'li'F B.iIM;iUDA IIUNT RACES.
Friday the 28th June (Coronation day) was the
day fixed for the T.- ;,., Hunt Races to take
place at Shelly Bay. The day was fine, and the
favorable .! l' :" of the morning attracted a
larmre number of spectators ; a i heavy showers
fell in the afternoon but did not in any way inter-
fere with the- i ... which was carried out with
There was an excellent programme and most of
the evoens were fairly f11. *.1 ; while for the Gover-
nor's Cup, "'. George's Stakes, and the Somers
Hurdle Race there were large fields.
His Excellency Sir Robert Laffan, K.( .. .G ,
drove on the Course at noon, and was received by
the Ba- d of the 19th P .-t playing God'Save the
Queen." His Excellency remained until after the
Governor's Cup had been won by Dick, when he
warmly -.:ti-onfr:tl.. Id Mr. Skinner on his success.
The events generally were a question of condi-
tion and the filt,--t i:r':- rr-tt invariably came to
the front. Men and horses had a hot exciting day,
and were glad to wend their way home in the cool of
the evening. We think, now that the Shelly Bay
Race Course is at the disposal of the Hunt Club
from 1st June to 15th December, it would be more
advantageous in many respects to have the annual
meeting in the cool autumn months, whenthe wea-
ther would be more settled, and there would pro-
bably be 'still more spectators than there were on
F *'..v; the hot sun certainly would not be so
likely to keep people away. After the success of
Friday 1 *- ,v should not an autumn meeting be
tried this year as an experiment, say at the end of
November; our naval friends, we hope, will then
be here, and many of them, we are -i ie, will enjoy
a day's sport and lend a willing hand. Let us hope
the Stewards who so ably carried out Friday's
meeting will consider the matter. But we have
rather wanderml ._..L t!.,- course-not gone the wrong
side of a post let us hope.
The 19th Regiment had a good stable and some
horses in excellent condition-we never saw Dandy
look so v'i-l- -.i.ut the glorious uncertainty of the
turf asserted itself and they were not fortunate;
we hope next meeting they will ,aav\ that success
which their skill in riding and training deserves.
Fanny was a universal favourite but disappointed
her numerous backers.
With so zealous a gentleman as Mr. Carpenter
at the helm as Honorary Secretary, the Bermuda
Hunt Races bid fair to assume a permanent posi-
tion as one of principal annual amusements of the
Bermuda public, and he may be congratulated on
having made the meeting of 1878 a great success in
spite of numerous difficulties which we hope are now
overcome. i ., ti:il:-. are due to the gentlemen
who as Stewards so ably carried out the arrange-
ments, which appeared to give universal satisface-
tion and a very pleasant day to many.
The Officers of the Garrison, with their usual
hospitality, had luncheon provided for their friends
in spacious marquees, and during the day tmhe
Band of the 19th Regiment brightened the scene
by many a pretty selection of music. On a..:ouut
of the want of transport the Band of the 46th
Regiment were left at the Ducking Stool, and
others who intended to go by water were also dis-
appointed. Below is an account of each race.

At twenty minutes to 12 the saddling bell rang
for the first heat and at noon precisely 5 horses came
to the post. Dexter appeared to be the favorite at a
shade of odds among the knowing ones, but Soldier,
Sultan and Jack looked formidable opponents; a
good start was effected by Dr. Tucker and it was a
good race, altogether the whole way round. Near
the end of the race Soldier was leading, but just
before the winning post Dexter made the running
and came in level with Soldier, a dead heat. Un-
fortunately Dexter's jockey dismounted on the course
and omitted to ,-eigL out and was consequently
disqualified. Soldier was therefore declared the
winner of the 1st heat. In the Second heat Soldier
came in first, Charley Ross second.

