Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!" These ruminations are the re sult of reading that his Worship the Mayor left-the bench, -with the gentlemanly and vernacular oration, " My colleagues can do it on their own." One-is ·fain to ejaculate not altogether too com plimentary things about those " who sit in high.places," and to emphasise the oft-repeated ad juration "that the fount of jus tice must be kept pure." Perhaps a catego...
