Adopting a Foundling.—An interesting incident has j'llst marked the closing of the, Council-General of the. Rhone at Lyons.

Acclimatisation Society of Great Britain. -r-At the special meeting of the council of iliis society, n. Mr. Hawkins presiding, Mr. Francis read a memoran- dum with respect to the piscicultural establishment; After iWme, discussion the following resolution was agreed to" That Mr. Francis be authorised-to erect a building and apparatus for fecundating and latch- ing fish, ova on his premises at Twickenham at an expense not exceeding < £ 100 (such apparatus toremain the property of the society), to engage a man to assist iQ'^iKih operations for a period of sixteen weeks, at a salary of 2os. per week; to spend < £ 10 for the first year for the npply of water to the apparatus, and £ 10 in HefcS; on behalf-of the society/' Mr. Francis an- srniiecu Ihit the increase of funds' which he had alreauy obtained for the society on account of the proj^t^d ^-piscicultural branch amounted to between ■0 and £ 80.

A, letter was. read from Lord Walsingham, stating tha^ he would be glad to increase his subscription to .society, if, as has been proposed, they should turn Jjeir attention to pisciculture."

Stealing, Cats-l-A man, nanjsd Lecolas. appeared recently before the Tribunal of Correctional Police of. Paris, charged with stealing and killing., two cats, the property of a widow named Bupont. The com plainant stated that as her house was infested with rats and mice she was obliged to several cats, but could never keep them long, as they were always' stolen as soon as they got fat. Having been, told by a neighbour that the defendant dealt, in dead eats, she went to his house and there found/the sking of her, lost animals. The defendant: admitted that the eats were, found in his possession, as well as thirteen others, ani that he had about the same number every day, for it was his business to buy dead cats of the rag-pickers and afterwards sell their skins and other proceeds. As to the complainant's twoeats, he Iiad purchased them of a young rag-picker napied .Jules, but he .did.n.o.t JiiiOtV his family name. At this moment a woman exclaimed, But I know it;: his name is Dupont; he is the complainant's son, and he always kill his mother's cats as soon as they are fat enough for.sals.II saw. him sell the defendant the two cats in question." The President having told her to come forward and state what she knew, she went on. to say that shs had long knswn the |de-feB.darft, wliy wis « £ holiest1 fcfeh, and got-his living-by-buying- dead cats and- selling their skins to the furriers, their fat to the frying shops, and their-flesh to the low eating-houses—at least all that m did not eat himself. This statement was confirmed by other evidence, and the tribunal-consequently ac- quitted the defendant. Outrage on Cattle.—We are. sorry to record a fearful act of cruelty and apparent revenge committed in the county of Clare. Four in-calf cows belonging to a farmer named Henness'y, who lives at Oarhuoreagh, near Kildysart, were maliciously, stabbed with a sharp instrument by some miscreant at present unknowa- After one of the cows had been-stabbed it was driven forcibly into a limekiln, where it suffered additional torture, and from which it Was extricated next morning with' great difficulty.. At the last" assize' for this county, Mr. Macnamara, solicitor, appeared before the grand jury to claim for Hennessy compensation to the amount of £12 for malicious injury done to a cow belonging to him that had. been killed at night in the field. The graiicl jury awarded the compensation claimed. The Pearl ChaJleDge.—Some time ago we stated that Mr. Faxquharson had challenged anyoneto produce a finer pea-tl than that in his possession. The time expired on Saturday, and Mr.. Farquharson wa-s ex- tremely disappointed to find that no competitor had accepted his challenge. He feas now offered to stake another ^615—making aE20 ili all—against any British peavl that may be found superior to the. one M his. pos- sesion, including the," Great Pearl-" belonging to the Buke-of Athole,. add also the pearls in the Scottish crown at Ed^imrgh G^stle.

