Too Much Makkied. —A young man resident in that “ paradise of the perfect,” yclept Birmingham, has involved his country in the consideration of some prettily-knotted points. This adolescent Midlander has succeeded in concocting a puzzle compared with which the Bend Or case, added to the game of fifteen mixed up with the identity of the “ Man in the Iron Mask,” and subdivided by the Queen’s Regulations, are all as the mere dust of a balance.

The first one was married to him in due form ; the second one is said to have been already married before she married our hero, and was therefore no wife at all ; and the third wife w r as married on the decease of the first wife and therefore is the only legal wife which this Lothario has now got.
