Reporting.-Boswell relates, that having boasted of bis reporting ability, Johnson took up a book, and read a while; and then called upon Boswell to re-read from his notes. The result was, that Boswell was ashamed of his work. Were the persons who complain of the newspapers put upon the same trial, they would undoubtedly have the same signal failure.

Suicides by Fire.-There have been only three instances of self-destruction by fire: that of the philosopher Empedocles, who threw himself into the crater of Mount Auna; that of a Frenchman, who, in imitation of the former, precipitated himself, in 1820, into the crater of Vesuvius; and that of an Englishman, who, about twenty years back, jumped into the fur: Dace of a forge.

Snuff.- A woman asked a doctor whether taking snuff was hurtful to the brain. “No," said the doctor, “ for he that has any brains will not take snuff.”

Horrible Traffic. The “Sydney Gazette," of the 19th of April, 1831, contains a government order, the object of which is to put an end to a most singular kind of traffic carried on by the masters and crews of vessels trading between that colony and New Zealand. The trade consists in the purchase of “human heads, preserved in a manner peculiar to that country." This practice, as the governor truly states, “has a tendency to increase the sacrifice of human life among savages, whose disregard of it is notorious.". But which party are we to consider the savages in this case-- the New Zealander, who prepares the commodity, or the European who makes the purchase?

A Fact connected with Whitecross-street Prison.A street-keeper, (who is now, I believe, removed from his office,)'in New Bond-street, was in the habit of sending the prisoner, who swept a crossing in that street, on messages, and dever paid him any thing for his trouble, but the prisoner occasionally borrowed a few pevce of him, which he thinks might amount to 1s. 9d. Not receiving ang payment, the prisoner declined going on any further errands for him. The plaintiff then brought a woman to put on his crossing, which prisoner resisted, and the former applied to some of the inhabitants to remove the prisoner, which they declined, saying he had always conducted himself with propriety ; in consequence of which, the street-keeper took the present method of revenging himself, and summoned the prisoner for 1s. 9d. which, with the costs, the prisoner offered to pay at 28. per month ; but the street-keeper had influence enough to persuade the commissioners he could pay the whole at once: they therefore made an order that he should pay the same, and 3s. 61. costs, on the Wedday next after the 3d day 'of October, 1831, which not being able to comply with, he is now incarcerated in Whitecross-street for ten days.' March 17, 1832.

A Word to Washer-women.-In washing printed calicoes, put a table-spoonful of common salt into the suds, and the colours will remain as bright as before.

Arrest for Debt.--It appears, from the affidavits which are officially filed, that, in two years and a half, 70,00) persons have been arrested for debt in and about London, the law expenses of which have amounted to upwards of half a million ; in addition to which, probably, quite as many more actions have heen brought on uobailable writs, for debts under 201. the costs on which must bave been little less than another half million.

Imprisonment for Debt.-The North American Review ioforms us that the number of persons imprisoned in the debtor's apartment in Philadelphia, from June 6, 1829, to Feb, 24, 1830, was 817, of whom there were- 30 whose debts were below 1 dollar; 233 above 1 and below 5 dollars ; 174 above 5 and below 10 dollars; 140 above 10 and below 20 dollars; 142 above 20 and below 100; 98 above 100 dollars.-Of 252 of these unfortunate people, the debts were 8663 dollars and the coasts 8448; and of 64 the debts were 858 and the costs 8,120 dollars!"-Atheneum.

On being seized with Cholera.-On the first attack, bleeding, or hot water and vapour baths, are to be resorted to. The former is a surgical operation, and dangerous in its performance without proper analomical knowledge: with regard to the latter, we have lately heard of a novel mode of exhibiting the vapour bath by means of a tea kettle; the patient is enclosed in a blanket, and the spout of the kettle introduced between the folds : the water is to be kept boiling, and a most efficient vapour bath is produced.

Scarlet Runners.-The perennial kidney-bean, exhi. bited by Mr. Lindley lately, at the horticultural meeting in Norwich, was the well-known scarlet rupner Phaseolus multiflorus. Johnson, in his edition of “Gerarde, 1633," says it was introduced into this country by John Tradescant, but from whence it does not appear. It was figured by Cornutus, in his " Canad. Plant,” p. 181. t. 185, printed in 1635. The plants exhibited were some from seeds sown in April 1830. These were taken up in November, and preserved in some dry mould in the cellar through the winter, and planted out again the 7th of April last. The roots were then perfecily sound, as well the stems, from both of which, at the time of their exhibition, they had pushed vigorous young shoots, of from six to nine inches in length. Others, of which these formed a part; are now growing luxuriantly, twining round their stakes, and will soon produce a second year's crop. It is not a litile remarkable, that this useful and valuable inhabitant of our gardens, for at least two centuries, should not have been discovered to be perennial by any of our English writers on horticulture. The first erop of our scarlet-runners from year-old roots, of which we have any knowledge, was grown under the superintendence of the exhibitor in 1827.

Lawyers in Parliament.---James I. issued a proclamation, in which the voters for members of parliament were directed not to choose curious and wrangling lawyers, who seek reputation by stirring needless questions.'

Anagram.--Some of our fair collectors of charades, conundrums, and the like, may not be aware that the very anagram of lawyers is, sly ware.

