When I saw, throughout the country, how the Arabs now use the caves of the hills to bed their goats and cattle, this belief of the friars appeared less absurd than it Would with us; but still, it is so improbable that the precise spot of these transactions (whose importance was not known till afterwards) should have been marked and remembered, that I felt little interested in them in comparison with the landscape, outside about whose leading features there could be no mistake.

Answip. to a Challenge.—Through some mistake, a gentleman in the sooth of Ireland led off the dance at a country ball out of his turn. The person appointed to the post of honor, challenged the intruder, and received the following reply : " I cannot understand why, because I opened a ball at night, a ball should open me in the morning." Siiaksteahe's Bihtti fLACE ,vas lately offered for Bale. In consequence a great meeting took place al Stratfbrd-upon-Avon, to take measures to preserve it from destruction, and tn erect some worthy memorial of the great dramatist in his native town. A large number of the nobility and gentry were present, and great enthusiasm prevailed. Another meeting took place in London, and subscriptions have been commenced; and it is pretty certain that the old habitation of tho bard will soon become the property of the nation. Among the literati active are Jerrold, Ainswortb, Knight and Vandcnhoff.
