At a meeting in the Chapter-house, St. Paul’s, it has, at the instance cf Canos Scott-Holland, been decided to open a subscription for a permanent memorial to the late Dr W. H. Monte, chief musical editor of ‘Hymns Ancient and Modern.’ The work attained probably the largest circulation on record, no fewer than twenty millions of copies of it having been sold within the first eighteen years. It is suggested that the memorial shou'd consist of a monument, to be placed over Dr Monte's grave at Highgate, and a marble slab to be fixed in the church of St. Matthias, StokeNewington, where he was organist for upwards of thirty-five years. Don’t call a very large, strong, sinewy man a prevaricator. If yon are sure he is a prevaricator, hire another to break the news to him. Mamma: “ Why did yon tell me a lie, Johnny ?” Johnny; “ Because, mamma, you wouldn’t give me time ta think of s truth that would fit.” Overheard at a cattle show • “ Annie, do you like beasts ? ” She (with vivacity): “Am I to consider that as a proposal' sir?” v *
A railroad within the Arctie circle is proposed. The extreme route is through, Western Siberia and the extreme north of Russia.
