I desire to repeat post emphatically that he made use of the expreselona referred to in my previous letter, notwithstanding his denial, and all who were present can bear me out in the assertion. Mr Iasmes admits having said, "I have produced one of the larpat hoImues in Alex andra," which statement alone is sufficiently permeated with the great " I" to be thoroughly unjust to the efforts of thp hospital committee. Your correspondent " A.B.A" complains of Mr Moon's not having delivered a letter from the hospital committee to M'r ITamea till two days before the performance. Now, I happen to know that before any official intimqtion could have been made to Mr Ilamea, all prrangoments for the performance had already been completed; and I also know, from...

THAT thQ eie te of the deadlock which took place at the beginning of the present year, and the goeneal, feeling of insecurity which the proceedings of Blacak Wednesday occasioned, have not yet passed away is being made amply apparent in various ways. The demon s'rations of the unemployed in I el bourne continue to be made, and not withstanding the attempts made to depreiiate their importance it is plain that a great scarcity of employment exipsts asd that a large amount of actual want and distress is prevalent. Besides those who are positively unem. ployed there are. the large number of men for whom the Government have been obliged to, make special arrange. ments in order to relieve by railway worlkshops, qwa.mp, labor, and other devices. Had not these extra works been undertaken there is no doubt that the copdition of things would, have been even more alarming than it is, a...

I should advocate a little more exercise. He also says I am never to be found.

One of the trustees, our worthy president, is as vprery-one knows a genuine sportsman, if as Pnuch canOot be said of the other, and I believe there are plenty who would subscribe towards the funds if only asked to do so, and I would suggest that a meeting be called, s collector appointed and the district ganvassed, whereby I doubt not snillolent uoney could be raised to give a really good ray's sport. It is always a mistake to place these matters in the hands of men who only think of themselves; what is wanted is men to hold the reins who are themselves true pportsmen s and then there is no chance of fail...
