This disease seems to have been
prevalent this season, amfiong the Fall-
_.planted Early Rose potatoes, through-
out these Islands-thereby incurring
a great pecuniary loss to the planters.
tTntil recent years, it is said that the
Blight, as it now appears, was un-
kn6oin.-"'Such is the constitution of
iheb laws of Nature that there is .a
cause for everything existing, (except
GOD). or being brought into existence,
as well as, chiinge of aspect, quality,
condition, etc.-therefore, there is
also a cause for- the potato Blight,
but the cause or causes thereof appear
somewhat difficult to discover or de-
termine correctly. Be what it may,
we would' hazard the idea that there
is no disease whatever, either in the,
animal or vegetable kingdom, without
its alternative-in the shape of a
"specific remedy"---either as a pre-
ventive or restorer. Medical science,
through the aid of reason, experiefiee,
and experiments, puts forth its skilful
.efforts to discover in the invalid the
cause and cure of a certain disease,
more particularly when it assumes
the nature of a prevailing epidemic.
-And yet, notwithstanding the world's
vast experience of the past and pre-
s9nt, there are certain diseases for
which the Medical Faculty have not
yet discovered an effectual specific
remedy. Scientific investigations have
also been made with respect to the
different diseases, etc., such as the
rust, .mildew, potato-rot, premature
decay, deterioration of trees, plants,
seed, fruit trees, etc., to which the
vegetable creation is also subject, in
various instances, resulting frequently
i4 injury or destruction., But what
are the cause or causes of the potato
Blight? is the question we have fre-
quently asked, but so far have obtain-
ed no definite or satisfactory answer.
The second question, a most impor-
taut one,. at the present time, is, "Is,
'ier1 'a preventive remedy for it ?"
And, thirdly, "If there is, what is
that einemdy, or by what means, either
directly or indirectly, which may be
applied to prevent the disease?"
Tese Ire knotty problems to solve.
Withl but a briefly limited experience
in Bermuda, with a 'soil and climate
so different to what we have been ac-
customed to, it would be somewhat
imprudent to attempt the solution.
We wiUl, however, assume the respon-
" s gibiitfWof throwing out a few sugges-
tions, or ideas, relative to the disease
(by which the potato is effected, and
the means to be experimented upon as
(a upppsed preventive, &c., &o. The
.Aleas6 known in Canada and. the
.United States as the potato rot, differs
somewhat from the Bermuda Blight,
inasmuch as ,it seldom effects the
potato uatil it has nearly become
macuird,. and then it seems to strike-
down to the roots at once. The first
symptoms are .those of small whitish
specks on the surface of the potato,
resulting in decay, somewhat rapidly,
if the 'weather is wet and the air close
and warm. While the rot underneath
is going on, the stem and leaves are
gradually withering until at length
they become blanched and withered,
emitting a rancid, noxious odor. Even
aftei the' potatoes have been pitted
[ outside or placed in the cellar, the
S ,-roti -continues, causing them to be
overhauled and the diseased ones sep-
erated from the others-and in many
instances the whole crop is thrown
S out upon the manure heap. Such is
S .-1d#lisease that during the past num-
lber of years has occasionally visited the
S potato fields of those countries referred
to. At present, the Colorado bug is
consideredd as great an enemy to
the plant s the Rot .
Very expedient imagined, has
been resorted to in order to effect a
remedy, but, so far all has been ina-
vailabl. The Bermuda blight ap-

