Snow in Scotian# jn July. —A correspondent of the Elgin Gourant reports that a strange occurrence took place in Strathspey on the first Wednesday in July. While the temperature in the whole of the north was warm, and heavy thunder showers were falling at intervals, there was a downfall of snow, confined, it is true, to the limited area of about one field on the farm of Captain Maim, Ballintomb, but it covered it to the depth of nearly three inches. “Save This Owe.”—A little five-ycai’-old friend; who was always allowed to phase the prettiest kitten for his pet and playmate before the other nurslings were drowned, was taken to his mother’s sick room the other morning to see two tiny new twin babes. He looked reflectively from one to the other for a minute or two, then poking his chubby finger into the cheek of the plumpest baby, ho said decidedly, “ Save this one.” Danger A- head. — A tall stalwart gentleman (says the Sydney Bulletin) who is well known in Moore Park, where the color of his locks corresponds with the warmth of his temper, thrust his head out of the window of a stationai’y train and angrily demanded of the guard “why the d train was not going on ?” The guard quietly responded : “ Oh, put your head in ; how d’ye think the train’s to go ahead when the danger signal is stickin’ out?” The crestfallen footballer’s look was a study. He is now known as “the danger signal.” An Exodus of Capital. —The numbers of working men who left for Australia by the Hero and Wakatipu last week (says the New Zealand Times ) took with them, in the aggregate, a large amount of capital. During the early part of the week there was quite a “run” on the Post Office Savings Bank, and the number ofL3O, L4O, and LSO deposits withdrawn in so short a period was wholly unprecedented. It is estimated that a sum between LIO,OOO and L 15,000 has been taken from Wellington in this manner and is on its way to Australia.
