A newspaper carrespondent to an English paper, in sketching its history the other day — and a most skocking one it is — relates some personal anecdotes of Muley Yezid, nicknamed Bedbeard (but not in his hearing, who lately adorned the throne of Morocco, which are worthy of preservation. His favourite religious exercise (like that of some most Christian kings of earliest date) was to roast ?Jews, and his pet relaxation to decapitate half-a-dozen of his most immediate attendants aud play towls with their heads.
