SIR HENRY NORMAN.
Brisbake, May 23. Sir Henry Norman, Governor, denies the-rumor that it was his intention to resign before the expiration of his term of office.
A doctor of Cremona, with a large band of peasants for its neighbourhood, has just started from Uruguay, where he proposes to establish them as an exclusively Socialist colony. The Trinidad "New Era" records the death of "an old woman " at the age of 117 years. She was born in 1773, and there appears to be no doubt as to herjage. Such a reimrkable instance of longevity in the Tropics has seldom or never been heard of. A lunatic in Melbourne escaped from the asylum on the 6th instant, and give vent to his joy at being once more at large by jumping over a bridge 100 feet to the water. He Was retnrned to his puarters little the worse for his ducking. Mr R- Elston's Rink de Paris is to' open again on Saturday evening. The energetic manager has arranged everything as usual for the comfort of patrons, and has added a brass band as a permanent attraction during the season. Private Clubs will be specially arranged with. At a recent tea-party in the Highlands, a young man who had been relating his more than wonderful exploits in various parts of the globe, was not a little set aback by the remark of an old traveller—"Young man, ain't you ashamed to talk so when there are older liars at the tablet"
