Criekoet Fights. & Disgusting Form of Sport which is Very Popular in China. There is s:arcely any form of sport that is not made the occasion of gambling, but one of the most out-of.the-way examples is the following. The game is not very elevating, nor does it seem that in the long run is -onld be found very exciting; but it does not tlle much to amuse children, no matter how -td thay ere. We halted in a corner to watch a fight be. twcen trained crickets. I had seen a nomber ,f theca little creatures ofaered for sale in tiny bamboo cages, but had not realined their position in the gambling world. Oricket fights, however, seem to be as eatie factory a medium for gambling as cock fi3hting or any kindred sport; so these poor little ins:cts are most ecieatifieally ex traseed from their hiling places in old walls, and carefully accured until the day of battle, when two al a time are placed on a fiat tray with a deep rim, and are encou. raged to fight, wisica they do with hearty g...

The asylum over which I now made a ton! of inspection was a beautiful building, re sembling in its appointments the homes of the wealthy and opulent.

The daughter of a chief, she was raturally proud of her blood and station, cold in heart and revengeful of an insult to very dtsp:ra tion. Olcen had she been wooed but never won. The arrow that was to reach her breast appeared not to have been feathered until E:nest Legarde, an agent of the North American Fur Company, ventured in the vicinity of her people and filled her ears with glowing accounts of how Pocahontas had been respected and treated. Then her pride awoke as it never had before, heaven tooting although it had always been, and she longed for such a position. Her fondness for attention was flattered by his constant visits to the wigwam ...

St ,-That I was utterly disappointed with Mr Hunt's address on Saturday night is amild way of expressing myself. If Mr Hunt imagines that byabusing his opponent he is insuring his election. I trust that he will be deceived. We know Mr McKenzie's merits and demerits without the aid of Mr. Hunt, and I can assure that gentleman if Mr McKenzie was known throughout the electorate as intimately as himself the chances are that he would lose his deposit. Instead of Mr Hunt addressing the electors use we pvsuas y .causessa v um eay a simply spoke on his sympathies with th f working man.