THE BERMUDIAN" NEWSPAPER.-We regret to
notice by last Saturday's issue of the Bermudian that
that NewI ,,pa?r, after an existence of some forty-five
years, has been brought to a close, the present Proprie-
tress tells the public that "the strain of the past seven-
teen years has not failed to leave its mark and we feel
physically unable to endure it longer." M rs. Wash-
ington has conducted the Bermudian since, the great
responsibility of its management fell oi her, in, a very
creditable manner, and she has, at times, surprised us
in overcoming difficulties in its publication, which ap-
neared almost insurmountable. The BUruaudian has
been in the family of the present Proprietress for
nearly the whole period of its existence-the Messrs.
Washington Brother., having purchased the plant, &c.,
from the person who established it, a Mr. Benjamin
Jenkins, soon after its commencement-and for a brief
period not long since, Mrs. W. allowed its management
to pass into other hands. The B. 'n:i./.l' has been a
useful journal in its time.
THE NEW YORK AQUARIUM.-Mr. Haase, the in-

with him a monstrous Sea Cat-rish, given hiim by a
-enutleman, who captured it whilst batlilug near
Mount Langton early in the week.
RARE TROPICAL FISH.-The New York Aqiariumni
has just received from B.. rnmuda a lar:.'-. nurmb.l r
of tropical fishes and anemones. Ainong tie
former are two living devil fish or eight-armed
octopus; and, as they are entirely uninjured, there
is every prospect that these curious marine mon-
sters will be kept alive during the entire summer.
There are also four-eyed crabs, triangular fish and
well salmon, besides a multitude of curiosities from
the deep sea s'un'.Iings off the coast of Bermuda.
With this collection the Aquarium tanks are en-
tirely filled, and present a wonderful aspect to the
ciu:i.',,.. eye of the student.-- 'ew York Herald,
QUEBEC, June 17.-The inquest on Blearidoire

THE NEGOTIATIONS AT BERLIN.
Either the reported outline of the agreement be-
tween Russia, Austria and England in regard to
Bulgaria is ina(r.uraft in detail or !ilt:gethr erro-
neous, or England has repudiated the Schouvaloff-
Salisbury memorandum, n l P u.si :,, mrost remark-
able of all, Tins accepted such repudiation. By the
memorandum England agreed with Russia that
Bulgaria should be divided into two provinces, of
which the one south of the Balkans should "have
a Christian governor and a-government modelled
upon that of an English colony." Further, she
agreed .that the Turikish troops should he with-
drawn" from the province of Southern Bulg:unia
and should "not re-enter it." That at a stroke
removed all Turkish force to the southei'n limits of
the new province, wherever these might be drawn,
while the condition of organization on the model of
an English colony assnurd that the new province,
while not free from Turkey as the Northern Bul-
garia would be, would only have such a nominal
dependercep on the central Turkish government as
fl I, Di):i.ian, Principalities and Servia had under
the Treaty of Paris. But the illegeT agreement
reported by the London Times places the dividing
line of the Bulgarias on the Balkins, makes the
crest of the r:,ugne the southern frontier of Northern
Bulgaria and the northern .frontier of Southern
Bulgaria, and says "the Turks are to have the
right to fortify the Balkan passes and to garrison
the fortified places." That is, instead of the Turks
% ith idra'.ving" from Southern Bulgaria, as agreed by
Salisbury, they are to remain there and hold and
fortify its northern frontier. As it is not possible
to reconcile these two statements there is an error
of great consequence somewhere, and we are inclin-
ed to believe that it is in the Times' report of the
results of the agreement between the two Powers.
It is impossible that the agreement can have been
made as reported with the repudiation of the An-
glo-Russian memorandum, and the ip.inpdiation of
that would be the violation of the condition on
which Russia entered the Congress. Russia refus-
ed to meet the Powers in the Congress on the open
basis of the revision of the San Stefano Treaty.
She demanded- to know specifically the points of
that treaty which England desired to discuss and
the Unatu're of the changes that Eugland prop,'.sed.
The result of that demand was the memorandum
as drawn up, and on the faith of that paper Russia
accepted the Congress. That paper, therefore, is
England's pledge that she. would not demand the
modification of the treaty except as propos,,-d in
her agreement with Russia., The tenth article
of the agreements with Russig was as follwows:--
" England will suggest at. the Congress that Eu-
rope reorganize Bulgaria and will discuss the oc-
cupation of it by. Russia:" This implies that Eng-
land did not dream of maiainining the Turks in
that country. Some coirespandenee published to-
day, and which was written before the publication
of the Anglo-Austrian scheme of settlement, says:
<" England would withdraw from the Congress on
the question of the line of the Balkans and occupa-
tion of the frontier of-Roumelia by Turkish troops.
She would withdraw were Russia to insist ,upon
administrative or governmental predominance in
Roumelia." In the'e sentences the name Roumelia.
serves for the Southern Bulgaria of the Anglo-
Russian agreement, and both these conditions are
against the faith of that agreement. If this change e
has li-een made by an alliance of England and Aus-
tria against Russia it presents a case in which
England, having pledged herself to a certain limi-
tation in particular demands, has joined another
Powerin exceeding that limitation.
When England iould Withdrau,.-The Berlin cor-
respondent of the London Times, writing before
the news of the alleged agreement between Eng-
land, Russiai and Austria, says:--" England would
withdraw from the -Congress heedless a3 to what
the other powers would do on the question of the
line of the Balkans and occupation of the frontiers
of Roumelia by Turkish troops. She would with-
draw were Russia to insist on administrative or
governmental predominance in Roumelia. There is
no other point, I believe, on which England would
break off negotiations.
General Prophecies.-" As to the AEgean Sea, the
war indemnity, the Dardanelles and Armenia, they
are questions pretty well settled. The line of the
Balkans will be adopted. The Turks will be able
to garrison and fortify themselves on. all the fron-
tiers of Roumelia. The Greek element will be
substituted in that province for the Russian. Bos-
nia and Herzegovina wilLbelong to Austria. Ac-
cess to Salonica and the' gean Sea will not be
hamperet. The Antivari question will not be a
cause of rupture. ..
Beaconfieldd Explains.-" The cohesion of Turkey
is substituted for the integrity of Tur'Jwy. An
anti-Sclavonic Roumelia and a progressive Greece
will also assist to restrain further Russian aggre-
sion. Austria will take Bosnia and Herzegovina,
which, if retained by Turkey would only be causes
of weakness and suspicion and would soon fall a
prey to Servia and Montenegro. The publication
of the Anglo-Russian Memorandum necessitated
such complete and frank explanations between
Lord Beaconsfield and Count Audrassy that it may
be regarded as the cause of the thorough under-
standing which now exists."
Considerable Progress Made.-A .Berlin despatch
states that all the plenipot--entiaries were present at.
yesterday's sitting of the Congress. The sitting
lasted,from two until a quarter of five p.m. No-
thing is yet known from Berlin direct of the pro-
ceedings, but -a telegram from Vienna,, and quoted
as from a tru:-t worthy authority, says the general
imnprc.,-i.m froiu the sitting is u mist satisfactory.

