YELLOW FEVER IN NEW ORLEANS, &c.
These papers give us further accounts of the ef-
fects of the Scourge of Yellow Fever in the South,
and although cool weather bad commenced and the
temperature on the 13th at New Orleans, was at 650
Fahrenheit, yet the record of deaths continued
fearful. Total of new cases on the 13th 385 against
554 on the 12th. The number of deaths 58, on the
previous day 57. The total number of cases since
the disease began 12,874, deaths 1,923.
THE USE OF QUININE.
In the Female Orphan Asylum, in charge of the
Sisters of Charity, they have 140 children, among
whom there have been 30 cases of yellow fever.
The ages of the children from 4 to 14 years. Only
one death has occurred. Quinine has not been
used there as a preventive.
The St. Vincent's Infants Orphan Asylum con.
tains 200 babies in the strictest sense o( the word.
It has sixty-five sick all doing well. No deaths
among the children. Sister Mary Agnesia, who is
in charge, attributes this to the fact that they have
done all their own nursing-and have avoided all
use of quinine.
In the Protestant Episcopal Church, Sister Rob-
erta in charge, there are 46 children from 4 to 15
years old, under her care. Here there had been
no sickness and no deaths have occurred this sum-
mer. Quinine has been used at this asylum regu-
larly this year as a preventive against fever. This
asylum is situated on Jackson street, near the river.
from the strict injunctions given regarding family
worship, the sabbath, divine service that the tend-
ency was strongly to Puritanism. Tha very first
clause in the instruction by the Governor and
Company of the city of London for the Plantation
of the Somer Islands" to Governor Tucker, 1616,
begins thus:-" And first because io nation or fa-
mily can prosper where the will of GOD is not obey-
ed we enjoin you principally and before all
things that you see the service of GOD performed."
In that very spirit are the Protestant Churches of
the Dominion of Canada (among whom a high place
indeed belongs to the Methodist Church represent-
ed here to-night by Revd. Mr. Moore), endeavour-
ing to lay the foundation of our Dominion that is
destined at some future day to become a great na-
There are four departments of Church work
to which I may briefly refer :
1. Sustentation of our ministry. At one time
in Upper Canada, now the Province of Ontario, the
various Churches received money from the Govern-
ment. About 23 years ago after a very exciting
conflict it was decided that all connection should
cease between Church and State. It did cease : and
I do not think anyone could be found to day who
could wish to see in Ontario a State paid Church.
For the sustentation of our 700 ministers we are
dependent on the free will offerings of our people,
these offerings come in with wonderful steadiness
and liberality. Last year,'ayear of great commerci-
al distress, our stipend fund amounted to upwards of
90,000, while the contributions to all the funds of
our Church amounted to nearly 200,000 or about
a million dollars. Experience has shown us that
there is nothing better to lean upon, for the support
of the Church than the presence and 'promises of
our Master and the tribute that comes from the
willing hearts of a people intelligent and loyal to
2. Home Mission work. This department of
our work is constantly growing on our hands. Into
the valley of the Saskatchewan last summer popu-
lation poured in at such a rate that in three months
they received there from various quarters a popu-
lation equal to the total population of your islands.
These settlers, many of whom are Presbyterians,
our Church tries to follow with the ordinances of
religion. Where there was'only one minister a few
years ago there is now a Presbytery of Manitoba
with some 16 ministers and a college.
3. French Evangelization. Those of youwho have
visited the quaint old city of Quebec remember the
plain of Abraham, and the pillar with the inscrip-
tion "Here died Wolf victorious." That famous
battle changed the destinies of North America.
The French discovered the St. Lawrence, named it
and explored the land to the head of Lake Superior
and the fountains of the Mississippi. They called
it New France (La nouvelle France), but by the
battle in which Wolfe fell, New France became New
Britain, and under the British crown came, then, a
Province holding fast till this day to the Romish
faith and speaking the French tongue. That Pro--
vince, the Province of Quebec is intensely Romish,
more so indeed than Italy or perhaps Spain. It is not
an easy task to set about preaching in that Province
the pure gospel. But by a remarkable providence'
GOD has placed in our hands instruments well fitted
to the work. Some years ago Mr. Chiniquy one of
the most popular priests that ever has been in Ca-
nada was converted to Protestantism, and amid diffi-
culties and not a few dangers (for he has often been
stoned) this fearless, and eloquent preacher has gone
about among his countrymen preaching salvation
by faith in Christ, and obedience to him, instead of
salvation by the Church and sacraments. Several'
other priests have come over since, so that now
through these, and through our college in Montre-
al some 40 agents are employed in preaching the
gospel in French. The results have been beyond
our expectation. .A French Church was opened last
year in Montreal costing 2,000, another in Quebec,
costing a like amount, and several others through-
out the country. *Th 'these are worshipping French
congregations which are increasing in spite of per-
secution. Before& the end of this century great
changes may be looked for witt he blessing of GOD
among the French of the Province of Quebec.
