Every day, whilst in Hamilton, with the exception of
Sunday, some of her men were on shore on liberty, and
their good conduct has been remarked on by every one.

A BALL.-A Subscription Ball, given by the
gentlemen of Hamilton and Paget Parish, took
place at the Masonic Hall, in this Town, on
Thursday evening last. The company began to
assemble, from all parts of the Colony, at about 9
o'clock, and dancing commenced soon after the ar-
rival of His Excellency the Governor, Mrs. Lefroy
and family. The Hall was soon filled with a bril-
liant assemblage, in which the army and the navy
with their gay uniforms formed a conspicuous part.
The ball room was neatly decorated with flowers
and evergreens; at the head the Flags of England
and the United States were gracefully blended.
The spacious Verandah, which was comfortably en-
closed, formed a most agreeable promenade, and a
resort for the wearied of dancing, seats being ar-
ranged on either side. Dancing was continued with
much spirit till suppertime, and afterwards resum-
ed and kept up till near the third hour of the
morning. The supper, which included all the
good things of the season, was elegantly arranged,
doing great credit to the taste and good judgment
of the manager; the wines were excellent. Too
much praise could not be awarded the Stewards
for that excellent arrangement which was conspic-
uous throughout the evening, and which called forth
the approbation of the guests as they retired ex-
pressing gratitude to the managers for their untir-
ing exertions to give them one of the most enjoy-
able evening's entertainments, in which they suc-
ceeded most perfectly. A string band from the
46th Regiment, kindly loaned for the occasion, de-

lighed the company with sweet music, which was
greatly admired for its precision and beauty, evi-
dencing that their instructor is a musician of no
mean order.

The Bazaar held by the Ladies of Zion Methodist
Church, at the Mechanics' Hall, in this town on Wed-
nesday evening last and the two following days, was
not we regret to say, so well attended as was hoped for.
The scarcity of money was evident on this as on simi-
lar occasions of late. There was a goodly display of
wares of various kinds.

The Race advertised to take place on Wednes.
day last came off at the appointed time. Four
boats started from the stake-boat, opposite R. B.
Y. Club House, Hamilton harbour, viz.: Julia, 8
minutes in advance of Victoria, the latter in ad-
vance of Zeyhyr 6 minutes, which boat was in ad-
vance of Iris 6 minutes. The start was well exe-
cuted in a stiff, single reef breeze-wind from S.
W.-They kept their positions well till round the
extreme point of onward race, the Ducking Stool
Buoy, when the wind changed and subsequently
fell, eventually leaving the boats in a calm-up to
which period the race was well contested and ex-
cited a good deal of interest with yacht-racing
lovers. In consequence of the light wind the
boats did not observe course in returning. The
Zephyr came in first, beating Iris 1 minute 12
We are requested by the Stewards to thank
those gentlemen who so kindly and liberally sub-
scribed to the funds to help to defray the expenses
of this race.
THEATRICALS.-It will be observed elsewhere that
the Rouse Family, father, mother and son, with the
assistance of other celebrities, intend having two per-
formances at the Masonic Hall, in this town,on to-mor-
row and Thursday evenings. Those who have wit-
nessed the performances of the Rouse family, espe-
ally Master Rouse, need no recommendation from us
respecting their excellent delineations of character.


