The most careful education in the world can only
direct for the time; it cannot change the inner cur-
rent by which we shape our course. We must all
make or mar ourselves by that self-education, that
moral choice of good or evil, which is the real in-
dividuality of each. And as we choose so must we
live, and abide by the results of what we do as well
as of what we are. The fact of these fixed results
cannot be too much impressed on the young.

HOUSE OF COMMONS, MARCH 17.
THE ARMY ESTIMATES.-The House went into
Committee on the Army Estimates. On vote 1
(4,590,000 for land forces at home and abroad), an
animated and protracted discussion ensued on a
proposition by Sir P. O'Brien to reduce the regi-
mental pay and allowance by 10,000. The Hon.
Baronet availed himself of the opportunity to urge
that it was unfair towards Ireland that, while there
were regiments of Guards composed of Englishmen
and Scotchmen, there was no regiment of Guards
composed of Irishmen, although there were High-
land regiments recruited for the most part from Tip-
perary and Connemara...The proposition was op-
posed by Mr. O'Donnell, who urged that the Irish
people did not want an Irish brigade of Guards so
long as the Government of England was anti-Irish
and that it would be a mockery and an insult to
have an Irish brigade of Guards without an Irish
Parliament...Mr. Biggar gave it as his opinion that
in the event of war between England and Russia
the majority of the Irish people would be glad to
see England defeated...Lord Eloho rebuked the
Hon. member for an assertion which he declared to
be wholly without foundation......General Shute
observed that he would have no objection to see an
Irish regiment of Guards, officered by gentlemen be-
low the gangway, and sent to Zululand...This drew
the observation from Major Nolan that many Irish-
men would be very glad to see active service in
South Africa, and that the remark of Gen. Shute
was quite uncalled for......Mr. O'Donnall warmly
retorted upon General Shute for "presuming" to
question the loyalty of the Irish members......Mr.
Biggar explained that what he meant to convey was
that the majority of the Irish people and of the Irish
race all over the world cared more for the interests
of Ireland than for those of England.-On a division
Sthe motion of Sir P. O'Brien was rejected by 120 to 5.
A proposal made by Major O'Beirne to reduce
the vote by the amount of 6,800 in the allowances
paid to commanding officers of brigade depots led
to considerable discussion, and was opposed by the
Government. On a division it was rejected by 148
votes to 7, and the vote was agreed to.-Subse-
quern'ly a number of other votes, all for the non-ef-
fective reserves, were agreed to, and in the course
of the discussion the Chancellor of the Exchequer
took occasion to complain of the exhaustive and
exhausting way in which the first had been criti-
cised, and to point out that if the time of the house
were similarly taken up on the remaining votes
there would be no opportunity to do any work at
all beyond the work of voting supplies; a comment
which drew from Mr. Sullivan the intimation that
the Irish members intended for the future to exer-
cise their rights of criticism to the full, and to give
to the estimates what they had never yet had-a
real and genuine investigation.-This was followed
by an attempt on the part of the Government to
make further progress with the non-effective votes,
but it was successfully resisted by the Irish Home
Rule members, and at half-past one o'clock progress
DANDYISM AMONG THE ZULU WARRIORS.-The
Zulu Kaffirs are much finer and taller men than the
Amakosas, our late antagonists. In battle they do
not wear their usual dressed skins of beasts, but
simply an apron of cats' tails, strung together and
fastened round the waist. This has a very pictures.
que effect upon their copper-coloured skins, and
they have a curious custom of plastering a circle of
hard clay round their heads, the hair being shaved
off close to the scalp for this purpose. The remain-
ing hair, like the fashion of the Amakosa, is worked I
up engrande tenue into a stiff hedge with a kind of
red clay and grease, and also ornamented with fea-
thers. The Zulu warriors are great dandies, and
will onfetes, or such' like occasions, anoint them-
selves with castor oil, pressed from the berry of the
plant of that name, and which grows in profusion.
They also paint their bodies with red clay, and often
bore their ears to insert small wooden boxes or
pieces of springbok horn, in which their delight is
to carry a supply of snuff.

ENGLISH MAIL OF 3RD APRIL.
