We think that during the hot weather the efforts of punitory reformers can be scarcely better employed than by whitewashing the roof of cottages. and thus lessening the chances of fever and other aitments that flesh is heir to, ACCIDENT.-One day last week a serious accident befd Mr Isaac Thomas, farmer, of Hopshill.

Allen, photographer, Tudor Square, had placed his large solar camera and enlarging apparatus in his en- larging room, and on going into the room again, after the lapse of about fifteen minutes, found the apparatus in a blaze, caused by the concentration of the rays of the sun by the lenses (as in a common burning glass). The instrument is quite new, and of the value of about £ 35. If the accident bad not been discovered at the time, a few momenta more would have put the premises on fire. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.—On Saturday week there was an inquest held at the Prince of Wales Inn, Stepaside, before J. C.

A letter was read from Harrison's sureties admitting their liability to pay X12 10s (a month's rent), which they maintained was all that they were responsible lot- by the terms of the bond, which stipulated that the rent should be paid monthly, and they had received no notice of Harrison being in arrear until after he had left. They hoped, on their paying a month's rent, the Corporation would relieve them from further responsibility and trouble in collecting the tolls. Pioposed by C.

That the Council cannot entertain the pro- position of the sureties of Robert Harrison, the lessee of the tolls, and that they hold them to their agreement.
