Father Chimtquv.— The Orangemen in New Zealand are likely to take Father Chiniquy under their protection. The rev. gentleman leaves Sydney for Auckland on December 23, and will probably deliver lectures in all the important towns in New Zealand. A Prolonged Silence. —An ex-mayor of St. Louis asked his wife to sign a conveyance of some property which he wished to sell, and, to his surprise and she refused. JJe swore that unless she complied he would never speak to her again ; but she still remained obdurate. This occurred sixteen years ago ; and although they had being a loving couple, and have ever since lived in the same house, they have never, from the moment of the dispute, direetty exchanged a word. When circumstances make communication between them absolutely necessary, they have hitherto respectively addressed their daughter, and she spoke for both. Their questions so put were always framed in the third person. The daughter unfortunately died at the beginning of September ; but the ex-mayor and his wife, although feeling her loss acutely, still decline to open their mouths for purposes of mutual consolation or interchange of thought; and it seems probable that this strange state of affairs will continue until one or both of them can speak no more.—“Pall Mall Gazette.”
