It has been aaaerted by eminent authori- ties that in uiiuerals Nova Scotia is snr paaaed by no other aection of equal area on the gfobe. It is also a oountry adapted to agriculture, so far as cereala aml the hardier vegetables are concerned, and has advantagcs for grazing which, if properly utilized, ahould place It atnong tbe principal cattle and shccp-raising OOUntriea in the world. 'X'hesi' advantagcs have, toacertaiu extenti been known for many years, but the wondertul development of the united states has naturally dwarfeil the poaaibilitlea of Other sections of the continent. The time has apparently coine, however, when this ricli section of the country is likely to re ceive the altention that is warrantcil hy its many natural adantages. A look at the uiapof North America ihoWI at a glance thatuospoton the Atlantic seahoaril sur passcs in natural advantagcs for rommcrce, so far as location is concerned, that point near the castcrn terminus of the Strait of Oanao that has becoma known as Termtual Olty, Nature has made it the i hief port of Nova Scotia, giving it a harbor that couhl atTord safe anchorage to the na ies of the world.

In the death of Mr. Beath a man in all the joy and pride and usefulness of full vlgor a man actlvely engaged in a great va riety of important affairs, a man of IncalcU lahle value in the community, a man whose services were in demand on every aide, a man whom everybody would have alliruied to he needed bere has, in the Inacrutable providence of a supreiuely wise God, been enatched away in au lnatant. if on Monday inorning we had seen hlm in a crowd of men we should have aelected bim as the one likely to live longerthan any other of cipial age in that company. liut on Mon day noon we asked, " Where is he?" He waa gone from human light, and theform in Wuich he had dwelt, which ever BUg- geated to hla acqualntancea bealth, atrengtfa and lOBg life. WBS deserted, pulseless, dead! ii aeema impoaeible, aml we muat needa make an etTort of tlie miml to oompel our acceptance of the trutb, our full acxnowl edgment of the itartllng, benumbing faot, Truly, " tbe race la not to the awift northe battle to the strong." And if anythlng COuld make us realiz.e the uucertaiuty of our tennre of life, anoh an uBpreaalve in- stance of sudtlen death iu the haruess of an nstoiiied toil would do so. We inay say, aml CBB say truthfully, that Mr. Beath would have preterred the qulck going to a llngerlng and painful decline, or even to protraoted belpleaaneaa aml Incapacity with out paiB.it the oboioe badheen permitted hiui. We may try to comfort ourselves with the thougbt that he has entlrely es oaped physii al luffering. that he was also spared the mcntul auguish of antii ipating ihe BOrrOW his death would occasioti others, and that no thougbt of unfulillled jdans aud unattained ainbilions couhl have em blttered his last houra, And still we do not recover from the shock, and we hardly yet feel that what we have learned is other than a diatreaaing dream. We think of the posts where he has stood on guard with vigilance and Bdelity, of tlie tields on which lle has doBe streuuous hattlc for the right, of the public improveiueuts of which he has been an earneat aml enterprialng ad- vocate iu word and ill deed, of the multl tudea of Individuala whose illterests were iu some uieasure iu his charge, aud we say, " We can not spare hlm yea ltnt the Bu preme Disposer of what man proposes, who uigniflea man hy making hiui a laborer together with himself, rchtikes uiir thoiiht , and says, 11 1 know best where your brother can he most useful. You can spare hiui and you muat." I'rohahly DO man OOUld have been taken from among Ul who had so Bxteneive and thorongh an acquaintanoe with the people in our oounty aud tbrough oiit our state as had Mr. llealli. He seeined to know everybody, and the anteccdents of nearly all, whom we couhl mentlon. This wide acQjualntanoe was promoted by the geuiality and allability which characteriz.eil bim, aud which aided materially iu fur thering his sticcess in life aud iucreasing his inliuence among men. He was alilo to uieet people, of w hatever classor comlition, as ou a commoii level aml put them at ouce at ease, and rarelv waa he found so busy iu the midal of miiitifarioiis duties that beoould not stop for some geiiial chat, some langhabte auecilote, with the latest comer into his ottice. It is not siuiply, theu, a loss to our town, which has been his hoine for souie seven teen years, tha! is deploreil to-day. It is a loss which is felt throughout a muoh wider area, anil we cau almost liear the cxclainu tion rising ou cverv haml about us iu our state at large, " How is the Btrong staff hroken"! "The strong statT" yes; for, Ihoiigh death ever tells of human weakness aml frailty, yet, as we go back iu tbought (as we most naturally do at this hour) he yiind last Monday noon, and picture our brother as he was, it is tlie thougbt of his str ntth that stauds forih most conspieu ously. The circumstances do uot admit of my attempting OOW any elaborate analysls of his i haiactcr, not do 1 proiiose to enter at length into biographloaj detaila. I will simidy allude to a few of the salieiil points iu Mr. Beath'a charaoter: He baaproved bimaelf ln many reepeota an exoeptlonally strong tuau. lle was strong pliysically; his erect carriiige and tirm tread, his bread shoulders aud full chest, all iudicated this lo tlie most casual observer. Aud we w ho knew soiuething of the iinmeiise amount of work he liid from week to week, how little real recreatiou he allowed