TO OUR READERS.
With the present issue we close the fifty-fourth
volume of the Royal Gazette, and conclude our own
term offifty-four years,less one week, connection with
its publication. It has been our endeavour during
that long period to present a fair and dispassionate
view of a kinds of news, while chronicling local
occurrences to make our readers acquainted with
the outside world in a general and accurate way.
Our columns have been open to all shades of opini-
on on the almost innumerable lot of subjects which
are brought under public discussion, and it has
been our aim to preserve such moderation in argu-
ment, as is best calculated to secure beneficial re-
sults. The Royal Gazette has played no unimport-
ant part in the progress of these Islands, and its
columns will in the future be consulted for evidence
of how that has been attained. In a limited com-
munity the duty of an Editor is no easy one, and
relatively the position is a much more difficult one
to fill than in a large life teaming district, where
an engrossed and growing population can be much
more easily catered to, because of the material
available and the inducements which a large circu-
lation and liberal advertising afford. We have
striven to fulfil our duty to the public, to our sup-
porters and to ourselves; and, if in any way we
have come short of it, it has been from no want of
desire on our part to carry out our good intentions.
To our subscribers and advertisers we return our
thanks for the public support they have afforded
us, and we appeal to our record as an earnest of
our future intentions to merit an increase of pub-
lic favour and patronage. It shall be our endeav-
or tosustain the established reputation of the "Roy-
al Gazette" as a popular advocate worthy of the
support of Bermudians both at home and abroad.
We tender all our patrons the Compliments of
the Season, and in our next issue, when the Holi-
day Season will be on the wane, we shall present
our customary Analysis of the chronicles of 1881
that the year may be considered as a whole in re-
gard to its general influences on the current of

state. b1 the tug-boat Reiance. No si ekn as was on
board though the Quarantine flag was flying. The E.
F, left New York on the 8th inst., and soon after
encountered heavy weather, when she began to leak,
the leak hourly increased and when she arrived
had 9 feet of water in her hold; her crew, from in *
c~assant working at the pumps being quite exhausted.,
had to get a gang from the shore to work at the
pumds to keep her afloat. On the 17th inst when
scudding, during a tempest, a sea broke over her stern.,
carrying away the wheel and the wheel-house, as well
an the man at the wheel-an able seaman named
Gregeni Salva. a native ol Cuba,-who was drowned.
The same sea fell into the cabin which opened aft and
bursted open the sides. The E. F., when being
towed into Castle Harbour-then drawing 18 feet of
water-struck the bottom, the tide was only half up at the
time. On Sunday the 18th instant the E. F., then
aboutl3 miles in a South Easterly direction of Bermuda
fill in with a waterlogged barque, dismasted and aband-
oned. Blowing hard at the time could not ascertain
her nationalilty.--Agent, J. S. Darrell.

