Tun West Coast Railway.— Sir &■ \(Jrey lias tabled a motion praying the Governor to cause to be placed on the Estimates a sufficient sum to connect Christchurch and the West Coast of the Middle Island by railway. The motion coming from him has been a surprise for everyone, and not less so to Mr Montgomery, whose trump card was just such a motion. Evan if Sir George carry his motion there is vory little likelihood ol it being given effect to, as in the juat ,plaoe the O'»lony itself baa not suffioient funds available, and in the second place the Colony cannot make a speoialUoan, inasmuch as it is pledged not to go oa the money market for nearly three years to come. Deceased Wifr'b Sister Bill.— The Deceased Wife's Sister Bill hasbeen thrown out in the Hotuse of Lords on the' third reading, by the bare majority of five. Ther majority of peers against the bill has been Hipidly. decreasing every year, and~next ; year we>hopeto see the measure passed, 'ant th'e'law of England in iiiis.matter the : same' r ag in the colonies. The Flax Trade.— Mr C. J. Johncton has tibled a notice in the House that on the 18th prox. he will move for the appointment of a select committee" for the put pose of enquiring whether prison labor can, with advantage to the State, be employed for the manufacture of New Zea-,. land flax !i for export, the oommittee to report within a month. < ' '•.< j. .l^EAMATie.^The.p^rlp'rin.anceibf the Bleritiew^i>>&tenr,aiid r l)ramatic 'Society an':E,w;aff s sa!ll\aap r^t'passed off even rnofe^ snqcessfulljr 'thpn jOn'the ; preceding ;eve4ing( i ,1 , i.einess of r manner, . of <Jne| of .jttyji wtuJ.h.arl 'fading'gpr^'.B'oeni^d'tii',h.ave 1 !

With one. hand he grasps and; sinks , a slender pole, sometimes fifty feet in length, fitted at the end with a double hook. The .sponge onoe^discoverpd, thehookis deftly 1 inserted'- at'- 'th'e 'rooky ' base, ! and by ft .sudden, jerk the sponge is detached to") b"e brought np on deck. This curt description ,of, what seem* tho simple w.pijk; of flpongo-fishing , givQ? no. idea of th^ real' skill and exertion needed. , The' eye 6f' the fisher has to be trained by t long expprience to' peer into the sea 'and tell the •'commercially valuable sponges from those,, that are 1 worthless. 1 'He must have a Aeffr .hand to manage the swaying hook forty •feet down so as to detach •' the : sponge without a tear. Above all, whits doing.: this with one hand/ he must manipulate with the other'the water glass a^ the "■wavesWayifc sideways atid';Up'''or'dowzu The strain on the eye and riody is most intense, to say nothing of the cramped position and exposure to wind and wet* which firsd'and last 'make -almost every sponge-fisher a victim of acute rheumatism. Yfet-' with all his arduous toili a. faithful sponge-fisher earns not more than £3 a month besides' his " keep" on the boat, which barely deserves the name of existence. ';" '•■- ■;■ ••' ;: ■ \ . ;/. A'.]'PipK ! L i Er> i | I biii'iu. r -;A" lady writes from Australia to '''Troth":; — "IconBtantly see in the papers sent mo from England accounts of attango inquiries put by sofvants, {o their employers. While arranging jwith a cook some ' time ago I had a most' extraordinary "request made to ma. The woman asked if she might bring hor baby, which, she added hastily,, would be no trouble, as it was pickled. It turned out that.' the poor little scrap was born and had died while its father was absent on a voyage, from' which; ho never returned. The mother, anxious to' preserve the remains, and being ignorant of any other met ho J, piokled .thelnfant. She became ho attached to her dead caild in this state that she objected to be without it. I confess I felt a sympathy if or her and granted her request. I have nov,er, regretted i£: she, is a capital Bervanv, ana Her poor little relio'is quite unobjeotionable. I feel sure that your readers will view with" horror the idea of fetich ah' inmate— yet, 'when rich people incur 1 vast expense to- embalm, and even orematej their} "deadj'r great sympathy is often felt .with them, and no repugnance shown towards the 'expensive, remains. My, poor: cook felt all the. seatimeat of wishing to have her beloved dead, Was it her fault that her way; of having it was necessarily cheap andforiginal ?" \ 1 The 'Last Steaw.^- A London raaga. zine for 1794 contains' ■ the following almost' unique death announcement':— "In childbed, of her. thirtieth child, jthe wife of Mr Joseph ;Sima',' at the Bell Inn, Cambridge, county Gloucester;"' A Jew de Mot.— Somebody asked Baron Rothßehild to take .venison. ■|' No, 1 ' said the Baron, "I never eatsh wenshon ; I don't tink it) iehi.so .coot as mutton.": "Oh," said the Baron's friend, "I wonder at your saying so ; if venison is not, better than mutton, why does venison" cost ao much' more?" "Vy," replied the Baron, "I.yill,tell you vy ; in dis 'vatld de people always prefersh' vat is (Zee) 1 to vat ish sheep," : The most appalling case of deafness that, we, -ever came across outside of an asylum* was that of an old lady who lives across the, street from the arsenal yard. On a royal birthday they fired a salute of 21 guns. The old lady was observed to start and listen as the last gnn was fired, ; and then ahe exclaimed, " Come in." f\ ii. The! title of .the lesson : was "The Rich Young Man," and the golden text was " One thing thou laokest. " A teacher in the primary olaas asked a little tot to repeat the two, and looking earnestly into the young, lady's face the child' said :— : " Ona thing.' thou Jackest— a rich young man." ..

By preserving in the use of Hdlloway'fl preparations, tone is conferred on the stomach and frame generally. iThpnsands of persons have testified that by'the nre of these remedies alone they have been restored to health after every otEir means had failed.
