Let it be well understood that Bermuda
is valuable to flur .1 solely as a mili-
tary and naval station, and the civil in-
habitants are m ere, accessories. The
ountry-, otherwise than as a station is of
no value to Britain, and doubtless the
old country would be E: -t lvy satisfied

with the best taste and at really rea-
sonable prices.
Hitherto we have made scant mention
of the towns in the Islands. Of these
in reality there are but two, though at.
various points clusters of houses may be
found forming miniature villages. The
Capital of tne islands, since. 1815,'is,
Hamilton, so named from the Governor
under whose administration it origin-
ated. .This was in 1793. It is situated
about the centre of the islands, and con-
sists of several long i'i. -. lii._- streets
running east and west, with others cross-
uing these at right angles. The 1irinci-
pal structures are the "public build-
ings," the court house, post office, vari-
ous churches, and the I.,:. i,',t. ._. hotel.
This last deserves more than a passing
notice. It belongs to the Corporation
of the town, and was first opened in
1- -'2. It is 'a large four-story ,., ,'lij ,
with over 100 bedrooms; spacious and
comfortable bar, public and private par-
lors, and a magnificent dining hall.
Like many other good.things in Bermu-
da it has been sadly mismanaged, chan-

H.\ IL'T XON, NOVEMBER 21,1883.
Editorial Bureau.

The Court and the Legislature ap-
pear during the past few weeks, to
have been playing hide and go seek
with each other-ten days of law ani
ten days of legislation, alternately.
Oh! thunder and earthquakes! what
an adjustment of public matters. Ten
days, if economically used, could set-
tle up all the cases on the doquette
every six months, and two months in
the year would do all the legislation
that Bermuda requires; but this
would not suffice lawyers and legisla-
tors who are paid by the hour, and
not by the job. The machines for the
working out of these public matters
are of the, old-f,;vi'i 1 type, and
have run too long with the same hum-
drum motion to come up to the re-
quirements of the 19th century. Tru-
ly in-DEED, Bermuda is an exception
to the civilized ivorld. In any other
country all the law cases, crimin-
al and civil, could have been disposed
of in half the time ; but lawyers are
fond of asking silly questions to show
their smartness, and the Judges keep
tally to the game. When will there
be a healthy state of law and legisla-
tion ? That's the question.

For the -Yew Era.
THE NEW ERA of the 14th instant, pub-
lished an article which we contributed to
its columns in regard to Bermuda as a.
farming country. In that communica-
tion it was our purpose to show
how that interest. could best be advanc-
ed by government aid. Those who
read the article will recollect our at-
tempt to show that the only and the
best aid which the government could
extend to the farmers was in opening
up the best markets for the sale of the
products of their labor. To accomplish
this we advocated such expenditures as
might be deemed necessary to afford a
safe landing to the largest ships on the
coast of the main land. We also ad-
vocated the scheme of building a nar-
row gauge inexpensive Rail Road from
the Ship ;lauding wherever it night be
to the tonwn of Hamilton. The object
of the present communication is to re-
deem the promise which we then made
to show the effect which such changes
and improvements would have upon
"The T', n of Hamilton." Writing,
under a xNOM PLUMAS no one is presum-
ed to know our identity ; and we are
left to give free expression to our views
not only in regard to Hamilton but in
regard to any part or portion of the Is-
land. The town of Hamilton is the
seat of government for all the Islands
and will remain so for all time to come. It
is as permanent as if built upon a ROCK.
It occupies a position very near the geo-
graphical centre of the combined group
of all the Islands. There is perhaps no
other locality as easy of access to so
large a number of our people as the
town of Hamilton. Vast sums of money
have been expended in building up the
town and both private and public ex-
pefditure have contributed to render it
the centre of trade for the whole Island.
Any thing therefore the effect of which
would be to diminish its prosperity
should be at once discarded. Even the
chronic fault finder who always imagin-
es that the merchants of Hamilton pay
him too little for his produce and charge
him too much for his goods would be
pained to see a single door closed in
this town for the want of a tenant.. The
principle of equity as it runs in the
brain of some men is that a majority
must always rule, and that the minority
has no rights pecuniary or otherwise
which a majority are under any obliga-
tions to recognize. Such are not our
views. The rights and privileges of a
minority are as dear and sacred as
those of a majority. When therefore
the government made Hamilton the
permanent capital of these Islands; and
upon the faith of that act individuals
have invested the savings of a lifetime in
real estate within its corporate limits, it
would be treachery for the government
to adopt a policy to destroy the value
of investments so made, even though a

