Tlie World's Fair, Chicago. I [Notes bt John W. Pender.] Tho ' World's Fair' of Chicago is now amongst y tho things that were, and as I was a daily visitor for three weeks at the great exhibition, prior to the dato of its closing on the 31st October last, I have, jotted a few memos., thinking that perhaps they may be interesting to some of your readera. The official closiner was to have, taken place on the 30th October, with great pomp and State cere 0 monies, but owing to tho sad death of the Chief Magistrate of Chicago— Mayo? Harrison — who was shot at his own residence on the previous Saturday evening, by tho hand of a ruffian assassin, no closing ceremony took place, the streets of tho Fair were deserted, flags were everywhere hoisted half mast in honour of the dead Mayor, who was a popular citizen, and under whoso auspices tho Fair ? was inaugurated.

A Page from the History of the Indian Mutiny. When joined to Brigadier Rowcroft's Field Force, the Bengal Yeomanry were the heroeB of a sensa tional incident which threatened to end in thoir annihilation. The rebels had beea defeated in a Blight engagement, and were falling back, when ouuuemy uii some instance on tne right appeared an 18-pounder with a small escort of Sepoys. One only of the two squadrons of the Yeomanry — 122 sabres— was deemed sufficient to deal with the menace -, and after undergoing one or two dis charges the squadron was close on the gun. Yet the mutineers, with muskets levelled from the shoulder, stand like popts — a few strides more, and bayonet and sabre would have crossed each other — when, lo, in an instant, up sprang hundreds of Sepoys on every side, as if out of the very ground itself. They had been crouching, in fact, like tigers, prepared to spring from behind the village and the thin line of their front ranks, by which we were decoyed. It was now too ...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. The revenue received at the Gunnedfth Lands Office during 1893 amounted to .£21,726 10s 4d. An English paper records an event which may do away with waltzes and polkas for ever. Flirting when carried too far, is checked (in certain circles) by the action for breach of promise, and now the law has been called in to redress the grievance of a young lady at Newark, whose partner fell with her in a ball room and broke her leg. She claims ior contnoutory carelessness. What frpsrtner is safe ? A collision, a slippery bit of floor, and a couple is down, and a broken leg, a dis located ankle, and an action at law ensue. No prudent man will in future risk a round dance We must go back to the pas seul, to the slow' stately minuet or the livelier rigadoon, or in lower spheres of life, perhaps, to the jig or the hornpipe —dances where every young lady has the sole con duct and care of her own limbs.

Here's a State of Things Science has diminished hope, knowledge has ?destroyed our illusions, and experience has deprived us of interest. Here, then, is the authorized dic tionary of discontent: What is creation ? A failure. What is life ? A bore. What is man ? A fraud. What is woman ? Both a fraud and a bore. What is beauty t A deception. What is love ? A disease. What is marriago ? A mistake. What is a wife ? A trial. What is a child ? A nuisance. What is the devil ? A fable. What is good ? Hypocrisy. What is evil ? Detection. What is wisdom ? Selfishness. * What is happiness ? A delusion. What is friendship ? Humbug. What is genorosity ? Imbecility. What is money? Everything. And what is everything ? Nothing. Were we, perhaps, not happier when we were ?monkeys?
