tempted to hoodwink, officer Walcott, at 12
o'clock lasjt night, by making a hood of a
box of cheese. - The lynx-eyed Walcott was
very inquisitorial as to the material com
posing that liood, that Hood wore. He de
ciafed it was 41 just the cheese." The officer
:thinking that he bought it when the owner
was out, as very few sales are made at
such a late hour, prevailed upon old boy
Gray of the monastic title, to adopt Hotel

Hard times go away to compo more."
Money is plenty. Every ones pockets and
hands are filled. I have walked about this
city to observe the condition ol the people.
Want and poverty is not here; wealth and
comfort abounds. Any one doubting this
assertion let , them . take a stroll through
Front street and witness the thousands
flocking to the fancy goods stores, especially
at Iligbee's, near Dock street. That store
is crowded all day, and at night he sells at
auction and the crowd is still greater. No
wonder, for he sells fine goods cheap.
Higbee is the pioneer in putting down high
prices. He has. the greatest stock of the
kind ever exhibited in this city : Crockery,
China, Glass Ware, and Toys in great va
riety. The Zoctropc Dancing figures: and
the Cross Baby arc curious indeed. Higbee
is one of the greatest auctioneers I ever
heard talk. Veritas.
Our Schools. We had the pleasure of
yisiting the44 Union Free School "last week,
and to-day paid a visit to the 44 Hemming
way School," at the North end of the city.
These two schools are under the charge
of Mis3 Amy M. ' Bradley, with au efficient
cojrps of seven teachers. ' There are about
three hundred and fifty pupils all taught
without money and without price. ?
The children have improved very much.
We can say without hesitation that these
schools are equal to any frqc schools iu the
IjJnited States, considering the time they
have beeu in existence.
We regret that - our good citizens' do not
take more interest - in Miss Bradley's work.
It is doing great good. Only think, three
hundred and fifty poor white children taken
out of the streets and made into good citi
zens! ,.V. , ; - , "
We learn that Mis3 Bradley intends giv
ing the children a Christmas Tree and oth
erwise adding to their happiness on Christ

rays of sunshine to the clouded lives of
these poor children, to whom happiness
cometh like 44 Angels visits." - .

those, who bring little children unto Him.

a sample of those beautiful oysters thus
On the 18th of November 1807, 1 selected

and in a position where the tide would sel
dom ebb sufficiently to leave them. They

April 18G8, when in an experimental sur
vey II noticed what appeared to be blisters
of water on the top shell of nearly all, and
some few spots of the same nature on the
decaying timbers. A few weeks later and
a limish crust had formed over the largest
excresences and the miniature exhibition of
an oyster was apparent. In, the month of
November, on the day twelve months from
the. date of my, first labor, I visited the
wreck and to what a transformation ! The
dead matter was rejuvenated with life: the
entire surface dotted with the living forms
ol 44 luscious bivalves," some of sufficient
size to tempt the appetite of the votary of
the half shell. To-day I have the pleasure
to invite your inspection and comparison of
the two years old from that feeble begin
ning of 1867. They will bear the test.
And now, sir, this astonishing development
is not from rare combinations of scientific
appliances, but is the natural result of i cir
cumstances that exist ; without the aid of
those progressive agencies of which the
orator at the Fair .Grounds spoke, viz:
steam, electricity and the press.
To what, you may ask, arc the hindran
ces to a successful venture of capital and
labor in this direction. I answer : we need
tub influence of the press to. bring the ideas
off practicaroperatiou. We need the agen
cy of steam to startle the mouldy elements
of stagnant water courses and give the em
phatic sequel of Carlyles grand problem
44 something to dp, and how to do it," and
with these we can leave to Agassiz arid Du
