Mr. Morris, - supervisor of the Canal, to state that since

The editor of the Spirit of the Age won't back
out from the position he has taken on the temperance

coor.latie, that if they met yesterday, FOSTER is as dead
as iikeron this morning, But, perhaps, Barker has
goner to Camp Meeting, and thus Foster will be per

Wrong again: "the name of the other man" wits
neither Clow, Sleight nor Slough, but Sleigh, as
printed iu the other city papers. Another great blon

Germane—the name of the unfortunate Ryan is suffi

of ail who saw him. His hair grew with surprising
rapidity over his entire body and face, giving him
whiskers and beard, as luxuriant as an:adult. His bo-

How sweet are the effects of kindness? How balmy
the influence of that regard which dwells around our

an eternal spring. It matters not if the world is cold, .

all that our own hearts claim.
