We nrmly believe this Cuti cura will permanently cure this very severe case of leprosy, as it hs done many others. tive to the procedure of the Governor and Gounoil, and so as to exclude as faros possible every other form of the issue. The Governor states the case in his own way. He asks whether, under certain circumstances which he assumes, a certain course can bs legally taken. It is possible to answer this question affirmatively without declaring that another course would not also be consistent with the law. These questions, on the whole, seem ingeniously devised, not to ascertain whether the Governor and Gounoil anight not have done substantial justice under the law, but whether they have not kept within the forms of law while doing substantial injustice. They are not asked in the right spirit. drsd in 1878. Notwithstanding this wholesale slaughter, the animals appeared' in even in creased numbers last year, and rewards were again offered, with the result that, np to the closing of the lists for the season, head money was paid on 84,386 hamsters, or 3.C11 more than in the previous year. It is calculated that each female produces ten young ones per an num, sothat, assuming half of those. slaugh tered to have been females, those killed last year would have produced an additional progeny of nearly 400,000, being at the rate of 15,005 to every square mile of land in the district.

Few bank failures have had more important and melancholy results than the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank, which occurred about fifteen months ago. Some idea of the char acter and extent of this disaster maybe gained from the report of the liquidators of the bank reoently submitted to the shareholders. 'When the liquidators began their work, October 22, 1878, the total liabilities of the bank were about 04,000,000 and the assets about $38,000,000, leaving a deficiency of about $26,000,000. For this amount eaoh shareholder was jointly and severally liable to the full extent of his property. Though he had but a single share and though his title was that of a mere trustee without benefit to him self, he could be compelled not only to pay his proportion of the bank's debts but to give all he had to make up the deficiency of fellow shareholders who were nnable to respond. The liquidators, as was their duty, have held the shareholders to their responsibility, and the result has been widespread financial ruin. From the assets so far about $24,000,000 have been realized. November 13, 1S78, the shareholders were assessed pro rata $500 for every $100 of stock or, $21,000,000 on the outstanding capital of $4,200,000. This first assessment alone exhausted the means of many of the shareholders, and at the time the report was made up it had only yielded $10, 600,000. In March, 1879, a second assess ment was, therefore, laid on the shareholders still solvent of $2,250 per $100, amounting altogether to $39,000,000. This assessment has produced $11,500,000, making altogether about $22,000,000 to be added to the $24,000, 000 collected from the bank's assets, or $46, 000,000 toward paying the $64,000,000 of debts. Preferred creditors took $8,000,000 of the money, and the expenses of the liqui dation $500,000 more. The general creditors have been paid $37,000,000, or two-thirds the amount of their claims, leaving about $18, 500,000 still to be provided for, without counting interest. The uncollected assets of the tank will, it is thought, produce $14, 000,000, leaving $4,500,000 and the interest to be contributed by 2C9 shareholders out of the original 1,810, the other 1,550 having been completely ruined by the two calls al ready made. The liquidators expect to make another dividend of 9 per cent, to the credi tors very soon. It must be admitted that they have done their very disagreeable and ruinous work promptly and thoroughly. What the failure of the Oity of Glasgow Bank meant to many is vividly shown by the action Qt 599 of the shareholders who were nnable to meet the first call made upon them. They applied for a discharge of their obliga tions on making a complete surrender of their estates. Most of them also offered, with the assistance of friends, to pay the value of their estates, on being allowed to retain the same. Before accepting these offers a statement was required, verified by a declaration before a Justice of the Peace, according to a printed form, in which, in reply to a series of queries, information of the most minute character was demanded from the persons liable, as to their means and estate, and their expenditure since the stoppage of the bank. The information thus supplied was subjected to careful exami nation, and after the basis of an arrangement had been adjusted with eaoh contributory, it was submitted to a oommittee on contribute ries ; and after it had been approved by that oommittee it was submitted for final sanction by the court- Thus nearly six hundred per sons were deprived of every dollar they had at one fell swoop,and the settlement of the bank's affairs will prove the ruin of more than fifteen hundred who depended upon it for profit- Well secured as the creditors of the City of Glasgow Bank were by the bank's own share holders, they seem also to have a hold upon the shareholders of another bank, the Caledo. nian. This bank held $2,000 worth of City of Glasgow stock, and thus the shareholders in that bank became liable for the debts of the City of Glasgow Bank. Consequently they began selling or transferring their shares to irresponsible parties in the hope of escaping assessments. Learning this, the liquidators of the City of Glasgow Bank requested the directors of the Caledonian to take step3 for closing their register of shareholders. Negotia tions ensued which resulted in an agree ment that a petition for winding up the bank should be presented, as the only means available for having the register closed, and the process of substitution of probably im pecunious for substantial shareholders rested, Considerable delay took plaoe under this petition, in the oourse of which the oon stitution of the Caledonian Bank was altered to the effect of preventing any transfer of stock without the approval of the Board of Directors, and the petition for winding up was withdrawn. To what extent the share holders of the Caledonian Bank will suffer re. mains to be seen. No ofte can realize the misery and distress caused by this failure. Those directly re sponsible for it the directors of the bank- arenow undergoing punishment in prison. but .this fact is small comfort to those whose property is gone and who are suffering the pangs of poverty and discouragement.

