"We have neither noticed nor heard
nny complaints about the roads late
ly, so the Supervisor must be happy.
This is partly due, however, to the
dry weather, which makes even our
softest roads passable and all in fair
condition to travel over, except for
the dust. But a great deal of it, we
think, is due to the eompaiison
which can be drawn between the
present condition of the lower end
of Fort street and its condition some
two or three months back. Now, it
is the plcasantest and easiest road in
the city to travel over in a carriage,
and the good plank sidewalk makes
it as pleasant for pedestrians.
We arc glad to sec that this policy
of making good sidewalks is being
continued. It has been a matter of
reproach to the reputation for civi
lization of this country that there
wasn't a decent road or footpath in
it, ' but we think that all cause for
! that reproach will bo shortly taken

Ox "Wednesday night those who
were at the wharf, when the Swift
surc's launch pushed off, noticed a
sailor running down to gut on board.
He jumped off the wharf and swam
after tho boat, and the ofllccr in
charge seeing this stopped her. A
shore boat pulled off to help him on
board, but he refused assistance;
two of his mates onboard the launch
jumped over to help him. However,
he gained the boat without any help.

The Geological history of the
"Wc have no evidence of these
islands having any other origin than
a volcanic one. Some writers have
written about beds of conglomerate
found here, but on examination I
find that these are a mere re-easting
of the products of the volcanoes. It
is not an uncommon thing to find
volcanoes in the sea. Graham Island,
which appeared amongst, and after
wards disappeared from, the Lipari
Islands in the Mediterranean, was
the product of a submarine volcano.
A shoal still marks the spot where it
It is the common belief here that
the islands were foimed in succes
sion, beginning at the north-west
and coming down to the south-east.
I do not think so, as Hawaii islaigcr
than any of the others, and yet I do
not find traces of any newer or older
classes of rocks on it than on any of
the others, or on any of the others
than it. They arc all most probably
of the same age.
There are two types of volcanoes,
the Vesuvian type and tho Strom
bolian type. Tho first fires out an
eruption like a gun ; in the second
the action is quiet, and resembles
so much water rising in the crater
nnd then receding. Kilauca and
Mnuiuv Loa belong to the latter type.
The lecturer then went on to
speak of coral formations the fringe
reef, the barrier reef, and the atoll
or annular coral island. Ho showed
by n diagram how the formation of
the ring-shaped atoll was accounted
for by the theory that it marked tho
presence- of a submerged island.
The island gradually went down,
and as it went down tho coral ani
mals slowly built their structures
hitdicr and higher, to keep their
place near tho surface of tho water
until finally nothing was left but the
circular reef which marked tho
former outline of the island. Giadu
ally the action of tho winds and
waves built up on this, saud, drift,

instead of there being a depression
there had been an elevation of about
It) feet or so since the first forma
tion of coral reef here.

-As 1 predicted in my last tho

izes the couucclion of this coloiry,
by rail, with the Victorian province,
passed through Parliament with Hy

measure those persons interested
have been using active measures lo
cauc tho government to deviate
from their intention of making this
line through Callington, and arc
strenuously advocating the Strathal
byn route. Although engineers show
that the proposed deviation would
save the colony about five-thousand
dollars in construction alone, yet
the cabinet seem to bo inexorable.

Sir "William Jcrvois, who has been
our Govcrnor-in -Chief for 5 years,
has been promoted to New Zealand.
His Excellency was very popular
here: his simplicity of manner, gen
tlemanly bearing, coupled with the
fact of his being a civil engineer of
very high standing, won for him
golden opinions, and it is not sur
prising that thousands should have
assembled to cheer him on his de
parture. During his term of ad
ministration here Sir "William began
business on the lower Murray toy
purchasing and stocking a sheep
run. This fact ma' cause him to
visit our shores occasionally, seeing
that he has an undoubted interest in
the progress of this province. His
last public act was to make a hand

Curious Scene In A Church.
A curious and comical turn wns

on Monday morning Feb. 12. Tho
Rev. Mr. Bath gave a sermon beat
ing on the disgraceful scenes at the
stranded ship Bcrengarin, and
dilated on drinking, gambling, and
all sins of the like kind, at the con
clusion of which, nnd before he hnd
time to sit clown, Mr. Ducker the
well known auctioneer of this town,
and formerly Mayor for two years,
jumped up from tho body of tho
church, nnd commenced in a long
speech to combat the views held by
tho Rev. Mr Bath, and said before
ministers lectured their congrega
tions there should be more unanimity
among themselves, and it was their
own duty to put down gambling in
connection with their church, by
which ho meant raflling at bazaar?.
Tho Rev. gentleman stood during
the time this homily was being en
forced ou his attention, and meekly
replied on its termination, "thank
you Mr. Ducker." World.
