A. seeing that Mr. Matthews' own urinted report has actually gone forth 'to tho world, there is no need for me to state his reasons. Ho tells his own story therein (a copy I send for your perusal.') But for myself, as the question has been raised, not only in your journal, but in tho columns of a contemporary, I feel in duty bound to say my only reasons for resigning the position I held as General Superintendent of Missions and resuming ordinary parish work, after about 10 years of missionary service, was the rottenness I found existing at tho very core of ...

They all had it wrong. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 April 1889
They all had it wrong. Mr. James Pays tells of a cramming sehool that he remembers whore timo was of such importance to the elder pupils that they brought books with them even to their meals, and read until their turns cauio for the not very relish - able viands. ' Misery so sharpened our wits,' ho says, ' that tho ordinary school books had no power to torment its ; we pro cured cribs to all their problems. But the head-master had a manuscript book of his own, from which issued the most hateful questions ; it cost infinite pains and trouble— besides involving us in tho serious offence of burglary — to get the crib to that ; but at last we effected it. 'The improvement in the work of the school became henceforth very marked, gave great satisfaction to every body ; the master, our parents and guardians, and oiirselves were all equally gratified. There was a little to much quickness, perhaps, consistent with prudence, in producing our results, but their accuracy 'was iinimpeachable. 'O...

How she got her bank notes cashed. The following is a good story of Irish humour. The wife of an Irish peasant farmer had driven some pigs into a small town to dispose of, and having negotiated the sale, she received iu payment bank-notes issued by a well known Dublin bank, but the name of the bankers not being familiar to her, doubts arose in her mind as to their stability, so she decided to get them cashed at the bank in the town where she then was. Arriving at the bank in question, she presented them across the counter, re questing the cashier to give her gold in exchange. That gentleman expressed expressed his regret at not being able to accommodate hei1, saying it was not their custom to cash notes issued by other banks The old lady was much put out, and explained that sho had var ious purchases to make in the town be f ore returning home, and was unable to get tho notes changed elsewhere.

The Homing Pigeon. AN INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 April 1889
The Homing Pigeon. AN INCIDENT. Only a short time back a man was found dead in a London omnibus. Along side of him on the seat was a box. On its being opeueditwas found to contain a homing pigeon. As the man was not known, and as he had nothing on him that would lead jjto his identification it was decided to liberate the bird, first attaching to it the sad news. Tho re sult was not long in coming, the man's relations soon appearing on the scene, and tho mystery of the man's identifi cation was soon cleared up. There is something very melancholy yet beauti fully touching in this little incident, and I am sure it will bo indelibly im pressed on tho minds of all those persons who were connected with the mournful circumstance. This bird, with its wonderful love of home, was possibly the means of preventing its owner frombcingbui'ied in an unknown grave.

That Asylum Again. Two members of the Snowdrop Min strels, Messrs. Crouch and Kings borough, called at our office and gave us tho following itom, which is of a somewhat startling nature : — By re quest the Snowdrops, accompanied by the juvenile string band, gave an enter tainment at the Macquario-streot Asylum. Tho programme was a good one, and tho old men enjoyed it very much. Items were rendered by Messrs. Maling, Kingsborough, Thompson, Eiloy, Griffin and Weekes, also by the juvenile orchestra. Before the pro gramme was finished tho invitod guests retired for refreshments, taking their chairs with them. At the conclusion of tho performance the minstrels were in vited to take refreshments — in another room— not with the favoured guests. It was very annoying to them to hear the w.ords, ' mixed lot ' repeatod now and then. But to return to tho re freshments.

Mrs. Cunynghame's Case. Mr. Hugh Taylor asked the Colonial Secretary, — Will he have any objection to lay upon the Table of this House, copies of all papers having roference to the removal of Mrs. Cunynghaine from the position as Superintendent of the Macquarie-street Asylum for Infirm and Destitute, together with a printed copy of the report of the General Asylums Inquiry Board on this Insti tution ?

The Honorable Mem ber, if he require tho papers, had better seek them in tho ordinary way by moving a resolution.

£1 per ton Prospect and 3herwood. COUNCIL MEETING. THINGS VERY MIXED. Thk usual fortnightly mooting of the above Council was commoneod on Thurs day evening, thoro being a full Council — a rather singular affair, bo it undor stood. The air was calm and subuueu, still with a heaviness that botokonecl a violent upheaval at any moment. Tho barometer was very low and the re porters had everything snug in antici pation of a squall. Still when it did como with a crash and a smash, thoy found themselves totally unprepared for it'.— but stuck to their posts manfully for about a very rough half hour and then gave it up in despair, fniling to ' cut out' any individual spualcer. When Aldermen Airoy, Stiemo, Paton, Hollier and Anstiss got fairly going, all together, tho reporters looked at each other, and, simply bewildered, asked' of each other, ' who's on top now ?' Tho answer bo ing, ' all on side.' The first trouble came after the minutes had been read. Alderman Jones stated that tho resolut...

On tho 2nd of March a letter to the ColonialSeerotary^was sent through one of our members, Mr. John Nobbs, asking for an enquiry in terms of the Municipal itios Act, on various grounds, and well within their rights forasking for such in quiry.

Agricultural and Horticultural. (By ?WEsraiEAD.) The Phuit Coxfebence. — As you have promised to criticise the proceed ings of the Conference, editorially, I . will simply air my private opinion that %ae fflitherinpr was a gueat success. There is nothing like contribution and co-operation. So long as the F.G-.TJ. is merely a central Cumberland organ isation it will back its full measure of influence, Once, however, it means the Hunter and the Hume and so on linked harmoniously with' Central Cumberland it will be a thoroughly representative body equal to the task of forcefully pushing the fruit industry ahead.

'Havo you got tho memorandum still?' she askod suddenly. 'Will you givo it tome?' 'But it is useless, oxcopt to satisfy thoso who trust mo that I had no part in tho disgraceful affair.'