points in dispute touching Southern Bnlgaria and
the Antivari question. The affairs of Montenegro
and Servia have not yet been discussed at the pri-
vate meetings. s :
Austria's Little -Game.-A Berlin telegram to the
Post says:-" Austria demands from the Porte
'7,000,00i.i florins for, maintaining the Boasian re-

in such a movement, as influential persons in their

THE CATALPA TREE FOR ECONOMIC PLANT-
The Catalpa (Catalpa bignonioidus), long known and
generally planted. as an ornamental tree, has of late
years begun to attract considerable attention as offer-
ing peculiar advantages for economic planting. The
wonderful durability of the wood of this tree, long ago
pointed out by General Harrison, but until lately im-
perfectly understood : its rapid growth in good soil,
and freedom from the attacks of insects, makes the
Catalpa a most promising subject for general planting
in rich, strong soil in any portion of the United States
south of the 42nd parallel. Further north it often
suffers in severe winters, especially when young; and
inthe New-England States, except in exceptional sit-
uations, the soil is not rich enough to make the plant-
ing of this tree as profitable as that of many others
better suited to reach maturity in that section of the
The wood of the Catalpa is soft, light, close-grained
and susceptible of a good polish. In general appear-.
ance it closely resembles chestnut, but unlike thae
wood, it is easily filled," and showed none of tht
tendency to warp or start which renders chestnut un-
fit for the best cabinet work.
Why the soft wood of this fast growing tree should
,.sirt decay longer than almost any other of which we
have any knowledge, is not clear. And this fact pre-
senta a problem for which a chemist may perhaps be
able to find solution. The fact, however, is undeo-
niable. Samples of Catalpa wood are before me, taken
fromir the top and bottom ensi of a post which is known
to have stood in the ground in Indiana forseventy-five
years, and which are stiHl perfectly sound ; and many
other !ia; atinstances of its power to resist decay are
recorded.-Ne'w YTor Tribune, June 5.
There was lately a meeting of leading silk mer-
chants in China to protest against the introduction of
the telegraph, as they apprehend that it will be in-
jurious to their trade.
