Association was held in the Council Chambers, Montrose- the Earl of Dalhousie in the chair. There v ere also piescnt Hon. C. Carnegie, M.P. ; Sir Thomas 'ladstone, Bart. ; Colonel Renuy Tailyour ; Major F. .' ott; Major Mackay ; Captain Blair Imrie ; Captain LI M-culea S-ott ; Captain Dempster ; Captain Herrick ; Captain It. H. Arkley ; Captain Kennedy Erskine ; IVovoat R ivege ; Mr Forteons of Lmriston ; Mr Taylor, Ctishnie; Capt.'.in DicLj..:, Arbroath: Dr Dickson, C "unty militia, . kc On the motion of Colonel REKSrr Tailyour the Earl o.' Dalhuusie was called to the chair. Colonei Tailyolr then read the Secretary's report for the paat year, which detailed the proceedings of thelast meeting, and showed thai-, although the prize list had been considerably reduced, the last Gathering had, nevertheless, been very successful. The decrease last yrar in the number of entries for certain competitions v. ,ts accounted for by the West of Scotland Rifle Association having its m-.-ctinf-s in the same week as i Lis Association ; bat regarding this mal-arrangement, liit reporl said that the Glasgow people had excused themselves by being ignorant of the arrangements of the Angus Ass i iaiiou. To prevent the recurrence of such a mistake, the report suggested that in future notice should be sent to ther of the days fixed for the Montrose Gathering. The report complained of a number of the companies in Angus and Mearns not associating, and gave ample credit and praise to the Edinburgh Committee and Edinburgh Corps for assisting them so much, and maintaining the connection. Tiie statement of accounts appended to the report showed A balance iu favour of the Association, after reserving a sum for contingent expenses to the time Of the Gathering in August, of 1G. The total amount oi revenue last year, iucluding 285 subscribed to clear oii the debt, was 2 odds. The meeting indicated their satisfaction at the state of the funds. Sir Thomas Gladstone, in a word, moved the adoption of the report. Captain Hebceles Scott seconded, and said ho was the more s-.itisli d in doing so, because he proposed last j that they should not hold another Gathering, without a guarantee for any deficit that might arise. Ills proposal was then lost by a large majority, and he was now glad to find he was wrong He believed that this desirahle iv-ult was mainly owing to the great exertions of Mr King, the Secretary, to whom they were due ill Jr thauks. (Applause.) The rep' rt was unanimously adopted THE GATHERING FOB 18G-L Lord D.w.HorsiE then said that, as the repot had been adopted, the next business before the meeting was whether there should be a Gathering this year ; and he could not help thinking that it would be a great pity .should tliey allow the Association to go down. It w ould not be to the credit of so large and important counties i Forfar and Kincardine to do so. The nature if the ground at their di posal, on which the rifle meet-in eould be carried out to perfection and with perfect safety, and to which there was excellent facilities for re. clung, was all that could he desired. They had always ireeived the mos C'.uial reception from the Magistrate of Montrose ; and, so far as he was aware, the fonnei me- ingsofthe Association had been conducted without a i-'igle accident. Cn ler these circumstances, -.iid acotog t! at tl.eir last meeting had come off so well, ;:" did not think they should allow the Gathering to eeaae. Fur himself, i e should be glad to continue his support, and would agoin give the prizes which he gave L.-: yer. (Ajpl'- is ) He had therefore great please in propost , '" a Gathering in 1804 be held, pplauae, Colonel Kenny Tailyour read a letter from Colonel mloch of Logie, promising his former subscription of ): ., and suggesting that an amalgamation might be made with the Aberdeen Asso iation. The meeting did not see any necessity for doing o. Lord Dalhousie the . v. d that the annual Gathering should be hel l on thtt lid, 3d, and 4th of August, which agreed t--.

A R Y g W1NDLE. Au old man, named James Dolan, the keeper of a provision shop in the village of Primatestown, count; of Meath, has been made the victim of a most extraordinary hoax, by which he has lost a siiin of 1 10, all the ca h he possessed in the world. A man, who gave his name as Morgan, and who was Laowu in the rural districts as a watchmaker, had tor some eight months past been carrying messages between Dolan, who had the reputation of being wealthy, and a young woman styling herself Miss Reilly, who, Morgan stated, lived at Douore, where hhe had eight or ten acres of land, which she was about to sell, and re. ide with an aunt at Ardee, in the county of Louth. About six weeks ago Morgan informed the old man that Miss Reilly had sold the farm, for which 6he had received 200, rnd had already gone to Ardee, after depositing the money in the bank ; that ehe wanted a steady staid man, and having heard that he (Dolan) was a good dealer, she believed they would act a wise part in putting themselves and their money together, and opening a shop in Ardee. On Tuesday week Morgan again paid Dolan a visit, and brought him the happy tilings that Miss Iieiliy had consented to meet him next day at TV ' -a, when all matters connected with tLo .....rriage were to be arranged. Miss Reilly had also requested that Dolan should