BULK nearly twice the amount of the interest and charges upon the English national debt. But this only shows a portion of the French burdens. There is talk of rebuilding the fortifications, reorganizing the army and strengthening the nary. The maintenance of the army and navy will inrolve tbe expenditure of perhaps twenty millions annually, for wmh time time to come, to say nothing of the cost of reconstructing the chain of fortifications. And besides thene ehaii.

there will bo tho cost of the civil a linini'tintion. Altogether the burdens will rea-h something like eighty millions of pound sterling per annum. This is, truly, a fearful load for any nation to bear upon its iniil-M'ies. A Hint in the Jlnxh.

I mean tho Reformatory, back of Toronto at Penetanguishene. It seems you have been in tho Reformatory belore, and you have been brought up without proper training. If you had the advantage ot parents you might perhaps have been a better boy, however, hero you are. and the question is, what is tho best to do with you? If you wore sent tojaolyou would come out again not one whit better, therefore it is desirablo to reform your character, and we will send you to the Iteforniatory.

It you do not behave yourself when you come out again, they will move judgment on tho other indictments that are held over you, and you will bo sent to tho Penitentiary. Tho sentence of tho court is that your ure to bo confined in tho Reformatory Prison of I'pper Canada l'ene-tanguiShene for two years on the first count, and one year on tho other one, in all three years.
