The following Messages from Hi Excellency the
overpor were delivered by-the Colonial Secretary '
No. 5.)
governor twd Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to forward for the
consideration of tbe Honorable Legislative Coonn
il a copy of a letter dated 20th November, 1879,
addressed to him by tLe Coloniul Surveyor, request-
ng him to bring under the consideration of the
egislaturle the difficulties lie encounters in trying
o carry out the mulltifaious duties now acc'imu-
aled on his office, and the heavy expense to which
be Is put In trying by rnpility of movement to giv4
he necesaty amount o(f supervision to the many
catered public works which are being carried on
under his charge.
Mr. Ness points out that since he was appointed
o the office he now holds in 1868, the duties ol that
office have been greatly multiplied and that much
ew work in connection with the Board of Works,
ntl.the contract for Steam Communication wit h
Ow York,' has been superadded to what may. bd
prnsidered to be the usual duties of a Colonial Sur4
Under these circumstances Mr. Ness expresses
Shop that some reasonable money allowance may
be'made to him to enable him to keel a horse and a
.opveyance to take him about from place to place
td'direct the progress of Public Works, and to ex-
e'rcise a vigilant supervision over Contractors and
Workmen and yet leave him sufficient time to pre-
iVare the Reports anrd Plans and Estimates which
atre required for the information of the Colonial
Government and of the Legislature.
The Governor thinks it right to remind the Le,
gislature that anew Prison is about to be construct-
e. Il Hpmilton entirely on Plans and Estimates
furnished by'the Colonial Surveyor, and that tlhe
erection of that building will be carried outb under
Mr.. Ness' personal supervision, and that the Hon.
oriable House of Assembly has asked the Governor
to procure for it Plans and Estimates of a Clock
Tower in connection wkh the Sessions' House and
that those Plans and Estimates must be prepared
l5 the Colonial Surveyor and that the Clock Tower
also must be carried out under the Colonial Sur-
veyr's, personal supervision, while he is at the
same time charged with the task of superintending
Se' malatepance and upkeeping, of all the Public
ads'and all the Public Buildings in these I.-
aodsi, and keeping the records and conducting the
oorrespopdence of the Board of Works.
The Governor thinks that it will be impossible
for the Colonial Surveyor to perform efficiently all
0a mass of work without incurring an eipendi.
ttre for conveyance from place to place which the
Colonial Surveyor can scarcely be expected to pro.
vide from his own resources, and theGovernor
(felasconfident therefore that it will be for thao iter-
eats qf this community that a moderate annual al-
loywace should be made to the Colonial Surveyor
0o defray the cost of keeping a horse and a convey-
ance to enable that officer to perform bis-public
duties with satisfaction to himself and benefit to
* Colony. -

Govenror and Commander-in-Chief.
.The Governor has the honor to forward for the

Council a copy of a letter dated 17th Novr., 1879,
addressed by the Medical Supemintendent of the
Lunatic Asylum to the Colonial Secretary request-
ing bthat official to submit to the consideration of
thte Qovernor the Medical Superintendent's Peti-
tlon for an increase of salary and requesting the
Colonial Secretary to move the Governor to lay the
petition .before the two Houses of the Legislature
and to recommend it for their favorable considera-
tion. -
Tle eMdical Superiatendcnt points out that since
hie w appointed tohthe charge eof the new Asylum
hia duties have been so much increased that be is

debarred from availing himself except to a very li-
mited extent of the privilege ol private practice
vhich he had looked fo ward to as a help to his
official income.
The Governor has much pleasure,in bearing tes.-
imony to the zealous manner in which Dr. Hin-
ion as Medical Officer of the Asylumn attends to the
health and the well being of his patients and as
neral Superintendent and Manager exercises an
active supervision over the internal discipline
d expenditure and protects the interests of the:
ublio and the Governor would see with pleasure a
moderate increase made to Dr. Hinson's salary.

Wednesday, 3rd December, 1879.-Ordered, that
Mr. Fraser be a Member of the Committee on

