Whatever your sex or position, life is a .battle
in which you are to show your pluck, and woe be
to the coward. Whether passed on a bed of sick-
ness or in the tented field, it is ever the same fair
flag, and admits of no distinction. Despair and
postponement are cowardice and defeat. Men
were born to succeed, not to fail."
Man cannot afford to be a naturalist, to look at
nature directly, but only with the side of his eye.
He must look through and beyond her. To look
at her is as fatal as to look at the head of Medusa.
It turns the man of science to stone. I feel that I
am dissipated by so many observations. I should
be the magnet in all this dust and filings. I knock
the back of my hand against a rock, and as I
smooth back the skin I find myself prepared to
study lichens there. I look upon man but as a
fungus. I have almost a slight headache in the

to behave. Oh, for a little Lethe !"

The, Gover nor has the honor to inform the H'on-

quested by the lBoard oi Works to recommend to
the Legislature itat provision may be made lfor
granting to the Colonial Surveyor, Mr. Noss,
an annual allowance of 70 per annum to enable
him to keep a horse and a conveyance for use on
the public service,
Since Mr. Ness' first appointment many new

him Secretary thereof-and .-Act _nr:,-.-:-'g for
the maintenance of Steam communication between
this Colony and New York and vesting the Con.
tract thereof in the Board of Works--have added
largely to the Colonial Surveyor's work without any
corresponding increase to his salary.
The Board of Works feel, and the Governor en-
tirely concurs with the Board, that the amount of
work now required to be performed by the Colonial
Surveyor is such that it will be impossible for him
to perform it. satisfactorily unless he has the means
of getting about rapidly trom place to place and
that be cannut be expected to provide those means
at his owb expense.
SThe Governor trusts that the Honorable the Le-
gislative Council will see the necessity of making
adequate provision for this service, as without it,
it will be impossible for the Governor and thle
Board of Works to ensure due efficiency in the con-
duct of the public business of the Board.

addressed to the Colonial Secretary on the 7th ulti-
mo by Dr. Hinson, Medical Superintendent of
the Lunatic Asylum, applying for an increase of
salary and giving reasons why such increase should
be uiranted,
The Govrrnor has carefully considered Dr. Uin-
si<'s statement and is of opinion that, considering,
the amount of work required to be done and of su-
pervision to be exercised by the Medical Superin-
I.endent, the Salary now attach d to ihe Office is
exceptionally low and the Governor recomimenids
therefore that provision may be made for increasing
that Salary to 200 a year.

A serious accident at P"'-" Bay
". Parish, about I last '.i -.-ven-
ing. :a -4 A. N. Lir'htbourn. with her i. ,, ;-v and
niece, were returning to Pagets, and just as they
turned into the main road. at the junction of the
Old Ferry Road, their horse shyed at something
about the cottage built at this place, and in an in-
stant sprang; off the road down a tank about twelve
feet deep. carrying tho' marriage :: tho it per-
sons in it with lim. C i Eldon Outerbridge
and (:".. '- hearing the crash, immediately ran to
the rescue. Mr. John Lightbourn and the driver,
Robert, escaped with .'0.. bruises; but Miss
Lightbonurn was very seriously injured and her
young neice had her left arm broken in two places.
They were quickly taken io Captain Outerbridge's
house, quite near the residence of Dr. T. A. Outer-
bridge, who was soon in attendance. The horso
was not injured. T: kindness of Captain Outer-
bridge and his family and 2: ,. ,, I- was unbounded,
and everything was done to afford relief and com-
fort to the .-'l.- ,. -. A horse and carriage went
over the same bank about two weeks ago. There
is a very low guard wall erected along this part of
the road which is much worn and broken away and
the road is .1_'_ in next to tho wall so that it is
now practically usoless ; had. the wall been of the
usual eighth this accident could not have happen-
ed. -... Board of Works will doubtless with its
usual energy consider the i:- '.i-ly of having a
substantial wall erected all along this curve of the
road and as there is a great deal of I -t -1hi- here
both night and day, it is to be hoped that the ne-
cessary protection will be "'.. -- i on the public
with all convenient speed.

