PETERKIN. A SCHOOLBOY'S LETTER. (Bs. ?TAES'S GAZETTE.) Befor'e producing the remarkable epistle in Petdrkin's hanldwriind Which his schoolmaster has just forwarded me, I had better say who Petbrkin is. , He is my eldest boy, known to the neighbourhood, his mother recently discovered, as ' Pickles;" and for the last six weeks we have had dim home for the holidays. "tEtat 13," written by himself on his Cesar, seems to show that Peterkin is laboriously' aisaterinr the classics; we have no other proof. While athosno he has tried some of us sorely. He never " hears the breakfast bell ;" he and one Johnny Fox, a boy of dark reputation, have got tlheir parents into troubleby stretching a string across the road, some Gft. from the ground, against which many tall hats have struck, to topple in the dust; cachinnations from over the wall following the disaster.

SWEARING FOR THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

SWEARING FOR THE FAMILY. A returned Chinese missionary relates the following anecdote, showing the caution of the Chinese. He says : During one of our examinations for candi dates for baptism at Ngukang, I observed that one woman and some three or four young people had the same surname. This circum stance led to the following conversation between'myself and one of the young men: ' I observe you all have the same surname. Are you members of the same family?' I in quired. ' Yes,' one replied. ' This is my mother, and these are my brothers.' . 'Where is your father?' I continued. ' He is at home, attending to his business.' 'Does he approve of your embracing Christianity?' ' Yes, he is entirely willing.' 'Why does not your father himself become a Christian?' ' He says it would notdo for all the family to embrace Christianity.' ' And why' I asked, with some curiosity, 'does lie think so ' ' He says that if we all become Christians our heathen neighbours will take advantage of that sircu...

I have to.day just seen one token out of a bed of clay on Tue~slay last, the 18th inst., in a new railway cutting at present being made here. It is alive, but very inactive and semi. torpid.

THE UNITED STATES NAVY. (PALL MALL GAZETTE.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 24 November 1888

THE UNITED STATES NAVY. (PALL MAJ.L GAZErTIn.) It is a curious coincidence that, while Lord Charles Beresfo~n and other independent autho rities are showing up the shortcomings of the British army in the columns of the Poll Mall Gazltte, and while M.'Bourde, in the Teape, is trying to prove that the administration of the French Marinei as as bad as bad can be, an un kindly light is being thrown by the Now York press upon what it terms "the alleed fleet' of the United States of Amernsca. The chances of the United States Government being called upon to, defend itself against a first.rate naval power are, of course, extremely remote. Nevertheless it is a little sorprising that a country which has a seaboard of 13,000 miles, a mercantile marine of 25,000 vessels, and which has more spare cash than it can spend, is absolutely.without thd means of defending any one of its coast cities from the guns of a modern ship of battle.; FOU?iTEElN MILLIONS WASTED IN PATCHNOG.

MINING FOR TREES. The Dennisvillo (N. J.) correspondent of the Neow liork Times states that an industry, the like of which does not exist anywhere else m the world, furnishes scores of people in this part of New Jersey with remunerative employmentand has made comfortable fortunes for many citizens. It is the novel business of mining cedar treces-digging from far beneatth th sur face immense logs of sound and aromatic cedar. The fallen and submerged cedar forests of Southern New Jersey were discovered first beneath the Dennisvillo swamps seventy five years ago, and have been a source of constant interest to geologists and scientihsts generally over since. There are standing at the present day no such enormous specimens of the cedar anywhere on the face of the globe as are found imbedded in the deep muck of the Dennisvillo swamps. Some of the trees have been un covered measuring oft in diameter, and trees 4ft through are common. Although ages must have passed since these great forests...