I have no time to refer to our fourth department
of work--Foreign Missions.
My object in addressing you these words is
to give you information about our Canadian Church
that you may feel a deeper interest in us, and give
us a place in your prayers. When I return to my
home I will remember with interest this meeting
and will tell our people in the far west,
of this congregation in our connection in the
far east. May. GoQ bless and prosper you.
At the request of Mr. Layton the Rev. Mr. Moore
came forward and said a few pointed and well
chosen words full of good feeling towards Canada,
his own country and the Presbyterian Church often
side by side with the Methodist Church in the battle
for truth and righteousness allover the world.
It was then intimated that a collection would be
taken up for the Foreign Missions of the Presbyter-
tan Church in Canada, which, we understand,
amounted to six pounds twelve shillings.
After singing, the benediction was pronounced
and the meeting separated.
Two Days Later from the United
States and Euroue.
Whether quinine has had anything to do with the
present perfect health of the children only the doc-
tors are competent to decide.
At the German Orphan Asylum, corner of Joseph-
ine and Laurel streets, there are upwards of 200
children, whose ages run from 2 to 15 years. They
have had 8 cases, 2 deaths; rest convalescing. No
At the Protestant Orphans' Home they have 125
children, boys and girls, from 1 to 20 years of age.
Not a case of fever. Quinine not used for any pur-
pose. Homcepathy is followed in this institution.
In an Official Report of Yellow Fever in the first

and though the width of the cyclone in many in-

residences, barns, stables, &c., were quickly demo-
lished. The James River at Lynchburg had risen
fifteen feet and continued to rise at the rate of 10
inches per hour causing great consternation. At
Cannelton fields have been swept of their crops.
A Sad Incident.-Some idea of the severity of the
tornado may be imagined when it is stated that Mrs.
Smith Carter, alarmed by the terrific roaring of the
wind, started from her house with her four child-
ren to seek refuge in the house of a neighbor. She
had the youngest child in her arms, and she boldly
faced the storm; but when she had barely gone a
few yards from her own door the, wind struck her
with much force, knocking her down and fatally
injuring the child which she bore in her arms, and
on which she was forced to fall. The poor woman
recovered herself, picked up the child, and, with
the others, succeeded in reaching her neighbor's
house, where, for the first time, she discovered the
injuries to her infant.
Devastation in the Woods.-At Short Pump, in
Hanover county, the tornado took a northwest di-
rection from the river, in a track of about one hun-
dred and twenty-five yards, sweeping everything in
its course. Trees were mowed'down in the forest as
though they had been cut down with some power-
ful scythe, leaving an avenue through the woods
wherever the cyclone raged as naked and bare of
undergrowth as the streets of a city, leaving nothing
but sweeping all before it. Trees were found half a
mile from where they stood, and every conceivable ar-
ticle of wearing apparel was picked up this morn-

Adjourned to Friday next, the 20th instant, at
THE COURSE OF THE GULF STREAM.
Captain Coffin gives details of thel Important Discovery
made by him.
The brig Dirigo which arrived down the bay from
Marseilles on Saturday, came up to the city yester-
day, and Capt. Coffin, whose discovery of an error
in the course of the Gulf Stream, as marked on the
charts of the North Atlantic, was mentioned briefly
in the Times of Sunday, was found at the office of
Messrs. F. Talbot & Co., No. 132 Front st. Capt.
