.— 4 BEREZOWSKI'S ANCESTORS. The assassin, Berezowski-that is the only correct orthography of a name that has been subjected to more than one trans- mogrification-is, as manifest from his patronymic, of Russian descent. The Polish form of the name ia Brzszowski, Anglice, Beecher-i. c., he of the beech. wood. His great grandfather, according to Polish papers, was a Cossack from the Ukraine, who emigrated to Volhynia, where the son became suc- cessively postmaster and a civil administrative officel under the Polish Government. The postmaster's son, Berezowski s father, m his turn inherited a fine estate, served in the Russian Army, and was pensioned off when he had attained the rank of major. Though not flagrantly implicated in the rebellion, he, in 1863, shared the fate of many of his suspected countrymen, being banished to some distant inhospitable region, where he earned a scanty livelihood as a teacher of music. His estate was of course seized. The family, originally belonging to the Greek orthodox denomina- tion when in Poland, turned United Greeks, or what is the same, Roman Catholics, until, after the exten- sion of Russian sway to Volhynia, they were forced back to the bosom of the ortlfodox Church. A member of the latter Berezowski calls himself.

That young lady ought possibly to have as good a right to vote as even Patrick Mulligan, three months In from Cork, who doesnt know «B from bull's loot,' and never will learn."