SThere seems to be other causes of i

and soil; but the most radical of all
we are led to suppose, lies in th4
manures which are applied to th<

soil. Condensed and highly heating
nutrition, under the name of paten
manures, force the development of th1
plant unseasonably towards maturity

stances,-and therefore 'it is liabi
to succumb when a stronger influence
is brought to bear upon it. The lacI
of certain elements in the soil has
also a good deal to do in the matter
but this, in connection with the soil
and weather, we purpose referring tc
more fullyin a future issue.
The introduction of a number ol
novel subjects recently by correspond-
ents to the Local Papers is character-
istic of the spirit of the modern age.
It also establishes the fact that Ber-
muda is not without its giants in in-
tellect, whose suggestive genius ap-
pears to be budding forth new de-
velopments, which may eventually
become matured into fruitful realities.
But the latest, most novel, and start-
ling to the ear-perchance the taste
also-is that of the infamous "Rat,"
which a correspondent, this we-ek, has
placed upon the Editorial table of
the NEW ERA for dissection,-and the
ingenious method he has suggested, to
convert the' filthy rodent into savory
meat, and thus render it palatable
and subservient to the wants of man.
The English Sparrow has been' re-
cently condemned as a. criminal fowl,
and now the foul rat is to be event-
ually consigned to the chop sticks
of the Chinee, and the kitchen guil-
lotine of the Parisian Cook of the
period. To the inhabitants of' some
countries the- rat affords an element
of food, and by many, when properly
cooked, is relished as a luxury. To
the Anglo Saxon, however, the rat gen-
erally appears as one of the most
abominable of all creatures, and merits
no sympathy whatever, under any con-
dition, not even when squeaking with-
in the jaws of the terrier. In fact, it
seems to be invariably detested, even
by Bermudians, and the very sight of,
it makes cowards of many.
The Rat was not originally a native
of these Islands; but imported 'itself!
as a sort of stow-a-way in the hulk of
a grain vessel, some 200 years ago.
Soon after its migration (there be-,
ing male and female) it began to mul-'
tiply, and increased so rapidly that in
the course of a few years the country
appeared to be over-run with them.
IThey ravished the planters' -fields,
destroyed poultry and game, and hes-
itated not to sap the life blood from
the young pig as it lay- i its lair.,
In fact children were in danger dur-
ing the night,, as several instances' of
attack had occurred. Like monkeys
they ran up and down the cedar trees
and played their fantastic tricks
among the boughs. This condition of
things necessitated |the government
to take the matter in hand. Prices
were offered-so much a tail, which
had the desired effect of raising the
whole colony in arms-a regular war-
campaign against the rat, and so suc-
cessful werethe results that before
two years, scarcely rat was to be
seen in Bermuda. But of late years
it appears to have taken a fresh start
in life, becoming more numerous
every year. They are indeed a more
destructive enemy to the planter than
the poor little sparrow, as they not
only ravage his growing fields, but
banquet upon that which is stowed
away in kitchens, storehouses and
cellars. Our correspondent wishes to
reverse the order, by profitably utiliz-
ing it as a nutritious element of sub-
sistance, but, wib will begin first? is
the question. Something however,
must be done soon, towards extermin-

eating the rat, otherwise its' numbers
and depredations will increase to such'
an extent as will be seriously felt by
the inhabitants, particularly thd plant-
ers, who during the past few years
have. patiently endured their own
share of the ten p agupes.
To convert the filthy rat' into sav-
ory meat would be a novel feature
in the dietary department of Bermin-ua,
and we doubt much if even the most
hungry appetite oould be induced to
*make any great HEAD-way towards,
the TAIL. But man is a strange'
sort of animal, largely endowed with:
the functions which enable him to'
accommodate himself to almost any
plaee,: food, condition, and circum-
sta'nce-but inherent antipathies, like
matured habits, are hard to overcome,
but the hardest of all to the people of
Bermuda would be in masticating
the delicious carcass- of that animal
whose progenitors were stow-a-ways
within Noah's Ark, and at the time of
the subsiding flood sneaked out of
the old hulk and took up their abode

