randa, from which we extract the following :
Mr Henry Coxwell, the veteran balloonist,
would rather not express an opinion on the
plan of Andree, which he reminds us, and pro-
perly reminds us, reproduces in some points
the scheme which he devised for Commander
Cheyne, R.N, who originated the idea of em-
ploying the balloon in Arctic exploration some
fifteen years ago. These plans were made
public at the Mansion House before Sir Francis
Wyatt Truscott, then Lord Mayor; Sir J Pules-
ton, Admiral Bedford Pim and other scientific
men and Arctic travellers, who knew that the
Englishman, Commander Cheyne, would cer-
tainly have carried out his idea had he been
supported by the English public. Of course,'
says Mr Coxwell, and not without cause,
foreign scientists can easily make a more
favourable impression in Great Britain than
Britons themselves.' How little have we heard
of Commander Cheyne and how much of
Major Andr6e I Mr Coxwell thinks that his
own design which Cheyne was ready to
adopt would have succeeded quite as well as
trying to cross the Arctic circle, and trying,
moreover, to keep a balloon up for a month-a
feat as to duration which has never yet been
accomplished. Nor, indeed, has it been done
for a third of that time, or a fourth, if figures
and facts are to be relied on. However, the
latest aspirants doubtless know more than I do
as to their intentions'."

hENGLAND AND THE SOUDAN.
LONDON, March 21, 1896.-According to the
Times Dongola may bs reached by the Nile expe-
dition in three or four weeks. The military
authorities at O.iro, however, calculate that that
place will not be reached before June. The van
of the Egyptian troops, consisting of 1,200 men,
of which number 500 are camelry, ought to occupy
Akasheh by to-day. They are not expected to get
in touch with the dervishes there. They will re-
main at Akasheh until, by reconnoitering, they
learn the strength of the dervish outposts at Fir-
ket, and are likely to remain until the Akasheh
Railway is completed.
A despatch to the Globe from Cairo says that
the Khedive and Lord Cromer, the British diplo-
matic agent, are working together in perfect har-
mony as regards everything connected with the
Dongola expedition. The Khedive delivers vigor-
ous and patriotic speeches to all departing" troops.
The Blgiin'i-Congo Free State expedition under
the command of Baron Dhanis, which will attack
the dervishes on the Upper Nile simultaneously
with the Anglo-Egyptian attack upon those on
the Lower Nile is an assured fact. King Leopold
will shortly come to London to conclude the ar-
rangements for the advance of this expedition to
the Nile. Baron Dhanis, with a strong force, is

Capt Higgins of the American S S Volusia (on a
voyage from Jamaica, bound to New York with a
general cargo) reports having left Jamaica on the
12th inst, experienced very severe weather from
the time of leaving port. On the 28th the vessel
started leaking badly, (it is supposed that a plate
in the forward compartment must have worked
loose) tried in every available way to stop the leak
but found it impossible to do so. The Russian Bk
Linda Norgenroden coming in sight, made signals
to her for assistance ; she immediately hove to and
Captain Higgins, with his crew and their baggage,
left the ill-fated vessel and were taken on board
the barque. The vessel was then headed for Ber-
muda, made land on the 27th inst and was towed
to Murray's Anchorage by the tug Britannia. The
shipwrecked crew were landed at St George's and
placed in charge of the American Consul.
The United States Training Ship Chase came
into the Harbour of St George's on Sunday morn-
ing last from Murray's Anchorage, where she had
been laying since Wednesday last The Chase left
Baltimore, Md. on March 12th, Capt 0 C Hamlet
in command, for a practice cruise of two months
duration. She has on board 24 cadets, 10 of
whom will receive commission on the return of the
Chase to the United States. They will undergo
the examination for promotion while in this port.
The Chase is under the direct orders of the United
States Treasury Dept and it is by this Dept that
the Behring Sea patrol fleet and other coast guards
are directed. She has a battery of secondary
guns, seven in all, for the instruction of the cadets.
The officers and cadets are as follows:

Commander Cheyne's Popular Entertain-
Notwithstanding the unfavourable weather
last Thursday afternoon, Commander Cheyne
had some forty persons as an audience at the
Gymnasium and Assembly Rooms, Hamilton,
at his entertainment" A Picnic Abroad," whom
he delighted by going through the whole per-.
formance, faithfully shewing each one of the
beautiful views, with appropriate explanations
in his usual happy style. It is a matter for
regret that the weather disappointed so many
of the little folks attending, as these entertain-
ments are highly instructive as well as amus-
Last night Commander Cheyne's Lecture on
"Egypt and the War with Arabi Pasha" was
well attended at the Town Hall, St Georges,
and, as with all of Commander Cheyne's lec-
tures, highly appreciated. By an oversight
the advertisement for this entertainment ap-
pears on first page of this issue, and is, of
course void ; we would, though, direct our
readers' attention to the advertisement (3rd