MAuINE DISASTEI.-Captain Olsen of the Nor-
wegian Barquintine Lorna, of Grimdtead, who ar-
rived here on Friday last from Cardiff, with coals
for Government reports as follows, viz.: on Thurs-
day, 22nd December, at 10 a.m., when distant from
Bermuda 130 miles in a southwest by west direction,
fell in with the wreck of American Schr. IV. G.
Moseley, of Boston, totally dismasted and water-
logged, only a small portion of the forward house
was standing, the forward part of cabin house
was completely stove in, boat and davit tackles were
gone, as also her deckload, wheel looked perfect,
one of her masts was floating alongside, with a lot
of other wreckage. Captain Olsen, thinks from the
condition of the vessel, that the crew had left in
+heir boat for some passing ship.
The WV. G. Moseley was a vessel of 209 tons, hail-
ing from Boston. She sailed from Jacksonville on
2nd inst., with 151,000 feet p. p. lumber for ac-
count of Mr. S. S. Ingham, of this town. This
vessel was referred to in our last issue as blown off
from the Islands during the storm of 16th inst.
Mr. Atticus Brangham, Branch Pilot of Somer-
set, was on board the IW. G. M. in his capacity of
INQUEST.- On Thursday night last, the Worship-
ful T. Roberts, Esq., Police Magistrate, received in-
formation that a married colored woman, named
Thurza Elizabeth McKay, living on St. David's
Island, had been delivered of a male child during
the previous 24 hours, and had no attendance at the
birth, and that the child died under suspicious cir-
cumstances when a few hours old. The Police Ma-
istrate at once communicated the circumstance to
Dennis Tucker, Esq., Coroner for the district. On
receiving the information, the Coroner accompanied
by Dr. C. H. Butterfield, Health Officer, proceeded
to St. David's Island and examined the child; aft. r
the examination it was decided to have a further
investigation. On the following morning an In-
quest was held and the Jury, of which John Cox
Rankin, Esq., was Foreman, after making a care-
ful investigation returned the following Verdict,
" That Thurza Elizabeth McKay, the mother of the
said new-born male child, on the 22nd day of De-
cember in the year aforesaid, the said male child did
bring forth of her body alive, unexpectedly, and
that the said new born male child then died soon
after its birth, in a natural way, and not from any
violence, hurt or injury received from the said
Thurza Elizabeth McKay, its mother, or any other
person, to the knowledge of the said Jurors; nor
had the said new born male child any marks of
violence appearing on his body.
An Inquest was held at the Town Hall, St.
George's, on the 26th inst., before Dennis Tucker,
Esq., Coroner, on view of the body of John Robin-
son, late a colored labourer in St. Georges parish,
who died suddenly in the night, before receiving
medical aid. After examining the body Dr. C. W.
T. Smith and others, the Jury returned a verdict of
death from "Inatural causes."'
R. I. R. MINSTREL TROUPE
Gave two performances at Spar Yard, Theatre,
Ireland Island on 21st and 22nd instant. The first
part was very successfully got through, and was
much appreciated by the audience. Sergt.-Bugler
W. F. Cheesman was as ludicrous as ever, and
caused roars of laughter by his mimicry and im-
personations. His two sons, Frank and Alfred as
representatives of the British Army in The Run-
away Musketeers," acquitted themselves very cre-
ditably, they havingbeenwell trained. The farce was
very well got through, with BandsmanA. Soutter,
like Starlight"-making the whole of the running
for the other members of the Troupe-kept the au-
dience in a titter from beginning to end. We hope
to see this well selected troupe at the Spar Yard
again before long, and we are given to understand
they anticipate performing shortly at St. George's.
In Hamilton the Ordnance Store Corps celebra-
ted this festive season in a manner worthy of note.
Their quarters were very handsomely decorated
with flags and evergreens. Dinner was served at
2 p. m.; at which hour Commissary-General
Ralph, accompanied by Dr. Ogilvie, P.M.O. and
Quarter Master Drake (Commanding Des.) arrived.
They expressed their satisfaction at the elaborate
decorations and sumptuous repast which was pro-
vided, and toasts were exchanged. Many friends
visited the Quarters during the day, and were
cordially welcomed by the Detachment. In the
course of the afternoon Capt. Davis, A.P.D. honor-
ed the men with a visit, and in a few well chosen
words expressed his pleasure at seeing the men so
comfortable and the arrangements so nicely carried
out. The festivities were continued on Boxing
day and we believe all enjoyed a merry Xmas.
[IN MEMORIAM. ]
Alpheus J. Tynes.
A shadow has fallen across our pathway. The dark
angel has invaded our circle and removed from it our
friend and companion; and while we feel as though
some bright, familiar star had been suddenly blotted
out, we have a new realization of the oft-attr-sted truth,
that death is the great leveler, and dust to dust the
heritage of all.
Mr. Tynes, although a native of Bermuda, removed
to New York city in early manhood, and thence to
Nashville. Tenn., where twenty years of his life were
spent. Quiet, unassuming, gentle and kind, with
a heart as warm and genial as his southern Island
home. he drew around him a circle of true and devoted
In the meridian of a manhood that promised many
years of strength and happiness, he was stricken with
relentless disease; and, in the hope that a change of
climate and medical treatment might "kiss back the
roses of health to his paid cheeks"-bidding adieu to
wife and friends, he visited the city of Philadelphia.
But hope proved a deceitful enchantress, and human
agencies powerless to arrest the ravages of disease,
and in the calm and quiet of an autumn Sabbath morn-
ing in'that far-off city, surrounded by newmade friends,
and the recipient of every kindly office, he yielded up
his life to its Author, and folded his arms in everlast-
We shall miss him from our communions and listen
in vain for the music of a footfall that will not return
to gladden our hearts.
But alas 1 how desolate the heart of her between
whom and him the cycle of years had wrought an un-
broken current of devotion, and while she turns to that
sacred mound on the sunny slope of Olivet" and la-
ments that she was not permitted, as a last office of
affection, to wipe from his eyes the dew of dissolv-
ing nature, let her remember that the Master's loving
hand has wiped away all tears from his eyes' and
that after life's fitful fever he slept well **4