He is thoroughly acquainted with scientific thought and has attempted to harmonize modern sooiety and the gospel. Lately he preached against divorce, taking the ground that marriage should be indissoluble. Divorce, he said, belongs to a low stage of civilization ; an inharmonious marriage ought to be borne as a moral discipline, and in the interest of offspring and society. Civil marriages should be as indissoluble as those of the Church, both for the sake of the aggrieved parties and of society. He condemns second marriages by women. On a recent Sunday Father Didoa announced at the close of his discourse that the course of sermons which he was preach ing was suspended by the direction of his su periors. There was some sensation in the au dience when he announced the discontinuance of his course, and a voice exclaimed, "it is in tolerance." The preacher, however, an nounced that he expected to reoccupy the pulpit next Advent and next Lent should preach in Trinity church, where he should be at the service of the noblest cause whioh could attract a man, a patriot, and a believer namely, harmony between modem society and the gospel; between authority, without which there was no sooiety, and liberty, without which there was no individualism ; between scionoe and reason, without which there was no progress ; and the general religion crown ing tbem, without which there was nothing divine. There is considerable curiosity to see whether the Church will permit those liberal discourses. There is said to be great sympa thy with them among laymen and many priests. There is no very widespread feeling in Canada in favor of annexation, if we may be lieve the Toronto Mail, a leading Conserva tive papt -. The Mail sayB : "The hostiio measures oy whioh American statesmen hoped to coerce the Dominion into close relations with the Union have produced a diametri cally opposite effect. The termination of the reciprocity treaty knit Canada to the empire by closer bonds than before. During the prolonged palsy of our manufactures aud commerce which was brought to a close by the definite adoption of a national' policy there were perhaps some, as in 1849, who dreamed of annexation. Now there is no possible pretext for the notion that any dis loyal feeling prevails in the Dominion. No power in Canada can punish a man for advo eating the severance of the imperial tie. The mother country would oertainly never fire a shot in order to confine Canada against he t will in colonial bonds. So far from indepeu denoe freeing us from trouble it would mam festly morease it. Living side by side with a strong power, how long would this oountry be permitted to retain its autonomy ? The flimsy disguise under whioh two or three mask their ulterior purposes covers annexation. The first dares scarcely utter a plea to the Canadian people. The latter is masked because it dare not be shown. The Chinese wail on the other side of the border has made a British nation ality of us. Certainly we shall not leave the parental roof while we retain a natural respect for an indulgent mother, and we shall show our inherited courage to the last in fighting for her and for ourselves." This is what the Mail professes to think. Meanwhile the inter est felt by Canadians in the annexation ques tion is increasing. BEFOB3IED. C. MAHSH, DT A CATASTCOTBXSM.

On Christmas eve, as the night exoress on the Erie railroad left Jersey City, there were seated in a car a poor woman and her two lit tle children, aged about four and five years, going to the far West A conversation be tween the mother and children in which Santa Olaus was talked of was listened to by the passengers. The mother told her little blue- yea girl that as they were in the cars Santa Claus could not give them any presents be oause the train was running too fast for him to get on. This statement cast a shade of gloom over the bright-faced children. They sat for some time in meditative silence. It was soon observed that the little travelers were growing sleepy. Tears gathered in many eyes as the little ones kneeled on the car cushions to lisp their evening prayers. The little girl said, "Please tell good Santa Clans that we are on this train gomg to see papa, and if he can to put some presents in little Joey and Maggie's stookings hanging up on the oar window. Amen." The children then hung up their tiny stookings by the ear window, in a few minutes more they were soon asleep in the arms of their mother. Af ter a pause a gentleman in front of them spoke to the passengers as follows : "You bsve heard the prayers of these two little children. Now I will give $1 towards making them happy when they wake up in tho morn ing." He then passed his hat around the oar aud collected $5.75. He next bought some candy, oranges and figs and a picture book for each, whioh with two more silver dollars he placed in the little stockings. When they awakened in the morning and saw their stock ings full the little girl exclaimed, "Oh, mam ma, see what Santa Claus has found us be cause we prayed." The Maine Complication. Tlie Qnsktknn Submitted to tho Su preme Court by the Governor, Following is the list of questions prepared by the Governor of Maine with the advice and assistance cf his legal counsel, to be submitted to the supreme Court : V hen the uovernorand Council decide that th-jre ii no return from a oity on whioh re presentatives can be summoned to attend and ase lue:r scats in the Legislature, is it their duty to order a new election, or is it compe tent for the House of Kepressntatives, if it shall appear that there was an election of suoh Representatives to'admit them to seats, though no return thereof was made and delivered to the office of the Seoretary of State ? It K competent for the Governor and Coun cil to allow the substitution of other evidenoe in plaoe of the returned oopies of such