BEAUTY AND HER VISITORS. (From the" Cuslæt." ) I looked for BEAUTY --on a throne, •\ dazzling throne of light, I found her j And music poured its softest font, And flowers their sweetest breath, around her. I A score or two of idle gods. Some dresh'd as peers and some as peas.an is, Were- watching all her smiles and Iwd" And making compliments and presents, AND first YOUNG: lOVR, the rosy boy, Kxhibited his haw and arrows, And gave her manv a pretty toy, rorcbes, and bleeding hearts, and sparrows: She told him, as he passed, she knew Her court would scaicely do without him Bill yet—she hoped they were not true- There were some awkward tales about h; tn. WEALTH deemed, that magic Inri no charm More mighty titan the he brought her, And linked around her radiant arm Bright diamonds of the purest water: The goddess, u ith a scornful touch. Unclasped the gaudy, galling fetter; And said,—she thanked him very much,— She liked a wreafh of rose" betler. Then GENIUS snatched his golden late, And told a tale of love and glot-y The crowd around were hushed and mute, To hear so sad and sweet a story And BEAUTV mal ketl the minstrel's cheek, So very pale-tio bast was paler,— Vowed she could listen for a week: But really he should change his tailor As died the echo of his strings, A shadow v. Phantom knell before her, Looked all unutteiable things, And swore to see was to adore her He called her veil a cruel cloud, Her cheek a rose, her smile a battery- She fancied it was WIT that bowed, t'm almost certain it was FLATTERY*. There was a Beidame finding fault With every person, every feature, And by the sneer and bv the halt, knew at once the odious creature You see," quoth ENVY," I am come To bow, as ismy bounden (lut N They tell me Beauty is at home Impossible that can't be Beauty!" 1 heard a murmur far and wide Of'' Lord I how quick the dotard passes!" As TIME threw down at Beauty's side The prettiest of his clocks and glasses: Btri it was noticed in the throng, f-low ficati-v iiiirred the For, when she talked, the hands went wrong, And, whell she smiled, the sands stopped running. DEATH, in a doctor's wig and goti n, Came arm in arm with Lethe thither, And crown'd her with a wirhered crownt Aad hinted, Beauty too must wither! "Avaunt I" she cried "how caml" he liere h The frightful fiend I-he's my abhorrence I lIent and whispered in her ear, He shail not hurt yoti-sit to Lawrence."
LOVE'S MINSTREL LUTE. ( From the d Volume of Parry's Welsh Melodies.) AIR—" GOGKRDDAN." Love's minstrel lute was once so dear To every youthful breast, Kach maiden throng'd its notes to hear, Each swain its spells confessed. Love rambled oft, in hours of joy, Tiwough Pleasure's ftow'ry way, A light-hearted minstrel boy, Chanting bis merry merry lay. Love's minstrel lute has lost its tone, Its sweetest lav is sun);, And Passion's fervid breath has flown, That sigh'd those chords among. A blighted flower, a broken toy Love's lute must now remain. No pulse of Hope, no thrill of Joy Shall rouse its fire again For REASON came, amid the throng, To hear the God one day, Just like a blight the flow'rs among, And check'd the merry lav. His ic\ fingers, round the boyr Threw Wealth's enslaving chain, And love's soft lute, that sou! of joy, Ne'er sung of hliss again.