Mrecum, and its comparatively cheap price places it
within general reach. The compilation has been
carefully revised up to the time of publication, and
it will be found to embody the latest and most re-
liable information on the Bermudas. From the
present edition the Catalogues of Fishes, Shells,
Birds and Plants have been omitted as it was found
that their insertion would have inconveniently
swelled the bulk of the volume. Those who are de-
sirous of securing these valuable catalogues will
find them carefully revised in the Almanack 1881.
Should the requirements of Tourists justify their
publication they may be issued at a later period as
a Supplement to the Almanack 1882, at a reason-
able cost. Enterprize must be measured relatively.
The labour involved in the compilation of the Al-
manack has been much greater in every way than
it would be in a large community, first in the diffi-
culty of collecting reliable matter and because its
necessity is not readily apparent, second because of
the contracted mechanical appliances available, and
third because of the limited circulation which pro-
portionally enhances cost even with every economy.
In the management of the Almanack year after year
many improvements have been introduced, which
the proprietor has been enabled to do through the
able and kind assistance of several contributors, and
an attempt has been made to keep pace with the
advancing requirements of the day. The proprietor
has been assured that his efforts have not been in
vain, and the Almanack for 1882 will bear favour-
able comparison with that of 1881. To residents it
is a first necessity, such for instance as the Arrival
and Despatch of Mails the list of various Public
Officers, Charitable and other Societies, the Agri-
cultural Calendar, Import and Export Tables, &c.,
&c. To the Tourist the Handy Guide must serve
as a General Key to the Island, facilitating the
progress of the time tied explorer, and opening up
to those whose residence may be prolonged many a
gratifying excursion which might not otherwise be
readily found. This section has been one of slow
growth, but its general use and appreciation by
those who have consulted it has caused its gradual
enlargement to its present dimensions, the real
difficulty being to restrain within handy limits es-
sential information, rather than to expand into a
bulky and not easily referred to run of pages. This
section tooto several residents may have appeared
unnecessary, the difficulty being to demonstrate to
them the use of compiling information which to
them may have seemed only too familiar. But the
object of the Almanack is to meet the wants of all
classes, and not of any one only. While the Guide
may therefore be wholly acceptable to strangers in
these Islands, it is to be hoped that it may occa.
sionally prove interesting and even useful to those
who have long been reckoned on the permanent list.
Let us scan the Contents of the Almanack. Passing
over the list of Eclipses, &c., we come to the Mail
Arrangements and find them classified conveniently
and clearly. On pages 9 and 10 will be found the
Time Tables Arrivals and Departures of the Cunard
and Quebec Steamships. Then follow the regular.
tions of the Money Order System and Savings
Bank. The Calendar with full information, lists of
the Council and Assembly and the Government
Officers, Courts, Justices of the Peace, Corpora-
tions of Hamilton and St. Georges, Officers of Va-
rious Public Trusts, Clergy List, Church and Cha-
ritable Societies. The Army and Navy with notes
of Services of Officers serving on this Station. Stk-
tistical Tables of Revenue and Expenditure, Rain-
fall, all important in connection with our water sup-
ply, p.p. 145-149. Tabular Statements of Exports
of Bermuda Produce which will be anxiously con-
sulted by all who have the prosperity of Bermuda
at heart. Full tables of The Census 1881 are fur-
nished; total Bermudian Population, 14,314. Sche-
dules of Duties and Acts passed by the Legislature
1881. The Business Directory of Hamilton and St.
George occupies 13 pages, and will be found to
serve a doubly useful purpose, those who are ad-
vertised being made known to those who may need
their services. The Almanack has a fair circulation
beyond the confines of Bermuda, and a knowledge
of its business composition to those abroad is of
importance. A number of Bermudians and their
descendants are scattered about, and there is always
a desire to gather information of their native land,
and the Directory classifies for them a pleasing list.
The Advertisement space, though respectable,
might in proportion to the information matter, be
somewhat larger. Almanacks are a favourite source
of advertising eagerly sought after. Steamship
Companies from the varied circulation of the Al-
manack would find it a very desirable medium. At-
tention has been more directed to perfecting the
subject matter of the Almanack than to soliciting
Advertisements which would too much enlarge the
volume, while a class of advertisements occasion-
ally offered have not been considered desirable to
insert. Every pains have been taken to secure a
volume replete with local information, whichmight
be confidently consulted by all classes both at home
and abroad. Let us glance for a few minutes at the
Tourist's Guide, and discover the nature and ex-
tent of its information. How to be governed when
time is limited-Hamilton to St. Georges, Hamil-
ton to Somerset and Ireland Island. Two Drives
about Hamilton, How to reach Bermuda, Nearing
Bermuda, Entering the Channels, Disembarking,
Inducements to Visit Bermuda; in this section a
few plain facts are set forth. Tourists are very un-
reasonable in their demands frequently, and a cli-
mate made precisely in keeping with their orders
would be indeed a peculiar one. If any visitors to
Bermuda expect that its climate will afford them a
specific dry steady heat for as many days as they
may desire it, they will be doomed to disappoint-
ment. But, if they are satisfied to enjoy what is
current, they will most likely find a number of de-
lightful days, even in rough seasons, for the wea-
ther here no more than elsewhere can be considered
settled, during a reasonable term of residence, that
will prove an invigorating change from Northern
latitudes during their icy term. Lists of Hotels,