Coffin is a venerable looking mariner, and has been
at sea since he was 13 years of age. A chart of the
North Atlantic Ocean, published by the United
States Government in 1877, and containing all the
corrections of the British, French and American
surveys, was produced, and he pointed out the fact
that there was a sweeping curve to the northward,
in the ordinary southern boundary of the Gulf Stream
from longitude 650 to 450 west. In his recent passage
the Capt. found himself in the Stream when 60 miles
south of its supposed limits in longitude 540. The
Stream was found to be the same distance south of
its marked boundary up to 570. From 540 to 570
x is about the centre of the curve set down on the
chart as extending from 650 to 450, and Captain
Coffin is quite confident that the Stream would not
extend 60 miles to the southward for 30 of longitude
only. It is his opinion that the curve mentioned
does not exist, but that the southern boundary of the
Stream runs in a straight line the entire distance
from 650 to 450, and he has marked it on his chart
accordingly. He observed the same fact in the
latter part of September two years ago, but made no
mention of it at the time. His recent experience
having shown that he was correct, he feels confident
that the charts are wrong. The Gulf Stream is apt
to vary its boundaries somewhat during heavy gales,
but in each of the instances mentioned the weather
was fine. It is quite possible, he thinks, that its
southern limits from 650 to 450 may have changed
since the last survey had been made. He can see,
on the other hand, no reason why the curve in its
boundaries between the pai,:lAl,; of longitude just
mentioned should exist. The Captain had aimed to
keep clear of the Stream in both instances as it
has the effect of driving back vessels bound west-
ward, This discovery, if correct, will prove an im-
portant one to shipmasters, as all vessels coming
from the Mediterranean by the middle passage-that
is between the parallels of latitude 300 and 40-are,
in danger of running into the Stream when they areas
led by the charts to imagine that they are 60 miles
to the south of it. In Winter venels from the
Meditbrranean faki the .iuthliru"pasbsge, but at all
other seasons of the year they take the northern or
the middle one.-New York Times, Sept. 10.
From the London Standard, August 21.
As soon as the Russian troops in the vicinity of
Constantinople shall have evacuated Tcataldja the
BJ ii-hi fleet at present in the Sea of Marmora
will move westwards to Gallipoli, When the
former quit Adrianople Admiral Hornby and his
ironclads will pass through the Dardanelles and
return to their okl moorings at Besika Bay. Such
is the tenor of the news from Constantinople on this
department of the Eastern Question, and the
announcement must recall to our minds a fact of
which many people have recently seemed to lose sight
altogether. Why is an imposing English squadron
in the Sea of Marmora? The answer is because a
menacing Russian army is within a short march
of the Ottoman capital. General Todlelhn has
just r(vi wed some fifty thousand troops aml Iw nty
batti'ries of artillery ; and this by no means represents
tl,, entire force at his disposal south of Adrianople.
What is this force doing in such a quarter? It was
hurried forward during the disingenuous prolongation
of the *'.tiali,.ns for an Armistice, on the chance and
in the hope that it might enter Constantinople. The
appearance of the British fleet within sight of San
Stefano put a sudden termination to that ambitious
dream. Cleared of its numerous but subordinate fea-
tures, the recent struggle in the East thus stands out
as a dexterous renewal ot Russia's designs on Con-
stantinople, baffled at the last moment by England's
fixed resolve that they shall never be executed. We
said yesterday that the Eastern Question is a religious
question, but Russia periodically raises the religious
question into a political question. It is quite certain
that Europe would never allow its peace to be broken
by the difficulty semi-barbarous Moslems and semi-
barbarous Christians experience in living peacefully
side by side, were it not that Russia, from time to ti-me,
exalts their local and intestine quarrels to the dignity
of a European problem in the pursuit of its own grasp-
ing projects There is always disturbance in the East;
and periodically there is an Eastern Question, because
once more Russian statesmen permit the fanaticism ot
the Russian people to believe that the time at last has
arrived for planting the Muscovite eagles on the
minarets of Saint Sophia. Looked at broadly, what
occurs on each fresh outburst of impatient ambition is
precisely what occurred on every previous exhibition of
the same disposition. Sooner or later England steps
in, and compels the disappointed invaders to return
home without their intended prey, Shallow people
have asserted that the policy of the Crimean War will
never hbe repeated. It has been repeated during the
present year before our very eyes ; and it would be re-
peated next year, if next year again Russia were to
fancy that the goal of her territorial hunger was within
The policy of the Crimea War was not to prop up
Turkey, but to foil Russia in its purpose of seizing
Byzantium, and shutting out the rest of the world from
the Black Sea, while obtaining for herself a free ad-
mission from the Euxine to the Mediterranean and
from the Mediterranean to the Euxine. That policy
was successfully asserted, and we are enjoying its
fruits at the present day. It is quite certain that 1877
would have witnessed no armed struggle between
Russia and Turkey, and a half a million human beings
would still be alive who have gone to feed the worms
or the vultures, but for Russian diplomacy having per-
suaded itself, thanks to the factious philanthropy of
the English Opposition and the too obvious hesitation
of the English Government, that this time no English
sword would intervene between the victor and the van-
quished. The anticipation was necessarily doomed to
disappointment. It matters nothing whether Rus-
sian beats Turk or Turk beats Russian, and it mat-
ters just as little whether France is active or passive.