ECCLESIASTICAL ANTIQUITIES.—Among the curious relics of antiquity recently discovered in the tomb of Saint Cuthbert at Durham, are parts of the pontifical vestments of a bishop, consisting of a maniple and stole in a high state of preservation. These interesting remains having been, by the permission of tile Dean and Chapter, for- warded to London, arc now in the Tower, consigned to the care of that able antiquary, Mr. Petre, under whose superintendence a set of drawings, forming perfect fac- similes of the originals, are now in the course of execution at the expence of the Antiquarian Society. The gold lace, which appears to be constructed solely of fine gold wire, partially flattened, and without any admixture of silk thread, retains its metallic colour and brilliancy almost as freshly as when it was first put on, 90D years ago nor is the ground work on which it is laid in a greater state of decay. By an inscription in embroidery, perfectly legible to the most inexperienced eye, these robes appear to have been the gift of iEllied to Frithstan—a circnmsta ce which at once fixed their date, beyond all dispute, to the earlier part of the 10th century. In the whole catalogue of English bishops there is but one Frithstan, or Fritnes- tan, who, according to the most received authorities, suc- ceeded Denewuiph in the see of Winchester, A.D. 999, being one cf 1 he seven prelates shnnltaneonsly consecrated by IMilegrnund, Archbishop of Canterbury, in pursuance W" ot the mandate issued by King Edward the. elder (son and successor of the illustrious Alfred,) as the condition of removing the papal interdict under which the kingdom had been placed in consequence of a previous neglect in fHSing up certain vacant bishoprics. Bishop Godwin, in his work De PraesnHbns Angliae, assigns, indeed, the year ep& as the date of this.transaction but his learned anno- tator, Richardson,. pr6?es. that Denewtilph's disease did not take place till 909; whil both the Saxon Chronicle issd .Florentius speak of St. Frithstan as in possession of the see in 910. This Denewuiph, according to some of the earlier writers, was they ry swineherd of whom the popular tradition gees, that Alfred having taken refuge in his cottage, acted as his--scKvautyand-was so grievously vituperated by his wife for 1 ttiug her cakes burn. On the explllsionof the Danes, the gt-atefid monarch, says the story, finding his late, master tolerably shrewd, and not altogether illiterate, sent him to Oxford, and eventually raised him to the see of Winchester. It is almost a pity that Wharton in his Anglia Sacra, has demolished this account by an appeal to dates, which, like Lord Mayor Beckford's" facts" are "stubborn things." That Frith- stan was his immediate successor, however, Mahnesbury, Florentius, Ingalplitis, and others, all concur in affirming, as, also that he held the bishoprick till 931, when he resigned it, and was succeeded by Brinstan. St. Frithstan survived his abdication otsly a twelvemonth, dying in the odour of sanctity, A. D. 932. Between these two periods then, viz. 910 and 932, we must fix the date of these h's relics. With respect to the lady "who bestowed them on him, and by whose frir hands they were perhaps ein- broidered, we cannot anive at tilc same dCJce of cer- tainty, inasmuch as there were no less than three illustri- ous ladies of the name of /Efled in existence, during the period above mentioned. Of these, qne was dan hter to King Alfred, a second stood towards him in the velatk n v f daughter-in-law, and the third was his grand-daughter. The first has obtained a distinguished name in the chroni- cles of our Saxon ancestors, as one of the most stirring, Ysdowous, and wise princesses in our island's history. She married Ethelbert, Earl, of Mercia, whom she survived and afterwards rendered the most material service to her brother Edward, both in the fieid and cabinet, towards the subjugation of-his Danish enemies. The third became a un in the abbey at Winchester and she it was, in a!l probability (judging, however, from that circumstance alone, in the absence of all other testimony,) who made this handsome present to her diocesan. Among the figures worked in the embroidery, are those of Sixtus, Gregory, St. Laurence the deaccn, &c., with several other saints and popes, which afford a very pleasi g illus- tration of the costume of the period, and the then state of J embroidery. The drawings are going on with great care i nd accuracy; and we do not doubt that the engravings hereafter to be taken from them will be executed in such a manner as to be creditable to the artists and patrons.— Literary Gazette. MYSTERIOUS MURDER NEAR -RIPLEY.-On Friday I week, a horrid murder was perpetrated at South Stainley, near Ripley, on the Leeds and Harvowgate road. These are the particulars :—On that day, some boys, sons of the neighbouring cottagers, were looking for some birds' nests, in an occupied barn, a short distance from the lodge of Richard Lacey, Esq. While thus engaged they discovered a man laid down, apparently asleep, and they pursued their amusement some time longer, without tak- ing further notice of the circumstance. After leaving the place, however, they mentioned what they had seen. A I great number of depredations have lately been committed, to the terror of'the place, by a gang of villains who have infested that neighbourhood, and the fact that a strange man was, in the middle of the day, laid asleep in the un- occupied barn, gave rise to a suspicion that he might prove one of the thieves. To satisfy themselves as to who and what the man was, a party proceeded to the spot, where, in the situation the boys had described, they found a man—not indeed as had been supposed, -asleep; but with the purple current of life fast ebbing away, and in the last agonies of death. An instrument, similar to those used by blacksmiths, for the paring of horses' hoofs, and a formidable bludgeon, were found near the unfortunate man. A dread fid gash was inflicted on his head: his throat was much swelled and inflamed, and had the ap- pearance of having been repeatedly struck, as if with a large stick, or violently with a man's fist, and there were also marks as if the most desperate attempts had been made to produce death by strangulation. He essayed to speak, but nature was too much exhausted. The poor man was immediately conveyed to the Red Lion inn, in Stain- ley, where a surgeon was sent for. On seeing him, how- ever, the gentleman despaired of his i-ecovery, and, in answer to enquiries made of the man, he stated, with great difficulty, that his name was Joseph Harper, and that he came from Wolverhampton. He further said he had been very ill used, and that he had been robbed of Is. gd. This was all the poor man was'able to articulate, and he sur- vived but a few hours. After an investigation into the case, a verdict was returned of "Wilfnl murder against some person or persons unknown." The man is an utter stranger in that part of the country, and the affair is involved in the greatest obscurity. The conjecture is, that the murdered man was connected with the gang of thieves we have mentioned, and that he fell a sacrifice, in the un- inhabited barn, to his savage companions, in consequence of some quarrel respecting the booty.—-Leeds Intelligencer.
