THE RED WHITE AND BLUE IN THE THAMES. The ship-rigged boat, Red White and Blue, of 2| tons, 2 Captain Hudson, which has made such an extraordinary passage across the Atlantic from New York, and put into Margate a few days since, has arrived in the river off "'1, Greenhithe. There were only two persons in the boat, Captain Hudson, and his mate, F. E Fitch. There was also a dog on board, which, however, died shortly aster leaving Margate, on her way round to the Thames. On the J8th, in fat 31 N, long. 56 VV, about midnight, the boat struck something very solid, and glancing on the port bow, all sail set. stopped ship's headway, but found she did nollcllk. After the 15th did not see any sail Until August 5, when they spoke and went alongside the barque Princess Royal, of Yarmouth (N S), long. 21, W, 8even days from Dublin for Q'lehec. On the 6th a blind Bea came upon port quarter, which threw the ship on her beam ends; she righted in hillt-a-minnte. 8th, the boat Was again thrown on her beam end<. 14th. 27 miles N of Ushant, shipped a heavy sea, which threw the ship for the fourth time on her beam-ends, and had to bale the water Out. 14th, noon, made the Bill of Portland. 16th, blowing heavy, and got towed into Margate. There was no chronometer in the boat, and the ship was worked by dead reckoning. Captain Hudson and hiss companion were only enabled to have their provisions warm on very few occasions, owing to the sea making over them. They kept watch and watch, and when they landed at Margate they were, as may be imagined, in a somowhat dis- tressed condition. The boat is of iron, 27 feet long, and 6 feet 1 inch beam. She carried 120 gallons of water for the voyage. • •• ■ ■ ■ — ■■■ THE HORRORS OF W A.R. A mournful episode of the war comes from Prossnitz. A farmer living in a hamlet near that town had a wife and two children, and such was the woman's terror of the Prussians when she heard they were coming, that her husband, to satisfy her, placed her iti an underground cellar with their two little ones, and built up the door- way, leaving some food inside. The Prussians entered the place, and among others obliged this poor man to accompany them, with his horse and cart, for a day's journey, as they said, But the man was brought on from place to place, and at last, when be was suffered to return, and reached his own house, several days had elapsed. On the way back he began to calculate how little food had bein left with his wife and children, and, horror. stricken at the dreadful thought that their cries might not be heard, his hair is said to have turned white on his homeward journey. His fears were but too real. He tore down the masonry, searched for those so dear to him, but only found three lifeless bodies, half devoured by rats. Reason left him at the dreadful sight, and he is now in hospital, a lunatic. Another horrible story has been related by an officer high on the Austrian staff. A poor peasant couple in Austrian Poland had three sons, fine young men. One of them was taken by the conscription. As the parents were poor, the two younger brothers determined to follow the for- tunes of the eldest for awhile, and accompanied him voluntarily to the army. At the battle of Scalitz, the general commanding saw from an eminence that the brigade Scholtz was suffering dreadfully from the enemy's artillery fire, and one of the staff captains was ordered to send an orderly with instructions to the officer at the head of the brigade to retire. The trooper nearest to him was was a soldier of the Green Lancers, by name Skar- bowsky, and one of the three brothers just referred to. He was given the despatch to deliver, and rode on gallantly through the rain of bullets. But as he galloped forward, his horse made a stumble over a dead charger, and thus, bringing the man to a halt, enabled him to see a lancer lying on the ground with his leg torn off by a ball, and raising his hands to him in a supplicating manner. He alighted to give him a moment's assistance, and coming nearer, was horror-stricken to recognise Z, his brother. He searched everywhere for water, but could find none, and with a mind as agonised as was his poor brother in body, he began to think whether he should remain with him or deliver the dispatch, which he knew to be an order to the brigade to retire, and which might save hundreds of lives. He kissed his brother, and said, with tears, 'I can do nothing for you, and I am on a duty I must perform and he mounted his horse again, plunged into the terrible fire, and delivered p his letter to the brigade adjutant. When he was raturning, most strange to say, his horse again stumbled over a dead body, and this time fell, a.nd threw his rider from the saddle. The dead man was his other brother The man became reckless, rode back to the staff, who were caught up in the action themselves, and this soldier fought band to hand in the melee, as did the rest of the escort, Without himself receiving a scratch. But it was sad news be had to send home. The Emperor has been personally informed of these strange facts, and the case has deeply moved him. His Majesty has ordered the promotion of the surviving lancer, and has sent to intimate to his poor parents that he will do all in his power to alleviate their un- happy and bereaved position. 