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw,
with an English Mail of the 3rd instant, arrived on
Friday afternoon last. The B. was detained at
Halifax till Tuesday; the Mail Steamer (the H&i-
hernia,) from England not arriving at Halifax till
1-15 o clock on the morning of that day.
We are indebted to a friend for a Halifax paper
of the morning of the 15th instant.
There are some items of news of significance from
the Continent of Europe.
RUSSIA.-How "Holy" Russia Massacres Politi-
cal Prisoners.-ST. PETERSBURG, April 12.-The
prisoners under arrest in Kieff prison resolved
some time ago to tunnel under the walls and escape.
The scheme was divulged by one of the conspirators.
The authorities allowed the prisoners to continue
the excavation. When the tunnel was completed
and the prisoners entered in, one after another, in-
tending to come up through the opening beyond
the prison precincts. The soldiers previously post-
ed at the opening shot the -escaping prisoners as
they came up, when the bulk of the prisoners, ter-
rifled by the, noise of the firing, stopped and re-
mained in the tunnel. The soldiers were sent in
from behind and the unfortunate wretches, caught
between two fires, were all shot down. The pro-
ceeding seemed to give the officials much amuse-
ment and the director of Kieff prison has been
praised and decorated for having acted with such
ATTEMPT ON THE RUSSIAN EMPEROR'S
ST. PETERSBURG, April 14.-While the Czar was
taking his usual morning walk early to-day, near
the palace, four shots from a revolver were fired at
him. The Czar is unhurt. The man who fired was
arrested by a crowd which the firing attracted.
The city is now being decorated in token of thank-
fulness for the Czar's escape.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 12.-The Emperor, at the
reception of Ambassadors to-day, said that all is
going very well, the project for a conference of the
Powers being favourably received.
EGYPT.-LoNDON, April 14.-A despatch to
the'Times telegraphed from Alexandria says a
great fire is raging in Cairo and has destroyed a
block of buildings hundreds of yards long.
INDIA.-LAHORE, April 12.-A bad feeling is
growing against the British amongst all the tribes
interested in the Khyber Pass; They complain
that the British are acting as though they intended
to keep the pass in spying out the hill fastnesses.
Emissaries from Yakoob Khan, doubtless, have
also been busy among'thetribes.
BURMAH.-RANGooN, April 12.-The King of
Burmah has lost all influence, and the Ministers
are again supreme. Three steamers are in readi-
ness here to carry troops beyond the frontier, should
the King of Burmah suddenly declare war, as it is
generally believed he intends.
AFG HA NISTAN.-LAHORE, April 13.-Major
Cavagnari will probably go to Cabul with a small
escort and endeavour to convince Yakoob Khan
of the futility of resistance. Cavagnari is hopeful
of success. He is good authority, but is perhaps
over sanguine. Yakoob is inciting the tribes
against the British.
THE ZULU WAR.-LoNDON, April 14.-It is
stated that 4,000 repeating rifles and a million
rounds of ammunition were purchased and shipped
- from here last week by a supposed agent of Russia,
but intimations were given that they were really to
go to the Portuguese settlement jdst north of Zulu-
land and be sold to Cetewayo.
VIENNA, April 14.-A shell buried in a road,
exploded near Prince Milan, while walking at Nish
on the 8th inst. His aide-de-camp was wounded,
It is not known whether the explosion is the result
of a plot to assassinate the Prince.
Russia has sent a circular to the powers urging
the hastening of work on the various boundary
commissions, above all the one at work on the line
of the Balkans.
The resumption of negotiations relative to mixed
occupation of Eastern Roumelia has only served to
increase the confusion that prevailed when sus-
pended recently. Germany refuses to send a Com-
mandpr-in-Chief and staff, and stated that another
power which had a leading part in the whole busi-
ness rejected the same offer. Russia also raised
new difficulties. The adhesion of Russia to the
Porte's proposal for a prolongation of the Interna-
tional Commission and the practical difficulties in
the way of mixed occupation, seems to have deter-
mined the Powers to abandon mixed occupation.