lists as are provided for in article 4, part 1, sec tion o ot the constitution, to enable them to determine what persons appear to ba elected Representatives to the Legislature by a plu rality of all the votes returned ? it a return signed by a majority of the Selectmen cf a town, or the Aldermen of a city, valid within the requirements of same sec tion ? Is a return by tho aldermen of a oity which does not give the number of votes cast for each person voted for as a member of the Legislature, and does not show what parsons were voted for as such member in any one of the several wards of such oity, u valid re turn within the requirements of the same section? Are returns from towns or cities which are not attested by the Town or City Clerk valid within the same section t Have the Governor and Counoil a right to reject the returns of the election of members of the Legislature, required by tho same sec tion from the officers of towns, which were not made, signed and sealed up in open town meeting I Is the return of two persons purporting to bs the Selectmen of a town valid and sufficient evidence of the vote of the town when it ap pears that there were at the time of the meet ing at which the election was had but two Selectmen of that town ? Can a person who is not a citizen of the United States at the time be legally elected or constituted a Selectman of the town ? If a ballot box has a distinguishing mark in the judgment of the Governor and Counoil, such as would make it illegal under the statute, have they authority to disregard it in their ascertainment of what persons appear to be eieotcd, whore U appears by tho ouioLJ rotu.n , of the offioers of the town that suoh vote was received by the Selectmen, subject to the ob jection, and its legality referred to the Gov ernor and Uouncu for decision f If the names of any persons appear in the return without any number of votes being stated or carried out against them, either in words or figures, is it the duty of the Govern or and Council to treat those persons as hav ing tnewamo number of votes as another per son received for the same office, and whose name is placed first in the return, if they find dots under the figures or words set against such other person's name ? Have the txovernor and Council the legal right to decide what kind of evidence they will receive, and what the mode of proceeding before them shall be to enable them to de termine the genuineness of returns required by the article and section-of the constitution above mentioned ? If the Governor and Council have before them two lists of votes returned from the same town, differing materially from each other in the numbsrof votes returned as cast for the same persons, but identical in all other rnspeuts, both having been duly received at tho Secretary's office, and they have no evi dence to enable them to determine which is the true aud genuine return, are they required to treat tbem as valid, and if so which ? Spelling; of Shakespeare's Name. From the London Truth. Under the title of "which shall it be Shar per, or Shakespeare ?" the veteran Shakes pearean soholar, Mr. J. Halliwell-Phillips, has printad for private oustriDution a sman pamphlet, whioh coea far to settle the vexed question of the spelling of Shakespeare's name. Mr. Furnivall seemed to many people to stand on solid ground when he affirmed that the great dramatist surely knew how to spell his own name. His signature occurs tUree times in his will, and there it is spelled Shakspere. What could be more conclusive t Happily for the interests of minute contro versy, the form in whioh Shakespeare wrote his name on this occasion is not so conclusive as it seems. People were not so particular in the Elizabethan age as they are now about the spelling of tneir names, and, if anything, had a preference for varying the spelling, as if to try bow their names wonld look lu diucrent forms. Nowadays Browne would consider it a deliberate and intentional insult to write his name without the e, and Smyths would throw a letter into the fire if it came addressed to him as plain as Smith. But Mr. Halliwell Phillips has collected a number of instances to prove, what he does not point out for the first time, that the men of the seventeenth century, even of the first families, above all suspicion of not being able to spell, did not cars for uniformity. Thomas Fuller says he has seen the honorable name or v liners writ ten 14 several different ways in their own evi denoe. Shakespeare's son-in-law signed him self indifferently Hawle, Halle, and Haule; Bowley, the poet, Eouley, Rowleye, and Row ley ; Alleyne, the actor, Alleyne, Alleyn, Al lin, and Allen. With these and many other examples to back him, Mr. Hardiwell-Phil-lips may well contend that to follow signa tures would "revolutionize the system of ear ly nominal orthography and lead to prepos terous results." But what authority are we to follow ? We have spoken of Mr. Halliwell Phillips' pamphlet as settling the question, but perhaps we should rather say that it un settles the question. He does not, however, leave us without a guiding principle. We should spell the first syllable, he thinks, as it is pronounced. We do not pronounce it "Shak-pere," and, therefore, should not spell it "Shax-pere." It was pronounced "Shake spear" by his literary contemporaries, and so spelled by Ben Johnson, by the editors of the first folio of bis works, and by himself, or printers under his supervision, in two printed letters. People may, therefore, in defiance of the New Shakspere Society, go on spelling it Shakespeare, without feeling that they thereby oast upon the poet the imputation that he did not know how to spell bis own name. .

The large boaroing house near the west end of the bridge in fjollinsville, belonging to the Collins company, was burned on the morning of December 26th.
