THE BISHOP AND OMNIBUS DRIVER. Before railways were introduced to that part of the country, an omnibus ran between Worcester and Kidderminster, and the Bishop, wanting to get home, mounted the heavy-laden vehicle. The coachman soon begins belabouring his horses. fray, good man, do not whip the poor animals so, says the Bishop. What do you know about it, old blow-broth ? says the man. "I will have you punished for cruelty if you do not desist." If you dou't shut up, and let the 'osses alone, I will give the butt end of that to you which the 'osses have only had the lash of." By-and-bye the horses pull up at the White Hart, Hartlebury; the Bishop dismounts and proeeeds on his way home. "Who was that old stick-in-the mud," asks the coachman of the landlord. Why," says he, that's the new Bishop." "Goody, goody," cries our Jehu, "I will run after him, and crave his pardon." So, without stopping to put down his whip, he ran down tlia avenue. The Bishop, seeing the man running behind him, whip in hand, thought he was coming to adminiutei- that which he had promised, so he took to his heels, the man running after him, and shouting, "Stop, my lord! pardon, my lord! pardon!"
