NOTES AND QUERIES.
THAT nOAD AQAIN.
Wc arc pleased to 1cm n from our
daily contemporary that the new
buildings at the Lunatic Asylum arc
advancing satisfactorily. Wc would
add, from our own knowledge, that
the woik has been somewhat delayed
b' the rainy weather, and that the
name cause has transformed that
load into an unnnmablo something.
The improvements at the Lunatic
Asylum were much and urgcutly
needed, and everybody concerned
will be very thankful when the work
is completed. Attention to the road
that leads there is almost as neccs
Bary, and improvement in it would
make a greater number of persons
very thankful. Money was voted
for thoso buildings : 11101103' was al&o
voted fo.' road-making. Money was
scarce : it is now said to be abund
ant. Perhaps lack of labor is the
dilliculty? That can hardly bo so
while there ai c so many prisoners.
NEW, NOT GOOD.
.t Every invention is not an improve
ment: every convenience is not an
-unmixed good. Margarine is an in
vention ; but is it an improvement on
genuine- fresh butter? The telephone
is a convenience, but it is also a
nuisance. Some new-fangled lum
ber wagons have a metal roller at
tached on top of the tail end : wheu
in the wagon one end of the lumber
rests on this roller : the load is dis
charged by revolving the roller with
an iron leaver, until the back end of
the lumber overbalances and touches
the ground ; the wagon is then
moved forward, and the other end
comes down with a crash. This is
an invention and a convenience, but
wc cannot pronounce it an unmixed
good. It saves timo and labor, but
sometimes damages lumber. We
know it is so, for wc have seen it.
Only the other da' wc saw a load of
boards discharged in this way, and
several of them were so- badly frac
tured by the fall that they could be
used for nothing but firewood. "Wc
would rather have our lumber de
livered by the old fashion method :
wo think it better for the lumber.
FORT STREET CHUROH
Was tilled by an eager and expect
nut audience long bcfoic the hour
fixed on for the services. The
Church was lit up with the happy
faces of the congregation, joyfully
returning thanks to their Creator for
His special mercies during the past
The service opened with a volun
tary, from the 3rd organ sonata,
played by Mr. Myron II. Jones,
who ably ofllciatcd ns oiganist
throughout. The Lord's prayer was
mud and the choir sung a response.
His Ex. the Hon. K. M. Daggett in
.1 few briof remarks described the
origin of the custom of celebrating
Thanksgiving Day, tracing it over n
period of two centuries and a half
to its substitution for the annual
day of fasting, humiliation and
'prayer, originally instituted by the
Puritan Fathers. He then read
President Arthur's Proclamation.
The choir then Biing the anthem,
"Thou visitcst the earth and watcr
cst it." Mr. Cruzait then read an
appropriate Scripture lesson, which
was followed by "My country, 'tis
of thee," sung by the choir and
congregation. Dr. Damon then
offered up a prayer, and tho choir
sung a response. After which tho
choir and Congregation sung tho
following hymn, to the tune of
"Fiom Greenland's icy Mountains" :
Written for the occimton hg Jilt KsctUencu lion,
Jl, M. DuaS'U, American MlnMtr llttUltnt.
O Thou who rent the waters and sot they

Mr. Cittzan then preached an elo
quent and impressive sermon from
tho text, "The Lord hath not dealt
so with any nation." lie showed
what mercies tho people of the
United States had, as a nation, to
be thankful for. How, between the
30th and GOth parallels of 1101 th lat
itude the great nations of the earth,
past and present, were to be found.
Hcic America was to be found in its
greatest extent. How it was dis
covered and rc-discovcrcd, settled
and lc-scttlcd, till finally the best
possible founders of a great nation
came to its shores the Pilgiim
Fathers. He dwelt at length on the
resources" and capabilities of the
States, quoting numerous statistics
and prophesying even greater things
of America than had ever yet been
known, lie finished by stating that
the life of any nation was establish
ed in lightcousness, and that hcic in
Hawaii wc had need to see to it. It
was not our plantations, our com
moicc, our gatling guns, or our
army that would make us strong,
but tho moral force of our lightcous
ness. Tho choir then sang tho an
them, "O clap your hands, all yc
people," and the benediction was
pronounced. The congregation rc-
maincd standing, by request, while
Their Majesties went out, preceded
by Mr. Daggett, and followed by
Messis. Gibson and Dominis.

ing: Soprani, Mrs. J. II. Hanford.

Mackintosh from the 33rd Psalm,
12th verse, "Blessed is the nntion
whoso God is the Lord; and the
people whom he hath chosen for his
own inheritance." A fair congrega
tion, as, being St. Andrews' Day,
tho scholars from St. Andrews'
Priory, and the Bishop's College
School were present and they filled
up the church. Tho church was
