It wo were ever so unfortunate as
to become one of the " powers that
be," that Is to say, u Cabinet
Minister, and wo hail a personal
vneiny whom we wished to punish ;
we know just what we would do
-with the fellow we'd make him
President of the Board of Health.
It' in time, the duties and responsi
bilities, real or fancied, that pertain
to that ofllec, did not sulllce to fill
to overflowing his cup of alllietion,
wo don't know what would. We
were Bet into this train of reflection
yesterday morning in our walk along
King street, by observing in close
proximity to tho sidewalk, an omin
ous looking wooden cross with some
hieroglyphics inscribed thereon. On
closer inspection, the cross was
iound to surmount a large pile of
street sweepings, and its segment
bore this legend,
"Sacred to the
memory of the
President of the
Board of Health." Now the sapient
perpetrator of this supposed joke
intended thereby to signify, that the
streets needed sweeping, and that
the President of the Board of Health
ought to have had it done; that
moreover he, and he alone, would
be held responsible for all the dire
diseases and ailments (including
coughs and colds) that will probably
result from its not having been done.
And so, throughout the entire cata
logue of nuisances, from the smells
of Chiuatown to the impure condi
tion of the water iu the Government
pipes to say nothing of the fearful
responsibility if n pest ship arrives
it must bo a peculiar temperament
that would prompt its possessor to
aspire to bo President of the Board
Yesterday morning there was n
general inquiry in town as to the
meaning of tho unusual display of
bunting, more, particularly on Con
sular flagstaffs ; and the reply was,
that it was the anniversary of the
taking of the Bastille, and a French
national holiday. To the student of
ldstory, it is very clear what is
meant: but the general newspaper
reader may not be posted as to the
facts. Tho Bastille was a famous
etonc structure in Paris, built iu
1382 no less than five hundred
years ago. It was for many years
used as a prison by some of the
tyrant Kings of France, and as Mich
became infamous on account of the
cruelties committed within its walls.
On the Mth of Jul', 1780, during
the French Revolution which banish
ed the Bouibons, the Parisians at-
".tacked tho Bastillo, which after a
Btout resistance was captured and
razed to the ground. Only seven
j prisoners however wore found in it.