bring all his money with him on the ooea&idn. Un Wednesday morning the old man barn eased the horse, and proceeded with Morgan on the ear to Drogheda, taking with him 110 and two days' provender for the horse. At Drogheda they met Miss Reilly, hi company of a young man who was understood to be a relative, and who on a previous occasion had paid a visit to Dolan at Primates-town. The meeting appeare 1 to be a very joyous one, at least on the part of Dolan, as the female was a iKHincing and rather handsome girl of 20 years of age. It would appear that several half-pints of whisky were consumed iu the course of a few hours' conversation ; and so fascinated had old Dolan become with Miss lleilly's appearance and agreeable conversation, that he took out tdl the cash, in notes and gold, threw it into her lap, and desired her to take care of it. Some time afterwards Dolan proceeded to prepare the horse and car for the journey to Ardee ; but when he returned lie found that the party had decamped, except the man Morgan, who aeemed to commissei ate Dolan's position very much, and assisted him in making 6eareh for them ab ut the place. Giving up all hopes of tracing the young couple, he returned to hi-; home, and gave information of the circumstances to the constabulary. No uch person as Miss Reilly or her aunt was known at Ardee, and all the tales previously told to Dolan fcuraed out to be fabrications. Freeman's Journal. GENERAL NEWS. Capital Punishment in Portugal. The Minister of Justice of Portugal laid before the Chamber of Deputies, in the sitting of the 11th, a bill decreeing the abolition of the punishment of death, which punishment the Government propose to maintain oi ly for military crimes, in the event of war with a foreign Power. Shookis.: Discovery at Sedcely. On Wednesday, a married woman, when engaged in drawing water from a well, discovered the entire body of an infant clumsily wrapped in a bundle, and with a large sand brick tightly fastened to the upper part of the child. The child, upon medical examination, was found to be a little over nine days old, and to have been iu the water not more than twenty-four hours. Suicide by a Hartlepool Ship Captain. Intelligence has been received at Hartlepool by the owners of the brig Jane and Anne, of Hartlepool, that Matthew Pearson, the captain of the said ship, had committed suicide at Gottenburg. He committed the rash act under the influence of drink. He was about forty years of age, and was a native of Whitby, whore his widow at present resides with three little ones. She has recently been confined of the third one. The Rights of Women. The Dublin Court of Queen's Bench decided on Tuesday that women have a right to vote for Town Commissioners. The Chief Justice stated the 22d section of the Towns Improvement Act clearly gave the right to vote to "every person of full age," duly qualified by property, without adding anything to indicate that "persons" meant males only. Women, therefore, had a right to vote under the Act. Mr Justice O'Brien, Mr Justice Hayes, and Mr Justice Fitzgerald concurred in this view of the law, and the last stated that he must not be understood as denying that ladies were entitled to sit as Town Commissioners as well as to vote for them. The process of voting has nothing in it repugnant to their habits. They have only to state for whom they vote, and answer one or two questions. Women vote for Poor-Law Guardians. The Townley Case. A few days ago the magistrates of the county of Derby addressed a second letter to the Home Secretary, complaining of tho maimer in which the certificate of Townley's insanity was got up. The reply to this communication (as briefly noticed in Friday's telegraph) was forwarded from the Home Office on Wednesday. Sir George Grey still contends that he had no option but to act upon the certificate laid before him. In consequence, however, of the complaints which had been made, he proposed to call upon the certifying magistrates to x;ilain the course they had takeu, and also for any observation they might wish to make on the assertion that Townley's removal was effected by tho agency of his solicitor and by the expenditure of money. He concluded by stating that if any magistrate could so wantonly and corruply abuse his power as to sign a false certificate, he ought at once to be removed from the Commission of the Peace. As to the suggested alteration of the law, it would not fail to receive consideration, but he would not discuss it in a letter. The Loss of the Gunboat Lively. A court- martial was held at Chatham on Wednesday, on board the Formidable, for the trial of Lieutenant W. Walsh and the surviving officers and crew of the gunboat Lively, for having lost their ship among the shoals on the north coast of the Netherlands, east of the island of Schiermonnick Oog, during the. hurricane which prevailed on the 22d December last. The Court examined Lieutenant-Commander Walsh, the engineer, gunner, and other witnesses, who showed that the Lively went to seek for the missing fishing vessel off the Dogger Bank and Belgian coast, and while so employed she encountered a fearful hurricane, which raged for two days. Although everything was done to save the ship she was ultimately driven ashore, and soon afterwards went to pieces. The Court, having heard Lieut. Walsh's