THE PEARL OF THE ANTILLES. THE ISLAND OF JAMAICA. The late disaster in the 'Pearl of the .Antilles' made one turn to the recently published volume 'Jamaica: Painted by A. S. Forrest; Described by John Hen derson.' The letterpress takes the form of chatty descriptions of the people and the island, which, supplemented by the Illustrations in color, give an excellent idea of both. Mr TTondorKnn writes en- I thusiastically of Jamaica. For instance: 'People (he says) talk of its industrial backwardness, its commercial weakness, of the impossibility of its finances. As well discuss the poverty of the convol vulus, or the nakedness of the lily. Jam aica was created by Providence to show mankind something of the meaning of beauty. It was to stand as an expla nation of EHen — a glimpse of Paradise. Nature never intended that it should be come a rum-garden, or even a field of speculative agriculture. It is just such a place that should be allowed to stand for ever, as the garden of the world;...

Fork in hand, she fnrnpri with snrnriso. 'The big bear,' cried David. 'He's been in the sheep corral again.

NEWCHAMP'S ORIGINALITY. ! i By H. T. WEBSTER WORRELL. Mr Moskins was a journalist of the old school. M r Newchamp was u journalist of the young school. 'Therein lay the dif ference between them. Mr Moskins was the editor, proprietor, printer, and publisher of the 'Dyketown Gazette;' Mr Newchamp was the repor ter thereof. ' in his) paper Mr Moskins occasionally referred vaguely to 'our staff;' to such of his friends as lived at a distance nnd | wero unlikely to visit Dyketown, Mr / Newchamp described himself as the sub editor of the 'Gazette.' The meaning was the same; in fact, Mr Ncuvchamp was reporter, advertisement canvasser, correspondent, proof-ro.ader, accountant, and sub-editor all in one.

The 'Gazette' was essentially a sobersides sort of journal, intensely con servative in tone,...