Gardener's Calendar which has proved of so much
general value, has been revised with great care, and
the information supplied is in direct keeping with
the best practical experience. In a cursory way
we have endeavored to set forth the varied mass
of information contained within the covers of the
Bermuda Almanack, having on them a convenient
map showing the Public Roads and small Sheet Ca-
lendar We feel that the present issue will compare
favourably with any of its predecessors, both in ty-
pography as well as in accuracy and wide selection
of suitable matter; and that, as an ever ready re-
ference on Bermuda subjects, it will be found of
even hourly benefit by those who are good enough
turn to its pages for information.

ARRIVAL OF THE LORD BISHOP OF NEW-
FOUNDLAND AND BERMUDA.
On the morning of Thursday last the Lord Bishop
of Newfoundland and Bermuda, accompanied by
Mrs. Jones, arrived in the Cunard Royal Mail
Steamship Beta" from Halifax, and took up his
residence at Bishop's Lodge, Cedar Avenue, in this
town, put in order for their reception. We have
no doubt that Churchmen and Bermudians gene-
rally will welcome his Lordship on this his second
visitation to these islands, and the more so because
he brings with him in Mrs. Jones a co-adjutor in
the social routine of duties. This lady will bring to
him a knowledge of Canada from the great Western
Prairies to the Shores of Halifax Harbour, the
great Winter seaport of the Dominion, which must
materially enlarge his field of study, and proportion-
allyimprove his judgement. Coming from a North-
ern latitude His Lordship is braced by a vigorous
climate for his work in this milder latitude of ours ;
and we trust that his sojourn ainong us may prove
gratifying to himself and be the means of affording
an agreeable change of climate, conducive to his
labours in Newfoundland, while ending also to the
furtherance of the best interests to the Church of
England in Bermuda.
On Christmas Day His Lordship preached in
Trinity Church, at the morning Service, discours-
ing with his usual emphasis, on the text-"' Peace
on Earth"-A vitiated humanity now to be puri-
fied by the Heavenly plant of peace alone made
possible in Christ the Lord.
The Churches on Christmas Day exhibited their
usual neat appearance from the floral decorations
which adorned them,

HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.-A Midnight
special Service will be held in this Church on New
Year's Eve, commencing at Eleven o'clock, when a
Sermon will be preached by the Right Revd. Lord
Bishop of the Diocese, and a Collection made in
aid of the Fund for the repairs of the Chancel
Roof. The Holy Communion will be celebrated on
New Year's morning at 8 o'clock, when the offer-
tory will be devoted to the same object.
THE NEW B. M. E. CHURCH, HAMILTON.
The members of this Church are at least to be
commended for their untiring industry which has
at length resulted in the opening of their new build-
ing in this town for religious purposes. Making
every allowance for the zeal manifested usually by
a new sect to establish themselves as firmly and
publicly as possible, we must allow that the pro-
posal, in the first instance, to build a place for B.
M. E. public worship was a heavy undertaking
under the most favourable circumstances. The
lot secured, an eligible corner one, the foundations
in, the walls began to rise, and were in course raised
to their height. The roof was framed and fitted
near by, and the framing was placed on the walls.
Just then when the gables were being finished the
Hurricane of 1880 ruthlessly invaded it, carrying
away roof-timbers and gable walls, and otherwise
damaging the structure. Here assuredly was
discouragement in the face of the many losses in-
curred by that Hurricane. But those who set
themselves to the work determined to carry it
through, and now by dint of exertion it has been
so far advanced that the building was opened for
Public service on Christmas Day, by adopting some
slight modification of the original design. Ihe
style may be considered a modified Gothic a me-
dium pitched gable, with flattened plaster ceiling.
There is a side entrance on the North, Principal
Entrance on the West where it is intended to have
a Porch approached by suitable steps rendered ne-
cessary by the level of the ground. Lancet win-
dows on the side Elevations and a triplet window
on the East. The seats are open benches, number
of sittings 500, and the fittings are of a plain des-
cription. The building including tower 101 feet
long, 36 feetwide, with 50 feet height of ceiling,
is slated with Bermuda slate. The cost it would be
difficult to estimate, as material and labour were
given by those who assisted in the work, but 2,500
may be assumed as its cost.
The opening services, at 11 a.m., was by the Rev.
J. H. Buckner, Pastor, who took for his text 4th
chap., 6th verse, of Nehemiah. The afternoon ser-
vices, 3 p.m., was performed by the Rev. A. W.
Nicholson, Wesleyan Minister, assisted by the Rev.
J. A. MacKeen, B.A., Presbyterian Minister. The
former gentleman preached, taking for his text
Zechariah, 4th chap., 7th verse. The evening ser-
vice was by the Pastor, who preached from 2nd
chap., St. Luke, 11th verse.
The Church was well filled during the several
services, and the sum of 30 18/ collected.
At the conclusion of the morning service the Pas-
tor informed the congregation that the church had
been presented with a very fine copy of "the Bible,"
and he considered that the donor-Mr. J. H. T.
Jackson-should be tendered with some token of
their appreciation of so valuable a gift, which the
congregation did "by rising to their feet."

say the answer of the British Government to Mr.
Lowell was to the effect "that it was none of his
business and that they would attend to Mr. Mc-
Sweeney's case without extraneous assistance,"

