a poor nani-wnrxing man untie nimselt out-oi-Work in mid.winter, and be end hie femily may mi#.^*h* boo*/ (they, bein« de«ilute of means) all because tbn annual faroe had to be complied with. It wee represented, we are told, to tbe officer who eerred the ■nmninns, how aerioua the jsonacqucnccs would b# to the recipient were he abeem from hie work. He (the officer) we learn, assured the poor man", unlucky wife that all sorts of terrible pains and perialtiee would be incurred if he failed to appear at the Town-hall; and aa tbe humbler clatsee of the more respectable order, hare great fear of offending against the law, they dreaded what to them was locial rtiin if. they failed to comply with the official mandate. If the whole busineM cannot be improved away, some judgement ought to be ahown, that thoee per«pn« selected are not (a, in this case) those who may seriously suffer by obeying.
Tn*T another.'line of railway running into Southampton would be a very valuable acquisition, we do not doubt. At the same time we see very little to make lis sanguine as to i's ipfcdy realisation. Therefore (and 'for other reasons as well) we think the Town would do well to aid the promoters Of the SWndon, Marlborough, and Anuover.line, which will supply a very important, and, at present, tnUsing link in the railway system of lbe country, and offer a tolerably direct route for traffic between here and the north and west. It Vhould be remembered that the Swindon, Marlborough, and Andover line, has passed overall the trouble, of Parliament, has obtained its Bill, and now only wants the money. This, unluckily, is a hard thing lor an enterprise to command now a-day*, when capital has become so scarce, and capitalist* so cautious. We, hew-ever, must do our best, remembering that the line is a sound business enterprise, and (irrespective of the advantages it would confer upon our Port) is decidedly required to ^satisfy the business wants of the districts it passes through. We trust therefore our monied folk will see their way to do some good for the Port, while they secure m sound investment for themselves by taking sha/es in the Swindon, Marlborough, and Andorer Railway.
Wb have b&T favoured with a copy of the " Account of the Income and Expenditure of tbe Southampton Board of Guardians for the jear ending Lady Day, 1878." Frbm it we extract the following items:'—The rates during the year were 3s 2d in the pound, on a rateable value which reached £193.392. This assessment wave a total receipt of £28,J67. The Guardians re-cieved from other sources about £3,000 more, and the balance from Lady-Bay '77 was £3.900, making _a gross total for, the year of £35.240. From this, however, we have to deduct a year's borough rate, £8,023, and the cost of collection, j£G48—altogether, £9.271> This deducted from , £35,240, leaves £25,969 at the disposal of the Guardians. In passing we may observe that out of the borough rate the School-board expenses have to coige. Turning to expenditure, we find the principal amounts are as follows:—In maintenance, £5,245 ; out relief. £5.079; lunatic maintenance, £3.299 ; officers' salaries, £2,145; and that there was a balance at Lady-day this year of £3,931 in favour of the Town. It will be seen that the actual expenditure on the ".poor," was only two-scvyntbs of tbe total amount debited to the Guardians.
Charity Organisation Society.—We recently reported the annual meeting of tbe Southampton branch-of the above, and gave some extracts from its very valuable report. The great length of that document prevented our placing it before our readers in its entirety; and while we admit tbe importance and value of all that appears in it, yet we would respectfully suggest that it would be more likely to receive attention both from the press and tbe public, were its details considerably abbreviated. On reconsidering it we found the following, relating to a very excellent plan for aiding both tbe deserving poor, relieving tbe rates, and giving a guarantee to charitable people that their kindness shall not benefit the unworthy. Says tbe report—
At the end of the year the committee were enabled to commence the establishment of a pension food for deserving old pooplo. The committee bef froqeueoUy the case that many of the d who, in ,pita of old age and ill-health, hi in keeping themselves ont of the workhouse, anil who from their antecedents, would fool it a degradation t. enter its walls, have each of thorn a circle of friend who are in tbe habit of occasionally giving them pre Bents of money.

On Russian Dissenters.—The following letter (which we extract from Berrow's Worcester Journal) will he found of interest by many of our readers. The remarks of the writer are certainly severe, but certainly not uncalled for. Liberalism is fast becoming a synonym for disloyalty to both Queen and Country:*—
Sir,—Whentho Whig Government of 1710 prosecuted Sachoverell for hi, incendiary preaching. Lord Mohun replied to a remonstrance mads in Sachoverell's favour,
" If these- priest, are to be allowed liberty of
tongue they will preach us all ont of tho country before long." Last Sunday (the last Sunday after.Innitv) is a day popularly known as "Stir op" Sunday, and the occasion «u chosen in at leoat two dissenting '• plaoee of worship " in Worcester on I hat day to have a etir-ap against Government The Rev. -Septimua March (Independent), at Angel-street Chapel, preached agsinst the Afghsn war, which he denounced as onscnptural, immoral,irreligious, and wicked i and condemned the Ministry for entering into it in tbe strongest t-rms. The Kev. John Henshelwood (Presbyterian), at the Scotch Church, in Caatle-atreet, in his prayer, prayed ...............* that the rmnntry m^«lU
