Reid Street, May 6, 1879.--1
A clever little passage, at the expense of a mem-
ber of the Belgian Legation, is current. A young
attach recently arrived at Washington fresh from
London, his last station, and greatly vexed over
what he was pleased to call his exile. At all
events," he was in the habit of saying-and the re-
mark became widely quoted-". I shall speak no
English in Washington. I learned it in London,
and I don't intend to spoil my accent." Time
passed. The jattach6 was at a reception. Some
friend of his asked a bright young American wo-.
man to permit him to present the attache to her.-
,' Oh, dear, no," was the reply-and it has travelled
over Washington-"I couldn't think of such a
thing I learned my French in Paris, and it]would
ruin my accent to talk with a Belgian."

Charles Lamb, at the solicitation of a City acquaint-
ance, was induced to go to a public dinner, but stipu-
lated that the latter was to see him stately home. When
the banquet was over, Lamb reminded his friend of
their agreement. 'But where do you live?' asked
the latter. That's your affair,' said Lamb, you un-
dertook to see me home, and I hold you to the bar-
gain.' His friend, not liking to leave Lamb to find
his way alone, had no choice but to take a hackney
coach, drive to Islington where he had a vague notion
that Lamb resided, and trust to inquiry to discover his
house. This he accomplished, but only after some
hours had been thus spent, during which Lamb drily
and persistently refused to. give the slightest clue or
information in aid of his companion.

REWARD OF 10.-The attention of the public is di-
rected to the notice which appears in our advertising
columns to-day, offering a reward of 10 for such in-
formation as will lead to the apprehension of the parties
guilty of the robbery of Jewellery, &c., from Captain
Puzey's Tent, on Warwick Rifle Range, on Tuesday
night last. We trust that the liberal reward thus
offered will be the means of leading to the discovery of
the thieves, so that suspicion may not rest on the wrong
persons or a slur be cast on an honorable corps.

THE ANCIENT ORDER OF FORESTERS.-The offi-

tant affiliated society during the past year, have
just been completed. On the 1st January last the
Order numbered 531,176 benefit and 12,155 honor-

