Act No. 7-increasing the salary of His
Honor tie Chief Justice-is a measure that
had long.been called for, but its.value has
been greatly marred-by having had affixed to
'it a duration clause-and especially a dura-
timr clause limiting its operation, to so. short
a term -as six years. It is most unwise ad
impolitic, and it is prejudicial to the best n-
terests of this community, to make the, salary
of His Honor fthe Chief Justice subject- to
frequent periodical revisions by the House ,of
Assembly. The. objections to such a course-
are: so -obvious that I trust on the next oc-
casion you will provide for the -pontinuance
of the Chief Justice's salary by a permanent
Act.. -

ersers, Judge Fitzgerald concluded his charge to
the jury at 12-20 p.m. He was especially severe on
the violence of leading members and paid agents of
the Land League. If the jury, he said, found all
the charges not made out, it would be their duty
to acquit the traversers; if, on the other hand, they
found the charges brought home to one of the tra-
versers, all, according to law, were equally guilty
in connection with this point he told the jury that
it was for the court to lay down the law, which, if
wrong, could be amended elsewhere. He asked the
jury to perform their duty with the courage spring-
ing from a desire to act conscientiously, without
fear or favor.
The jury, having asked for the documents, re-
tired to deliberate upon their verdict.
The jury did not return into court until sent for
by the Judges at 5 o'clock. The foreman then
said they had not agreed, nor were they likely to
agree. The jury again retired.
The jury were discharged at 74.5 o'clock, the
foreman stating that it was utterly impossible that
they could agree. A juror had previously stated
that they were 10 to 2, but the Judge said he could
only receive a unanimous verdict. Great excite-
ment prevailed, and it was heightened when the


Judge said that after thU exhibition of to-day in
court lie could nAt expect there would be a free and
unanimous verdict. Immense crowds were cheer-
ing outside the Court-hnuse. Mr. Parnell remain-
ed in court all day. He was loudly cheered on go-
ing to and returning from court.
A torch-light procession, with bands of music
awaited the return of Mi. Parnell from the court.
He left the city for London soon after the conclu-
sion of the trial.
As soon as the result (if the state trials became
known in Dungarvan, tle town was brilliantly il-
luminated, bands paraded the streets, mention of
the traversers' names were cheered and the sur-
rounding hills were ablaze for 20 miles.

THE GREAT STORM IN ENGLAND.
LoNDnx, January 20, 12 M.-With the partial
restoration of the telegraph wires prostrated by the
storm in England, *insutces of persons being over-
whelmed by the snow and frozen to death are re-
ported from various districts. Railway trains in
some cases had to be abandoned in the snow drifts,
where only the funnel of the engine is visible. The
damage done to the Dover Pier by the fury of the
sea amounts to 10,000. Solid masses of concrete
were scooped out by the waves, and stones weigh-
ing more than a ton werv washed away. The pier
at Southend, on the Thamces, opposite the mouth of
the Medway, was carried away by the ice, and a
boat which was aiding in the rescue of persons on
the pier was swamped and eight persons were
drowned.
The weather is now finer but colder.
A French vessel has sunk off Great Yarmouth
with the loss of twenty lives; a brig has stranded
at Gorleston with the loss of eight lives, and a bark
has been wrecked on the Suffolk coast with the loss
of ten lives.

