An Airy Nothing.—According to a Radical paper "the poor man's tobacco pays 10½ d. in the shilling to taxation, while the rich man's cigar pays only ½ d. in the shilling to taxation." This may be very true, but is the question worth discussing? It is sure to end in smoke!
How they are served in Servia.—Among some interesting items, a telegram informed us how "the Young King presided at a Council of Ministers. The ceremonial is the same as during his father's time, only two guards stand at the door, and refreshments are handed round at short intervals ." The italics are ours. Rather! What a pleasant Cabinet Council. Why isn't the convivial plan adopted here? Mr. G., in the chair, would knock the table with the hammer every ten minutes and call out, "Give your orders, Gents! the Waiter's in the room!" A real Harmonious Meeting.
'WITHOUT PREJUDICE.' "WITHOUT PREJUDICE. " Miss Jeannie ( to Elderly Spinster ). "I'm glad Maud is going to be Married to Sir Guy. I'm sure they'll be happy, they're so well Matched!" Elderly Spinster aforesaid ( who has had her eye on Sir Guy for the last two years ). "I don't at all agree with you. Sir Guy would have done far better to have chosen One of his own Height!"
'SCOT-FREE. ' "SCOT-FREE." Sir Henry Hawkins ( to Justice ). " I can't touch them. It's time You did!" [ See next page. ]
Habeas Corpus Suspended.—What is wanted just now is a "J bez Corpus" Act.
TO BLACKHAM'S BOYS. ( The Australian Cricketers have arrived in England. ) Welcome, John McCarthy Blackham, And his boys! 'Tis safe to back 'em, Giffen, Bannerman, and Turner, To teach Bull—a cheerful learner! Austral Cricket "up to date." Bruce and Trumble—rather late— Owing to Lutetia's charms! Soon will join their chums in arms. Lyons and M'leod are ready; Dashing George and Alec steady, And the others, prompt to pitch 'em (Stumps) on the old sward at Mitcham. Punch will wish you all fair weather, And fair luck! Now, all together!!! May we meet 'em oft—and whack 'em Fairly—these brave boys of Blackham!

Query at some Fashionable Sea-side Resort.—Do the unpleasant odours noticeable at certain times arise from the fact of the tide being high? If so, is the tide sometimes higher than usual, as the—ahem!—odours certainly are?
