous tradition of the literal
agreement attained by the seventy translators from
the Hebrew into the Greek. No such perfection is
claimed by those who have done their work with a
conscientiousness which is above all suspicion. "We
know full well," they say in their preface. "that de-
fects must have their place in a work so long and so
arduous as this which has now come to an end.
Blemishes and imperfections there are in the noble
translation which we have been called upon to re-
vise; blemishes and imperfections will assuredly be
found in our own revision. While we dare to hope
that in places not a few of the New Testament the
introduction of slight changes has cast a new light
upon much that was difficult and obscure, we cannot
forget how often we have failed in expressing some
finer shade of meaning which we recognized in the
original, how often idiom has stood in the way ol a
perfect rendering, and how often the attempt to
perserve a familiar form of words or even a familiar
cadence has only added another perplexity to those
which already beset us.' To say that the traces of
this twofold difficulty are perceptible in the volume is only to say that the revisers were hu.-
man, and that they counteredd the inevitable diffi-
culty of making a popular, translation into idiomatic
Epglish of passages from the Greek, and of passages,
m4qreover, which had become familiar to the eye and
ear of the English reader or hearer, 'not always
in the most correct form. While some persons will
think that the revisers have over refined, as for
example, in their alteration of the Lord's Prayer,
others will deem, as the American critics do, that
every archaism should have been banished from!
what is designed to be a representative book of the
current English language.
Having premised so much as this as to the two-
fold difficulty which met the revisers so soon as
ever they had cut themselves adrift from the Textus
Reoeptus and proceeded to what we may call under
protest their new Authorised Version, the most
satisfactory way of testing the mode in which their
delicate task has been done will be to take some
familiar passage and notice wherein the old and the
new versions differ. Next to the daily prayer which
the little child learns at its mother's knee, the pas-
sage which has of necessity become ingrained in the
very-being of most of us in that splendid treatise on
the general resurrection which occurs in 1 Cor. xv.
Those who never go to Church at other times, who
never read or listen to the words of Scripture, pay
their infrequent visit there, they read or listen then.
Ka the opening clauses of that portion which has thus
been selected for special use occurs the well known
but perhaps not generally understood passage: "He
hath put all things under His feet. But when He
saith, all things are put under Him. it is manifest
that He is excepted which did put all things under
Him. And when all things shall be subdued unto
Him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto
Him that put all things under Him." This is ren-
dered in the new version-and readers will. not fail
to notice the almost excessive refinement in punc-
tuation; "For he put all things in subjection under
His feet. But when He said all things are put in
subjection, it is manifest that He is excepted who
did subject all things unto Him. And when all
things have been subjected unto Him, then shall
the Son also himself be subjected to Him that did
subject all things unto Him." This is a passage in
which we can well believe many will find an officious
meddling with the original text. Apart from any-
thing that can be stigmatized as Bibliolatry they will
protest against change for the mere sake of change,
as again in the context where a well known quo-
tation is rendered Evil company doth corrupt good
"Awake up righteously, and-sin not; for some have
no knowledge of God; I speak this to move you to
shame." From this point, however, scarcely any-
change, except a verbal one much to be commended, :
is noticed in the fine passage beginning thus-we
quote from the Revised Version; Some one will
say how are the dead raised ? and with what man-
ner of body do they come Thou foolish one, that
which thou thyself lowest is not quickened except
it die." In the concluding part of this treatise
which 'ends the lesson used for the Burial Service in
the Church of England, the retention of a word
which -rigid scholasticism might have expunged
shews that the revisers have been tender to the pre-
judices of humble critics. The passage runs still as of
old,:" Wherefore my beloved bretbern, be ye stead.
fast, immovable, always abounding in the work of
the Lord, forasmuch as your labour is not vain in
the Lord." On the as pede Beculem principle, we
believe that a very fair estimate of the whole work
done by the revisers may be formed from this, which
is, perhaps, the most familiarly known of the subject
matter over which their labors ranged. On the
whole, and as far as a hasty glance will enable us to
Judge we believe that the task has been performed
without that mere scholastic spirit which would