defence, fully and honourably acquitted him, the officers, and the w-hele of the crew, at the same time expressing their opinion that everything had been done by them to save the ship. Captain Hall then handed Lieut. Walsh his sword, at the same time expressing the great pleasure he felt in doing so. The Leominstee Tragedy Death of the Woman. The poor woman Watkins, the victim of a cowardly and murderous attack at Hennor on Monday night, died on Tuesday evening last at the infirmary ward of the Union Wrorkhouse, Leominster. It has trati spired that deceased left her house at uhmish early on Monday morning, and proceeded to a place on Captain Stevenson's estate at Hennor, called the Strawberry Cottage, where she went thn .ugh a day's work at washing, a duty which she performed there periodically. She left the house for home at six o'clock in the evening. At about half-past six oV'lock, it appears a little girl heard cries of "Murder" proceeding from the direction where the body was found, and she informed her parents, but little notice was taken of the matter till the finding of the body. Near the spot .where the murder was committed there are marks as if some person had been walking backwards and forwards, and sometimes pausing, as if anxiously awaiting the arrival of a second peison. The deceased was well known to pass this spot on her way home on certain Monday evenings. There were also traces of the woman's toe marks in the bank near the spot, leading to the belief that a struggle had taken place. The bonnet worn by deceased on the night of the murder was afterwards found by the police near the hedge. It is evident that robbery was not the motive which pronqited the commitment of the crime, as the woman's pockets were untouched, and the contents all safe. The police have continued their exertions, but up to the present time have not succeeded in the apprehension of the murderer. Birmingham Pott. Fearful Death at a Bradford Stuff Warehouse. On Thursday night, a young man, about twenty -two years of age, named David Martin, in the employ of Messrs A. and S. Henry and Co., stuff merchants, of Bradford, met with his death iu a most dreadful manner. Messrs Henry's warehouse, like most establishments ot a similar class, is furnished with a hoist, worked by steam, and used for the transit of goods from one story of the building to another. The " well, " or cavity, in which the hoist works, passes through a stockroom on the third floor, in which the deceased was engaged, and is provided with two half doors, which slide up and down as occasion requires. The lower slide was in its usual place, and the deceased, who wished to communicate with some one below, was leaning over it f r the purpose of calling out, when the hoist, which he had not perceived was in motion, descended upon his head, which caught between it and the door, frightfully crushed, and his body thrown over into the hoist. The machine was stopped as soon as possible, and the body of the unfortunate young man taken out. Mr Smith, surgeon, was called in, but life was quite extinct, and the Ijody was conveyed to the Junction Inn, where it awaits the coroner's inquest. The deceased, who was the son of Mr Samuel Martin, stuff merchant, Bradford, had been married but a very short time, and had only been a fortnight in the employ of Messrs Henry. Obsequies of Archbishop Hughes. The remains of Archbishop Hughes were laid in state on Tuesday, at St Patrick's Cathedral. During the entire day, from five in the morning until the doors were closed at eight o'clock in the evening, the streets and avenues leading to the cathedral were thronged with pilgrims to the shrine of his grace, the late Archbishop of New York. On entering the church the visitors were required to pass up the centre aisle, passing the corpse, thence around in front of the altar, and so out by the side aisle. In the centre aisle, near the altar, is the catafalque, a platform covered with black cloth and crape, surmounted by a canopy of black and white cloth, the whole illuminated by six wax tapers. Upon this the body is laid, being, as yet, uncoffined. The corpse is dressed in the robes of office worn by the deceased in life. The under garment is the dalmatique a long, white robe of lawn; over this the cope and stole of red velvet, embroidered with gold and silver. On his head is placed the mitre of gold, red velvet, and white satin ; upon his wrists are the maniples of velvet, embroidered in gold. By the side of the body, at the right, is placed the golden crozier ; on the left, a massivegolden cross, and on his breast is the pictoral cross of silver. At his feet are two beautiful crosses, made of running pine and white japoni-cas. The face of the deceased appears as calm and life-like as if enjoying the repose of sleep, iustead of death. Da approaching the corpse, many oi me visitors knelt and said a short prayer; others, more ardent in their devotion, strove to touch some portion of the body or vestments ; others St??., if draIeryjof, catafalque, or even tried bUbon M0'088 ?1?Uag of the kte and Gloved bishop. Many had little crosses of wood, or brass or silver, that they sought to consecrate by bringing in contact with some of the suTroiindiris of thf revered remains The body will be exptfaed again to-day, and the funeral will take place to-morrow