Cook's Excursion to Bermuda.'
The programme of Cook's Easter Tour to Ber-
muda, leaving New York by the Quebec Steamship
Company's palatial steamship Trinidad," to-mor-
row, Wednesday, April 1st, due at Bermuda Good
Friday afternoon, re-embarking on Saturday, 11th
April, reaching New York on Tuesday, 14th, com-
prises first class accommodation at sea and at the
Hamilton Hotel or Princess Hotel, transport of
heavy baggage and bicycles, 3 carriage drives, and
a steam launch excursion to Ireland Island, and
the services of a conductor all for the reasonable
inclusive price of $75. It is the first excursion of
the kind, to view the Easter Lily in the land of its
floral luxuriance at Easter tide and ought to prove
popular. The programme is attractively got up.
The carriage drives put down are :
1.-The South Shore, passing the Royal Palms
to the Light House on Gibb's Hill.
2.-The Devil's Hole. Residence of the famous
poet, Tom Moore : Walsingham Caves. Admiral's
3.-To St George's Island.
It was at Hamilton, Bermuda, that Tom Moore
"Could you but view the scenery fair
That now beneath my window lies,
You'd think that Nature lavished there
Her purest wave, her softest skies;
To make a Heaven for love to sigh in,
For bards to live and saints to die in."
The conductor may perchance be able to point
out to the Mayor of Hamilton the favoured spot.
We are familiar with Moore's birth place in
Dublin, marked by a special label.
The Cottage Hospital.
It is our pleasant duty to announce that the
Committee of the Bermuda Garrison Dramatic
Society have generously consented to give a ver-
formance of the celebrated play "Caste," onjthe
10th April next the whole of the proceeds to be
devoted to the Building fund of the Cottage Hos-
The performance will be under the distinguished
patronage of His Excellency the Governor, and
we feel assured that all those who were prevented
(by the unprecedented demand for seats) from see-
ing Caste last week will gladly avail themselves
of this opportunity of witnessing one of the best
pieces that has been performed at Prospect.
We understand that this performance will be
the last of the season. We have no hesitation in
assuring the Garrison Dramatic Society that they
will have a bumper house and that their kindness
in coming forward to assist the Cottage Hospital
will be fully appreciated by a grateful public.

Il'At a meeting of the Corporation of Ham-
ilton, held yesterday, a letter from Messrs. S.
Pearson & Son, dated Saturday last, was sub-
mitted stating that as their Steam Dredger
"Majestic" was at once required elsewhere
they could not submit a Tender, as requested,
for the removal of the shoal in Hamilton har-
bour. To remove any misapprehension that
may exist on the subject : it should be stated
that, shortly after active operations had~been
commenced in the Staggs Channel, the Wharf
Committee of the Corporation of flamilton had
a lengthy interview with Mr Hopkinson on the
subject, but nothing practical could be arran-
ged till after the completion of Messrs. S. Pear-
son's Contract with the Colonial Government
of Bermuda. By permission of the Bermuda
Executive the Colonial Surveyor was author-
ized to make a survey of the shoal in Hamilton
harbour for the Hamilton Corporation, which
survey was duly made and handed Messrs. S.
Pearson & Son for a Tender to secure a mini-
mum depth of water of 20 feet, with the result
given above. The Corporation of Hamilton
cannot therefore be accused of any indiffer-
ence in the matter. The fault is not theirs that
the S. D. "Majestic" will leave Bermuda at
an early day without undertaking the work in
W An inquisition was held on Friday evening
last on view of the body of Mrs Frances Smith. at
the residence vof deceased-deceased having died
suddenly in the morning of that day.
A boy, named Whitecross, went to deceased's
house while passing to get a drink of water. On
entering the dwelling he saw Mrs. Smith standing
at the wash-tub doing her work. She looked at
him strangely, never speaking a word, then sway-
ed and fell heavily to the ground. A doctor stay-
ing at the Princess Hotel was hastily summoned,
who, on arrival, pronounced the woman dead. Dr.
Trott also arrived at the house a short time after.-
ward and confirmed the American doctor's state.
ment. Mrs. Smith having suffered from heart
trouble the doctor's opinion was to the effect that
she died of that complAint. The jury, after hear-
ing the medical evidence and that of Whitecross,
agreed as to the cause of Mrs. Smith's death and
returned a verdict of "death due to heart failure.',
Mrs. Smith, who was well and favourably
known, was sixty years of age.
l We call the attention of our readers to the
notice in another column of the concert to be given
on the evening of Easter Monday. This entertain-
ment has been organized by some of the guests of