A Chinese Bride.-" The greatest rarity, however, after this feast, was the sight of a Chinese bride. The son of our host haviug been married a few days before, we were honoured (according to the usago of the country, during the honey-moon) with permission to look at his wife, as she stood at the door of her apartment, while we were passing out. The lady was surrounded by several old women, who held tapers and lamps above and about her, that we might have a more complete view of her figure and attire. She was a young person (perhaps 17 years of age,) of middle stature, with very agreeable features and a light complexion, though she seemed to us to have used paint. She wore a scarlet robe, superbly trimmed with gold, which completely covered her from the shoulders to the ground. The sleeves were very full, and along the bottom ran a beautiful fringe of small bells, Her head-dress sparkled with jewels, and was most elegantly beaded with rows of pearls, encircling it like a coronet; from the front of which a brilliant angular ornament hung over her forehead and between her eye-brows. She stood in a modest and graceful attitude, having her eyes fixed on the floor, though she occasionally raised them, with a glance of timia curiosity, towards the spectators. Her bands, joined together, but folded in her robe, she lifted several times towards her face, and then lowered them very slowly. Her attendants, presuming that the guests would be gratified with a peep at that consummation of Chinese beauty, the lady's feet, raised the hem of the mantle from hers, for a moment or two. They were of the most dimivutive kind, and reduced to a mere point at the toe. Her shoes, like the rest of her bridal apparel, were scarlet, embroidered with gold, In justice to the poor creature, during this torturing exhibition, (as we imagine it must have been to her,) her demeanour was natural and becoming, and once or twice something like half a smile, for an instant, showed that she not not entirely unconscious of the admiration which her appearance excited, nor much displeased by it." -Tyermun and Bennet's Travels.

Extract of a Letter from Thomas Jefferson to Major Cartwright, in the Year 1824 -"Your age of 84, and mine of 81 years, insure us a speedy meeting. We may then commune at leisure and more fully, on the good and evil which, in the course of our long lives, we have both witnessed ; and, in the mean time, I pray you to accept assurances of my high veneration and esteem for your person and character." Thomas Jefferson.

Anecdote of William IV.-On a late occasion, his present Majesty, while viewing the royal collection, was observed to pause before a splendid portrait by Vandyke, of that ill-fated monarch Charles I. standing by the side of his horse. When one of the nobleblemen of the court, approaching him, said, “Is not that, Sire, a fine painting?” his Majesty replied “ Yes; and how finely it tells his history? His fate was melancholy, but he sacrificed himself in opposing the just wishes and privileges of his people."Library of the Fine Arts.

Inky Remedies.-If ink would keep away the cholera, surely it has done its part, there having been no less than two hundred and twenty-six works upon the subject published within the last few months.


Cholera Morinis.-An eminent surgeon, Mr. Hope, who has had thirty years' practice, in which he has treated cases of cholera morbus very successfully, has made public the means which he used, for the general good. He says-" The remedy I gave was one drachm of nitrous acid (not nitric-that has foiled me;) one ounce of peppermint-water, or camphor mixture; and forty drops of tincture of opium. A fourth part every three or four hours in a cupful of thin gruel. The belly should be covered with a succession of hot cloths (dry ;) bottles of hot water to the feet, if they can be obtained; constant and small sippings of tinely strained gruel, or sago, or tapioca ; no spirit-Do wine-no fermented liquors, till quite restored.”

Ardent Spirits.-From a calculation made at Exeter Hall, London, it appears that not less than 15,000,0001. are expended annually for distilled spirits.

Pilgrims in the Black Forest.--" I must not forget an interesting party of five pilgrims making a tour of the sanctuaries, and now on their way to Lichenthal. -The leader is a patriarch of seventy-five years or upwards ; snowy locks over his shoulders; en chemise, and chanting as he goes. The next is a stout baur, of repulsive countenance, coarse features, but with a fine harmonious voice. The other three following in a string, are “flowers of the forest, with gipsy eyes and faces, varying in age from fifteen to twenty-one. What can they have done? Not much yet ; but perhaps they wish to do something more, and are in quest or absolution per advance. They ask no charity; -and this being out of character, their

piety It is the performance of a family vow, and is to be noticed with respect and silence. It is not uncommon here, in cases of domestic calamity, or on the accession of unexpecteď happiness, to carry their thanksgivings to some favourite shrine, in the same family order as exhibited by the party now passing."- Dr. Beattie's German Courts.

Patent Bread. A discovery has recently been made in the baking of bread, which promises important consequences. The process, for which Mr. Hicks, of Wimpole-street, has obtained a patent, may be briefly described as follows. His oven is made of iron, of a cylindrical form, so constructed as to be hermetically sealed. The fuel is placed on a plate, which is kept revolving in a circle, under the oven; by which means, the heat is supplied at the smallest expense of fuel. The temperature within the oven is indicated by a thermometer, according to which the application of the fuel is regulated. When the thermometer has reached about 300 degrees, the oven is charged ; and then, hy a simple process, the door is closed, and made air-tight. In a quarter of an hour, the vapour, which is evolved from the dough, passes through a small aperture in the top of the oven,which communicates with a still, and thus undergoes the process of distillation. The only care required is, not to raise the temperature much above 300 degrees. When the alcohol ceases to drop, it is a sure sign that the bread is sufficiently baked. The time to complete a batch is about an hour and three quarters. Each quartern loaf produces about an ounce of proof spirit. The advantages of this invention are many and obvious. The bread is purified, and rendered of superior quality, by the expulsion, in vapour, of all the matter which, when allowed to remain, renders it acid and unwholesome; and this very matter is converted into alcohol, in such quantity as to be an ob. ject of importance. Bread baked in this way, after being kept a week, is more moist, and fresher, than bread baked bythe present process only two days old. We are informed that a company, for the baking of bread under Mr. Hick's patent, is to be immediately established, and to be called the Metropolitan Genuine Bread Company.
