The readers of the Hamilton papers will lieave a sigh ol relief. This is the first of September, and the retaliation of President Harrison goes into effect to-day on the Sault Ste. Mar ie canal. Canada btill lives. of Lis namesake in Ottawa dil, was ako considerate enough to help the province out by dying this year instead of last. No doubt these estimable gcntWnen have now no further need for large annual incomes, and their heirs can struggle along with what is left after Sir Oliver has taken his share. But all the Baine the incident goes to show the financial straits to which the province is brought, and that the good premier is constantly on the lookout for new sources of income. THINGS WORTH KNOWING. Mr. Gladstone was attacked yesterday by an unruly heifer. "We expect the Hamilton Times will find some way to lay this outrage at the door of the wicked Tories. Toronto is largely Ontario."1 Toronto Evening News. That is brief, hut wo suggest that It be amended to read Toronto is Ontario, which would probably express the sentiments of many of the leading citizens of Hog-town. St. Catharines lias a one-horse road connecting with the Michigan Central, but it dons not secure cheap freight rates to St. Catharines. Spectator. The N. C. It. may ho a one-horse road, but our contemporary is politely informed that it does secure cheap freight (and passenger) rates to and from this city. And, it will do the same for Hamilton when that city comes to its senses. The want of uniformity in the legislation regarding marriage and divorce in the United States causes much confusion. A divorce granted in Dakota may not he valid in New York, and so on. Congress cannot interpose, as it is prevented by the constitution from legislating on these subjects, but commissioners from tho States interested will confer with a view to move in the direction of more uniform laws by the Stale legislatures. The completion of the Niagara Falls tunnel on the American side is near at hand, and it is expected that early in 1303 power may be furnished. The ultimate capacity of the tunnel is to be 100,1 km) horse jiower for 21 hours. The rates announced for power are: $10 per horse power or more; $10.50 for 4,500 horse power; 111 for 4,003 horse power, and by ascending scale to (21 for SIX) licrse power, all for 21 hours a day if desi r. d. The tunnel on the Canadian side, also under construction by the same company, will need to le only one-tentli as long as the American tunnel to d-tel op an equal power. The power will probably lie electrically distributed. The age at which pupils are ullowcd to enter the public schools dliler considerably in the various States of the American Union. Of tho 13 States and Territories. 0 admit them at four years of age, 13 at five, 20 at six, 3 at seven, and 1 at eight. The States admitting them at four are Maine, Connecticut, Florida and Montana. The schools of Alabama ar,d North and South Dakota do not receive them till they are seven, and thoo of Texas exclude them till they are eight, and oniy then to attend till they are sixteen. Twenty-fire of tho States ar.d Territories allow pupils to attend the public schools till they arrive at tLe age of twenty-one. Of the remainder the " school ago terminates at twei:y in 9, at eighteen in 7, at sixteen in 5. and at fifteen in 3.
