As, however, at the close of 1877, recruits for the regular army were offering them selves at the rate of O00pr week, the pro bability is that there has been during the lastt hree months, in view of war contin gencies, a large augmentation of -the re gular forces.

SELECT POETRY. THE ANGEL AND THE FLOWER. A flowere e grew in the garden of. earth,. A beautiful floweret, on whose birth The aiigels sweetly .smiled And hovered around it with anxious fears, And moistened it often with heavenly tears; For they dreaded the blight of the coming years - Would harm their fav'rite child: So the angels took that floweret fair, And planted it safe, with heavenly care, In the cloistered bowers of peace and prayer Away from earth's unholy sod. The cloistered bowers of fragrant bloom, Where etherial light dispels the gloom That comes from the darlmess of the tomb, The Eden of hope-the garden of God.

The vintage on the Murray is turning out better than last year, while the strength of the mnust is reported to be considerably over the averag...