SPAIN.-MADRID, April 14.-Pwo bombs were
thrown into a church at San Antonio, Seville, yes-
terday, with the object, it is supposed, of creating a
panic and stealing valuable sacramental plate be-
longing to the church. Several persons were in-
jured by the explosion.
Both of the Queen's lungs are pronounced affect-
ed. The physician hopes to save her life.
NEWFOUN l)LAND.-Sealing.-Since my last
letter the absorbing topic of conversation has been
the Seal Fishery. Most of the steamers have re-
turned or been reported. Ifl il or skins were at an
average price the returns would be good. But as
in all other articles of commerce, there is great de-
pression in the trade, I have been informed that
one large firm, doing business here, has not sold the
oil made last spring. However they have sent
out again, hoping that some call will no doubt be
made for seal oil.
The interest of the first arrival centred on the
steamship Proteus, Carpt. R. Pike, who arrived
Friday, March 28. It was not merely her arrival
but the report of other vessels that made the first
sealer so welcome. The following vessels have
arrived up to the present, with their cargoes of
S. S. Proteus, 12,000 hood-seals.
Lion, 6,000, hoods and 1,300 young hoods.
Aurora, 26,000 young harps, 1,600 hoods.
Greenland, 24,000 young harps.
Arctic, 10,000 "
Merlin, 15,000 "
Commodore, 20,000 "
Neptune, 19,000 young harps and hoods.
,' Hector, 11,000 young harps and hoods.
Brig Isabella Ridley, 5,500 young harps.
S. S. Norwhal, 10,000 "
." Bear, 8,000 "
NEWFOUNDLAND VS. CANADA.-The proposal of
the Dominion Minister of Customs to tax Newv
foundland oil and fish, caused no little stir here.
The consideration of the Revenue Bill was post-
ponhd till home word came down from Ottawa.
One of our papers stated, and it was currently
reported, that a tax of $2 per barrel would be put
on Canada flour, if the duty prohibitory was put on
oil and fish. We sell some $300,000 worth to the
Dominion and take back over two million dollars
worth of Dominion produce. However, we are
glad that the matter has been adjusted, so that no
irritation may remain between the Old Colony and
the fledgling Dominion? We are willing and
pleased to be courted, but you must not attempt to
coerce us into political matrimony.
Arrangements have been concluded for the In-
ternational Maritime Exhibition at Antwerp in
the United States and
The Steamer Flamborough, Capt. Frazer, arrived
yesterday from New York, which place she left on
Friday morning. Experienced strong N. W. gales
up to Sunday night.
We are under obligations to Calpt. Frazer, Mr.
Purser Thompson and Mr. Steward Belanzor of the
Flamborough, for files of New York papers of the
Shsres Delaware and Hudson Canal Co. 41.
DANGEROUS POSITION OF THE BRITISH.
CAPE TowN, April, 1. Via ST. VINCENT, April
16.-The Colonial Secretary of Natal has telegraphed
to the Colonial Secretary of Cape Colony that Cety-
wayo has sent messengers to Lord Chelmsford with
overtures for peace. It is thought, however, that
this is merely a ruse to obtain information of the
movements of the British troops.
Attempting to Avenge the Entombe Defeat.-Colonel
Wood attacked Umbelini's stronghold on the 28th
of March, and captured a quantity of cattle. Sub-
sequently the Zulus retook the cattle, and on the
29th attacked Colonel Wood's camp. The Zulus
were repulsed after four hours' fighting; but the
British loss was heavy. Seven officers and seventy-
seven in all killed and wounded, including Cap-
tain Campbell and Piet Uys, the leader of the de-
tachment of mounted Boers, who has several times
been mentioned in despatches for distinguished
Umbelini's Strength.-The force which recaptured
the cattle from Colonel Wood was 20,000 strong.
The loss of the Zulus in the subsequent attack on
the camp was immense. The Zulus in this attack
were entirely defeated and pursued a considerable
En Route to Ekowe.-The Ekowe relief column
started on the 28th of March. It is composed of
6,000 men, two Gatling guns, two cannon, several
rocket tubes, 113 wagons and fifty-six pack mules.