England alone, if necessary, invariably intervenes
sooner or later to stop Russia's advance towards the
Golden Horn. Everybody knows that the attempt to
enter Constantinople at the close of last year would
have been followed by declaration of war on the partof
this country ; and the policy of the Crimean War would
have been carried out in practice as it was asserted
in theory when the British fleet steamed up the Darda-
nelles. Surely it is high time that the Russian Govern-
mentand the Russian people should convince themselves
of this fact, and desist henceforward from inflicting
unutterable misery upon hundreds of thousands of the
human race, and adding to their own domestic em-
barrassments in the pursuit of an object that must
never be achieved. There is probably not a Russian
in any rank of life who would not have protested
loudly against the policy which ended in the late at-
tack upon Turkey, had it been known beforehand that
all Russia would reap from the enterprise would be
what the Treaty of Berlin has given her. It was not
in order to obtain Kars and Batoum, or to erect Bulga-
ria north of the Balkans into an Autonomous Princi-
pality, that the Czar consented to waste his armies
and his treasure. Either to enter Constantinople, or
at least to assert an exclusive right for Russian ships
of war to pass through the Bosphorus and the Darda-
nelles, was the real motive and aim of the war.
Neither of those ends has been obtained; and thus the
war of last year, like the Crimean War, has been for
Russia a failure and a disappointment. The presence
of the British fleet in the Sea of Marmora is the sign
and measure of her more recent mortification. When
the fleet returns to Besika Bay it will be because the
baffled Muscovite legions are turning their backs on
the forbidden goal of their unwise hopes.
A consideration of these facts might be profitable
to some amongst us who, in view of present
troubles, are disposed to cry out that the Treaty of
Berlin is already seen to be a miserable failure.
We have not shown ourselves to be insensible
to the defects of that instrument, nor prone to
exaggerate the nature of the settlement it has offered
to Europe. The resistance Austria is encountering in
B.,-ni.t did not take us by surprise, neither are we
astonished at the repugnance of the Lazes to become
Russian subjects; and only to-day we publish a
letter from Constantinople in which our Correspon-
dent there points to these and other facts as indica-
tive not only of the imperfect character ofthe Berlin
Treaty, but of other dangers. There are, however,
as we have more than once indicated, two ways of
looking at that Treaty. We- may view it as an in-
strument for the defeat of Russian ambition, or'as
one for the permanent settlement of the Eastern
Question. Regarded in this second character, it can
evoke no enthusiasm in any circumspect breast. But
Englishmen, who necessarily think more of English
interests in the East than of any other circumstance
connected with it, can have no great ground of quar-
rel with it. It has at least staved off war, with all
its risks and penalties; while it leaves Russia, at the
end of a long, costly, and sanguinary struggle, as
completely baulked, as far as the main objects of that
struggle are concerned, as she was at the beginning
of it. Every humane person must regret that Bosnia
should still be the scene of bloodshed and devastation,
and that Roumelia should know no better protectors
than the Russian army and its cruel retinue of "Bul-
garians." But' these regrettable circumstances do
not assist Russia to obtain possession of Constanti-
nople, or bring her one jot nearer to the attainment
of a monopoly over the passage of the Bosphorus and
the Dardanelles. The treaty-maker who imagined
that he had bestowed perfect order and tranquillity
on the East of Europe would not be a statesman but
a-n'ideologue. It was enough for English statesmen,
without striking a blow, and at an expenditure of only
six millions sterling, to leave British interests in that
quarter of the globe, at least as secure as they were
before -Russia had spent a hundred millions and
sacrificed three hundred thousand Russian lives in
labouring to damage them. It is very desirable that
; this! fact to us the cardinal fact-of the Eastern
Qi Qs'tion should not be lost sight of at a moment
when it is. impossible to withhold our vision from
the various subordinate phenomena which indicate
the still unsettled condition of the East. It was Mr.
