J^SII.—On Sunday morning a ring was heard at the door ot a gentleman residing not many iniles from Redcliff-crescent,and who is well known for his "deter- mined vigour and zeal," and, on the servant answering the door, a respectably dressed and exceedingly pretty young woman handed in a basket, stating that it contained a pre- sent of fillh from a lady to Mr.—, and requested that it might not be left too long in the basket, as the warm wea- ther would not be likely to improve the flavour. Betty placed the welcome parcel in the hall, and was pursuing her household duties, when, to her great surprise, she saw the basket turned a complete somersault, and in a state of extreme excitement she rushed up stairs to inform her mistress of the lively present below.

When, lo! on cutting the strings not salmon, trout, or puppy-dog appeared, but a charming infant of about three months, nicely diessed and with an extra supply ofbaby-linen for a change. The glance which passed between Mr.—and his lady on the discovery may be imagined but not described.
