Der ing one of thosd terrible fits of depres aion to which this author was subject, a devoted friend sought to divert his mind by relating to him an old legened describing a remarkable ride of one John Gilpin. The attempt scens' to have been entirely successful, fort the time being at least, and the poet is said to have been highly amo!sed. So deep an impression did the story make upon him that he proceeded to put it into versm'in the form of a bal lad, a copy of which he presented to his friend as a token of his grititusde for her thoughtfulness aii his behalf.

The re-construction of the electoral biondaries of the various districls has already had the result of bringing out a quantity of "new blood." and, inl many cases, men as yet untried in any public eapaeity whatsoever. Naomes are being daily added to the list of contestants for the future representation of Pralhran, St. Kilda, and South Yarra, and, judging from present appearances, there will be a very hot battle fought inl each of these single-menber electorates. The electors will have goodly fields to pick and choose from, and as there is as yet a clear six weeks to polling day-that momentous occasion--the merits and demerits of the numerous aspirants can be carefully considered. Up to the time of going to press the combatlnts for the respective constituencies are: PIrahran - Mess...