Mr. Fraser gave notice to move in Committee on

mended to the House to order a Bill to be brought

A Message from His Excellency the Governor :-
(No. 8.)
Governor and Commander-in- Chief.
The Governor has the hbnor, In compliance with
the request conveyed to him in a Message from the
Honorable House of Assembly, dated 1st instant-
to lay before the Honorable House the accompany-
inug extracts from a Despatch No. 82, dated Ber-
muda, 15th September, 1879, addressed by him to
the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for the
Colonies-and from the Despatch in reply thereto
No. 82, dated Downing Street, 17th October, 1879,
addressed to him by the Secretary of State:-the
first, asking for instructions as to whether Colonial
Officers desiring to obtain an increase of salary
might be allowed, with the Governor's permission,
to address petitions praying for such increase to the
Legislature,-and the second, giving the reply-
that it is impossible for the Secretary of State to
sanction any such application to the Legislature
unless made by or through the Governor.
The Governor feels sure that the Honorable
House of Assembly will see in this decision no de-
sire whatever to curtail or in any way to diminish
its powers or its privileges or its dignity, but that
en the contrary its power to decide primarily what
charges shall be borne by the finances of this Co-
lony will be more fully respected and the dignity
of its position will be more completely maintained
by following in this Colony the universal rule of
the Civil Service in requiring that all applications
from Civil Servants asking for an increase of sala-
ry should reach the House of Assembly through
the Governor rather than through aa Inferior chan.

' The Steamer Alpha, Captain Doane, of the Cle-

from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The appearance
of the Alpha is Yacht like, being rigged as a three-
masted'Schooner carrying considerable canvass,
-we understand, as much as an ordinary sailing
vessel of her size, and that her rate 6f speed under
steam is 8 knots, but with. the addition of sails she
has logged 12.
Her certificate allows her to take 50 first class
and 25 second class passengers. Her passenger ac-.
commodation have been arranged with the idea
of giving the greatest comfort possible in a steam-
er of her tonnage. She has freight capacity of
2,500 barrels.
The principal owner, C. F. Clements, Esqr., is
is on board for the purpose of establishing agencies,
arranging rates of freight, &o., particulars of
which will shortly be published.
Mr. Clement's informs us the Alpha is the Pion-
eer Steamer only, and that it is the intention of the
Company to place a larger steamer on the route
should the requirements of the trade demand it.
She goes hence direct to St. Thomas thence to Bar-
badoes via St. Kitts and Martinique. She will
probably return here about the 10th proximo.-

An accident of a serious nature occurred on Sun-
day night at the house of Mr. James Lindley,
Warwick, whereby two of his sons lost their life.
It appears that Mrs. Lindley told the eldest boy,
about 10 years of age, to light the stove while she

While leaving the Race Course, Shelly Bay, on
the evening of Thursday last, a colored man named
Isaac Robinson, residing in Devonshire, received a
severe bayonet stab in\ the abdomen from some
party unknown. The man still lies in a very criti-

The annual Athletic Sports of the Regt. came
off on Tuesday last, the attendance being more
numerous than could have been expected consider-
ing the unfavorable state of the weather.
The first four or five events were got through
in heavy rain which accounted for the throws and
jumps not being up to the usual standard.
The Committee worked together most admirably
the result being that, although the Sports com-
menced later than the hour named in the Bills,
the whole Programme (including an extra Tug of
War) was got through by 5 o'clock, when the
Prizes were distributed by Lady Laffan who, very
kindly, braved the inclemency of the weather for
this purpose. The general arrangements of the
ground were most" excellent and reflected great
credit on Messrs. Hedingham, Hadow and Chauncy,
and it was the general opinion that the change of
-locality was decidedly for the better. The differ-
ent events were decided as follows:-
No. 1.-Putting the Shot- With a follow.-1 Doolan,
2 Burns; without afollcw-l Doolan, 2 Burns.
Won by a put of 28 ft. 4 (with a follow), which
was good, considering the greasy state of the shot
and ground, and 21 ft. 11 (without a follow).
No. 2.-Throwing the Cricket Ball.-1 Huggins,
2 Taylor.,
Won by Huggins-distance 87 yards.
No. 3.-Non-Com. Officers' Race, N00 yds., accord-
ing to service, 5 yards start over 10 years, .10
yards over 15 years.-1 Corporal Snedker, 2
Corporal Carroll, 3 Corporal Ellison.
Won easily-time 21 seconds.
No. 4.-Hurdle Race, 200 yards, over 10 flights.-
1 Parr, 2 McDonnough, 3 Taylor.
The hurdles being pretty stiff and the ground
slippery, falls were the order of the day. Parr,
however, took all his hurdles in grand form, led
all round, and won quite easily.
No. 5.-High Jump, with a run.-l Marchant, 2
The state of the ground was against good jump.
ing, and Marchant won with only 4 feet 5.
No. 6.-One Mile Race, open to the Army, Navy
and Royal Marines.-1 Lt. Molony, 2 Fogg,
19th, 3 Blanehard, Royal Marines.
Fogg made the running till the last lap, Lieut.
Molony waiting on him, until entering on the last
lap when Lt. Molony made a fine spirt and won
No. 7.-Three-Legged Race, 100 yds.-l Fisher
and Manning, 2 Woodthorpe and McDon-
nough, 3 Burns and Wilming.-
Only three couple came in, the remainder proving
the truth of the old proverb as to two being com-
pany and three none.
No. 8.-Officers' Race, 100 yds., Scratch under 10
years service, 1 yard per every year over.-1
Lt. Molony, 2 Lt. Fearon, 3 Lt. Chauncy.
Seven came to the scratch-Molony winning a
close race by about a couple of yards.