Colonel Law commands the advance guard, con-
sisting of the naval brigades from the ships Shah
and Tenedos, two companies of Buffs, five of the
Ninty-ninth regiment and the whole Ninety-first
Advance of the Columns.-The wagons are escort-
ed by two companies of mounted natives and a bat-
talion of native foot. Major Pemberton commands
the rear guard, composed of 200 men from the Boa-
dicea, the Fifty-seventh regiment, a battalion of the
Sixtieth regiment and the mounted natives. Lord
Chelmsford and staff are with the rear guard. All
was well with the column up to the 30th of
A Terrible Sittuation.-Colonel Pearson on that
day signalled from Ekona that he could see the
head ot the column entrenching on the Amatudala
River. Colonel Pearson signalled on the 27Lh of
March that 150 of his garrison were ill and fifty
wounded, and that only 500 of his men would be
able to assist the relieving column, for which 35,000
Zulus were lying in wait. Adjutant Davidson, of
the Ninety-ninth regiment, is dead. The number
of the enemy in the immediate neighborhood of
Colonel Pearson's position is estimated at 15,000
Stragglers COut off.-" The relieving column after
the first day's march intrenched here, nine miles
north of Tugela River. On mustering to proceed
the following morning (March 29) one captain was
missing. It is supposed he went beyond the guards
and was cut off by the Zulus during the night. A
few Zulus have been seen watching the advance
from the distant hills, but no fighting is expected
until April 1, as Colonel Pearson signals that the
Zulus are concentrated near Ekowe. It is intend-
ed to relieve the present garrison at Eko.ve with
the battalion of the Sixtieth regiment. The garri-
son will have ample provisions to hold out till the
grand advance is made on Undini. The Ekowe re-
lief column is moving by a road which passes through
an open country."
Martial Law in Nratal.-A despatch from Pieter
Maritsburg announces that martial law has been
proclaimed in consequence of the exorbitant charges
for means of transportation. Lord Chelmsford te-
legraphs that the latest reports say the Zulus refuse
to assemble by regiments, but will defend their own
"We shall meet at Philippi."-The Daily News'
despatch from Cape Town states that Lord Chelms-
ford detained Cetywayo's messengers, promising to
send his terms from Ekowe. A strong fore" of co-
lonial troops had crossed the Orange River to pun-
ish the Griqua chief.
The Basutos.-There was fighting in Basutoland
on the 21st and 23rd of March. A son and two
grandsons of Moirosi and eighty Basutos were kill-
ed and many cattle and horsee captured. The
British loss was insignificant.
The Boers Restless.-The Boers at their meeting al-
most unanimously decided never to rest satisfied
with less than their independence. It is thought
they will adopt a courseof passive resistance.
The Governor Goveral's Movements.-Sir Bartle
Frere has not yet reached Pretonia.
Reinforcements. -The steamer Russia with the
Fifty-eight regiment; the Palmyra, with a battery
of artillery; the England, with a portion of the
Lancers; the Spain, with the dragoons; the
Egypt, with dragoons; the Clyde, with 800 infan-
try, and the Florence have arrived at Capetown
The steamers Tamar, China and Russia have pro-
ceeded to Natal.
ROUMELIA AND BULGARIA.
Why Aleko Pasha Has Been Appointed Governor of
Eastern Roumalia.-LONDON, April 16.-A Vienna
dispatch to the Times" says: If Aleko Pasha, a
Bulgarian, be appointed Governor of Roumelia
why should not the Bulgarian Assembly elect him
Prince of Bulgaria, which would be the first step to
the union of the two countries? The reason why
the Turks are willing to -make the appointment, des-
pite this probability, may, perhaps, be found in the
fact that the unlimited self-confidence of Turkey is
not shaken, and that she calculates on Roumelia
attracting Bulgaria, instead of the latter attracting
the former, whereby she might resume her sway
over both. The Russians are doubtless of a con-
trary opinion; and these two views may explain
how the two powers agreed on ,Aleko Pasha
'as being the fittest person for the Governorship of
LONDON, April 17.-The Time's" dispatch from
Constantinople says England and Russia have ap-
proved the appointment of Aleko Pasha as Gover-
nor of Eastern Roumelia.
The Times's" correspondent at Vienna says it
is believed that the powers have already agreed in
principle in regard to the Porte's scheme for the
government of Eastern Roumalia, and that only the
details remain for settlement.
