QUESTIONS AMD ANSWERS. I Witrrnßop.—The first mention of the appointment of a I poet-laureate or king's poet, in England, occurs in an account of tho reign of Edward IV. The following account brings the history of the custom down to the present day. " Poela Umreatu* was also nn academical title in England, conferred by the universities when the candidate received the degrees in gran: mar, (which included rhetoric and versification). The last instance of a laureated degree at Oxford occurs in 1812. Skelton was laureated at both Universities (in 1489 and 1493), and seems also to have been Court laureate to Henry VIII. Ben Jonaon was court-poet to James 1., and received a pension, but does not appear to have had the title of laureate formally granted him. Dryden was appointed laureate to Charles 11., and afterwards to James 11., by regular patent under privy seal. The first patent of this kind, issued in the reign of Charles I. (1630) assigns as the yearly gratuity to the laureate, JEI...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856
FUN, FACT AND FANCY. " There's where the boys fit for college," said the Professor to Mrs. Partington, pointing to the school in Bedford street. "Did they?" said the old lady, with animation ; " and if they fit for college before they went there, didn't they fight afterwards?'' " Yes," said he, smiling and favoring the conceit,' Yes ; but the light was of the head and not of the hands." " Butted, did they ?" said the old lady persistently." " I mean," continued he, " that they wrestled with their studies und went out of college to be our ministers and doctors." " Ah," said she, " I never knew that folks had to rastlc to be ministers and doctors liefore. I siqipose that Mr. Urampton is one of those who has been sent home because he has done wrong and mercy couldn't save him. 1 don't know about it, but some say he was sent home because he wanted to get crcuts for tbe British army, and others that he wanted to bring all the mosquitoes agin us.

SPECIAL NOTICES. tSTTtr. i. JV Cxapkay.—The honorable and consistent course of t.iis gentleman has won for him imperishable respect. Not won by traducing tbe character of others, or seeking to build up his own by the ruin of another's fame; but relying solely upon the public value of his services, he hits pressed on to tha mark of his high calling, and has successfully reached the goal of his aspirations. It is too common that men in respectable professions forget in their selfish desires the respect due to themselves and others, and descend to vindictive, untrue, and unnecessary abuse, that they may injure a competitor, with whom they are otherwise unable to cope. Such has never been the course of the gentleman whose name forms the caption of this notice, and unless we are very much deceived In the representations we hay* had or him, such never will be the case. His private character is not sullied by aught that could stain his purity, and bis professional skill we regard as a boon...

The Double House. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 19 October 1856
The Double House. THE AUTHOR OF " JOHN HALIFAX, GENTLEMAN." " James, the house is let." "Which?" said Mr. Rivers, never looking up from his dinner—for a dozen patients, scattered over a dozen miles were awaiting him. " The house —the Double House —the one that everybody thought would never get a tenant. But it has." "Who?" " One Dr. Merchiston ; but luckily for ns he does not practice. He is a man of large fortune." " Married ?—children ?" "I really don't know. But I should rather think not. " Most family men would object to that very inconvenient house. It might suit an eccentric bachelor, who could live alone iv one half, and shut up his domestics in the other, locking the door of communication between. But for a mistress and mother of a family—dear me!—one might as well live in two separate houses. One never could hear the children cry of nights: and the maids might idle as much as they liked without any oue " Here I turned round, finding I was talking to the air. Mv husband had ...