- Gladstone, not the English Government, .who under-
took to put everything to rights north of the Balkans,
south of the Balkans-everywhere in fact where re-
form and amelioration were needed. More reasons-
able statesmanship has to be content with doing its
best to induce ignorant and fanatical races to d. -'1st
from exterminating each other. The task is still
being performed, and in process of time some pro-
gress will, we may hope, be made. It is comforting
to reflect, meanwhile, that the British Fleet is still in
the Sea of Marmora and will not leave it till the
Russian troops, departing from the neighbourhood of
Constantinople, confess that they approached it in
EDGAR A. POE.
A San Franciscan adds one more Queer Story to the
innumerable number about the Author of The
From the San Francisco Chronicle, Aug. 31.
You say that Edgar Allen Poe did not die from
the effects of deliberate dissipation?" asked a
That is just what I mean, and I say further that
he died from the effects of deliberate murder."
This was a strange assertion; strange in being a
flat contradiction of a fact, or, otherwise, a theory,
recorded in detail in the history of American liter-
ature. The author of the assertion was a well-
known member of this city's advanced and invete-
rate Bohemia; a gentleman who has long since
retired from the active pursuits of his profession,
and spends his days in dreamy meditation-fre-
quenting one of the popular resorts of the craft, but
mingling little in the idle babble of the throng.
When drawn into conversation, it is generally to
correct some error from his inexhaustible mine of
reminiscence, and on such occasions his words are
few and precise.
"Then you know something of the poet and his
history, Doctor ?"
With a few others. I was one of his intimate
associates for years. Much that has been written
of him and regarding his death is false. Poe was
not what is called a periodical drunkard, holding
himself to spells of total sobriety and then giving
way to violent bouts of intemperance; but he was
a steady drinker, and when his means permitted he
would drink to excess. His habitual resort in
Baltimore was the widow Meagher's place. This
was an oyster stand and liquor bar on the city
front, corresponding in some respects with the
coffee shops in San Francisco. It was frequented
much by the printers and men engaged in the
shipping offices, andandked as a respectable place,
where parties could read the papers, enjoy a game
of cards, or engage in social conversation. Poe
was a great favorite with the old woman. You
would always see him sitting just behind the oyster
stand, and about as quiet and sociable as an oyster
himself. He went by the name of the Bard, and
v hen parties came into the shop it was 'Bard, come
up and take a nip,' or 'Bard, take a hand in this
game.' He was a sort of pensioner,on his acquaint-
ances, as far as drinks were concerned. Whenever
the old woman met with any incident or idea that
tickled her fancy she would ask Bard. to versify it.
Poe always complied, writing many a witty couplet
and at times poems of considerable length. Much
of his poetical work, quite as meritorious as some
by which his name was immortalized, was thus
frittered into obscurity. It was in this little shop
that Po3's attention was called to an advertisement
in a Philadelphia paper of a prize for a meritorious
story, and it was here that he composed his famous
'Gold Bug,' which took the prize. I heard him
read it before he sent it on to Philadelphia, and
when it was announced that his story was success-
ful, the Widow Meagher gave him the money to go
on and obtain the prize'."
But how about his death ?"
Poe had been shifting between Baltimore, Phi-
ladelphia and New York for several years. He
had been away from Baltimore about three months,
and turned up one evening at the widow's. I was
there when he came in. Bard bad been making a
little raise North, and it was drinks all around,
with repeat, until the crowd were down jolly. It
was the night before an election, and the party
started up-town. There were four of us, and we
had not gone half a dtzen squares before we were
nabbed by policemen, who were looking up voters
to coop.' It was the practice in those days to
seize people, whether drunk or sober, lock them up
until the polls were opened, and then march them
to every precinct in control of the party having the
'coop.' This. coop was in the rear of an engine
house on Calvert Street. It was part of the game
to stupefy the prisoners with drugged liquor. The
next day we were voted at 30 different places, and
over and over, it being as much as a man's life was
worth to rebel. Poe was so badly drugged that he
was carried on two or three rounds, and then the
gang said that it was no use trying to vote a dead
man any longer, so they shoved him into a cab and
sent him to the hospital to get him out of the way."
Well, he died from dissipation."
"Nothing of the kind. He died from laudanum
or some other poison that was forced on him in the
coop. He was in a dying condition while he was
being voted 20 or 30 times in Baltimore. The
story told by Griswold of his having been on a
week's spree and being picked up on the street is
all a lie. I saw him shoved into the cab myself."