Advices from Philippolis state that a brigade o I
Militia has been ordered to Bourgas to forestal the
Turks, who it is supposed, desire to occupy the
THE ASSAULT ON THE.CZAR.
Severe Repressive Measures to be Adopted Againist
Socialism-The Would-be Assassin to be Promptly
Tried.-ST. PETERSBURG, April 16.-The name of
the would-be assassin of the Czar is Alexander
RaInn!aW Ra ia s a phnol-.mastor nf 'pnr(?nopz in
the Government of Pleskov. He will be tried by
the highest criminal tribunal. Phe Prosecutor-
General, Senator Leontieff, who is charged with
the preliminary inquiry, has begun his labors. The
belief that the prisoner took poison is erroneous. He
was severely injured by the populace, who would,
have killed him but for the intervention of the Police.
Replying to a congratulatory address of the Mar-
shal of the Nobility, the Czar to-day said be wished
notwithstanding all that had happened, to continue
to act in accordance with the laws ; but this audaci-
ty of the recent attempts at assassination forced
him, against his own will, to take extraordinary
measures, not for himself, but for all, for society
The Agence Raise announces that energetic mea-
sures, which are everywhere demanded by public
opinion, will be adopted.
LO.NDON, April 17.-The Standard's Berlin dis-
patch reports that S-)lovieff has said he was ap-
pointed by lot to shoot the Czar.
For the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
DEAR MR. EDITOR,-Allow me to return you my
warmest thanks for having in your valuable Ga-
zette given me a clue to the whereabouts of my
truant wife. It is a many a long day since I saw
her, and I scarcely expected to hear of her in Is-
lands so remote from those classic lands where the
Gods love to dwell.
Banished from Olympus by a caprice of the
great Jove (with whom I got into hot water through
taking the part of my mother Juno) and condemned
by him to serve a mortal for awhile I cannot leave
these Islands until my term of servitude expires.
It might be worse, however, for though a horse
by day, I resume my own shape by night and find
plenty of congenial occupation in looking after the
warlike accoutrements of those Sons of Mars who
are such favourities of my wife and her worship-
pers, besides attending to those thundering big gun-s
and that wonderful dock which Neptune ana ahl his
people find so useful for their ships. I leave you
to imagine with what satisfaction I hailed the ap-
pearance of the letter from Venus-though I don't
know, even now, whether I shall be able to per-
suade that delight" J creature to return to me.
It's all very well 'or herto say I'm blind to her
conquetries, she thinks because I have only one eye
that I can't tell a hand saw from a marlin's pike, as
old Neptune would say-the truth is, I see only too
clearly with my one remaining eye-but what is
the use of a poor mishapen fellow complaining of a
lovely woman, and a goddess too-the moment she
smiles, all the world is on her side. As to being on
good terms with Mars, I can't help letting him have
whatever he wants in the way of arms, since Jove
insists upon it, and says it would be discreditable
for the God of War to be without the latest im-
provements in weapons-but I think I have had
some revenge upon him in the way in which I have
treated several of his sons-witness the record of
my exploits in your own Gazettes-and I mean to
go on in the same fashion as long as I
am obliged to stay here. I am rather sorry
for my present owner as he is not half a bad
fellow-and I certainly do give him an awful
shock from time to time-but really when I
think of the way in which my beautiful enchant-
ing, and irresistibly attractive wife, coquets with
and bewitches all who approach her, I am apt to
lose patience and vent my anger on mortals-per-
haps my master, may in consequence, wish to get
rid of me. Then, dear Mr. Editor could you not
buy me for your sporting correspondent-Mr. Tal-
ly Ho-1 see from his letters, he is likely to want
a new steed shortly, and I should very much like
to test his riding powers in the field.-Of course, I
being a god, know who he is (which I rather think
Mr. Editor, is more than you do yourself)-I must
confess that his vanity is boundless, and he is not
half so good looking nor so young as he would
have the young ladies of Bermuda believe. But
why should I spoil sport ? Could give them a tip
and tell them to look out at the fancy ball for a
fat little dumpy man-he certainly is no Adonis, or
you may be sure my wife would not have been so
hard upon him-but it would be too cruel to pre-
vent the little man having some enjoyment in the
wonderful costume I know he has devised for him-
self-so I shall be content with saying that the
brilliancy of his dress can only be outrivalled by
the audacity of its conception.
