gteitbra (fette MONDAY JKVJSJNINtt, NOV'JR. 18, 1S7S. A Broad Hint from Halifax.?Instead of quarreling with us about the Halifax fishery award, which they are in honor bound to pay whether it be excessive cr not,our American coa sins might do a graceful not now by joining her Majesty's forces and the Canadian people in welcoming to Halifax the new governor general and his royal wife. Great Britain has often douo honor^ to America and to distinguished American citizens, and an excellent opportunity is now afforded for the Amerioaos to display their good will to Canada and to tno raoiuer country. What could bo mora proper thao for tho United States government to send one or two vessels of their Davy to join in tho weloome to the Viceroy aod tho daughter of Koglacd's Queen? Would this not bo a graceful act and reflect more honor upon the American flag than refnsing to pay the award of a high court of arbitration appointed by the two nations??Halt fax (iV. JS.) Chronicle, Nov. 11. The Greyhound.?The greyhound runs by tho eyesight only, and Ibis wo observe as a faot. Tho carrier pigeon fliea his two hundred and fifty miles homeward by eyesight?namely,from point to poiDt of objects whioh ho has marked: but this is only our conjecture. The fierce dragon fiy, with twelve thousand lenses in his eyes, darts from angle to angle with tho rapidity of a flashing sword, and as rapidly darts baok, ' not turing in tho air, but with a olash reversing the action of his wiogp, and icstanteously calculating the distance of tbo objects, or ho would dash himself to pieces. But in what coDforma* < tion of the eye does this consist? Nooneoan answer. ______ For fine Clothing 803 Doalham, G2 King street, corner of Fairfax. PREPAREFOR THE COLD BLASTS OP WINTER.