-- Disease Communicated by/ the Saliva of a Do,
that is Apparent!y Not MlLd.
(From the C' ::* -.. -Tribune, Ann. 11.)
Or), of the rest remarkable case.- of acute hydrc
i-b '-. was reported l at r-'-.-,: ;- ihy Dr. G.
Hall, of No. 972 Wabash-ave-nupe. The victim wv
Benny W. [-i-wkins, 9 years of age, living with hi
a, No. 957 Wnaash-avenue, and death on
--' a ter ie;'-ilem sufferings, at 7-40 last eveninB
The remarkable features in the case are two in num
ber : First, the mannorer of inoculation, and,second
ly, the rapidity with which the virus permeated th
sysl'm ard brought on the ,I,- u'i disease, front
v which the only possible relief is death. Prior t
his the little fellow stated exactly how he wa
'. and his statement is corroborated by th
parents and his younger brother, Sam. Last Tues
day noon the brothers were playing with some other
of (hi(r own age and size in a yard in the rea
of their borne. Near to where they were amusin
themselves was kept a large dog of the Newfound
land species, but not of pure breed. The animal i
r-,'.. a young one, and was full of play while th
children were about. The noonday sun was hot
and little Sammy, pitying the dog, which ba
worked its-If into a heat in trying to get loose t
play with the children, went up to it and unfast
j- the chain. T;- p ,---fli" he said, "See
him," and -..t the dog on to his older brother
The animal urW'i -,--,1, and, rushing upon Bennyu
planted his fore paws upon his shoulders. So sud
den was the attack that Benny fell. The dog the
p -v- i and snorted about him, but Benny was badly
frightened and fought him off with his hands a
host he could. The dog had made no effort to bit
him, and did not leave so much as a scratch upo
the boy. Recovering himr-- Benny went into th
house to brush .- .- -.-'. .. but f- lig s bi band
all with the saliva, or froth, which wa
about the animal's mouth, be :- h., .1 his bands first
The boy soon recur--:1i to his play, and nothing wa
... f of the occurrence until Friday afternoon
when F *-'.*. complained of a curious sensation
about the ears, and later at night of pains at th
base of the brain. :-; y he was still indisposed
but not seriously, -,nd along in the afternoon hi
mother asked him to go for some milk. As sh
banded him the pitcher, Benny started back with
tremor, and the ,-,:'-i:, frightened him. Hi
mother ordered him back to bed, and went for th
milk herself. Saturday night he was so ill that hi
parents took him to the office of Dr. Hall, but no
fnluding him ain, i.-,,i.d Dr.Talcott. Theboywa
greatly :--'I, at this time, Dr. Talcolt says, an
', to his parents in the most agonizing way
Some powders were prescribed, but upon returning
home Benny became so much worse that it wa
found .' ,-i1: to give him more than one pow'
der, and that was given only after a severe struggle
Paroxrsms be-an and recurred every five to seve
minutes. In the interim the motion of the bod
was lneer tainr, the ;:', "! dilated, the muscles in
continuous tremor, and the boy apparently suffered
greatly, and made !:. -,-c,. noises. By this tim
the truth was suspected. Benny had told over t
Lis parents the story of the do,'s attack, but n crnld he -.:'. It was finally noticed tha
three of his ;. -"s had been cut, and the wound
must have been quite fresh at Tuesday noon. Ben
r'y then told that he had inflicted the cuts while
whittling out a little boat at his father's workshop
The knife several times, but the wounds in
flicted were so trivial that he did not even bandag
them. They were quite fresh Tuesday noon, for h
remembered that the soap smarted them as he wa
washing his hands. This, then, appeared the solu-
(ion of his illness, ,':i it was at once concluded tha
hydrophobia ha: set in. Yesterday morning Dr
Hall .-!,. was in his father's arms
spitting, and 0- .-..,aly puffing as if he was i
deep waoer and in danger of drowning. He wa
very :' and ca:.,j to the shoulders ofbothbis
father -- : the Doctor. All questions wer-, answer
quite rationally. More medicine was prescribed
but it was found impossible to administer it. H
seemed to crave for water, but the moment it wa
i. i,-:, within his sight a convulsion ensued.
At 11 o'clock in the forenoon Dr. Hall found hi
ri :a flat on his back, with the eyes wi,'e open an
sleepless. T; symptom of acute hydrophobi
was apparent. At 4 o'clock thecouvulsions became
less violent, and a cold, clammy feeling came ove
the extremities, and these symptoms increased until
death ensued. An il-.) ,ir';- feature of the case i
> the fact that the dog was to all appearances perfect
Sly harmless, having manifested no symptoms o
rabies either before or since the communication o
the -.' :.:- in the singular manner described.