majority of the people of the whole Is-
land should be benefitted by such a po-
licy. Capital is always shy and the
man of money is slow to give in his ad-
hesion to even the most simple changes.
in government affairs. Hence the con-
servatism of the rich is at last the best
safeguard to a country's welfare: 1. i n
as they become rich lay aside one by
'one the strifes of life, and grow more
and more thoughtful.. The man of capi-
tal therefore will be slow to adopt a po-
licy so radical as the one which we ad-
vocated. We do not despair however
of convincing even that class of men that
the scheme proposed will not only ad-
vance. the welfare of the farming interest
o~ the Island, but that it will also ad-
Ni ate the prosperity of the town of
Har l4ton. As things now stand there
is no 0vance in the prosperity of either
the one or the other. Another century
will pass away and find both these in-
terests whtre they are to-day if no chan-

ges are made. It is impossible to make
a calculation that will foreshadow a bet-
ter future for the people than the condi-
tion in which they now find themselves
without a change. Conservatism as we
have just remarked is not only a safe-
guard to the people's liberties, but it is
a safeguard likewise to the stability of
their property rights. There is a con-
servatism however that is so stable that
all.advancement withers before it. There
is but little fear that Bermuda will even
lack in this particular. The members
of the House ot Assembly as well as
those of the Queens Council are in the
main the very embodiment of conserva-
tism. The struggle for supremacy
among them to hold things as they are
is a leading feature in their parliamentary
proceedings. And if the ship of state
should ever sink front unexpected .storms,
she will go down loaded with anchors.
[Conclusion next week.]
To th0 e Editor of the New Era.
SIR,-In my first article on the Exhum-
ed E ,." I implied a doubt as to the truth
of the account of a general Deluge. On this
account "*Fact" accused me of attacking the
Bible, and has endeavored to impress upon
the minds of your readers that the Bible-
that is the whole of it-is the inspired word
of God, and as such must be believed ; and
on this assumption, claimed, that to doubt
the truth of the Mosaic account of a Deluge
was to doubt the Divinity of Christ, and the
\,'.t1 of the.Apostles. Now no command to
believe the whole Bible would be of any
weight, unless it were contained, in the last
words of the last Book of that Bible, and
furthermore, that at the giving and writing
of that command, the various books of the
Bible were firmly and indissolubly bound
together, and we had the original copy to
refer to. On the contrary, the Bible exist-
ed for centuries in separate ,,-,ki or scrolls
-for they were written on scrolls and in
modern times translated into modern Ian,
guages, printed and bound in one volume-
and it has lately been found necessary to
translate the whole. Of course the adapta-
tion of its various parts the one to the other
may be addluced as proof of its Divine ori-
gin ; but in historical data it should not be
claimed to be infallible. I have proved that
physically, the Bible account of a Deluge,
etc. as recorded in the VII chapter of Gene-
sis, is untrue, because impossible. Fact"
says, not so; we must not take the word
Earth according to its literal sense, but
must circumscribe its meaning, and he gives-
some quotations, to show that it is used to
mean a portion only of the earth. These
quotations however, refer to events which
happened long after those now in discus-
sion. If .' Fact" will look back to the ac-
count of the Creation, and of the Delnge as
recorded in the Book of Genesis, from the
first to the seventh chapter, lie will see that
it will be impossible to limit the meaning of
the word earth to the narrow sense which he
gives to it. The following quotations will
illustrate my meaning :
Gem 1.1. God created the heavens and
the Earth. 3. The Eirth was without form
and void. 10. And God called the dry land
Earth. 11. And God said let the Earth, etc.
12. And the Earth, etc. Gen. 2. 4. Thus
the heavens and the Earth were finished,
and all the host of them. 4. These are the
generations of the heavens and the Earth.
Gen. VII. 1. When man began to multiply
upon the face of the Earth. 6. Arid it re-
pented God that he had made-man upon the
Earth. 7. Aid the Lord said I will destroy
man whom I li:re e.'.-:t. 1 from the face of
the Earth. i'tlh marn and beast, and the
creeping Itiing. 17. And behold I. 'even I,
do bring a flood of watvr upon the Eirtph, to
destroy all flesh': wherein is the breath of
life, from under heaven, and every thing
that is on the Eairth shall (lie
There can be no queotirn tn any reasoning
mind who will look a tl,.. latter squarely,
unbiased by the probability of theological
issues, that in the verses just quoted, the
word Earth is intended to be used in its
widest and fullest sense, and as the verses
quoted in a former article, are but the con-
tinuation of the Mosaic narrative, and I fail
to see how, the word Earth can be twisted to
mean in these latter verses, a portion and
not the whole of the planet on which man
struts and fumes his little life.
Thie account of the deluge is plain, it is
the exaggerated account of some local de-
luge which probably destroyed the people
living in the locality visited by the flood, a
few of whom were saved in some floating
structure, in which during the prevalence of
the waters, was also pre erved sufficient of
animal life to restock the laud when the
floods subsided. In all this, the protecting
care of the Almighty was manifested for his
faithful servants, who would naturally re-
count tlie tale of this the greatest event in
their lives, to their children, and so on ,by
tradition was the story handed down, until
the writer of the Book o(f Genesis, placed it
on record for the ages which should follow.
lie evidently believed that the whole Earth
was covered, and so he has written.
"Fact" has endeavored to escape by the
way of retreat which he provided at
ginning of his :,r.g,,,i lt. and in conclusion
of this debate, and would say to him, that
iu any controversy or the historical data of
the Bible, in which he may be engaged, if it