mormng, at ten o'clock, at St Patrick's CathedraL It is estimated by those officiating at the church that upwards of 20,000 came to view the remains yesterday, and it is expected that many more will go to-day. New York Times, Jan. 6. FREDERICK DOUGLASS ON THE PROSPECTS OF THE NEGRO. The following is an extract from a letter sent by Frederick Douglass to a friend in London, dated Rochester, U.S., Dec. 29th, 18G3 : " I never was listened to with such attention as now-My leading idea now before the people is, "No war but an abolition war; no peace hut an abolition peace." The Government and people still need line upon line, and precept upon precept. At Washington a few evenings ago, where I went to deliver two lectures in aid of the contrabands or freedmen, and where I raised more than one hundred dollars for them, the house was densely packed by white and coloured people, and the papers say that two thousand weut away unable to gain admission. Now, think of me in Washington, where, three years ago, I should have been murdered in ten minutes had I dared to open my mouth for uiy enslaved people While in Washington I was taken by Mr James Worniley over to the Virginia side, to visit the contraband villa "es on the estate of the rebel General Lee, know as Arlington Heights. All around were striking proofs of retribution Here we see the proud mansion of the rebel slaveholder occupied bv common soldiers and by his former slaves ; his fences in ruins ; his i;oble ancestral trees, the pride of generations, cut down ; his once beautifully winding lane, over which he rolled in pride and splendour, all cut up by the wheels of army waggons ; his formerly richly furnished parlours are now occupied by sold ers and the whole premises bears marks of desolation. I should liave been deeply sad over the ruin but for the thought that this was the reward of iniquity a righteous retribution a wise and necessary chastisement of crimes unrepented, perpetrated against the weak, the ignorant, and the defeuceless. I went to the gentleman's ' Smoke House,' there I saw dear little children, some of them nearly white, and possibly more nearly related to the General than he would be willing to own. They were too small to be taken south in his flight, and had beeu left on the place with a few old slaves, who were too old to be taken, and not wanted. The liitle chi'dren in the 'Smoke House,' were being taught to read. The ' Smoke House ' had become the school house, and the property of the pupils. Taking a book in my hand, I said to one little fellow, ' Can you spell where your book is opened T ' Yes, sir,' he answered. I pronounced 'abandon,' which was the first word in the column. He spelt it off with a look of triumph and pride that he could do it with such ease. Had the past participle been added, the word might be the crying word of the slave system at Arlington Heights. I tried to make a few encouraging remarks to these dear little children and their teachers, and left for the ' freedmen's vill vg,' about a mile from the mausion of GeueralLee, situated on the south part of his plantation. This plao i3 the temporary home for slave women, children, and ohl slaves, who were abandoned and deserSed by their masters on tho approach of the loyal ai my. Others, too, are hero who have made goodtheir escape, after having endured untold hardships and perils in their efforts to reach our lines. More than a thousand here have thus gained their freedom, and are beginning life with nothing but the few rigs upon their persons with which they made their escape. Of course they are in great destitution ; much has been don-3 for them, but they need much more. Regular religious exercises are held among them every Sunday, and now they have a day sehool established, from which much good may be expected. I wish you could see this school. When I was th -re there were a hundred children in it, the descendants of slaves, so held for many generations, going back more than two hundred years. The sight of these poor little children brought tears of joy, Badness, hope, and fear, and I know not what else. Three years ago to have taught these children in Virginia would have subjected the teacher to a heavy fine and to imprisonment. Now teachers and pupils are alike safe. I thought and felt much as I looked upon and listened to thoij blick children. I thought of the generations of the race which had preceded them, sent from time to eternity in the daik, and not even allowed to learn to read the name of Heaven ; I thought how much further these children might hive beeu advanced had their ancsstors enjoyed the privileges-now opening (Heaven grant that th y be not shu .) before tiem. The teachers (Mr and Mrs Simmons) kindly askad me to address the children. I complied, and sang two or three hymns with them. I enjoyed the interview more than I can express, and am soon to visit them again, also those a: Alexandria. But I am filling my letter with ' contrabands,' and indeed I might write a volume about them, if I had time, and you required it to deepen your intere-t in my long-enslaved people." S C 0 T L AND. Ex-Provost Home, Portobello, was entertained to a public dinner on Thursday evening. On Sabbath evening the Rev. W. W. Peyton preached his farewell sermon to the Free Church congregation Peterhead, to a crowded audience. On Wednesday