certainly in this particular instance have been very
offensive pedantry indeed; and with regard for those
traditional feelings for the litera scripta which will
one of these days lead our children's children per-
aps to regard what is now the new version of the
scriptures with as much veneration as we do that
whiah we now dignify by the name of the Authorised
The Revised Version is to be published to-night
at midnight, and is to be distributed over the coun-
try to-morrow by the newspaper' trains, so that
people may get their new New Testament along with
their morning, journal at breakfast if they are so
disposed. How great the demand is for the work
may be gathered from the fact that one London
bookseller alone has demanded 8,000 copies, and
finds that a)l too small an order. Oxford, it is said,
bears the palm in the number of copies ready though
both started fair. The controversies about the
changed passages has already begun. A charge of
" unco orthodoxy" is already levelled at the heads
of the revisers. They have put the Evil Oae in the
Lord's Prayer to sustain the existence of the Per-
sonal Devil, though the word used in the original
does not necessarily imply personality, the mascu-
line and the neuter being the same word. They
have translated "Gehenna," which was a well
known and existing place by "Hell" which it does
not necessarily imply. They have left the Epistle
to the Hebrews with the name of St. Paul as its
author, though evey Biblical' scholar kpows that the

argument against the Apostle's authorship is irrefu-
table,' and nobody thought Dean Alford a here-
tic when -he attributed it to Apollos. They have
refused to recognize the wise men from the East as
Persian magi. They have translated the indefinite
term "spirit" by the more definite "ghost," which
is not a satisfactory rendering of the original, be-
cause the original as it stands is as vague as the
word spirit. Then they have changed "Lead me
anot into temptation" into "Bring me not into temp-
tation These changes and many like them will
be fought over with great zeal; but it will be seen
that they are of a character which make for the
general ecclesiastical acceptance of the new book.
They disappoint men of Broad views, but they will
win the approval of the parsonic mind, and men of
Broad views do not lay at any time great stress
upon mere words. They can always explain them.
A liquid fuel for steamships and locomotives is
attracting the attention of scientists in Europe and
Asia. It has been tried with complete success on
the fastest Russian mailboat on the Caspian Sea,
a and it is to be adopted on the locomotives of va-
rious Asiatic lines. The fluid is simply the refuse
of petroleum oil, whicl is carried in an iron tank,
and blown into spray inside the furnace by a jet of
steam, where it burns with a roaring sheet of flame.
Such a means of combustion requires no stoking,
and the flame can be manipulated like a jet of gas,
and the steam pressure is easily regulated and kept
constant. Moreover, there are no ashes, and the
smoke is free from sulphur.
THn PANAMA CANAL.-The Canal informs aus that
a great many of the men and some of the officers of
the Canal Company are down with the fever of the
country. At Mamie, the brigade there is wholly
unable to prosecute work as the men are nearly all
down with fever. At Empire a subchief in the
brigade de sondages was unconscious and dying at
last report. Mr. Morel of the Engineer Depart-
ment is still very ill, but will recover. On the 22nd
instant Mons. Seriot died at the Grand Hotel in
Panama. The deceased was employed by the In-
terooeanic Canal Company, and was second in
command of the sounding commissioners. He was,
84 years of age and fell a victim to pernicious fever.
A great deal of sickness obtains.
OUR MALADIES.-Typhus fever, its appearance
in this city without importation and the develope-
ment it may possibly reach, are themes that still at-
tract the attention of the public and the doctors.
Every other so-called fever except typhus is a dis-
ease produced in man by foreign poisonous substan-
ces taken in the water or breathed in the air; but
tyhus is the human fever proper and is produced by
emanations from the bodies of human creatures,
crowded in bad habitations and breathing over and
over again the air breathed by one another and load-
ed with poisonous substances of animal decay. Ty-
phoid fever, a more familiar malady, is so called as
it is a milder image of typhus. Outside of these
two another fever is active in the city-a sort of
spurious typhoid that has some relation to the ordin-
ary miasmatic disease-and is supposed to be prop- I
ogated by the mixed filth of the streets, partly veg-
etable and partly animal detritus. Doubtless the
various indescribable eruptive troubles and glandu-
lar diseases that have appeared in the city through
the winter are related to the same causes.-New