number of Maxim and Krupp guns.
CAIRO. Egypt, March 22, 1896.-The departure
of the first battalion of the North Staffordshire
regiment for the front to-day was made the occa.
sion of a marked demonstration. The troops
marched from the citadel to the railroad station
through the principal streets, and were loudly
cheered by the English along the route. They
were dressed in service uniforms of sand colour
and wore white helmets. A hundred ladies at the
station waved them good-bye, and all the resident
Englishmen of the city, civil and military, were on
hand to cheer the lads starting for the campaign.
The war spirit is running high. The troops in
Alexandria are to be moved to Cairo in a few days,
and two regiments from Malta will take their
places. The Mediterranean squadron is expected
at Alexandria this week.
The recruiting of Egyptians and Soudanese for
army service goes on vigorously here. Great num-
bers of camels, mules and horses are being shipped
up the river. The entire military staff of the
Egyptian army, headed by the Sirdar. Major Win-
gate Bey, Slatin Pacha and Captain Watson, made
a hurried departure for Wady Halfa to-night,
two days ahead of the date fixed for their depart-
It is rumoured that Hunter Bey, who is advanc-
ing upon Akasheh, has met the enemy.
The tone of the French press here toward the
English, which has all along been hostile, has been
more bitter and intense during the last week.
All the best posted military men in Cairo pre-.
dict that fighting of an earnest kind will take place
in a few days, if it has not already begun.
CAIRO, Egypt, March 23-Despatches which have
arrived from the front state that the vanguard of
the Egyptian army, under Collisson Bey occupied
Akasheh on Friday, the dervishes having evacuat-
ed the town and fallen back to concentrate on
Colonel Hunter will leave Sarras to-morrow for
Akasheh, which will probably be reinforced on the
same day by three regiments of infantry.
Cairo is almost denuded of native troops. A
portion of the Fifth battalion of the Egyptian
army left yesterday for Suez, to embark for Sua-
Negotiations are progressing for forming a corps
of four thousand men from the Arab tribes, which
will be commanded by Sir Edward Zobrab.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 21-The active negotia.
tions going on between St Petersburg and Con-
stantinople make it likely that as a result of Rus-
sian advice a formal protest will emanate from the
Sultan concerning the Nile expedition.
The Novoe Vremya says that neither Russia nor
France will agree to England's using Egyptian
funds for the expedition, and that we are on the
verge of most serious events, thus giving it to be
understood that France is prepared to act.
ONE THOUSAND ESCAPED CONVICTS.
MELBOURNE, March 22-The police here state
that fully one thousand convicts, who escaped
from the female penal settlement at Noumea, New
Caledonia, have reached Sydney and dispersed
among the Australian colonies. The government
will legislate for their exclusion.
Lady Burton Dead.-LONDON, March 23-Lady
Isabel Burton, widow of Captain Sir Richard Bnr-

Judge Thomas Hughes, author of Tom Brown's
School Days," died at Brighton last evening. Judge
Hughes was born in 1823.
SIXTY-THREE TONS OF PENNIF-S;
At. the 168th half-yearly meeting of the Share-
holders of the Gas Light and Coke Compiny held
at Westminister on 7th Feby., the large increase
in the consumption of gas, notwithstanding the
introduction of the electric light, was observed and
special reference made to the automatic gas
machines. The penny in the slot customers con-
sumed on an average 1875 cubic feet a month,
and the amount received from the meters in the
last six months was 30.710. The whole of that
sum was in pennies-8,370,635 in number and
weighing over 63 ton. There was a little difficul-
ty to get rid of so much copper coin, but at present
they did so by the payment of a small percoieta2e.

notice to Pilots and all concerned, that
The New Channels at the Staggs,
and Two Rock Passage,
Have been completed, and were taken over by
the Colonial Government on the four-
teenth of March, 1896.
Pilots are particularly notified,
and requested, to make themselves thoroughly
acquainted with these Channels, and the buoy-
age, (which is uniform with the Admiralty
system, through the main channel from the
Narrows to H. M. Dockyard) viz: Chequered
buoys on the port hand, and black buoys on the
starboard hand, coming from seaward.
The Commissioners also suggest to pilots,
and others concerned, that it is necessary for
steamships to pass through these channel, at a
reduced rate of speed, namely ab(i utfive knots,
and not exceeding eight knots to prevent dam-
age to the channels.

