A SATIRIC poet underwent a severe drubbing, and was observed to walk ever afterwards with a stick. Mr. P. reminds me," says a wag, of some of the saints who are always painted with the symbols of their martyrdom." THE PECULIAR PEOPLE.—The coroner for South Essex, Mr. 0. 0. Lewis, has been called upon to hold another inquiry into the death of a child whose parents belong to the Peculiar People. The case oc- curred at Thundersley, near Southend. It appeared that the child took cold, which developed into inflam- mation of the lungs. The parents gave it honey and gruel, but obstinately declined to call any doctor in. They told the coroner that they did not believe in medical aid. They did not think it right, they said, in the sight of God, and they preferred to trust in God rather than in man. Thev called in two elders of the Church, both of whom laid hands on the child, and one, a labourer named Angeio Chalk, also anointed it with oil, according to the Scriptures. The coroner made some strong remarks, and the jury expressed a hope that the guardians would prosecute the parents. THE LITTLE FRONTIER WARS IN INDIA.—The Times Calcutta correspondent says: Both our little frontier wars have come to a standstill from the diffi- culty of discovering a tangible enemy. The Jowaki expeditious have assumed almost a comical phase, as the Jowakis, having deserted their territory en masse, have left our two splendidly equipped frontier forces in undisputed possession, without an enemy to en- counter. This unconscious stroke of masterly diplomacy has completely upset all the previously concerted plans. It is difficult to forecast what new turn the Government policy will consequently be com- pelled to take. Negas is as defiant as ever, and has offered a reward of 500 rupees for every Englishman's head. COAQOUKE. —The best cement for Broken Articles,6d., Is., 2s. Postage 2d. Kay Bros., Stockport.

KABIE8 AND HYDROPHOBIA. — In Liebig's Letters an account is given of a death through eating the flesh of a buck caught in a snare, and which had died after an agonising and convulsive struggle, and it is stated that the symptoms in many respects recalled those from the bites oj rabid animals Now we saw last week reason to fear that bites inflicted during and while enraged by sexual quarrels might cause rabies. In some instances, if not in all, is it not possible that the virus may be not originally due to any specific germ-graft, as in small-pox, so much as to some peculiar, morbid, unnatural condition of the secretions, occasionally caused by fear, agony, rage or other conditions? The fatal character of inoculation from the putrid matter of a corpse is only too well known amongst surgeons, and is one of the most defined forms of blood-poisoning known to the pro- fession. It is. worth notice that the dog-the most frequent propagator of rabies-is fond of gnawing putrid animal remains; and it may be possible that such morbific matter may become so modified in con- tact with the saliva, or may so change the character of the latter, as to set up under favourable conditions blood-poisoning in other and various forms. We would refer to erysipelas as an analogous case, not of blood -poisoning, but of morbific matter originated spontaneously (in the common acceptation of the term) and still being capable of specific trans- mission from body to body. Should some such view be the true one, we could then account, not only for inoculation, but for the rare cases which appear proved of spentaneous genera- tion, and even for those otherwise puzzling examples of cats and dogs, which have inflicted hydrophobia by their bites, themselves remaining unaffected, as in the cats named by Mr. Reece, and, apparently, one of the dogs mentioned at the commencement of this article. The dog or cat that really originated the outbreak might, in fact, bo expected to remain free, thus ac- counting for the rarity of such cases; while, on the other hand, the once-inoculated virus would follow the usual and well,known laws. Having studied the sub- let for some years, weare mere and more inclined to believe that some such vifw, which alone tolerably harmonises the various phenomena as known, will probably be found the true one.-Live Stock Journal.

LIVE STOCK FROM: CANADA.—Mr. Dyke, the Canadian Government agent at Liverpool, reports that the exports of live stock from Canadian ports to this country during the year 1877 were as foHows 7412 cattle (including 65 pedigree shorthorns), 6825 sheep, 313 pigs, and 298 horses, showing an increase over last year's importations of 4645 cattle and 4218 sheep. Large numbers of Canadian cattle, sheep, and especially horses, have been brought vid New York, Boston, and other American ports in conse- quence of other Canadian lines of steamers being unable to meet the demands of this rapidly growing trade. The Dominion steamer Ontario arrived in the Mersey, bringing 128 head of Canadian live cattle, 237 hogs, 243 sheep, 35 cases of poultry, 305 barrels of apples, 135 boxes of Dears, and a very large cargo of grain and general farm produce.