ATROCIOUS PIRACY. I (From: a Correspondent of the Public Ledger. The following narrative of the plunder, and murder of a part of the crew, of the TThan Fredericka, a Dutch brig of 200 tons, belonging to Haarlem, was detailed to a corre- spondent by a gentleman- just arrived from the Floridas, in the Loiely Nancy, now in the river:— The Fredericka sailed from- Jamaica on the 12th of April last, in charge of Mr. Stein, the mate, Captain Fredericka, the master and owner, having died at Kingston. There were seven men and two passengers, and the vessel was under order for Holland, but had to call at the Havannah for a large freight. The brig kept her course through the Leeward Passage until the evening of the 20th, whe a schooner hove in sight, and kept hovering about the brig the whole of that night. They were then not two days' sail from the Island of Cuba, and the schooner appeared to have come from either the Coloradas or St. Antonio, to the southward of the Havannah. On the morning of the 21st, at day light, the schooner was about two miles to lee- ward, and Mr. Stein, suspecting her to be a pirate, made all sail from her. However, the schooner was too fast, and about twelve o'clock came within half a mile, and hoisting Buenos Ayrean colours, fired a iun. The brig was quite unarmed, and hove too. The schooner then hailed in English, but not a soul on board the brig under- stood the language, and the only answer given was hoisting Dutch colours a boat was then sent from the schooner full of men, and before one o'clock the brig was in posses- sion of the pirate, whose act of savage barbarity are now to be recorded. The pirates, to the number of 30, ran- sacked every part of the vessel, and took every thing of value they could lay their hands upon. The Dutch sailors, in their own language, remonstrated, but were laughed at by the ruffians, who proceeded deliberately to compel the wretched men to what is termed "walk the plank." This was on the afternoon of the same day they seized the brig. One poor man, upon being laid hold on by two of the pi- rates to pinion, blindfold, and fasten a shot to his feet, made a desperate resistance, in which he fixed his grasp upon the throat of one of the ruffians, and they both tum bled over the side and were drowned. Senor Baptista, of the fism o; Ramone, Balcussus, and Baptista, of Havan- nah, remonstrated with a short man, who spoke the Spa- nish language, but from circumstances which have since transpired was believed to be an Irishman, and who ap- peared to be the commander, and endeavoured to influ- ence him to prevent the Dutchmen being murdered. The ruffian only answered by firing a pistol at his head but next moment, as if by a retributive justice, fell dead upon the deck—the other passenger having plunged a knife suddenly into his back. Five of the Dutchmen, ob- serving the fate of Mr. Stein and two others, ran below, and arming themselves with knives, made a determined resistance, but were overpowered by the pirates, all of whom were well armed. Before six o'clock in the even- ing the whole of the crew of the brig were thrown into the sea, and one of the passengers, a planter, belonging to Sa- vannah, was stretched, mortally won i(led, on the deck. The on'y remaining one was Senor Baptista, and he was pulled out from beneath the boat, where he had escaped daring the conflict between the pirates and the ill-fated crew of the brig. In a state of dreadful terror, he pointed out a locker, where a box, containing a considerable amount in specie, belonging to Captain Fredericka was concealed, and for this Information his life was spared. Tiie In'g was tlvn scuttled, and went before the wind, and Senor baptista was in thr e days after landed at St. An- tonio. He reached the Havannah in about three weeks, n I related to the agents the fate of the Fredericka and her crew. Five persons were then in custody, upon sus- picion of plundering an American vessel, and he was di rected b" the authorities to go to the jail and look at them. He immediately identified two of them, who were on board the pirate vessel which plundered the Fredericka. One of them was an Irishman, who admitted that he was in the schooner, and said he sailed from St. Bartholomew's in her. He, the same night, attempted to commit suicide, by making a wound in his throat. The prisoners were taken at Cuba, endeavouring to ncgociate the sale of some merchandise. They were not tried when the Nancy sailed from the Havannah. The pi;,it' schooner is a large fast sailing vessel, of" about 130 tons burthen, with raking masts, and about eight car- ronades and swivel guns. She has been noticed in com- pany with a smack rigged vessel, lately captured, with slaves, and condemned at Barbadoes. The above short and afflicting narrative is given by a gentleman of undoubted veracity, and may, perhaps, ex- plain the cause of the absence of the long-lost Fredericka, of Haarlem. The Leeward Passage, and the Gulph of Florida, are completely beset by avowed piratical schooners, full of men.