6 CHEERFULNESS VERSUS CHOLERA. Dr. Forhes Winslow writes a long letter to a contemporary, from which we make the following extract In addition to the attention now paid to the physical treatment of cholera, is it not a matter entitled to serious consideration whether we have not at command some powerful moral remedies by means of which the epidemic may be shorn of much of its virulence ? It is the duty-tbe solemn obli- Z, gation, of those capable of influencing public opinion, to devise means of allaying the cholera panic, and of diverting the public mind from the consideration of the epidemic to more pleasing- topics of contemplation. What, it may be aske(f are the best means within our reach to effect, so desirable an end? Many may be incredulous as to the possibility of creating by mental remedies a revulsion of the mind, thus destroying or render- ing inert one of the most potent predisposing causes of cholera. When Rome was threatened with an epidemic disease the public authorities marched With solemn pomp and ceremony to the temple dedicated to Febris, into which a nail was driven. This was done for the purpose of appeasing an C, angry deity. The mental effect of this, to our lrnnds, superstitious proceeding was to allay public apprehension, excite into action the tonic passion of hope, and thus, by dissipating all fear from the lnind, invigorate the physical health, increase the ^ervons energy, and so ward off the pestilential disease. May we not adopt somewhat analogous lneans in order to arrive at similar results ? L' There are other points in relation to this impor- tant matter which deserve serious consideration. It is a question whether we have not within our Power effectual means of acting upon the public jttind en masse fur the purpose of creating a new V?rtl to the current of choleraic thought and of n ^spelling unnecessary fears and morbid appre- hensions. God has so intimately associated the sPmtual with the material portion of our organi- sation that He will not consider that we are slight- rJjS His dispensations or making light of His pro- ldence, if, in obedience to His will, and in con- °rmity to recognised mental and physical laws ^fluencing the mysterious union of matter and Pirit, we adopt moral or mental means for curing r preventing disease by acting upon the physical structure through the powerful agency of mind. Such being a view of the question sanctioned alike by religion and science, it behoves us to consider whether some means might not be adopted for the purpose of abstracting the public attention from all depressing apprehensions, thus rendering the system less susceptible to the influence of those physical poisons alleged to give rise to the disease. We should make a strong effort to dismiss from the mind the contemplation of subjects calculated to awaken desponding apprehensions, to depress the emotions, exhaust the vital strength and nervous energy. Every legitimate mode of inducing cheer- fulness and serenity of mind should be as much as possible encouraged. Constant and agreeable occu- pation will do much good. Pleasurable trains of thought should be cultivated either by reading, con- versation, music, or agreeable society. The exercise of the charitable feelings, the deter- mination to keep in abeyance all corroding mental emotions, such as anger, jealousy, revenge, covetous- ness, and the effort to cultivate 'love, peace, and goodwill towards men,' will be found of positive advantage in invigorating the physique. It should be the duty of those whose special position in life does not render it necessary that they should acquaint themselves with the progress of the epidemic, or inform their minds of the various remedies suggested for its cure, to abstain carefully from perusing the accounts constantly published of the progress of the disease. The less the mind dwells upon this painful subject, the less probability will there be of the poison having any effect upon the body. This is quite compatible with the exercise of proper prudence and precaution, and a right of recognition of the inscrutable but wise decrees of Providence. o EXECUTION AT MANCHESTER. For the first time this century the inhabitants of Manchester have had the opportunity of witnessing an execution in their own town. Few things could better indicate the change which has come over the sprit of English law than a comparison of the two last executions which have occurred in Manchester. One was in 1798, when a young man named George Russell was found guilty of robbing a bleachcroft, and condemned to death. When the last morning of his life came he was led from the gaol, and dressed for the occasion