DEEMING'S LAST RHYMES. The following doggerel versos, whioh would appear to be a series of imitations, were the murderer's last production, being written on the day before his exeoution, and presented by him to one of his spiritual advisers. TO GOD I CALL. A scornful word, how soon 'tis said, How soon our grief for what is given, How swift the heart recalls what's speil, Whon wo turn and think of heaven, Then anger in terror fled. How tired I was ; my bosom heaved Inspecting that and hinting this ; Tho fearful Taunts which my heart beiievod, I thought, I launched, no point to miss. At last I found witli God I lived.

Tho last days of that astounding negation of everything human, Frederick Bailoy Deem ing, wore passed in comparative decency, and tho chnngo in his bearing and conduct, if not calculated to remove tho deep horror and resentment that his deods of blood had arousod, were at any rate in striking and favorable contrast to the repulsive spirit of levity that ho assumed bofore his sontonce had been pronounced. On Monday, 23rd May, when ho came on tho scaffold to oxpinte his crimes the change was still more marked, and those whoso painful duty it was to look upon tho performance of the extreme penalty of tho law, found it difficult to rocogniso in tho livid features and shrunken form of t.ho convict, in his repulsive prison garb, tho man who hut a few days before had laughed so recklessly in tho facos ot his accusers.

#f^jjll The principal event in connection with thea trical affairs during the month has been the ap pearance of the third Gaiety Company at the Opera House, under engagement to Mr. George Musgrove, in Faust Up to Date. They opened to a big house on the 14th May, but the public wore met with the disappoint ment that Miss Marion Hood, owing to an accident, was unable to appear, and her part, Marguerite, had to bo entrusted to a sub ordinate artist. The result was that on the first night some fears were entertained as to the success of tho entertainment. However, the performance was satisfactory and tho applause frequent and enthusiastic. On tho following Saturday night Miss Hood was enabled to np pear, and Faust Up to Date proved all that was anticipated. Mr. Lonnen has shown himself an excellent artist, though not perhaps equal to Frank Leslie ; and Miss Leamar a charming danseuse, her Ta-ra-ra-Boom-der-ay creating quite a furore.

First, we havo two strongly built wooden steam whalers avail- able, one of 450 tons register and one of 350 tons. The second is rather small, but we cannot do better. The cost of building a new one would be far beyond any money it is possible to raise here for an experimental whaling expedition. At present I havo pro- mises of from £13,000 to £14,000. I will require £20,000 to equip the vessels and pay the expenses of the voyage. Subscribers here have expressed themselves strongl...