No. 10.-Long Jump with a run.-1 Kedger, 2
Joyce. Distance.
No. 11.-Tug of War, teams of 16 men each, open
to Army, Navy, Royal Marines and Dockyard.
No teams having entered a scratch team of the
Royal Navy was got up on the ground which was
pulled over easily by the Regimental team of the
19th Regt., who pulled in the style of late adopted
at the principal Athletic Meetings in England-viz.,
sitting down-while the blue jackets pulled stand-
ing, which probably accounted in some measure for
the 19th winning so easily.
No. 12.-Flat Race, 100 yards, open to all ranks.-
1 Dews, 2 Harley, 3 Parr.
A very good itae. Dews ran in very good form
and won rather easily.
No. 13.-Married Men's Race, 150 yards, handi-
capped, 1 yard start for every year's service
after 10 years.-1 Corporal Carroll, 2 Grimes,
3 Rubotham., *
Only three entered.
No. 14.-Wheelbarrow Race (men as barrows-
wheels allowed) .100. yards.-1 Snedker and

This race was altered by the Committee to a flat
race, Parr leading all round and winning easily.
No. 19.-Flat Race, half a mile, open to all ranks.
-1 Parr, 2 White, 3 Harley.
Harley led a good part of the distance, until
about 200 yards from home, when he was passed
by Parr and White, Parr winning easily.

of a mile.-1 Pvt. Marchant, 2 Corpl. Carroll.
No. 20 (Extra.) "Tug of War."-Officers of Pros-
pect vs. Officers of St. George's.
This was the most exciting event of the day and
was won by Prospect in the third pull, after a
severe struggle of 27minutes, St. George's looked

the heavier team and at one time had their oppo-
nents within little more than au inch of the mark,
but Prospect stuck to it in the games manner pos-
sible and gaining lost ground, inch by inch, won
the pull amid a scene of great excitement.

As several of the events of the Races at Shelly
Bay on Thursday last are not yet settled, we prefer
waiting a week for a correct statement, rather than
giving a garbled account to-day. They were, on
the whole, the best contested races, to our know-
ledge, ever run in Bermuda.

This Cathedral, erected fromdesigns of the late'
Sir George G. Scott, R.A., (foundation stone laid
by the Duke of Buccleuch May 24th, 1874,) by the
Trustees of the late Misses Walker of Drumsheugh
was consecrated on the 30th October. The build-
ing holding two thousand was crowded. Choristers
from the Cathedrals of York, Durham, St. Asaph
and Ripon assisted the Cathedral and Local Choirs |
under the direction of Mr. J. H. Collinson, Mus. |
Bac., Organist. Upwards of one hundred and |
fifty clergy were present in their robes. The Bish.
op of Peterborough preached the sermon at the
Dedication Service, John IV-24, on the spirituality
and sincerity which are inherent in christian wor-
ship. The Bishop of St. Andrews preached the
afternoon sermon, Matthew XII-42, Christ con.
trasted with Solomon. "Repentance is given
through the preaching of the Gospel, and through I
that only; and to the truly penitent forgiveness of |
sins is everywhere secured in and through our
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Is there any that I
can forgive sins but GoD alone P We know of none.
And after this life may He, who is the King of
* Glory, receive you up into His heavenly temple
to be sanctified and blessed for ever and ever in
His visible presence with the Glory which He had
with the Father before the world was." In the
evening the Clergy were entertained by the laity
of the Diocese at Dinner in the Waterloo Hotel,
Covers for 320, the Marquis of Lothian in the Chair.
The Miss Walker's left Estate Real and Personal
in all 218,401 out of which 40,000, or such fur-
ther sum as their Trustees might deem expedient,
to be employed in the erection and completion of
a Church in Edinburgh to be called the Cathedral
of St. Mary.
120,000 of Trust funds have been ex-
pended, the flanking towers at the West, which
have been built for about 100 feet, are intended to
be carried 110 feet higher, are estimated at 6000
each. The Chapter House has not yet been built.
The edifice is cruciform. A massvie tower and
spire rise from the centre of it to a height of 300
feet. The bells, ten in number, named to repre-
sent the virtues-the number of changes taken to
be 453,600-were presented by Dean Montgomery.
The organ constructed by Messrs. Willis & Son, on
the specification of Sir Herbert Oakley, is placed in
the North Transept. Total length 278 feet, great-
est breadth 98 feet, ceiling of Nave 71 feet. The
Cathedral, built of Drumoreanaid Polmaise free-
stone, is in the early English Gothic, and is rich
and pure in its details.

