Capture or Ma.irUe.la and Death, of
The correspondent oftheLondon Times,
under date of April 14th, girea the follow
ing description of the capture of that place
and the death of Theodore :
THEODORE XASiUCEES IHS PRlSOXEEi
He has met with a death far more mer
ciful than he dealt out to better men, and
far more honorable than any trait in his
character, except perhaps, his dauntless
bravery and invincible determination, de
served" Those few to whom, these quali
ties recommended him to some sort ol mer
cy, had only to look for a moment into
the fearful charnel-house, the loatbesome
human shambles which was yesterday ex
posed to our horrified gaze as we nearcd
Magdala, and every lingering trace of com
passion at once disappeared. We had
been told by his prisoners, our fellow-coun
trymen, that the day before the arrival of
the iintisn army, 1 neodore baa summoned
all the prisoners to his, presence, and had
in cold blood butchered over three hun
dred of them, some with his own hand,
almost within eight and bearing of the rest,
who momentarily expected the same fate.
But though details of this kind make one
shudder, the mind of a civilized man, whoso
whole experience runs counter to a vivid
faith in the actual existence of such atroc
ities, somehow cannot folly realizo thijm,
or take in their wholo terrible import.
Yesterday however; nothing was left to
the imagination, the tragedy was forced in
all its naked horror upon ourrevolted
senses. Astrange smell, for which there
was no apparent cause, made some or onr
party loot over the ede of n steep cliS,
almost within a few yards of the spot from
which the puns were beginning to play
upon Magdala, and there on a ledge abont
fifty feet below thcra, lay two largo heaps
of mangled human bodies, closely piled on
each other in ghastly confusion, their limbs
protruding from the mass in all sorts of
repulsive attitudes and contortions, nnd
presenting altogether a sccno of horror
such as no pen could adequately describe,
could any pen be found to nndertako the
task. Here was the latest, though not by
any means the worst, specimen of the pious
handiwork of the self-elected Scourge of
God. More commonly he mutilated and
disabled "his victims, leaving, them to die
of their wounds, or to tho more tender
mercies of the hyenas. On Dalanta one
of tlie force picked np two human hands,
evidently not long cut off. The ouly ex
ceptional cruel feature in this last massa
cre was its unusual wantonness. The vic
tims were, many of them, prisoners for
very slight offences, and men of no im
portance, who might with perfect safety
have been set free. Theodore feared the
expense of keeping them during -a long
seige, and considered it perhaps derogato
ry to bis character to let them go, so he
inE CAXXO.VADE, ETC.
Magdala has been taken, and Theodore,
killed by his own hand, lies, under tho
guard of a British sentry, in the last and
strongest of the wondrous series of his
strongholds. It would be affectation to
pity a tyrant who himself knew no pity,
who was as unscrupulous and crafty as he
was cruel, and who had indeed every rea
sop to style himself the 'Scourge of God,"
sent to punish the people.
Of the strength of Alagdala itself, it is
perhaps impossible to give an adequate
idea. It is protected by lofty, nnd almost
overhanging cliffs, so precipitous that a cat
could not climb them, except at two points,
north and south, at each of nhich a steep,
narrow path leads np to a stroug gateway.
It was by the northern gateway, as being
on the side commanded by Selassee, that
our troops bad to effect an entrance.
One Snider many. In another instant
every man anywhere near with a rifle in
his hand was banging and blazing away aa
if all his prospects in this world and the
next depended upon the numberof charges
he could get rid of in a minute. This nat
urally created an impression that an action
was going on somewbere, and a general
scamper was at once made to a spot which
commanded a better view of the plain be
fore Magdala, and on which, to the great
delight of the 'scamperers. some of Theo
dore's guns and mortars were unexpected
ly found. An artillery officer, Lieutenant
Nolan, happening to be one of the party,
promptly resolved to nse their own guns
against the enemy if possible, and this
being considered apparently in the light of
a humorous practical jcke by a few civil
ians and "loafers" escaped from their staff
or regimental duties to the front, a sort of
comic siege of Magdala was earned on by
a force of all arms, dresses, and undresses
for more than an hour.
Oneof these excursions led, odly enough,
to the unearthing of M. Bardel, the French
man who has been suspected of poisoning
Theodore's mind against the captives. On
the first of the pnemy's guns being fired
by Lieutenant Nolan, a woman rushed out
frantically from a small' tent near the line
of the fire, evidently under the impression
that her tent was about to undergo a heavy
cannonade, and with vehement gesticula
tions offered to capitulate. The tent was
entered, and there in bed, to the intense
astonishment of every one, was found a
European, who proved to he .M. BardeL
After this incident the siege of Magdala
was resumed, and to the intense gratifica
tion of the beseiging force, one round shot
from Theodore's own gun wassent I'ob
bing along the ground sufficien tly near him
and his small party to indnce them to re
treat into Magdala and desist from the at
tempt tbey had hitherto been making to
carry-a gimup there. Afurthi the firing
ceased altogether on the part of the be
seiged.and became very languid on the
part of the beseigers.
TUE FOKTBESS REDUCED.
Magdala (April 17th) correspondence of
the London Times says: Magdala wa3
burned this afternoon, and dense cclsams
of flame and smoke from its lofty summits
arc still proclaiming far and wide to the
wondering tribes of semi-savage warriors
who infest the eurroinding country that
endi .j the act 0f Knriand's
the reign ot their greatest enemy is at an
one of the dirtiest that wb hnvr- wn in
Abyssinia, while tbe palace of the great
Emperor Theodore differed only from the
surrounding huts of his humblest subjects
in being larger, two-storied, and with a
thatched roof, not conical but oblong, giv
ing it much the appearance of an English
barn, except that no decent English firm
er would allow any animal that he valued
to live in a building so dirty and ill-ventilated.
Id the workshop of bis European
artisans there were, of coarse, many signs
of seders, civilimticm, though nearly all of
a practical, very few of n strictly ornament
al or luxurious kind. "Workmen's tools
and huge glass tumblers, apparently of
English make, seemed the principle articles
of import, drinking being, next to fighting,
the great business of a wealthy Abyssinian's
life, and these mixed up with crosses, cen
sers, mitres, bells tho spoils of Gondar
churches Amharic Bibles, odd volumes
of encyclopedias, foolscap paper, old match
locks, pistols, swords, powder flasks and'
percussion caps, formed altogether aa
strange a jumble as it would be easy to
The "loot" on the whole, has rather dis
appointed the captors. Mr. Holmes, for
instance, wno came out nere as arcmeoio
gist for the British Museum, and who has
hitherto had a singularly disappoiutingand
unfruitful journey, was lucky enough to
rescue a handsome crown, probably an
archbishop's, and a gold chalice, bearing
the following inscription in Amharic: "The
chalice of kin? Adam Se.eud. called Ya
soo, tbe son of Queen Brahn Morgussa,
presented to Kwoskwan Sanctuary (Uou
dar). May my body and soul be purified.
Weight, twenty-fivo workkits of pure gold,
value uve uuuureu uuuurs. jiuuu uy ivui

