MR. FKANCIS GILMORE has returned from Montreal, having recover- ed from the ailment which necessitated his temporary absence. THAT machine should not be put up so near the merry-go-round, you quite a number of at- tempted run aways on the part of horses have already resulted from it. Ontario, from outly- ing sections of the Province they came, and meeting the old stand- byes of the city, made a pretty good muster of the 1st Ontario Rifles yesterdav. RIFLE men have been chosen for a match between the military and civilians, and the match will come off shortly. Andgthat reminds us, why is not the range put into operative order THE election bills for the last general election are now being paid in this singu- lar manner. A portion only of each bill is allowed, and a per cencage, only, of such allowance is now paid. FELL last night a drunken man named Lynn, in making erratic they had so good a band among them. The procession moved down Main Street and to the charming grove of Mr. Ran- nerman, near St. John's Cathedral, to which place it was followed by numbers of citizens in carriages. The spread, provided by Mr. Joseph--Devlin, af Eureka House, was extremely good arid evinced a desire to provide am- ple quantity as well as good quality. Af- ter doing ample justice to the" good Stewart Mulvey, as Chair- man called the meeting to order, and after speaking briefly, introduced Mr. Corrigal of Headingly, who spoke at some length upon the subject of the day. Some other speakers who were expected to deliver addresses, not being forthcom- ing, Mr. Mulvey again took the plat- form, and in a most felicitous vein, en- tertained the company to an excellent and much applauded speech. The band very nicely filled up the intervals in the programme. A number of swings had been erected and these were kept in con- stanfc service. The merry-go-round man was there too, and with bis circulating machine managed to rake in quite a quantity of the circulating medium. It was astonishing to see the apparent age of some of the children who patronized this affair. One gentleman in particu- lar, who had secured as box companion a very pretty down the river young lady, remained in the concern the entire afternoon.

FIRST READINGS. The following bills were then duced and read a first time- Mr An Act to extend intro- nocturnal explorations, tumbled into a cellar, lately dog on Garry Street, by Mr Gingras. He lit upon his head and, be- tween mud and demoralization, being j unable to extricate himself, sung'out varietv to lustily, and a number of people from the Dominion Hotel came to his assistance and pulled him out.

"We were shown' a four point blanket made at Me Vicar's woollen mills, St. Boniface, which for finish and durable qualities, and in everv particular which goes to make a thorough, number one, blanket, cannot be excelled by any imported article. The sample shown us is four inches wider than imported blankets, and weighed eight pounds. These blankets can be produced at a cheaper rate than is paid for the imported article. Messrs. McVic- ar have already received an extensive order. Humors of tfce Route. About half way between Oak Point and Winnipeg there is a creek where immigrants and other people along the road camp. A few days ago as some weise coming along they, observed near the creek a pole-about ten feet high stuck in the ground arid a piece pf'pork, and a tin of butter attach- ed to it. On a slip of paper was writ- ten: "Contributed to the paupers of the Dawson Road; eat hearty." On another slip of paper was written: Stay, weary traveller, thank your Gocf You're safely o'er the Da-wson Eoad I'm sure it will do you some good To take a little rest-and food. mercifial'iaalLpnij <lo not matter, iou're-welcome to and butter." of the days proceedings, passed a quiet, orderly, and: highly satisfactory manner, arid the Orangemen of Manito- ba are to be congratulated upon the suc- cess of their annual celebrations. In the evening the excursion was well patronized, the commodious of Prince Rupert being well filled. The band was present and furnished capital dancing music, which was taken advan- tage of by the boys and girls to the full- est extent. The best of good humor prevailed, and everybody was apparent-, ly determined to enjoy the thing- hugeiy.' The rain which set in just'as the excur- sion was winding up, afforded, pleasing to the programme, and many fluttering ribbons were flattened, out, and much ornamental skirt wan pot ready for the washtub. -Take.things all in all, as they occur- red, let ua say, Hurrah for the twelfth of July, even if it does come on the thirteenth. The weather throughout the day, al- though a trifle warm, could not have been made much better for the purpose. think it right to discharge the notices of private bills by members for they would have to begin afresh and thereby lose considerable time and be- sides he did not think it was proper for the Government to do so without first consulting the members interested. Hon. Mr. Girard said he thought it was proper to do as they had done, and that it was better to begin afresh under the new order of things, but as .the mo- tion had been carried it would' have to .g'O as.it is. Hon. Mr. Irirard .then moved the appointment of committees for the fol- lowing purposes: .privileges and elec- tions, public accounts, law appointments, and CLINK WANTS, 10 SEILL AH acre of stable" a acre of a things. See advertisement to-morrow. MONDAY. July 13th, 1874. The Speaker took the chair at 3 p.m. Hon. Mr. Girard said before proceed- ing to business he wished to give fuller information to the House than he was in a position to do on Wednesday last Owing to Hon. Mr. McKay's illness not completed the Cabinet at that time, but since that they had seen him and on their earnest request he had agreed to accept the same position that he held in the old Government, there- Core Jas. McKay is President of the Council. He trusted that the new Government would have the confidence of the House in order that the necessary legislation for the good, of the 'Province might .be" proceeded 'witE thought .that every ope would admit the Electoral Divisions as laid off by Jir. Archibald was a fair and equitable di- vision, and as the principle of represen- tation by population was the basis on which those divisions were made four years ago he admitted the correctness of that principle and the JSedistribution Bill shortly to be laid on the table was founded upon that principle, and would give, fourteen to ten -He said- a of injus- tice had been done, he "would not say intentionally, but many names had been which the Government will introduce we agriculture, colonization, education private bills. Hon. Mr. Royal said that .all these committees were provided for by the rules of the House, and that it was only necessary to appornt a committee. Hon. Mr. Girard said they would do that after, but he thought it wag right enough to say what committee should be appointed. The motion, was then carried and on motion of Hon. Mr. Girard' the foKow- appointed a committee to strike the standing committee's, Hay, Davis, Royal, and Girard. Hon. Mr. Hay introduced the Bill for the Registration of- Voters, 'which was considered, read a first, time, second read- ing on Wednesday." Hon Mr.Hay introduced the Bill for the Redistribution of Electoral Divisions, and. said that the meriibers would find that there are many changes in it from the Bill passed at the former part of the session, but the Government have tried to make it as fair as possible. One clause provides for giving votes to per- sons entitled to. them under certain conditions. The Government have en- deavoured to keep as far as possible the old parishes. They have restored High Bluff, as several influenciaJi residents there urged very-strongly .that it should be done; and instead of making -an ex- clusively Canadian constituency back of tb'e Portage, High Bluff, etc., they had placed, iiiem in with the old parishes. oSTorth St Andrews has been extended a little north and St'Clements'" and St Peteri! have been amalgamated. We havfe the provisions and definitions of the limits of each Electoral Division as clear as possible. He tnen referred to the. Registration pf Voters Bi U, and said that .he thought that making of the of the hands of the Sheriff and associate sitting only one place in the county, ing it in the hands of a board ators in each' Elecfcprai.Division, would be found to be more economical and more efficient. Hon Mr ISTorquay said that" the Bill introduced, by the Hori Ministerrof lic Works is a very unsatisfactory one, It is-ah attempt crush outline oid' localities.- bers of this House were elected by the men who bore tie" heat of the day; they by the pio- neers of this couajfcryj; jet we find them in three short yeara at- elected them.