SHOCKING AND SINGUI.AU ACCIDENT.—On Thursday afternoon week, a shocking and rather singular acci- dent took place at a factory, opposite the Bee-Hive public-house, in Jems-street, Ancoats-lane. A ber of men vv^ere Employed in hoisting- up into one of the top rooms, which is occupied by Messrs. Barker, several bundles of iron rods of the length of nine or f ten yards a piece. A bundle had been elevated to the height of five stories,and was in the act of being drawn into the factory, when one of the rods slipped out perpendicularly, and descended upon a young man named James Annan, a cotton spinner, out of work, who had volunteered his assistance in hoisting the bundles. The sharp end of the rod entered his shoul- der, and passing- through his body came out at the back, beneath the shoulder blade, and then struck his leg- which it broke in two. He was immediately car- ried home to his residence in German-street, where he remains without hope of recovery.-JJJartcltester M er- cury. NEW POST OFFICE REGULATIONS.—The commission- ers appointed to inquire into the different departments of the post office, having" discovered that the privilege granted to soldiers and sailors, of sending letters by 1 one penny pustage has been abnsed, to the injury of the revenue, the following notice has been issued by Sir Francis. The indulgence granted to sol- diers and seamen, in their correspondence, having been greatly abused, by the parties obtaining the signatures of their officers to letters not written by themselves, or on their own business, and also permitting letters to be addressed to them, although they are intended for other persons, the object in both eases being to evade the legal rates of postage, [ am commanded to directs that whenever a postmaster has reason to suspect this malpractice, he will charge the letters with a postage of live shillings and all such letters, if refused by the parties to whom they are addressed, are to be irtdosed by me by the first post." An odd story is current at the Stock Exchange, re- specting a foreign gentleman, a holderof Danish bonds, who lost a large sum of money by taking a quotation from Siiakspeare in its literal sense, instead of the ge- neral application for which it is commonly used. His broker received a letter from him in the French lan- gunge, in which he informed him that he had read in one of the papers, "that there was something rotten in the state of Denmark" and desired him, consequently, without delay, to sell all his Danish bonds, as he could not satisfy himself, after such an assurance, to hold them any longet- as an investment. The broker either through attachment to a good commission, or from knowing as little of Shakspeare as his employer, or that his rule was to "follow orders and do wrong," complied with the request, & converted the -to.;k into money at the marker price of the day. Danish bonds have since risen nearly 5 per cent. in value. GAME PRESERVING.—At an estate in Oxfordshire of ..1,200 acres, not far from Wallingford, the game has for the last three or four years cost the landlord, though there is but little poaching, above twelve shil- lings a-head, taking a brace of partridges as equal to a hare. We understand, that a gentleman of extensive pro. pertv, in the eastern part of Somersetshire, intends offering himself in opposition to Sir Thomas Leth- bridge, as a candidate for the representation of that county, whenever an opportunity shall occur. Several gentlemen have already determined on supporting the opposition,-Bristol Paper. CAUTION.—A man, who described himself to be a I. gentleman's servant, engaged a respectable furnished house in St. George's place, Cheltenham, stating that it was for his master. He lived there for four days, during which period he received several letters, and frequently atked if any parcel had ariived for him, as he expected some goods. At the end of the fourth day, he suddenly decamped, leaving' behind him a trunk, which, on examination, was found to be filled with hav. -J DEATH OCCASIONED BY A BULL.-Saturday se'n- night, an inquest was held in the parish of Northmoi- ton, on the body of Mr. G. Westcott, yeoman, of Lans- combe, who, while returning home on the day prece- ding, was met in the road by a bull; a woman, who lives in a cottage near the spot, saw Mr. Westcott with his legs on the horns of the bull, and his head on the ground; she got on the hedge and made a noise to drive the bull away; the deceased called out to her, "do my dear soul come to me he again repeated the same words, and then turned his face to the ground and was not heard to speak again. John Smith, black- smith, saw the deceased lying on his back in the hedge- and the hull tumbling him about: he threw a pitch- fork at the bull, which drove him away. They then went to the body, which they found bruised from head to foot, two of the ribs broken, and life extinct. The bull was shot soon after the above disastrous occur- rence. MURDER.