TO THE EDITOR. Sib.—l w,>ulii like to call attrition to the petty unpatriotic spirit displayed by our local Retailers' Association. That august body, setting at defiance nine-tenths of the community, have- dockled to cloao their mighty emporiums on Monday, instead of the generally racognised Saturday. If this twopenny halfpenny spirit is persisted ia, we had better cease to call ourselves British , at all, and take the protection of some : power whose policy is mare m keeping with the spirit of soma of our local tradesmen. — 1 am, eta., Patriot.
