amazed, and thoroughly impressed with the

Of this amount $21,011 is ebaigeablc t?

The Legislature-.
This body adjourned yesterday a week
ago, and all the members went home. Thir
ty-six acts of a public nature were passed by
a four months session. The work done how
ever, towards reform in the Government, is
of a nature to please the people. Wc will
revirw it in some future issue.
Three Masonic meetings held last week
and all the anti-masonic "better halves" in

We'll bet our Ja*,t quarter that it was a
long-handled "three string broom," and