in a clean white shirt, without vest or coat, was placed on an unsaddled horse, and con- ducted with cruel slowness through the immense multitudes that gathered in street after street. Two miles off, on Newton Heath, the gallows was erected, and the culprit had to bear all the suspense of that journey, and run the gauntlet of a succession of crowds, before the hangman's hands let loose his im- prisoned spirit. On Saturday last the culprit was again a youth, James Burrows, only 19 years old. His crime was murder. Although so young he had but a bad reputation, and he is now suspected to have been concerned in the deaths of two men before he committed the crime for which his own life was forfeited. On the 21st of May last he beat to death a labourer employed by his father, because the man refused to lend him a few shillings to spend in drink. Since his condemnation he has had the continuous attention of the prison chaplain, and of Mr Thomas Wright, known throughout the north of England as the prison philanthropist.' His behaviour in prison has been unlike what it was outside. lie has been docile, constant in his attendance upon religious offices, and professing great penitence. He com- mitted to memory hymn after hymn, and was con- stantly quoting them. On the morning of his death he signed the following confession, which he had asked the chaplain to write for him I, James Burrows, do acknowledge that I have, by I suddenly cutting off the life of John Brennan, made his wife a widow and his children fatherless. May God help them. My sin is ever before me now and, rather than linger a miserable life on earth, I would wish to cast myself on the mercy of God. I ac- knowledge the righteousness of his law, and the laws of my country. As I do not wish to make a speech on the drop, I beg, through this paper, which 1 have asked the chaplain to write out for me to sign, to warn all young people of both sexes to be obedient to their parents, not to neglect the Sabbath, the school, and the Bible, and against all profaneness and debauchery, and especially against evil company, my ruin. My last word is, may God be merciful to me a sinner, through Jesus Christ sake. Amen. (Signed) JAMES Buanows. From the condemned cell, August 25, 1866. Witness; James Gretrex, Warder. The excitement consequent upon so unprecedented a thing as a hanging was such as to make thousands of people visit the neighbourhood of the gaol on Thursday and Friday. On the former day thp authorities found the streets about the gaol so crowded by visitors that the men engaged in raising barriers, &c., could not proceed with their work. The streets were therefore closed by order, the ordinary traffic was turned into other channels, and the foot passengers, who merely wanted to stare at what was being done, were kept back by strong bodies of police. From about noon on Friday the crowds in and about New Bailey-street were very great. It was evident that most of the people came only to have a passing glimpse of so strange a thing as a gallows, and having seen that were content to go home again. There were, however, others who were, even so early, looking out for places for occupa- tion on the following morning. As morning approached the crowd increased rapidly the patter-patter of ironed clogs was cease- less on the pavement; and the whistling and yelling, mingled with the singing of vulgar songs, was such as to suggest that the crowd might be going to Knot Mill Fair instead of to see the strangling of a human being. By six o'clock on Saturday morning there must have been from twenty to thirty thousand people, and as eight o'clock approached considerable additions had been made to that number. A large proportion of these assembled were of the lowest class. Some time before the execution actually took place, the noises which had been so continuous were stopped, and all eyes directed to the scaffold, where men had been sent to make the final preparations. The chief of these was to place a screen which should hide the full length of the body from the view of the multitude. The mob greeted these workmen with a hideous yell. After spending a restless night the criminal awoke, and passed his remaining time with his religious attendants. Scarcely a tremor was noticed as Calcraft approached and pinioned him. The pro- cession from the condemned cell to the scaffold was formed—Calcraft at the right, and the chaplain at the left of Burrows. As they reached the steps of the drop the chaplain's feelings overcame him, and he had to retire. As soon as his head was visible to the crowd outside shouts of £ Hats off' and Shame were raised, and the most utter confusion prevailed. As Calcraft pulled down the white cap on the convict's face the mob started a most hideous yelling, and con- tinued it until the rope was adjusted. The drop fell, and all was over. Burrows died after a few slight convulsions. About an hour after the body was cut down and buried in the precincts of the gaol.
