And it goes on to  say  "The  Courier
has got a rather tough field for a newspaper with patriotic, go-ahead instincts,
hut as tho continual dropping of water
does wear away in time, the hardest of
stones, so we predict that our indefatigable and public-spirited contemporary
will yet he a most important means in
reanimating tbe "dry bones" in the "city

galaxy of coming cities in the "gem of lb*

very much on the discernment, patriotism, and shrewdness of ber citizens

HOCKS ON TIIE STREETS.
Since the Muriel arrived yesterday alter-
noon a stranger would have received the
impression that thc city was in a state of
terror  on  account of dogs, Fenians or
some wild animals, as every other person ;
one  meets   has either a small rock in his I
pocket or a large one tucked  tinder  his!
arm.   An  undertaker was lirst descried j
with a chunk of   rock about the si/.e of  a
cottage loaf.   On being asked to point out ]
his enemy be only remarked :    "Isn't it a 1
dandy?   Look  at the free   gold   in it."
Then he passed on.   Soon after him came 1
Mr. .1. W. Rudd with a piece onlv a sliglll . dramatize   "Robert     lilsmere,
