Til#?, above caption i« the name of a
game at marbles, played by the young
lads of our town. As a public journal
ist wo feel forced to show up this game
in its true light, ns we see it. The
play is nothing less than gambling “in
embryo” and, if allowed to continue,
will result in anything but good to our
children. If we expect them to iill [
positions of usefulness in after years
we must look well to their morals
whilst in the formation state, other
wise they grow up addicted to vices
which render them unfit for positions
of trust, nnd ostracised from society.
Parents, you can’t be too careful in
training your children—mind now, we
did not say too strtct but too careful, for
we hold that overstrictness is rather
dangerous policy, tending to make
children restive and to sigh for the
day when they can shake off parental
ontliority nnd be their “own man.”
Now this “playin’ winnance” is, we
think, one of the many evils we should
strive to discountenance in our chil
dren, as it tends to cultivate a spirit
of avaricuusness in them, the general
result of which will be making gam
blers of many. The game has been
forbidden at the public school but is
still practised in our streets. Look
to it fathers and mothers.'
Mr Editor :
We are delighted to see the clean
face of your last issue; it speaks well
for the future. I have placed it on
die with my other gems, feeliug that
in time it will prove to be one. I am
pleased to see you go on with your
little sheet, independent of the 3lurs
and remarks made by those who set
themselves up for critics without a
knowledge of the principles of criti
cism. We hope you are uot too old to
remember that, “Tall oaks from little
acorns grow,” aud that the grand and
lofty Andes arc composed of small
grains of sand, that the vast canopy of
night is set with myriads of little
lights, which lend their feeble beams
to light the weary traveller on
his way. We will be delighted to
see it unfold its wiugs to an upward
flight and soar among the greatrr
lights of the Literary World. We
give it our best prayers, and will aid
in a pore tangible form.
If a man will not, in his own life,
make the most of his manhood and
good sence, and set forth his best pow
ers to take care of his family, and
benefit Immunity, he ought not expect
a happy home nor happiness hereaf-
tcr not at least till lie retrieves nnd
earns it. Earnest and untiring efforts
will bring all that man can claim—joy,
love, blessings, home and Heaven. The
death and sufferings of a l! the Christs
„v*r conceived, will not save one soul
who does not, by honest work, persist
ent effort aud a life of honesty save
itself. Personal effort, like waves of
the ocean, will spread and roll forever;
it is not in the powor of man to stop
it or to kill its effect It is our hum
ble intention, so far as our feeble ef
forts con go, to assist in carrying out
your plan of establishing another first-
class paper in our little “City by the
Sea," and hope to occupy' a small
niche m the mass of your periodical
Yottr venture is now before the
public, and whatever be your merits
or demerits, we hope all will give you
credit for an honest effort. You have
made your bow, and read your saluta
tory, now seize your pen—and to the
fight: make the little sheet the future
cricket of every hearth. More anon.

—We are informed by Mr. J. 0.
Moore, that on Sunday-night hist, his
vegetable garden was entered by some
person or persons, unknown, and a
small quantity of vegetables, such as
onions etc., stolen therefrom. It would
seem from this that these snealt-thieves
have begun their nocturnal depreda
tions quite early in the season, and
we would suggest to Mr. M. that, in
our opinion, the most effectual way of
preventing a repetition of the same
would be to “set” for these rascals and
whenever they are found inside his
enclosure after night-fall to give them
a cordial welcome in the shape of a
heavy charge of “blue whistlers” just
behind the bur of the ear.