evening he was presented with a purse of twenty-five sovereigns. Detention- of a Train. On Thursday morning it was discovered that, owing to the recent rapid alterations of frost and thaw, a part of the large embankment at Rafford had given way. The down train from Kingussie, and the next up train from Inverness were detained till the damage was repaired. Before 10 a.m. the line was clear, and trains running as usual. Inverness Advertiser. Sudden Death. On last Monday morning, Donald Mackenzie, a joiner, aged about 50 years, died suddenly at his own house at Drumin, near Bellad rum. Deceased attended church on the previous day. On Wednesday, at a meeting of the Commissioners of Supply of the County of Ross Sir Kenneth M'Kenzie in the chair it was resolved, by a majority of 8 to G, in compliance with the recommendation of Colonel Kinloch, to appoint two additional constables, so as to entitle the county to the benefits of the Government grant. The Hebring Fishing in Caithness. Continued Success. The quantity of herrings landed here this (Thursday) morning is nearly double that of any day sinee the season commenced. When we write there are 75 Caithness and Banffshire boats in the harbour, from which it is expected there will be delivered au average of 10 crans, or a total catch of 750 crans, the takes ranging from 3 to 30. Prices have in consequence slightly given way, and are from 15s to 16s 6d per cran, the quality being not equal to that of the fish brought ashore here last week. A good many are being cured, but the greater part will be despatched to-morrow by steamer, should the weather be favourable. There is a pretty strong southwesterly gale blowing, and it is doubtful if any boats will get out to-night. Yesterday the total catch was nearly 250 crans, some heavy shots having arrived after we were at the press. The coast stations were well fished yesterday, there being nearly 300 crans landed between Lybster and Dunbeath inclusive. Prices ranged from 13s to 14s Gd, and to-day there arc also considerable quantities landed. It is probable that there will be upwards of 1000 crans between Wick and Latheron parishes. The total catch on this coast to this date may therefore be quoted at not much short of 4000 crans. From one boat belonging to this place, that of James Small, about 100 crans have been landed within a few days. Northern Ensign. Ten Seamen sent Ten Weeks to Jail. In a J ustice of Peace Court at Greenock on Thursday, ten seamen of the crew of the new iron ship Loch-leveu Castle, were brought up on a complaint by Daniel Stewart, master of the ship, with the concurrence of Mr Daniel Maclean, Procurator-Fiscal of Court, charged with refusing to proceed to sea without reasonable cause. Mr Maclean said that on the previous day the captain had received a letter from Mr M 'Galium, writer, on behalf of Hansford and King, stating that thev held their contract to go in the- ship at an end, as "they considered their fives in danger from the large quantity of gun-p wder on board not properly secured, and owing to the ship being unseaworty, and unfit for the voyage." From the evidence it appeared that the vessel was new, and that this was her first vovage. The men entered to go to the East Indies" and back. The ship sailed on the 5th January, and on the 18th put back to the tail of the bank, having encountered severe weather. The ship was making water on the top sides. The ship was leaking considerably ; but a surveyor and a numlier of men had been put on board to discover and prevent further leakage. The men refused to do duty on the 19th ; and the captain reasoned with them, and said the vessel would be put in proper order ere she went to sea, but they were obdurate. The underwriters' surveyor deponed that he would not give the ship a certificate till she was found seaworthv. As t.n f.L i,4. there was gunpowder on board, it was proved that there was about ten tons in the ship, but it was properly stowed. The J ustices found the complaint established, and sentenced the men to be imprisoned for ten weeks, with hard labour. Serious Accident on the Midland Railway Works. An alarming accident occurred on Wednesday morning in Agar Town, which narrowly missed proving fatal to a number of workmen, and which destroyed six valuable horses. The great brewers of I3urton-on-Trent are forming immense stpres on the line of the new Midland Railway Extension line, and it appears to have been necessary for their purposes that three lofty brick arches, forming a sort of viaduct in that part of the town, should be removed. The workmen employed in the demolition very reprehensibly removed the "keyring" of one of the arches, with the intention of bringing down that arch wholesale. Their rash expernnent had more success than they bargained ZV wiole fell, and very narrowly made them the victims of their own temerity. The horse, killed were stabled under one of the arches DISTRICT NEWS. PERTH. The Late Duke of Athole. The funeral of this late distinguished nobleman takes place at Blair Castle to-day. The coffin which consists of a mahogany shell, next a lead coffin, and last of all a beautiful case made from polished oak, supposed to be nearly a thousand years old, and grown on the Athole estates was furnished by Messrs A. Robertson it Son, George Street, Perth. Yesterday forenoon, the