has also been found, and is, I believe, to bo
sent home to the Queen.
THEODORE 8 UlST MOJIE.VTS DESERTION" AND
I saw in the hands of an English soldier,
what, under the circumstances, was cer
tainly a very singular and interesting bit
or loot, a Eix-oarrelleU revolver, with an
inscription declaring that it was presented
by the Queen to the Emperor Theodore,
in token of her gratitude for "the kind
ness shown by him to her servant I'low-
don." The soldier told me that he had
seen five pistols with this inscription, and
had a hard fight to get one for himself; so
far, only one nas been given up to the prize
agents. It is a curious instance of the
irony of history that it was not improba
bly with one of theso very pistols tokens
of the British Queen's gratitude for kind
ness shown by him to" her servant that
Theodora shot himself at the approach of
a ISntiiu soldier, for there is now no Uonbt
that he did shoot himself. A soldier of
the Thirty-third swears that he witnessed
the act, and what is more important, both
of the medical men on the committee ap
pointed to identity the body and inquire
into the cause of his death, declare unhes
itatingly that the fatal wound must have
been self-innicted. twice his followers
stood aloof from him in sullen, resentful
disobedience when summoned to his side,
and positively refused, when ho invited
them as the last chance to fly from Mag
dala, to accompany mm and any longer
share his fortune. Even his favorite and
most distinguished chiefs, the very men
who in the end remained faithful and died
with him, seemed to have wavered strange
ly between their old allegiance and their
From tho plainness of his dress, the
body was not at first recocnized, but as
soon as it was identified, and on the ap
proach of air ttouert Napier, drawn rorth
into tho principal pathway, an involuntary
cheer burst forth from the soldiers around.
Such a cheer over the body of a fallen foe
rather jarred upon tho nerves, but still it
was natural and pardonable enough, for at
bottom it meant, not exultation over the
death of an enemy, but delight at the sud
den discovery beyond all doubt that the
last object of a tedious campaign had been
accomplished. and that there was now noth
ing to prevent t lie lorce from turning its
face in triumph home. Theodore's escape
was dreaded up to the latest moment as
the possible source of further detention in
Abyssinia, and the soldiers would have
been more than human if tbey had repress
ed the first outbreak of joy at discoverinir
that from this dread evil they were now
A3 the first soldiers appeared above the
stockade the chiefs were shot down, but
Theodore, who had already dropped his
royal robe ot silk to escape unobserved,
fled from the gateway to a retired spot
higher up on the citadel, and there soot
himself, putting the pistol into his month.
I neodore s body was touml, not near
thoseof his chiers in thegateway, but alone
on the hill above. Alter sending you" a
telegram to say that he had killed himself,
I heard that the commander-in chiel had
telegraphed home that he was killed in
battle, and this now Eeems to be the belief
of those who are perhaps likely to know
best. His face seemed to me rather a dis
appointing one after all that has been said
abont it, but then it was impossible to'
judge properly after death, especially as
the eye was said to be, from its fire and
expression, the most remarkable feature.
There was a look of bloated, sensual in
dulgence abcut the cheeks by no means
heroic oHcingly, but the forehead was. in
tellectual and the mouth singularly deter
mined and cruel. A very strange smile
lingered about the Iip3. as if in the death
throe bis last thought had been one of
triumph, at having baulked his conqnercrs
by dying a king.
How A Man Freezes to Death. MPou
chet lately read an Interesting paper on
this enbject before the French Academy of
Science. The inferences are as follows:
1. That the first phenomenon produced by
cold is a contraction of the capillary vessels
to sncn an extent mat a giouuic or mood
cannot enter; these vessels, therefore, remain
2. The cold phenomenon Is an alteration
of tbe blood globules, which amounts to their
3. Every animal completely frozen is abso
lutelydead, and no power can reanimate it.
4. When only part Is frozen, that part Is
destroyed by gangrene.
5. If the part frozen Is not extensive, and
only a few disorganized globules pass into
circulation, the aDfrnal-may recover. '
6. TJutJf, on the contrary, the frozen part
Is of considerable, extent, then tbe mass of
altered globules brought into tue circulation
when the part is thawed, rapidly kills the an
imal. 7. For this reason a half frozen animal may
live a Iocs time If maintained in this condi
tion, clue: the altered globules do not get In
to circulation ; but it expires rapidly as toon
as tbe frozen part Is thawed.
S. In all cases of congelation, death Is due
to the alteration of the blood globules, and
not to any effect ou the nervous system.
9. It results from these facts that tbe less
rapidly the frozen part is thawed, the more
slowly altered globules And their way Into

