though It might have been much better
on both sides, Mr. Lawrence Smith,
who was on the programme for an essay,
from some cause was not present, and
the next proceeding, an oration hy Mr.
John Oswald, was called for. Mr. Oswald
took the Hoor, and in a few but very de
cisive words proved to the audience very
clearly the benellts derived from the
unions now existing among nearly every
clas of working men In this country, as
well as In Kngland. A movement was
made at this meeting, to consolidate tho
F. F. F. Debating and Literary Society
with that of the Young Men's Debating
Club, hut whether tho consolidation will
bo effected, Is us yet unknown.
Tho next meeting or the club will take
place on Wednesday night, when the

produces more misery than war," will be
discussed, with Mr. John Hacker, assisted

wrathful word followed another, until

gentleman from Tennessee, being natur

hardly neces-ary to state that these repre--entatives
of two great States made
thing- lively for a few moments, and hi
their endeavors to "pie" each other'

as much for those of the Hullktin'.
