"A Pembroke Churchman" stated in your issue
of 25th October that "objections were strongly
made to the erection of the Apse (in St. John's)
and that innovations had since followed one ano-
ther incessantly." By referring to the Book of
Minutes calling the Taxpayers to consider it, it
appears that eighteen attended, all of whom were
Parishioners, including the author and seconder of
'the celebrated "amendment," and no doubt your
correspondent also; and the Resolve to build it was
unanimous, and moreover, a vote of thanks was
passed to the" R.E. officer for the beautiful plan,"
which does not look as if "objections were very
strongly made." It was built by private subscrip -
tonfor the greater accommodation of the Clergy
aend the communicants, who were crowded in a
small and inconvenient space. The beautiful and
appropriate memorial windows to the Bishop and
ctr, ind others,i as well as the new Communion
tahe and Chancel rail, were no expense to the
Parish. .As to the "innovations that followed," I
leave the the congregation to determine how far the
said Chuuchman has drawn upon his imagination.
When it became necessary to remove the old de-
cayed pews, Governor Lefroy and Admiral Welles-
ley offered to replace theirs by fine walnut pews at
their own expense, which was accepted, and the
Vestry deserved the thanks of the congregation for
thlnse necessary works. Being no further need for
the Clerks' desk, (having no Clerks now-a-days) it
was removed to accommodate the crowds that often
assemble around the Font at our numerous bap-
tiems. Can these be called "innovations to pro-
duce heart burnings and dissension ?"I The only
conceivable answer is, that after dreaming of "our
much loved old England, he waked up out of
sleep, and came out boldly to meet the enemy." I
think he must have been hard up for something to
be offended at, and in his allusion to his Pastor has
"flown the course" to

DI)a Sin,-A short time ago, the attention of
the Public was drawn through your columns to the
great improvement which had been made in the
yard surrounding Devonshire Parish Church, and
it looks very nice; but I would call the attention
of. those interested, to the condition of the walls
enclosing the Graveyard, which owing to the Pub-
licrToa being raised, and the Graveyard filling up,
are now in great part so little above the ground as
to be no protection, and being on the main tho-
roughfare of this part of this part of the island, shows great
neglect on the part of the Church Vestry, the more
so, as in all the other burying places neither care
nor expense seem to be spared in keeping them
in good order. Devonshire Graveyard is one of the
oldest in the country, and contains the burying
places bof many families who now reside in other
Parishes, who, I have no doubt, would gladly con-
tribuaeo to make the place where their forefathers
sleeh secure against intrusion, the Vestry being
either unwilling or unable to do it themselves.
It is to be hoped that some steps will be taken
by those interested, to raise the necessary funds to
make this old and hallowed ground at least respect-
able, and to this no one will contribute more wil-