S A HOLIDAY IN AMERICA.
S W. K. MORRISON.
SOwing to a plethora of attractions it is a some-
what difficult matter to know just where to go in
America so as to see as much as possible in a given
time. It is important too to see as well as possi-
ble in a short time. Many Europeans visit Ameri-
e and gain very erroneous ideas of the country
and the people, Many, especially Englishmen,
imagine Philadelphia to be about the centre of
population, when as a matter of fact the centre is
about 900 miles due West, in the neighbourhood
of St. Louis. As to the extent of the country, the
sti m erv s*ts on it.' Another very important mat-
ter to bear in mind is that the American people
are not descendants of Britishers but of Europeans.
The American nation is composed of a conglomer-
ktion of all the races and nations of Europe. Her
'political system is entirely and essentially differ-
ent from that of Great Britain. If they followed
any model it was that of the Dutch Republic.
The visitor will do well to note the fact that the
people of Now York differ as greatly from the peo-
ple of New Orleans as the people of London differ
from those of .Madrid. Another thing, too, to be
noted is that the people do not all speak English.
Louisiana speaks French, New Mexico Spanish,
and so on. The fairest and finest portion of the
United States was obtained from France, and the
greater part formerly belonged to Spain. The
Englishman often complains that the Americans
know naught about the Empire, but the American
Will retort the Englishman knows little about
Atierica, so things are very even between them.
The casual visitor will get along better if he
notes these facts before he steps ashore at New
York, for 'all visitors get off at New Yorc, if for
nothing else than to see Broadway and the famous
(infamous) Bowery. I expect lots of people in
Bermud a think they have done New York.
For my part I have my doubts about it. Not
many have seen East Broadway, Delaney, Divis-
ion, Heater, Henry or Baxter streets, East side of
New York. They are all worth a visit, so is Five
Points, just to get a good view of the poverty,
wretchedness and misery of a great city. He
should see Mott street, just off the Bowery, the
centre of Chinatown. On the Eastside he will
fiid different nationalities following the manners
and customs of their own countries and speaking
their own tongue only, be it either Russian, Polish,
Hungarian, Syrian, Italian, Spanish, Slav, Greek
or French. Here he will find stores where the
particular wares of the nations just mentioned are
only sold. Perchance the proprietor can speak a
little English, but very likely not. The visitor is
general well told of the great things of New
York-the "' Bridge," the Museum of Art, Ameri.
can Museum, Lonox Gallery, Madison Square
Garden, Central Park, the World building, Liber-
ty Statue, Manhattan Beach, Glen Island, and so
on, that all we need do is to mention them. But
there are some I" sights" not so often mentioned
*Well worth a visit. One is the Sailors' Snung Har-
bour on Staten Island, overlooking the Kill von
Kull, where there is maintained a home for all
sailors who have sailed five years under the Amer-
ican flag, And who are citizens of the republic.
Strange to say the trustees have more money than
they know what to do with, in spite of their libe-
ral offer The Joss House and theatre in China-
town ought to Le visited. A visit ought to be
paid one or other of the great hospitals of New
York. The Presbyterian is considered the best.
The large Jewish Synagogue on Fifth Avenue is
worth a visit. One day ought to be spent viewing
the parks of uptown New York, viz., Morningside,
Riverside and Bronx. Washington Bridge over
the Harlem is the finest bridge in the country. A
visit ought to be made to one of New York's pala.
trial hotels. I would recommend the Holland
House. You can probably secure the bootblack or
some other help to shew you the house, and you
will find him pretty intelligent. Some visitors
amuse themselves by dining at different kinds of
restaurants. There are some nice French places
in the vicinity of 9th street and Fifth avenue.
Some are very good and also cheap. Altogether
they are superior to American places at the same
A visit ought to be paid to some of the suburbs
of New York, either the "Oranges" or Engle-
woody in New Jersey, are good specimens. If
Englewood is selected one can easily get to the top
of the Palisades"' of the Hudson and get one of
the grandest views in America. The noble Hud.
son looks like a mirrored lake away far below.
If the visit is a short one a trip up the Hudson
ought to be indulged in, as far as Albany. The
day boat should be selected. Before going, how-
ever, read Rip Van Winkle if you never read it
before. Yoa -will enjoy the trip very much more.
You can continue the journey on to Niagara Falls
from Albany. Of the Falls it is unnecessary to
write, since it is a hackneyed subject, but unless
one is in a great hurry the journey by all means
ought to bo continued down the river to Alexan-
dria Bay and back to New York via the Hoosac
Expenses are the all important study, and no
rule can be laid down, for it will depend upon cir-
ciaminstances how much is spent. The person who
a.ends 30/ on board will spend 30/ more on car
fare, admissions, etc. One is under no necessity
ot hiring cabs or carriages as all points are reach-
d just as well without them, and if in Brooklyn
-the cety of trolleys "-better. One who rides
the bicycle ought by all means to take a spin over
the bridge to Brooklyn, through Prospect Park
and down the Parkway, Boulevarde to Coney Is-
land. The trip to Niagara will cost, say 6, but
watch the papers or better ask at the railroad tic.
ket offices and half that sum may suffice.
A better tour, however, is to see New York
hastily, say a week, and then buy a ticket for
Washington, America's model city. The ticket,
via the Royal Blue line, will cost $6.50 or 27/.
This city has hotels and boarding houses seeming.
ly unlimited. Good board can be had at 28/ per
week.. T1hsea places are in the vicinity of the
large public buildings, and so are quite handy.
The city is splendidly planned, North and South
stjaeet are numbered 1, 2 8 and so on, East and
West street are named alphabetically, A, B, C, D,
E, and the great aVenues are named for States, as
Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or
Indiana avenue. These avenues or boulevardes
cift the.oUior streets io a diagonal direction, and
facilitate movement poross city. The Capitol is
the assumed centre of the city, but the population
has mainly settled in a Northwesterly direction

Mass.;March 20.-Since Brigadier Brewer, who is
at the head of the New England branch of the
Salvation Army, and his corps came here a few
weeks ago, interest in the Salvation Army has
greatly increased. As a consequence there is such
a fall in the attendance at the Swedish Con.

threatened to resign. Several members have
severed their relations with the church to become
recruits in the army, and others are in active pre.
parattion for such a step.

SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY.
From Temple Bar.
"Society" as represented in Johannesburg
is of a decidedly novel description. Without
doubt there are highly educated and altogether
charming people among the residents, both
men and women; but they belong, with few
exceptions, to the professional classes-clergy-
men, physicians. and lawyers, who have left
their native lands and come here, attracted by
the prospect of a larger scope for the exercise
of their various callings. The 6lite. the mine
owners, and original possessors of land- all
millionaires many times over-taking them
collectively, hardly display those qualities
which "stamp the rank of Vere de Vere." The
women are vulgar and illiterate, with dyed
hair and artificial complexions; they wear out -
rageously loud toilets, and are plastered with
diamonds at all hours. Most of them are for-
mer members of theatrical touring companies,
barmaids, or shopgirls, and they are to be seen
all day long driving about the streets in their
gorgeous carriages. The men are principally
of the pronounced Hebrew type, loud in man-
ners and dress, ostentatiously drinking chain-
pagne at a pound the bottle, at all hoars of the
day, and causing the beholder to reflect upon
the quotation from the Lady Slavey" : Can
I not do as I like? Am I not a millionaire?"
The balls given by the 61ite are of the most
sumptuous description; flowers for decoration
procured from all parts of Cape Colony, and
many hundreds are spent over one evening's
entertainment. The suppers comprise every
delicacy that could be had in England-game,
fish, etc., being sent out in the cool-air chanm-
bers of the mail steamers for the purpose. The
cost of a fancy ball recently given amounted
to over 3,000 ; a plush curtain, specially made,
and used for the one evening to hide an un-
sightly archway, costing over 150. It is im-
possible, unless possessed of considerable
means, to live with comfort in a private house
in Johannesburg ; rents are in full proportion
to all other prices asked-enormous. It is dif-
ficult for white workingmen engaged on the
mines to obtain a single room in a tin shanty
under a rental of 4 a month at the very least,
while a small villa of five rooms, built of cor-
rugated iron, will easily let at 13 to 14 a
month, and 50, 60, or 100 a month is cheer-
fully paid for a furnished house, such as one
could obtain in England for 3 guineas a week
at the seaside.
MAURICE HEALY'S IMPEDIMENT.
Tim Healy, the Irish M. P., who was re-
cently relegated to the rear by the M'Carthy-
ite wing of the Irish national party, has a
brother 'who is a very clever barrister. He
has written a book on the revision of the vot-
ing lists which is the standard authority with
English jurists. In connection with that
book a funny incident transpired in one of the
courts at Belfast, Ireland.
The home rulers of that city had wired to
the London headquarters for an able lawyer
to fight their battle, as they considered the
local talent rather light for such a heavy legal
contest. They received a reply granting their
The Conrt opened, and the barrister for the
unionist party, a clever lawyer named Young,
began an able and exhaustive argument why
the names of certain individuals should not
be retained on the list. The home rulers were
wringing their hands in despair, for the man
from London had not appeared-at least no
one had seen him.
As Young continued, rendering quotation
after quotation in support of his assertions,
the poor nationalists became frantic. Sud-
denly there was a lull in the proceedings. A
modest looking young man had arisen to his
feet to ask a question. Nobody knew him.
My Lord, th-th-a-I would like th-
A roar of laughter resounded through the
court room, and even the Judge smiled. The
crier shouted for silence, but the stuttering of
the young man was so funny that it was some
time ere it could be secured. Once more the
"My Lord, just one question. From what
b-b-book does the 1-1-learned gentleman
quote ? "
Mr. Young at once replied, "Healy's Book
"I'm Healy," said the gentleman with the
defect in speech.
The Judge saluted him courteously, the
opposing lawyer shook hands with him, and
the nationalist policy, which had been outlined
as defensive, became aggressive in the hands
of Maurice Healy, whose stuttering had
caused such merriment, with the result that
the only home ruler who ever sat for the dity
ofjBelfast, or probably ever will, was returned
at the following election -Thomas Sexton.
BICYCLE RIDER A BAD RISK.
BosTox, Feb. 12.-The conference of mutual ac-
ciderlt insurance companies ot the United States,
assembled here to discuss the bicycle ridt r as an
accident risk, has finished its deliberations. The
results are disastrous to the bicycle rider. The
companies have unanimously resolved that
bicycling is a hazardous occupation which they
cannot insure against at the present rates of pre.
mianm, and that in future the cycler will pay
double for his insurance or receive less indemnity
or give-up bloyling so far as his accident insur-
aoe is oonaernoed
AMBASSADOR BAYARD CONDEMNED.
No high diplomatic representative of the
United States has ever been so strongly cen-
sured as Thomas F Bayard was yesterday by
an overwhelming majority of the House of
Representatives for the improper speeches
which he recently made in England and Scot-
land. The resolution, which was adopted
after extended discussion and full considera-
tion, is as follows :-
Resolved, That it is the sense of the House
of Representatives tht Thomas F. Bayard,
Ambassador of the United States to Great
Britain, in publicly using the language above
quoted has committed an offence against dip-
lomatic propriety, and an abuse of the privi-
leges of his exalted position, which should
make him the representative of the whole
country and not of any political party.
Such utterances are wholly inconsistent
with that prudent, delicate and scrupulous
reserve which he himself, while Secretary of
State, enjoined upon all diplomatic agents of
the United States. In one speech he affronts
the great body of his countrymen who believe
in the policy of protection. In the other
speech he offends all his countrymen who be-
lieve that Americans are capable of self-gov-
Therefore, as the immediate representative
of the American people, and in their name we
condemn and censure the said utterances of
Thomas F. Bayard.
Severe and direct as this censureis, still more
emphatic condemnation of the offence was em-
bodied in the speeches made in favor of the
resolution, while even among those who voted
against it were many who admitted the im-
propriety of the Ambassador's conduct.
That this extraordinary action of the House
of Representatives ends the public usefulness
of Ambassador Bayard at the Court of St.
James is obvious. It leaves to Mr. Bayard no
other recourse than prompt resignation and to
Mr. Cleveland no other than to accept the re-
signation, or, if not offered at once to recall
The House further marked its disapproval of
our diplomatic representatives running around
the country to which they are accredited to
make foolish speeches by adopting a general
resolution and declaring that such practice
impairs their usefulness as public servants
and diminishes the confidence which they
should always command at home and abroad."
[t is to be hoped that yesterday's action of
the flouse will put an end to a practice that
bids fair to become, a growing diplomatic
abuse.-N. Y. Herald, M11arch 21.
The European defeated by the barbarian is a
pathetic figure; but there is a picturesqueness
about the victorious barbarian as the "St.
James' Gazette" points out: Menelik II. of
Abyssinia is certainly no mean foe. He claims