IN answer to inquiries received daily as to
k whether or not we will receive consignments
of Vegetables and Fruits from Florida and their
Southern Districts we beg to say that we have
extra facilities, and have made special arrange-
ments for handling such shipments, and we are
certain that no house in Philadelphia or the
United States will try harder to give ship rs
entire satisfpctiou. Ours is not a ON E-1HORsE
CONCERN. We have been established in
business in Philadelphia for the past fifteen
years. By hard work and strict attention to the
interests of our patrons we have built up an im
meonse business, and our store is to-day the la-
gest Fruit and Produce Establishment in Ame-
rica, or the Wurld. We do not ask you to take
our word for it. If you will make inquiries or
come and see us you will be convinced of the
truth of what we assert. Growers and shippers
should know all about the character, standing
and responsibility of firms to whom they ship. It
is these one-horse concerns, without character,
responsibility or brains, that demoralize our
markets and demoralize shippers. YOU
( TO WHOM YOU SHIP. We solicit con-
signmnents and we court investigation. We
have trade for everything in the Fruit and Pro-
duce line. Account sales and remittances will
be forwarded the day goods are sold. Stencils
furnished on application. Correspondence so-
iited. All inquiries cheerfully answered. We
lolicit your consignments, and promising our
best efforts in your behalf, we beg to subscribe

LONDON, June 19.-Twenty-five ambulance wag-
ons, 150 field stretchers, and other stores for wound-
ed have been sent to Ireland from Woolwich.
LoNDoN, June 20.-The Dublin correspondent
of the Times says:" The fact is evident that the
Lard League has received a series of heavy blows
which are telling upon it, and a more tractable
and tolerant spirit, is showing itself, as the power
of local despots is broken. The strike against
the payment of rent is checked, the leaders repnd-
iating any intention to adopt such a policy.
In the House of Commons to-day June 20, Mr.
Gladstone, replying to the question of Mr. Stan-
hope (Conservative) of which notice was given on
June 10,as to whether representations had been
made to the American Government in regard to
American organizations for committing outrages
in England, made a semni-hu:norous speech Helie
said he was not aware what grounds Mr. Stanhope
had for speaking of preparations in America for
outrages in England. lie pointed out that the
newspaper incitements to outrages by no means
limited the commission of outrages to various
parts of England, but indicated individuals, giv-
ing some particular prominence. This allusion
to threats to shoot himself and Mr. Forster was
received with laughter and cheers. Mr. Gladstone
said in conclusion that, viewing the nature of
these extraordinary productions, the Government
thought it right to bring the facts to the knowledge
of the Government of the United States.
The House of Commons this evening went into
committee on the Land bill.
Mr. Healy's amendment to the third Clause,