Az QEwi WAXr.-Captain T. Williams, of the
Brigantine Dauntless, who arrived on Tuesday from
Bangor, brought to our office a large portion of the
figure-head of a vessel which he picked up in lati-
tude 41 North, 66 West. It represents the head of
a woman, nicely carved, painted white, with the
hair made up in Grecian style and banded with two
strings of beads. The barnacles on it were only
just forming indicating that it had not been long in
the water. When first seen by Captain Williams
it wa floating face up and conceiving that it was
the head of a human being he put out his boat and
brought it on board. There was a large number of
barrels of kerosene oil floating in the irna ediate
vicinity of the head, but as a dense fog set in Capt.
W., did not like to risk the safety of his crew and
boat in endeavoriag to pick some of it up.
The new roof on the cupola of St. Peter's cathe-
dral, it Rome, is divided into sixteen sections, each
one requiring 1,000,000 pounds of lead. It was
begue seventeen years ago, and will not be finish-
ed for two years longer.
t Bailey's Bay Amateur Theatricals.
On Thursday evening last the third and conclud-
ing performance of War to the Knife and the
well-known farce "Betsy Baker was brought
to a most successful and brilliant finish. Never
has this popular and highly talented club of ama-
teurs been so eminently fortunate in the production
and choice of its pieces as on the present occasion;
the opening drama was one well calculated to bring
out the individual talent of each member and the suc-
cess that attended their performance clearly proves
the truth of the usual stage instructions, that the
success of any piece mainly depends on the happy
and judicious selection of the caste of the charac-
ters. The play itself is a highly artistic composi-
tion, and requires much delicacy and nicety of ren-
dering to bring out the pathos and feeling of the
more emotional parts. Miss Belle Despard, as the
young and interesting widow left in the world after
a years wretched endurance of married misery, and
. solicitous that the conjugal happiness of her dearest
friend should not be marred as her own had been,
cannot be too highly complimented for her correct
and clever rendering of so difficult a r6le. Miss
Annie Wilkinson as the young and affectionate
wife was a charming character well sustained, and
most gracefully' carried out to the end. Miss
Somner and Miss Inez Wilkinson as the pretty and
pert maids of their fashionable mistresses, added
much to the vivacity and piquancy of the play, by the
energy and spirit which they threw into their gay
and smart repartees exchanged with the love-strick-
en Nubbly, the familiar and impertinent green-
grocer. Mr. Melville Outerbridge as Nubbly kept
the house in a continual state of explosive merri-
ment; his comic affection, his drunken effrontery,
the droll and ludicrous expressions with which he
threw in the humorous by-play, was very good and
gained for him the hearty plaudits of the company
on each appearance. Dr. "Wilkinson as the smooth-
tongued fashionable ruffian, bent on a course of vice
and profligacy, and slowly but surely dragging the
easy-going and unsuspecting husband of Mrs.
Harcourt to ruin, was a faithful and finished de-
lineation of character carefully studied and finely
acted. Mr. Dougal as the honest hearted generous
friend of the family forgetful of self, bent only on
extricating at any cost, his friends from utter ruin,
was all that could be desired and harmonized well
with the other actors in the piece. Mr. Skinner was
good as Harcourt, and played -the off handed easy
going young pleasure seeking husband very hearti-
ly. The Tableaux were well managed, graceful and
natural. The pretty little stage was charmingly
furnished. The music (vocal and instrumental) was
highly appreciated. We all know the laughable
little farce of Betsy Baker and as often as we have
seen it we do not remember to have ever been more
pleased and gratified by .the play than we were at
Bailey's Bay. Miss Edith Wilkinson was perfect
as the buxom Betsy-Mr. Outerbridge and Mr.
Dougal as Mouser and Crummy were admirable ;
while Miss Annie Wilkinson was a charming Miss
Mouser. We always spend a most enjoyable even.
ing and the pleasant hospitality of "Ellerslie"
ere we haste home to our office and our work will