is allowed to him for miracles to explain ono
part, and expansion or contraction of the
meaning of certain words or phrases to ex-
plain thie oilither part, lie need never fear de-
feat. D.
To the 12,'.' of the New Era.
Sum,-May I be permitted to offer a
few remarks upon the tirade of words
under Lthe above heading, which has
been perplexing this section of the col-
ony during the last two or three weeks.
I have endeavored to follow the argu-
ments advanced by Fact," but A FOTIORI
they baffle my comprehension. How-
ever EX UNO DISCE OMNES ; this amounts
to nothing. In the first place "D" and
" Fact" appear to agree in respect to
the universality of the Deluge ; the
former believing that the Bible records
a universal Deluge but declining to ac-
cept it ; the latter affirming and declar-
ing that the Bible "teaches no such
thing," and believing accordingly. Now
this is truly a remarkable coincidence of
opinions from totally different ihterpre-
tations. The Chaldean cuneiforms in
the British Museum are nothing to this.

We think that not only was the Deluge
universal, but we believe and are sure
that the Bible confirms this supposition,
as plain as words can express it. J For
other construction can Fact" or any
body else put upon Genesis VII. 4.
" For yet seven days and I will cause it
to rain upon the earth forty days and
If any living substance was to be de-
stroyed from off the face of the earth
within a pre.,,', il.ed limit, (as "Fact"
will have it), then everything outside
that limit woul', remain intact. This
would I-nid-lr tlhe i- instruction of an Ark
entirely inIII(:ce-.-aary, because God could
have directed Noah and his wife and
his son's wives with him to escape the
local il.l-tru'i.tii'n. as he did Lot from
that of Sodom and Gomorrah. But not
only was No>;li and all his family savdd
from destruction, but so also was a dele-
gate of every living thing ; two and two,
of every kind." Is it at all likely that
to escape a local flood such a fabric as
the Ark would have been constructed
and such an immense floating mena-
gerie fabricated ? when by simply trans-
migrating beyond its utmost bounds
Noah and all his family would have been
safe. But by what was the flood of
water s bounded and hemmed in ? "The
tops of the mountains were covered!"
This would give the water an enormous
mean level w1ii-cjcould only he met and
obstructed by a corresponding level.
And wla. was the obstruction? What
was the dyke or dykes which formed
the barrier and prevented alike the
spread of the waters and the escape of
its victims. I must not trespass upon
your valuable space, Mr. Editor, or I
would go further into this subject, for it
apple 'ars to me that the arguments advanc-
ed by "Fact" are the most superficial
ever promulgated upon ,the same sub-
The fatuity of childhood may com-
prehend and can comprehend ailuniver-
sal deluge ; but what an infinite com-
prehension is necessary to grasp the
theory of a local flood which produced
such overwhelming results.
And f further believe that such con-
structions as "Fact' puts upon this and
other quotations are pernicious in their
own effects upon people who cannot
form opinions of their own upon such
subjects; for what is to' hinder them
from interpreting almost any verse of
Holy Writ according to this scale-
blessings, cofimanc-.ents, and curses
alike. In collusion I should like to
see Fact" advance more convincing
arguments in support of his theory, be-
cause a local Deluge backed by super-
ficial, phra-,:.,logical, ostentive, pristine
philosophy, is a physical and metaphy-
sical impossibility.

