A WEDDING GIFT.-Are you about to have the marriage knot tied ? Are you on the eve of forming new ties by marriage ? Are you going to be spliced ? You will find all the information you can possibly require in The Book of Knots, illustrated by 172 Examples, showing the manner of making every knotr tie, and splice." Read it, and make an example of yourself. A STRAY CAST.—The accusations of insincerity, so frequently brought against the M.P. for Birmingham, have, we fear, more truth in them than we have hitherto been willing to acknowledge. We are assured that though he would wish to be considered the last person: who would be guilty of playing tricks with the borough or county franchise, yet he is never better pleased than when (north of the Tweed) he has either a six or U pounder on a line.' A JOURNALISTIC JOTTING.—The Glowworm, which started as a sporting paper, has of late given its atten- tion so much to racing that the lovers of other sports are hurt at the preference. We believe the disciples of Izaak Walton meditate starting a fishing organ, to be entitled the Lobworm. COMING OF AGE.—The Government measure of Re form, though rather a short measure for its age, has attained its majority—twenty-one. We are not sure whether it can be said to have reached years of discre- tion. Too B.aD.-Those who would "rob a poor man of his beer" are frequently the very peopde who would rob him of his 'bacca too. They should be known as "bar clay and Barclay's." LEGAL OBSERVANCE OF LENT.-The Ritualists will be shocked to hear that on Monday last week the Lord High Chancellor of England had the Lord Chief Justice, the Judges, and the other legal officers, including thei Queen's Counsel, to breakfast with him. Of course the ly Lord Chancellor s breakfast-party included the Master of the Rolls. SWEET WILLIAM.— Certain Tories are fond of sneering at Mr. Gladstone as The People's William." Of. course it is a question of taste but surely one may be allowed to prefer" The People's William" to Mr. Disraeli's Bill. "THE RIGHT MAN," ETC.—The application of this ancient saying, positively for the last time, was irresist- ible on reading that in the Oxford boat the Bow was Mr. Bowman. A DEFINITION.—" Making the most of it "-Fbcling; a bung and getting a barrel made for it.
