" Of what , use to me is my grpat wisdom," said he, j " if I am not permitted to reap the fruit of; it ? The greater part of my life was gone before 1 attained it, and now that I begin ! to use my experience, I find myself on the borders of the grave. What is human wis- I dom but a transitory flower ? Many days ¡ and weeks pass by before the bud unfolds itself ; no sooner is the blossom expanded than it fades away ; it is not given it to see the fruit of its existence." ' So spoke the Prophet, sorrowing ; then lifting up his-eyes, he saw an angel from heaven bearing a vessel made of sapphire in his hand. "Solomon," said thè mes- senger from above, " I come from the throne of the Eternal.

A MEETING was held at Mr.'Thomas Free- man's, St. Patrick's : Hotel, on : Tuesday evening last; for.the purpose of taking into consideration the necessity and propriety of establishing.a Turf Club in this district,1 upon a firm and respectable foundation. The Meeting was not so well attended as we could wish to have seen it on such a sporting occasion. This, however, may be attributed lo the dark, portentous* as- pect of the atmosphere, which, we are quite certain, prohibited many ot' the sporting gentry of the district from fayoriug the Meeting with their 'presence. *rHówever, the sequel will show.that a good beginning has been made. .. . .'.

No mat- ter what subject is broached, or what pro- position about to be made, some one or two are ready to start ort' their legs on the instant in opposition, and the only chance you have of knowing who is going to chime in with each other, ts by- seeing them in a gig, or holding a private meeting at the corner of a street together. We predicted that the late elections would make but little alteration in the said Council, and our prediction is verified.