For the New Era.
nfi "f1'TOR-I asked a Chum of mine
whom I met with one evening lately
" where he was going," to which he re-
plied, "when you ask me gramma-
tically I will tell you." I said I had
asked him correctly; and he said I
hadn't; and as both of us had a little
'bit of self-conceit of our school educa-
tion, each maintained lie was right. He
then asked me if I would be at home to-
morrow. "Let's see," said I, in a sort
of calculating manner, to-day is Thurs-
day, to-morrow is Friday"-but before
I had time to answer his question he
abruptly exclaimed-" Another speci-
men of your bad grammar" why did you
not say-" To-morrow will be Friday,
instead of is Friday. The verb is signi-
fies present tetso, to-morrow is in the
future, tlieft'.r' it should have a verb
"implying futurity ; consequently the cor-
rect way is "to-morrow will be Friday,"
instead of is Fliday. Under the power
of such stiff logic I felt somewhat em-
barrassed, but regaiuijig my proper
senses I ,"'l.],tred up an argument ag-
ainst his ; and after a short time with-
out coming to a mutual decision we a-
greed to submit the two questions to
the NEW ERA for a solution or something
else that would satisfy us both.
Ireland Island, Nov. 16, 1883.
NOTE.-With reference to the 1st
Query, the sentence. "Where are you
going," is not complete. The word
WHERE signifies a place, and therefore
the person is not asked in what place
but to what place lhe is going, conse-
quently the preposition "to" is required
to denote relation, and action, thusly

"where are you going TO," or "to
where (or what place) are you going"
or in other words-" whither are you
going." In Query No 2, however, we
believe you are correct in saying-" To-
morrow is Friday instead of To-mor-
row WILL BE Friday. True, to-morrow is
in the future hence it would be appar-
ently reasonable to suppose that a verb
implying' futurity, such as, "WILL BE,"
should be used instead of is of the pre-
sent tense. But on a little closer con-
sideration the fallacy is easily detected.
A future tense verb is only applicable to
a nominative, or thing which is in 'actu-
al existence at the time referred to, or
when two nouns in the sentence are not
identical-as for examples-" The Ori-
noco WILL leave on Thursday." The
liotIls WILL BE crowded with guests this
winter. Orinoco and Thursday and
Hotels and Guests are different things,
neither of any two being identical. But
in 'the phraze '' To-morrow is Friday"
the two nouns signify the same in self
and substance and are wholly solely and
only ONE. To-morrow does not i'equire
any time, beyond its own limit to deve-
lop itself into Friday-hence there is

no necessity of a ve
tense as it would a
Friday has a subs*(
that of to-morrow and
destroy their identity,
be the case with the verb is,
used in the sentence to denote tense b
relation and condition ; for, the very
word "to-morrow" implies futurity in-
dependent of any future tense verb.
Further-The verb is does not in gene-
ral indicate present time only-as for
instance we say-Mr. Jones is a man ;
this does not confine his manhood to one
day only ; his condition is a fixed fact;
not so with his son in his teens, for we
cannot say Billy Jones is a man, but
WILL BE a man if he lives a few years
more. Take for examples the following
",God is in Heaven"-this comprises all
'the tenses. "The sky-color is azure"-
" The Devil is wicked," Ocean water
is salt" etc. These and similar senten-
ces represent a quality or condition, and
although expressed by the present tense
verb is, are not necessarily limited
to present time. To use a future
tense verb to any of these sentences
would make the same ridiculous-
ly absurd, as for instance Ocean
water WILL BE salt in time" &c. There
is therefore as much good reason
for using the verb is in the sentence-
To-morrow is Friday as in any of those
above, at least, such is our view of the
matter. But we would be happy to
hear the opinions of some 9f our gram-
matically educated readers, witli respect
to this or any Queryism that may find
its way into the columns of the N Vw ERA.

