Mr. leogan, street contractor, has had rather a tough job before him the past month, in making passable the street that leads from Tionpe and running by McKay’w hill. In wet weather tho large volume of water that passes through what known as the “old golly,” destroyed the work done at that point so often that repairs on it were stopped three or fonr years ago, and the street remained im passable until Mr. Logan took the matter hand. The culvert is built of the best and heaviest kind of timber, well put together, and, we think,will stand the “rush of many waters” a long time to come.

Now I think him very nnkind to say the least of it, to come ont at tho eleventh hour and condemn the Societies that have so long since been organized in onr community. It looks muchly like he intended venting Ins spleen npontho last and recent organization ; if so, will he plesso turn his eye and behold their par sonage, a standing monument—the off spring of a once organized Sewing Socie ty—the industry and energy of a faithful few! Now, “ Wist” must know that onr churches and their interests are charitable institutions, and have to bo supported by voluntary contributions. While I agree with him that these Societies are gotten np by toe wealthier class of the commu nity, yet I maintain that such organiza tions are right and good in their aims, and do not knowingly take one hour's work from the laboring poor. The work we do wonld not be given to those whom Wist’’thinks will suffer for want of it. It is such work and contributed by such per sons as would otherwise do it themselves. Then why discourage the ladies in this noble work, or attempt to thwart their good designs and wise purposes ? They willingly sacrifice many home pleasures and interests, and tax their strength and energies to promote good results ; all of rhich, I will venture to say, is because they have not liberal hnsbands, fathers and brothers. I do not mean to say that they aro not liberal to their own indul gences, bnt stingy to their wives, sisters and daughters. I do not think I wonld hazard anything in saying that if the men wonld abandon their many extravagant pleasures and vice* and contribute the amount thus spent to their families, that they would no longer feel it was a neces sity to resort to Sewing Societies to make money to defray church expenses and be stow alms upon the indigent and super animated members of their churchen. If our men and women, young and old, were more industrious and economical churches and missions, at home and abroad, would not languish as they do for support. We need a reform, who will put the ball motion for this great and good work. Vindicator. Scene interior of.OourV-Hooae. Grot, Ketek mn, and TdbsaUAtt'ys, sitting to Roll Enter IS* Amendment.
