M. ships Erebus and Terror and several of the vessels in harbour amongst which the Sea Horse steamer was gaily conspicuous, were dressed out with flags.

MISCELLANEOUS. Lord Brougham a Smoker.-When Lord Brougham was in the zenith of his fame, ere he took his prodigious leap from the floor of the House of Commons to the woolsack in the Lords, he most certainly derived great benefit from a pipe. When he was working what may be called treble tides he smoked a pipe between each spell, and returned with renewed vigour to his multifarious labours.
