Tmn opening of the local hospital is an *event on which the town and district of .,iamais4 be heartily .congratulated, To provide f£r the relief of poor sufl'ring hu inanity is such a plain Christian duty that *there is scarcely room for a second thought Saslto the necessity for an institution such as we now possess, more especially in view of increasing :population, the openinig out of stone quarries; and the prospective develop. .ment of coal mines and other sources of * mineral wealth. Evenjwithout anticipating the wants of the future we havhad ablun dant evidence of the need of a local los. ,pital, and'the inconvenience arising from the want of one.

A PAOCTICOAL FAIRER'S ADVICE, M?n, JouIN BUonDrmOI, of Orookwell, a fanrmer who uses his own brains, and th)o results of other intelligent practical farmors, in all his work, writes us to say that he has just finished sowing 30 acres of wheat, sow ing 3 pecks to the acre, and ho is satisfied that this qaantity is quite sullcient, and that one of the worst mistakles most farmers makeo is in sowing too thickly, on land that has not boeen properly propared. As a result of his reading and practical etxperionces he speaks to our farmers thus : Now that you are about to commence wheat sowing again, I hope you will at loeast give mno credit for uIy good intention by making public calculations I have worked out to show that farmers geoerally sow at the least double the quantity of seed ri quired, Mly calculations you will find self. ovident, being made from positive numbers and a reliablu statement by a learned profcs. seeor in an agricultural oollego in one of the United States, namely, th...