Always, dear Mr. Editor, yours to command.

PEMBROKE GRAMMAR SCHOOL
The Annual Athletic Sports, in connection with
the above named School, were held on Wednesday I
last, and were a great success. As had been pre-
viously arranged, the Steeple Chases were contested
the Monday before, and as the exhibition affords
considerable amusement, a large concourse of
friends and relatives of the competitors had ga-
thered at the appointed rendezvous to witness the ]
struggle. The course selected was about a mile
distance including fifteen broad water jumps; and
as the "going" was very heavy and the line of ]
runmiag intersected by belts of tangled fern, brake
and undergrowth of all kinds, was calculated to
test the pluck and endurance of the lads. Eight .
boys answered their names at the starting post for
the first race and at a quarter past three were sent
away together with a capital start. They take a 9
fine spin across a piece of open grass field and all
negotiate the first ditch without difficulty and land
into a broad patch of tall undergrowth, through 9
which each finds his own way as road there is none.
The footing is swampy and precarious, and some
seem eager to demonstrate their affection for
mother earth by violent and unexpected embraces.
Emerging from this, E. Gilbert, E. Gosling and E.
Darrell are seen following each other over the
broad ditch that skirts the road winding around the
Governor's marsh into Ifamilton. The heavy
swampy ground, the pace and the jumping begin to
tell, and there are evident signs of distress, and
bellows seem to be hard at work. As Gilbert
rounds the last post before coming into the final
stretch, encouraged by the voices of spectators, he
gathers himself together and rises at the jump, but
drops a foot short of the bank and gets a good
soaking, but picking himself out he tops the wall l
leading past D. Hollis' carpenter's shop, and so
across the road and over another wall into Mrs.
Ewing's land. E. Gosling and E. Darrell fare no
better ; with a tremendous splash each follows his
leader into the ditch and out again dripping and
covered with mud to try and close with Gilbert,
who however is not to be overhauled and wins after
a game struggle at the finish. Unfortunately Gil-
bert and E. Gosling have missed rounding a post T
in an early part of the course, and so the cup falls
to the lot of E. Darrell who ran pluckily through-
out. J. H. Darrell managed to pull over the whole
course and secured for himself fourth -honors.
Time, 8 mins., 15 sees.
The second race brings a numerous field of
youngsters to the post. The distance is about
1,200 yards over the same course, and was won by
J. H. Heyl, who ran in first rate form and had
evidently prepared himself for the event and was
in capital training. Most of the others came sign-
ally to grief at the stiff ditches which had to be
encountered before arriving at the goal, but John
Darrell after numerous emersions struggled gamely
to the finish and was second. R. Darrell third.
Time unfortunately could not be correctly taken.
At eleven o'clock on the following Wednesday
the Sports were continued at Tucker's Field, which
the generous owner had kindly lent. Early in the
afternoon the field was crowded with an eager
throng of spectators who by their hearty applause
and encouragement to the competitors in the sever-
al events testified their interest in the day's pro-
ceedings. Lieuts. Hadow and Chauncy and Capt.
Pilleau rendered valuable aid to Mr. Clay by their
warm co-operation in his efforts to carry out the
programme. The enlivening strains of the fine
band of the XIXth P. W. 0. Regt., present by the
kind permission of Col. Vigors greatly enhanced
the pleasures of the day. The events on the whole
were closely contested and did great credit to the
boys who were competing. The jumping was
especially good. The donkey race, ridden in cos-
tume was cleverly won by Harry Butterfield and
the difficulties encountered by some of the riders
in the management of their Steeds gave rise to a
considerable amount of merriment. The stranger's
race of 100 yards brought five competitors to the
post, and was won in fine form by Lt. Chauncy.
His Excellency the Governor accompanied by Lady
Laffan, Miss Laffan and Miss Laura Laffan graced
the meeting by their presence during the afternoon.