The year just ended hasbeen one of uncommon im-
portance, and there are few years that to the review-
er present greater and graver difficulties by reason
of the large masses of material at hand which must
be sifted. Commercially and politically the year
just ended has been of great moment, and what the
decisions and indecisions carried forward to the new
year may result in, it would be most difficult to
prognosticate. 1876 has seen a stagnation in trade
almost unexampled, the depression being continued
and aggravated from the previous year. Money
lost its buoyancy, the wants of industry and the de-
mands of speculation were limited in the face of the
large accumulated loans at disposal. And a fresh
illustration was publicly given that money being
the common denominator of trade must be controll-
ed not by a legislation that would fix its tolls at an
unalterable rate but by the innate activities of
trade. There has been an overproduction beyond
the absorbing capacities of profitable markets. And
the manufacturing and carrying trades have espe-
cially suffered. And so bound up now-a-days is one
industry with another that all must participate in
any curtailment of large staple industries. There
are several peculiarities attending this depression of
trade-a superfluity of capital begging employment
at a minimum cost, and plenty of bread contrasting
with bygone crises with dearth of both money and
bread. This exhibits the careful husbanding of
profitable earnings in years just past of industrial
activity and abundant harvests that leave no lack.
The depression has not been restricted to one or two
countries. It has been universal, extending alike to
all nationalities and all classes. The large sums
advanced by the British Public in Foreign Loans
and a large proportion of which have been used in
stimulating trade have proved during the last year
almost, all of them unproductive investments, the
principal of the great majority being endangered.
Accumulations sought profitable channels of invest-
ment,i money was plentiful, the borrowers were
plausible, and the lenders were only too eager to
believe they had got a profitable outlet for supera-
bundant capital. Those whose incomes were small
from small investments sought to increase their
store by a seemingly more profitable return. And
on this class and they not a few, the collapse of
Foreign loans has told severely. Those who were
Kings in iron and coal which of late years in Brit-
ain have had an astonishing development, the work-
men also participating by earning increased wages,
have suddenly been checked in their career of pros-
perity and their properties have become scarcely
self-sustaining or have been abandoned with or
without a bankruptcy. And perhaps the full ef-
fects of these have not yet been experienced in the
fashionable world and in the ordinary walks of so-
cial life. The London Season of 1876 was less
brilliant than those which preceded it, some pro-
nounced it even a total failure. Idle coachmen,
unfilled apartments. And 1877 Season will from
necessity if not from prudence prove as the expres-
sion goes tamer still. Industries and investments
unproductive and money on hand in no demand.
The results in the long run may be beneficial in in-
ducing a well timed economy-that even in pros-
perity a portion of income should be conserved
against a wet day. Another source of loss to a
large section of the British Empire to the Angle
Indian has been the severe depreciation of silver, al-
most curtailing an Officer's income now quite small
enough twenty-five per cent. The origin of the
evil was easily discernable in throwing on the
market too much silver, more than it was capable of
absorbing, the metals of monetic value being them-
selves also subject to the laws regulating merchan-
dize. Germany denomitizing silver was the first
impetus, then the reputed productions of the Ame-
rican silver mines, the first reports of whose fertile
outputs have hardly been sustained by subsequent
enquiries, and then perhaps errors in the financial
managements of Indian Bills and specie reserves.
A slight improvement occurred in the latter por-
tion of the year, caused by the export of silver to
China to purchase silks in anticipation of othei
markets, showing a deficiency of customary supply.
the hoarding up in the American Treasury for the
projected withdrawal of the paper currency from
. circulation, and the rumors that Germany intended
returning to a compound standard requiring so
much silver coin for the ordinary circulation oi
petit transactions. In 1876 was also completed the
visit of the Prince of Wales to India auspiciously
began in the last quarter of 1875. That progress
was watched with interest by all classes of the
British People and a popular knowledge was dis-
seminated of India on the one hand, and of the re-
lations subsisting between it and England on the
other; the presence of the Heir Presumptive having
also among the native Princes no inconsiderable
weight, while to the Prince himself was revealed
something of the general character of the Indian
Dependency of the Crown. As a fitting sequel tc
that visit Her Majesty will be proclaimed Em.-
press of India" during the month of January with
befitting ceremony. Jealous of infringement or
ancient customs and titles, and with no desire t<
unnecessarily expand the powers of the Crown, th(
IHouse of Commons discussed the proposal of th(
additional Title with some misgiving as to its strict
propriety and necessity and evidently sanctioned
much more restricted use of the title Empress thai
was originally intended. If the purposes projected
shall in any way be served, not even the mosi
scrupulous constitutionalist will have cause for re-
gret. Another event of general importance hat
been the return of Captain Nare's Arctic Expeditioi
with a chronicle of facts which go to show that i
is now almost fool hardly in the face of hard expe.

