COLOR BLINDNESS .... Dltonism, or color-blindlese, is very prevalent in France, says a Paris correso pondent. Dr. Favre,has .examined 1,050 'railway emprsj"e betuween 'eighteen and thirty years of age, and found 08 afflicted wills daltonism, or 1 in 10.7. Dr. Feri;,' at Lorlit;i. similarly eoamiued sailors, and found tihe proportion exceeded that revealed by Dr. Wilson in the case of England, viz., 1 in 20.. M. Favre observed among the persons that Ire' examined 'that they com. mitted errors respecting colors as follows 78 times with green, 50 with blue. 54 with viuolt, 4l oith yellow, and 10 times with red. This imperfeootion has a peculiarly grave relationship with safe railway and sea trave?llifn vllere igunal and look.out men are expected to distinguish colors, in order to prevent 3ollisinos.

The leading features in the general line of argument are worth noticing as they at once commend themselves to plain, honest common sense. First we have laid down a necessity for economy and the most judicious dis tribution of a small sum of money on certain defined principles-the adop tion, for instance, of a national policy as distinguished from a provincial or party one. Next, that each system of railway construction should aim at uniting the principal divisions of the colony with tioe metropolis, and at the same time forming u.,ks of i?ter...

SHORT LESSONS FOR GAR DENERS AND AMATEURS. (From the Queenwlande.') Never work with bad tools. :Theb difference between the work done inu mouth would buy new ones. Have a place for every tool; and never leave one outor its place; tr, to usan an old adage, " A place for every: thing, and everything in its place.'. ' Take every morsel of waste off the vegetables sent to the kitchen. It\is so much trouble saved to the cook, and so much manure fur the garden. Never waste any animal o vegetable refuse, but preserve all for use in the garden. The very soapsuds from the laundry are rich manure. Whenever you have the opportunity dig to tlhewaste of the vegetables you are going to plant or sow. Snaa refuse, by adding to the soil the food required by the growing crop, forms the most appropriate manure. Never grow a bad variety of any. thing if you can help it. Iuferigr vegetables or fruit-trees take the some room and require as much attention pa good onee.' Let draining of the ground be your ...

Na;urally enough; I have my own notions on " things in general," and, as the opportttunity of giving them publicity is allowed me. 1 do so subject of course to editorial supervision.