speaking of the fact, says :

A IVeYr Port or KeadcxvoHS for
Port Chalmers. N. has been made a
free port for whaling vessels. This place,
according to Lippincott, is the port of
Dnnedin, colony of Otago, on the south
east side of the middle island; in latitude
42 53 S. and longitude 170 50 E. Tho
opening of tho port to whalers was brought
about through the efforts of Mr. George
L. Siss, of the firm of Bates, Sise k Co.,
who addressed the following letter to the
Chamber of Commcrco of llunedin :
To lie Jhim4ii Claabrr of Coauicrr;
I would respectfully submit to your
judgment the importance of offering in
ducements to whalers to make Fort Chal
mers a port of rendezvous. There is little
doubt but that it would forward tbe inter
est of our commerce and shipping in a
great degree. Tho value of tnis trade
may be estimated (in a smaller proportion)
by the statistics of tho Sandwich Islands
for tbe year 165S. In that year 53o whal
ing ships called at these islands, and the
transhipments of oil and bone amounted
to 21,000-tons. Besides ctvinsr another
-outlet for merchandise, and creating more
demand lor our labor, it would lurnish
freights for many of tho home ships that
at the present time have to seek lading
eisewnero ; and in giving return lreignls
to vessels, must havo a tendency to lower
the inward bound charters. Tho great,
and seemingly, only obstacle to Port
Chalmers, as a port of call for whalers, is
tue port cnarges ; otherwise it has every
advantage, being the centre of tho best
whaling ground in tho South Pacific, ne
cessary outfits being -obtainable at low
rates ; good vessels always procurable for
tue smpmeni ot tho oil and bone.
I understand from fifteen to twenty
whalers are expected at the Bay of Islands
this year ; and even at the present thne
some 4000 barrels of oil are ready for
The only reason that vessels rendezvous
at theso northern ports is tho saving of
port cuarges, necessities ior wnaicrs oping
innch higher there than here, and their
oil is oftentimes shipped from the Bay of
islands to Auckland in small schooners,
and sometimes transhipped from the latter
port to bydney. fcoino years back these
waters were the lavonte resort of whalers.

Dunedin, Feb. 17, 18G8.
Tho Chamber of Commerce favored the
proposition of Mr. Sise, and the subicct
was brought before the superintendent of
the colony, who under dato of 2dth Feb
ruary mlonns the Chamber that " the gov
ernment will at once take the necessary
steps to relieve whalers calling at the
port of Otago from the payment of port
1 he Dunedin Vice Current of the 5th
March thu3 speaks of the subject:
" We are. indebted to Mr. G. L. Sise
for drawing tbe attention of the Chamber
of Commerce, and, tnroush the Chairman
that of tho Provincial Executive, to the
necessity of admitting to the port of Otairo,
free of nil charges, all ships of whatever
nation engaged in whalinsr operations.
Now that there is a trravintr dock in pro
cess of construction, at an enormous cost.
and patent slips have been for some time
in operation, it is essential some other

proved satisfactorily that this port i3 de

throughout the length and breadth of the

ers will in future be admitted and allowed
to depart, free of all charges, to awaken an
interest in his suggestions. Irrespective