To how many hearts does such an announcement
bring sorrow and dismay; the roaring times of
idleness draw to a close, and the neglected holiday
task awakens memories of former smarts and con-
jures up anticipations of that treatment which,
"cruel only to be kind," is such a practical illus-
tration of the art of making two ends meet.
But no such consequences followed on the open-
ing of School" at Prospect on Tuesday night. It
is quite clear that there are schools and schools,
and if I could begin life again, and have a choice
of education, I should certainly say, please let me
go to the School for Coquettes." Not that I am
a coquette, or wish to be a coquette, but just as it
takes two to make a quarrel, it certainly must take
two to make a coquette, and I would gladly be the
other one, if only a pretty coquette would take me
in hand. The operation is very simple-"open
your mouth and shut your eyes and see what I'll
put in that's nica"; the gift may sometimes be a
little bitter, or sour, but the occasional sugar-plum
(they used to wrap them up and call them kisses"
when I was young) is so sweet when you do get it,
that one is quite ready to shut one's eyes and try
You, Mr. Editor, were quite right not to go to
the Theatre; you would not have been able to see
to the quotations of Onions, and the other weightier
matters of which the Gazette treats, if your head
had been filled with visions of coquettes : bear that
always in mind and send me when you want a cool
But I do wish, when amateurs put pieces of this
kind on the stage, that they would provide one or
two sticks" for the critic to whittle. If one goes
on repeating Mrs. A. was admirable as Lady Z.,
and Mrs. B. took the part of Y. to perfection, read-
ers are disappointed; what they want to read is
that Captain C. murdered the excellent character
of X., and that the dress and get-up of Miss D.
were enough to destroy any company. Disappoint-
ment, however, there must be in the present in-
stance to those who, like the man sitting every
night in the stage box in hopes of seeing Blondin
fall from the trapeze, rejoice only in failures.
When such a company plays there is no such word
In the School for Coquettes" is given opportu-
nity for very high class acting, and the opportunity
was not missed. Put upon the stage with the ac-
cessories of a most tastefully furnished boudoir,
and dresses which had been evidently studied in
every detail, the piece received at the hands of the
performers full justice. From the briskly delivered
opening speech of the bright and piquante abigail,
to the closing lines of the moral, all was admirable.
We wished that Perkup had had more todo and we
hope to see her again soon in a part better fitted to
her histrionic powers.
A more admirable contrast than the vivacious
manner of Lady Amaranthe with the quiet grace
of Lady Glenmorris could not have been provided;
both so attractive that'their three admirers waver-
ed more than once in their homage; it would be
hard indeed for an audience to choose between
them. We might exclaim with fair Portia,
" Oh me, the word choose: I cannot choose one nor
refuse none." But fortunately there is no need to
My Lady Amaranthe played cup and ball with
her admirers with such natural and winsome ac-
tions, that if I had been a fourth suitor, and Lady
Glenmorris (and my wife) absent, I must have tried
conclusions with the other three, even though Lord
Arthur was as "sure of his lunge" as he thought
himself. The scene in which Lady A., for the in-
struction of her pupils in coquetry, plays off her
three admirers one against the other, first encourag-
ing, then rebuffing, was excellently performed, and
drew deserved applause, as did also her well as-
sumed anger at the desertion of her admirers one
by one, for the rival whom she had herself instruct-
ed in the arts of attraction.
The change of manner represented by Lady
Glenmorris when, to win back her truant husband,
she threw over her subdued and matronly demean-
our a fascinating halo of piquancy and flattery was ,
as certain of appreciation by her admirers in front
of the curtain, as of attraction to the three gentle-
men who like silly moths singed their wings at the
false light hung out to them.
The reconciliation between Lady Glenmorris and
her husband was well acted by both, and was re-
warded by a burst of applause-and let it be remem-
bered that acting must be very good to cause any
noisy demonstration by a kid-glove audience."
Lord Arthur Bramble, or rather his representa-
tive, has evidently trodden the boards of many a
stage, and took his r61e with cleverness; the gen-
tlemanly air of an aristocratic soldier being well
blended with the foppish folly of one devoted both
to the fair sex and to himself. There was some
confusion after the delivery to Bramble of the ano-
nymous challenge which a little marred, what
should have been, a more effective situation. I am
curious to know on what grounds so much stress
was laid on the last syllable of the word "genuine"
-doubtless the actor had his reasons. M1acready
used to pronounce "turquoise" as if spelt "tur-
kees," and "burial" in the Merchant of Venice
Sir Aubrey Glenmorris had a difficult but suc-
cessful task; both in the reconciliation scene al-
Sready mentioned, and in that in which Lady Ama-
ranthe offers him her hand, the character was well
The impersonation of Sir Basil Bodkin well por-
trayed an air of conceited affectation as foreign to
his own as the assumed voice in which he rolled out
his sentences. As our American neighbours would
say, Sir Basil was a great man for Bodkin. His
part adds an amusement which serves to relieve'the
somewhat stilted tone of Mr. Palgrave Simpson's
The guests, for whose entertainment this charm-
ing piece of acting was provided, numbered about
156, and those who were not content with a distant
view of the fair and gallant performers, had oppor.
tunities afforded them of a closer acquaintance, for,
the seats having been quickly removed from the
body of the Theatre, the dramatic company, in their
character dresses, joined the spectators in the valses
and galops which were played by the String Band
of the 46th Regiment. So smooth were the boards,
so inviting the strains of music, and so hospitable
and kind the hosts, who, for want of room at Mount
Langton, had availed themselves of the space af-
forded by the Theatre, that the party did not break
up till nearly 3 in the morning.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
RECTORY, PAGET, May 12, 1879.
MY DEAR SIR,-Will you kindly afford me space
in your columns to give information respecting the
first meeting of the Synod of the Church of Eng-
land in Bermuda.
It is purposed that, with GOD'S permission, the
Synod shall meet on Ascension Day, Thursday,
At eleven o'clock, in Trinity Church in the Town
of Hamilton, there will be full morning Service,
with a Sermon, and a Celebration of the Holy Com-
munion, when, it is hoped, all the Clergy of the
Church of England serving in this Colony will be
On an occasion of such deep moment to our Church
no doubt many besides the regular worshippers at
Trinity will desire to join in the Service, and efforts
will be made to accommodate all who attend.
I need hardly say that Communicants from other
Parishes are cordially invited to partake of the
Holy Communion on that occasion.
At two o'clock on that day the Clergy who are
entitled to a seat and vote in the Synod, and the
Lay Representatives recently chosen by the Ves-
tries, will assemble in the Trinity School-room,
adjoining the Bishop's Lodge. It is usual for the
ordinary meetings of a Synod to be open, and to be
largely attended by the public.
As it is probable that many persons would desire
to be furnished with a prayer suitable to be used
during the session of the Synod, either in private
devotion, or at family worship, I will add that such
a prayer has been prepared and printed, and may
be obtained on application either to the Rectors of
the Parishes, or at the Office of the Royal Gazette.
Yours very faithfully,
J. LUMLEY LOUGH.
NOTES IN CROP SEASON.
Anxiety to get large returns encourages the plant-
ing of Minnesota Potatoes. It must be a question
whether this practice is or is not of any benefit, to
The proper time for this consideration is, now,
during the reaping season, when daily opportuni-
ties, for examining practically, the relative values
of the product of Minnesota Potatoes, and of pure
Garnet Seed, are before the farmers, brokers, agents,
and the foreign dealers. Farmers who push aside
the consideration, until they have more time, sim-
ply elect, to grope in the dark, and leave themselves
liable to become the willing assistants of dealers in
Minnesota Seed, who, a few months later, will have
a fresh stock for the good or evil of 1880.
In favour of the Minnesota variety, earlier and
larger proportional returns for the quantity planted
are claimed, while against the same must be ar-
rayed the continual and marked complaints of the
New York dealers against dark red Potatoes,"
and the fact that some purchasing agents, have po-
Returns of decay from the increasingly valuable
market of British Guiana, may often be traced di-
rectly to shipments of Minnesota Origin.
One object of this note is to invite the advance of
reasons sufficient to justify farmers in persisting to
plant a variety so especially liable to decay and al-
ready so much slighted for foreign trade.

