The Rev. J. V. Milligau delivered an
earnest and eloquent address, showing
that the association, composed as it is
of members of all evangelical creeds,
unsectarian and undenominational,
was engaged in a grand work, and was
calculated often to exert a good in
fluence over those whom the church
sometimes cannot reach. He stated
that its object aud design being an At

the young men of our city, it nugh

In. something written we have an
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a genera! disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as
Imys of niaturer years, to enlighten
and Moss the world with their pro
found knowledge of the horse and his
history. Our 1hmKs and newspapers
are full of this kiwi of literature, and
it varies in style from the production
of the child at school, commencing
with: The horse has four legs and a
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of the
scholar when he quotes from Jeb: That
his neck is clothed with thunder and
the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
He smelleth the battle afar off, the
thunder of the captains and the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child at his first school
composition, and the professional
literature, we have every grade of pre
tention, and each professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this nineteenth
century, we begin to look for some
thing better in this department of
knowledge from those who assume to
instruct" And it is to be found in

By a recent postal decision men
can actually make money by getting
their bills and statements of accounts
printed. Statements of accounts and
bills of sale when made out on paper
having printed headings, can be sent
by mail for one cent, if the envelope
is left unsealed; whereas, if it is made
out on unprinted paper, it will cost
three cents. Thus by patronizing The

every bill or statement that is sent out
