âââââââââââââââ. -SSSStSB.r Thomas Tappin, a boy six years old, has died in London from the effects of a blow on the leg from a stone thrown bv another b ,yo It has been resolved at Blaenau Festiniog to apply for a School Board, and a committee has been appointed to select candidates. Mackay, one of the Fenian prisoners, has written to his wife to intimate that he is not at all sure he shall accept the offer of the Government and leave prison to expatriate himself. In his letter he saysâ"Good hye, dear love. Don't let this disappointment make you sad or downcast. God worketh all things well, and. however much men may scheme and devise, it is He who will finally dispose of us. Relying en His love and goodness, we need not fear. His all-powerful arm will protect us; and even in the midst of sufferings and disappointments, He will, as in the past, pour such joy and consolation into our souls as shall make us exclaimâTruly, 0 God our sufferings are good." THE NEW YORK PRESS ON SCOTCH LANDLORD IXTDI- IlU noN. -lteferring- to the late election for Dumfries- shire, and the penalty incurred by Dr Macaulay, Canon- bie, for exercising his right of voting independently, the New York Tribune says:â"It is wonderful to observe how feudal authority, especially in Scotland, is still as- serted and submitted to. His Grace the Duke of Buc- cleuch had employed a certain Dr Macaulay to attend upon the sick among his miners, and the doctor was also medical officer of the parish of Canonbie. Dr Macaulay, with real Scotch independence, saw fit to support the Liberal candidate. For this iniquity he was commanded to cease his attendance upon the colliers and by the in- fluence of the great man, his apxjointment as parochial doctor was cancelled. The tenants petitioned to have Dr Macaulay retained, and were laughed at for their pains. The workhouse people might as well have petitioned, with Oliver Twist at their head, for the removal of Mr Bumble. The persecuted VhYllician tried to make a living in Can- onbie as an independent doctor but the Duke set up a Tory doctor in opposition, and commanded everybody to be physicked by his protege. Consequently, Dr Macaulay was forced to flee to some other part of this lovely land of liberty. Petty despotism like this would certainly drive free and enlightened Americans to insanity or rebellion fortunately, our political system, with all its faults, allows us to be killed or cured bv t'n- HK.-i of our own choice."