From The New York Evening Mail, May 8.
A Crimean Hero Carries Off One of New York's
Among the passengers who sailed on the mail
steamship Canima for Bermuda this afternoon, was a
dashing looking English officer, who has carried
away one of New York's fairest daughters. He came
on here from Bermuda to marry his beautiful be-
trothed, who had been locked up, it is said, as a
prisoner by her stepfather, a well known federal of-
ficer. But love laughs at locksmiths, and the Brit-
isher came, saw and conquered. Both are wealthy.
The love between the happy pair commenced at
Bermuda last year. The bride is Miss Venetia
Alamazaida, daughter of the late Francis Creamer
Serton. She was spirited away from her father's
residence by the Britisher and taken to the resi-
dence of the bride's uncle, late United States Con-
sul to Madagascar, at No. 108 West Forty-fourth
street. There they found the Rev. A. H. Partridge,
of Christ's church, Brooklyn, awaiting them, and
soon were made man and wife.
This morning a reconciliation with the mother of
the bride took place. The bridegroom only arrived
here on Sunday night, was married on Monday,
and to-day takes his beautiful bride to her island
home. The happy man is Assistant Commissary
General Lilley, who served in the field train of the
royal artillery in the Crimean campaign of 1854-56
with the First division of the army under the com-
mand of His Royal Highness the Duk9 of Cam-
bridge. He was present with the First division at
the affairs of the Bulganac and Mackenzies farm ;
the capture of Balaklava and with the First division
in reserve on the occasion of the cavalry charge at
Balaklaval on October 25, 1854, part of the Second
brigadeof the First division being engaged with the
Russian cavalry.'"He was engaged with the First
division in the battles of Alma and Inkerman, in
the bombardment of October 17, 1874, and June
18, and September 7, 1855. Throughout the siege
and at the fall of ebastopol. He holds the Cri-
mean medal with four clasps for Alma, Inkerman,
and siege of Sebastopol, the Turkish medal, and is
also a member of the Legion of Honor.
One of the latest applications of vulcanized rubber
in England is to render china, stone, and glass ware
noiseless. It is applied in the form of narrow strips
inserted in grooves.
The first of a series of three subscription dances
was given on Thursday evening last at Prospect
Theatre by the Officers of the Garrison.
About fifty officers have subscribed towards these
entertainments, all being desirous of returning, in
some substantial way, the many kindnesses they
have received from the inhabitants of Bermuda.
Cards of invitation have been issued for all three
dances, but it is intended to limit, if possible, the
number of subscribers and guests at each dance to
one hundred and fifty.
On Thursday evening the Theatre was tastefully
decorated, the walls and roof being festooned
with flags and evergreens. Over the stage a mag-
nificent wreath of flowers was hung, and several
smaller wreaths were suspended from the roof, add-
ing considerably to the gay appearance of the room.
At 8 p.m. carriages began to arrive, and by 8.30
most of the subscribers had assembled to meet their
friends. Colonel and Mrs. Gordon, in the absence
of Colonel and Mrs. Morrison, were desired to re-
ceive the guests, but owing to some unfortunate
mistake, either in issuing or addressing the invita-
tions, or from some other unexplained reason, only
about twenty-five guests appeared, rendering the
entertainment, so far as the original idea was con-
cerned, almost a failure, there being about two en-
tertainers to each guest. Those present appeared
to enjoy the dancing thoroughly, there being plenty
of room and a good floor.
At midnight supper was announced, a most ex-
cellent spread, sufficient for about two hundred
people, and it was much to be regretted that so few
were there to partake of it. The tables were most
elegantly arranged, and the Supper Committee
deserve great credit for their labours. Where are
the guests ?" was heard from more than one sub-
scriber as they gazed with pity on the abundance
of viands that would be stale and wasted on the
The next dance takes place on the 15th instant--

Committee will ensure its success.

is to be a change in the state of the Anthracite

ance of securing vessels if you desire us to fill

"We cannot consent to carry the present orders

sire the coal delivered in May, we trust that you
will see that vessels are secured during the month
to carry it."
It is impossible for us to agree to secure such
vessels, and with the prospect of an advance in the
price of coal, we can only hold ourselves responsi-
ble to fill present orders during May, provided you
secure vessels for transportation.- The Coal Trade

PUNISHING HOSTILE VILLAGERS.
Private letters describe Gen. Tytler's success on the
24th March as the most complete yet achieved by the
Khyber column. Gen. Tytler started at 1 a.m. with
700 men to punish the villagers of Mausum and Mu-
barik Shah, four miles to the south of Pesh Bolak, for
an attack made on our commissariat agent who had
gone there to purchase forage. The march was tedious
and the day beginning to break, General Tytler, with
150 spears, hurried to prevent the enemy's escape.
Leaving the infantry to follow the villagers in force,
he attacked with the cavalry- on three sides. A portion
of the cavalry skirmishing dismounted; the remainder,
with their horses, finding a sheltered spot. The in-
fantry, coming on at the double, joined the fight. In
front of our position was a plain, 700 yards from the
village of Mausum, the walls, towers, and open ground
being held by match-lock men. On the right was a nul.
lah, across which several hundred of the enemy fired.
To the right rear, at 300 yards' distance, stood another
Village from the walls of which the villagers kept firing.
On the left there was a deep nullah, unoccupied. The
artillery opened fire on Mausum. Skirmishers and
guns gradually advancing, General Tytler left two
companies to hold in check the village on the right
rear, ordering the cavalry across the nullah on the
right to clear the plain. The fire of the five guns and
of the infantry cleared the village walls. Then infan-
try then advanced and occupied the village, the enemy
retreating to other villages 400 yards to the rear.
Meantime the cavalry gained the plain and charged
upon the men in it. These fired a volley at 60 yards,
which emptied two saddles and wounded 4 troopers.
In a moment the cavalry were among the enemy, who
were scattered in all directions. The latter attempt-
ing to escape over broken ground to the opposite hill,
the cavalry pursued them, and in three minutes 50
dead lay on the plain. General Tytler now sent the
infantry and cavalry across the nullahs, each side to
guard the flanks, while two villages on our left were
seized and the towers secured for blowing up. The
troops breakfasted in the villages beyond. On all sides
the Shinwaris gathered in gangs of from 15 to 50, but
they dared not enter the plain within reach of the
Martinis. After leisurely mining and lighting fuzes
we retired 200 yards to the rear of our first position.
The enemy rushed forward and re-occupied Mausum
just as the towers blew up, killing many. We next
blew up the village of Duraiz, the inhabitants of which
had attacked our right. This lasted one hour. The
enemy assembled to the number of from 3000 to 4000
and followed us to Pesh-Bolak, four miles distant.
We retired in extended horse-shoe shape, our guns in
the centre. The enemy pressed hard on our rear and
on both flanks, yelling, waving black and white flags,
and maintaining a perpetual fire. We freely plied
shells and musketry. They suffered heavily, but were
very plucky, approaching within 100 yards, brandish-
ing swords and knives, and making a show of charging;
but invariably, as some fell, the rest dodged behind
the rocks. They never actually charged, but carefully
kept the broken stony ground where cavalry were
useless. When we reached smooth ground they dared
not follow. Our loss was two troopers and two horses
killed, six troopers and five horses wounded. The
enemy lost at least 300.

