Although the energetic, iftartly, steps taken by the Government have had :1 effect upon the Leaguers and preclude the possibility of any thing like a general rising, crime is still ramp-int in the rural districts, very disheartening and an uneasy feeling naturally exists among the class frt'un which the victims are selected. Still. the uiithorities are doing their best to stamp out the man- il'estatious ofthe spirit that unfortunate- ly prevails, and on Tuesday last no 108s than twenty persons were arrested under the lately [lilS‘iU'l Coercion Act, the first being JoSeph B. Walsh, of Cnstlebur, a merchant pt‘.‘miittetitly identified with the Lind 11"“1116 movement. The charges on which the arrests were made are " intimidation, boycotting and in- citing to murder and other acts of vio. lcticc, " which crimes have become so common that Mr. Smyth, the Home Rule member of l’arliatnemt for Tip- pn-ary, has rcl'usud to attend a meeting of the Land Leuguers, with whom he has beet-me disgusted, declaring that their policy is ” stupid and irrational ", and that, it has " sneriliccd a just cause and dishonmireil the country. " 'Ihe Trent Valley Canal. Though it is not in our power to make any \‘nlttnbln additions to Trent Valley Canal literature. we keep a sharp look-out. for what may be written by others in reference to the pt-ej ‘02; and. knmvin: the craving of our readers for news on the all important topic, we are always ready to transfer to our columns any information likely to appease it. We note. thereforey with pleasure that Mr. J. 11. Brock. of I’etct‘borough, has written to the Globca letter in which he brings forward a new and strong ar- gument in favour of the speedy prosecu- (ion of the Trent Valley scheme. For -ome tim- past there. has been in pro- :rnss a discussion as to the feasibility .l' lowering the high-water level of Lake Simone. the object being to reclaim a 'ttl‘;_'t' art-:1 of very valuable land at the nuth end of the lab“. which is inundato ed hv the spiin: freshets and remains snlum-rzed durng a portion of every year, and to do away with the sickness arising from the malaria thus caustd 'l‘he desirability of attaining these ends has b»cn so strml‘JlV urged that an up poll to the Provincial treasury has been (.lkutl of; but. Mr. Brock showsâ€"by a chain of reasoning which we need not reproduce here. btit which appears, to be without a {luv-that the construction of the Trent Valley Canal would pre- vent the waters of Lake Simcw from ever t'i~in: to no objectionable height, and thit. therefore. the. reclamation of the. " fetttlo belt " and the restoration to health ol't'o‘ fever-smitten occupants ol the lands adj-lining .the Holland marsh can be effected without the expenditure at a dollar ot Provincial money. If Mr. Br- ck enu estub Hi this point to the >:ll~ islltcliun til. the nullilulltll UI11'CI‘I1111.‘III. and prove that they can thus kiil twi- lirze birds with one caonparativt-lv very smill stone. it will be a fresh and pow- erlnl inc-'ttlivc to them to at once pro- ceed with no undertakiu: which they iii iv h- said to 11 m.- protni~cd to engage inpflttd which they could tint. now re- pudiate. it they contemplated so doing, without giving rise to intense and wide~ lvsprvad clissntisliictiou. When the, Trent Valli-4v Canal shall have become a {lit turmoil“, in good share of the credit -of having brought it to piss will be due 3 to the people of l'eterborough, and not- ’:ihiy to our eonfrere the Review, who from Ihe first has done its very best to | Loop the proj ct below the people. and ,the lGoverniimat. Indeed. we arolar l from sure whether the Simone Lake ar- i :uon-ot so ablv elaborated by Mr. Brock l i b l l l was first a ttaneed by that gentleman or by the Refine; but. never mind-Mr. “tuck. at any rate, boldly bearded the I (italic.- in its den. and our cuttemporary 5 ha. :atlwred so many laurels in connec- tion with the Trent.

Resentatiou. One of those interesting events which ‘ Blessed: him that gives and him that taken 1 was celebrated on Wednesday evening of last week by the Methodist boogietzation of Bethel church, Bobcayueou circuit. A social tea-meeting had been unnouucr ed to take place, and, as is usual in that neighbou hood, was enthusiastically susâ€" taiued both as to the number who were present and the quantity and quality of the provisions furnished. When full justice had been done to the wants of the inner man. Alex'r Ellis, E~q., was called to the chair. He at once intro- duced a pleasant surprise to some, at 5 least. who were present by uncovering a magnificent. set of harness, valued at forty dollars. which‘he presented to the Rev. Mr. Smiley. as also a handsome sum of money, the entire proceeds of the social, to Mrs. Smiley. The following is the address that accompanied the presentation : 1 Rev. um Dun BROTHER,â€" As the time is fast approaching when you will be called in the order ofProv- idence to remove from among us, you will allow me, in the name and on behnlt of this congregation to present you With this slight token of our appreciation of your labours in our midst, and to testify, at the same time, to the unswerving fidelity with which you have preached the gospel of Christ. While we know that you have been greatly concerned because you have not. seen more fruit of your ministry, we would encourage yoit to hope that the seed, being good seed, W111 yet bring forth good fruit; and even though the harvest he reaped by another, he that soweth and he that reupetb will yet be enabled to rejoice together. We hope you will not measure our love and esteem for you by the intrinsic value of this article, as it is entirely inadequate for such an cx~ pression. But we venture to hope that. in days to come and on other fields of toil, when your eyes rest upon this object which we. now present, you will remember the days and friends of old and give us a con- tinued interest in your prayers. This purse you will allow me to present to Mrs. Smiley on bt-halfof the ladies of the congregation, who, while regretting that her circumstances have prevented her from being a frequent visitor among them, re- j ice to know that among those who are within reach of her influence she sustains so high a character as a. christian woman and zealous worker for the church. You will accept our best wishes for your future welfare and our earnest prayers that, on ev- ery subsequent field of labour which you may occupy, God will bless your united 1a- hours abundantly. Signed on behalf of committee, ALEX. ELLIS. The Rev. Mr. Smiley made a suita- ble reply, after which very earnest and practical addresses were delivered by the Revs. W. W. Leech and M r. Freed, of Fcnelon Falls, interspersed with choice selections by the choir. The usu- al votes of thanks to the speakers, the chairman, the choir and the lady com- mittee, followed by the benediction, brought one of the most pleasant and profitable evenings ever spent in that neighbourhood to a close.

" ?â€"_____....__.__.___ ‘c‘tfintasstatiw“ To the Editor of (It: Fertelou Fella Gazelle. Dun. Sin: . A great deal of dissatisfaction having been expressed at the decision of the judges in the last heat between Maggie S. and Maggie May,you will oblige by pttblislh ing the following opinion from the Mail, handed to me by a person who doubts the correcting of the decision of the judges and wrote for an opinion. The decision of the judges was that because Maggot May broke and run under tho wire, the fact of her running under the wire lost her the first place iii the hunt. The illm'l'a decision on that point, taken from the rules govern- ing trotting associations, isâ€"“ That a break at or near the wire is subject to the same penalty as a break on any other part of the track." The judges have [terror to let a horse back doublo the distance it gains in each and every break. In this can it was not. claimed that Magqu May gained anything by breaking, bttt ruled that be~ cause she broke and run under the wire the lost. the heat. As far as honest trotting went Maggie May Was entitled to the heat, and only on the point given against her by tho judges could she haVu lost it. By pub- lishing the abch yott will not only confer a favuuron the public who witnestrd the race, and will now be able to judge whethv- er the general opinion that Maggie May did not get fair play is correct or not, but; will serve as a. guide l'orjudgea who do not: know the rules governing trotting assault- tions in future races.