Since the yellow fever began its ravages in the
Southwest, and the Howard Association has become
prominent as a reliever of suffering and asan agen-
cy in the cause of humanity, many persons have
naturally wished to learn something of the organi-
zation. The association came into prominence 25
years ago (18583) in New Orleans, when it and other
cities of the South were so cruelly afflicted with the
fever, and such horror and panic were excited that
husbands deserted their wives, parents their chil-
dren, and the ties of common humanity seemed
sundered. Napoleon B. Kneass, now of Philadel-
phia, but formerly a merchant in New Orleans,
says that the organization originated in his store,
among his clerks, especially two of them whose
mother was from San Domingo and had seen much
of the epidemic. These went about the city, hunted
up new cases and furnished the sufferers with medi-
cine prepared by her and found effective in Hayti.
From the clerks as a nucleus the association was
formed. Young men of wealth joined it, and adop-
ted the name Howard from the renowned English
philanthropist. They obtained medicines, nurses
and physicians, and established agencies in all the
towns and cities that had been or were likely to be
infected, binding themselves to act together at
every reappearance of the pestilence. The body
increased rapidly in numbers and means, and before
the civil war it was one of the richest benevolent
societies in this country. That bitter contest left
most of the members poor, and the association has
been crippled in its power to do good. Until re-
cently they never asked for aid ; but any contribu-
tions to the cause were received and distributed ac-
cording to.existing 'eed. They divide the town or
city into districts, to each of which members are
assigned, and when the disease reveals itself each
case is immediately reported to headquarters. The
Visiting Committee at once investigate the matter,
physicians and nurses are employed, and every-
thing done that can be done to relieve the patient.
Most of the nurses have been negroes who have
had the fever, and were not apt, therefore, to be
infected. There were, and there now are, espec-
ially, many volunteers, who receive no pay, the
Sisters of Charity being most zealous and devoted,
while members of different benevolent 'societies
have taken, and still take, an active part in the
noble work.-N. Y. Times, September 10.
BARBADOS ANI) THE COLONIAL OFFICE.
From the WTest Indian, August 23.
The following letter has been addressed to Mr.
Hill, Chairman of the West India Committee, by
direction of the Secretary of State, in reply to their
address on the affairs of Barbados, in reference to
the introduction of Government Nominees into the
To T. DANIEL HILL, Esq.,
19th July, 1878.
SIR,-I am directed by the Secretary of State to
acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 20th
ultimo, covering one signed by certain Proprietors,
Merchants, and others interested in the Island of
Barbados, odi the subject of the Bill providing for
two nominee Members in the House of Assembly
in that island.
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach desires me to observe,
that the arguments on which the Bill was rejected,
would appear to have been principally to the effect
that the Home 'Government was not deserving of
confidence, although the Bill neither gave nor pre-
pared the way for any new controlling power.
But Sir Michael Hicks-Beach does not think it
advisable to reiterate reasons which have already
been fully stated in support of the-necessity for
securing a proper representation of Government in
the House of Assembly, nor to enter into the ques-
tion of the extent to which the interests of the
labouring population are represented under the
present Constitution of Barbados, beyond express-
ing his regret that be is unable to concur in the
views expressed by the Memoralists.
I am, &c.,
R. H. MEADE.
Warm and showery as the Summer just closed
has been, and favorable as it would seem to pro-
ducts of the soil, fruits and vegetables here have
been, and are, as a rule, far from good. Peaches
are poorer than they have been for years. Those in
the market have been for the most part unripe, and
many are more or less decayed. Such as have looked
well and have brought high prices on the stands and
at the fruiterers have lacked flavor and lusciousness.
Melons (musk) are not what they usually are, or,
indeed, ought to be. They are deficient, so to speak,
in tone; they want richness and body, the best of
them, and the ordinary run are well-nigh tasteless.
Peas were sorry enough ; they had little succulence
or savor; they appeared too young at first, and,
when fairly matured, too old. Corn is by no means
satisfactory. It shows to advantage; the kernels
are full and promising, though they are apt to be
dry and insipid when tested by the palate. Toma-
toes,cormpared with most years, are failures. They
are afflicted with greenness, and the majority lack
the proper juiciness. The same may be said of
other fruits and vegetables which should have'been
excellent, judging by the weather. Farmers give'
different reasons for the shortcomings of the sea-
son ; but all admit that these have existed, and
exist. Outward signs have been opposed to the
facts. Nature would seem to be playing a trick
upon us- a game of skyey hypocrisy.-N. Y. Times,
