AN ANGRY ELEPHANT. O'BRIEN'S Menagerie was lately ex- hibited in NeridoD, Connecticut, United States. Just after the close of the afternoon's performance the great elephant took it into his bead to enact a tragedy not on the bills, so walking angrily out of the enclosure, he went for bis keeper in a fit of rage. The keeper sought refuge ander the cage containing kangaroos, which Mogul disdainfully turned over in a jiffy, and walked through the canvass out of doors. _ Then he went on a tour of inspection and if not ".aceking whom he might devour," be certainly seemed witling to accommodate anybody or-any- thing he might wish to set to. Meeting a pile of lumber ia an adjoining yard lie quickly spread the boards in good shape for seasoning. Then meeting in his path one of tue mules belonging to the company he ran his tuske completely through its body, by pinning it to the ground.

Wim WHICH IS lAOOBPOHATCD TIIK ^fLADSTONE OBSERVER. SATURDAY, MAY 25, 1872. THE GOVEENOE'S unfavourable reply to the Opposition memorial marks ilie beginning of the end of the deadlock. Possibly the minority will still try to carry on the contest, and possibly their obstinacy will bo strengthened by some ill-advised attempt on the part of the Ministerial supporters to make the most of a party triumph. It is true that the Opposition have left no means untried to humiliate the Government ¡ but that dooB not justify the Ministerialists in imposing humiliating terms upon the Opposition. In the words of the old proverb, " Two wrongs do not make one right." The humiliation of inevitable defeat is punishment enough, and no good object would be attained by a harsh or offensive deportment on the part of the victors. The true policy of the Government is to soften, if possible, the blow given to their opponents. Same of them, at least, have been actuated by sincere motives, and have opposed th...

"Ma" said an intelligent thoughtful boy of   nine, " I don't think Solomon was so rich as they say he was" " Why, my dear, what could have put that into your head ?" asked the astonished mother. " Because the Bible says he slept with his fathers, and I think if he had been so rich he would have had a bed of his own."
