He was seen in company with two others. Mr. Fuller has added him to the many fine specimens in his possession. In dissecting him, there was found in his stomach nearly half a pint of shrimps.-Dublin Observer, June 16, 1832.
Extempore Preaching in the Church. The following is the copy of a mandate addressed by Charles II, to the University of Cambridge :-" Vice Chancellor and Gentlemen,- Whereas his Majesty is informed that the practice of reading sermons is generally taken up by the preachers before the Vuiversity, and therefore continues even before himself: his Majesty hath commanded me to signify to you his pleasure that the said practice, which took its beginning from the disorders of the late times, be wholly laid aside, and that the said preachers deliver their sermons, both in Latin and English, by memory without book, as a way of preaching which his ajesty judgeth most agreeable to the use of foreign churches, to the custom of the University heretofore, and to the nature of that holy exercise, and that his Majesty's commands in these premises may be truly regarded and observed, his further pleasure is, that the names of all such ecclesiastical persons as shall continue the present supine and slothful way of preaching, be from time to time signified to me by the Vice-Chancellor for the time being. on pain of his Majesty's displeasure."-- Monmouth, Oct. 8, 1074.

Progress of Crime in London. - I had the opportunity of strictly examining more than a hundred thieves, between eight and fourteen years, as to the immediate cause of their becoming thieves; and in pipeteen cases out of twenty it appeared that the boy had pot committed his first crime spontaneously, but had been persuaded to commence the career of thieving by persons whose business is to practise this kind of seduction, The most womerous class of such seducers consists of experienced thieves, both men and boys, who look out for boys pot criminal, to which they represent the life of a thief as abounding in pleasure. --Edward Gibbon Wakefield's Facts relating to The Punishment of Death.
Wealth.- Among the European pobility, probably the Marquis of Stafford is the wealthiest individual. Ilis income goes beyond £300,000 sterling. The Duke of Medina Coeli, whose wealth is generally takeu as a standard and term of comparison, possesses only 114,000,000 of reals, about £115,000, and he is obliged to keep a regal establishment, as he still keeps up his pretensions to the crown of Spain. His household amounts to more than two hundred persons.
Mutton.--According to a recent traveller, (Walsh,) fat sheep are so plentiful in the Brazils, that they are used as fuel to feed their lime-kilps.
Languages.-A Russian has published " a view of all the known languages and their dialects." In this hook we find, in all, 937 Asiatic, 587 European, 226 African, and 1264 American languages and dialects, enumerated and classed. The Bible is translated into 139 languages.
Transition. - A hackney-coachman in Moorfields was lately called from his stand, to take possession of an estate of £150 a year, to which he succeeded by the death of a relation at Edmonton. The poor fellow and his family were in the utmost distress, having been threatened by their landlord, only a few hours before the glad tidings arrived, to be turned out of their lodgings, in consequence of their inability to pay off some old arrears of rent.
Extraordinary Instance of Somnambulism.-A short time since, a lady in Liverpool had a servant, who, upon coming down stairs every morning, found the fire lit, the kettle boiling, and all other things in a state of readiness, For some time she did not com. municate this singular fact to any one, but at length she told her mistress ; who immediately set to work to inquire into the matter. One morning she rose early, and took her station in the parlour. After waiting a short time, she saw her servant come into the room, fast asleep, but dressed, and immediately proceed to perform her various occupations, which baving effected, she went off to bed again. The next morning she repeated this extraordinary feat, when her mistress awoke her, showing who it was that performed her work for her.- Manchester Paper.