Another CoB-tinental Duel.—One of those senseless duels whicfe. are now, t'jrtunately. nef rly out of vogue eves 011 thg- Continent, took place at'Milan, on the 1st insi,, between M. Fll^d Filippi and M, Matchovich, editor of the O crto The cause of the quarrel was an1 article which {3,'ppeared in the paper detrimental to M.FiliTOi, the facts stated not being true. The .editor, disclaiming any h^ii m the matter.^ said he was ready to' give the «at ^faction demanded. So these two men met and fought, first, with pistols without doing any harm, then with words, for the determination was they were to fight till one was hors de combat. M. Filippi received.a very severe, but not dangerous, wound m the face—it extended from the right ear to the nose—and M. Matchovich two slight wounds on the arm. Having done so much they shook hand's, the one gentlemen stating that he was perfectly satisfied, the other 'that! he regretted the article having appeared, and that he entertained the. greafcect esteem for his adversary; and honour was, sati -fied When recovered (-says a contemporary) they are both coming over to the Donkey Show. Officers and Crew of the Florida -Captain Maffitt is forty-two years old, and is the oldest officer onboard.. All the-.officers-Were born in the Confederate States, and most of them were officers in the United States' Navy before the outbreak of the war. Of the other officers none are more than twenty-three.

Capt. Maffitt was a lieutenant in the United States': Navy before, the outbreak,, and in thatcapacitydistinguishecl himself greatly. In 185S he commanded the brig Dol- phin,, when .he captured the slayer: Echo, with four liuna-td slaves onboard, and took her into Charleston. For this feat his health was drunk at a public dinner at Liverpool; and it is a curious fact, for those who maintain^ that the civil war in America was founded on .the slave, question, that the commander of this im- portant Confederate cruiser should be the very man who has distinguished himself actively against the slave trade. In 1859 Captain Maffitt commanded the United States' steamer Crusader, and captured four slavers. Sensations Wanted in Australia.—Those two spirited and enterprising gentlemen who netted large fortunes a, short time since by a speculation with our English professional cricketers, Messrs. Spiers and Spend; are now in;London, and open to an engagement with any first-class Britisher who would" draw" in their thi4-v4iig- colony. They offered Mr. Dickens a tremendous' sum to give readings over thóre, but he declined With thank^, for the present at all events.

The cost of the park and the bitildings in it is estimated at • £ 30,000. Lail Russell was present, and received a warm welcome. The noble, earl was presented with the freedom of the burgh, and in his reply, touching up6n the topics of the day, he referred to one 'subject of rmoife tha,n jiassxag interest. He stated that the efforts of the Government would be used to "defeat any attempt to engage our people in enterprises incoii- i&Menl with neutral position." s.y QUthfalBurglars.