long linger in our memory as one of the pleasantest
features of our visit.
Excelsior Amateur Dramatic Club.
On Wednesday evening last, the members of
THE EXCELsion AximTon DRAMATIC CLUB gave their
first performance in the Mechanics' Hall. The
pieces selected were Buckstone's Farce, entitled
Make your Wills," andthe" Spectre Bridegroom."
The hall is now well suited for such a purpose. Its
acoustic properties are excellent, and a good roomy
stage has been erected for theatrical performances.
On Wednesday night a full house awaited the rise
of the curtain; and the young amateurs pleased
their audience from beginning to end. Both pieces
went well; and as all worked so successfully it is
difficult to select to select any one performer for special
mention. Mr. C. G. O'Neil, however, as Joseph
Brag in the first piece and Squire Aldwinkle in the
second shewd shewed that he was no novice in the art
of Amateur Acting. The Squire's confidential
servant, Dickory, to whom so many liberties are
allowed, fully availed himself of them; and his
fright, whenever l-i- supposed ghost appeared kept
the audience in a roar of laughter. By kind per-
mission of Colonel Adams and the Officers, a goodly
number of the band of the Royal Irish Rifles was
In attendance, and performed selections during the
evening. THE ExceiosRs have been requested to
repeat their performances,-and they have arranged
to do so on Tuesday 22nd inst. See advertisement.
We would recommend all those who did not go on
Wednesday to go on the 22nd, as they can count
on being amused.
15TH COMPANY, R.E., DRnA.TI RAND MusacAi CLUB
gave a performance on 5th, and two more on 12th
and 14th inst. The pieces played were Boots at
the Swan" and "Nobody's child." Asto to the
farce, we shall not comment upon, as we believe
it was placed on the stage under difficulties. Of
the Drama we can only say, that if Messrs. Car-
rington, Smith, Knott and Dowker, had received
better support from the other characters, the Drama
would have been a success. This Company is yet
in its infancy, only two of its members-we were
irformed-ever appearing on a stage before. We
hope these few remarks will not discourage them,
as we believe there is talent among them, and for
want of confidence was not brought out. We hope
they will perform again ere long and give us a lit-
tle "show." Mr R. Brown arranged and conduct-
ed the music with his usual ability, and the strains
of the string Band were apparently much enjoyed.
"AN IMPORTANT INVENTION."-In another column
of the present issue of the Gazette, will be found,
under the above caption-copied from the Brook-
lyn (N.Y.) Daily Eagle of the 23rd October-the
report of the operations of a truly important in-
vention of Mr. H. P. Kirkham, second son of the
late George K. Kirkham, Esq., formerly an over-
seer in H. M. Convict Establishment in these Is-
lands, and whose rudimentary education was ob-
tained here under the late Mr. T. D. Ponham. The
invention is a coffer dam of such peculiar con-
struction as enables repairs to be made to large
vessels, either steamers or others, most expeditious-
ly and without the expense of removal from
where she might lay in her loading berth or else-
where, without even the formality of castingWoff a
line, and whether she is loaded, in ballast trim or
otherwise. The expense of repairs by means of
this coffer dam is not more than the fortieth
part of what it would under the usual process.
Doubtless this invention will be a source of great
profit to Mr. Kirkham and we heartily wish him
the full enjoyment of all the honor and emolument
which may be derived from his scientific ingenuity.
ONTAnIO BusINESS COLLEGE.-In our advertiz-
ing columns to-day appears a notice of the Onta-
rio Business College" of Belville, Ontario, Canada,
to which we ask attention. From among many
notices which have appeared in the Canada papers
relative to this College, we take the following from
the Kingston Whig, not alone for its brevity and
being to the point, but from its appearing in a paper
which is most reliable and trustworthy :-" We
know the value of the College, KNOW THAT YOUNG MEN
IN OUR SERVICE HAVE RECEIVED A SPLENDID BUSINESS
TRAniwi nIN T, and can commend it to the con-
sideration of young men. More can be learned in
it in three months, from practical competent men
than in the service of some men in as m any years.'

