The public meetings and enterpris

cessful, if one or two apparent trifles

their management. First, they lack
publicity. Until the peopla sub

Thirdly. It is absolutely fatal to
the growth of public spirit and spoial
enthusiasm, not to carry out a pro

extent, ia every particular. The
few earnest mna who, by a social, law
well-understood, must invariably start
any movement, become disgusted, if
the weather or the smallness of the
assembly be made te prbtext for
doing nothing, or for changing the
programme. If a speech is announc
ed, it should be delivered.- If the
audience is small,[ the way to get
larger audiences, is to deliver the
speech to those who have come to bear
it, no matter how few, and next tinae
the audience will be larger, for there
will be no danger of disappointment,
if they attend.
Fourthly. A public meeting~ should

thus explains the paternity of the
above popular interrogation. In ad
swer to a correspondent, Powery
Henry Ward Beecher is the author
of the sentence, which has been so
popular. At the time of the Clove

The remark wais so original, and
the joke so good, that everybody

The jury could not resist the conclu
sion that she had been for a o nsider

regular system of obtaininig money by
pretending to "adopt" or take charge
of children, mostly illegitimate, with
a doliber.tto intention of destroying
thoen as soon as possible, in order th.at
a largo part of the muonaey paid with
then should remain to her benefit,
aid, moreover, that, in several in-'
stanaces, she was actually guilty of
murder. She was sentenced to death.
The L~ rd Chief Baron, who tried the
prisonaer, informed the Ihome Secre
tairy that lie could not see any circoni
stance that would juistify an interfer
ence with the carrying out of the sen.
tence. The London 1.,st says that it
was pretty well uinderstood fioam the
firet that the authorities ,eonsidered
the offence of such a fearful character
thaat, in the event of a conviction,
they were determined to make a ter
rible example, in the hope that it
would have the effet of putting ani
ovid to the frightful system of whole
sale and deliberate murder ol infants
which they had reason, from the evi.
deuce that was diselosed, to bolieve
existed in London. There is too
mouch reason to believe that a sin.ilar
atrocious system exists also in some
Amierloan cities. The hanging of
Margaret Waters may prove a whole
