miasion, in its report the condition of
affairs in Ireland, as tiearing on the dis
tress of the peasantry and the threat
ened famine which the expected failure
of crops would bring upon the people,
took pains to emphasise tbe fact that
there waa abaolute need of plenty of
sunshine after the date of Its report in
order to effect the maturing of the crops
which were already in immediate danger
of rotting under the influeno- of the
cootmued wet weather and never yield
inga harvest to tbe anxiona and fright
ened tillers ot the soil The weather,
however, aisoe that time baa been 41
moat wholly and continually cold and
rainy up to the preaent tiaoe, without
the warmth and sun which were essen
tial to even a small result of the labor of
the peasantry and to the salvation of
the people from utter starvation. The
result naturally, is that a tarrible calam
ity stares the Irish in tba faoe, and
gaunt famine is already striding upon
them and menacing tbe lrvae of innu
merable families of poor. It is a wretch
ed and awful situation, and the brutal
callousness of a targe part of the Rnghah
people W this horrible stat*» of thingn is
calling forth indignant protests from
many, and urgent desoands that some
thing be done to relieve tba menacing
suffering, the name of common hu
manity. In addition to tba fearful m
pectin Ireland, pot*»te bligbt is appear
ing in Linooinahire and other low
ering parte of England, soma of which,
like ijinooineium are noted for the fine
agricultural condition and tbe usual
rialhnees and eureneas of thalr cropa.
The Tory and I'nioniat press ia still
inclined to tgnors tba mstter, and pr«
umds to be blind to tbe acknowledged
and undeniable truth of a frightful
promise of disease sad death. The
Standard, for example, has a blithe and
foolmIi leading article on the report of
the land com mission whtel stated the
facte as they were), which would give to
anyone who might happen to be igno
rant of the actual situation an impres
eion of tbe condition and proapaot of the
crops in Ireland of tbe uiost rosy char
acter. This ailly and really inhuman at
teuipt to drive the English public into
an idea that no aaeist*n« t* needed to
prevent wholesak fataiittw amcoig the
wretched people, who depend altogether
on the fruition of their scanty planting*
for food for the winter,

day last wsek tbe Httk grandson of Dr
J. CI Barr let fall a watermelon wludb
burst on the ground. Inside tha melon
was a snake twelve inches king. It had
a slimy, eel Uke appearance, but was
dark-colored with white speta over its
body Although torpid, it was alive
and began to slowly crawl sway The
fragments of the melon what: placed to

before the melon burnt, and tba snake
must have grown in the tnekm from tbe
Utne it was a blossom Although a stm
liar occurrence has been reported, it waa
never before obeerved in tbe melon