THE NEW WESLEYAN CHURCH,
It will be observed that Thursday next has been
selected for the opening services of this Church,
which has been in course of construction on Church
Street since 1876, when the foundation stone was
laid (in Septr.) by the Rev. A. W. Nicholson, ex-
President of the Methodist Conference, and now in
charge of the mission in Bermuda. The design,
to hold 800, was furnished by Mr. Edward
Elliott, of Halifax, NovaScotia. It does
not exhibit the tendency which has of late
prevailed, especially in non-Conformist Chur-
ches, towards a Gothic style. A small square
tower rises from the centre of the South gable, in-
tended to be surmounted by a dome or spire, at
present covered in above the apex of the roof which
buts against it. The roof is covered with blue slate
and has but slight pitch. The building, 110 feet
long, 52 feet wide, has a Basement on the level of
the street twelve feet high divided into two rooms
well lighted by side lights, and having a door com-
municating with the outside directly on the West.
The floor of the church above is supported by two
beams running the whole length, held up by tu-
bular iron columns, properly bedded. On each side
of the tower are the two entrances facing the street
which lead into the Basement, and also to the two
side staircases which terminate at the landings im-
mediately over. The tower projects into the Church
shewing three arches and containing in it the large
South Window. From floor level to ceiling is 28 feet,
plastered with alcoves. At theNorthend an arch and
side doors built up with indications on the outside
wall, point to future means of extension. The win-
dows are circular divided into two lights with circle
at junction and extend to within a short distance
of the wall plate. The pews are open at end with
closed sloping backs and seats intended for cushions
to complete comfort. They are arranged in three
stacks, a wide centre range and two side ranges
with twointervening passagesand a passagebetween
them and the wall. They are divided into various
lengths, and have where-requisite iron supports
screwed to the floor. Being of ash and walnut they
present a neat appearance. The Preacher's desk is
contained within the railed space corresponding
with the width of the centre pew range, a few
pews facing each side at right angles. The choir
have a large space allotted them behind the railed
area above which it is slightly raised by a neat
screen. The organ, which was manufactured by
Estey & Co., of Brattleborough, Vermont, has
two rows of keys, is 10 feet high and of good tone,
is placed inthe centre and serves asaneye rest on the
North end wall. The windows are furnished with
opaque rolling blinds with patentfastenings. Hang.
ing lamps are provided for lighting the building.
The Church is built of Bermuda stone from the
Pitt's Bay Quarries of Mr. Samuel A. Masters. The
walls are being plastered outside. Mr. Henry Hal-
let executed the mason work. Mr. J. H. Jackson
the carpenter work, while assistance was given by
the Royal Engineers in slating the roof. The fur-
niture, &c., is from the factory of Muchmore and
Whittle, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, and cost
about 480. The whole cost is taken to be 3,500,
The Basement windows present the most pleas-
ing architectural features. The South front
has an unfinished appearance, and the principal
entrances and staircases afford an inadequate ap-
proach to the large airy room in the main body of
the Church. The position of the tower and its being
set in the building detract from its appearance,
while the number and dimensions of the windows,
for such a bright climate as Bermuda somewhat
unnecessary, have interfered with the side eleva-
tionswhichotherwise couldhave been enrichedinde-
tail. The whole building, however, is a decided im-
provement on the description usually adopted here,
and the congregation must welcome their transla-
tion from their old Meeting House to such a capa-
AN INTERNATIONAL QUESTION.
The United States Demand a Modification of the Clay-
Secretary Blaine's Statement of the Policy of the
United States on the Ponama Canal Question.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 16.-The Official instructions
from Secretary Blaine to Minister Lowell on the
modification of the Clayton.Bulwer Treaty are
made public. In his letter Blaine says: "This Con-
vention was made under unexceptional and extraor.
dinary conditions, which long since ceased to exist,
and the remarkable development of the United
States on the Pacific Coast since then calls for some
essential modification of the Treaty. The pre-
sumptive intention of the Treaty was to place two
powers on a plane of perfect equality with respect
to the canal, but in practice this would prove
utterly delusive and would instead surrender it,
if not in form yet in effect, to the control of Great
Britain. The treaty binds the United States not
to use its military force in any precautionary mea-
sure, while it leaves the naval power of Great Bri-
tain perfectly free and unrestrained. The Clayton.
Bulwer treaty commands this Government not to
use a single regiment of troops to protect its inter-
est in connection with the inter.oceanic canal, but
to surrender the transit to the guardianship and
control of the British navy. If no American sol.
dier is to be quartered on the Isthmus to protect
the rights of this country in the Inter-oceanic Canal,
surely by the fair logic of neutrality, no war vessel
of Great Britain should be permitted to appear in
waters that control either entrance to the Canal.
A more comprehensive objection to the treaty is
urged by this government. Its provisions embody
a misconception of the relative positions of Great
Britain and the United States with respect to the
interests of each Government in question pertaining
to this continent. Government of the United States
has no occasion to disavow an aggressive disposition.
Its entire policy establishes its pacific character; and
its chief aim is to cultivate the most friendly and
intimate relations with its neighbours, both inde-
pendent and colonial. At the same time this Gov-
ernment with respect to European States will not
consent to perpetuate any treaty that impeaches
our rightful and long established claim to priority
on American continent. The United States seeks
to use only for the defence at its own interests,
same forecast and provision which her Majesty's
Government so energetically employs in defence of
the interests of the British Empire. To guard her
eastern possessions Great Britain holds and fortifies
all stragetic points that control the route to India.
At Gibraltar, at Malta, at Cyprus, her fortifications
give her the mastery of the mediterranean. She
holds a controlling interest in the Suez Canal, and
by her fortifications at Aden and on the Island of
Perim, she excludes all other powers from the
waters of the Red Sea and renders it mare clausum.
It would in the judgement of the President be no
more unreasonable for the United States to de-
mand a share of these fortifications or to demand
their absolute neutralization, that for England to
make the same demand in perpetuity from the Unit-
ed States with respect to transit across the Amer-
ican continent. For self protection to her own
interests, the United States in the first instance
asserts ler right to control the isthmus transit,
and secondly she, by such control, secures that
absolute neutralization of the canal as respects
European powers, which can in no other way be
certainly obtained and lastingly assured.

Galway for Arran, Dec. 16, was sunk in a storm.

