ORIGIN OF THE YEA ROAD BOARD. -4-f- The Devil was missing 'twas said, Thereby hangs a tale 1 will make; I tlhou;hlt that the Devil was dead, But soon I tound out my mistake, For he had been busy in town Attending on parliament men, And gui'aed far himself great renown By the use of his tongueand his pun. The Devil was so long away, Thei thing was beginning to tell; For all the good people of Yea In his absence were doing right well, The Devil, like many a sinner, Felt hungry and thirsty one day ; And thought he'd go home to bhi dinner, And slackenhis thirst by the way, The shortest road homeward he chose ('Twas a pretty roughl journey to Hell) And pulled up-1Where, do you suppose - Why, at the Commeorcial Hotel i In the good town of Yea : and mine host lie aound lumot rm irk slly civil, Incliing to worship almost.

LUKJE LATIER1. AFTERI HOOD' Luke Lather was a barber, sirs, And lived at Islington; He used to soap his customers, And Jay it thickly on. And yet, he was no flatterer, For often he would carp At what they said, and being blunt, IIe took them up quite sharp. 'Twas very strange a man so pert Could so expertly shave ; But though no one could better scrape, He never learned to save. His circumstances being strait, All things with him went wry Iis funds were low, no doubt because He held his bead so high. For it was found by all who crossed The threshold of his door, The more he took their beards away,, : He bearded them the more. . - And so his customers fell off.?' ' 'Blcause his tongue ran on, And since no toiks came in his shop, Hoe found his income gone, He tried to borrow. but :is friends. Had so unfriendly grown, They left hitm to himself, and yet Hlecould not get a loan. lie thought : ' How cold this cruel worl ; On its wide waste adrift , And went and pawned his shirt, for he Wa...

(From our own Correspondent.) queutly mining matters are getting into a more healthy state The policy of a people having to delpend on themselves gives more confidence in their iunlertukings, and this is the position of 'this disuiict at present, Wood's Point people have to depend entirely on their own resources the same as they did in olden times. Profiting by their reckless squandering of money on mere " progressive I claims." the place having nearly been ruined by such expenditure, has awakened them to the fact that no speculations should be entered into but those that are bonafide, From the present appearance of the quartz claims this district never looked better. There is no donbt about the permanency of this as: a lasting field for the, miner. Claims that :were supposed to be worked out, are Snow only in their infancy, most of them having worked leaders, the main body of Sstone remaining untouched.
