Tam Montreal Herald describes a horrible
scene which was recently witnessed in Can
ada. The court-house and prison at St.
' Sebolastique caught fire, the flames spread
' Iif with great rapidity. The prison con
.t.mned sin prisoners--three men and three
.women. The men were with difficulty res
" cued. The women could not be reached.
One of them appeared at a window and
-piteously implored " Mon Dieu, suavez
nout! saavez noes l " To relieve her- was
pow beyond the power of man. Men, wo
rien, and children who were spectators of
this scene fell on their knees, praying the
Almighty to pity her.
•- aOn the topmost step of a fragile ladder
were the feet of the Rev. Mr. Barnabe,,
with hands clasping the iron bars, implor
:i'.l t.epoorcreature to prepare to met her
God. Here, at the risk of his life, he gate
the dying creature the last consolation of
his Church. Ere it was completed the
black smoke became red, and in it the poor
girlfell back to be neither heard nor seen
again. Her mother and sister were vic
time with her, but neither of them were
, oEeli abesld from the outaide,; suffoation,
no doubt, came early over them. These
three women had been confined for dsstroy
ings newly-born infant.
A LrrrLo Bri oI>JsTonv.-By reference,
bys~the Troy Timee, to the Constitutions
of New York New Hampshire, Massachu
setts, New Jersey, -Yfrginik, Maryland,
North Carolina, formed before the date of
the Constitution of the VUnited States and
in force at its adoption, and %sbo the Con
stitutions of Georgia and Pennsylvania,
formed sogt fthbrrards, it a'pears that in
respect to the qualification of ýthe electors
.fet-the most numerous branches of the
State Legislatures, there was no distinc
tion on account of oolor in tho.se nine
States. Connecticut and Rhode Island
being under the old royal charters, could
have none. South Carolina, by its Con
stitution of 1776, allowed negroes to vo te,
but in 17T8 the privilage was restricted to
every "white man," etc. In Delaware by
ScA of February 3, .1787,, emmancipated
"'la+i and their issue were debarred "the
privilage of voting at elections or being
elected;" and even this seems to have
been a violation of the letter of the Con
stitution ofthe State.. It is Well known,
among intelligent men, that the practice of
admitting free men of color to vote obtain
ed universally at first among all of the orig
inal "old thirteen." In Virginia, negroes
voted side by side with white men until

called the Gregorian style, because it was
introduced by Pope Greory, who,. t
Rome, introduced it as early th6 yer
1582, when the vernal equinox fell on the
llth instead of the 21st, and ten days were
dropped. The 'Iom ans added the day on
leap-year on the 6th of the calends of March
making two-sixths, or bi sextfs, and bene
the expreshion Bissextiýle veasr, or leap-year.
A leap year is the yeax tha.t divides evenly
by four, and conseqtently, the present
year is a leap-year, when -ny ladies feel
so disposed have, according to an old say

England, until 1752, we b agun the year at

January and Lady-Day, our writers used
to put two dates thus, FebraarT 7, 7o the
bottom date being that froi January the