rience to undertake any more such voyages at leas
for the immediate present, where no object of spec.
ial utility can be gained, where neither science no:
commerce can reap any substantial advantages and
where the mere love of adventure can discover little
for pleasing indulgence. Another event of genera
importance to the British people has been the re
tirement of Disraeli from the House of Commons
and his acceptance of a Peerage as Earl Beacons.
field. As the Premier informed his old constituents
his health had rendered his retirement from the ac
tive arena of the Commons necessary, and at the
end of the last session it was his intention to hav(
retired into private life and to have died a simple
commoner. But in the Queen's solicitation he was
induced to retire to the Upper House and to retain
his post as Premier on the solicitation of his col.
leagues. And the country may be congratulated
on having his matured judgment, ample knowledge
and real patriotism at this critical juncture when
experience and firmness are so absolutely necessary
The Philadelphia Exhibition which we shall briefly
notice in course is another distinguishing charac-
teristic of 1876, marking the Centennial of United
States independence, and the growth and progress
which these States have made in civilization espec-
ially during the last half century. We may cer-
tainly be proud, as Lord Dufferin truly remarked,
of belonging to a race which has exhibted such as-
tonishing expansion.
But the special event of 1876 has been the so-
called Servian War not by reason of its own merits
but owing to the collateral issues in which every
European State has some stake. The discontent in
a county of Turkey strengthening into an armed
resistance to official authority presents nothing in
itself uncommon nor would it ordinarily have
aroused more than a passing interest and Turkey
would have been left to deal quietly with her re-
bellious subjects. The o r-_,. ,Yf -. )f Servia is af-
ter all a 1.... and a not, rj. 9't, ti t. :. as a
whole, with a considerable population to look for
support to a limited stock of resources. But two
Provinces in the West of Servia had been for full

twelve months at open rupture with the central
-Turkish Power which showed an incapacity for
subduing and pacifying the belligerents in Bosnia
and Herzegovina. The secret of this mismanage-
ment of a domestic trouble was owing to the late
Sultan Abdul Aziz positive insanity, his perpetual
sudden whims endangering the stability of the
whole Empire, leading to disaffection among the
official classes and tending to the fostering of dis-
content in Provinces where there could exist no re-
sonable grounds for it. In Bosnia and Herzegovi-
na there were special difficulties for the varied po-
pulations and creeds and the difficulties of regula-
ting their various status by reason of their deep
rooted prejudices. The deferring of the day of set-
tlement with these two Provinces emboldened an
adventurous and unscrupulous party to excite Ser-
via, believing that the same dalliance and the same
weakness would be exhibited by the Turkish Exec-
utive and that in the meanwhile other Provinces
could also be aroused to join the trio now in open
defiance, and that the wedge would be so far driven
into Turkish Power as almost presently to weaken
it and ultimately expell it from Europe. The plan
had long been laid, the schemes had been silently
and somewhat skilfully manipulated, and all ap-

parently required was the first fitting opportunity
for Panslavism to make a bold and a seemingly per-
manent advance. Of herself Servia was weak and
incapable of any prolonged contest. But secret
agencies were industriously at work seeking a quar-
rel with Turkish authority through Servia and
