The country is flooded, and ruin and death are reported in consequence. It rminds me of the Wesleyan lady whose garden was parched for want of rain, beseeching her pa:str to pray for the fluid. He prayed, and her garden was washed away. She left the church, declaringthatWesleyanism was too extreme. Of many Speakers who have pre sided in the Victdrian LcgislantivoAssembly, Mr. M. H.

His d?lomacy, unlike that uisually characteristic of poll ticians, centres itself in the commendable aim of restoring friendships and healing petty jealousies. It may not be generally known that each evening last session a little dinner was given by thie Speakcr, to which those whose hearts were not akin were invited, and many a quarrel which might ...

No less than two million letters parced through the post-office at Manchester on Christmas Eve. A curiouo fact is stated about the wife of ex-Presirent Clvelad.
