FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Poets and rata. —The house in which Moore was born is now a whisky shop; Burns's native cottage isa public house ; Shelley's house at (ireat Harlow, a beer shop; the spot where Scott was born is occupied by a building used for a similar purpose ; and even Coleridge's residence at Xether Stowey, the very house in which the poet composed his sweet •• Ode to the Night i ngnle," is now an ordinary beer house. A house in which James Montgomery lived for forty years at Sheffield, is a beer shop. Robert Kettle, of Glasgow, was of a joyous nature ; and the very things that would hnveirritated others, only excited his mirth. Having left some temperance tracts at the house of a friend, he found 'hem. on calling a few days after, serving the purpose of paper curls to one of the young ladies.

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * A Paris correspondent of ihe London Critir says that the ljamartine subscription goes on quietly, aud had brought in something like 460,000f. (about 8*0.000), a very high figure for France or any other country. The sum would have risen much higher, but some one pointed out that the distresses of the poet could not be very great, as, wholly independent of any property ht may possess, he is in receipt of some $15,000 annually from the gift made him by the Sultan, and for the use of his name by two Paris journals With the sum of 380,000 cash in hand, the sum of $15,000 annually, together with the possession aud daily exercise of his popular and most profitable talents, it does seem as though Lamarttne might be able to extricate himself from his difficulties. * * At a private festival meeting, previous to the opening nf the Surrey garden, Ijondon, Mons.

STANZAR. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

STANZAR. I was a violet in a lonely shade ; And there he fonnd me for the sunlight pining— A lowly woodbine; and he plucked my sweets, And fondly placed me round his strong heart twining: A little star In a great heaven of blue; And he looked up from earth, and loved my shining. 1 was a rosebud with my beauties shut; And with love-flowers he set my leaflets swelling: A fair yeung dove; and in the darksome wood. He heard my voice my plaintive sorrows telling: A tinkling fountain in a silent deU; ' And all for him my ceaseless tears were welling. I was a dulcet-throated lark; and oft He watched me from my level field upsprlnging— Straining his gsse, fearful lest I should flee To heaven whilst in my glorious eky-path winging; And as I chanted in my fluttering flight. Drank with still ears the busses of my singing. Still let me bloom for him a beauteous flowerAll sweetest charms of form and fragrance blending; A joyous bird IH sing for his dear sake; His guiding star I'll beam with ligh...

The Deadsman's Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

The Deadsman's Tale. A STOBY I HEARD TH MUNICH " More punch ? By all means, and this time let it be a tri-fle stiller." There was a Frenchman, a German, and your hnmble servant. We were sitting round—not the fire, alas!—but a huge stove of white China tiles, with a little iron door, which, when opened the widest, gave us the comfort of a mere blink at the fire. Tbe Frenchman was a jolly fellow, and without vanity, I may say we were all jolly fellows. The Frenchman was in love. Not that that made much difference in him. What is something, however, is, that the Frenchman besides being in love, had the toothache, which fully accounts for two intimate chums partaking of his hot punch, round his celebatarian Penates. The German might have been in love, too, (most Germans are so), but he did not mention it; and meluncholically stolid as he appeared, I do not feel at liberty to assert the fact. One thing is certain, that we were discussing the difference of the customs of our respective co...

Bigotry and Ignorance in Medicine. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 2 November 1856

Bigotry and Ignorance in Medicine. It is not m little remarkable that there should be so little general and genuine interest in medicine. If the public had expended as much time, attention and solicitude on its physical as it has on its spiritual welfare, how much more rational would be the present doctrine and practice of therapeutics, how much more scientific the great body of medical men, how much disease would have been prevented ? Dr. Todd is reported to have said to his pupils that he had become convinced that an apoplectic patient's chances of recovery are greatly increased if he is not bled ; that in "such cases he bad, as a rule, ceased to bleed, but that such is the strength of the popular prejudice in favor of bleeding for apoplexy that great moral courage is required to resist; inasmuch as, if an unbled patient should die, his death would most likely be imputed to the neglect of the doctor. One of the ablest men iv the profession recently attended a gentleman attacked wi...

Count Orloff had known the oh! lady iv former years, and forgetful of her forked tongue, grown sliar|ior yet with age. ventured iv the character of au old friend and quondam pupil in the lighter grnces of Parisian life, to give the old countess a word ol advice. " Why not change with your century?" said he persuasively: "nothing is to lie done by your parly- Uoyali«m and Republicanism are ccpially innl ports. You have two sons : Napoleon ism is the order of the day ; the Bourbons of "la has' never can come back ; Ik* wise iv time, your sous have families whose future fortune may be made at once."

Walter Savage Landor on Italy. In a letter to the I/tiidon F.rnmnirr. Mr. Ijtndor says : —" In the most amicable spirit, I venture to express my dissent from M. Kossuth, whom 1 consider an by very far the highest of living men ; tbe most eloquent, the most disinterested, tlie moat consistent of ]>utriots. Slight divergence* of opinion, and even more than slight ones, never turn honest and wise men into enemies. He recommends that the Italian, be left alone to work out their deliverance. Brave as they ever huve been, and are. how is it POarihle that, without arms, without leaders, without union, they should stand against four hundred thousand disciplined troops, under no such generals as ours iv the Crimea, but' under such as Schwartzenburg und RaataaW! Where are their magazines, their arsenals, their fortresses? Fight they will, but fall they must. Winter, this next winter, will sweep away the blighted germs of Italy. France never aided the wronged, and Austria never spar...
