LOCAL NEWS. THE deputation appointed by tlio Munici pal Council re the Henry-street drain, waited on the owners of land on the north side of that street, on Monday afternoon, to request that they would allow the drain to be diverted from its present course and carried through at the rear of the allot ments, thus improving the street, and en hancing the value of the frontages, and at the sanio time remedying an evil which at prosent endangers the public safety. The owners of land fronting Henry-street, with one exception, were opposed to the proposal, unless the Council: arranged to purchase tho whole of their property.

ffepw Hiirass, Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, MARCH 17. TUB public generally will probably bail with satisfaction the proposed amendments made by Mr. Cohen' to the Licensing Act, and read in the House a first time on Tuesday, and no doubt at the second "reading on Tuesday next the Legislature will, with a lew alterations, accept the proposed sections. The present Licensing Law in its working since its introduction a little over a year ago, has proved that there was amplo room for amendment, though taking into consider ation the-fact that the Act' was almost a sweeping measure on the previous one, and therefore could only by tested by practical application ; it must be acknowledged by all parties that it was a worthy piece of legis lation upon a very .'knotty andexteusivo sub ject, and as all new measures of its kind contain defects, and require time to dovelop them; showing at the same time how those .defects might be remedied, it was only rea sonable to expect that suc...

A clergyman in tho west country enjoyed a reputation for his gift or " powor o' prayer."

The Adjutant's Story. CHAPTER X. THE reader will doubtless recollect how the drum-major said in tlio last chapter tliat many of the drummers were sick in hospital. This, alas ! was too true. But disease was not confined to the boys. The sickly season had set in in deadly earnest. Pestilence was rife amongst the troops in garrison, cholera, low fever, and dysentery were filling theihospital-aye, and tli^churchyard, too, to overflowing. It was not long before disease laid its gaunt head on Harding's little frame, and held him helpless in its baneful grasp. The incident recorded in the last chapter seemed to have made a strong and painful impression upon him. It was the climax of a series of mishaps.

Stilling the fluttering of lier foolish little heart, and hastily gather ing her partially arranged tresses together with a dozen hairpins, she tripped lightly down the tmlighfced liall, and was received into the open arms of a youth of twenty-five summers, who impressed a sounding kiss upon her maiden lips, and who then handed her over to his mother and four sisters, who followed closely upon his heels, and who repeated the operation in a thoroughly work manlike manner.
