After breakfast many proceeded to the carriages providec I by Gen Supt. and liad a short cluve up town ere the train started on its wes- tern tour.

This'is his first visit to the Dominion. Count Gleichen was in Canada about fortv years aw, having connected with tiie British fleet in North American waters, rendezvousing every summer at Halifax, lie was warm in Ms expression oi wonder at the progress Canada lias made since Unit time, and gave a highly interesting account of his journey througn country forty years ago. Lord Klphinstone is an old and warm On Saturday at noon the city post office authorities commenced to move their stock, fixtures, paraphrenalia, etc., to the new and elegant establishment, provided for there accommodation by the authori- ties at Ott.-i.wa, next doyi1 to the custom iiouse. The plan of operations showed executive skill on the part of the officials in charge, and the work of remov- ing the enormous quantity of mail matter was carried out without the slightest hitch. The Superintendent of Public Works Mr. Dan Smith, had the oversight of the work. The assistant postmaster, Mr Elliott, superintended the removal, while Mr. Hargrave, the postmaster, at the new building attended to the placing the furniture, etc., on its arrival. iJv six o'clock everything was removed, and the old building presented a drear ana iesolate appearance. The temporary post-office, despite its unprepossessing appearance from the out- side will be found very convenient in its nternal arrangements. It is fully five !eet wider than the old one, and having windows on both sides will, be more cheerful. There were over ten thousand letters to be removed and sorted, and yet bv eight o'clock yesterday morning busi- ness could have gone 011 as usual provided it had been a week day. The most troublesome piece of furniture to remove was the newspaper sorting; circle, which had to be sawn into six pieces, ine nionev office and registration ce- D'lrtrieut is on the left-hand side on enter- in.? and Iming furnished with a window will be found more convenient for tne transaction business than was the old one A door on the south side leads into an ante-room which communicates with the 'jostmaster's private ofilce by a wicket, i Tie location of the post-office mspee- or's oflire has not yet been settled, and will for the next few days _ occupy nis quarters in the old Ungtairs is the office of the Assistant- Eeceiver-General, and the Government Savings Bank. There are large and commodious vaults on both flats. They are built of brick, lin- ed with two thicknesses of chilled steel and one ol malleable iron. The doors are secured with time locks of the most ap- proved pattern. In the upstairs vault thpre will be three safes, only one which is at present in position. It weighs 9 500 pounds, and is one of the imest made: It is secured by a. double coraoma- tioii lock of a unique and recently mvent- Greateattention has been paid to the rentilation of the temporary ppstofhce, and the employes -will doubtless find it a much more healthful building to work in than the old one on this account. Thf. expeditious manner in which tne removal was conducted is largely due .to the care and forethought of the superin- tendent of Public Works, .Mr. Smith, who deserves the thanks of the community toi having- arranged matters so that the corn luiiuity at large nave not been put to an; inconvenience whatever.________ Hev.

KIVEK. Accidental JJrownins Body Inqest, etc. Shortly before noon on Saturday, the officers at police headquarters were in- formed that a drowning accident had oc- curred in the Red River, nearly opposite the Redwood Brewery. Investigation elicited the facts that an itenerant mer- chant of street wares, named Garvm, ana an elderlv half breed by the name of Josenh Ca'meron, had been out rowing when the boat capsized. Cameron sink- ing his companion elung to the boat un- til rescued. During the excitement some witnesses of the sad occurrence, warmly charged the survivor with pur- posely upsetting the boat, but no cause for such a base act could be ascertained by the authorities. Cameron lived with his family in St.; Peters' parish, and Garvm claimed to come from Central New Yoik. After several hours grappling, Cameron s hodv was found by the police, and an in- quest held Saturday evening. After a thorough investigation, a verdict ot death by accidental drowning was returned.