United States. The following is a
synopsis of the reports :
At Erie a terrible gale raged for

two days. The schooner Mary was

Schooner Nell Perry, with 1600
bushels of wheat, went ashore; cargo
badly damaged.
In the storm a schooner with coal
was wrecked on the -rocks near Oi-

In Toronto great damage was done
to shipping and wharves, etc.; part
of island owned by the celebrated
oarsman Hanlan, was washed away;
.vessels on the lake have been wrecked.
Despatches from various points in
Oitario indicate that the storm was
very severe. At Hastings the spire
of the. Riman Catholic church was
blown down and the church otherwise
damaged; saw-mills were unroofed

own down. At Bellville
lock was unroofed and

ie gale was accompanied by light-
ning, thunder and a fearful downpour
of hail.
When the gale struck the Metropo-
litan Hall, in which a Salvation Army
meeting was being held, a rattling of
scenery, caused by the wind, created
a panic. Three women fainted, and a
rush was made for the stairs, down
which a great many people tumbled
in their haste. Fortunately no one
was severely hurt.

In Boston, Mass., on Wednesday, Oct.
24th, 1883, MlR. JAMES TATEM STEELE, aged
57 years, leaving a large circle of relatives
and friends to mourn their loss.
NOTE. -The deceased was originally a na-
tive-resident of Bermuda, and a cousin of
Capt. Joseph Steele of Devonshire. With
reference to him the Boston TEMPLE CENSER,
publishes the following verses :
Dearest brother, thou has left ns ;
We shall see thy face no more.
Till around the throne we gather,
On the bright celestial shore.
Dearest brother, thou hast left us ;
We thy loss most deeply feel,
But the hand that has bereaved us
Can our deepest soi rows heal.
D rest brother, thou hast left ns ;
I'nt we should not weep for thee,
For we feel that thou art dwelling,
Robed in spotless purity,
With the bright and holy angels ;
With the spirits of the blest,
Where '"the wicked cease from troubling
And the weary are at rest."
Dwv'liug in thine own fair mansion,
\V hichl the Saviour did prepare :
Only those made pure and holy
I'er can find a dwelling there.
Standing on the sea of jasper,
Walking though the p. .1.1. streets,,
Bowing low. before the Saviour;
sitting iir'" heavenly seats,
Drinking -vyrstal river,
Eating lree of life.
'hou shrl'll with Christ forever,
Blessed, swee.tternal life.
Yet again we hope to meet thoe,
When in Jordan's stream we stand ;
When we'i crossed its deep, cold waters,
There to clasp thy loving hand,-
Walk with thee ;n sweet communion,
(lad in robes f spotless white
Upward to the holy city,
Blessed land of pure delight.

A recent governor of these islands,
with a taste for antiquities, has res-
cued from oblivion their past history.
With wonderful diligence and paii-
ence he. hunted out from all sorts of
odd corners the records which the
tooth of time had spared, and pieced
them together so as to form a by no
means contemptible monument to 1 h
compiler. To the works of Sir John
H. Lefroy, and to those of William?
and Godet we must refer the reader
for the curious and, not uneventful
history of the past three centuries.
Copies may be consulted at the pub-
lic library in Hamilton. To' the his-
of the present we have endeavored
contribute our share and, incident
ly,' have even encroached on the p
-inee of the prophet and said so
thing of the probatlo future. Inc
it requires but little of the gift o
licination to foresee what matis
the future of a country situated
this. In reality it can have no futii
in the sense in which future as a tim
of promise lit up by hopes is usually
'.- .ted. T'. one bright possibiii
lies in itf becoming more and moro
of a healthy resort. Besides the in-
er asked money circulation which
streams of tourists must create, there
is another way in which thi current
of travel may prove b"',neicial to th'-
colntry. Increased ,. w'th