The Barque Elza Bares, Captain Hollis, in 5 days
from New York, took a Pilot off Somerset on Tues-
day morning last, but did not reach St. George's
till Thursday in consequence of heavy Easterly
gales and an accident to the Tug Britannia. It
seems that in passing the line from the Eliza Barse to
the B. it fouled in the fans of her propeller and
from the high wind which prevailed, and the
heavy s'a which was running, the line bad to be
cut and the B. returned to port to clear her fans.
The E. B. brought her full load of cattle in ex
cellent order.
| We are indebted to Captain Hollis, for a file of
New York papers of the 26th ultimo.
The Steamer City of Richmond, belonging to the
Inman Line, was towed into Halifax on the 24th
ultimo by the Steamer Circassion. The Ciy of
Richmond when on passage from Liverpool to New
York encountered much heavy weather. On the
night of the 20th November, had her second officer
Mr. Egnar, washed off her deck and drowned, and
' on the following day, when 180 miles from Hal-l
fax and near Sable Island, her abaft was broken.
She left Liverpool on the 13th Nov. with 1l cabin
and 617 steerage passengers.,
A large value of American gold coin was
brought to New York from Europe on the 24th ul-

To the Editor of the Royal GasetUe.
I DiAn MU. ETrroB,-As my good man promised
that I should give an account of the toilets at the
race meeting, I suppose I must, though what busi-
ness he had to make such a promise without con.-
sulting me, 1 cannot think.
As the weather has turned very cold, coals seem
to be much in request, witness the coalskuttle hats
and predominance of black in dresses. I cannot
say the former are picturesque ;yet some fair faces
looked exceedingly pretty peeping from the pale
blue linings so much approved of. "
To descend to details Madame Mephistopheles
was attired in a rich silk costume, whose make
spoke well for the fashion of the infernal regions,
while not far off I spied a demure but elegant blue-
bird, whose glossy sheen shone in the bright sun.
I looked admiringly at a sweet bright flowergarden,
relieved by dark green foliage-until a gray phan.
tom gracefully gliding by withdrew my attention
for a minute. I turned again to behold a charming
speckled bllackbird with a redbreast, while not far
off was a combination of black and antique gold
which greatly took my fancy. 1
Amongst the hats I noticed some novelties, one
trimmed with sea-weed had a strange effect-ano-

other, a mushroom Gainsborough a la Kitchengar-
den was most becoming. One hat was guarded by
so alarming looking an animal that I was too much
alarmed for further scrutiny. Birds abounded, one
lady especially wore a large bird with a many
colored breast which was very effective. Among
the prettiest and most fashionable costumes present
I especially noted a few. One young lady wore
an azure princess dress, with a stylish blue and
white fichu. A large white felt hat with a beauti-
ful bunch of cherries, completed this elegant toil-
ette. Another lady wore a dress of a reddish fawn
color, with brocade collar and cuffs and a hat of
velvet and fur. A very stylish costume was a dark
blue figured dress and straw hat trimmed with
blue, all relieved by bright ribbons, the colors of
the jockey which the lady patronised. Two other
dresses which took my fancy were, one a fawn
camels-hair costume picked out with brown velvet
and a mushroom hat to match; the other a crimson
cashmere made up with velvet of the same shade.
And now, Dear Mr. Lee, I think I have exhausted
my memory and your patience, so I will sign myself
your obedient servant,