Prince Milan became the mouth piece not of his own
principality only but also of the sympathizers who
poured into Servia and of those who staying at
Shomo sent substantial aid for the cause. The Ser-
vian Commander was q= Russian General of some
ability who had been liMing obscurely in St. Peters-
burg, after his exhibition in Central Asia of an
overzeal which the Russian Government did not, as
they sometimes do forbidden conduct when success-
ful, regard with favour. General Tchernayef ought
now to be familiar for he has been most widely ad-
vertized in the War Bulletins and in the progress
of the Servian contest Russian Volunteers and
Russian Officers have poured into Servia not per-
haps to the extent at first surmized but more nu-
merous than the ordinary run of such cases usually
call out of daring adventures. Almost from the
outbreak of hostilities the war assumed a Rus.
sian character. Official Russia did not appear but
kept a plausible conduct at first to repress and con-
ciliate in conjunction with the other guaranteeing
Powers. Had Turkey been left to deal only with
Servia the results would have been by no means un-
certain and promptness might have marked the
quelling of insurrection. But Turkey was suffer-
ing from three disadvantages which retarded a
speedy attempt at suppression of the insurrection.
The Servian troubles had been ripened by Russian
interference and Russia was at the back of Servia,
if not as a great European Power at least by a di-
rect popular assistance. The magnitude of the
Russian support has doubtless been exaggerated
and too high an estimate was taken by the Turk-
Sish commanders of their antagonist's real strength.
And the Turkish troops, though excellent fighting
material, were neither equipped nor officered to
strike a series of blows and rapidly follow them up
I to a decisive point. 2nd. The state of anarchy at
Constantinople, a mad Sultan, a successor but little
removed above sanity, and a murderous onslaught
* on Cabinet Ministers, all these circumstances were
I highly unfavorable to a sound healthy policy di-
recting the Army in the field. 3rd. By the Treaty
of Paris which had been subsequently revised in
f London, the relations subsisting between Turkey
and several of her Provinces were subject to the in-
section of the Great Powers; the object being to
t protect the Christian elementss of the Turkish em-
*- pire in a manner that would command the sympa-
thies of Christian States without exciting any jea-
lousies. Turkey, so to speak, was a sort of Chan-
cery Ward, the guardians being unable to agree
. among themselves. Thus there existed many
drawbacks in the way of a prompt action deciding
the difficulties of the day which hourly grew worse.
r In the capital of the empire no central authority of
, any power, the head of the State an incapable and
a shifting panorama not more satisfactory as it
i proceeded, plotting and contending with a fanati-
I cism which might at any time expand into large
) dimensions, the contests of rival diplomatists con-
f dealing real designs behind plausible utterances
and actions, all these things added to a not well
accoutred force in the field gave Servia, Russian
3 Servia, many advantages to consolidate and ad-
vance their lines of offence and defence.
* Again the physical features of the country do not
. admit of rapid movements-and so while the Ser-
vians could take up strong positions it required
time and energy for the Turks to march forward
and encounter them. Those considerations in a
Measure explain tardiness which to military tacti-
cians seem almost inexplicable in these days of des-
perate and prompt conflicts, for months now count
Sas years did formerly in warfare.