that act and taken to Dundalk Jail, charged with
inciting to riot and assualt i the county Limer-
DUBLIN, June 20.--Terce men have been senten-
ced to five years', penal servitude for riot and
violent assult upon the police.
LONDON, June 21.-The Dublin correspondent of
the Daily News says the arrest of Mr. Cox leaves
the management of the Land League exclusively
in the hands of Mr. Sexton. Cox was originally,
the League organizer for the province of Ulster,
but the imprisonment of the Dublin executive
rendered his services in Dublin indispensable, and
since Hlarrington's arrest be has been the only
active organizer in the Midland counties.
LONDON, June 22.-The Berlin correspondent of
the Times telegraphs that he has received a letter
from St. Petersburg which says : Two hundred
police have been sent to Peterhoff to assist the sol-
diers in watching the palace there, the present res-
idence of the Court. Photographs of all the rail-
way officials have been lodged in a Government de-
partment, so as to aid in the detection of Nihilists
disguised in the railway costume.
"Strenuous efforts are being made to find con-
necting links of evidence, in order to give more
unity to the trials of numerous important political
prisoners, which must be held next autumn. The
fortresses and prisons are crowded. It is observed
in official circles that Russia cannot possibly make
such an exhibition of herself before the world as to
try a thousand or two political offenders; and as
something must be done with all these prisoners to
make room for others the only way to dispose of
them quietly and expeditiously is by the system of
administrative deportation which General Melikoff'
the late Minister of the Interior, sought to abolish."
deputation of Ulster tenant farmers to-day had an
interview with- Mr. Parnell and other Home Rule
Members of Parliament, at which it was agreed
that the HoaRe Rulers should strenuously oppose
the Governme;'t amendments to the Land bill.
LONDON, JUNE 23.-At the interview between
the Ulster tonant farmers and the Home Rulers yes-
terday the Parnellites manifested a willingness to
,'i;hh-: v tLs many of the amendments to the Land
bill an possible, except where vital or important
principles are involved. The Ulster delegates ex-
pressed the gravest alarm at tho idea of the Govern-
ment e :,,,_ agfrom the bill the direction to thejLand
Court to exclude the tenant s interest from all con-
sideration of rent ia filing a fair rental of a holding.
It is stated that Mr. Parnell will sail in July, di-
rectly the Laud bill has passed in committee of the
House of Commons, for an extended political tour
in the United Stotes.
LONDON, June 21.-The Times says: "The con-
cessions, made by the Government, in committee of
the House of Commons, Friday and last evening
have visibly smoothed Ithe way for progress on
the Land bill.
The Morning Post states that the Paraeliites have
resolved not to hold any more meeting, at present,
but to wait and see what shape the Land bill is
likely to assume before it passes the House of

At a meeting of the Land League in Dub;in to-
day Mr. Sexton, who now, has the exclusive man-
agemoent of the organization, made a strong appeal
to America for funds. He said they had arrived at
a critical stage of the struggle of the League and
the expenditures were very large.
The Pall Mall Gazette this afternoon says : We
wvish the Government had followed the sound prin-
ciple of letting O'Donovan Rossa alone. It is very
fine for the Telegraph to talk about requiring
America to treat planners of insurrection as the
English Government has treated Herr Most, pro-
prietor of the Freiheit. We may require as much
as we please, but, unless we are much mistaken,
America will give short answer to such reqnisltiouns.
It seems extremely improbable that the American
Government will be allowed, either by tradition or
policy, to meddle with the Irish-.American press.
Any such preparations for an expedition it will
doubtless put down as it has done before."

mations prohibiting a number of meetings announ-
ced to be held, placing the city and county of

LOND ON, June 22.-The police have seized and
confiscated a large number of cartridges found op-
posite the house of a well-known member of the
Land League at Dewsbury, near Leeds. The Land
League is very strong in that district.
The News understands that the communications
with United States Government in regard to in-
centives to crime in the United Kingdom, publish-
ed by Irish papers in America will be conducted at
Washington through the Hon. Lionel Sackville
West, the successor of Sir Edward Thornton.
Among the articles to which the attention of the
Washington Cabinet will be called are one speak-
ing of what is called "the late visit of the Prince
of Wales to the Continent," and indicating t.e
methods by which a fatal railway accident might
be produced with impunity, and another consisting
of what professes to be an account of the trial of
Mr. Gladstone by a secret society, followed by his
condemnation to death.
MARSEILLES, June 21.-The city is reassuming
is usual aspect. The workman returned quiet ly
to their respective shops this morning.
A telegram from Marseilles says that details of
the disturbances show that the rioters on each side
did not come in conflict in bodies, but confined
themselves to hunting down isolated individuals,
some of whom were thus barbarously murdered.
A dispatch from Rome to the Times says: "It
is impossible to describe the indignation the Mar-
seilles affair has caused here. The Chamber of De-
puties received with ironical coca~rants the state-
ment of Signor Mancini, Minister of Foraign affairs,
that the conduct both of the Marseilles authorities
and the Italian Consul had been perfectly correct,
and that they had done their utmost to prevent in-
sult ro the Italian escutcheon. Signor Mancini
added that he had sent instructions to the Italian
Ambassador, in order that the most energetic mea-
sures for the protection of Italians might be taken,
and he did not doubt that the French Government
would be interested in preventing acts calculated
to disturb the good relations between the two