SCENES & INCIDENTS AT THE VIENNA THEATRE FIRE.
Many of the dead appear to be ladies of the bet-
ter classes. On the fingers of one are rings of
brilliant diamonds. The scene outside the burning
theatre was heartrending. Three Grand Dukes
were present at the finding of the dead, and wept
bitterly. The third gallery had few victims. One
man maintained order at the open door, and, after
entering the dark passage, lighted a wax taper and
led the people out of danger. The stairs of the
third and fourth galleries were found barricaded
with such a mass of overcoats, umbrellas, jackets,
shawls, and bonnets that the workmen had to clear
these away before they could proceed. In the nar-
row stairway between the second and third galleries
the firemen discovered a confused mass of human
bodies writhed together. The corpses taken out of
the galleries were so mangled and so entwined that
it is not doubted the unfortunates struggled and
fought each other in order to gain the door. Three
of the corpses could not be separated. There will
be a strict official inquiry into the cause of the fire.
The correct list of victims by the theatre fire
made by the police, places the number at 794.
Only 144 have been identified.
The name of the gentleman who contributed
#62,500 for relief of Vienna sufferers is Yocttel.
He is an Austrian by birth.
It is understood that "United Ireland" will be
printed in London, and thence posted to subscrib-
ers. Should the Government interfere the office
will be transferred to Paris.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.-Among the witnesses in
the Guiteau trial to-day was Rev. Mr. Shippen, of
Washington, who testified that the usual topics of
conversation between himself and the prisoner were
Conkling, Garfield imbroglio, and the New Testa-
ment revision, and on no occasion did the prisoner
exhibit more excitement than any other person
might do. Mr. Shippen's testimony is considered
of the highest value to the prosecution.
Mi s. Dunmere, formerly wife of Guiteau, took
the stand. She was married to the prisoner in
July,.1869. Scoville objected to the testimony un-
less a record of proof of divorce was shown, and
the witness withdrew, Corkhill remarking he would
introduce the witness later after the necessary copy
of Court records had been obtained.
Dr. Noble, the young physician at the jail, testi-
fied that Guiteau once said: If the President
should die I would be convinced my inspiration
was from the Deity, but if he should recover I
would be in doubt about it." Witness thought the
prisoner a little impatient of restraint, and at times
a little nervous as a man in his position would
naturally be, but perfectly sane.
WASHINoroN, Dec. 16.-The record of the Court
granting Guiteau's wife a divorce having been pro-
duced Mrs. Dunmire was recalled to the stand this
morning. Scoville objected to much of the test.
money, and direct examination was cut short. It
was developed that Guiteau had taken an active I
part in the campaign of Horace Greeley. The 1
cross examination related to several interviews
purported to have occurred between witness and
newspapers, wherein she stated Guiteau was insane,
witness denying every such utterance. Before she
left the stand Guiteau made a speech, in which he
said he had the highest respect for Mrs. Dunmire.
"She is married now and has children," and he
wished her all happiness in every walk of life. He
showed impatience and seemed relieved when she
left the stand. ____

TN the "Royal Gazette" of Tuesday, Deer.
13th, I issued a Challenge to Mr. S. A.
Smith, to run my Ch. Gelding "Starlight"
against his Ch. Gelding Amoskeag," over the
course at Shelly Bay, from One to Two and
half miles; up to the present I have not heard
from Mr. Smith, and conclude he does not
feel inclined to make a race. As no private
match can be arranged, and I shall never run
" Starlight" again at a regular meeting, I will
sell him to any one who will take him away
from Bermuda. Starlight" is 16 hands high,
sound, kind, quiet to ride or drive, a very good
trotter and afraid of nothing; has just turned
7 years, has won 8 out of 9 races he started in,
having lost the first race by bolting off the
course, when well ahead of all other competi-
tors, has ran and won with the heaviest weight
ever carried in the Western Hemisphere, viz.:
14 stone in Shelly Bay Handicap, Nov. 3rd,
Starlight," bred in Kentucky-Sired by
Bulletin," he by Lexington," he by Bos-
ton." His dam was by Sovereign," import-
ed in 1846, his great granddam was "Glencoe,"
imported 1841. All of his ancestors are first-
class thoroughbred race horses. His grandsire
in 1857 at New Orleans when four year's old,
made the best time in a four mile race by 61
seconds of any Horse in the world, making the
distance in 7 minutes 19: seconds, making the
last mile in 1-41 and the last quarter in 24 sec.
I have not the least doubt that Starlight,"
with a few months training will bring his
colors to the front in a 3 or 4 mile race, against
any horse in Europe.

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-

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. I have been entirely cured by your