coffin, previous to its removal, was placed in the shop in George Street, and was seen by a largo number both from town and country. The outer coffin, as we hava said, consisted of polished oak, was surmounted with a beautiful shield in sdver, on which is engraved the following inscription :-" Frederick Augustus Murray, Sixth Duke of Athole, kc, kc, kc. Born, 20th Sept., 1814 ; Died, 16th January, 1864." MEIGLE. Lecture. The fourth of our series of lectures was delivered here on Wednesday evening by the Rev. Mr Muir, IS'ewtyle. The subject was M Popular Mysteries." He divided it into three parts spiritualism, mesmerism, and phrenology. The first he in a masterly manner showed to be an absurdity and an imposition, quoting the authority of Lord Brougham, Principal Sir David Brewster, and Professor Faraday. The second he did not think ought to be practised, except in so far as it might be used in surgical cases. He did not approve of it being carried to such an extent as it generally is. The third he entered into very fully, approving of the division of the brain by phrenologists into three parts the moral, intellectual, and animal propensities. The lecture was very interesting. The audience was not large, owing to the inclemency of the evening. At the close, a hearty vote of thanks was given to the Rev. lecturer, and also to the chairman, David Pattullo. Eso,. Fullerton. COUPAR ANGUS. Sabbath School Entertainment. On Thursday evening, the ladies of the United Presbyterian congregation gave the Sabbath scholars their annual treat, which consisted of an excellent tea, with all the necessary accompaniments. The tea wa3 served in the area of the church, and seemed to give great satisfaction to the youngsters. After tea, the church was opened to the public, and addresses were delivered by the Rev. Mr Muir, Newtyle, ou M Wisdom Kev. Mr Robertson, Woodside, on " The Domestic Habits and Arrangements of the Orientals," which was illustrated by a number of diagrams; Rev. Mr Young, Kinclaven, on "Habit." William Wall ace, Esq., Hillgardens, gave rather n amusing sketch of his trip to the Great Exhibition of Paris. The congregational choir, conducted by Mr Will iam Stewart, gave variety to tbe meeting by singing some excellent pieces between the addresses. The usual votes of thanks brought the meeting to a close about ten o'clock. BRECHIN. The Earl of Dalhousie, along with Lidv Christian Maule, arrived at Brechin Castle on Wednesday. Serious Assault. On Wednesday night, David Hampton, flesher, and Ju7M M'Gmtk assaulted Thomas Cairncross, merchant, Stonehaven, in the City Road, Brechin, and with their fists and feet so maltreated him that his friend couid- not recomi-e him He was taken to the Alma Inn, where he remained insensible for a time, and though slightly recovered, he still lies in a very bad state. The two men were brought up at the Police Court on Thursday and remitted to the Fiscal. Postal Communication. At a special meeting of Town Council, held on Thursday, it was reselvedi on the motion of the Provost, to petition the Post-Master General to have the mail from London to the North keptm the old route instead of being carried by the Perth and Inverness Radway, lately opened. The Council were of opinion that the towns in the present route were of such importance as to warrant the continuance of the present system. Police Court.

Stephen's " Theatre of Arts. "-This popular er-Jertainmeut is still open, and is nightly visited by large audiences. The interest in it is unabat-d. The singing and dancing of the Misses Stephen, form a very attractive part of the proceedings. SUPPKR.-The employ belonging to the establishment of Mr David Fairweather, clothier and draper, were treated to an excellent supper by their respected empl -yer on the evening of Thursday last. Mr Fair-weather occupied the chair. Mr John Fairweather was croupier. After supper, the proceedings were enlivened by the singing of songs by several of the company ; and, altogether, the evening was spent in x harmonious and social manner. The company broke ap at an early hour all delighted with the kindness and affability of their employer. The" Closing of the Local Prisons. The Committee to whom the County Prison Board made a remit in regard to the re-opening of the local prisons, met iu Montrose on Monday Provost Savego (Convener), Pre-vost Lumgair, and Provost Guthrie, present. After consideration, Provost Savege was empowered to go to Edinburgh to have an interview with the Lord-Advocate on the subject, and to explain and. show his Lordship statistics and other data against the continued shutting up of the prisons. The Provost accordingly went to Edinburgh and had an interview with tho Lord-Advocate and Mr Hill Burton on Wednesday. His Loiiship received the deputation very kindly, and promised, we believe, to give every attention to the matter when it was brought before the Home Secretary. Lecture on Behalf of the John' Street Revd-INO Room. It is announced that the Rev. George Giliillan, of Dundee, is to lecture on Tuesdiy first in the Guild Hall, under the auspices of th-3 Jo'm Street Reading Society. Mr Gilfillan's subject is, t" The Signs of the Times" an important and pregnant topic and well suited to the lecturer. The rev. gentleman's name is, in itself, sufficient to draw together a good audience; but