Not knowing that the Germans had church service on that day they took It for an alarm of flre. One citizen mounted liis norse, ladies ran down Sumniit street, while men hurried up town to see the lire. When the man on horseback reached Fausel's corner, Nic Senger said to him : " Tliis Is Erscheinung fest and the Qermans are pious enough togo to churcli." So East Manchester settled down to its usual quiet again." The Tpsilantian without authority or reason had the name of the publUher of the Sentinel, as one of the applicants for tlie postofllce, and slnce the appointment, be lias been frequently consoled with the assurance that be more than all otliers had earned and ought to have it. These are evidences that his appointment would have been uuiversally satisfactory ; but we have never been an applicant, and at notwitbstanding all that is said about " civil service reform," the ollice does not seck the man, we have never liad a show. All the same, all well wlshers have our tbanks.- Sentinel. Brother Woodrutl" fakes the matter in a very philosophical, good-reasoü-why-Jack-didn't-get-hia-suppcr mauner, doesn't he?