The Royal Mail Steamer Alpha, Captain Crowell,
from Jamaica, arrived at St. Georges on Wednesday
evening last, and left for Halifax soon after noon

In addition to our exchange files, Captain Crow-

papers of the latest dates.
JAMAIcA.-On Tuesday evening, October 25th,
one hundred and forty-seven men of the 2nd West
India Regiment, under command of Major Mat-
thews, embarked at Kingston, Jamaica, on board
the Royal Mail Steamer "Para" for Barbados to
relieve tke 4th Kings Own now stationed there. The
officers that accompanied the Detachment were
Major Matthews, (in command), Major Sheppard,
Lieut. Skellon, and Lieut. Barley.
The steamer "Alps" left Kingston, Jamaica, on
the 1st instant for New York, with a cargo of 7,129
barrels oranges. Another steamer was soon to
leave which would bring the exports of that fruit
for the fortnight up to between 30,000 and 40,000.
Barrels of a very inferior kind were selling at King-
ston at 25/ per dozen.
It is said that the Government of Jamaica has
been offered to Sir Henry Irving.

200 cars, twelve locomotives, two pontoons, two
steam cranes, eighteen flatboats, two dredges, rails,
&c., a part of which is at Colon and the remainder
on its way. At Colon the storehouses cover an
area of 1,400 metres and are full. Five barges and
two steamboats are plying upon the Chagres River.
Another steamer at Panama is used for the hydro-
graphic surveys of the Bay. The buildings are be-
ing pushed rapidly. At Orlin a sawmill has been
operating for some time. The dry dock has been
frequently used. Between Matachia and Paraiso,
bridges have been built over torrents, and at Gatun
everything is ready for making a large inland port.
There is no lack of laborers to be procured from
the adjoining provinces.
BARBADOS.-The Herald of the 10th October says:

Army Hospital Corps have also died. The epidem-

Royal Gaol is also unwell.
It is a somewhat strange coincidence, says the
Trinidad New Era, that while the malignant fever
which troubles us so, is at its work, a disease in
our cattle marked by an abnormal enlargement of
the spleen and kidneys, and consequent inflamma-
tion of the bladder, renders unfit for food many
oxen slaughtered for market. Can the authorities,
in such matters say whether there is any connec-
tion between the type of this cattle sickness and
that by which the better classes of our people suf-
fer so at this season ? During the past week the
carcasses of no less than 5 oxen were taken to the
market, and there condemned by the Medical In-
spector as being unfit for food, through the inci-
dent we have named.

Dr. Crane the Surgeon General of Trinidad con-
tinued for some time in opposition to the opinions of
five or six skilled physicians and of the press of the
place, that yellow fever did not exist in the Colony,
although it was mowing down its victims freely,

