"I call you," "1 see you that and go ten better," und; many other beautiful. and expressive phrases, uro in current use among worldlings. In 'this game a full beats a flush, and four beats a full.

Tlic world 'ot Jupiter is thc most volu- minous bf all thc globes of our system ;' it is; only 1U,0U0 times'smaller! than'' thc sun, uud by itself alone is equal to 1,400 terrestrial globes. : So, .although] it, re- volves . in' a "circuit' that " is almost 200,000,000 leagues distant, and receives a light very hiuc'.i fainter than that rc: eeivud by tho earth, its bulkiness is mani- fested through tho' brilliancy' with which it shines during our starlit nights, n'bril ,Haney, equal and ' often superior to that .with which'Venus sparkles. His is a ra- ra visiting world,'when judged from a dis- tance, without having been there. In the first place, a perpetual spring time radi- ates o'er his surface. If ho is bedecked with llpwors:-a circumstance of which Wo entertain no doubt, save as to knowing of what such Howers; may consist-they do not live only "l'espace d'un mutin " (tho space of a morning) as,'your.roses,, but enjoy .an existence infini...

THE correspondent of the « Times ' says : " The wasting dissipations and debaucheries of the unfortunate Padishah, as' well as his fits' of brooding melancholy and- his vague terrors, '.kno.w jxo limits and intermission. .His Majesty is'afflicted with. bad teeth, and his dentists, as may well be imagined, have np easy times with their formidable patient.

"Upon the "poor woman answering that her son was always'in the same sad condition, he gave her....

It was so at Gaudaloupp, at; Colon, Panama, and Acapulco. The fruit at these places are bf enormous size. We had bananas-^-evidently .of the common' long kinds 'grown in Queensland-each, of which was, from eight to ten .inches iu length. The quality was. very fine ; better, as we believe, than any we had ever before tasted. Well, iii all these cases the banana groves are forüied by chipping and burning the...
