Thb proceedings in a lato N.8.W. slander case became so monotonous that the presiding Judge frequently-well, nodded. The case lasted five days, so to relieve the tedium, games of " sleep-to" were played in all parts of the court. A pool was formed and each player made a guess as to the number of minutes the Jadgo would remain motionless .during his next nap, the closest guess to scdop the pool. During the course of one pool his Honor mnintained his immobility so far, beyond the period prescribed by the wildest guesser that one guester oponlV wagered he was dead. A certain lawyer politician was at that moment examining L witness when the opposing counsel rose no object to his sfcvle of interrogation. With a clownish leer tne politician replied: " Objjbct stray, ray learned friend, HE ain't listening." The general laugh that followed this raborb awoke the Judge, who, totho politacianVs dis gust, ultimately sustained the objectioli that had been nigea against him. J CULVER Centre-Secon...

Facts about the Derby. From an Engliali paper. 1. As regards the adjournment of "The House" over the "Derby Day" (for obvious reasons) no provision was made to that effect in Magna Chartu. The first formal motion is said to have been mode by Lord George Bentick on the 18tU of May, 1847; bq i the motion is said to have been moved by the Government in 1860 (when Lord Palmer .ton remarked that" to adjourn over Derby l)ay was a part of the unwritten law of Parliament") to 1879, when it was dropped by Sir Stafford Norlhcote. 2. The race, dating from 1770, is one year younger than the OakB, and is two years younger than the Doncaster St. Lejer, and was due to the initiative of the twelfth Earl of Derby, from whom it received its name, as also was the Oaks, so culled from the same noble lord's estate-which had belonged to his relative, General Burgoyne-not far from Epsom. 3.