LIABILITY OF TRUSTEES.
The llouse o Lords have been occupied during the
weck in hearing pleadings in the appeals from the
Court of Session involving the principle of personal
liability of trustees for calls upon shares of the City of
C laow Bank held in trust.
The debate in the appeal of the trustees of Mrs. Syme
and Mrs. Boyd, Edinburgh, was concluded on Tues-
day. Mr. Higgins, for the appellants, concluded his
reply hy arguing that the appellants had acted on the
conviction prevalent in Scotland, that the Act of 1857
gave trustees in that country power to become mem-
bers of joint stock companies in their representative
capacity only. The directors of companies had al-
wans the safeguard of knowing the sufficiency of the
trust fund to answer any liability, and in this case,
behind 6,000 of stock, they had 70,000 of an estate.
But the inconvenience to the directors from the ab-
sence of sufficient funds would not counterbalance the
overwhelming and most unexpected consequences that
must result if the decision of the Court of Session were
affirmed. This statement drew from Lord Selborne
the remark that the consequences could scarcely have
been unexpected after the decision in the Western
Bank case. Mr. Higgins urged that if the judgment
of the Court of Session were not reversed, no one
henceforth would become a trustee in Scotland, be-
cause the acceptance of such an office might, without
the slightest fault on the part of the trustee, involve
him in utter ruin. Their lordships then intimated
that they would take time to consider their judgment.
DECISION AGAINST TRUSTEES.
The House of Lords yesterday gave judgment in
the important appeal case of Muir and others v. City
of Glasgow Bank Liquidators, which involves the
question whether trustees, who had accepted transfer
of shares, were personally liable in the payment of
calls, or were merely liable to the extent of the trust
The Lord Chancellor, delivering judgment, said
there was no limit to the liability, and the appeal must
be dismissed with costs.
The Lord Chancellor, in delivering judgment, said
-The bank consists of partners, and these partners
are to be either individuals or corporations. There is
no limit of liability. If the partner is an individual,
he is absolutely liable to the extent of his means, as
an individual, for the proportion of the debt of the
bank attributable to his share. If the partner is a
corporation, the corporation is liable to the extent of
all the property which it may possess. It is necessary
to contrast with this the contract which the appellants
allege was entered into between them and the bank
by reason of the use in the transfer to them, and ir
the stock ledger on the words, 'as trust disponees o
Mrs. Syme and Mrs. Boyd.' The appellants under.
took, as they say, to be liable in the obligation incum-
bent on holders of stock, to the extent only of thE
trust funds under their administration. In the viei
of the appellants, there were, as to these shares, to bc
no partners of the bank individually liable. The lia
ability as to these shares was not to be the liability o
the trustees, but the liability of certain funds under
the administration of the trustees. As to what thes
lunds might be nothing is said. The trust might con
sist of nothing more than that shares themselves, an(
thus the shares be their own security ; or the trust
funds might be such as that, in a due course of admin
istration, they might all be parted with before ani
liability came to be enforced against them. The bani
would be obliged to consider and scan every deed c
trust in order to determine whether the trust fund
could, under the trusts declared, be properly used i
the purchase of bank stock, or in the payment of ban
liabilities. But putting these considerations asih
and assuming that trust funds were a definite, declared
and always available sum of money, what would thi
be but the creation of shares with a limited liability
And it this limit of liability could be created for som
shares in the bank, why not for all the shares in th
bank ? If the argument of the appellants is righ
what would there be to prevent every share in the ban
being held by trustees, who would be furnished with
trust fund with the precise amount to be paid upo
the shares, and would have no further.liability ? Bi
this is just what the law would not permit to be don.
with regard to a joint stock company of this kin,
except by means of the constitution of a company wit
liability limited according to the statute, and such
company the "Glasgow Bank never was. I have n
hesitation in saying that, in my opinion, the director
had no power under their deed, and the appellan
must be taken to have known that they had no powc
to enter into or accept a contract that, if attempted 1
be made, would have been ultra vires and void. Bi
for this very reason it appears to me to be necessai
that your lordships should consider whether the wore
upon which the appellants rely require construction:
which would invalidate the contract in which they 0o
cur. Now these words are-' As trust disponees
Mrs. Syme and Mrs. Boyd.' I do not wish to si
that in a case in which such a contract would be witli
in the competency of the contracting parties, ar
when these words could not be referred to any oth,
object or purpose, they might not, on the construction
of the whole instrument, be held to negative the id
of personal responsibility. But I have endeavour(
to show your lordships that such a contract would n
be within the competence of the parties in the preset
case, and there is no difficulty whatever in asslgnir
the words a meaning and a purpose clear, intelligibi
and within the limits of the contracting power of tl

DEATH OF THE REV. DR. INGRAM, UNST.-TI
Rev. James Ingram, D.D., Free Church minister
Unst, in Shetland, died there on Monday, in tli
103rd year of his age and 76th year of his minister
He was not only the "father" or oldest Minister
the Free Church of Scotland, but is supposed
have been the oldest minister in the world, ar
possibly there are but few other authenticated cas
of a man reaching his 103rd year. The deceased
was born in the parish of Logie-Coldstone,:
Aberdeenshire, on the 3rd of April 1776. H
father lived to the age of 100, and his grant
father to the age of 105; both occupied a farm
Daugh, in the parish just mentioned. He receive
his preliminary education at the parish school
Tarland, and the Grammer School of Old Aberdee
and became a student of King's College when 1
years of age, having gained the highest compelitic
bursary given at the time. In 1795 he entered tl
divinity Hall at Aberdeen, and in 1800 was license
as a preacher of the Established Church of Scotlan
by the Presbytery of Shetland. He afterward
assisted the Rev. James Gordon, minister of Fethl
and North Yell. In 1803, on Mr. Gordon's deal
at the unanimous request of the congregation,
was presented to the vacant living by Lord Dunda
and in the same year he married the daughter <
the Rev. James Barclay, minister of Unst. I
1821 he was presented tohe parish of Unst, an
came out with the Free Church in 1843. Unt
about six years ago he was able occasionally t