to be descended in the direct line from the
Menelik I., Emperor of Ethiopia, and son of
King Solomon by the Queen of Sheba. He
succeeded to ththrone in 1889, on the death
of John II., and concluded in that year the
treaty with Italy, which placed his kingdom
under Italian protectorate. He has quarrelled
with the Italians over the text of that treaty.
He seems to be a statesman of great power of
will, for he has consolidated the semi-indepen-
dent viceroyaltips into one homogeneous and
powerful people. So far from disdaining
European ideas, he has cultivated relations
with foreign Powers, notably with Russia on
,religious questions, and it is said that there
are Russian officers serving in his army who
will know how to make excellent use of the
sixty guns captured from the Italians." He
is married to a beautiful and courageous lady
-Queen Tailou, "the Light of Ethiopia."
The Daily Graphic" describes her as a very
warlike lady, who is said to have desired to
lead her body-guard in person to the assault of
Makalle the other day., Travellers who have
seen her speak in favourable terms of her per-
sonal appearance and intelligence. A native
of Semien, she is a member of one of the no-
blest families in Ethiopia. MIenelik fell in
love with her, and has ever since his marriage
been her most devoted slave. Every State
question is referred to her by the King, and
on more than one occasion she has herself
written important State documents. She is
enormously wealthy, and has acquired large
estates as a provision for a rainy day. Since
Makonnen brought specimens of European
sparkling wines from Rome she has developed
decided taste for champagne. She dresses
in Ethiopian costume, but with much elegance
and taste.-Army and Navy Gazette, March 7.
HOW SNAP PUNISHED THE CAT.
I venture to send you the following story of
an Irish terrier which belonged to my late
father, a well-known Cambridge man. One
day at lunch, while Snap's attention was for a
moment diverted from his plate, our favourite
cat managed to purloin some of his choicest
chicken bones. On discovering what had hap-
pened, the dog at once "made for" puss; but
my father said: Snap, remember you are not
to hurt pussy," and all was peace again. Later
in the afternoon, however, the sound of vehe-
ment cat language proceeding from the lawn
called us to the window, and we beheld Snap
holding puss fast with his paws in spite of her
struggles, while he deliberately, and evidently
with the greatest satisfaction, licked her fur
the wrong way.
PROFESSOR GRIERSON ON BURNS.
Professor Grierson, Aberdeen University, pro-
posed the principal toast at the seventh annual
dinner of the Ninety Burns Club, held in the
Royal Hotel, Edinburgh. Mr. Robert Cox, M.P.,
occupied the chair, and the croupiers were Mr.
Dalziel Pearson. W.S., and Mr. Alexander Ford.
About one hundred gentlemen were present. After
the usual loyal and patriotic toasts from the chair,
Professor Grierson, in giving "The Immortal
Memory of Burns," said-Gentlemen, it is impos-
sible for me not to appreciate most fully the hon-
our you have done me in asking me to be present
to-night and to ba the proposer of this great toast.
It is, indeed, natural that a stranger should feel it
a great honour, and also a source of no small trepi-
dation to be asked to come to Edinburgh and ad.
dress an Edinburgh audience, Edinburgh is still
* the Shiloh of Scottish history and Scottish letters
as it was 110 years ag'o when Burns came here to
run the gauntlet of Edinburgh criticism, and re-
ceive in its capital the homage of his country. If
time has robbed your eihy of some of its brilliance
as a living centre of literature and science ithas
in the interval clothed it with memories yet more
glorious and moving than those which appealed so
forcibly to his sensitive and patriotic heart, At
the end of his great and terrible novel, Le D6-
bacle," M. Zola tells us th at after the madness of
war and the tempest of the commune had past, it
was to the paysan d3 cerveau solid, the sane and
thrifty peasant that Frmnc turned to rebuild her
shattered empire. There are not wanting signs
that the whole liter-ture of Europe is threatened
with a moral and spiritual catastrophe. As when
the religious fervour rous.l by the Reformation
finally burnt itself owt there succeeded a period of
scepticism and licentiousness; so to all the high
hopes of this century, its political and scientific
and artistic revolutions succeeds a spirit of weari-
ness and despair. In that case it is well for the
hope of moral and spiritual regeneration that once
in the world's history the pe-isant h ts also been
the poet, and that all the primitive and imperish-
able instincts and passions of tha human heart
have been given winged and iramortal uttermnoe
for the healing of the n itioni in the poetry of
Robert Burns, whose ua lY.i, memory I now pro-
Rev. George Murr iy, Siuchie, proposed "The
City of Edinburgh." Mr F R Elliot, "The
Ladies": reply, Mr E F Newlands. "The Per-
formers," Mr D L Johnstone; reply, Mr. Jas.
Lumsden. A long musical programme was then
gone through. The proceedings lasted till early
in the morning.
DEEPEST WATER EVER FOUND.
Some spots have recently been founl in the
South Pacific Ocean where the water is deeper
than anywhere hitherto known.
Her Majesty's surveying ship Penguin, while
returning from the Tonga group to New-Zea-
land, has sounded in three places where the
depth exceeds 5,000 fathoms. Up to the pre-
sent the deepest wafer found was to the north-
eastward of Japean, where, in 1874, the United
States steamer Tuscarora obtained a cast of
The Penguin's soundings are 5,022, 5,147, and
5,155 fathoms. The increase is, therefore, 500
fathoms or 3,000 feet.
These soundings are separated from one an-
other by water much less deep, and the holes
may not be connected. The distance from the
two extreme soundings is 450 miles. Speci-
mens of the bottom were recovered from the
two deeper soundings, and prove to be the usu-
al red clay found in all the deepest parts of the
These soundings afford additional evidence
of the observed fact that the deepest holes are
not in the centres of the oceans, but are near
land, as two of them are within 100 miles of
islands of the Kermadioc group, and the other
not far from a shoal. Doubtless deeper depres-
sions in the bed of the sea are yet to be found,
but the fact that this sounding of 30,930 feet
shows that the ocean has depressions below
the surface greater than the elevation of the
highest known mountains is perhaps worthy
TilE SURGICAL VALUE OF THE NEW
At a meeting of the Royal Photographio Society,
London, at the close of January, the latest results
of Professor Rintgen's no famous process, as ob-
tained by the experiments of some of the members,
were exhibited for the first time. The most im-
portant were the plates sent by Mr. J. W. Gifford,
of Chard, a corresponding member of the society,
who is busily prosecuting his researches in this
new field. Two or three of the plates were those
of human hands, but one of a foot taken recently,
may be described as the first application in Eng-
land to medical purposes of Professor Rdntgen's
discovery. This photograph revealed on one of
the bones a protuberance which caused a malfor-
mation of the great too. Previously to the taking
of the Photograph the deformity had been attribu-
ted to an enlarged toe-joint, so that the value of
the new process in medical science is at once de-
monstrated. Another interesting plate was one of
two metal discs, almost touching. A black spot,
or flash mark, between the two indicated, accord.
ing to Mr. Gifford's theory, that an electric dis-.
charge had taken place. Other negatives taken