BREECHLOADERS FOR THE ENGLISH ARMY. At last the English troops are to be armed with breech- loaders. Cavalry, infantry, artillery, and marines will all have them early next year, and as soon as possible afterwards the Militia and Volunteers will be similarly equipped. In fact, from this time neither at Enfield nor at any of the large private firms occasionally em- ployed, will any more muzzleloaders be made for the Government; 2-50,000 JEnfiulds converted into breech- loaders will be ready by the Lit of April, and after that in- stalment has been completed for the regular forces, all the rest for the Volunteers and Militia and Colonial regiments will be taken in hand as fast as possible. Already the Canadian Government has ordered 40.000, and the resources of the Enfield Ordnance Manufactory are severely taxed but such arrangements are now being made as will enable them to turn out at least 1,000 con- verted rift,s per day. We use the term con verted in iu plainest and most literal sense. The barrel and grooving of the Enfield rifle, which have made it the best cheap weapon of its kind is not interfered with in the process of conversion. Long series of test3 at Wool- wicu have shown that its shooting powers, both as regards penetration and accuracy, "have been rather increased than diminished by the alteration and more than this it would be impossible to say in its favour and when we add that the 'conversion' coats no more at Enfield than about 14s per rifle, we think we have said enough to show that this country has a cheaper breech- loader than is known to exist in any other country. It would be tedious, and perhaps not very intelli- gible to the general reader, to explain the peculiar mechanism of the breech in technical terms, and how it is applied to the Enfield barrel. A few plain words, however, may give a general idea. of the process. The ordinary rifle barrel is simply shortened at its breech end by about three inches. To this is screwed a very strong, hollow half barrel, and over this groove or opening is a solid piece of metal fastened to the side of the groove w.ith a com- mon hinge This opens or shuts on its hinge with a simple motion of the finger. When open, the cartridge is instantly inserted into the base of the barrel, and when closed the force of the explosion has a solid piece of metal to resist it. There are, of course, little minute mechanical details connected with it, but such, in the rough, is the general prin- ciple of this breechloader and when we add that all the parts are gauged to the thousandths of inches, and make a perfect mechanical fit it will easily be seen how complete is the apparatus for closing the breech, and how massive is the resistance which the breech-piece offers to the back shock. The arrange- ment for firing is very simple, but most admirably adapted to do away with that nuisance of modern warfare—the percussion cap. The cap and cartridge are now made up together. The cartridge contains the usual charge of powder, but instead of being enclose in paper is contained in a thin slip of brass about as thick as ordinary tinfoil, and this again is coated outside with a water-proofed material some- thing like oiled pig skin Thus the whole cartridge has the rigidity of a bullet, and when placed in the chamber offers sufficient resistance to the stroke of the hammer of the gun to allow of its percussion cap being lit and the whole ignited. How this stroke of the hammer or cock readies it when enclosed in the chamber is very simply effected. Instead of the hammer, which is one of the ordinary kind now used in all rifles, falling on the percussion cap, it strikes upon a stout little steel bolt supported by a spring, which, passing by an aperture' through the'solid breech piece, abuts full oti the percussion powder at the base of the cartridge. Of course as this little bolt is struck down by the hammer the explosion of the charge is instant, while as the gun is cocked and the breach opened the bolt is pushed out by the spring ready for instant action again. It will naturally be asked what becomes of the brass casing of the cartridges left in the barrel. These, in the very act of opening the breech, are pushed down by a spring, and either thrown or picked out as the marksman himself may please. From this description, it may be thought that the apparatus is, if not cumbrous, at least a complicated piece of machinery. No idea, however, could be more remote from the real facts of the case, and whatever complexity may appear to exist in this invention arises solely from the difficulty of describing the action of screws and springs with as much ease and simplicity as they work themselves. As compared with the Prussian needle gun the efficiency of the English breechloaders is nearly four times greater in all