MR. BRIGHT ON PROTECTION AND DIS-
A newspaper report of a working men's meeting 1
recently held in Bradford on the reciprocity ques-
tion having been forwarded to Mr. Bright, the
right hon. gentleman writes as follows:-
"132 Piccadilly, April 1, 1879.
Dear Sir,-I thank you for the note and the
newspaper. The meeting seems to have been a
very good one. The reciprocity" motion is exact-
ly adapted to catch the considerable class of sim-
pletons who have no memory and no logic. But
for this lack of memory and reasoning power they
would know that the distress in the country was
ten times greater in the period from 1839 to 1842
than it has been from 1877 to the present time, and
than it is at tlis moment, although in former peri-
ods we bad protection as much as Parliament and
the laws could give. They would know, also, that
in the United States, the most protected nation in
the world, the distress during the last few years has
been far more prolonged, more widely spread, and
far more intense than in this country. If your re-
ciprocity neighbours could reason, surely these
facts would help to convince them of the silliness
of their views. If you wish to learn something of
the distress of the former period, I recommend you
to read a volume written lately by my friend Henry
Ashwortb, of Bolton. Its title is 'Cobden and the
League.' Any bookseller will get it for you. If
England could be reduced during this year to the
condition it was in after the bad harvests of 1839 to
1842, we should have insurrection and anarchy all
over the country, and the simpletons who are wri-
ting pamphlets and delivering lectures in favor of
protection would be flying for their lives. If your
working men ask for protection or reciprocity after
what they have seen and known during the past 30
years, it is clear that neither fact nor argument, nor
experience, can be of any service to them. I am
not afraid that this heresy or lunacy will make
much way amongst them.-I am, very respectfully
yours, JOHN BRIGHT.
Mr. Abraham Sharp, Bradford."
CULLEN, Scotland,March 31.-In our list of mar-
riages to-day will be found one which has lately at-
tracted considerable public attention. As now well
known the Rev. Wm. Walter Roberts, a clergyman
formerly connected with the Roman Catholic Church,
resided for some time during the summer months
of last and a previous year at the Seafield Arms
Hotel, Cullen, where he formed an acquaintance
with Miss Ann Shannan Caird, second daughter of
Mr. Caird of the Hotel, which ripened into a mu-
tual attachment that resulted in a private marriage
on the 10th September last. The parties, however,
continued to live separately, but in the early part
of this year, Mr. Roberts wished his alleged wife to
join him in England. To this her parents objected.
This led Mr. Roberts to raise an action in the Court .
of Session against Mr. Caird to compel him to give
up his daughter to him. During the time this ac-
tion was pending, Mr. Roberts came to Cullen, and
while residing here for the time prescribed by the
Marriage Notice Act, he and his alleged wife gave
-notice to the registrar of their intended marriage,
and the notice having been posted during the peri-
od enjoined by the Act, and no objections lodged, a
marriage certificate was supplied to them. Accord-
ing to appointment, they met in the Manse of
Cullen at nine o'clock on the morning of Wednes-
day last, where they were married by Dr. Hender-
son, assisted by the Rev. James M'Intyre, minister
of Seafield, in the presence of a select company.
The registrar being present with the marriage re-
gisters, the marriage was registered immediately
after being celebrated, and an extract of the entry
was given to the newly married couple, who then
left in a post chaise for Fochabers railway station,
en route for Perth and thence to London.
PAPER BARRELS.-It is claimed that the new
paper flour barrels are not only cheaper, but more
tight and durable, as well as lighter, than those of
the ordinary construction. By an improved method
of manufacture, these barrels are composed of straw
paper pulp, which is run into a. mould, made in the
shape of one half of a barrel cut vertically. The
pulp is subjected to a powerful hydraulic pressure,
and, when reduced to the required thickness, the
ends of the halves are cut off; the pieces are then
placed in a steam diier, the sides are trimmed even-
ly, and the substance thoroughly dried. It comes
from the drier ready for making up into barrels.
There are three heavy wooden hoops and two
hoopsfastened together, and into grooves cut in the
staves, the paper halves, which have an average
thickness of three-sixteenths of on inch, are slid.
The ends of the barrels are made of paper of a simi-
lar thickness, constructed upon the same principles
as the sides. The barrels are manufactured en-
tirely by machinery, and the halves are cut so true
that any two pieces of the same size will readily fit
together.-The Miller and the Millwright.
THE LAND OF PUNT.-Among the numerous
sources from which their boundless wealth flowed
into the treasuries of the Pharaohs was the myste-
rious land of Punt, the abode, according to an old
tradition, of the gods who migrated thence with
Amon, Horus, and Hathor at their head, into the
Nile Valley. By the name of Punt the old inhabit-
ants of Kemi meant a distant land washed by the
great ocean, full of valleys and hills, rich in ebony
and other rare woods, in incense, balsams, precious
metals, and costly stones; also in beasts, such as
giraffes, hunting leopards, panthers, dog-headed
apes, and long-tailed monkeys. Birds with strange
plumage rocked themselves on the branches of
wonderful trees, such as the incense-tree and the
cocoa-palm. This land of wealth, which may well
have been the same as the Ophir of the Hebrews, is
considered by Brugsch-Bey to have been beyond
doubt the Somauli land lacing the coast of Arabia.
Peculiar to that land was the idol Bes, the oldest
local form of the godhead, which wandered far from
thence, and gained a footing not only in Egypt, but
in Arabia and divers parts of Asia, as far even as
the isles of the Greeks. The misshapen Bes, with
apish countenance and bestial attributes, became
identified with Set, and in the Greek mythology
with Herakles, as also with Dionysus. Numerous
representations of this god are given by Sir Gar-
diner Wilkinson, who thinks that by Bes is typified
the power of death, as the dissolution of the animal
part of man. -He seems to us rather to embody the
ideas of animal or corporeal vigour and enjoyment.
It was under King Sankh-ka-ra, of the eleventh
dynasty, that the first expedition took place to
Punt for odoriferous gums, the noble Haman be-
ing the commander," as he has himself left on re-
cord in the inscription translated by M. Chabas.-
The Saturday Review.
The workmen in the new garden at the north-east
of St. Paul's, London, in digging recently, came
upon the foundation of Paul's Cross at the depth of
six feet. The date of the cross is antecedent to the
thirteenth century. It was used for ecclesiastical
purposes for the first time during the reign of Ed-
ward I., the earliest record of such employment be.
ing in the year 1299. In Henry VIII.'s and Eliza-
beth's reigns the pulpit was filled by the most emi-
nent preachers of the Reformation. It was here that
Latimer and Ridley proclaimed to crowds of eager
listeners that testimony which they afterward sealed
with their blood. It was here, also, that Ridley
preached his memorable sermon on the occasion of
using the new Service Book for the first time. The
demolition of Paul's Cross was decreed by the Long
Parliament in 1642, and in the following year it was
razed to the ground.

