sessed at fourteen and a half million dot

A letter was, also read from , Dr. Past,
expressing great fears for the success of
the efforts now making to obtain the bal
lot for women, on account of ,tendencies
which, t he says, are manifesting
themselves in certain 'sections of the
country among the leader:l/, to , place
the movement in antagonism to Christ
and Christian religion. This obarge, im
plied though it is, rather than distinctly
expressed, was refuted by Mrs. Hayard,
the presid ing officer of the meeting, who
said no such effort was beingmade: that
the movement was in' conformity with
the teachings Of. Christ, who taught the
anpremaay of rightoyer might, and ad-
Vacated the same laws for females as for:
males. She said they had nothing to du
with the individual opiniond of those
who espoused their , cauee, an d i the les.
sons of the past taught them not to re
ject the aid , of publicans and sinners.
While doctors of lawand divinity were
unable to decide upon the purity of their

Mrssns.Erorrous GAza/r.s: The in
vention of Mr. Francis Armstrong for
removing the impurities in the water of,
steam boilers, and thus preventing the
incrusting of the plates, has been attach
ed to the boilers in use in the, House of
Refuge f and it affords me pleasure to
state that'Mr. Armstrong's invention has
fully accomplished the object intended;
the sediment is. entirely removed, and
the - plates In the bottom of the boiler ap
pear as clean as it they had been careful
ly polished; while the water from the
condense steanr is free' from all im
The principle of the improvement lays
in the production of a vortex in the water
in each boiler, the action of which draws
floating substances, to the focus and db. :
charges them, leaving,-the water clear
and pure: Unlike other inventions this
is accomplished without agitation of the
surface of the water in the boiler—when
the surface water is agitated the cleans
ing process can only be partial, while Mr.
A's invention dpeithe work thoroughly
and well. The invention also has ,the
merit of being applied to boilers easily
and with but little expense.
Mr. Armstrong is an Miglneer bf great i.
practical ability, an excellent draughts--::
man, and his representations may, - be
fully relied upon. ' •
