Who never runs her neighbors down
When she goes ont to tea.
She never gossips after church
Of dresses or of hats ;
She never meets the sewing school
And joins them in their spats.
She never beats a salesman down
Nor asks for pretty placquee:

Which do his patience tax.

At least they may to some

ten miles North.

The knowledge that these ocean gems
abounded in tropical fruits without
being able to do anything more than

and look at them was rather too
much after the Tantalus style to be
endured. Accordingly, in the hope
of attracting a bum-boat, I set our
colors, forgetful of the international
maritime regulation which prohibits
vessels showing their colors when off
a port unless desiring official assis
tance. Shortly after hoisting our flag
we discovered through our glasses, a
tiny boat pull off from Flores and
head towards us. We rejoiced in our
hearts and "got away with" a quan

was summoned on deck by the an
nouncement that the boat was along

for an exciting argument with the
supposed pomological pedlers over the
value of 'heir merchandise, which 1

of the exertion which they had been
obliged to make to reach us.

Millepsegate district, mining opera
tions were begun a few months ago,
by some gentlemen of Bridgewater,
N. S., and have been continued up to
the present time with encouraging
results. A shaft is being sunk at the
"Owen" mine cutting three distiuct
veins of quartz, measuring 5, 9, and
15 inches in width respectively, and
through which coarse free gold is plen
tifully disseminated. No machinery
has, as yet, been erected on this prop
erty, but we are informed by a gentle
man recently from a mine, that about
6 tons ef selected quartz taken from
the shaft had been crushed, and pro
duced no less than within a fraction
of 100 ounces of gold. If the quartz
was all rich as specimens from the
mine forwarded to this office, and said
to be fair average samples, such a re
sult might not unreasonably be expec
ted. On the opposite side of the lake,
about three-quarters of a mile from
the "Owen" mine, on a property
known as the "Birch Brook," several
openings, of about 8 feet in depth,
Dave been made at intervals on a few of the crew who made their wav iu

services of these indians, the govern

stores of presents to take hack to their
settlement and distribute among them.
feet. I he vein shows from 2 to 3
feet in width, and free geld is to be
seen in all of the pits. Work on this
property was suspended last autumn,
pending the erection of crushers and
other machinery in the spring, when
it is expected that mining operations
will be vigorously resumed, and it is
predicted that as greater depth is
reached at "Birch Brook" and the
"Owen" mines they will develop into
very valuable properties, capable of
yielding gold in large quantities at
small cost. It is not improbable that
the "Millepsegate Gold Field" will
rank high among the gold producing
districts of the Province of Nova
Scotia. Canadian Mining Review.

themselves "the Republican party in

short space of four yours, good Demo

been converted into Republicans.
This history of affairs over the border
should warn our friends who are in
clined to co-operate with the Republi
cans under the specious name of
"Liberalism," what their political end
will be. They will drift into the
camp which was once honored by the
presence, of the scalawag and of the
carpet-bagger. One of the leaders of
the scalaweg party in Virginia to
day is W. C. E!am the editor of
the Richmond Whig. And this is how
he wrote of that fraternity a few
years ago. The article is to be found
in the Southern "Magazine;" Editor
Elam then wrote : "Scalawags are
verminous, shabby, scabby, scrubby,
scurvy cattle. Therefore there is a
manifest fitness in calling the native
Southerner, of white complexion, who
adopts the politics of the Radical
party, a Scalawag. It is not so much
because he is for negro equality and
all that stuff, that he is.aiid should
be called a Scalawag, but because he
renounces all his previous professions
and practices, slinks from his own
color and kindred, and foregathers
with dirty freedmen, to gain whose
favor and votes he maligns all res
pectable citizens and incites colored
rabble -to all sorts of absurd
pretentions, or worse, to deeds of vio
lence and blood. I propose to give
here a brief biographical sketch of
the Scalawag an.f I shall take for my
purpose by no means the worst sort
of the drove.
It is to be understood that the
scalawag is chiefly detestable "be
