Eagles' Island. '
A friend.who is one of the grey breads
ot the city, remarking upon our article
Dt vesterday in regard to Castle Ilavnes.
naa called our attention to another error
of frequent occurrence in regard to the
name of a certain locality in this vicini
Uy. which we hasten to correct. He
that the island immediately in
front of the city and which of late years
has been persistently called "Eagle1
Island should bo "Eagles' " Island. It
was formerly the i property of Mr.
Joseph Eagles and derives its name
from that gentleman. We plead guilty
of the fac: ol having ourselves unwit
tingly aided in extending the error
through the columns of the Review,
but we will endeavor to be more care
ful in the luture. Our friend says that
to call it "Eagle" Island indicates it as
a roosting place for that fabled bird ot
Jove whereas not one of that species
has eycr been known to build a nest
within its limits. It derives its name
from its former proprietor, as stated,
and should be called Eagles' Island and
never Eagle. The war has swept away

past ; let ns. at least, try to keen the old