The sports were brought to a happy conclusion by
the distribution of prizes to the-successful compe-
titors by Lady Laffan, and the bright and happy
day wound up with three cheers for the Governor,
the Ladies and Mr. Clay.
Subjoined is a full List of the events with the

What with Afghan, Zululand and Barmab, Eng-
land has sufficient trouble on her hands just now.
Whatever may be said as regards the wars in
Afghanistan and South Africa, there cannot be two
opinions as to the attitude of England in Burmah.
While in the former it may be said that she is
actuated by a desire for conquest, any action she
may take against King Thebo in Burmah must be
recognized as solely in the cause of humanity. Mad
with drink and urged by fanatics and reactionary
parties who really desire the overthrow of his dy-
nasty, Thebo having already murdered eighty of his
nobility, is anxious to polish off two royal princes,
who, with their families, have sought and obtained
the protection of the British Resident at Mandalay.
The Resident refuses to give them up to slaughter,
and the King threatens force. If he should carry out
his threats a general massacre of Europeans would
ensue. The King is a mere youth, scarcely twenty
years of age, and has only been on the throne since
the death of his father last October. He is said to
be well educated, but of weak mind and easily in-
fluenced by the wily counsellors who surround him.
In the face of a fixed subsidy, and the increasing
demands of the country without an,, corresponding
source of income, a reduction of expenditure in
Legislative and Government expenses is seriously
demanded by both branches of the Nova Scotia
Legislature. We quote from the majority report
of the Committee of the Legislative Council sus-
tained by a vote of 13 to 6 :
,'The constitution of this province, is based on
the model, so far as circumstances would permit
theparentcountry. This form of Goverment has pro-
duced the most beneficent results, not only in Great
Britain but in the United States and the numer-
ous colonies of the British Empire. The resolution
of the House of Assembly only appeals to one
province where that model has been departed from,
and where the change has been so short a time in
existence that as aganist the experience of every
country in the whole world enjoying constitutional
Government, its solitary example can be of little or
no weight. Your committee may mention that in
the Province referred to (Ontario) no trying emer-
gency has arisen to test the value of legislation by
a single Chamber, and they cannot but consider
that it would be prudent to wait the result of a few
years more experience of its operation, before adopt-
ing with undue haste a similar principle in this
Your committee hesitate, therefore, to make so
vital a change in the constitution of the country
without further knowledge of its practical results
than has yet been furnished to them ; and they are
firmly impressed with the conviction that the object
so much desired by your committee of a reduction
of the legislative expenses may be attained, and
even in a large degree, by the reduction of the
members composing both Houses.

SOUTH AMERICA AFFAIRS.
LIMA, March 19.-A report anterior to the news
per cable of a declaration of war by Peru and Boli-
via against Chili contains the following:
A special envoy of Peru to Chili was received by
the Chilian government and laid before it the basis
on which Peru desired to effect mediation between
the belligerents. Judging from the tone of the
Chilian press the proposal, which is that before en-
tering upon discussion, Chili must evacuate the
Bolivian territory now in possession of her forces,
will be courteously rejected and Peru be obliged to
assume a decided stand. The Peruvians are
actively preparing for any emergency.
Bolivia has issued a decree, expelling all Chilians
from national territory within ten days time. All
commercial relations with Chili are declared inter-
rupted, and assurances will be given that.the war
will be prosecuted until the occupied territory is
again under the control of the former owners.
Troops are being pushed down to Atocama coast.
Chili, meantime, is continually reinforcing her
soldiers in Antofogasia and Caracoles. Fortifica-
tions have been erected, and it is said the two towns
are capable of defence.
Major C. Trench, R.A., has been appointed a
Captain Instructor at the School of Gunnery,
Shoeburyness, to fill the vacancy caused by the
transfer of Major T. Van Straubenzee to the Staff
of the Royal Military Academy.
19TH REGIMENT.-Capt. Langford, on entering
the Army Pay Dept. has been appointed to the
District Pay Office at Aldershot for duty. Capt.
E. Gipps, 2nd Batn., is recommended for the adjut-
ancy of the North York Rifles. Capt. Jameson has
applied for permission to retire.
