NOTES. SOME COBWEBS IN THE AIR. ' It seems a pity to disturb such thread have, expressions as "vested interests, "the m g'f'ogelling' press," etc. These old timers do. great service in election campaigns, but dragging tbem to light on any other occa sion,.constitutes a breach of confidence with Buch' old and honored institutions. But a • zealous correspondent, in to-day's "Dally Ob server," apparently has no qualms Jn this .respect, for he cold-bloodedly deposits on •jour breakfast-plate this morning those good 'old, righteous, piercing shafts. Exception is 'taken by the correspondent to a "Note" In the "Daily Observer" relative to the visit of Mr. "Andy*' Fisher and Mr. "Jim" M'Gowen *fo the Coronation, and because it was thought, that these gentlemen may lunch fwith "a dook," a homily from this gentle &a&n Is our burden. There is also some men* , don of a fallen angel, but lest Vz be con sidered di&Ioyol, not to say* anarchical, it lias |been decided to kee...

There were all sorts of akitfs alony tb* river front , hut- we wer&lt;? too lionebt to bar row any of them. You see. they were chained to stakes and padlocked.
