Sir, —In the course of a stroll through the Southern Cemetery I observed with regret that many of the odd pieces of ground at the corners of walks and elsewhere, hitherto reserved for ornamental shrubs and flowers, have been sold ter burial lots, and instead of grass and shrubs we now have tombstones and iron railings. Now, sir, I think this a great pity. Sooner or later the Corporation must obtain additional cemetery space. Why put off until the present cemeteries are ruined by the loss of their ornamental plots, and reduced to streets of iron railings? Until some years ago the Southern Cemetery was an honor to the City—it partook so much of the character of a park or garden. _ This is being rapidly changed, and a beautiful spot ruined for want of a little forethought. Tbe same thing is taking place also in the older part of the Northern Cemetery,—l am, etc., Viator.