hiuiself, how freouently he hraved serious expesHres without injury, aud how, wheu occusiou re qulred, he denled hiiuself food aud sleep with apparent iinpunity, had thns presetited to us great evidcni e of his superlor physical sonni jncss. He was stronu mentallv. too. His DBtiVe vigor of mind reeeived gains from the varied discipline of schools and , oollege and experience in teaching, in prt : fessional study, and, yet more, in thirty years' practice at tlie bar, often in conipetl- non witn meu oi sigmu aoility. I nns de veloped, his inemory was marvelously re- tentlve, The envy of hla Maoolatea, it was as tenacious as his grlp of an arguinent. It seemed never to let go a fact learned from a book or acipdred in personal intercourse. He grasped iiuickly and lirtnly the points in a controversy: he examined and cross ! examined witnesses w ith I'onsiimtnate skill; I he preaeed his opponaBl with the most powerfnl argiiiiMiiits that belonged to his eause, aml lie often seemed to impart a portion of his own commamling an I mas terful Vitallty to tlie strength of his case. The mental eipiipmeiit which he hail at command was jieculiarly valuahle berause : of its wide scope. He possessed far more ; than a mcre legal training. He was niaster of extensive storcs of kuowledge of a most ' praetioal klnd knowledge of thitiKs and events and business affairs, as well as of men aml his outlook upon life was hroad ened by much reading in lines not jiro fessional. However elosely occiipied, he Insisted upon securing sotne time to him self lor inilnlging his literary tastes, aud his large library grew year by year through frequeilt addltioas of a varied charai ter. He was a loverof hlstory, and was especially well Veraed in that of his native state. tndeed, all that was anclent poaacaacd at tracttvennas for him, aml, with sutlicient lelsnre, he inight easily have becoiue noted for his antlqaarlan iuterest. Conacioua in some uieasure of his intellecttial strength, he was not averse to thoae rontests for which his profeaalon afforded many op- portUBltiea. He entered with z.est iuto a disctission, aml in court or out of it enjoyed crossing swords in debate with a foemati worthy of his steel. As have thougbt of this phase of his character, the picture of the spirited war-horse drawn in the hook of job has risen before mytnindl the noble steed, rejoicing in his strength. eager for the fray and mooklng at fear. And io one of hla aaaoclatea of the bar as sures us that, lnatead of being exhausted by a protraoted etTort in court, "he was ap parently refreshed by a long jury trial." Aml Mr. Beath was strong morally also. Be had poaitive oplniona and deoided prin- ciples on uuesiions of morals. and ln re also he had the courage of his convictioiis. Tlie eause of temperam e had in him a sturdy aupporter, Bellevlng iu the principlea of Freemasonry, he sustained them by many i an earnest wcird. A republican in polltlcl, I he was a tower of strength to his party. A liberal Christian in his cliurcli relatious, he attempted no disguise of his beliefs aud dis beliefs, but declared them openly, forcibly ! and often. Insuch matters inatlers of the j most serious import it was not poaaibte for him tobe half-hearted, or stainl as a cipher. He was poaitive, frank, iinHinching yes, i aggressie, if you will. He belonged nat urally, and by right of hirth, to the party of progreaa. it fell to hla lot to antagoniae a great many difTerent persons from time to time in court, in pollttca and in business re latious, and doubtleaa he has ofteu been i thotight to be in the wrong. Hut the alien- j atlona that grew out of oppoatug oplniona 1 and contlicting interests are in abeyance I now; and it will be admltted on all -id.-s that be was a most valuahle champion of every eause that he espoused. I am glad to be permitted to offercoBcerning him auch teatimony as comea to us to-day in tlie united utterance of th judges of our su preme court. They were all together in our village yesterday, aml. sharing in the general sorrow, felt constrained to pay this marked and exoeptional honor to Mr. Beath'a memory, aendlng to lier who is tlie j chief mourner under this blow (of whose personal loss aud grlef I do not venture to I apeak), this testiuouial: " Hi milfvi, That WB have learned with profonml sorrow of j the suddeu death of Hon. Charles II. Heatfa , a leailing iiiember of the bar of this state; that becanae of his ablUty aml lutegrlty as a lawver, aml his high character as a man, I we deeply deplore his loss to the profeaalon I and the state; aml we tender to his widow our ilncere aympathy in her great atllic tion." Aii! "how is the strong statT , hroken"! Yes, he was indeed a "strong 'stalT "; aud, contident in his strength, he 1 added raaponaibi lity to reaponaibiiity, care to care, etiterprise to etiterprise, and he , eause his bealth did not hreak down he , contlnued to do, it would almost seem, the work of two or more ordinary men, until the swift end came. Cares did not worry hlm, aa they are apt to worry people of a iiervous temperament. The vexatious per plexities eucountereil in his otlice were not allowed to go home with him at night and disturb liis rest. He couhl put them out of mind and drop promptly into refreabing sleep. And, knowlng all this, he was perhapa leu to overestimate liis power i of endurance. liut there is a limlt to ' all liuiuan strength. He reached that limlt at an utterly unforeseeu momeut, I and benoeforth we iball look for hiui 1 in his aocnatomed baunta in vain, And how greatly will he be tuissed!
