His Honor Justice llickcrton had
a narrow escape from having a pair

named Isaac, n drayman in tho em

The alitor of tho Saturday Press,
being called to make a few "re

menced by saying, "Ladies and

under the impression ho wns at a

ladies present nt tho banquet. Per

bottom of his glasses, ostentatiously

At n meeting of temperance
women an old lady got up to give
her experience. " I know something
of the evils of rum," she said; "I
have buried three husbands, and all
were hard drinkers. But I am glad
to say," she continued, "that I
didn't fight with them. As soon as
I found they would drink I got them
to insure their lives heavily, and let
them go ahead. Ah, me 1 each ono
of them died from tho effects of
liquor, but, thanks to 'a kind Pro

Mr. Lowell, the American Minis

ing: " Please toll my friends in the
United States that I am not likely to
commit such n silly act of pctttsh

because tho Chief Magistrate of the
opposite political faith has been
elected. I presume my successor
will be appointed and confirmed in
duo season, and when he arrives
here I hope to have tho honor of
welcoming him and affording him
whatever services may bo in my
power to make tho beginning of his
duties easy and agreeable."
Siioiitly before nine o'clock this
morning, as expressman No. 80 was
loading his carriage with gas piping
nt Hopper's, the horse got frightened
and dashed across the road into a
window of tho blacksmith's shop,
breaking the sash and glass, also
throwing out a little Chincso boy
who was in the carriage. The horse
wheeled round and started up Fort
street, mado a turn for Hackfcld &
Co.'s gateway, but tho piping canio
into collision with a heavy dray,
broke tho shafts and turned over tho
carriage, freeing tho horse. It ran
through Hackf old's yard on to Quccu
street, where it was eventually stop
ped. No one was hurt.
The ladies in charge of the fair
were very busy at the Y. M. C. A.
Hall this morning. On entering down
stairs will bo found tho refreshment
department, presided over by a corps
of ladies peerless in that special line.
Reaching tho top of tho stairs, tho
eye will at once catch a very pretty
scene. The various tables are ar
ranged round tho room, and contain
some of tho most beautiful tilings wo
ever saw. No pains have been
spared to make a success of this
fair. It opened at 3 o'clock, and
judging by tho attendance every
thing 'will be sold before tho closing
hour com.es round. In tho secre
tary's room down stairs Mr. T. R.
Walker will be found exhibiting
panoramic scenes, at a low admis

I will now fulfil my promiso of
telling about tho shops doiug the
principal part of the business in that
pait of tho empire where I am en
joying a brief visit.
Thcro arc many places for tho in
habitants to get good clothes to wear
at the Christmas festivities, and
ai tides of apparel and adornment to
make presents of. Gentlemen who
want fine clothes made to order, and
parents wu'd delight to sec their boys
in elegant and tasteful suits, go to
tho shop of Mr. II. S. Tregloan,
tailor, at the corner of Fort nnd
Hotel streets. His customers are
always suited to their heart's desire,
and his fits compel unmeasured
praise, no also keeps a full stock
of gentlemen's furnishing goods, so
that a gentleman may enter his placo
as a full-blown specimen of shabby
gentility, nnd go forth arrayed like a
figure in a fashion plate.
Other shops'tlmt keep gentlemen's
clothes and outfits nro those of
Messrs. B. F. Fillers & Co., Fort
street; Mr. N. S, Sachs, and tho
Temple of Fashion, on the same
thoroughfare, and Messrs. Golsalves
& Co., Hotel street. Thcso all
attract largo numbers of customers
at this season, and they make each a
flue showing of goods. Tho same'
shops arc tho ones mostly frequented
by ladies, also tho shop of Mr. J. T.
Wtttcrhouse, Fort street. Tho
'i -1 .iU'JiJiXtMsJjM'ti. ilS SCJA ' .-lAitoVin8irf
ladies tako great delight in looking
over the vast array of dry and fancy
goods in each of these shops, and
the clciks nro very spry in showing
tliu goods and doing up tho innumer
able paiccls. Mrs. A. M. Mollis,
who has rooms on the premises of
Mr. Sachs, is tho leading drcssMnakcr
and milliner of the place, nnd is very
highly esteemed by all the ladies.
She is indeed the architect of ladies'
fashion for this part of tho empire.
No one is properly dressed unless
satisfactorily shod, and no one can
bo happy with pi city shoos unless
they fit well. Thcro is no need for
anyone here to go about with ugly or
uncomfortable clouts on their feet,
for thcro arc two first-class shoe
makers who givo fits to their cus
tomers at all times. Ono is Mr. L.
Adlcr, on Nuuanu street, and tho
other Chr. Gcrtz, Fort street. They
are whole-soled followers of good
Saint Crispin, and no one can claim
to be of good understanding until
he has been to cither of their shops.

WHAT TO DO WITH OUR BOYS.
Editok Bulletin : Tho Anglican
Church Chronicle asks, " What are
wc going to do with our boys?" That's
a good question, and not very diffi
cult to answer. Wo are going to
do with them just what wo ought
not, because wo arc going to put
them into places for which naluro"
never designed them. Wc arc going
to make lawyers, doctors, and par
sons of as many as possible many
more than the country will ever find
use for. Others wo a'ro going to
place behind the counter to measure
ribbon and lace, which is properly
gills' vjprk. Some wc arc going to
manufacture into merchants, of
which wc already have a plethora.
Of course, a few of the lower grades
must become mechanics, so as to
doubly glut an overstocked market.
And wc certainly arc going to pile
all wc possibly can into government
billets, because the houis arc short,
the work light, and pay good ; and
you may depend upon it wc shall
not complain of the largeness of the
items in tho Appropriation Bill for
their valuable "services I You may
be equally suro that wo arc not
going to tcacli our boys to follow a
plow or handle a spade. It is
farthest from our thoughts that they
should till the cartli and live by tho
fruits of the .field. Ah, no. This is
the sphere of plebeians and the occu
pation of serfs, and we hro a long
chalk above such animals. Wo
would rather our boys should wear
boiled shuts and stand-up collars,
and follow some gentlemanly call
ing, even if they starve in it, than
consent to their acquiring compe
tence and independence by such
menial employment as plowing and
planting. No doubt, wo aro n lot of
fools, or wo should reverse the order
of things, for wo cannot deny that
tho cultivation of tho soil is the most
healthful and invigorating occupation
in tho world, ns well as tho most
rational. But, never mind, it is not
genteel, and as wc arc n genteel set
wc mean to maintain our gentility!