At the banquet givi-ii in Chicago recently by the I
Society of the Ainv ,,t the Tennessee, Samuel L. I
4Clemens (" Mark T'wain' ) responded as fi.llow; to a a
toast proposed to The Babies :"
," The Babies.".--'- they comfort us in our sor-
row, let us not forget them in our festivities. [Laugh-
ter.] I like that. We haven't all had the good for-
tune to be ladies. [l daughter ] We haven't all
been generals or poets or statesmen. But when
toasts work down: to babies, we stand on common
ground, for we all have been there; we have all
been babies. [Laughter and applause.] It is a
shame that for thousands of years the world's ban-
quets have utterly ignored the baby as if he didn't
amount to anything. If you gentlemen will stop and
think a minute; if you will go back fifty or one hun-
dred years to your early married life [laughter] and
contemplate your first-baby, you will remember that
he amounted to a good deal, and even something
over. You soldiers, you all know when that little
fellow arrived at family headquarters, you had to
hand in your resignation. [Laughter.] He took
entire command. You became his lackey, his mere
-body-servant, and you had to stand around, too. He
*was not a commander who made allowances for
time, distance, weather, or anything else. You had
to execute, his orders whether it was possible or
not [laughter]; and there was only one form of
marching in his manual of tactics, and that double-
quick. He treated you with every sort of insolence 1
and disrespect, and the bravest of you didn't dare to say
a word. You could face the death-storm of Donald-
son and Vicksburg, and give back blow for blow [ap.
_plause]; but when he clawed your whiskers, and
pulled your hair. and twisted your nose you had to
take it. [Laughter.] When the thunders of war
were sounding in your ears you set your face toward
batteries and advanced with steady tread; but when
he turned oh the terror of his war-whoops you ad- i
variced in another direction [laughter], and mighty
glad of the chance too. When he called for sooth-
ing syrup, did you venture to throw out any side re-
marks..bout certain service being unbecoming an
'officer and a gentleman ? [Laughter.] No, you got
up and got it. If he ordered his pap-bottle, did you
talk back ? No, you went to work and warmed it.
You even descended so far in your menial office as
to taf~e,-up at that warm; insipid stuff yourself to see
if it was right, three parts water to one of milk, a
touch of sugar to modify thecolic, and a drop of pep-
permint to kill the immortal hiccough. I can taste
it-yet. [Roars of laughter.] Andff How many things
you learned a you went youentalong. Sentimental young
folks still take stock in that beautiful old saying, that
when the baby smiles in his sleep it is because
angels are whispering to himnt. Very pretty, but too
thin. [Laughter.J Simply wind on th b stomach.
My friends, if the baby proposed to take a walk at
his usual hour, 2 30 in the morning, didn't you rise
up promptly and remark, with a mental addition
which would n't improve the Sunday-school book
much, that it was the very thing you were about to
.propose 'yourself? [Roars.] Oh, yes, you were
under good discipline, and as you went fluttering up
'and down the room in your undress uniform, you
not only prattled undignified baby talk, but you
tuned up your martial voice and tried to sing
' Rock a by, baby, in the tree top,' for instance.
What a spectacle for the Army of- the Tennessee
[roars of laughter] and what an affliction for the
* neighbors too! For it isn't everybody within a mile
around that likes military music at 3 o'clock in the
morning, and when you bad been keeping this sort of
thing up two or three hours, and your little velvet
had intimated that nothing suited him like exercise
and noise, what did you say? You simply went on
till you dropped in the last ditch. [Great laughter.]
The idea that. baby don't amount to anything!
-Why, one baby is just a house and front yard by
itself. If one baby can't furnish more business than
you and your whole interior department can attend
to, he is not enterprising. Irrepressible, brimful of
lawless activity, do what you please, you can't make
him stay on his reservation. [Prolonged laughter. ]
Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you.
are in your right mind, don't you ever pray for twins
Yes. it was high time for the toast-master to recog-
nize the importance of babies. Think what is in
store for the present crop. Fifty years hence we
shall all lbe -dead, I trust; and then this flag, if it
still survives and let us hope it may, will be floating
over a Republic numiboring 200,000,000. According
to the settled laws of increase, our present schooner
of State will have grown into a political leviathan
Great Easteru, and the cradled babies of: to-day will
be on deck, Let them be well trained; for we are
L'Applause.] Among the three or tour million
cradlep now rocking on this land are some which
the nation would preserve ages as sacred things, if
we could know which ones they are. In one of
these cradles an utconscions Farragut of the future
is at this moment teething. Think of it. And
putting in the world of dead earnest, unutterable,
but perfectly justifinbl' profanity over it, too.
[Laughter.] In another a future renowned astro-
nomer is bliuking at the shining, -milky substance
with but languid interest, the poor little chap, and
wondering what is to become of him. In another a
future great hist.,riaii is lying, and doubtless he will
continue to lie till his earthly uilssion is ended.
[L',ughter.J In antlheri a future Pre-ident is

than tlat of what the miseh ef has become of his
hair so early, and in mighty array in other cradles
there are +some 60,000 future office-seekers getting
ready to furnish him the ocasuiou to grapple with
that same old problem a -ee'.,n:l time. And stilin
one more cradle, somewhere under the flag, the
future illustrious commander-in-chief of the Amer-

can armies is so little burdened with his approaching
grandeur 'and responsibilities as to be giving his
whole strategic mind at this moment to, trying to
find out'b ome way to get his own big toe into his
