Vegetables look' fresher and healthier, and although much rain will be required before itf can penetrate the soil to do much good, yet these slight showers are most acceptable, and will assist young crops materially, until something more lasting comes to carry them on to maturity.

' What was deliberately denied as a matter of justice has been conceded by accident; through the loose phraseology of the law-makers, women in England, properly qualified, will, we believe, hence forward be entitled to the exercise of the franchise. The point has been raised by the overseers of Salford, who appear to be better lawyers than those who make the statutes; they have discovered in a recent act of parliament-" that in all acts words import ing the masculine gender, shall be deemed to include females, and the singular the plural, unless the con trary as to gender- and' number is expressly pro vided."