: In both thi United States and Can-
ada crime appears to. be on the in-
crease. Inalmost every paper we
take up we see chronicled reports of
burglaries, highway robberies, sui-
cides and nmurders. Canada, so long
noted for its comparative absence of
black crimes has of late become noto-
rious for its midnight robberies and
murderous assaults. Its towns and
cities appear to be infested-with organ-
ized gangs of blacklegs and night-
prowlers, -who even find ingress into
houses- inw quest of the "house-
hold gods, "but few there are in these
golden days who when they have
found their treasures gone are ready
to exclaim in the golden language of
the immortal Shakespeare:
"'He who steals my purse steals trash."
Even murder appears to have be-
come a more prevalent 'irime, anid
possessed of a less appalling aspect.
Of late a number of very atrocious
assassinations have been committed ;
events which should strike terror into
every heart and the perpetrators there-'
of should be dealt with according to
the utmost penalty of the law. Vil-
lains of so-black and red a stripe as
Guiteau, should no longer be the re-
eipients of leniency from either civil
or regal authority. To smooth over
the rough surface of murder with the
ointment of the good Samariatan is
of little use to mitigate that horrid
crime, ,and a reprieve too frequently
serves as a sort of certificate of moral
character. incarcerationn in the Re-
formatory seems to have little good
effect either. Horrible offences
should :'be punished with horrible
chastisement. What is wanWed in
such cases is swift inexorable justice,
'and the fullest infliction of deserved
punishmefit. To the man who abuses
his wife, or commits an assault upon an
innocent -givji, apply to his back a
leaden blister of the cat with the nine
tails, while to the brutal wretch who
saps the life blood from- his fellow

gated terrors. Until such is done,
and vigorously carried out, a health-

To MEND CHIN4 -Take a very thick
solution of gum.arabic in water,, and stir
into it plaster of Paris until the mixture
becomes of a proper consistency. Ap-
ply it with a brush to the fractured
edges of the China, and stick them to-
gether. In three days the articles can-
not be broken in the; same place.: The
whiteness of the cement renders it
doubly valuable.
How TO GET RID 1 FPLIEA.-A clergy-
man, writing. from Ireland, says;
-" For three years I have lived in town,
and during- that time Amy sitting room
has been free from flies, three or, four
only walking about, my breakfast table,
while all my; neighbour's rooms were
crowded. I often congratulated anytself
on my escape, but never-knew the rea-
son of it until two days ago,. I then
had occasion to move my, goods. tb an-
other house, while I, remained. on for
two days longer. Among other things
moved were two boxes of geraniums and
calceolarias, which stood in my window,
the latter always being open to its full
extent top. and bottom. The 'boxes
were not gone half an hour before my
room was as full of flies as those around
me. This, to me, is a new discovery,
and perhaps it may serve to encourage
others in that which is always a source
of pleasure, and which now proves 'alis
to be a source of comfort, viz., window
BATHING.-The royal Humane Society
has issued the following excellent in-
structions for the guidance of bathers :
-" Avoid bathing within two hoursafter
a meal, or when exhausted by fatigue
'or from any other cause, or when t
body is cooling after prespiratin ; and
avoid bathing altogether in the open
air if, after having been a short tine, in
the water, there is a sense of chilliness,
with numbness of the hands and feet;
but bathe when the body is warm,-pro-
vided no time is lost in getting into the
water. Avoid chilling the body by sit-
ting or standing undressed on the banks
or in boats after having been in! the
water, or remaining too long: in the
water. 'Leave the water immediately
there is the slightest feeling ot ehilliness.
The vigorous and st wrong may bathe early
in the morning on an empty stomach,
but the young and those who are weak
had better bathe two or three hours
after a meal.; the best time for such is
from two or three hours after breakfast.
Those who are subject to attacks of gid-
diness or faintness, and those who suffer
from palpitation andopther sense of dis-
comfort at the heart, should not bathe
without first consulting their .medical
adviser.,' "
If more care was taken of fearing
tools a great deal of unnecessary expense
might be avoided. It is a wise saying.
" A place for everything, and everything
in its place." We know some good far-
mers who are so indifferent to the care
of tools that a large portion of the profits
they make upon the farm are lost by
the carelessness of keeping tools, or in
other. words their profits they make upon
the farm are lost by the carelessness of
keeping tools, or in other words their
profits might be such larger through ju-
dicious management in this respect.
On many a farm hoes, shovels, forks