The Westert Morning News has received from a
Spanish correspondent at Punta Arenas, Straits of
Magellan, a description of the blowing up of the
Doterel from a shore standpoint. He says:-" The
weather was fine, and tolerably calm, and the Dot.
crel was proudly lying in the midst of the bay, sur-
rounded by small vessels. Her goag sounded 10 o'-
clock, and the clocks on shore were righted by it.
Two minutes afterwards, there was a horrible de-
tonation, succeeded by an enormous shaking. It
was like an earthquake, and frightened everybody.
The first impulse was to get into the streets, whore
nothing was to be seen but people running in diff-
erent directions, seeking the cause cf the noise.
Then all eyes were directed towards the water, and,
oh! horror! on the space which the Doterel had
occupied was an immense body of smoke, fire, and
objects of different forms; the sea was covered
with an infiuity.of objects, and had the appearance
of the effect caused in a lake by the downpour ac-
companying a summnaer squall. The small vessels
which surrounded the Doterel were agitated and
scattered in all directions, as if by a hurricane.
One of the launches 300 metres from the catastrophe
received a blow from a heavy object, which pierced
her through from side to side, and she went to the
bottom. The deck of the Government pontoon was
covered by facing objects, one of which was a piece
of iron 70 lb. in weight. A ship's yardarm fell
alongside the quay, and one ball pierced right
through the roof of a house. The fact that the
Doterel had blown up immediately became appar-
ent. There was a cry to save the shipwrecked. A
number of boats were launched by many a strong
arm, and rowed towards where the dense smoke
was. In fact, the enthusiasm to render assistance
was so great, that soeie launched their boats with-
out oars in them The smoke disappeared, and no
Doterel was to be seen. In her place there was
nothing but fragments and a boat. It was seen
drawing near to the shore. Another boat directed
its course to the pontoon, and a third boat also
came towards the land. The first boat contained a
man completely naked, with his body covered with
blood from an infinity of wounds, which fortunately
were slight. This, of slight, gentlemanly ap.
pearance, was the commander, Three boats, and
then four boats came to shore, and they were re-
ceived by the people, who were enthusiastic with
joy, and vied one with another to render help.
Half an hour later all the boats tlhat had put out re-
turned to the shore, and in the countenances of
their conductor, could b) read the sadness which
oppressed them in consequence of the small result
of their researches; for in all they had only been
able to rescue twelve lives and some human frag-
ments, which were buried in our cemetery. All
was now over; uothing more remaining but the sad
recollection of what was once the Doterei."-Fromn
the Army andNavy Gazettlle, June 4, 1881.

ner this morning publishes an interview with g'ne-
ral W. H. L. Barnes, the general purport of which
is that the real Roger Tiehbourne has at length
turned up and has unfolden his story to General
Barnes. The alleged ''t.hBourne came to him for
certain information as to how he could best obtain
documentary evidence to show that he had never
been in Rio Janeiro, had never left there in the ves-
sel Bella, and never been wrecked and picked up
by the Osprey, as stated by Arthur Orton, the
Tichbourne claimant. General Barnes subjected
his visitor to a rignrouss examination of several
days' duration, during which he told so straight a
story, including many points in which Orten failed,
and other points that did not come out in the triai,
and exhibited physically such identity with the
lost heir, that Gerlcnral Harnes says he has reluct-

antly arrived at, the coitclusiou that either the true
Tiebborne bas turned up, or that the man in
question is the most adro3i swindler he, has ever
met in a long course of practice.
The Duke of Sutherland and Dr Russel also had
an interview with the man, and a full statement of
the case has been mailed to England by Dr-
Tichborne says that he has been for a grea-t por-
tion of the time in the United States, that he served
through the war, was married in Brooklyn, N. Y.,
and is now living in the vicinity of San Diego, but
will be ia the city again ia a few days. He says
that his silence is the result of a determination on
his part to remain incognito for a certain number
of years, now elapsed, and this determination was
brought about by deep feeling of chagrin at the op-
position to his marriage with his cousin Kate. The
question of being able to establish big identity does
not seem to give him the slightest concern, the sole
object of his call on General Barnes being to ob-
tain evidence to show the falsity of the Report re-
garding the Rio de Janerio episode.

