On Sunday . morning, March the 18th, Mr. Scurfe the Bush Missionary dolivered a vory instructive address to a lurga congregation of all sects, who rojoicod nt tho opportunity oifered them. In tho afternoon tho Rev. Hugh. Livingstone preached to a largo attendance.

In the evening the Bush Missionary again preached at the residence of Mr. Fitzpatrick, when sovoral persons had to stand outsido for tho 'want of room.

Something About Glass Eyes. A novel exhibit in the German aoction off the exposition main building is a large collection of artificial eyes, representing all sizes and shapes, from tho pale blue to tho black and gray. A careful examination fails to discover any that aro green, thus setting at rest forever tho conundrum, " Do you seo any green in my eye ?" For it follows if there are any green eyes among the people they would have found their counterpart in tho artificial. Judging from tho large stock of eyes on exhibition, the btainess must be a good one in the Old World. Taking for granted that one person in every 5,000 in the Centennial is the possessor of a glass eye, tho number thus far would- amount to an army of about 1,000.