MOUNT LANGTON THEATRICALS.
The great interest which was everywhere mani-
fested in the Theatricals, which a large number of
favoured guests were invited to witness in the Pros-
pect Theatre on the evening of May 6th, betoken-
ed a pleasant and lively memory of the efforts'of
the same distinguished actors on a previous occa-
sion at Mount Langton, when they obtained a bril-
liant and deserved success.
All who were privileged to enjoy the perform-
arce of the pretty comedietta, "A school for Co-
quettes," on Tuesday last, will acknowledge that
their expectations, though raised to a high pitch,
were more than realized.
The guests, on arrival at the Theatre, were shown
to their seats by a staff of willing and efficient
aides-de-camp, and the eager an-I watchful faces
turned constantly stage-wards, showed that excite-
ment and pleasurable interest were everywhere
Much enthusiasm was displayed when it wne dis-
covered that our old favourites, the fine String Band
of the 46the Rgt. had been brought up from St.
George's to do honour to the occasion, and in listen-
ing to the exquisite music, we almost forgot to be
impatient for the rising of the curtain.
The Prologue, which was composed and spoken
by Mr. P. V. Turner, met with well-merited ap-
plause, as, in spite of the very long roll of parch-
ment with which he tried to frighten his audience,
it exemplified the moral of the play with that bre-
vity, which is, we all know, the soul of wit.'
When about to recite his clever composition, the
poet debutant put on an air of nervous embarrass-
ment so skillfully and naturally, that many who
did not know him were imposed upon by it. We
give the Prologue in full, as the most fitting intro-
duction to the performance.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Friends from far and near,
We hope to-night that what you see and hear
Will give you pleasure,
Chase your cares away,--
But I'm forgetting the Prologue I've to say.
Life is a play, and all the world's a stage,
So wrote in former days a Poet sage :
We learn each day how best to play our parts,
And how to gain control o'er wilful hearts,
Ladies, young ladies specially, I mean,
Who yet but little of the world have seen,
Here you may learn to spread your silken nets,
By watching well the art of skilled coquettes.
Remember when your quarry's lured and caught,
And you have gained the objects which you sought,
The cords to bind your captives to your side
Should be of silk, and not too tightly tied.
And you, my masters, who your Ladies rule,
Or think you do-so, welcome to our School,
Learn the brief moral of our evening's play,-
'Man has his Will, but Woman has her Way.'
At length the wished for moment arrived, and
the curtain slowly rose on a handsomely furnished
boudoir in the house of Lady Amaranthe Allwill,
where Perkup, the saucey waiting woman, is occu-
pied in arranging the mysterious appliances of the
toilet-table, and soliloquizing meanwhile on the
tempers of her la-ship.' The story was set forth
with admirable skill, and the acting throughout
was distinguished by a rare degree of finish and
The School for Coquettes" is a brilliant come-
diette in two Acts. Lady Amaranthe Allwill, a
provoking, piquante, seductive widow,' with much
experience of the weakness and follies of mankind,
has allowed herself to feel and shew a preference
for a certain handsome fine gentleman, who, under
the assumed name of Leonard Frankland, has in-
troduced himself into her house as an artist, on
pretence of taking her portrait, though he informs
us himself that he don't know how to hold a pen-
cil." This gentleman, whose real name is Sir Au-
brey Glenmorris, in a tete-a-tete with Dame Con-
science, to which enforced solitude drives him,
avows himself a cheat and a swindler," inasmuch
as he is is already a married man, and has left his
wife to vegetate among turnip-tops and cab.
bages," while he is amusing himself in the fashion-
able world, but cannot make up his mind to aban-
don his designs, so great is the mastery which the
fascinating Lady Amaranthe exercises over him.
Lady Glenmorris, the beautiful deserted wife,
having heard of her husband's delinquencies from'
a worldly-wise old uncle, who laments that she
knows nothing of the art of coquetry, "that so
notable a part of a girl's education," and therefore
cannot cope with her rival, forms the plan of going
up to town, likewise under an assumed name, and
demanding a few lessons in the art from an old
friend, of whose successes as a "professed coquette"
she has heard even in the seclusion of her country
life, in order to endeavour to win back the affec-
tions of the husband, who has grown tired of the
"old story" of his wife's devotion to him, but whom
she tenderly loves in spite of all his coldness and
neglect. The simple and pathetic way in which she
tells her:story touches Lady Amaranthe's heart, and
she willingly promises her help, telling her that her
fault is she has loved her husband too well, that
" men only value what they have not, or what they
are like to lose," and, protesting that 'theory is a
sorry school without practice,' invites the young
wife to remain and see her at work among her
The next scene, during which the piquante and
.charmingly-dressed widow plays off her "jealous,
fiery, earnest" adorer, Lord Arthur Bramble, against
her "lay-figure," Sir Basil Bodkin, driving the
former to the verge of despair, but only causing
the latter to settle himself more firmly in his con-
viction of ultimate success, until a complication en-
sues by the arrival of the soi-disant Mr. Frankland
and the consequent recognition between himself
and his injured wife, is admirably rendered.
From now till the happy finale, a constant game
of cross purposes is going on. Mrs. Templemore
(Lady Glenmorris) learns her lesson so aptly, that
the Lady Amarafithe soon finds herself bereft of
her admirers, and one can hardly recognize in the
graceful, self-possessed lady of fashion, enchaining
all hearts by the eloquence of her looks and smiles,
the nervous and timid woman who has so lately
won our sympathies by her simple rustic story of
love and desertion. She insists on a separation
from her husband, who finds himself in a very un-
pleasant predicament, scorned by the wife whom
he'learns to value now that she seems lost to him,
and wooed in his turn by the widow whese fascin-
ations have, for him, lost their charm.
The final scene gives the reconciliation between
husband and wife,'when the latter confesses that her
coquetry has only been a ruse to lure him back to
her side. My Lady Amaranthe, albeit somewhat
piqued at this unexpected denonement, consoles
Lord Arthur for his long siege of her heart by a
complete capitulation, and Sir Basil Bodkin finds
that the only person left to 'adore' him is the
waiting-woman, skill'd in the ogle of a roguish
eye, yet ever well inclin'd to heal the wound,"
whose vivacious pertness, and acute remarks on
P" men and manners" have caused much amusement
throughout the whole play.
And so the curtain fell, amid a storm of applause;
a number of beautiful bouquets, thrown from all
parts of the Theatre, testifying to the delight of the
audience, whose interest in performers and per-
formance had never flagged.
It is a well-constructed play, with lively and
spirited dialogue, effective costumes and telling si-
tuations. The parts were in every respect admira-
bly cast, and the elocution throughout truly excellent.
The role of Lady Amaranthe was sustained with
charming vivacity and grace, aided by natural
-*Al. _-1-,a ;3 ;4- no w"_n .. a .3 i. -
apt a scholar in coquetry did the Lady Glenmorris
prove that it was difficult to remember she was in-
deed a novice in the art. The charm of her face
and manner were felt by all, and the ready tact and
fertility in expedients with which she endeavoured
to outwit her rival, and regain her husband's tru-
ant affections, were rendered with true dramatic
skill, and received the highest encomiums.
Sir Aubrey Glenmorris, whose facile feelings had
placed him in so decidedly awkward a position,
showed himself capable of sustaining a difficult
role with ease and success; and Sir Basil, the con.
cited, self-confident fop, provoked great laughter
by his natural rendering of the character.
The gentleman who personated Lord Arthur
Bramble has long been a favourite with the play-
loving public of Bermuda, and sustained his well-
won reputation very fully by the ability and court-
ly grace displayed in his new part.
Nor was the character of her la ship's maid car-
ried out with less spirit or cleverness than the more
ambitious r6le of Lady Amaranthe, or the more
dignified one of Lady Glenmorris. The latter pro-
duced some touches of pathos which, added to a
self-mastery very unusual in so young an actress,
give promise of high dramatic talent.
To complete the thorough enjoyment of the even-
ing, soon after the conclusion of the performance,
dancing was instituted, and was kept up with un-
flagging energy and spirit far into the small hours.
No pains had been spared to ensure the comfort
of the guests, among whom we noticed the Admiral
and Lady Inglefield, the Chief Justice andMrs.:
Rees, Col. Vigors, Col. Gordon, Mr. and Mrs. Eu-
genius Harvey, the Attorney General and the
Misses Gray, Dr. and Mrs. Sinclair, Mr. Maroon,
Capt. Castle, Mr. and Mrs. Cochran, Mr. and Mrs.
Dickenson, and many others.