last month. She had 590 convicts on board, for the3
most part Nihilists condemned to be -aA ,..A to
the Island of Saghalitn. The Suez Canal Company
raised the question as to ',.. this which
was known to have i.: 1 .'. ,-. merchant, colors on
her last '". from ..-'.'. eilles to 01, : and
which belongs -. i. to the Russiar, Governmeot
nor to the Russian transport service, but which was
freighted for the volunteer fleet, should be _-.i -
ed as a, ship of war. The discussion resulted in the
Nijni Novrogod being treated as a "-1 of war, under
protest of the iT. man Consul. N' .., the question
just raised ,, -,'- a -,... .-n of three days, during
which the convicts on board were ':::"y left to
roast in the heat, which, at this time of the year, is
terrible. Their torture was prolonged for 72 mor-
tal hours, because the Russian authorities hoped to
deceive the Suez Canal Company. I.a i 1'.i. is not
all. The same vessel is to perform the same voyage
with a similar cargo four times in the course of the
present year; and, be it observed, that other ''.I
are engaged in the same traffic. All the 4 .r'
tales that were told during the late war are .-,.ai:,. -
ed by the cold-blooded ::.T. of the Russian au-
"thorities toward the Nihilist convicts. What pre-
cedes refers only to ii".. who are sentenced to
transportation ; but the fate of the Nihilist prisoners
at home is no less horrible, and the exclamation of
the Russian Captain that, if his wards died from the
efl,-crt of the atrocious treatment to which -^
were subject. it would be so much the better for ail
parties, might be ..p'-:.;,riately ri,;'' by the
Directors of every j;. i., he Russian Empire.

SOME iAFRICAN BROTnHERs.-While I was still puzz-
ling myself to account for the close proximity of the
bullets I saw one of our men immediately in front of
me raise his carbine, apparently with the intention of
firing in the air. I then saw that he was aiming at the
top ofa tree. Bang! and immediately afterward clown
fell a nigger, looking something like a huge blackbird
as he fell through the branches. I afterward learned
that it is a favorite trick of theirs, and on that day no
less than six Kafirs had been shot out of trees.--How

fourteenth century a well-educated layman could

did not possess this amount of education. Philip the
Bold (1272), could neither read nor write; ;ut no
other French King, and no King of England, is re-
ported to have been so ignorant. Meanwhile, all
learning that did exist was in the Monasteries.-IHal-

A member of the 1st-20th Regiment, which left
this garrison for Cyprus on the arrival of the 101st,
writing hfem that place recently to a friend here,
"The 20th has sren many changes since we left
Halifax, but it may please you and the Public
generally to know that there has been but little
sickness in the regiment since our arrival in this
much abused country. There seems to be a sur-
prising esprit de corps among our men, for the
general feeling is: I am not going to give up for
every little ailment.' We keep up plenty of exercise,
which I think is the secret of our good health. We
have only had two cases of fever to my knowledge,
and neither of them prove fatal.
The left wing of the regiment, D, E, F, and G
companies went to Malta in the latter part of April.
The remainder started from Mathiati on May 1st
for Troidos, where we are now encamped. We
had a pretty hard march of it, lasting five days,
through some of the roughest country we had ever
seen. There are no roads here, and we had to
travel on a mule track, which was rough at its best,
and over the whole of which we had to follow each
other like sheep going through a gap in a hedge.
Every day we seemed to be going higher, and some
of the hills are terrific. It was grand scenery and
must have delighted those who were riding and had
an opportunity to look around them. As for those
who were walking, they had to look well to their
feet to avoid stumbling, which in many places would
have proved fatal, as, for two days, we travelled on
the edge of a precipice over a deep gully in which a
large'river flowed in the rainy season. The rugged
sides of some of the mountains preclude the possibility
of a path being made over them, and we had to go
around their base. The heat of the sun was strong,
but we had partially been seasoned to this ia Ber-
Mules were employed to carry our tents, blankets
and other luggage. The animals with their Greek
drivers, followed the men, and the bright cavalcade
winding round through the dark mountains presented
quite a picturesque appearance. The bustle and
excitement of encamping at night and then reloading
the mules at five in The morning relieved the
monotony of the march, and served for the time to
keep the men's minds from dwelling on the fatigue
and danger of it. The soldiers' wives, of whom
sixteen were with us, had to ride on donkeys One
poor woman who, with her husband, only joined us
a few weeks ago, was very sick and had to be
carried on a stretcher by Greek camp followers.
They must have had hard work, as the path was too
narrow to permit two persons to walk abreast.
"It is hard to form a correct estimate of distance
here, but it is believed we travelled-about 78 miles
on this march. Three blankets and the bare ground
constituted our bed on the march. but we have
since received two more blankets each. After our
arrival here, hail and snow fell heavily for two days,
and to make it worst for us, the curtains of the
Sepoy tents we are using did not reach nearer than
six inches to the ground. so we almost perished
with the cold. A detachment from Lilies, which
came here to form headquarters with us, brought
beds and additional blankets with them, so they
were a little better off. The weather now is some-
what better, but I hope we will not have to remain
here long, as we are greatly pestered by flying
insects-of all sorts, and are obliged to do fatigue
duty from 7 a. m. to 4 p. m., clearing away dead
trees and stones which abound in the vicinity of the
camp. Water carriers bring water to us from the
bottom of the mountain, about a mile away, on
donkey's backs, but it is a scarce article. I have
seen 36 men wash face and hands in less than two
quarts of water. We always think 'f our old friends
'in Halifax, and they are frequently spoken oi
amongst us."-IIalifax Morning Chronicle, July 24.

CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island, Aug.
13.-The preparations to receive the Marquis of
Lorne and the Princess Louise are rapidly ap.
preaching completion. Six handsome arches have
been erected in different parts of the city by th(
Government., the corporation, the firemen, the Odd-
fellows, and the railway authorities. The public
buildings and most of the places of business will be
decorated, and the illumination will be general
The viceregal party will arrive here in the steamer
Druid on Thursday evening, but will probably nol
land until Friday morning. They will be received
at the Bownal wharf by a guard of honor of th<
volunteers, and immediately on landing will b
presented with an address by the corporation
They will then proceed to the Provincial Building
where an address will be presented in the Legis
lative Council Chamber by the Government. I
was originally intended that they should, afte
receiving the addresses, proceed to the Governmen
House, where they were to reside during their
stay here; hut a dispatch was received to-day fron
Major l)e Winton, stating that they would mak
the Druid their abiding place. On Saturday thb
viceregal party will visit Rustico, a watering-plac,
on the north shore of the island, where they wil
lunch at the Sea-side Hotel, and return to thi
city the same evening. It is understood that th
Governor-General and his party will remain her
over Sunday. Her Majesty's steam-ships Bellero
,phon, Touwmnaline and Griffin will be here during
the visit of the distinguished guests.
PICTOU, Nova Scotia, Aug. 13.-Pictou has oi
its gala dress to-day to welcome the Governor-Gen
eral and his wife. The Druid was sighted at 10.3
A. M., and at 11 o'clock she dropped anchor in th

harbor, closely followed by Her Majesty's ship
Griffin. As the Druid passed the United State
ship Kearsage, the crew of the latter manned th
yards and -hoisted the Stars and Stripes. As th
vice-regal party landed, they were met by Mayo
McLeod and a guard of honor, of the Seventy
eighth Highlanders, under Capt. Daniel Suther
land, presented arms. Entering carriages, the,
proceeded to the Custom House, where an address
was read by the Mayor, at the conclusion of which
and while the party were re-entefing the carriages
Pictou Battery, fired a salute The procession
then formed and passed through the principal
streets of the town, after which the Marquis em
barked at 1 P. M., ard proceeded from Pictoi
landing in a special train for St. Ellarton, where
he. was the guest of Mr. James Hudson, of th
Halifax Coal Company. After inspecting the
mines, the Marquis dined at Mr. Hudson's, thenc
driving to New-Glasgow, where the party wil
take the steamer Dragoon and return to Pictou
The Princess Louise remained on board the Druid

"Nothing is more saddening than an ineffectual
and proud intercourse with those of whom we ex
pect sympathy and encouragement. I repeatedly
find myself drawn toward certain persons but to b.
disappointed. No concessions which are not radi
cal are the least satisfaction. By myself I can live
and thrive, but in the society of incompatible friend
I starve. To cultivate th( ir society is to cherish
a sore which can only be healed by abandoning1
No fields are so barren to me as the men fron
whom I expect everything but get nothing. 1i
their neighborhood 1 experience a painful yearning1
for society which cannot be satisfied, for the hate
is greater than ihe love."
"The blue sky is a distant reflection uf the azur
seienity.that looks out from under a human brow,'
"'That virtue we appreciate is as much ours a
another's. We see so much only as we possess."
There is no remedy for love but to love more."
