The famous old saying that a ship should not be endangered for the sake of a hap'orth of tar, is sometimes more honored in the breach than the observance, and we\liave seldom encountered such an illustration of this than the Forbes' Eire ^Brifeade. i We have here the spectacle; of a splendidly equipped body of men—splendidly equipped; in all but a main essential v-va body of men .capable of the most useful service to the: ^community, yet robbed of their full-'utility*.be-, cause of departmental, cheeseparing.
