not Bad A correspondent of the Cincinnati Times, from Burlington, Vi., relates the ' following : I am reminded—speaking of cheese—of a little anecdote the stage driver told me yesterday. We were passing an old farm house with an untidy yard and dilapidated outbuildings, when he said ; " A Boston man got off a pretty cule speech to the owner of that place t'other day." "What was it?" I asked. ' " Why, ho called at the house to buy a cheese, but when he come to took at the lot, he concluded he didn't want 'em, they was so full of " skippers." So ho made an excuse and was going away* when the farmer said to him : - " Look "here, Mister, how can T get my cheese down to Boston the cheapest 1" ., " The gemloman looked at the stuff a moment, and Baw the maggots squirming, and said: ¦ ? " Well, I don't know; let 'em be a day or (wo and you can drive 'em right down)" CiiAniTsr thinkoth do evif.

"Carrying the War into"—Canada! We find the following letter in the Baltimore American, published without comment. It professes to have been received by the Chief of Police of Montreal, and is copied from the Montreal Herald.- If genuine it manifests much zeal by the said Pope to " extend the area of freedom :" FaEDRnrcK, Mabyland, Jan. 1, 1855. To the Chief of Police, Montreal, Canada : Dear Sir:—Though ihe laws of your Piovinoe preclude slavery, and you may deem it improper that I should address you relative to that question, which has created so great sectional animosity at home and elicited such disapproval abroad—still,, believing that a sense of justice influences every right thinking man in the formation of his judgment and the mode of his conduct, I have taken the h'borty, which if it meets not wilh views alike to mine, will be pardoned.

isfied that such meetings of the friends of temperance from distant parts of the country do much to promote unity of action and insure Ihe prosperity of our cause. I regret much ihat there wets no Public Temperance house in Troy, but the Landlord of the Troy House, Mr. Morse, showed his appreciation of temperance influence by closing his bar during our session, and I trust that our gathering was not wilhaut its permanent influence, not only on him, but upon the citizens generally.
