The bout had loft Big George's island and had run against a strong west wind for a-bout three hours towards Swampy island. When a few miles from tin Island the rrew discovered the boat was aleak and when it wus found that it was impossible to keep ln-r dry it was decided to turn buck inwards Big George's island.

This journal has lived ton soon to be generally popular, for the class of work it has contained does not nppcu) to those sunk in the stagnant pond of creed, custom, superstition and mental ossification. An Irishman brought up on fish and potatoes will have a fever when no first eats meats. So n ;s with people fed on ancient theologlculdopo love of king*, bishops, dukes and titulars. With Hie blood of slaves run  niug in their veins, and minds tainted with the awe of authority they gag when a dish of virgin, virile nnd living thought is sot before them and rush for the donator like u ,nuid bull chasing a red Aug. Perhaps it is a mistake to hand out mental beefsteak when gruel cah only 1st digested.      With these few remarks the shroud is folded over a Journal that perhaps has been too intensely human. Somo will look upon its death ns m. blow to freedom, while others will find sweet-music in the dropping of the clods upon its coffin.