PERFORMANCE AT THEATRE ROYAL, PROSPECT.

gave their third performance of the season at
the Theatre Royal, Prospect Camp on Monday
and Tuesday 23rd and 24th March, when the
celebrated and popular comedy entitled
"Caste," by T. W. Robertson, Esq., was pro-
duced. The performance was under the dis-
tinguished patronage of His Excellency Gen.
eral T. C. Lyons, C. B. and Vice Admiral J. E.
Erskine, R.N., and on both occasions large and
enthusiastic audiences filled the little theatre
to its utmost capacity and in more senses than
one the performance may be looked upon as
one of the Society's most brilliant successes.
The play consists of three acts but the number
of characters is comparatively small and the
various parts consequently more lengthy and
difficult. The plot is by no means an intricate
one and though the comedy is not so laughable
as some of those which have preceded it it was
most interesting and we can find nothing but
praise to bestow upon all those who took part
in it, all of whom have previously appeared on
the '--tne of our premier house of entertain-
mnent and won laurels which they have con-
siderably added to by this last appearance. The
part of the heroine, Esther Eccles, the beauti-
ful, loving and devoted girl who works so hard
to keep her unprincipled old father from want,
was allotted to Mrs Moore Lane and could not
have been placed in more capable hands. The
impersonation was highly realistic and the au-
diences were not slow in shewing their appre-
ciation by repeated and well deserved applause.
Mrs tHopkinson was quite up to her usual form
in the re e of Polly Eccles, the lively and amu-
sing sister of the heroine, which she played in
a manner of which we cannot speak too high.
ly and the enthusiastic reception accorded her
was no more than her very finished and clever
acting fully deserved. The part of the Mar-
quise de St. Maur had a very able exponent in
the person of Mrs Ambrose Gosling and this
lady has seldom appeared to greater advan-
tage than as the proud, disdainful and highly
connected noblewoman who spurns the lowly-
born object of her son's affection whom she is ,
afterwards so ready to receive as a loved and
loving daughter. For his performance of the
part of the drink-sodden, maudlin old "pot
house politician Eccles, we cannot find words
of praise and congratulation sufficiently ex-
pressive of our admiration for Lt.-Col. Moore-
Lane whose acting was simply perfect, the
large audiences were in raptures over it and it
is not too much to say that no one so talented
in this respect has ever appeared in any per-
formance in this colony. On his first appear-
ance at Prospect Theatre we expressed an opin-
ion that Surgeon Major Ford would prove a
valuable acquisition to the Society and our an-
ticipations have been more than realized for
his Sam Gerridge, the gasfitter, Polly Eccles.
lover, was a clever piece of acting and he de-
serves the most hearty congratulations on his
unqualified success. The part of the Hon.
George D'Alroy, the young nobleman who
marries old Eccles' eldest daughter, was un-
dertaken by G. M. Bullen Smith, Esq. and
though the part-that of the hero of the play-
was a difficult one, it was played in a most
praiseworthy manner and gave evidence of
much careful study. As Captain Hawtree, the
cool, calculating society-man, G. I. P. O'Shee,
Esq., was a decided success and has every rea-
son to be well satisfied with the favourable im-
pression he has made as an actor of consider-
able talent. In conclusion it must be added
that the piece was very well put on, that ex-
pressions of satisfaction were very general and
that the arrangements were, as usual, all that
could be expected.
Bermuda Hunt Club Races.
A most successful race meeting arranged by the
Bermuda Hunt Club took place at the Shelly Bay
Race Course on Friday last, 27th March, under
the patronage of His Excellency General T. C.
Lyons, C.B., and Vice Admiral J. E. Erskine.
The meeting was originally fixed to take place on
the 19:h March but it was found necessary to post-
pone it and there was not a few croakers who were
ready to predict that the postponement would
prove to be unfortunate and indeed when Thursday
26th was wet and unsettled it seemed that the pre-
dictions were likely to be verified and very few
were at all sanguine of getting a good day's sport
on tL.e morrow. Friday morning however broke
bright and clkar and the day was a glorious one
throughout and not only so far as the weather was
concerned but the day's sport has boen said by
many who are competent to judge to have been
the best ever known on the shelly Bay Course.
The card comprised no less than eight events the