EoM DEMEEARA.-We have been favored, by
Captain Young of the Schooner "Racer," with
t files of Demerara papers of the 13th ultimo.
We notice two deaths in Georgetown, viz :-
At the residence of Dr. Pollard, Colonial Hospi-
Stal, Georgetown, on Sunday, Deer. 10th, HENRY
38. [Dr. S. was a native of Canada and has been
- in Demerara since 1860.]

" til December 1862 when he was appointed to the
I office which he held at the time of his death.]
A weekly communication by steam has been
l opened between Georgetown, Demerara, and the
Island of Barbados. The vessel employed in this
service is.called the Mayflower, a screw steamer, said
to be of convenient size for the service. She left
- Demerara on her first trip on 11th December. She

The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw,

tapers from other friends, we obtain six days later
accounts both from Europe and the United States.
A terrible catastrophe occurred at the Convent of
Ste. Elizabeth, County Joliet, 45 miles N.E of
Montreal, on the night of 25th December. The
whole building was destroyed by fire and 13 of the
inmates perished in the conflagration. All the
community were in bed, and the Nuns as well as
the children that escaped saved nothing but their
night clothes-there were 95 persons in the Convent
sides the Sisters in charge.
LONDON, Dec. 26.-It is estimated that 250 men
and 120 vessels were lost, in the recent storm on the
English and Scottish coasts.
The "Daily Telegraph's special correspondent
at Pera says: Midhat Pasha, at an unofficial in-
terview with Lord Salisbury, refused to accept the
proposition for an international commission to
superintend reforms. Lord Salisbury, I am told,
telegraphed for a steamer to he in readiness to con-
vey him to Athens, if the Porte should continue
unyielding. Great quantities of arms and ammu-
nition are being received from America. The tem-
per of the population is warlike, and the situation
is'critical. On Saturday the Softas made a demon-
stration before the Russian embassy, shouting' down
with Russia.'" Russian steamers have ceased run-
ning on the Black Sea.
The Steamship "Brittannic" run from New York
to Queenstown in seven days and thirteen hours,
the quickest time on record.
It is estimated that fully one hundred and fifty
lives were lost in the recent gale on the east coast
of Scotland and England. The Times' despatch
from Shields says the shores of the Tyne are strewn
for three or four miles with wrecks. Similar ac-
counts come from all points along the east coast.
DELHI, Dec. 22.-Preparations on a magnificent
scale are making for the proclamation of Queen
Victoria as Empress of India here on the 1st of
January. Native princes and chiefs are arriving
daily. A review of the troops took place to-day
before the Commander-in-chief of the Indian forces.
The new Turkish constitution declares the Sul-
tan to be the Caliph of Mussulmans and Sovereign
of Ottomans. Freedom of all creeds is guaranteed;
liberty of the press and freedom of education are
granted ; primary education is made compulsory,
and all subjects are eligible to hold public office,
and the rights of property and domicile are declar-
ed inviolable. A Senate and Chamber of Deputies
to be established, which will receive messages from
the Sultan and have the privilege of voting. The
imperative mandate is prohibited. The initiative
in framing laws belongs to the responsible ministry
and the deputies.
BERLIN, Dec. 22.-The Emperor William closed
the session of the German Parliament to-day, with
a speech from the throne. His Majesty said in re-
i ference to foreign affairs:
The negotiations of the powers upon the Eastern
question, as far as proceeded with, justify the hope
that my efforts, and the mutually conciliatory and
peaceful intention of the powers immediately con-
cerned, will be successful in solving the pending
questions without prejudice to the good relations,
now existing. Germany will continue, by friendly
disinterested mediation, to lend her co-operation
for attainment of this end,
The Greek Chamber of Deputies have unanimous.
ly passed a bill raising the strength of the military
forces to 200,000 men.
In view of the Brooklyn fire the Lord Chamber-
lain has issued a memorandum to prosecute theatri-
cal managers who violate the rules concerning
facilities of exit for their audiences. The maxi-
mum penalty under the Act is twenty-five hundred
NEW YORK, Dec. 26.-The President to-day sent
to the Senate the correspondence between the Un-
ited States and Great Britain on the subject of ex-
tradition. The conclusion shows that the treaty
has been restored to vitality, by the act of Great
Britain, in receding from her former position, and
the United States Government is now prepared to
consider the question of amendment.
NEW YORK; Dec 25.-President Grant, in reply
to a press interviewer, said he was not afraid of an
armed collision in connection with the Presidency,
no matter what the fears of others. It seemed to
him the people desired only a fair count in the
Southern contested States, in order to be satisfied
of the result.
A broken rail near Bellefontaine, Ohio, threw a
passenger train from the track yesterday, wounding
thirty persons, some fatally.
Oil tanks burst at Oil City, Pa., yesterday ; S200,-
000 worth of property was destroyed.
The Directors of the Western Union Telegraph
have authorized President Orton to make all proper
legal resistance to the demand of Congress or its
Committee for confidential telegrams.
The address of the Irish people, which President
Grant, some months ago, declined to receive, except
through the English Legation, was considered in

- Committee on Foreign affairs and its acceptance
recommended. J. O'Connor Power, M.P., bearer
of the address, explained the object of the Irish
people in sending their congratulations to the
American people.
The House has passed a resolution arrogating to
itself supreme power over telegraph messages. It
is believed President Orton will contest the right.
CUBA.-A Havana letter says the Spanish army
15,000 strong was recently defeated by' 10,000 Cu-
ban insurrectionists, losing 3,000 dead, wounded,
and prisoners.
MEXICO.-The civil war in Mexico for the presi-
dency, is assuming large proportions. 60,000 men
are reported under arms, most of them supporting
Dias in opposition to Iglesias.

