ThiO'Nell and Edwards families live
neighbors in Temperanceville, though
they dora seem to be as neighborly as
they should be. Mrs. O'Neil says the
FAwards fatally haves spite , at her, and
take every opportunity to annoy 'and
Niex her. The latest phase" of this spirit,
in Mrs, Edwards is manifested in a prac
tice, which has been going on until it is
unbearable, of throwing dirty sloppy
water and refuse. on the front steps of
the O'Neil mansion. Mrs. O'Neil yes

relation to the matter, and , that official

The late Mr.. Buckle, in hie "Introdue-
ion to the History of Civilization in
England," somewhat startled the world
by announcing a theory of average which
he applied to all human actions, and from
which he argued that we might forecast
the future. It was philosophy teaching
by statistics. In such a space of tune
there would be so many forgeries, ar sons, '
murders. Not only this, but the mur
ders would repeat themselves in the man
ner of their perpetration; just the same
number would be by poison, by the pis
tol, by thebludgeon, &c. If in any three
months of 1829, six sons ha& killedSheir
fathers, the like number of cases of par—
ricide, with a certain increase ror the in
crease of population, would occur in the - •
same three months of 1850. We were
under the operation of a law seemingly
beyond our control or recognition.
This extraordinary theory has Seem
ingly just received a striking confirms
tion in the Registrar General's report of -
accidents in the streets of London. For
many years past it has been observed
that for the first nineteen weeks of the
year just seventy-four 'persons have been
killed by being run over •in the public
thoroughfares. It was therefore expected,
from the unfailing law of average, that 2
the same number would be killed for the
first nineteen weeks in 1869. Ori the Bth
day of May, after the lapse of eighteen •
weeks, the number . of fatal accidents of
this kind should have been seventy, but
it fell four short of that number. Obvi- •
misty, then the law of average must fall, '
or the accidents for the week ending- the
15th of May must be doubleda: Curiously
enough for the seven days, -from - the Bth
to the 15th, eight persons were, actually
killed Instead of four, and thus the sev
enty-four victims demanded by the Merci
less arithmetic were fully made up.i i
This• was certainly
. odd... The educ
tion from it would seem to be that when
accidents' or crimes" are in arrear, the
public should be notified, in order that::
by increased caution or vigilance, the ex
pected disasters may bq avoided. We ,
take precautionary measures against un
peril which we can confidently an
ticipate; we give additional props to'
building which are to undergo an unac
customed strain, an dotible police
force when immense crowds ofi'people
.are to be brought together. Should there
not also be redoubled care and watch,
tulnesss against periods when the law of
average teaches us will be more than or

Tun WOESING PEOPLE.—The Ger- -