A noteworthy feature of the meeting was the
splendid starting, which was done by W Easton,
Esq, and much of the success attending the var-
ious events is no doubt due to this gentleman's
skilful manipulation of the red flag. Edmund Gos-
ling, Esq, and Lt Bowen, R E, were the Judges,
Lt A W Bluck, B V R C, was Clerk of the Course
and Scales, and Surg Capt Curtis, A M S, and
Clarence Peniston, Esq, were Handicappers, and
the whole of these gentlemen performed their var-
ious duties to the general satisfaction. At the
conclusion of the meeting the horse Lansing, the
principal winner of the day was sold by auction by
J A Conyers, Esq, realizing 49. Euchre and
Radcliffe were also sold at the same time, being
knocked down for 7 and 15 respectively. The
very arduous and responsible duties of Hon Secty
were most ably carried out by Capt Cardew, A S C,
and the Club must again be congratulated on hav-
ing so indefatigable a secretary, and the success of
the meeting is no doubt due in a great measure to

Temps, commenting upon the resignation of the
Foreign Office portfolio by M Berthelot, says if
the recent foreign policy was not a success, the
change has been inspired by M Bourgeois, Prime

NICE, March 29.-There were twenty-three
starters in the yacht race here to-day for the Prix
D'Honneur. Among the large yachts Britannia,
was the only absentee, and the reason she did not
start was that to-day was the anniversary of the
death of the Duke of Albany. Her owner, the
Prince of Wales, attended services held at Cannes
in memory of his brother. There was a strong
breeze in the morning and when the yachts star-
ted they were under reefed mainsails and working
topsails. The race promised to be excellent, but
the wind did not hold ; before the first round was
finished it lost so much of its weight that the reefs
were shaken out and club topsails set. Ailsa
crossed the starting line four minutes ahead of Sa-
tanita and continued to gain slowly throughout
the first round at the end of which she was eight
minutes in the lead. The wind became flukey and
the twenty-raters Stephanie and Sapphire began
to crawl up on the big cutters. Ailsa crossed the
finish line first and won, followed by Satanita,
Stephanie and Sapphire. Stephanie was awarded
the race on time allowance, Ailsa was second and

bans discredit the rumour.
LONDON, March 20-Detailed accounts from
Kiandgyin show that a riot on a large scale among
soldiers there was only prevented by the explosion
of a magazine. An insurrection was planned, the
programme being to kill in command and get pos-
session of the magazine and rifles and then master
the city, the foreign instructors first being sent
away by boat to Shanghai. The work already had
commenced when the principal of three magazines
containing about 7 tons of gunpowder blew up.
The cause of the explosion is not known since all
in or near the magazine, about 300, were shattered
to pieces. The catastrophe was so terrible that it
completely cowed the soldiers and they desisted
further acts of violence.
CAIRO, March 30-Gen Kitchener, the Sidar of
the Egyptian army, and his staff arrived at Wady
Halfa yesterday. The second column of the expe-