S- -~ -' _____________________________________________

"Our present rm .- '' policy says tbh London
Tim,- "is evidenly "' .'" 'd towards r -ation
of Colonies, we might, at any :ae ; have plans
ready for *.-:. confederation in time of war,
pending the political confederation, if that should
continue to hang fire. India, and our communica-
tions with India, would form the first object of sol-
icitude, because our Eastern Empire can be ap-
proached both by land and sea, and has possible
enemies not far from its '- :.' .. As respects our
communications with India there are two natural
groups--Mediterranean and Indian-the latter in-
cluding Perim, Aden, and Ceylon. Now, the
garrisons of Gibraltar and Malta are never complete
in time of peace, and we see no provision in the
Mobilization Scheme for bringing them to war
strength. Yet nothing can be more certain than
that, if England were reduced to self-defence, the
enemy must be strong enough to threaten the Med-
iterranean fortresses. Malta and Gibraltar arequite
as likely to be attacked as Portsmouth and Ply-
mouth. Part of the garrisons might be formed from
milita, who would volunteer for the purpose; but
part must consist of regular troops, especially ar-
tillery. Still further east tl-ere should be a China
group, including the Straits settlements. An Au-
stralasian group naturally follows, and we may re-
mark, in passing, that this group has already a very
respectable little army, and is well able to take care
of its own vital points, though the loss of the naval
power of the Mother Country, if separated from us
would throw upon it a great financial burden. The
fifth natural group would bethat of the Cape settle-
ments, which will need help from England for some
time to come. Turning homewards, there would
be a West African group, which is likely to become
much more important in time; then, crossing the
Atlantic, a West Indian group, and a Canadian
group. All these groups should have their mobiliza-
tion schemes ready, and arrange, in concert with
the home authorities, plans of defence, England un-
dertaking to keep the sea open to their commerce
. if they in their turn will keep open the ports needed
for the provisioning and refitment of the ships. It
is a remarkable fact, and one suggestive of the
enormous power 6f this country, that by far the
greater proportion of the coal fields of the world
are in England and her Colonies, and by holding
command of the sea we could blockade such other
coaling ports as exist, and thus starve off the face
of the sea the steamers of all other nations. Indeed
the more the resources of the British Empire are
studied, the stronger becomes the conviction that
with proper organization for war and good govern-
ment, so as to keep the sympathy of the Colonies,
we are absolutely invincible by land and sea. We
are, of course, only speaking from a defensive point
of view. For offensive land operations against great
military Powers, we must have allies Yet even in
combined operations by land and sea the power of
Great Britain is enormous.

The New York Tribune hbas the following:
It was intimated at the time of the arrest of
Elbert A. Woodward that his coming to this
country, his apprehension at Chicago, his return
to this city, and confinement in the Tombs, were
simply preliminary to a full confession on his part
of the entire transactions of the Ring and all its
adherents, great and small. All the circumstan-
ces of the arrest, the ease with which it was effect.
ed, the willingness with which Woodward came to
this city, and the quiet satisfaction with which he
has endured his confinement to prison confirmed
the suspicion that his return was prearranged.
"It is beyond any doubt that Mr. Woodward has
resolved, as the only safe course open to him, to re-
veal all be knows relative to the frauds committed
against the County and State, not only in the mat-
ter of the false vouchers for building the Court house,
but in the fraudulent election of scores of State,
Legislative, County and city officers, many of whom
retain the positions thus corruptly gained, and
many others of whom have since been returned to
office. His revelations will involve many Repub-
lican as well as Democratic officials, and the par-
ticulars of the dividends of the fund raised in the
Court House frauds will involve scores of persons
who have hitherto been unsuspected.
Woodward, as the manager of the pool was in-
trusted with the custody of all the checks which
passed between all the conspirators, and those he
had carefully preserved. During his six years of
voluntary banishment in other lands these checks,
the most valuable property which he probably ever
had in his hands, remained in this city, and it is a
proof of the gross ignorance or strong friendship
existing in some persons that the man or woman to
whom they were intrusted returned them to him in
the Tombs undisturbed, with the accumulated dust
of five years upon them. Not a single one was
missing, and the oaths of more than one witness in
past trials that no such checks had ever existed
will fall to the ground when Woodward takes the
"It is impossible to name any of the many per-,
sons who will be involved in ruin if Woodward
and Tweed join hands in establishing finally the
truth of the great conspiracy of Tammany against
not merely the county, but the whole common
wealth of New York. It is possible at present to
positively assert only what many must have long
since suspected as inevitable, that the full exposure
is soon coming."
An experiment was made yesterday with the
new telephone, recently invented by Professor A.-
Graham Bell, on the telegraph line used by the

Eastern Railroad Company between Boston and
Salem. Professor Bell was assisted by Mr. Wright
and Mr. Nutting, telegraphic operators at the Bos-
ton end, and by Mr. Thomas A. Watson, an asso-
ciate of Professor Bell, assisted by Miss Webb as
operator at the Salem end. .':.:. were present,

by all those present, in turn, without the ,,:I t -

easily recognized. Whispering was found to be
perfectly audible, but was unintelligible. After a
time, instead of grounding the wire at Salem, it
was connected with North Conway, a distance of
143 miles from Boston, thus leaving Salem as a
way station. After this change had been made
there was a slight diminution in the loudness of
the tones, but no difficulty was experienced in car-
rying on conversation. Another change was made
whereby the electrical current was sent to Port-
land, and back by another line to Salem, thus
making Salem a terminal station at the end of
nearly two hundred miles of wire. The result of
this change was that the tones of the speakers
could be heard, but so faintly as to be -:t.:z, :i:_.-I

