There is no occasion for any excitement or bud blood over the controversy. It Is inu that docs not admit of argument. Hospitals nro nccovmrj baseball is not. Ei en if they occupkd equal footing, tho Hospital has tho aihantago of possession. Hut there is no such equality. Civlllzn tion cannot exist without these charitable institutions. Hospitals, nsylumsand other Louses of mercy and ministration are Hie debt of society to tho poor and iriindless. They aro debts which must be paid. Ikiscbull Is a mere pastime, with out which tho world could get on quite pleaantly. It seems to us qulto clear, therefore, that tho only question to bede i idcel is one of fact. It would bo inhuman nml disgraceful to crmlt tl.o location near the hospital of nnj thing calculated to liarm or dlstres tho sufferers within its wall". Wo nro quite, suro that tho lm'ctall jicoplo themselves would not w I'll to do this. Thcro remain, then, only tho question of fact.

A butchery of hoars and wild gamo was prepares! theroto recall to tho eyes of the victor the exploits of that battle.