the object, we hope, will also have its influence, and that the house will be completely filled. Review. Friendlt Supper. Mr David Fairweather, draper and clothier, entertained his employes to supper on Thursday eveuing. He also occupied the chair, and Mr John Fairweather acted as croupier. After an excellent supper, a number of toasts, were given and warmly responded to ; and the proceedings of the evening were agreeably diversified by the singing of Mr Robert Gray and others. The party did not break up till early morning not, however, without expressing their thanks to Mr Fairweather for his kindness. Melancholy Di;ath of a Townsman. We copy the following account of the melancholy death of a townsman from 'the Daily Evening Express, of November 21, 18(53, published at Victoria, Vancouver Island : "Sad Accident at Koskeemo. On the 4th instant, Mr H. D. Munro, connected with the firm of Stewart & Co., met with a remarkable sudden death by the discharge of a gun in the hands of a friend. The unfortunate gentlemau who caused his death w.s on the best terms with the deceased, and has suffered intense distress at the calamity. He surrendered himself t justice and appeared thisinoruing before Mr Pembertoa. From the depositions taken in the Police Court we gather that the accident happened in the following manner : On the 3d iastant Mr iVfunro arrived with several others at Koskeemo. On the following day deceased was sitting by the fire in the house belonging to Stewart & Co., when his friend took from the hands of another person named W. R. H. Anderson a gun which he had just been oiHng to examine it. This, gentleman cocked the right barrel and replaced the haiamer upou the nipple, and was in the act of cocking the left barrel when it exploded, the charge entering deceased's body a little above the right breast. Mr Munro died instantaneously from the effects of the wound. His friends experienced the most poignant grief at the accident, and the body was placed underground in the best coffin they could construct. The party having then to return overland again to Fort Rupert, the shell was exhumed and tweuty Indians engaged to transport it. Owing to the difficulties they experienced iu the attempt, they were, however, compelled if) abandon all endeavours to convey their burden by the trail. It was then placed within a second shell, charcoal packed between, and will be forwarded to Victoria by the schooner Ross Newman when she returns. A coroner's inquest wUl be held upon the arrival of the corpse the unfortunate gentleman in whose hands the gun exploded having pr forma been required to furnish his recog-niaance to appear hereafter. Mr Munro leaves, a wife and three young children to mourn his loss." INVERKEITHING. New versus Auld Hansel Mondat. The auld style was held here on Monday last, but we must state that it was only by a very few. In this our ancient burgh we are happy to observe that the new style is taking precedence of the old, and the majority are apparently determined to observe tho " age in which we live ;" and we are assured that these few would shortly fall in if our more snlightened brethren in Duufermline would but only show thom an example, as it is apparently by that grea' c'.ty that they are to be ruled. Both the new and old styles have passed off quietly here, with the exception of a few cases of inebriation, but nothing in comparison to former years. Last week, Major W. L. Barton, who is residing at Elm Park, between Foyness and Limerick, shot with a punt gun the almost incredible number of 224 grey plovers at a single shot. Two years since the major shot 140 wild ducka at one shot with the same gun. DUNFERMLINE. Excu RSION3TS. No fewer than two thousand peeple left the railway station on the three holidays of Saturday, Monday, ami Tuesday. Curiosities of (Religious) literature. -A day or two ago awell dressed and apparently well-to-do stranger, entered one of our bookseller's shops and purchased a few dozen of tracts, with the simulated intention of distributing them among poor sinuers gratis. Besides this purchase, be bespoke a second supply to be ready for him on the Saturday before Hansel Monday. But before this took place the bookseller, in going home one evening, stumbled on an old lame sailor, stretched half-naked on the pavement, with a paper lantern beside him, along with a pair of crutches and one of the identical tracts which the well-dressed stranger had purchased from him a day or two before. On looking more closely he found that the old half -naked object before him was iu good truth his customer, and, of course, wondered. But there is no wonder about the matter. These gentry are as well limbed, and as well rigged too, as any commercial traveller that goes. They come by the train in full tog, carry their luggage to a coramra lodging-hoase, and when it grows dark, off goes the greatcoat, tweed trousers, hat, and boots, and on goe3 their professional toggery, and out they sally ou crutches, with paper lantern and a handful of tracts. " Poor old sailor, Gud bless ye ; lost the use of my legs by shipwreck ; come buy a tract from poor old Jack. And thus they make a livelihood, and an excellent livelihood, acting the part of the gentleman through the day, and of poor old Jack at night. The Past Year. Stands Dunfermline where it did this