Tin's in, HO far, satisfactory : but we should pat cn that account relax our eflorts in bduilf of the sufferers. Some of the speakers seemed in clined to rely solely on this district for the nid to ho afforded to those in ne?d of it. Wo do not think this would bo either just or desirable. The people of Sydney liavo nobiy and spontaneously come forward with offers of assistance, and it would lie ungracious in us to refuse those offer?. How ever great the resources of tho district, it would scarcely be fair to call upon it to bear the whole of the loss. It must be remembered, too, that all those in this district who will be called upon to con tribute, are thennelves more or less sufferers by the flood, and it would be unwise, therefore, to re fuse the assistance of those who will scarcely feel the ef...
