Wonderful Officialism. —The N._Z. census returns are made up in a comical manner. Billiard-table keepers and markers are classed with actors; so are bootmakers! A man whose occupation is unsavory but necessary, is catalogued as “ dealing in clay, earthenware, and glass;” a cemeterykeeper comes under the head of “ others connected with religion ; ” and a Turkishbath keeper is, according to the RegistrarGeneral, one of “ others engaged in board and lodging !” Served Him Right.—The deposed Fijian King, Cakobau, was recentlyannoyed by a drunken man in an hotel at Levuka. Old Cakobau, without more ado, caught the white man a swinging backhander on the mouth, which knocked him over ; and then the old king stood quite still, and didn’t speak a word till the prostrate votary of Bacchus had got up and walked away, which he did without a murmur, even of delight at the honor of having been smitten by the ex-king of the Cannibal Islands. Holloway's Pills. —These Pills are more efficacious in strengthening a debilitated constitution than any other medicine in the world. Persons of a nervous habit of body, and all who are suffering from weak digestive organs, or whose health has become deranged by bilious affection, disordered stomach, or liver complaints, should lose no time in giving these admirable Pills a fair trial. Coughs, colds, asthma, or shortness of breath are also within the range of the sanative powers of this very remarkable medicine. The cures effected by these Pills are not superficial or temporary, but complete any permanent. They are as mild as they are efficacious, aud may be given with confidence to delicate females and young children. Their action on the liver, stomach, and bowels is immediate, beneficial, and lasting, restoring order and health in every case.— Advt
