For, tw assured, one way or other there was r.iwavs a little bird that kept bringing me the news. And that little bird knew that there was a cord in my heart that it touched, and that it would reanond more than anv other that coald be tourhwf It was that cord that linked me with the temperance association [Applause ] Therefore that little bird never failed to say * word or two with regard to the temperance association, and all it* workingi, and plana.and arrangement* I have therefore to congratulate yon. as I do myself, at finding vou assembled in such large numbers; and only to say I trust vou will continue to prove to every one, what y< ur own experience of temperance has made yon teel. that It is the holiest and beat rause, and based upon religion, and kept free from all the worldltnesa anil v?i-? worldly Khrnei. and plana and arrangements of politics, or anything else that can interfere with what ia holy and what la good. Aa long aa that it the case, that we hold to the one cause, and look npon that as the end to be attained and to be abstained, so long will you have the blessing increased dally, wblrh has been a comfort to you for many years already; and so long will we hope that there will be at least In this community a l.ai.d of men who mav be hplH fnrth ? ? hand of good, lawful, solid. loyal citizens, arid consistent member* of their church?a credit to themselves and a credit to that holy church which alwavs feels itself proud to behold amongst her children those who are able to reach to the highest c ids of religion, and to hold over themselves that monl restraint, and to exhibit to the world that courage, that fortitude of purpose that enables tr.rm to tleer clear of all danger and temptation, aiid conduct themselves in a manner becoming men and Christians The speaker then proceeded to give an InterestI ;nf ir/Annt nf win* K* *??* __ uau n.mmru ainre lie had bn-i a resident of the great city New York.

A Mkert Timb ?David Shea.

The prisoners were both bloody and braised, and g*ve evidence of having been in a hard fight But although they were restrained from light ng, their tongue* could not be control. ed; they went on at a rapid rate, not caring what they said, until the Squire, managing to catch their attention, informed them that they must give bail for court or go to jail. This sentence paralysed their tongnes for a moment, and their astonishment was amusing The justice, tired of their company, committed Healy to jail, and Malone gave bail Officer King, in order to et'.le a disputed point relative to the duty of citizens to ass ?t an olBcer when called upon, intends j-rcser.tlng a few who were present to the grand iry, we hear If so, when officers go to artest d-?penite men after the case is decided, tne i-uuing crowds will be meager, comparatively.

The agriculturists of all tbe rc^ioa around will flud a better market at ineir aocrs itian anywhere wise, both for buying and selling.
