It is very strange that, if the
Board of Health have met ucven
times since the 'Jltli of May, i.e.
about once every two weeks, mem
bers should have known nothing of
it. AVc are glad, however, to find
that our question lias been answered
in so tatisfactory a way. It is pleas
ant to be able to record that the
Board now does its business. But
we arc fltill inclined to think that
there must have been some sting in
the arrow of truth; that it went home,
to its mark. Otherwise, why was
tho answer not published until the
Board had been convened for the
eighth time ? and why this journal
istic lugu about "detraction by
false insinuations in the
Lands of the unscrupulous and
vicious" ? We inform our daily
contemporary that we do not desire
to have at any time " a little apparent
liasis " or "a specious plausible
iiosa," in any part of our paper.
Ve shall, at all timet, speak tho
truth to the best of our knowledge
and spare no effort in finding out the
truth for the benefit of our readers.
And we shall not heiitate to boldly
state, our opinion on anything that is
going wrong and for the " false in
binnations," we thatl leave those
for our contemporary.

Henry Cornwell vs. Board of Edu
cation. Air. A. .s. ilartwclland Mr.
Hutch for plaintiff; ilis Ex. the Attorney-General,
Mr. E. Preston, for
rhu Board of Education. This was
a suit to recover damages Ibr'beiug
deprived of certain lands which,
along with other lands, were sold at
a public sale held by order of the
Board, which lands were subsequent
ly found not to be tho property of
the. Board, but to belong to the Es
tate of the late Mochonua. Docu
ments and maps having been put in,
and the witnesses for the plaintiff
heard, the Attoruey-f Jeneral moved
for a non-suit on the grounds : 1st,
that plaintiff himself knew the mini
iter of acres and he -should have
nskcd to have contract, rescinded ;
t.ud, 2nd, that there was no war
ranty. Mr. Hartwell urged that to
" give in fee simple" implies a war
ranty, and quoted a number of Am
erican cases in support of his nigu
incnt. Mr. Preston excepted to This
ruling. After calling tho Secretary
of the Education Board, Mr. Pres
ton closed his case and asked the
Court to direct the jury to lind a
verdict for the defendant. This the
Court declined to do. and without
leaving the room the jury returned a
verdict for the plaintifl', having been
directed to do so by the Court.
Damages S7,f)00. Mr. Preston ex

Sadness and Joy.
We felt sad yesterday very sad
sadder than wo wish to feel again.
This feeling of sadness suddenly
seized us at 8 o'clock in the morn
ing and held us in thraldom until 5
in the evening. Within ten minutes
after the first appearance of the
" trouble " every member of our
staff had caught the contagion, some
being badly distressed, whilst others
exhibited a milder form of the same
feeling; even our usually thought
less and light-hearted deal dropped
his under lip and looked dejected.
This melancholy, down-cast state
of mind was produced by an abrupt
message from a subscriber, ordei ing
the "stoppage" of his Daily Bull
etin. The message ran thus :
' Stop my Bollktin right away ; 1
don't waiit it to be left at my shop
any more." At first we were startled,
then alarmed, and finally relapsed
into a condition of indescribable de
pression. The consideration of our pwn
pecuniary loss didn't for one mo
ment occupy our thoughts ; for fifty
cents a mouth, or two cents a day,
wouldn't very materially affect our
treasury. Not that we are rich. Oh,
no! If we, were we should locomote
I)1 the aid of a horse and buggy,
and go occasionally to the Coast in
the big steamers. .
Bui our first thought was con
cerning the poor gentleman's ex
treme poverty. His circumstances
had become so btraitened that he
could no longer afford to pay two
cents an issue for the Bii.i.ktis'; and
this, too, i.inid all the many advan
tages of the Reciprocity Treaty.
This thought aroused our commiser
ation, and in an excited condition of
fellow-feeling we hastily, but charit
ably, resolved that the poor gentle
man should have the Bullktin,
daily, without the two cents in ex
change. No sooner had w e made this re
solve than a second thought entered
our mind, and we began to reflect
that may bo we were mistaken as to
the. gentleman's indigence, that per
haps he was not atllietcd with short
ness of funds, but that he had be
come antagonistic to the Bvlletin
and intended by withdrawing his
support to starve tho poor little
tiling and cause it to die an untimely
death. The more and longei we re
flected the deeper and stronger the
comietion grew that our second
thought was the true one, and as a
consequence we became sad and
Again and again we bravely strug
gled to shake off this feeling; but
all in vain : it would cling to us, like
limpets to a rock. All day long we
moved around moping and drooping
and sighing, with the deep-rooted
conviction that a gentleman hail
made a combination njjaiust us and
i that we were doomed to decadence
and premature extinction.
In this dejected state we wcro
about shutting up shop for tho day,
when our newsboy approached and
said, "I shall waiit nine more Bull
etins to morrow." What, Bobbie,
what do you want? What are you
going to do with nine more Bullet
ins? Going to lay up a stock for
kite-making when kite season comes?
Can't afford it. Don't you know
that the Bulletin' is an unfortunate
sheet? Aren't yon aware that we.
have this day lout a prominent sub
scriber, from whom wo 'have "been
regularly receiving fifty cents a
month for twenty-six Daily Bull
etins, and that the aforesaid promi
nent subscriber has combined to kill
the Bulletin? No, no, Bobbie, wo
can't afford to be generous any
longer. You had better try the big
shop over the way : they have piles
of old dead dailies there that nobody
would take because of their contain
ing so much misrepresentation. Not
only so, but they arc so light with
"Premiers" and "Excellencies" that
they will fly high up when there is
not wind enough to lilt the Bull
etin from the ground: that's the
paper for kites. "Avast heaving!"
ejaculated Bobbie, "I don't under
stand all that talk ; perhaps when 1
become an editor I shall know all
about it. I have heard my father
tell about one Irishman surrounding
three Frenchmen, but I never heard
of one man combining before. All
I know is, that I have nine new
names on my list, and theysaid I
must be sure to bring them the
Daily Bulletin to-nionow morning,
and every morning right along after
wards, and that's why I want nine
more than before."
It is easier for any one to imagine
than it is for us to describe the sud
den revulsion of our feelings. If
ever a "change came over the spirit"
of any dream a change certainly
came over the condition of our mind.
Rejoicing took the. place of sadness ;
sorrow was superseded by felicity ;
brilliant sunshine succeeded the
black and threatening clouds. Lost,
one ; found, nine ; net gain, eight.
In this joyful state we first of all
determined never again to allow our
calm to he milled by so small a mat
ter as tho loss of an old subscriber,
being sure that many new ones
would come to attend his funeral.
Next we celebrated our grateful
emotions by inviting all hands to a
unnkof Marchant s refreshing soda.
Then we betook ourselves to our
nightly couch, fell into peaceful
slumbers, and passed the night in
solacing dreams of matchless pros
perity and future greatness.
