The Good Young Man. He admires George Rignold immensely and never goes to any- theatre but Her Majesty's ;' yet such is his aversion to pro fane language that he would not even go there while Oath-ello was performing. iHe isso temperate that he once resisted the 'invitation of 'a baromiter-m?ker to "have a glass" in the hall to tell the weather by. He is guileless as a lamb with regard to the fair sex; and if any ivorldling informed him that the feminine optic could on occa sion throw out amorous signals, he would at' once avow winkredulity; IHe is modei?ttdta. degree,: wlich :compels' iimh'to refrain from in any way altering his mode of life, lest friends should be: able to' accuse him of "taking a nude departure." SHe allows himself the relaxation of a little inusic, and this he takes in' the shape of cbonet-playing, as.:this instrument-encour iiges him to "always edme: home toot-y."' [To'tea? INevr I-ED,] "

'Its majestic position, .standing boldly out from the mainland and rising straight up from the blue.ocean to a height of several hundred feet, the brilliant 'hues' .of, the 'thousand and'one varieties of tropical foliage ''which cover its steep sides from top to bottom, the clear skies above, and: the bright plumage of the birds flashing in the sun,-all contribute to make the spot picturesque in the extreme. In the maze of the gigantic underwood on the bluff at the time offwhich I am writing, leopards, tiger-cats; moiikeys, serpents, and other beasts and reptiles roamed 'at' will, the precipitous sides and wild entanglement insuring protection from the attacks of the hunter. Within the last few years a road has been made up the bluff, and a lighthodse. now: crowns the summit.
