" Withontgoing to the land of pcnnate and presidents, however, we hare- a worthy example ouraelvce in the perron Sir John Bobertson, Everyone from Carpentaria down to Wilson's Proroon tory is aware of Sir John's abilities, and a good idea may.be formed of hie -pea manship from the face of one of hi* old sweethearts having told mc the - other day that the first love-letter sheerer received from Sir John was so knotted np, criss-crossed, and tangled around m general, that she took it to be ? sketch of the Crimean war, and had it dnly framed and. hnng np over die parlour mantlepiece.