For the Bermuada Royal Gazette.
SIr,-I read, with very great interest, the article
in your number of April 29th, with regard to the
extraordinary and uncalled for disappearance of
the Gibbs' Hill lighthouse. It is certainly a most
remarkable occurrence, and our scientific men
should endeavour to get to the bottom of the mys-
tery. The Bermudas, as most of your readers are
aware, are islands where the planets are well known
to practice the most unwarrantable gambols. It is
but a very little time ago that Vulcan performed
some most eccentric peregrinations round its orbit,
and brought its cranium into such close proximity
with the periwig of Venus that Venus herself was
even set in motion, and, leaving her lofty seat up
above, made her way,1like a meteor, into the office of
the Bermuda Royal Gazette, and before the office boy
could stop her rushed into print with a fureur"
rarely, if ever, equalled. The idea of such a state-
ly planet as Venus taking such a move was more
than many of the gods and goddesses could stand,
and Juno and Minerva have both paid us a visit-
I suppose to see how things are going on in this
world. Minerva, as all your readers must know,
attended the fancy-dress ball, and, we hope, watched
all those young sisters whose interests she seems to
have so much at heart, at least if we can rely on her
letter to you. I had no idea till that evening that
Minerva was such a stately goddess; if many such
came to visit us very often we poor mortals would
have but little chance. By the by, happy thought,
can it be possible that Tally-ho is a god ? there is
such a mystery overhanging him that he may be
one under an assumed name-Mars or Bacchus
alias Tally- ho. There have been things more un-
These eccentricities of the planets, gods and god-
desses may, just possibly, have affected the light-
house in some way or other and caused it also to
take a peregrination; a theory I am rather inclined
to admit, seeing that, according to an advertise-
ment in your paper last week, a lighthouse had.
been found on the Causeway. Now this is a long
distance for a lighthouse to walk by itself: so that
here arises another question in regard to it-was
the man in charge inside the lighthouse when it
made off, and was there any one inside with him ?
These are questions worth going very carefully in-
to. If he was inside, and if he was at the same
time a shining light," it is very probable (unless
the peculiar circumstances attendant upon its dis-
appearance had upset all to the laws of gravity)
that the lighthouse had gone for a little stroll, and
when found on the Causeway was on the way to
visit its sister at David's Island; but we should
now try to solve the question as to why, when the
lighthouse had got so far as the Causeway, it should
have stopped instead of continuing its mad career
to David's Head. The only way in which I can at
all account for this sudden pull-up is by supposing
that the man in charge must have had some one in
the lighthouse with him, and that person must
have been of opposite sex to the man, otherwise, in
my opinion, the lighthouse could never have stop-
ped. Thesetwotenants of the lighthousermust have
quarrelled by the time they reached the Causeway,
and that severe shock to the system would certain-
ly stop any further motion onwards. The only
thing I am astonished at is that the lighthouse did
not then move upwards. As its interior economy
seems to have been so complicated, perhaps the
weights inside were too heavy.
I certainly think this subject should, in the inter-
ests of scienceand for the renown of Bermuda, be

