Addition to thc British Fleet. THE Isis, the first steel ship ever constructed for the British Navy, has been successfully launched from Pembroko Dockyard. The Isis is built entirely of steel of tensile strength much above the best iron, and with all possessing great ductility when cold, -manu factured by the Siemens process, and supplied by the Landmore Siemens Steel Company from their near works, Swansea, This being the first vessel in her Majesty's service entirely built of this material, her construction has been watched with keen interest by naval architects and builders. Unlike tho''steel vessels, of the Cömüs class, now'building on the Clyde, she 'will not be sheathed' with wood. Her graceful lines, fine entrance,rand clean run -make horlook'- quite a model ; and it is expected, with her fine lines groat length, and powerful engines, that a high rate of of speed will be attained, and that she will be one of the fastest ships in our Navy.

How the Russians deal with Hostile Peasantry. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 11 August 1877
How the Russians deal with Hostile Peasantry. ' .THE Russians, according to an " occasional correspondent" of the ' Standard,' employ in Asia Minor an effective but not very humane method for preventing hostile peasants from taking up arms against them. They issue proclamations calling upon the inhabitants of tho districts they aro entering to remain at homo. Thoso who comply with this order aro protected. Those who disobey it, and mutinously absent themselves, have their houses burnt down. This savage system of repression by anticipation seems first to have ( been employed in tho country bordering upon tho Georgian frontier, whare there are a certain number of villages inhabited by exiles from the Caucasus, whoso hostility to the Russians might safely be assumed before hand. " Tho conquered can never become tho friends of tho conquerors," said Genghis Khan; and the Russians would seem to be acting on that maxim in Asia Minor. The news as to tho introduction of this now amenity of. ...

My neighbours do keep chaffing me, My better-half does fret. With smiling face but broken heart, I try, but can't forget. Those bran new clothes of ci vio cut, That fitted to a T, And dignities I thought would suit, All, all, has went »glee. That Bridge that spans our noble stream, And roads I did repair.

JY Ballina. (FROM OÜR CORRESPONDENT). August Gth. CONSIDERING the lapse of time sinco you last heard from me, I daresay you think I ought to apologise. Well, perhaps I ought, the fact is, I am a very lazy beggar, and at best only do tilings by fits and starts. Our near neighbour the " Pacific Ocean," has been doing his best to falsify his name for a fortnight past, until the last two days, when he seems to hiive got over his fit of temper. We "dwellers by tho sea" are accustomed to his " little-ways," and just let him " rip," knowing that there is nothing permanent on this subuniary globe. As a reward of pationce our fleet, consisting of a dozen vessels, has been enabled to cross out. Mr. Easton (our iudefatigablo pilot), reports a depth of nine feet six inches on the bar, which is not so bad in these troubled times of war, and " rumours of war." It doesn't suit to have too good an. entrance ac nil times, ns if our bar. were deep enough to admit of Buch vessels as we saw pass the ot...
