tons and a half, and consumed from seven to nine hundred weight of food in a day, and about thirty-five pails of water, The jury returned a verdict, “ That the decased came by his death accidentally."

Lately, a young man, named Logbotton, was detected in the act of stealing walnuts, at Parlington. In his hurry to escape he fell from the tree, and was killed on the spot. This was on a Sunday !--Morning Post.

Until the year 1214, the Chief Magistrate of London was elected for life. The title of Lord, in addition to that of Mayor, was first granted by Richard tlie Second, to Walworth, who slew Wat Tyler.-The same.

Another of those melancholy accidents arising out of the careless habits of sporting gentlemen, bas just taken place at Higham, the seat of Francis Bentworth, Esq. near Ashby-deJa-Zouch. As Mr. Hointrough was passing through the small gate that leads from the pleasure grounds into the wood walks, the trigger of his gun was struck by a projecting piece of the latch, and, shocking to relate, the contents lodged in his head. He expired before he could be taken back to the house. To add to the distress of this event, he had just been appointed to a lucrative situation in South America,

and had not been married a week. James Rowe, a driver of a stage-coach, was ordered to pay a fine of tuo pounds, and costs, for cruelty to his horses; and was committed to prison till the fine should be paid.-Boxstreet Intelligence.