—A trial took place in the High Court of Justiciary, Edinburgh, on Tuesday, It was the very singular case of John Steuaft and Margaret Wright, for poisoning Robert Laniontwith launanum, for the p n purpose of robbing him. The crime was committed on board the Toward Castle steam boat. It was proved in the evidence, that it was Steuart's common practice to carry laudanum with him for which he had a cant name, in allusion to the use he had made of it, to de- stroy or stupify persons in this way. Both the panels displayed the most hardened indifference during the whole trial, and even the last sentence of the law was pronounced. They are to be executed on the 19tn of August. The case from its uncommon feature of atro- city, had excited great interest. A dog belonging to Major Russell, which had been inadvertently locked some time ago in a room of an un- occupied house in Portland place, was discovered on Tuesday last alive, and is now doing well, although, as may be expected, reduced to a very meagre state. The time that he had been without food of any de- scription was no less than seventeen days! Some paper hangings which had betn deposited in the apartments, as well as the door, were found much gnawed. -Brigh- ton Gazette.

When they are put out to dry they will look white with the salt, but by taking a dry cloth and rubbing it over, this will come off. The Amazon, the great river of Peru, is the most extraotdinarv stream in the known world. From its rise in the Lake Huonuco to its termination in the Pa- cific Ocean its length is not less than one-fifth of the earth's circumference. At least 200 rivers contribute to swell its waters, which, at its influence with the sea, extends its mouth to a breadth of 180 miles, depriving the ocean of its saltness to a distance of 400 miles. DUBLIN, JULY 13.—Letters have been this day re- ceived from Borrisokane, which state that a magistrate of the comity of Tipperary was murdered these yester- day in the open day by the mob. I heard the name of the gentleman, but it has escaped my recollection, and 1 fear I should be too late for the post should I now go to make inquiries; but yuu may rely upon the fact —Morning Herald. MARKET BARUOROUGII, JULY 14.—A ewe, the pro- perty of Mr. John Smith, of Prior's Hardwick, near Southam, has had 44 lambs in 22 years, viz. 18 times she has had two lambs each year, twice three at a time, and twice one each time; they have all bl en reared. The ewe was reared by hand in the year lfeOtJ. Three years since she lost the use of one pap, and one of her lambs that year was reared by hand, DETECTION OF AN EXTENSIVE ILLICIT SOAP FACTORY. For some time past an unaccountable deficiency being experienced in that branch of the revenue which arises from the manufacture of soap, the othccrs of Excise have been on the alert, and on Monday Thomas Gater, an active and intelligent surveyor of the department, having received information that in Saundev's Lane, Fuiham, an extensive private soap manufactory was carrying on, proceeded thitherwal1 his assistants. On gaining an entrance into the premises, he found the business in full progress, and conducted on a scale more adapted to a licensed house than to the confined mode in which illicit transactions are generallv con. ducted. There were utensils of the most perfect, de- scription, ami a quantity of yellow soap, about 3U cwt. in tiie frames, and almost ready for cielivei-y; and be- sides a quantity of lees, tallow, and culm, in the course of manufacture. Ail these he seized upon. Neither i licirise nor any other anthc-rity tor the wor1, being produced, he transferred them to the stores of the Ex- cise Office in Broad street, where they await the adju- dication of the commissioners. For the last three months the traffic has been carried on at these premi- ses,- and it is scarcely possible to calculate what" the loss to the public by the illegal commerce may have been. j CELERITY OF PUN notorious thief na- med Hogg, was indicted at the Westminster Sessions on Friday, for stealing a great coat, the property of William Mavhank, footman to Miss Fox, sister to Lord Holland. At about, half past twelve at night, the prisoner stole Use coat from the coach-box, and ran away with it up Charles, street, towards Saint James's- sq ti ii re. He was pursued and taken with the coat, upon his arm, carried at eleven o'clock the next morning before the Magistrate at Queen-square, committed, tried, convicted, and sentenced to be transported for seven years, before three o'clock in the day. On Friday an unfortunate young woman, named Mary Weir, who had conceived herself slighted by her lover, bought six drachms, or 360 drops, of laudanum, in a laboratory in the High-street, with which she went into a close and drank it off. Immediately after, to di-ive off the lioi-roi-s with which she seemed to be seized, she went into a di'am shop with two female acquaintances, and there acknowledged what she had done. She died in half an liour.