under his authority; till at last Dr. Crane himself
took the prevailing disease and being treated as a
case of yellow fever he mercifully escaped death.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR MR. EDITon.-The late meeting held in the
Town Hall, Hamilton, to ascertain, if possible, the
causes which led to the low, almost ruinous, prices
obtained for the agricultural products of last sea-
son, and to provide a remedy for the future, has
led to the publication of many valuable opinions
and views in the columns of the Gazette. I attend-
ed the meeting, and although I did not take an
active part, I felt probably as deep an interest in
it as those who did.-The scope and intentions of
the Resolutions, prepared by a few gentlemen and
submitted to the meeting have, no doubt, been
carefully weighed and considered, and perhaps un-
derstood by the public.-I do not intend to find
fault with what has been done or in any way to
condemn it, on the contrary I am willing to assist
in that or any other suggestion which promises a
remedy, but I would warn planters not to expect
too much from this scheme.
We have, Mr. Editor, in our midst and within
our own reach, difficulties to contend with of suffi-
cient magnitude to startle us into prompt and de-
termined action in self defence, and when those are
corrected we may with better hope look abroad.
I propose to draw the attention of planters to
two of these, and to point out what appears to me
to be the proper course to pursue in regard to
The Gulf Port Company receives a subsidy of
2,000 a year, and in addition demands a higher
rate of freight on our produce to New York than is
paid anywhere else. At present we pay 60 cts. a
bbl. for potatoes, 20 cts. a crate for onions, and 10
cts. a box (equal to 140 a bbl.) for tomatoes-40
cts. a bbl. for potatoes, 15 cts. for onions, and 5
cts. for tomatoes is as much as should be paid, and
would be fairly remunerative to the carrier. The
present exorbitant rates of freight should be the
subject of a petition to the Board of Public Works,
who would no doubt place itself in correspondenee
with the G. P. Company, with a view to its reduc-
tion, and if no good result should follow, the bet-
ter class of planters should unite and provide for
themselves the means of conveying their goods to
market. This can be easily done, is well within
the means of a few of the planters, and will be
found remunerative to them in more ways than
one, but it should be done promptly.
The large shed from which the subsidized steam-
er loads is given out in sections by the Corporation
to some fifteen persons, most of whom act as agents
for New York marketmen, either as purchasers for
or shippers to them, or both, for which they receive
from 21 to 5 per cent. on the gross sales of the pro-
duce shipped to New York. These persons are the
virtual owners of the shed, to the exclusion of all
others, and being owners of the shed they com-
mand the freight accommodation of the peoples'
steamer, as no goods can go in the steamer except
through the shed.
Being employed by the New York marketmen
these agents receive their orders from them, and no
doubt are guided by them, and purchase the goods
at the price fixed by their employers. The planter
is obliged to take whatever may be offered him be-
cause his produce is kept out of the shed and con-
sequently out of the steamer. He cannot ship it
himself to his friends in New York who may get a
better price and save 5 per cent. besides but he
must ship it to one of the ring in New York
through one of the ring under the shed. It is easy
to see that the New York men, with the assistance
of those employed here, control the shed, control
the steamer, control the price, and have the plant-
ers entirely at their mercy.
The Bermuda Almanac gives the value of pro-
duce shipped to the United States last year (80) at
about 70,000. This I take to be the amount re-
ceived by the owners in Bermuda; add to this
20,000 you will obtain 90,000, an amount ap-
proximating to the gross sales in New York; five
per cent. of this sum was probably received by the
shed holders in Hamilton, 3,600. No wonder
these gentlemen (some of whom are members of the
Corporation) say that the present disposition of the
shed is the best that can be made. It gives to
them a handsome sum for a few weeks' work to
the serious injury of the planter and perhaps to
the ultimate ruin of the principal Industry of the
Island. The favored one to whom a section or two
of the shed is given has an excellent investment
which costs him nothing and if he should have no-
thing or little to ship from it himself may farm it
out with handsome profit.
The sheds were erected, as the Act of the Legis-
lature says, for the purpose of protecting Island
Produce during the period of shipment," but if I
should send '1000 crates of onions to Hamilton for
shipment, I cannot ship them because I cannot put
them under the shed because no portion of it is al-
lotted to me, although Smith, Jones and Robinson
each have a section partially filled or perhaps emp-
ty. This was not the intention of the Legislature.
The management of the shed is intrusted to the
Corporation and very properly so. I have no doubt
that that body would listen to any suggestion cal-
culated to produce better or more satisfactory re-
sults than are experienced under the present sys-
tem. It would no doubt be difficult to propose any
plan for the management of the sheds that would
be free from objection, but it would be even more
difficult to propose a plan more objectionable than
the one now in use.
I have thought it over carefully and have come
to the conclusion that the planters should petition
the Corporation to throw the sheds open to the
Public. Place receiving clerks there to receive and
receipt for each truck load as it arrives and when-
ever a sufficient quantity has been receipted for to
load the steamer to keep it apart from the cargo of
the next steamer and so on. In this way the
owner or planter may ship his own goods, to his
own agents, and not be compelled to make his
business known to other persons or to sell his goods
at any price that may be offered him. The comrn-
mission now paid to the middle man would also be
There will perhaps be a very determined opposi-
tion offered to this change by the Onion brokers
along front street, but I am persuaded that the
Mayor and majority of the Corporation are willing
to do in this matter what they believe to be best
calculated to promote the general interest. If
something is not done to break up the existing
combination, or in other words if the fate of the
agricultural industry of the colony is left to the
mercy of the New York marketmen, in a few years
no honest or respectable person will be able to live
I have endeavored to be brief, Mr. Editor, but I
am afraid I have trespassed on you and perhaps
also on the patience of your readers. I have still
