The Theatre was kindly placed at their disposal
by :Lh Captain Superintendent, and the actors
availed themselves of this opportunity of giving a
Benefit to the Sailors's Home.
We have not heard what was the sum realized,
but it must have been considerable, the house being
crammed from end to end; many applicants indeed
were unable to obtain even standing room.
rhe perform an'u,-e, were even better than at Pros-
pect, and called forth loud an' frequent applause.
At the conclusion of the entertainment Captain
Moresby, in graceful terms, thanked the Company
for their contribution to the Sailors' Home, and for
the pleasure they had afforded by the "best acting
ever seen in Ireland Island, the best, probably,
ever seen in Bermuda, which," he said, "is no
doubt attributable in great measure to the excel-
lent management of Mr. Randall, the Commissary
We understand that the Company was much
pleased with the tasteful arrangement of the stage,
upon which considerable trouble had been expend-
ed; the scenic decoration of the little Theatre being
in rather a dilapidated condition.

On Tuesday evening last Dr. Nelson lectured to a
good audience in the Mechanics' Hall, on Paris, illus-
trating his subject with magic lantern slides. Those
to whom the gayest-ot all capitals is familiar had well
known sights pleasantly recalled, and those to whom
Napoleonized Paris is unknown, had some faint idea
conveyed of the grandeur ot Paris. Dr. Nelson's next
lecture will be on London, when a better arrangement
of the Hall will admit of his using a larger screen, and
enable the audience to hear him much more easily.
SThe Modern Babylon" should be seen at least pano-
ramically, if it cannot be viewed in reality. After the
magnificent stone facades of Paris, it is refreshing to
have a glimpse of the dingy bricks of the Strand and
Fleet Street, in the dwarf and irregular structures which
line these famous thoroughfares, and to notice the incras .
stations of London smoke on the stone walls and spires.
Paris, to be enjoyed, must be seen in fine weather,
when the cafe frequenters can sit down on the edge of
the street gutter and feel carelessly happy over inno-
cent mouthfuls, when the gardens can be visited, and
the passing frolic of the hour relished. Paris is de-
lightful in find weather, and for a few weeks at a time,
but the feeling creeps over you that the places awfully
artificial, that its diversions and amusements are some-
thing like its buildings-however enticing, painfully
uniform and tedious. Still there is but one Paris in
the world, and it will continue to draw within its gates
the curious from all quarters. Paris has been called
The Paradise of Yankees." Its climate is exhilarat-
ing and more like that of American cities, and life is
free and unrestrained. But in gastronomy Delmo-
nico's up town" will eclipse anything to be had even at
the Cafe Anglais. London has been cast in a differ-
ent mould, and those who have heard Nelson's Paris
should hear Nelson's London and observe the contrast.

METEOROLOGICA..-Mr. Joseph Perenchief, the
Principal Keeper of the Lighthouse on Gibbs Hill,
afforded us a few days since,,an opportunity of in-
specting his notes on the weather taken at five re-
gular intervals every twenty-four hours, from April
1876 to 31bt December, lS7' It records the read-
ings of the thermometer, both wet and dry bulbs,
the Barometrical changes, the quantity of rain fall--
en, the wind, its direction and i,:,r.;:, state of the
weather, &c., forming altogether a most valuable
M]ti-orol:ligi'al Record. It evinces great industry,
perseverance and regularity on the part of Mr. Pe-
renchief, and consequently does him much credit.
Mr. P. has placed this valuable Record in the
Public Library so that allpersons interested in such
matters may have reference to it.

The terrible disaster- at the Tay Bridge, some
particulars of which will be found in our to-day's
issue, will be read with painful interest. The first
report gave the number of human beings, thus hur-
ried to their ends, as 300; we are glad to find,
however, that the number did not exceed 70. The
imagination refused to picture the horrors experi-
enced by those unfortunates in their brief and aw-
ful descent.

FROM AromANISTAN.-The fortune of war again
favors General Roberts. It appears from a des-
patch that on Tuesday 23rd-eight days after his
flight to the Shirpur cantonments-he met the Af-
ghans and routed them. He was apprised of their
intention to attack him and was thus able'probably
entirely to disconcert their plans by assuming the
offensive at the proper moment. The victory opens
to him the City of Cabul with its citadel, the Bala
Hissar, and enables him, aided by General Gough's
forces, which arrived from Jagdallak on the next
day, to re-open communication with India, with
a fair prospect of maintaining it.