-Cale(lo;zia)z ,,Uer- cury. DISSENTING CONGREGATIONS.—A circular has been issued by Mr. Peel, calling- for returns to be made in the different parishes of the kingdom, of the number of places of worship not of the Church of England, dis- tinguishing the sect or persuasion, and the numbers of which each congregation consists. 0 A decision lately at Westminster Hall has establish- ed the point, that parish officers receiving a particular sum previous to the birth, from the father of an illegi- timate child, to free him from future claims on account of such child; act illegally; and that the officers can- not, according to law, do more than accept a security imdeninify the parish*. PRINTERS' PENSION SOCIETY.—On Sunday, a ser- mon was preached at Christ Church, Newgate-street, before the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs, hy Dr. Holling- worth, Archdeacon of Huntingdon, for the benent of the above excellent charity. The Rev. Divine chose for his text the 13th verse of the 29th cliaptei- of' Job- The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me, and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy." From these appropriate words an admirable discourse was delivered by the preacher, wherein he powerfully advocated the cause of charity generally, but more especially in favour of the Printers' Pension Society. "To the matchless art of printing," said the eloquent divine, "the most powerful influence on the destinies and happiness of man-the greatest tendency to enlighten the understanding and improve the cha- racter—and the most rational views of our duty to God, and of the benevolence we owe to our fellow-men, were to be attributed." He concluded his sermon with a powerful appeal to the feelings of the congre- gation in favour of the aged and the widow, in which he truly stated that the immense labour attending the preparation of the daily journals, the midnight toil necessary to produce an early publication, and the constant and unremitted attention requisite to ensure regularity, demanded from the journeyman printer an expenditure of mental and bodily strength which pro- duced, at an early period of life, debility and prema- ture decay. TRICK UPON A TRAVELLER.—A worthy Divine from the Noith, who visits the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scotland every yçar, has for time immemo- rial taken up his annual abode in a certain tavern in the old town. This healthy mountaineer has an in- stinctive horror at all deleterious mixtures in human food, whether solid or liquid and the reason he gave for frequenting the above tavern was, that he could always command the luxury of fresh eggs to break- fast.' These he always boiled himself, and would take none except he found them warm from the nest. This year he appeared as usual, like the bittern at her ap- pointed time; but, unfortunately laid his fore-paw on a couple of plump eggs, but quitecold, and apparently laid yesterday. The man of the church waxed wroth, and summoned the waiter. Betty assured him they were fresh, but could not explain why they were cold. The landlady was next taken to task, and threatened with the loss of a customer, unless this suspicious phenomenon was satisfactorily cleared up. "Deed, sir, replied the hostess, "I am unco sorry for't; but to tell Gude's truth, sit, I couldtia" zet the cat to sit on them this morning!"—Edinburgh Evening Post. A NEW DISGUISE.—A fellow who was confined in the watch-house a few nights ago, contrived to effect n 21 his escape, but was soon rc-taken. On being ques- tioned by the Lord Mayor, how he got out, he thus naively replied :—Vy, your vorship, you see ven I was alone I looked about and I sees a vindor at the top of the vatchus, and so I goes up, and as it vas open, I put out my head and my body followed ater. Now, says I to myself, if I leaps into that ere road vhere the people valks, these here hofficers will see me again, but if I leaps into that ere river, vy your lordship, they wouldn't see none o' me. (A laugh ) The Lord Mayor—And so you leaped into the water? Defend- ant-No, your lordship, I leaped into the mud, and if they had seen me afterwards they wouldn't a known me, because, your vorship, I wa'nt clean by no means. (Laughter.) TIT FOR TAT.—At Wolverhampton, a dashing per- son in a gig, on passing the turnpike, threw a shilling down in the mud; the gate-keeper took it up, and a without any remark, quietly placed the change there, toVhe chagrin of the gentleman in the gig, who de- f cr scended for it vociferating curses all the time.