much to say and if I find that the public favor my
suggestions I shall venture to call on you again.
November 14th, 1881.
To the Editor of the .oyal Gazette.
DEAR ME. EDITOR. -I dare say both you and
your readers remember that I promised a couple of
weeks back to gather what sporting intelligence I
could and furnish some hints as to the probable
winners of this meeting. The weather has been
rather warm for real hard work but in spite of the
heat energetic jocks and trainers have been busy
with their nags on the course. By the bye talking
of training I must tell you of a capital idea I pick.
ed up the other day, while seeing the horses at
their exercise, of procuring at the shortest notice a
perfect specimen of the skeleton horse; first ride
your horse down to the course worrying him the
while with heel and bit in order to fret him as
much as possible, then take him hot and excited on
to the course and to cool his ardor walk him jauns
tily, that is, with prancings and curvettings, fifteen
times round the half mile, when you find your horse
is completely done up and pumped plunge your
spurs deep in his heaving flanks and gallop the
poor brute four times calling to him kindly and
affectionately "steady now," "get on," "come
up," and such like encouragements, probably it
will now be drawing towards the "shades of eve"
but heed not the gathering gloom nor the retreat
of the admiring crowd of spectators, proceed with
more walking exercise to cool the noble steed
your energy and preseverance (oh noble trait of
character!) has trained so perfectly. Of course you
must take into consideration the enterprising sports
man's keen enjoyment of the ordeal and if you are
thoughtful and kind you will also ask your nag
what he thinks of the process. Mais a nos youtorn
I really do not think that half the interest is diss
played this year as was apparent last season, my
list of entries must therefore be comparatively
small. As usual our old friend Mr. Lane heads
the lead with Starlight and a new stable companion
Eclipse; both horses are being most carefully train-
ed and under Mr. Skinner's skilful pilotage will
probably sail to victory. Of course the nags will
not be pitted one against the other and I think it
probable that Mr. Lane finding Starlight will
be too heavily weighted to run with safety to the
horse or the jock, will content himself with two
full penalty races for the chestnut and carry the
handicap with the new horse. Eclipse is really a
very fast horse but rumors are afloat that his legs
dent stand the heavy ground and that he has been
lame slightly after his gallops; under these circume
stances we cannot expect to see him often at Shelly
Bay but rest assured his trainer, his groom and his
jock will have him "fit as a fiddle" on the day of
the race, and my advice to all who ride with him is
dent get behind him for if you do you will never
lead him again. There is a rumor that Mr. Hussey
will enter his new gray for the hurdles but as yet
she has not been on the course but she is a Detty
animal with plenty of pluck and fire and looks as
if she might gallop. From St. George's I hear that
young Mr. Lane has Comet in training and the old
stager the other day held his own very fairly with
Starlight for a lead. Col. Newport is reported to
have a very fast pony but its performances are at
present kept so dark that no one has seen anything
of it. Sultan who Mr. O'Connell so cleverly steered
to glory in the Maiden Stakes last year is giving
a great deal of trouble in training and continues to
bolt the course as often as he gets a chance, but
the horse is undoubtedly fast and with good riding
is likely to win again. Mr. Dudley Hollis has a
new horse Figaro and Mr. W. S. 0. Peniston seems
to be getting capital work out of him, I should say
he ought to do something in the Maiden or St.
George's Stakes. Souvenir and his stable companion
little Bombadier are in capital condition and Mr.
T. H. Outerbridge has high hopes of carrying off
the St. George's Stakes again this year. I hear
of nothing from Prospect or Somerset, evidently
Soldier has had enough of the turf and has been
put on the shelf. Dexter and Jack time honoured
veterans are out of the fun and must be content to
yield the palm to younger rivals. Dr. P. B. Tuck-
er intendsto to try Lady Gray at the hurdles and I
think stands as good a chance as any of the fencers.
Mr. S. A. Smith has a good horse in Star but bad
training with too much hard work has knocked
everything out of him, and to do anything now he
must improve greatly. Mr. Skinner may run a
little chestnut pony named ?/uby, she gallops well
but with hardly speed enough to win. Dick has
irtired. The condition of the course is far from
satisfactory and wants lots of attention especially
at the western lap and also on the south eastern
turn which is rocky and uneven. As events trans-
pire you may hear again from
Yours very faithfully,
JAKELr IN RuINs.-It is certainly remarkable
that one of the most fertile spots in the West Indies,
with excellent harbours and a considerable popu-
lation, should still remain a wilderness. Mr. Vice-
Consul Wyndham has just sent home his report
upon the trade and commerce of Jacmel, and a
more disheartening picture was surely never drawn.
He says that everything is left to nature. The
coffee plants have grosn into trees, the fruit trees
are not pruned, there is no attempt made to im.
prove properties, and but little is done to cultivate
the land. Nearly every vegetable can be grown in
its rich soil, yet horticulture is unknown. There
are no public institutions; a hospital exists, but it
is roofless: no doctor attends there, nor is there any
medicine administered without fees. No charitable
institutions exist; the insane run about the streets
dependent on the charity of the public; the blind
and poor have no home nor support of any kind.
The lighthouse has fallen into ruin; the break-
water, commenced at a cost of 7,000, has never
been finished'; for the want of a landing stage all
goods run the risk of being damaged in the surf,
and when they get to the shore there are no sheds
to protect the perishable portion of them. In Jac-
mel, a town of 8,000 inhabitants, beef is only pro-
curable occasionally, and although within fifteen
minutes ride from the town, there are places where
an ample supply of salt for the district could be
made, the inhabitants prefer to pay 4s. 2d. a bushel
duty for imported salt, rather than work the re-
sources at hand. This does not say much for the
enterprise of the commercial element of Jacmel,
but is not the picture a little overdrawn ?
Colorado, the youngest ofthe States oftbe Union,
has now 850 miles of railroad under contract, and
has just been celebrating the opening of a 200 mile
branch which completes a line 460 miles lonr,
reaching from Denver to the Arkansas Valley, in
the extreme southwestern portion of the State.