and, as was generally expected, resulted in a vic-

and 570 yards. Hanlan won the race by 6 lengths.
His time was 22 minutes and 5 seconds.
The weather was brilliant, but a stiff northwest

THE TEDIOUS ZULU WAR.
The Daily News' correspondent at Cape Town,
under date of the 22d of April, writes that he has
reason to believe that Lord Chelmsford will ask for
another complete infantry brigade from home, and
that operations await its arrival. This would en-
tail another campaign. Meanwhile the frontier lies
uncovered. Not a single company is available as
reserve. Because of the weakness of the horses,
cavalry marches have been reduced to seven miles
a day. Another correspondent telegraphs that re-
ports of the interviews between the Boers and Si.j
Bartle Frere are unsatisfactory. The foregoing is
in conflict with the general tenor of the intelligence
from the Cape. The Daily News, it should be re-

him on Ulundi. Colonel Crealock moves carefully
forward, and will finally establish himself in the

of merely preparatory movements.

L[iMA, April 16.-Despatches received from Cap-

Peruvian expeditionary force, composed of the cor-

first naval battle of the war took place off the mouth
of the river Loa, the boundary between Peru and
Bolivia, on the 12th instant, between the ships
under his command and the Chilean steam sloop-of-
war Magallanes. After a couple of hours of sharp
firing the Magallanes, a verp fast vessel, turned and
steamed with full speed toward Iquique, where the
Chilean iron-clads are still on the blockade. The
Peruvian ships followed but not being able to over-
take their adversary on account of her superior
speed continued on their way to Arica. The

Prince Henry Reuss and the Prince of Battenberg
had been prominently put forward as candidates.
Some great Powers might oppose the election of
Prince Waldemar, and Prince Reuss was too old.
The Assembly then elected the Prince Alexander of
Battenberg by acclamation, amid a scene of great
enthusiasm. In the evening the town was illumin-
ated. The Standard's despatch from Tirnova says
it is stated on good authority that the Prince of
Battenberg stipulates that Russians employed in
Bulgaria shall retain their posts five years, and
afterward be naturalized if they so desired. A Ber-
lin despatch to the Post says Prince Waldemar's
candidacy for the Bulgarian'throne was supported
by England, but Russia determinedly opposed it.
The election ol Alexander of Battenberg as Prince
of Bulgaria at Tirnova yesterday iq an event in the his-
tory of Europe of more than usual importance. The
erection of Bulgaria into an autonomous principality,
constituted as Roumania formerly was, is the first real
offering which the Russian arms, tempered by the
Treaty of Berlin, have added to the civilization of the
nineteenth century. As we showed yesterday Bulgaria
has been great and powerful on two occasions since the
Christian era, and alter five hundred ears of ignomi-
nious servitude to the Turk she has been freed once
more. The depth of her degradation has been such
that the world must have patience with her future con-
dition. For five centuries her sons have felt the blows
of the Ottoman tax gatherer and her daughters have
been consecrated to the harems of the pachas. That
any vesti.res of the Greek or Latin faiths implanted by
King Simeon, the hero of Bulgaria's first epoch, should
have survived is a tribute to the Christian religion to
which history furnishes no parallel. The fascinations
and allurements which Mohammedanism held con-
stantlv before the eyes of the Bulgarians did not en-
tirely wean them from their faith. Yesterday, alter
all these generations of sorrow, pain and woe, a new
Bulgarian nation appeared the permanency and inte-
grity of which are insured by a paper of state begin-
ning with the solemn invocation :-" In the name of
the Omnipotent God." To the English it rises as
another barrier between the ever menacing shadow of
the Czar and the shreds and tatters of Asiatic civiliza-
tion represented by the Sultan. To the Russian it
means the further elimination of Turkish territory and
the consequent hastening of the grand de&ouement
which is seen ahead in the distant, though ne'er des-
paired-of, future. To all Christendom it proclaims
progress, for the first article, of the Treaty of Berlin
assures the world that Bulgaria will have a Christian