time last year? The answer is that it does stand nearly in the same position uow in the beginning of 1864 as in the beginning of 1863. If anything, there is a slight increase on the prosperous side of the account, but the increase is as yet one of expectation though of certain expectation, rather than one of actual possession. The foundation of another steam-weaving factory has been laid, that will prove itself the second of the town, the largest neat to that of St Leonard's. It will employ from 800 to 1000 hands. Anciently, a hand meant a male worker only ; but since the commencement of the factory system it is applied to both sexes without distinction, and of these 800 or 1000 a v;ry small percentage will be men. We cannot but hail this accession to the employment power of the town, although we would have much rather that it had embfaced the rougher and more workable sex aad left the lassies to the service that is purely and particularly their own. This is, however, a disputable subject, and is mor a question of feeling than reason. Time alone can shew the advantages or disadvantages of female labour. But, during the last year, the handlooro has not made an equal pace with the uteamloom. Thanks to the increase of trade, everybody is now employed nobody idle, except with their own consent. But wiih-this increase there is no intimation of a rise of wages-; they are at the same rate as they were immediately after the last reduction. The slackness consequent on the outbreak of the war in America was followed almost iustauter by sweeping reductions. In fact, every actual or even threatened decrease of trade has during the last thirty years, been accompanied with reductions ; and, owing to the scattered nature of the trade itself, the reductions have beeu submitted to- and continued till they are down from 20s to 7s 6d a-wek This is the way of the world muckle fortunes and little wages. Thus much towards the progress of the town in this line ; but it would be as well to give a parting word to our manufacturers. In an agricultural sense, they are over eroniing the soil. They don't see that human ingenuity and human invention are as cap-able of exhaustion as ground. Over crop anything in this world, and you will find a residue of exhaustion and sterility. The towns in North Holland and in-the Netherlands, where this system of over croppiug ia-continued reductions of wages prevailed during the hey-day of their trade, are uow nests of paupers, with- a aprinklin" of decayed families, the descendants of the manufacturing magnates of the days of old. We conclude with a word to the wise on this subject. ''Don't kill your goose." In other respects, the progiess of tbe town is doubtful or deceptive. The railway has goDe through its Parliamentary ordeal, aud has been brought up to such a point as to bo all but a reality. Much was expected from this schema. Dunfermbue was to have become the half-way housa between the South and the North ; a sort of resting place where the two ends of civilization piacticalEngLiudaudspecalatiTeScotland mighthave met and shakeu hands. It would have increased iu opulenceas a natural consequence, would have become an entrepot for the two ends of the island. And it would have been such. In 1832, when the number of voters in the five burghs was compared, Dunfermline had as many ten pounders as all the rest.. Now Dunfermline is down, and in a minority. Stirling, in consequence of the railways passing, is- now the leading burgh. The numbers of its ten pounders swamp all the rest. If Dunfermliue had been, looked at as it should have been, it would have kejt pace with its rival. But it appears that Ouufermliue is not to get a radway yet, even though the whole preliminary processes havo been gone through. The ghosts of old Gladstone and the Duke of Buccleuchare still frowning on the Queensferry line, and forbid it execution. So we must just submit, although no route to the north, since the days of Agricola, was more se!f-esident than that of the Queensferry. The probable loss of our railway will not entail any more ndsfortnne on Dunfermline, but it will prevent its expansion. In these days of progress, the town, or the man who- stands still, is going back. With regard to the other questions of 'the town, the prosi ect ,is rather cheering than otherwise ; and we conclude with the reflection with which we began, that Dunfermline stands nearly where it did, with a slight increase ou the prosperous side. Fatal Accidents at Lytham Two Persons Killed. Matthev, son of Mr Peter Walmsley, Lytham, was in company with two or three others on the beach on Tuesday night, and while running backwards fell with the back of his head on a sharp stone, indicting a deep incision which has resulted in the death of the unfortunate young man. The deceased, who died at three o'clock, on Wednesday morning, was about twenty-two years of age. Previous to the falling of the Lytham. lighthouse, the deceased assisted his father for a number of years in the management of the place. The second accident referred to occurred to a young man named Summer, a native of Preston. He was a sailor on board the Saxon, lying in Lytham Dock, and while in the act of domg something in the rigging, about seven o'clock on Wednesday morning, fell to the deck, receiving injuries which have resulted in death.
