SNIP, SNAP !-When the journeymen tailors struck the other day, they displayed an ignorance of natural philosophy which a paternal Government is anxious to remove. They were not aware of the reverberation of force—in plain words they did not know that when you strike an object it strikes back with exactly the same force. In order to show this rebound, the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer ia going to claim income-tax from the tailors who were proved to be earning three pounds a week. On the whole, they won't win much by their recent goame of Poole. DE DYE IN D-Y.Em.-In our last volume we drew the public attention of mothers of large families, who were anxious to eoonomise in washing, to the impor- tant domestic fact that kids could be cleaned at two- pence a pair We now notice a still further improve- ment, which must be most interesting to all negrophiliflts and Exeter-hail believers in the superiority of the nigger over the white man, and it is to the effsefe that" kids can be dyed black at a very trifling cort, FLOWERS OF SPEECII.-Profes-,or De Candolle, at the horticultural banquet at the Mansion-house, drew attention to the flourishing condition of the science in countries with a free political system, and said that with a day's pay of the millions of soldiers massed on the continent a conservatory might be constructed reaching from Paris to Berlin. Yes! and instead of the blood-red blossom of war," they might grow everlasting peas." A LAY.—The Westmoreland Gazette tells a story about a hen which was sitting on thirteen eggs in a room where there was a cat with four kittens. On the eggs being taken from under her she drove off the cat and took possession of her offspring. Very natur. A hen so much devoted to a sedentary occu- pation must have been of a litt-er-ary turn. MASONRY WITH A MORAL.- ArchitectF3 about to compete in designs for building the new Palace of Justice will doubtless bear in mind the gaying that justice is blind. Therefore they wiil very likely omit to make proper arrangements for lighting that edifice. INTERESTING.—Dear Mr. Pancb,—I read tha other day that "the judges were churched." I hope they are all as well as can ba expected.—Yours truly, LAVINIA D. RAMSBOTHAM. Theodore- Hookham Cottage. THE RIGHT PLACE.—Tn the fcrthcottibjg Inter- national Exhibition at Paris, the contributions of Nice and Savoy will be put, of course, in the Annexe. NEW NAME FOR THE PETROLEUM ARISTOCRACY —The Oiligarchy. WHY is a retired oculist like an inland revenue officer ? Because ha is an ex eyesm&B. SITTINGS IN ERROR.—A pew in a Mormcinif chapel.