STEAMSHIP COLLISION.
HALIFAX, N.S., Jan. 52.-thestemer Wid&ring-
ton, Bigg, master frIm ftor ama ,,
which arrived hbe Sunday morning for bunker coal,
having been su8 lied was proceeding to sea yester-
day morning. When off George's Island she was
run into by the steamer Canima, McLarren, mas-
ter, at present chartered by the Cromwel Line,
which was just coming in from New York. The
statements made by those on board both vessels are
very clear, and the accident seems to have been the
result of mistaken sigfials. The Canima does not
take a pilot. Captain McLarren and the firstofficer
were on deck when she was coming up the harbor
and they saw the lights of the Widdrington away
ahead, but corid not tell for some time whether or
not they were those of a Uteamer, as just coming in
from the sea the Widdrington's light appearedcon-
fused with those ot The city. When near George's
Island they saw the steamer distinctly, and coming
abreast of theldand she was right ahead. The Cani.
ma was at that time as close to the Island as it was
safe to go, and thought that the Widdrinton would
pass her on the Halifax side and proceed out to
sea; but JO"lben she gave two whistles, which is
the e signal of an intention to go to star-
Ihuj#. Thb anima answered with two whistles,
.aueitaot r intention also to go to starboard and
allow the' ,ddrington to take the side of the chan-
nel next the Islands The Canima was coming up
very slowly, and consequently could not answer her
helm quick k; but just when she came about they
saw that tb Widdrington, which appeared to be
under a ltty good head of steam, had quickly
rounded to ort and now lay right across their track
heading to d the city. As soon as this was per-
ceived the (rnima reversed her engines under full
speed and (ted her helm; but before she could
lose, her hnway she ran into the Widdrington
about 'hmifa The Canima rebounded astern be-
ing at fhUNqeed, and the Widdrington proceeded
obliquely towardd the city shore, going into the Gas
Company's wharf. The Canimna came on and en-
tered Wo & Co.'s wharf. The opinion on board
the Caima i s to the cause of the collision is thai
the Widdrington ported after giving the signal tc
starboard. The Canima had no room to port, she
was so close to the Island. The Canima had her
stem twisted and a few bow plates started, but be.-
yond this sustained no very serious damage.
|0tGE TO THE WIDDRINGTON.
The Wldrington ran into the gas wharf with s
crash that quight have been heard halt a mile off,
She was fotud with her bow two or three yards into
the wharf and apparently sinking astern. On the
port side the sound ofrushing water was to be heard,
and about amidships the deck was covered. She


was listed to port, and consequently her starboard
side was higher on this side, The Canima is libelled
for $100,000, and the Widdrington for $7000.

The Society held its second annual meeting at
the Masonic Hall on Friday last, and, considering
the inclemency of the weather, there was a fair
attendance of the members.
The Report of the Committee shewed that dur-
ing the past year the number of members had in-
creased to eighty-five, and six new members have
been elected since the Report was made up. One
death took place during the year, and the widow
of the deceased member received the sum of 16 4/,
there having been eighty-one members at the time.
In order to secure this benefit to his widow the de.

received such a benefit from it that I have since re-
commended it to several who were suffering as I
was, and with a good result, and I cannot let this
opportunity of your second visit to this city go
by without thanking you very much for recommend-
ing me to try the INDIAXN BLOOD SYRUP.
Yours very truly,
GEO. LOVEYS, lumber merchant,

PAIN IN THE BACK, LUNGS, AND SHOULD-
ERS.
ToRONTO, April 21st, 1880.
Dr. Clark Johnson:
DearSir,-I have had a pain in the small of my
back, also through my lungs and shoulders for more
than three years; I have also had liver complaint
and dyspepsia. I have tried doctors' and other me-
dicine, I ut never received any relief until my atten-
tion was called to your valuable INDIAN BLOOD.
PURIFIER; after its use a short time, I can say
that I have felt Netter and more -able to do my work
t Ian I have for the last two years.
J. G. AMEY,
77 Richmond Street, West.
NERVOUS DISEASES.
I was troubled with derangement of the nervous
system. I was attended with by one of the best
Doctors in this part of the country, but obtained no
relief. Your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP relieved
me at once. I really do not think any one in ill-
health using it can fail to receive great benefit.
MRS. JOHNSON.

(eived great benefit therefrom. I can recommend it
to all sufferers.

'tie of your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP and I do not
hesitate to say that it saved my life. I am com-
pletely cured, aild feeillike a new man. Lans week
my son was takeq,+igck with severe headache, and a
few doses of youth vuluahble medicine cured him.

A REMARKABLE CURE.
Kelvin, Brant County, Ontario.
DIear Sir,--In September. 1865, my wife had been
under doctor's- treatmEnt two years, and they said
she had heart disease. She was at that time so
weak she could not stand, and I had to carry her
daily from her bed to the stove, and back again as
soon as the bed was made. She had used your
INDI \N BLOOD SYRUP but a short timthe when
she began to walk again, and has not kept her bed a
day since. It also cuied my daughter of chills and
ever.