DBERMUADA OYAL GAZETTE.
From the eworof, th World, October 16.
MR. VILLIEWS ATTAR1T, M.P., ON THE
PRESENT STATE OF IRELAND.
The present condition of parts of the country
whot the Land League's influence is overpower-
ing- was feelingly expressed by Mr. Villiers Stuart,
c.i the yillierAtown Sessions, in giving a de-
cisitl upon a1Boycttiig case. 'As an Irishman,"
i ,. having dkegly at heart 'he welfare, pro-
ress and p osperity of my country, I have
seen with sorrow the liberties of my fellow-country-
men trampled underfoot by a system of terrorism
scarcely paralleled in any country in Europe since
the ays of the Freuch Revolution. Liberty means
th (fIe4m1of a m.tn to trkinr antiact as he pleases
aWak tI h1ld what-olinion he likes, and to do what he
likes, so long as he respects the rights and interests
of his fellow-citizens and does not disobey the Law.
But what is the state of things that has now been
established ? Why, that no man dare open his
mouthh or express an opinion unless it is in accord-
ance with the views of the dominant party." The
fact which are reported every day exemplify the
existing tyranny. It is not a question of Liberals
and Conservatives, for men of all political opinions
are placed under the ban. A landlord, writing to
a daily paper, says that "much as the farmers may
wish to except the new law, and come to an under-
standing with their landlords, they are perfectly
helpless in the face of the teroriam exercised by the
League throughout the country." In proof, he
74a4 "In one part of my property the tenants ask-
< d to have writs served upon them, as they did not
dare to pay unless under compulsion, for fear of
being made the victims of some outrage." Mr.
Gladstone and his colleague have conquered from
the landlord interest all that had been demanded in
justice to Irish farmers-fair rents, fixity.of tenure
and compensation; nevertheless the barbarities,
Shootings, burnings and mutilations go on as fierce-
ly as ever. The object being the disintegation of
the Enmpire, the separation of Ireland from Great
Similar to this is the purpose of the Boers of the
riisvaal. 'They have started an agitation outside
their own territory for the establishment of a South
African Republic, which is said to have me t with
some favor already among the Dutch population
in Cape Colony and Natal, who see in it the ele-
ments of a force which might give their race supre-
macy from Simon's Bay to the Limpopo. An in-
dependent Dutch Republic already exists in the
Orange free State; let another and a greater be
at once established, and the severance from South
Africa from the British Empire will be on the high
road towards accomplishment." This is the object
at which the Boers are now aiming, even as the
Irish malcontents hope to make their demonstrations
instrumental in founding an Irish Rebublic. For
the peace of this country it is well that Mr. Glad-
stone, whilst true to the double cause of justice and
freedom. is resolved to repress that violent spirit
'thafhas created a reign of terror in Ireland.

DEAR SIR,-I have used your INDIAN BLOOD
SYRUP with great satisfaction and relief. I have
been afflicted with catarrh for a long time, could
get no relief, until I commenced using the BLOOD
SYRUP. I was about to give it up because imme-
diately after taking it made me dizzy and feel badly,
but on consulting a physician was informed that it
was caused by the medicine restoring my imperfect
circulation and acting on the diseased matter in my
stomach, caused by the droppings of the catarrh
matter. I invariably found, however, that this dizzy
feeling soon passed away, my nervous system was
tranquilized, and the catarrhal poison removed by
the medicine. 1 have been entirely cured by your
invaluable remedy. i

Great progress has been made within a tew
years in manufacturing food products, and the
standard of quality has been raised to a point far
beyond that which formerly obtained. We claim

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
