' A LESSON.
The jocularity of the dally 'Tiscr
is always ponderous, and is fre
quently based on a misinterpretation
of 'words, but we have seldom seen
a truer "give away" of their invinci
ble ignorance than in their yester
day's sub-lcadcr. To their be
fogged minds "cxhaltcd journnlibin"
nnd "pure literature" arc "almost
synonymous." It will, therefore,
be a matter of'somo information to
them that journalism and literature
arc two distinct things. Police court
rcports,f8liipping news, local items,
all these belong to journalism, but
not to literature.
Tho terra 'pure," when applied
to literature, mathematics, etc., js
understood by tho educated and
wise to mean "unmixed with any
thing olse." Only a prurient and'
untutored intellect could twist it in
to" such a construction as our con
temporary indulged in.
GRASS ON THE STREETS.
A friend of ours said yesterday :
"I scc'you approve of the grass be
ing taken off the side-walks."
"Yes," wo replied, " certainly. "
"Well," he said, "I don't agree
with you. '.The grass keeps the foot
path from getting muddy in wet
weather, and in dry weather it holds
the sojl together nnd prevents it
from being blown about, and the
way tljcsc Chinamen arc doing their
work now makes it worse, as they
actually dig tile grass nnd leave
holes ready to accumulate water in."
These views seemed to us worthy of
being presented to the public, and
here they are.

It is well to once more bring our
readers' attention to these two facts:
1st, that Chinese New Year will be
celebrated next week, and 2nd, that
chickens arc in great demand at that
time. By bearing1 these two fncts in
mind and keeping a strict watch on
the hen-coops much annoyance will
be obviated. '

Kahalcaahu, for many years district

owing to his old age and general

was respected by all who knew him,

Tiii:mi:ni)OUs numbers of ship
wrecks have been reported off the
English coasts during tho last three
months. It seems that the number
of wrecks all over the world has
been much greater than customary
even at. this season. Wc have re
ceived, by courtesy of Capt, Mc
lntyrc, an account of the finding of
the body of Capt. Rhodes, of the
Fiona, wrecked in last December.
This makes 18 bodies recovered out
of 27 lost. In the same paper nre
notices of no less than
London Scientific Letter in the
Mclbourn .litxtralattia)), says: I
dare say most of your readers have
already seen Professor Thompson's
letter in The Timet describing the
trial trip of n screw launch worked
by an electro-motor, the current for
which was supplied by Sellon-Volck-mar
storage batteries. The launch
is 2(ift. long, and draws about 2ft."
of water, and is very properly christ
ened "Electricity." Shu carries -15
storage bntterics, which can supply
four-horse power for about six hours..
The bpeccl attained by this, tho first
genuine electric ship on record, was
about eight knots an hour against
tho tide, carrying 12 persons. Pro
fessor Thompson has since published
a fuller account of the construction
of his "Electric Launch1' in Nature,
accompanied by drawings and
sketches. Ho therein concluded by,
sayiii(r: "Of tlic practical succes's
of this little craft there can be no
question. Of its economy it is pre
mature to speak. It is, however,
greatly in favour of electric naviga
tion that such machinery may be
both lighter ami more compact than
that of steam engines of 'corrcspond
i big power, that tho noisq nnd vibra
tion arc very greatly reduced, and
that lastly, there, is a c6uipleto,ub-

which appears to bo inseparable from
Electrical and physical appliances
continue to increase. Siemens has
demonstrated the possibility of melt
ing steel by elccli icily. s A number
of broken pieces were put in a suit

tiled lid to it, the two currents of the
electro-motor terminating in the .up
per and lower parts of the crucible
In a quarter of an hour the entire
inass.of broken steel was healed and
liquefied without a single bubble.'
The cost of fuel employed to produce
the electricity was much lcs than
would httvo been lcqitircd to directly
melt the metal. The experiment

created hutch interest. No.nattlralist'
ever susjected any of the lizards

legated to the serpent division of the

this abnormal beast) all the machin

us of it long ago. One of them
