THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS.—Amongst the members elected to form the new House, an ingenious writer has discovered the following cufious features :-Only one Cross 1S left; bub there are two Crossleys and one Crossman. There is one Will, three Williamses, one Thomas, one Henry, one Richard, one Johns, two Roberts, three Jameses, and three Davieses; while there is one Green one Brown, two Greys, and one White. There' is a Long, and a Round, and a Biggar While there are four Smiths, there is only one Jones and one Robinson. Again, there is a Fox, an Otter a Peacock, a Roe, and a Finch. There are two Beaches, a Grove, a Pyne, a Flower, a Reed, and a Leake and, in addition to two Hills, there is a Dyke a Lane, a Field, and a Temple, but only one instead of three Akers. The new House, like the last, would not be safe without a Tyler, or genuine'without a Brand, or able to proceed to business without its two Clarks and, as it is to be shortlived, it is proper that there- should be a Sex. The new House will contain three Cooks and two Frys, two Taylors, one Tanner, two Gardners, one Trotter, two Hunters, and two Fowlers and, finally, it supplies a King. THE LOCAL OPTION CONTINGENT IN THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS.—A few more names, which we give this week, bring up nearly the whole tale of new members favourable to temperance legisla- tion. We are now able to count 348 men willing to vote for local option of some kind, including prohibition and of these, 201, are pledged to vote for the direct popular vote. This result of the general election is very highly inspiriting and speaks well, on the whole, for the earnestness and energy of the good friends of the Alliance all over the king om. "Ilialice News. THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN RAILWAY KING." -The will of Mr. Vanderbilt. the American millionaire and "railway king," who fell dead at his residence, New York, on Tuesday, Dec. 8th, was read after the funeral, on Friday. The following are the testamentary dispositions :-The house and its contents are left to the widow, together with an annuity of 200,000 dollars, and a lump sum of 500,000 dollars. Each of the deceased's eight chil- dren receives ten million dollars, and his son Cornelius an additional sum of two million dollars. The charitable bequests amount to another million, and the residue of the estate is divided between his two sons Cornelius and William K. Vanderbilt. The testator directs that the railway stocks he bequeaths to his children shall be held in bulk and administered for the best interests of all. None of such stock is to be disposed of without the consent of all concerned. The fortune left by the deceased is generally estimated at 200,000,000 dollars.
