A Wondertul Tree.—In the birch wood of Cul- loden there is a remarkable tree, well worthy of note. Somewhere about thirty years ago a little giant of the forest was blown down in a storm, and fell right across a deep gully or ravine, which it completely spanned; and the top branches took root on the other side. From the parent stem no less than fifteen trees grew up perpendicularly, all in a row and there they still flourish in all their splendour, while the parent stem evinces no token of decay. Several of the trees are not less than thirty feet high. The tree is a larch fir. The Cabinet.—We (Post) have reason to believe that the whole of the members of the Cabinet will meet on the 26th inst. in London. The Earl de Grey, the Duke of Somerset, the Earl Granville, and the Right Hon. T. M. Gibson, who are at present absent from the metropolis, will be in town by that day. At the present time Viscount Palmerston, the Lord Chan- cellor, the Earl of Clarendon. Lord Stanley of Aiderley, the Right Hon. Charles P. Villiers, the Right Hon. Sir Charles Wood, and the Right Hon. Edward Card well, are in town. The Earl Russell is at Pembroke-lodge, Richmond-park, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer is with Mrs. Gladstone and family at Hawarden.cattle.
