? . — T I* all young communities, that is to say in all young countries, whilst society is, a9 it were, settling down, many virtues and faults develop themselves that are neither so observ able or attended with such important results as in the social circles of the old world. One ot the most exalted functions of the public Journalist is to direct attention to any such leading characteristics, and sound the praise of virtue or paint with such graphic skill as he may.! be gifted, with the glaring social fault. - If an observant stranger visited these snores, and after carefully scanning colonial Bpciety, were asked to name the most objec tionable feature of that society, we fear he would be compelled to reply, 'wealth wor ship.' From the vice-regal habitation to the pot-house, in the private drawing-room or public street, this unworthy, contemptible -spirit figures in fantastic hatefulness. Strip ped of its specious reasonings and delusive surroundings, it is perfectly farcical to see...

The new reforms about which there have been such brave flourishes in the journals turn out to be mero shams.

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. EVACUATION OP HARPUR'S FERRY BY THE SOUTHERN FORCES— REPULSE OP THE FEDERAL TROOPS NEAR FOttT MUNRO. American news to the -15th June has been received.

The Times \ gave the following sickening account of the encounter : — 'The contrast between the tvfo men as they en tered the ring was even more startlingly dis propoitionrtto than that between Heenan and Sayers. Hurst stood nearly 0 feet 3 inches in height, and weighed \1 6 stone, while bis gigantic and swarthy ohest and limbs, in which the muscles stood out in grent folds and knots, lay like bosses of bronze, and made his figure look even larger and more formidable, if possible, than it was in reality Looking at his massive proportions — the evidences of tremendous strength, as the thews and sinews crept nnd rolled with every movement— there fell a kind of fascinating terror, which changed to n I most -sickening apprehension for the fate of the man who dared such a Colossus to n combat.

DREADFUL CONFLAGRATION. London has been alarmed and dispirited by a great Fire— the greatest, it is said, that has occurred for a period of some years. It broke out on Saturday afternoon, on tho Banks of the river, on the Surrey sido of the water, not far from London Bridge railway station. As night advanced, it lit up nearly the whole of London, and was seen far into tho surrounding country. So great was the oonungratiou that it is alleged that if it had not providontially been a still evening, the whole of southern London would have been iu flames. The loss of property would have been immense, and the calamity has not been unattended with loss of life.