ManculMo OrT.-The 19th Regiment (the Prin-
cess of Wales' Own), accompanied by their Colonel,
passed through Hamiltonl towards Spanish Point
on Saturday last. The men looked well and march-
ed with great regularity and steadiness. The
sweet music of the Band drew numbers of persons
from the houses situated on the line of march.

LONDoN, Dec. 29.-The train on the North Brit-
ish Railway, which was precipitated into the Frith
of Tay by tle breaking of the T.w bridgaeft E-lin-
burgh Sunday afternoon t 4-15 o'clock, and cnn.
listed of four cars of the third rs ne of the first
claps one of the second class, d a brakeIpan's
van. Whether the girders of the bridge were car.-.
ried away by the hurricane which was- lreviiling,
before the train eonered upon the bridge, or whether
the girders and the train want donr together, i,
not, and probably never will be, known, as there
are no survivors to tell the story of the dis~ter.
One account says that the portion. of the .Jlbge
which fell consisted of several large superincumbent
girders at the central and navigable portion of the
river, which averages from 40 to 45 feet in depth.
The train must have fallen about 88 feet before
reaching the water. Another dispatch says that:
the 13 girders of the long central spans are all gone,
while still another report says that the gap, which
is nearly half a mile in width, comprises I of the
longest span, each 245 feet in length, and one span
145 feet in lergth.
The damage to the telegraph wires on the bridge,
and the severity of the weather, have interfered
Materially with the transmission of full accounts
of the accident. Indeed, cousnidrable time elapsed
before the nature of the catastrophe was ascertained
by those nearest the scene. Vast quantities of
wreckage, such as the roofs and doors of railwayi
carriages, pieces of the bridge, and articles of wear-i
long apparel are being washed ashore, but as yet no
bodies have been recovered. The Provost of Dap.!
gee, and a party of citizens who started on a steam'
boat for the scene of the disaster as soon as the
tews was received, made a thorough search in amallo
ooats about the bridge, in the hope of rescuing some!
'f the passengers on the ill-fated train, but no trace
cl any survivors was found.
At the last statibn before the tlin went on thea
bdge, the tickets were collected, and tbat thetrain
s then crowded. This eveningthe railway au-
thtrities estimate the total number of lives lost at'
75, while a dispatch to the Press Association plEj i
thb number at not more than 90.
JONDOK, Dec. 30.--The G'overnment has sent
tw Inspectors to ascertain the particulars of ite
Ta, Bridge disaster, and has also directed a formal
in~iry into the occnrience. Divers have thus far
beei unable to diserver the wrecked train. They
willmake another effort to-day. The place where
the wain sank is full of quiksannds, and if the bod-
ies the drowned are not r cnvered within a few

The Drummers of the above Corps gave their
annual Ball in their praetic.e room on the night of
the 26th ultimo. and we understand was one of
more than ordinary gaiety.
The room was most. splendidly decorated with
evergreens, fe-toons, flowers and several beautiful
paintings, together with flag'- of all nations and no
nation at all. Several panels were struck out on
the walls in paint, in a splendid lettered hand, solely
executed by Drummer Paradyne, in which wishes
for the lpro'perity of C-lonel Bennett and family,
and Lieut. ,ud Adjutm1t G. A. Ashby, were ex-
presed. whi-.h little ft'lt within itself bore te-ti-

We are not disposed to prejudge Mr.. Parnells .-
ission and are willing that be ball have an .op-
portunity to-explain it to the American public. But:
if its purpose in what it is slated to be.we have o
hesitation in condemning it. Mr. Parnell who'has.-
just embarked, is accompanied by his "ebmpatriots-.
Dillon and Davit. They were greeted with no. en- .
thbnusiasm on their departure from Dublin, nor dur-
ing Iheir journey thence tfdQue'nslr-, 'v nor on their
arrival and embarkation. The avi-wed object -of
the visit to America is to makLp colleclions" from
Irishmen in 'this country. and ,or.,,.