Nesbite. was unable speak to the cause of her death; biit,:a bottle of.3*,u3anum was feund upon her. 2is to the ma,n, Mr. Gibbon said Frocix the whole in- vestigation .and examination, I am of opinion, first, "h at the deceased died from injuries to the head and a gssat loss d blood (apparently several quarts) j second, that these injin-Lee .a-nd -tlus' violence were infected by ssene person OT persons other than the debased himself; third, that after death t'he body was lahLout and a TiHow placed smder its head; fourth, that the body was painted p: ¡hl.'ushedcyer with tolerafcly 'hot g&a tar (probably with a view of pre- ventiffiig- detection from.smell as Jong as'possible); and, fifth, a sheetond counterpane had been placed 011 the body, and tucked under the head by some person I or persons other -than the deceased. Some other evidence having been taken, the iiiqn.esi was again adjourned- Y/ilful Destruc-tfon of Briefer—On Monday jaaornmg it was ascertained that no less- than from ,13,090 to 14,600 bricks fead been destEOyed by being Sampled upegiduring the previous night,"in the briek"^ V«5 belonging to Mr. Jo:m Tetlow, situate in Cow- i^i^.4 i e, A htoji. It seeas that the bricks made by Kr. Teflon have, for some time, been the work of vaTÍGt;-fJ members of his-OWE family only.Notwith- e<ta this, abGuttwo mov&hs ago, a large number of were destroyed, but of which no publicity was made at the time.: A fortnight ago Mr. Tetlow engaged- wo additional men, who, although they had applied to be admitted members of the union, for some reason or otikr refused; and, Mr. Tetlow having retained theja in his service, it is conjectured that he has been made to pay the penalty for go doing. The number of batte, denlolisbed is seven, which have taken upwards of three weeks' labour, the cost being 6s. lOd. per 1,000 for moulding, &c., and Is. 6d„ per 1,000 for casting the clay, to which has to be added the payment of quarterage, &c. Mr. Tetlow has offered a reward for the apprehension of the offenders.- A Folieeman Charged' with Murder.—A police-constable at Bury (Lancashire) has been com- mittedto the New Bailey, Manchester, on the charge of murdering- his wife, in February last. In that month the body of a woman- was found in the Bolton and Bury Canal, at Pendleton, about two iriiids from Man- y I chester. There was a, bruise on one arm, but nothing to- exeiie-. suspicion of foul play, and the result of an inquest was the finding of an open verdict of Found drowned," Up to the time of interment the body had hot been";identified, ^ft has now transpired that the prisoner, left Bavy with his wife the night before the body was found, their supposed åntentionbeing to visit the wife's sister, who resided at Pendleton. The pri- soher,"Who was in plain clothes,, returned to Bury-the same1 night, without his 'wife. In answer to inquiries" he told some people that she had gone to Ireland, and to he, mentioned -other places.The. wife's sister i'esidmg: in Pendleton, became very uneasy about her Aid,hearing of the o dy iv:d:in the canal, jsvent to inspect the clothes, and'identUled" them'as' belenging to the prisoner's wife.' The matter was then- communicated ■ to the Bury. police, who apprehended him, took hiff be-fore the on Ti-iogdk), and was by:-them sent to the New Bailey, oh .rttnand. Meantime the police-are "engaged- in -getting^up evi- dence against the prisoner, and it is expected applica- tion will be made to the Secretary of State for power to exhume the body of the woman found in the canal. Spirit-ism and insanity.—In spite of every effort to prevent thes.prea.dof the new doetrine-of the visitation of the spirits of the dead, to those who are in possession of the peculiar gift called medium, when in. a. state of the disease (forsuch it must be called; is aJxeeting a large number of females in different parts'of. France. In one of the lunatic asylums of a department one-third of the patients under confinement there have the origin of their ia- firmity in demonology. There is seldom any violence exhibited in this form of insanity, but a state of exaltation which might lead to suicide or the commis- sion of crime. Soporifics seem to be the remedy principally relied on. Moral remedies seem to be perfectly inefficacious. No attempt at recalling the patient to reason by argument or by experiment seems to produce the slightest baneSt.—f<,< f's Latter. Improved Separate Dwellings.— Since Alder- man Waterlow has introduced to public notice an idea of improvement in the homes of the million, the subject has become popular; the -Times has given space to the letters of S. G. 0., who disclaims, against the shelter provided the agricultural labourers ly country landlords, whilst block after block of buildings are being erected at New Cross by Mr. James Mortimer, of 47, Greshari-street, who appears to have hit the right nail on the head, namely, the complete separation of families in small houses, at cheap rentals, each separate dwelling having all the comforts and con- veniences given to houses of the highest class, and bearing a remarkable comparison between the accom- modation now afforded to the mechanic and the Working man in town, where the families are too closely associated to add either to health or morality. Mr. Mortimer's plans cannot fail to be appreciated EE a great boon to the building trade; for, whilst he shows that the erecting of moral homes can be a profitable investment, he at the same time assures the philanthropist that money expended in this way will give a better return for capital than is obtained from common modern buildings, and likewise add to the morality of the nation.
