ALEXANDRA FBEE. LIBRARY. (To tlwc Editor of ilit Standard.) Sn,-Ploase allow mo a word with reference to a paragraph in your last issue. It was thorein stated that a resident had thought fit to appeal to the press against my alleged turning out of his boy from the Publio Library. In the first place, I deny having done so upon that or any other occasion; secondly, I admit I ought to have done so º and lastly, I will do so in future. Some mnonths ago complaints were made to the committee by several people that they wore unable to obtain seats on account of their being all occupied by small boys. This being the ease, a resolution was passed that no children tinder 14 be admitted, printed notices of which rule may be seen by the indignant parent any time at the Shire Hall.

Then, whenever he thoug,,ht of Clo ehette, the olt evil fieilings towarda Jacques took possession of him, and he began to wish a1d almost pray that the very next cannon ball or bullet coming in that direction would put an end to the existence of his quondam friend and rival. However, his evil wishes were not gratified, for Jicques distinguished himself greiatly, and seemed to bear a charmed life. He had already risen to the rank of corporal, nnd was in a fair way to further promotion, for his courageous fortitude on several occasions had brought him under the favourable notice of his colonel. About this time, Fortune, the fickle jade, began to desert her chosen votary, Napoleon, who found his path to Moscow not quite so smooth as he had imagined. It is tree he reachedl it ; but what greeted him on his arrival 'l A burning city in the very Lenrt of a hostile country ; his supplies and com mounications entirely out off; inveter:te en...

We pointed out a few weeks ago that England's position in this matter was a singularly proud and satisfactory one. By the skill and ability of her loeading statesmen, and the support given to their action by the vast majority of press and people, she has forced her way to the front, and compelled the autocrat of all the Russias to plause in his design of riding rough-shod over Turkey, and dividing that country bet...