Deal, her captain having been drowned.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sir-In order to obtain all possible information
as to the Cause of fire in the Oddfellows Building
on the morning of the 18th inst., the members of
the Lodge held two meetings of enquiry, but re-
gret that, after every effort had been exhausted,
the results did not prove sufficient to afford the
* desired satisfaction, either to the members of the
Lodge, or the adjacent public. It is to be regretted
that the time between the occurrence, and the last
issue of the Gazette, would not permit to make
known the results of the enquiry, as it might have
had a tendency to prevent any mistatement as to
the cause of the fire; and as it was deemed a right
due the public (whose property would have been
cndangere I, had tha fir- not have been extinguish.
ed) to inform them (as far as our efforts could
grasp,) as to the cause, through the medium of the
press, I was directed by our members to ask that
you would kindly give publicity to this letter in
your next issue. The fire is supposed to have been
caused by the explosion of a kerosene lamp, which
was extinguished and left on the threshold of the
, window south of the west door of the Basement
Storey, on the night of the 15th inst., but had been
afterwards use', and accidentally left alight on a
table that had a lot of papers in a drawer beneath,
in the vestry of the B. M. E. Church, but as there
has been no further evidence to prove that any per-
son or persons had been in that part of the Build-
ing', between the 15th and 18th inst., ib has been
impossible to trace it to any one person. But
notwith-taanding there are a few who are impressed
that it w t the work of an incendiary, and for any
information th't will lead to the conviction of such
an one, the members of the Lodge, 1026, G. U. 0.
of 0. F., will give a reward of Twenty Pounds
By Order,
P. S.-The members of the Lodge take this op-
portunity of informing Mr. B. N. Stone, Mr. G-.
Thomnson, an1i others who were so active, under
GoD, in the saving of their building from destruc-
tiao by fire, t.:at they will ever hold them in grate-
ful remembrance for the same.

To the Editor cJ the Royal Gazette.
SIr,--Please allow me space in your valuable
Journal to correct a statement which appeaiel in
last Tuesday's issue, concerning the fire at Odd-
Fellows Hall. Itis there stated that "it seems
there wes a r"oeting of some members of the
church in the vestry room on the previous evening,
and it is ge-nerally rapposel that sufficient care
was not tikcn in the kerosene light
used on the occasion."
Now, Sir, that' statement is not correct: the
truth of the matter is, that there was a meeting of
some of the oiMLials of the church (five in number)
on the previous evening', but the meeting was held
in the body of the hall, a:d not in the vestry, and,
the only kerosene lamp used vwa a bracket lamp,
which still remains in the hall where it was left.
This so--alled! vestry is situate in a room that
was partitioned off 7y the boly of Odd-Fellows,
and over which the ChaurI mo:abers have no c'n-
trol, ,ncd thl room =r.l vc.;try is u'el alike by the
boly of OJu-Fsllow.3 il churche members; and
on strict inquiry it has bLen ascertained that there
had been no ligrht ia ti.t roo:a or vestry, and in
fact the room had not been usol at all, since the
previous Wednvslly cvr- ing, when it was u:acd by
the body of Odd-Follow2 who had a light there
That the fire wa:s the work of an incendiary
there can be but little doubt, especially when tho
position of the fire when discover e is considered,
and it is believed if tf'.= matter was fairly and
thoroughly ivesAilg.itl by tho body of Odd-Fel-
lows, it would be traced nearer home than'they
would care to see it.
Yours truly,
June 23rd, 1881.