From the Halifax, N. S., 1.:,r,;i g Herald.
Two qn-ttions, in, view of the doubts as to the
election of President, have been started in the
United States, of course about the constitution.
One is, what authority can examine into the quali-
fications of the electors? On this head the consti-
tation provides that each State shall appoint the
electors; therefore each State would seem to have
the right of deciding on the qualifications of the
men appointed for each. To those who claim that
Congress has the right to consider the qualifica-
tions of electors, the Boston Advertiser," a Re-
publican journal, says that the only possible way
"by which Congress can secure that power is by
constitutional amendment or-by revolution."
That is pretty plain and menacing talk. The
United States papers have not so long escaped
from the misery of one "revolution" that they
should want to rush into another so soon.
The other question is, who is to count the .elec-
toral vote in the Senate, after the certificates have
been handed in to the President of that body?
The constitution strangely enough, does not pro-
vide by whom the votes are to be counted. Chan-
cellor Kent (vol. 1, p. 277) says that in a closely
contested election this point may be all important;
and he leans to the opinion that the President of
the Senate is the person to count the votes. In
1841 the two houses appointed tellers for this pur-
pose, who counted the votes, which were declared
by the Vice President. In the meantime this dis-
cussion over a delicate constitutional point has its
dangers. Chancellor Kent says:--" The experi-
S"ence of ancient and modern Europe has been un-
"favorable to the practicability of a fair and
"peaceable popular election of the executive head
"of a great nation. It has been found impossible
" to guard the election from the mischief of foreign
" intrigue and domestic turbulence, from violence
I"and corruption; and mankind have generally
"I taken refuge from the evils of popular elections
"in hereditary executives, as being the least evil

-ui o te two. foreign intrigue has little en eet
on the internal affairs of the United States; but,
the other elements of the cauldron of revolu-
tion are plenty and active. But, whatever may
come out of the dispute, it must be confessed that
there has been very little excitement so far, and
that the quietude of the people is creditable to
their confidence in the constitution. A constitu-
tional amendment is a better alternative than a
civil war ; but then it may lead to war.

BORIC AcID.-M. Eug. P6ligot last week read a
curious paper at the sitting of the Academy of
Sciences, on the action of Boric Acid and Corates
on vegetation. His experiments on the subject
were made on beans. Twelve porous earthen pots,
of the capacity of about six litres, received four
beans each; at the end of a month, Sept. 3, the
young plants being vigorous and uniform, they were
watered with the same quantity of solutions of vari-
ous salts. Rain falling at that time in abundance,
the watering was only effected once. Among the
substances employed, there were Corate of Soda,
ditto of Potassa and Boric Acid; the effect pro-
duced by these became soon perceptible: the leaves
of the plants subjected to their action soon turned
yellow, while those of the others retained their
dark green hue. All the pots treated with the fer-
tilizing salts, viz., Phosphate and oxalate of Am-
monia, Nitrates of Potassa and Soda, Phosphate of
Lime, and likewise two pots treated with common
- water, all had their plants in good condition dur-
ing the various phases of their development, while
life was completely suppressed in those pots that
had been treated with Boric Acid and its com-
pounds. It is to that acid especially this deleteri-
ous action is to be attributed.
It being difficult to admit a priori that a sub-
stance displaying such poisonous properties in the
case of plants should be perfectly innocuous for ani-
mals, M. Eug. P61igot deems it advisable to in-
quire whether fresh meat preserved by Borax and
Boric Acid and intended for public consumption
may not be dangerous to a certain degree. The

Academy having last year received two boxes of
meat preserved by the process alluded to, and
brought over from Buenos Ayres, the contents had
been found in a good state. Before being em-
ployed for culinary purposes, it is prescribed that
the meat should be repeatedly washed and de-
prived of the brine of borax, sea salt and nitre in
which it has been kept. M. P6ligot is not sure
that this precaution is sufficient, and therefore re-
commends the Academy to appoint a member of
the Section of Medicine to aid the Commission to
which M. P6ligot belongs in the investigation of
the matter.-Paris Correspondents Letter.