that relates to accuracy of aim or rapidity of fire, while as regards the safety and ease with which the breech mechanism is worked it is beyond any degree of comparison. There are eight distinct movements of the breech required to load and fire the needle-gun—there are only four neces- sary in Mr Snider's. Seven rounds per minute have been fired from the Prussian gun, and the average is four, while 21 rounds per minute have been fired from the English breechloaders, and the average, it is believed, will beaten. One of the great objections to the use of these weapons was the reason alleged that the men would fire away their ammunition so fast that almost every other man would require a special tumbril for his own supply. It is a curious fact, however, that as far as our military authorities have yet been able to ascertain, the Prussian soldiers in the recent great battles do not appear to have used a single round more of ball cartridge than the Aus- trians. In fact, in some cases where the Prussians achieved decided successes, their expenditure of small ammunition was actually stated to have been looked for as likely to occur with our own troops while using muzzle-loaders. The Prussian fire, in fact, seems to have been short and decisive, and never having been commenced but at the proger moment, and then with a rapid and devastating effect, to have carried all before it. The argument, therefore, as to the wasteful expenditure of ammunition becomes absolutely worthless, if the military statistics of the Prussians are to be relied on, and they are the only nation that have ever used breechloaders in their army, and used them, too, with an effect which, has astonished all Europe. If breechloaders only super- seded the necessity of capping the guns they would effect an immense improvement. The present weapon of Mr Snider has been tested in every way in which it is possible to test an inven- tion of the kind. It has been tried with gas to ascer- tain leakage, with the strongest charges of powder it has been left out under water and to rust, both loaded and unloaded, and in no one instance has it yet been found to fail. Three targets made with three of these trial weapons actually gave a mean deviation of only little over four inches, at a range of 500 yards. So, too, the brass-coated ammunition is a great improvement from its strength and water- proof protection. Of course, neither soldier nor civilian thinks of putting his ammunition into water for five or six hours before using it, but it is at least it comfort to know that in the event of such an un- pleasant contingency happening it might occur to those cartridges without in the slightest degree affecting them. Any one who knows how careless soldiers in the field are of their cartridge boxes, and how frequently they are left out in the rain, and always more or less exposed to damp, will appreciate the value of even the mest temporary waterproofing for cartridges. One brigade, at the battle of the Alma, was rendered almost defenceless through numbers of the men getting their cartridges wet while fording the river. No less than 40,000,000 rounds of this improved ammunition have been ordered, and, as we have said, 250,000 breech- loaders have been more or less commenced upon, and both guns and cartridges will all be ready by the 1st of April. This is a fact upon which we can most sincerely congratulate the country, and General Peel deserves every praise for the energy and industry with which he has acted in the matter.-Tlle Times.
DRUNKENNESS.—It were better for a man to be subject to any vice, than to drunkenness; for all other vanities and sins are recovered, but the drunkard will never shake off the delight of beastliness for the longer it possesseth a man, the more he will delight in it, and the older he the more will be subject to it; for it dulleth. the spirtts, and destroyeth the body. as ivy doth the old tree; or as the worm that engendereth in thu kernel of the nut.-Sir Waller Raleigh. RELIGIOUS J3ELIFF,-1 envy no quality of the mind, or intellect in others, be it genius, power, wit, or fancy; hut if I could choose what would be llJost delightful, and I believe most useful to me. I should prefer a firm religious belief to any other bJessing; for it makes life a discipline of goodness creates new hopes, when all earthly hopes vanish; and throws over the decay, the destruction of existence, the most gorgeous of all lights; awakens life even in death, and from destruction and decay calls up beauty and divinity. — S<r Humphrey Dewey. MARRIED, NOT MATED.—'There is nothing, pprhaps, so terrible to a mail as the feeling that he has matrimo- nially, made a mistake, that he has deluded himself that the woman he has taken 'for better for worse' can never be the wife of his dream-fancy to him.

