The Young Men's Mutual Improvement Society met according to announcement last Wednesday night and tthere was a very fair average attendance of members: The sub ject for discussion was '` Monarchical and Republican forms of Government," which caused a very animated debate, most of those present taking part therein. At the close of the proceedings several gentlemen enrolled themselves as members. We ;notice by our advertising columns that the next meeting takes place on Wednesday evening at 815 p.m. As the society is not sectarian there need be no scruples in joining it, and our young men could occasionally pass away an hour or two with great benefit to them selves.

ARCHÆOLOGICAL AND TOPOGRAPHICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 3 November 1870
ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND TOPOGRAPHICAL &nbsp; &nbsp; NOTES: &nbsp; The thanks of every Irishman of taste, honor, and patriotism are due to the Irish Archmological Society, who have themselves been so thankful for the success with which their literary labours have been attended and who have so sincerely tendered their most grateful acknowledgements for access to the voluminous Irish annals, correspon dence of statesmen, and state papers hidden in the government archives of England. The chivalrous but rapacious Normans destroyed not those valuable records but secreted them, being on their part proofs of their rapacity and usurpation-for access to the manuscript. libraries of the University Colleges of Dublin and Oxford, and to the most valuable one of the Royal Irish Academy-for access to the, libraries of the universities, colleges of cont tinental Europe, and to, the records hidden. from the world amongst the dirty papers on the shelves of the convents and govern. ...

HOME NEWS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the European Mail.) SCOTLAND. The drought continues to be severly felt in Aberdeen, notwithstanding damp easterly fogs at night; with occasional drizzling showers. Pastures are getting very scanty everywhere, and in some places the fields are quite bare and brown. Mr McIntosh, of Havering Park, Essex has sold his roan bull-calf, " Grand Duke of Havering," when only one month old, to Mr H Brassey, M P., of Preston Hall, Kent, for 600 guineas. There were no less than four applicants who offered the same price.

Dr Cotterell was senior wrangler at Cam- bridge in 1835. Several thousands of the breech.loading rifles stowed in the armoury at Edinburgh Castle have been removed, by orders from the War Office.

A CAUTION TO GUSHIING SWAINS. Considerable amu.soment was created at the Fitzroy Police Court (says the Herald) on Thursday morning during the hearing of a case for illegal detention of property. The plaintiff whose name is . Phillips, had been paying his addresses to the defendant, a young lady named Stevens,.

ROYALTY IN LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 November 1870
ROYALTY IN LOVE The Prince of Schleswig Holstein has petitioned the King of Prussia to reduce him to the rank of count, and take from him the title, the priveleges, and the restrictions of princely rank. There is a woman in the ca3e, and the story culminates in this plea sant little bit of persocal gossip. The prince has only recently returned from India, where he has been several years engaged in ocieni tifie researches. Savan like, his first thought on reaching home was of his library, which he found in a very dusty musty, jumbled up and neglected condition. He went to work to bring order out of this literary chaos ; but soon found that he must have help, but who was worthy to touch his beloved books ? In his perplexity he applied to his steward, who at first declared that there was nobody in that out of the way place competent to the task of sorting, classifying, and arranging a scieatifie and classical library; but at last he bethought himself of his daughter's gover ness, the o...
JOSH BILLINGS ON FLEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 November 1870
JOSK BILLINGS ON FLE IS. The s+nailett of ti?e brute creation, and the most pesky, is the fleas. They a:re about the bigness of an onion seed, and shine like a bran new shot. They spring from low places and can bite wus than tLe mnu-keto, for they bite on the rnn ; one will go all over a mo;n's suburbs in two minutesa. It is iipossille to do anything with a flea unless you quit biz ness of aul kinds and hunt for the flea, and rvhen you hay Ibund him he aint there. This is one of the flua mysteries, the fakulty they have of being entire lost, just as you have found them. I don't suppose there is ever killed on an average, during any year, more than sixteen f?eas in the whole ov the United States ov Americ:i, unless there is a casuity of some hind-like when a dog gits drowned sudden. They are about as hard to kill as a flax seed iz, and if you don't mash them as faine as ground pepper, they will start business on a smaller capital jist as before.