THE CRUELTIES OF A CONVENT LIFE -Count de Montalembert is dying. His daughter took the veil at the Sacre Cceur some months since. As an acknowledg- ment of the great services rendered to the Church of Rome by her distinguished father, his Holiness has granted the young recluse permission to quit her convent daring one day in each week, in order to attend her father's death-bed. This is a rare concession. A voung lady, the only child of her widowed mother, entered a convent last year. Her mother literally broke her heart trora grief, and died. ainly did her family petition, that she might be j emitted to tllke leave of her dying parent in presence of the summoned to administer the extreme unetim. The only concession the Church could be induced to make was that the orphan girl should be permitted to kneel on the pavement of the court-yard whilst the procession accompanying her mothei's funeral passed the closed gate's of the convent, and thus that Sh3 might hear the chant of the attendant priests. Thus much the Church conceded to filial affection, but no mors.—Paris Leiter. I FRINGING THE ORDERS OF COUNCIL —At the petty session held tor the borough of Bury St. Edmunds, on Thursday. Air J. S. Pilillip,, ofGrear. Barton, a county magistrate, and chairman of one of the union committees appointed to carry out the regulations made by the local authority, was charged with having removed tup sheep upon a certain highway, a greater distance than 500 yards contrary to the provisions of the orders of the Privy Council, whereby he had incurred a penalty not exceeding X5 for each of the said animals. It. was proved in evidence that the sheep in question were purchased at Cambridge, on Saturday, and removed to the Bury Station on Monday, with a proper license, but on reaching Bury it was found that, according to the last Order of Council, they could not be removed to Mr Phillips's premises. about thee miles off, until they had remained at Bury twenty-eight days. Thnccfendant. admitted that ha had. offended against the law, but pleaded in extenuation that the sheep were valuable animals, that they could not be properiy taken care. of at Bury, and he thought it better to remove them and take iiis chance of detection and penalty than run the risk of losing the sheep through the want of proper care. The magistrates and all con- cerned agreed that the last Order ot Council was uu- necessarily severe, but they had no alternative but to carry out the law, and they therefore iiueci the defendant £10 and costs. THE NEW LAW ON REFORMATORY SCHOOLS.'—In ad- dition to the Industrial School Act already noticed, a statute was passed at the close of the recent session to consolidate and amend the acts relating to reformatory schools. There are 38 provisions with a schedule of forms, and considerable alterations have now been made to render reformatory .schools,' which must be kept distinct from industrial schools,' of public advantage to youthful offenders. 011 the Secretary of Siate being satisfied that a school has been properiy fitted up for the better training of youthful offenders, In may certify the same, and it is to be opened to government inspection. Where certified, on complaint, the certificate may be withdrawn. A court may send an offender not over 1G years of ape to one of the establishments after his term of imprisonment has expired, there to be detained for a period not less than two and not more than five years. A youthful offender under ten is not to be sent there unless previously convicted. In choosing a school the courtis to select one of the religious persuasion of the offender, and he may be visited by a minister of the same persuasion. A feature in the act is as to 'licences.' After 18 months detention in a school, a boy may be licenced to some trustworthy and respectable person, and the licence may be renewed every three months during the period of detention. Another feature is, that boys may be apprenticed notwithstanding the period of detention has not expired. By proper behaviour a boy may now be recovered. Furthermore, where youthful offenders have, or may be, pardoned from penal servitude on condition j of placing themselves in some charitable institution, thev may now be sent to a reformatory establishment, and dealt with as other inmates. dealt with as other inmates.
HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PiLLS.—Marvellous cures ot scsatica, stiff joints, paralysis of the limbs, and ether crippling di eases of the bones, sinews, and muscles, have been accom- plished by Holloway's Ointment. It is the only unguent which produces any impression on these complaints. The Pills also work wonders. The ointment and pills should be both used at the same time, for the action of the one is greatly assisted by. that of the other. Why should any human being suffer from the abovementioned maladies, when Ilolioway's Ointment and Pills are to be found in every city and town in the world? These noble medicaments ure composed of rare balsams, and as benign and safe as they are powerful and efficacious.
